2 in 1: A Wedding at Meadows Shore & My Sweetest Sasha by Eva Charles

I have 2 wonderful romances from the Meados Shore series from author Eva Charles for you today.:

Prepare to fall in love with the Claytons and Harringtons, a wealthy and powerful New England family with a rich Portuguese heritage. Visit their beloved Meadows Shore nestled in the charming seaside town of Fair Harbor, where you'll enjoy love, laughter, loyalty, and an abundance of mouth-watering food. 

A Wedding at Meadows Shore
Meadows Shore Book 1 (May 2016)

Smart, stubborn, and strong, family means everything to her. After a failed marriage, she creates a new life for herself, one that excludes men. Sophie doesn't trust men, or maybe she doesn't trust her judgment when it comes to them. Then she meets Max, a man who leads his life in a way that challenges those very trust issues. 

Max Parker is a handsome playboy with a taste for younger women and a past that haunts him. He keeps what's left of his heart well protected behind a cool exterior, and fills the emptiness with lucrative business deals, punishing exercise, and women he'll never love. But there's another side to Max, one that he keeps well hidden, until Sophie blows into his life like a whirlwind and knocks him off his game, threatening to expose his darkest secrets. 

Every once in a while the first book in a series will come along and I know instantly I am going to love the characters.  I also know that I will eagerly await every book that comes after because I want to see everyone get their HEA.  A Wedding  at Meadows Shore is the first in a series about a large Portuguese family who love fiercely and loudly.   It made me wish I came from a big noisy family.

I absolutely loved Sophie and Max's story.  I thought they were a perfect match..  Their playful banter was laugh out loud funny at times.  Both of them have demons.  I applauded Sophie for her decision to walk away until Max agreed to get help.  What I also loved about their love story is that it took place over a long period of time, as in more that a few weeks.  It just made everything that much more believable to me.  I also adored Sophie's family.  Even though they constantly tesed each other you could tell they all had a close bond.

My Sweetest Sasha

Meadows Shore Book 1 (June 2016)

Cole Harrington, the oldest of those swoon-worthy Harrington brothers, is a gifted trauma surgeon with a cocky smile and a whole lot of swagger. He's assigned an executive coach after he smashes the thermostat in the operating room to smithereens.

Alexa Petersen is a nice girl from Minnesota who's been tasked with shadowing the naughty trauma surgeon, and writing a report to end his promising career. While she might prefer pretty lace panties, Alexa's not afraid to slip on a pair of steel-toed boots when Cole needs to be knocked down a notch or two.

Hospital drama and small-town woes, the truth is obscured by secrets and lies, and nothing is as it appears—not even Cole and Alexa.

In My Sweetest Sasha,  Alexa has been hired to shadow Cole and see if he is really a menace to the hospital as some in the administration would like to think he is. Over their time together, Alexa sees deep inside the man and can't help falling for him.  I flew through this story just as fast as the first one.  I loved Cole and Alexa.  I also loved that their relationship grew over time.  They even fell in love before even kissing.  That was kind of refreshing. What Alexa did for Cole and his brothers in the end was so touching! 

 The only thing I wish I had in this story was a bit more resolution to the whole Chett/report issue.  I would have liked to know that he really had what was coming to him. I highly recommend this book as well as the first one in the series.  I can't wait for Drew's story in the fall of 2016!

About the author:

Eva Charles is the author of the multi-titled Meadows Shore Series that chronicles the lives and loves of the Clayton-Harrington family. She invites you to visit their beloved Meadows Shore nestled in the charming seaside town of Fair Harbor, where you will enjoy love, laughter, loyalty, and an abundance of mouth-watering food, Portuguese style.

After being a confirmed city-girl for more than thirty-five years, Eva moved to beautiful Western Massachusetts in 2014. There, she found herself living in the woods with no job, no friends (unless you count the turkeys, deer, and coyotes roaming the backyard), and no children underfoot, wondering what on earth she'd been thinking. But as it turned out, it was the perfect setting to take all those yarns spinning in her head and weave them into a romantic tale.

When she's not writing, trying to squeeze information out of her tight-lipped sons, or playing with the two cutest dogs you've ever seen, Eva's creating chapters in her own love story.
