Loving him was hard. Wanting him was so damn easy . . .

Sofia Mercer may have been sick as a teen, but she’s no delicate flower. And she’s proven it by making it on her own and starting a new life away from the town that turned against her, away from the boy who broke her already fragile heart. But when her aunt Luz dies unexpectedly, leaving Sofia with a mountain of regrets and the keys to a quirky boutique, Sofia has no choice but to return to Cape Cod. Only, this new life in her old town comes with complications.

Burke Wolf was Sofia’s first love—a relationship that burned bright and went up in flames. Seeing 
him again, Sofia can’t help but get caught up in that all-too-familiar tornado of passion and pain. He’s battled his own demons—that much is clear. But Sofia can’t afford to be careless with her heart . . . and loving Burke again might just break it completely.

Yours to Take #2 (not released yet!)


Lisa Marie Perry is a new author to me and Meant to Be Mine is the first book in what looks like an amazing series that is to come. Sofia is back in the small town she grew up in only to attend her Aunts funeral and after that she has every plan to go back home. There is just one little problem, her Aunt has left her everything. On top of having her Aunts possessions that she has to figure out what to do with she runs into her old friend Burke, and how they left things before Sofia left is all about to come out on top of all the feelings they have been holding back.

The writing was clear, fun and I really enjoyed this story. The plot was different and kept me wanting to know what else was going to happy and how Sofia would repair her friendship with Burke. This story was a little on the emotional side but not the type of story to bring you to tears. It was more of a sexy fun story that was filled with a few twists and turns along the way.

I also enjoyed the characters until the very end. Perry wrote them with such passion that even when they were arguing you could feel the spark between them. It was only a matter of time before they ended up together and believe me I was counting down the minutes. I loved how Burke would worry about Sofia after everything she had been through. He really stepped it up by not only being her friend but by showing her how much he did in fact love her now and then.

The secondary characters also did some standing out in Meant to Be Mine. We meet whole community that comes together to help one of their own. At first I didn’t understand why Sofia had never came back but once she started to open up I could see and understand her reasoning. Now that she is back it’s like she never left. Not only is she reconnected with new friends but also making new ones.

Is this a series I will keep up with? Yes, and already I am impatiently waiting for book to arrive on shelves. Perry brought this story to life and breathed in fresh air in the contemporary romance world. Are you looking for a story that is sexy and fun? Pick up Meant to Be Mine and get to know Burke and Sofia from the beginning.
