Brazen Review: Love Finds You In North Pole, Alaska, Loree Lough
Instead of a regular blurb, I thought I'd share this neat book trailer I discovered. Enjoy!
The Love Finds You series boasts an impressive number of stories set across the United States. Loree Lough's is the only in the series I've sampled, and it was a pleasant read.
Bryce, as a hero, was far less Alpha than I prefer, a sentiment shared by the friend who recommended this novella. But overall, he was likable. Lough did a fair job at best of creating a back story to - er, well...back up her hero's reluctance for romance, but aside from disappointment, he suffered no betrayal - no shock worthy to cause a man to swear off women! It was a weakness this Broad noted in the storyline; luckily, Lough's sweet romance made up for it in other areas.
The town of North Pole was well described without going overboard. I loved being able to picture the Christmas decorations adorning each business and setting as well as the accurate description of average Alaskan homes - tiny yet cozy.
Sam, the female protagonist balanced spunk and softness, making me hope with all my heart she'd get the guy. Samantha and Bryce's romance developed slowly; be prepared for a chaste love story. If you, like me, are used to a racier sort of romance - don't worry. The characters are so lovable - especially Sam - you'll most likely enjoy this quick little story.
While I enjoyed Love Finds You In North Pole, Alaska, I probably won't seek another in the series, the main reason being I normally gravitate toward much longer, more involved reads; the second being that the Kindle formatting was awful - Summerside Press owes their author an apology.
