Stubbornness meets Willpower
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Book Length (Est.): 83 Pages
Fern Taylor has sworn off men for good. After her boyfriend abandons her and their infant daughter, she knows that no one can be trusted with her heart or her family. She has kept busy raising her precocious little girl and selling her handmade wares at the natural foods grocery store she runs with her tight-knit family. As far as Fern is concerned, her life is so full there’s no room for a man in it.
That is, until she meets Adam Price. At the recommendation of his colleagues at the local community college, he stops by the Taylor Family Store for lunch one afternoon. And while he enjoyed their homemade cuisine, it is the store’s cute and cranky owner that keeps him coming back day after day.
Despite herself, Fern can’t resist her growing attraction to the handsome professor, especially when she sees how good he is with her daughter. Once she decides to give Adam an honest chance, Fern comes dangerously close to falling for him. But when she uncovers a link between their pasts, Fern is faced with an impossible decision: protect the life she built for her and her daughter, or take a chance on the one guy in six years who has swept her off her feet.
*I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review*
Fern decided to swear off men after her daughter’s father walked out on them. She put all her focus into her family and store. That is until a determined man keeps showing up at her store insistent on the fact she likes him as much as he does her.
“Adam really had been thinking about me. The proof was all over his handsome face. And I was going to push him away.”
Adam has one hell of a way of introducing himself to Fern the first time. He seems to take straight forwardness to a new level. He’s sweet and determined he’s the man Fern needs.
The premise was good, but it lacked depth. It steadily jumps forward over small amounts of time and in doing so I think it lost a lot of character development time. If you’re looking for a quick sweet read then Believe In Me is perfect, but if you want something that will capture your attention for more than the few hours this will take to read then it may not be the book for you.
