    Loved it

    Loved it!! This is the second book in the Hearts and Crafts series and I was worried I wouldn't like it as much as I did the first. I was wrong!! I loved Callie and Bennett's story. Take a little football, a hunky coach, some dancing with the stars, and a beautiful dance coach and you've got yourself a great story! This one was fun, sexy, and emotional at times. Definitely one I would recommend to everyone.

    Small town romance - very enjoyable!

    This small town romance between a bakery shop owner and football coach is filled with friends, laughter and romance but also includes pain, loss and heartache. Both Callie and Bennett work with high school students in Preston, Missouri. He is the head football coach and a science teacher with a past that has left him with a few scars – both physical and mental. Callie owns Callie’s Confections and has been roped into coaching the high school dance team. In addition, there is a dance competition that Callie and Bennett need to prepare for and both of them hope to win. The story is somewhat predictable but the feisty female and hunky somewhat troubled male have a story that provided me with a fun afternoon read and it was an enjoyable afternoon indeed. This is the first book I have read by this author and am hoping to read more of her work in the future. Thank you to NetGalley and St. Martin’s Press for the copy of this book to read and review.

    Really great small town, football romance

    I really liked this! I like things like Friday Night Lights, so this was right up my alley, and I really enjoyed Callie and Bennett's relationship. They are good for each other, and I think they have excellent chemistry, and I liked how their story seemed believable, and they seemed like real people. I do wish it moved a bit faster, but I was interested the whole time. I like the dancing aspect because that adds an element of sexy, sensual-ness, and it's fun to read about Bennett learning the dance, and the sex scenes between the two were excellent. The ending was great, I like where the story went, and to see a deeper level to Callie and Bennett's relationship. I also love how strong and independent Callie is, and I love small town stories. I haven't read the first book, but I would like to, and I want to read the next book in the series because I am really interested in what made Lindsey so weary of Derek, so I will definitely be looking for the release of that book. So far, this series is wonderful!

    Definitely a WIN, WIN.

    Win Me Over is the perfect title for this novel. Romance at it's finest. Nicole Michaels fascinating story is both entertaining and touching. Love the characters. Enjoyed the story and found a new author in the process. Definitely a WIN, WIN. Received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

    spunky and fun

    Callie is wonderfully spunky and fun - sassy and a great match for Bennett. She helps him not take things too seriously and brings out a more playful side to the devoted coach. I really like how dedicated both are to their students and their friends. Their interactions are full of humor and heat – the time they spend together learning to dance is the perfect playful courtship to taking their relationship further. I also love her friends and her parents - they are more bright spots in an already shining story. And so, I adored this book … until about 4/5 of the way in. And then, while I still liked it, I was a little disappointed as well. There’s a tragedy that shakes Callie and Bennett’s world and while I think Michaels handles the fallout from their perspective very well, there were more people involved and that was glossed over. I think if maybe this event had happened a little earlier in the book, there's great potential for additional character and relationship development. It isn’t enough of an issue for me to lower my ranking of the book, but it is enough to leave me a little dissatisfied. Outside of that, though, I did enjoy the ending. I think that the way that Callie and Bennett face their troubles fits well with the people we’d grown to love. It left me a little bruised for them, which shows how much I’d begun to care, but then I gave a little cheer when they figured it all out and started moving forward together. If you are like me and this is your first book by Michaels (of course), no worries because it can totally stand on its own. We do get more of Anne and Mike, who were the characters from the first book, but I totally wasn’t lost by not having the details from Start Me Up. Although I’m really looking forward to the next book, Draw Me Close, because what we were given a glimpse of here definitely has me curious about what is coming for Lindsey & Derek!
