Grayson Coleman has just moved home to Butler, Vermont after spending years working for a high-powered law firm in Boston. He’s looking for a simpler, less stressful existence in the sleepy little mountain town where he grew up with his siblings and Abbott cousins. Once the holidays are over, he plans to hang out a shingle and open a new general law practice. After helping to raise his seven younger siblings, the last thing on Grayson’s mind is a family of his own.

Emma Mulvaney is enjoying a break from her reality as a busy single mother in New York City while she and her adorable daughter, Simone, spend the holidays in Vermont with Emma’s sister, Lucy, and Lucy’s future in-laws, the Abbotts. After meeting Abbott cousin Grayson Coleman and talking to him for hours, Emma is nervous and excited to have dinner alone with him after sharing her deepest, most personal secrets with him.

Will that first night be the start of something new for the jaded lawyer and the selfless single mom or will a holiday week flirtation turn into something much bigger than either of them ever expected?

Come back to Butler, Vermont for more of the charming Abbott family, their matchmaking father and grandfather and of course, Fred the Moose.

       

This is the continuation of the much loved (by me) Green Mountain series with a different publisher.  I loved every book and probably should have rated them all higher than I did. Will Abbott from All You Need is Love, book 1, will be my book boyfriend forever. While so many books are quickly forgotten,  I remember these. The relationships of other couples are shared in little vignettes of precious dialogue which touch the heart, scattered in the new book. The characters in the series have become so important to me. The Abbott family with its 10 kids, their cousins and their friends in this small town in Vermont are caring, funny, sexy and interesting.

Emma and her daughter, Simone, were in her sister, Lucy’s story, I Saw Her Standing There.  Grayson and Emma jump into a relationship and other than the distance between New York City and Vermont don’t have issues with each other. They both have some personal difficulties in their past, so they can understand one another.

I do wish there had been more shared depth of their relationship. It felt a bit insta-love and absolutely insta-sex. Maybe because of the other couples, the child Simone, and the shadows of their past, there was less time focused on the present time together. I would have adored more time with dialogue rather than more time with sex.

The feels are amazing throughout Every Little Thing and the sexy times are naughtier than the previous books. It felt like comfort food – I was nearly in a bliss coma the whole time I read. I know the people, how good they are and the HEA will happen. To me this series is a MUST read, and to follow the relationships read it in order. I do LOVE it, and of course, Fred.

Thrifty Thursday: Fool for Love by Marie Force

Posted August 11, 2016 by Anne in Book Review | 3 Comments

     the purpose of thrifty thursday is to pick a book which was free (at some point). Kindle freebie on June 5, 2016 Overall rating 4.24 with 8,816 rating and 415 reviews The first book, Maid for Love, in the Mcarthys of Gansett Island series, is also a freebie which I read 4 years ago.  The series has been released over the last 5 years and now has 15 books available. The first book was a quick, easy read but while I enjoyed the characters it was just my least favorite troupe, rich guy meets girl with less than nothing. Some of it was just ridiculous, even for fiction. So how did I end up reading book 2, Fool for Love?  First, it was […]


Dual Review: Fatal Identity by Marie Force

Dual Review: Fatal Identity by Marie Force

       Anne’s Review I started reading the Fatal series since romantic suspense is one of my favorite genres. This is a unique concept which I must praise the author for tackling. It features one couple throughout showing the growth of their professional and personal lives. I LOVE it so much. These people feel so real to me after ten books. I care about them and what happens to them. I’m glad Sam is such a strong heroine; she is not overshadowed by her guy. I felt her more in this book than Nick. Both Sam and Nick have great connections with their co-workers and I enjoy all their relationships. The layers of family and friends with their joys and issues add so much to […]


Ain’t She Sweet by Marie Force

Ain’t She Sweet by Marie Force

      I’ve enjoyed every book in the Green Mountain Series. It’s somewhere between traditional contemporary romance and the newer, more realistic contemporary romance.  The setting is a small town in Vermont with limited to no cell phone service.  It’s close enough to New York and Boston to draw in elements of them.  The romances have been happening to the ten children in the Abbott family. Marie Force has managed to use some traditional tropes without being cliché. There are shades and layers to make the “trope” more realistic.  There has been insta-love, friends to lovers, and unrequited love, for example.  In particular, unrequited love has been used with Megan, Hunter, Ella and Tyler, in various degrees and interesting ways.  It’s something so relatable; […]

The purpose of Thrifty Thursday is to pick a book which was free (at some point).   Currently, it is $ 2.99 on Amazon, Nook, and Kobo.   I’ve become a big fan of Marie Force in her recent Green Mountain series  so I decided to try this series since I had the first book in the Fatal series as a freebie on my Kindle.  This is sort of romantic suspense. Sort of. Fatal Affair is a real dichotomy. I looked to see when it was published after reading since in some ways it reads like an old Harlequin romance.  Yet, in other ways, it is very contemporary.  The old feeling is perhaps since some characters feel a bit cliché, with their speech or actions […]

    As Sam and Nick prepare for the upcoming inauguration, she’s still recuperating from her physical and emotional injuries sustained from Stahl’s assault. Clearly suffering silently from the effects of PTSD, Sam wonders if she’ll ever be able to return to the job. In the meantime, her team is grappling with a tough case that appears to be a potential serial killer at large.   This was a gripping story addressing some very tough issues, including PTSD, survivors guilt and grief. Sam’s path back wasn’t easy and she’s still a work in progress. I liked how her situation was addressed even if her recovery seemed a little fast. Of course, her husband, Nick, the Vice President-Elect is always the perfect balm for anything that […]

It’s Only Love by Marie Force

Posted November 5, 2015 by Anne in Book Review | 0 Comments

I really enjoy this series with its big family, romance and small town setting.  The couple in this book have known each other most of their lives.  Ella has always loved Gavin.  He is older and has been less than available to her.   Both of them have their own stubborn views and that’s what stands in the way of their being a couple.  It would be kind of ridiculous but we all need to have our beliefs and values.  Even if they are WRONG. Really that is not my gripe, it is when they try to tell themselves how to feel.  A person can’t change how they feel, only their actions and reactions can be controlled. At one point, Ella tries to tell herself […]


Finally! One Night With You by Marie Force

Finally! One Night With You by Marie Force

    Until now, we’ve only imagined that infamous first encounter between Sam Holland and Nick Cappuano. The real story far surpassed my imagination. The younger Sam is no less brash than who we know today and Nick was just as charismatic then as he is now. Their chance meeting was set up nicely, with banter and steam worthy of these two. I loved it and am glad to have finally seen the start of their wonderful romance.   Now I understand why Sam didn’t have a chance of keeping her distance from Nick in Fatal Affair. It puts a whole new flavor on that story.
