Bless Your Heart by Lyra Parrish - ARC Review & Release Blitz



   What you can expect: enemies to lovers best friend's older brother (3-year age gap) rom-com vibes Texas small-town romance-family saga secret pinning sassy, plant killing heroine dirty-talkin' hero guaranteed happily ever after spicy AF scenes complete stand alone the first book in a feel-good series.


I enjoy an enemies to lovers when I believe the reason they are enemies and can understand how they get past it.

In this one, Beckett and Summer have a history and disliking one another is sort of their habit...and a way of ignoring how they feel about one another. Their feud, if you can call it that, escalates when they both want to purchase the same property, and this is also how they find the common ground to talk and finally realize that both are in love with one another and have been for years...which their entire families have known all along.

The chemistry between them was believable, but it also felt like it was just sort of there, and as the reader is coming to the story from the middle without their history on the page, it did feel a little insta-love, which worked for them, but not really for the idea that they are enemies to lovers with a history.

While I am not sure the balance of the romance and the enemies to lovers worked totally, I did still enjoy this title overall and I recommend this title.

Summer Jones only wants three things in life: 
1. Keep her house plants alive. 
2. Open a beautiful bed-and-breakfast. 
3. Never see or speak to Beckett Valentine again. 
None of those things are currently possible. 

Summer Jones and Beckett Valentine are rivals and have never wanted the same things in life except for the newly for sale Horseshoe Creek Ranch. 

Summer thought her dreams of building a B&B would finally come true until her number one enemy decides he wants the land, too. 

Beckett plays dirty and refuses to give her what she wants—a common theme in their relationship—and the dream of acquiring the property turns into a living nightmare. 

They might’ve been at each other’s throats since they were teens, but the stakes have never been so high. 

And right now, she's more determined than ever to take down her best friend’s older brother—cowboy boots and all. 

**Bless Your Heart is a small town, enemies to lovers, best friend’s older brother, contemporary southern romance with a guaranteed happily ever after. Each book in the Valentine Texas series is a stand-alone. Warning: this book contains tons of Southern sass, sarcasm, and lots of spice! Fade to black is not included.**
