Such a sweet romance.

Piper Chandler is a jewelry designer and co-owner of a senior concierge service.  She has been broken-hearted by her first love famous tennis champion Roman Spenser.  So imagine her surprise when out of the blue Roman sends her a text telling her he needs to speak with her.  All kinds of crazy hurt pain and fear come back with that text.  What could he want?

Roman is worried about his mother Sadie and wants to hire Piper to look in on her and report back to him.  When he meets up with her to discuss the arrangements he is struck with her beauty.  She takes his breath away and he makes a new goal to make her his again,

Piper agrees on checking in with Sadie, since they had always been close.  When she finds that Sadie is perfectly fine, she discovers that someone is out to make her look like she is not.  Piper makes it her goal to prove Sadie is fine  to Roman.  Roman has other plans for Piper, but he is worried her anger at him leaving her years ago will get in the way.  Will Piper find the culprit and then allow herself to forgive Roman?

I loved the characters in the story.  Roman is a cocky sexy man.  Piper is sweet and caring.  Sadie is a freaking nut.  I loved her!  She is so snarky, sneaky and funny.  These characters truly made this story come alive.

The book is a steady paced read, with a little mystery to it.  It has a bit of everything from humor to hurt.  It has lost love with fate to return.   It also has backstabbing deceit.  It is a very entertaining read.  I really enjoyed the writing style and found this to be a cozy romance with a little bit of dirty to it.  It is not a smut read.  This book is a curl up on the couch with a glass of wine kind of read.  A true feel good romance.
