    Great enemies to lovers romance

    So Close combines some of my favorite romance tropes. It has the feel of a small-town romance, and we also get some enemies to lovers fun with Auburn and Trey going toe to toe over the Beachcrest Inn. Plus, it's kinda-sorta a second chance romance. Not in the traditional sense because these two haven't been a couple before, but they've both been burned by love and neither is really willing to try again, and they both deserve a second chance at love. There is an ex-wife, but thankfully, that's not where the angst comes from. In fact, she doesn't even make an appearance. Nope, this is all Auburn and Trey, and whether they're in a battle of wills or tearing each other's clothes off, and they do plenty of both, they're fabulous together. Trey has such a tough exterior, but he's all heart on the inside, and Auburn is exactly what he needs to learn to let his softer side show. In the same turn, he's just the guy to help Auburn trust men again, or at least one man. These two just fit perfectly, like pieces of a puzzle. Neither of them is perfect, by any means. They both have their flaws, but they're perfect for each other. This is one completely engaging read from start to finish. It's got plenty of heart, well-timed wit, and a couple sexy enough to burn up the pages. And to think, this is just the start of the series! I can't wait to see what's next for Tierney Bay.

    So Close is so lovely!

    Four and a half stars. Serena Bell’s So Close is the first in the new Tierney Bay series, and is about Auburn Campbell and Trey Xavier. She’s managed the Beachcrest Inn in Tierney Bay for several years, and loved it for much longer. Carl, the current owner, would love for her to be the next owner. But his grandson, one Trey Xavier, needs the property to be sold. Auburn convinces Trey to give her a week to change his mind. Naturally that week gives them the chance to see how all those antagonistic sparks really are sparks of a different kind of fire, and that Beachcrest magic is pretty powerful stuff. Serena Bell’s characters aren’t perfect by any means, but they end up relating beautifully. So Close is full of heart and plenty of heat, and is a fabulous start to an enticing series. Can’t wait for more!

    Romance with heart

    As always, Serena Bell’s newest romance has plenty of heart, plenty of steaminess, and strong MCs who know what they want and are willing to go after it. After almost losing her identity to a controlling boyfriend, Auburn is back at the Oregon seaside inn that was her employer and second home throughout HS and college, trying to get her life back on track and reclaim her dreams. She’s always dreamed of eventually buying the inn from her surrogate dad once he retires but after he suffers a heart attack, she’s in for quite a shock when his wealthy, arrogant grandson shows up and reveals that not only is he the majority owner of the inn, he has already arranged to sell it to a development company. Trey learned a long time ago that the only way to protect those he loves is to make a lot of money. Now he’s in a bind. He needs to sell the inn to buy enough time to save his own company and prevent 150 employees from losing their jobs, but to do so, he’ll have to ignore his grandfather’s wishes and crush Auburn’s hopes, in spite of the very inconvenient attraction and admiration he’s felt for her from the moment he saw her. Auburn will need every bit of her strength and smarts to fight him and to get the means to buy the inn. This was a lovely romance. Auburn and Trey were combustible together with chemistry in spades. The setting was gorgeous and made me want to immediately book a long weekend at the Beachcrest Inn. Looking forward to more stories set in Tierney Bay, most likely featuring Auburn’s siblings. I received an ARC from the author. All opinions expressed in this review are my own.
