    Fantastic

    I love this fantastically fun, sexy read that is a definite homerun for this debut author. Parts of the story are laugh out loud funny with some truly emotional parts that keep you flipping the pages. Lucy and Will are both strong wonderful characters and the author did a great job of letting us get to know these two. The story has a nice steady pace making it a relaxing easy read. I for one am looking forward to more from this author and definitely recommend this one.

    love this book

    Lucy is starting a new job at KDVX. She is working her way towards being an anchor or reporter. She has come a long way from the fat girl in her past who was bullied. Will is back home in Confluence. He is back to claim his rightful ownership of his mother’s television company. His birthday is soon and his lawyers are fighting his dad’s appeal to the will. Will is not giving up his mother’s legacy without a fight. He is determined not to let his father control his life any longer. He has paid for his mistakes of reality tv for far too long. When these two meet and go undercover as honeymooners, things shift in the universe and Lucy is back in the past as the fat girl with a crush. She wants nothing more than to push Will away, but Will has other plans. This is the first book by Christina Hovland that I have read. I found her book to be fun and engaging. A steady pace read with some hot romance that flows nicely. The characters were endearing and the book touches on many real issues that people face every day, giving this book a realistic feel. The book digs into problems with self-esteem and bullies. It also deals with grief and loss. I feel as if the author left this book open for Katie’s story to be told next. I hope so. I am interested to see if her and Jeff make a go of it. Simon could use a women in his life to fill the empty roll of his mother. Overall this book was an emotional and inspiring read. The characters were relatable and engaging. The book was fun and highly entertaining. I found it to be sweet and endearing. I love the stubbornness of Lucy and the sweet caring side of Simon. It was an easy book to read that I became invested in and would love to read more about the gang in Confluence.

    William and Lucy's story

    This was not bad, but the story wasn't for me. The writing itself flowed okay, but I wasn't a fan of the story. Lucy is a former "ugly duckling", and now she's beautiful with self esteem issues. That doesn't bother me. What bothers me is that she holds it against William that 8 years ago he didn't notice her. Really?! She was 17, and he was college age. Most guys that age are not interested in younger girls. Her friend Katie acts like William is the scum of the earth, and Lucy agrees. I just couldn't get past that. They've never had a relationship, and I'm not sure why it makes William a horrible person that he doesn't remember her. I didn't really buy them as a couple either. This was a first for me from this author, but I would give her another read. I voluntarily reviewed an advanced readers copy of this book.

    Welcome to Confluence

    Welcome to Confluence, home to Camelot and Lucy's new job at the local TV station. For her it's just another step to where she feels she belongs, in front of the camera rather than behind the scenes. Accepting this job for her was a good thing, that is until she is faced with her long time crush William or Will as she calls him. She's staying at her friend Katie's place, Camelot which is in reality an old hotel converted into rather tacky units run by Dixie, a feisty old gal with a shotgun and not afraid to use it. Her son Jeff is the sheriff and he lives there also with his son Simon. She gets a surprise when William moves into the unit next door to her. He just wants to be close to her, he's crushing on her something fierce. All Lucy remembers is the William from 10 years ago when she was an intern on a reality show he was on, back then her physical appearance was not what it is today and she basically lived her entire young life being bullied and made to feel less than by her parents and everyone around her. Garnering a nickname I'm not even going to repeat because it's not necessary, she still struggles deeply with her traumatic past. Will doesn't recognize her. She does a great job at the news station and Will is set to take over the entire business which his deceased mother left to him when he turned 30. Outing his father who is a class A jackhat. He avoids his father like the plague and is trying to put his past behind him as well. Those days of that reality TV show were not who he is and never was. The story unfolds as these two edge closer to each other. Lucy holding back and when they go on an assignment together, a fake honeymoon couple checking out a local lodge that is supposedly dirty pool they have no choice but to grow closer. Will is busy fielding calls because the his role as owner and boss soon approach. Lucy's way to keep Will at arms length is to pull the employee boss card. Lucy also inherits a cat from the a neighbor who passed away who seems to like her. The cat doesn't like Will. When Lucy takes a few steps out on her own, because no one else was available Will gets angry. Angry Will is not a nice Will. I didn't like angry Will which made me question nice Will as well. Things escalate between these two, Will is pushy and when he realizes who Lucy is from the past he blows a gasket. He calls her that god awful name, for once she stands up for herself albeit quietly and knows she's done with Will. Will is angry and spewing his crap leaves. Good on him. Honestly Will knew how to turn it on, but don't assert yourself because he's lop your head off. The stuff he slung at Lucy made me cringe and it made me angry. The book was well written and the plot was solid. I liked Lucy, I wished her the best because she deserved it. She deserved better and more. Will,yeah not so much. He ran too hot and cold for me. His mouth was something I don't think I could have forgiven. Given that this story seems to evoke so much emotion from readers is good writing. I look forward to reading about Katie. I'm going to assume she's up next. Big thumbs up. *arc from NetGalley and Entangled for an honest review. All thoughts are my own.**

    Great read!!

    Lucy is just about to start her new job in Confluence when she sees her former crush, William. She's worked really hard to leave behind the girl she was when she knew him and he's worked really hard to shed the image of reality tv star playboy. He doesn't remember her and doesn't understand why she seems to go out of her way to avoid him. When an assignment comes up that needs a couple posing as honeymooners, he insists she goes with him. Their chemistry is off the charts and their talent for bringing the story to life for their viewers is fantastic. This is my first book by this author and I definitely liked the writing style. I would have loved William so much more if he didn't prove to be the shallow, reality tv star he was thought to be throughout the story. Some of the drama felt unnecessary but overall I really enjoyed this story. The side characters were awesome and I really hope to see HEAs for them too!! *This is my voluntary review of an advanced reader copy*
