She writes around her day job as a teacher and spends her spare time with her sweet family watching reruns of Friends.

Recensioner

This is part of a series which can be read alone as each book focuses on a different couple's relationship. The other books provide context as the characters cross over into each book since they are brothers.

The conclusion of the Jansen Brothers series covers the story of the oldest brother, Wesley Jansen. He was the last brother to break away from their controlling father in Boston. The brothers have been gradually building their own empire with the help of their mother. Wes finds he isn’t the only newcomer to San Verde, CA when he meets Hailey Sharpe, who opened By the Cup salad shop.

Hailey is laser focused on making her specialized salad shop a success but finding it difficult to market her salads next to the wonderful pastry shop owned by Tara. Over time, Hailey befriends the other shop owners in the area who meet to discuss cross marketing ideas. Hailey needs all the help she can get since the only other person she knows here is her cousin Piper. You can't live in this town without meeting the Jansen brothers who are slowly rebuilding their family empire away from their controlling father's influence.

Wes finally decides to leave Boston to join his brothers Chris and Noah in CA. Wes is the oldest Jansen and took on the burden of keeping the stress of their parent's divorce from them. It also jaded his view of marriage and commitment. His focus is primarily to develop a strategic plan for the company's future. When he meets Hailey there is an attraction that is unfamiliar to both of them. They eventually find themselves together where they learn more about each other and their future goals. Ultimately, they decide that they can be just friends as neither wants a relationship the career ambitions to distract them from career ambitions.

Of course, this sort of arrangement is bound to fail. The road of their friends to lovers story is bumpy and often frustrating. Both characters have annoying personalities which creates obstacles until they learn to communicate. Wes comes from a wealthy family and has no problem with wanting to "fix" Hailey's problems with money. Hailey who was raised to work hard to succeed is offended by Wes's gestures. He doesn't "get it" and feels she is pushing him away and she doesn't "get it" that it's okay to not take on the burden alone.

It is an amusing story which leaves all three Jansen brothers finding their happily ever after.

I am embarrassed by how far behind I am with writing my reviews that I didn't realize that this book is part of a series. With being said, this story can stand alone and reading the first book does give you a preview into the characters in this book.
In book one, Chris Jansen, is transplanted to San Verde, CA from NY to improve the ratings at the radio station which his overbearing father, Nathaniel Jansen, purchased to turn into profit. This story introduces Everly Dean, SUN 96.2 radio show producer, working with her best friend, Stacey Ryan, a radio deejay at the station. They are less than pleased with the changes since the Jansen family purchased the station and work hard to convince Chris how profitable the station could be.

In this book, Grace Travis is working odd jobs to make ends meet while finishing up her courses in design. She had been assisting Morty, a 72 year-old man, in lieu of rent. He has a long time lady friend, Tilly, who often comes to visit and ensure Morty is safe. Aside from working at Coffee Stop, Grace makes money as a dog walker to pay for school to fulfill her dream of becoming an interior designer. Her unreliable mother, Tammy Travis, becomes enraged when she learns that her parents left their home on the beach to Grace and not her. Grace was surprised by this inheritance as well since Tammy never allowed her to get to know her grandparents. This allows Grace to renovate the house using her design talents with the help of best friend, Rosie and co-worker, Hugo. Meanwhile, she is annoyed by Noah Jansen, who is trying to buy the house next door. He runs into some difficulty getting approval the extreme renovations he has planned which pleases Grace who would prefer he build his house elsewhere. The ultimate request comes from Stacey who wants to hire Grace as an interior designer for Noah's house which will be featured in a magazine. What's a girl to do? Learn to love her neighbor, of course!

There are the quirky side stories which provide humor and structure to series. A fun read!
