{ arc } review || WIN ME OVER { blog tour } by Nicole Michaels

St. Martin's Paperbacks | September 1, 2015 | Contemporary Romance
Hearts and Crafts, book 2


Callie Daniels is a singular sensation. She owns and operates her own bakery, contributes to a popular lifestyle blog, and is the dance team coach at a local high school. She lives by her own design and is much too busy to consider dating. Mr. Right will have to fit into her life when the time is right...

Football coach Bennett Clark always plays by the rules. He knows that his new colleague Callie is off limits but she's so beautiful-and irritating!-that Bennett can't get her off his mind. She wants him to participate in a charity dance contest, and won't take no for an answer. Soon, what begins as a festive athletic endeavor turns into a heated flirtation on and off the dance floor. Could it be that the free-spirited Callie has finally found a way through Coach Clark's line of defense?

I love a good contemporary and this one most definitely fit the bill!

Having never read a Nicole Michaels's book, I wasn't sure what to expect when reading, but I have to say -- she's great. She does the contemporary scene well; the build up, the excitement, the falling in love, the let down, the makeup... Everything between the front and back covers of this book were right on par.

I truly enjoyed Bennett's character. He has his flaws, yes, and they were flaws that had driven women away in the past -- but thankfully this go-'round, he pairs himself up with ex-debutante, Callie Daniels -- who wants more than just a coach and coach dance with him.

At the beginning of the book, where Callie is looking at her tiaras and thinking about her accomplishments, or rather, what her mother would consider accomplishments, I wasn't entirely sure I'd be along for the ride. I like my girls to be down-to-earth, good people and I wasn't sure that was going to be Callie. But the moment she took the dance team coaching job and rolled her eyes at her mother, I knew she'd be a lead female I could enjoy reading.

An absolutely great read for an contemporary romance fan! This can be read as a stand-alone, but I know that I, for one, am looking forward to reading the other works in this series.
