CALL HER MINE
Series: Harmony Pointe, Book 1
Publisher: Montlake Romance
Release Date: August 13th 2019
Two besties and a baby make for an instafamily and a surprising romance in a delightful series by Melissa Foster, the New York Times bestselling author of the Sugar Lake novels.
Ben Dalton has always been honest, except where his heart is concerned. He’s been in love with his best friend—saucy, smart-mouthed Aurelia Stark—forever. But Ben’s a planner, and timing has never been on his side. When he finally decides to make his move, Aurelia beats him to the punch with a move of her own—to a different town.
Aurelia loves her new life in the charming town of Harmony Pointe. She has a great apartment and her very own bookstore, and best of all, the sinfully hot, commitment-phobic friend she’s crushed on for years is no longer just around the corner. Maybe she’ll finally be able to leave her unrequited love behind and move on.
But when a baby is left on Ben’s front porch—a baby that is presumably his—Aurelia is there for him. Neither one knows the first thing about babies, but how hard can it be? Ben and Aurelia are catapulted into a world of love, laughter, and tracking down the baby mama, and it might even add up to a very happily ever after… just not one either of them expects.
3 Pinkies Up…aka 3 stars!
Call Her Mine by Melissa Foster is a best friends to lovers romance with a surprise baby on the doorstep thrown into the mix.
Ben and Aurelia have been best friends their whole lives while both being too dumb to admit they were in love with each other. But surprise! A baby left on Ben’s doorstep changes their entire dynamic as they navigate what life looks like with baby Bea and with each other.
I thought this book was just ok. I don’t feel like we got nearly enough character development before we went from zero to mayday. The whole beginning of the book felt really abrupt to me. And, despite how much Ben and Aurelia repeatedly tell us how much they love the other, I felt like their chemistry was kind of cheesy. I never felt that connection that I crave from a couple that I’m totally routing for.
I also feel like there were sooooooo many characters in this book that I needed to create a flow chart to keep up with who is who. The supporting characters were great, but they were so much to keep up with. At times, I found myself liking the supporting cast more than the main characters, and I wanted to keep reading more of their interactions.
The story was cute. There were definitely moments that made me laugh out loud and other moments that made me cry like baby Bea. So, props to any book that can pull at the heartstrings. But for a love story 20 years in the making, it actually felt REALLY rushed. This book is an easy, light, fluffy read if that’s what you’re looking for.
