Review: Always Be Mine (Sweetbriar Cove #9) by Melody Grace

Posted on

Watch love bloom in the new Sweetbriar Cove romance from New York Times bestselling author, Melody Grace!

Actress Lila Moore is starting over. Escaping Hollywood scandal, she’s hiding out in Sweetbriar Cove to plan the next chapter in her life. The last thing she wants is an annoyingly handsome man snooping in her business, even if It turns out that he’s not the paparazzi… but her new gardener.

Landscape designer Griffin Hart doesn’t care about gossip, and he definitely doesn’t have time for a high-strung client like Lila. He prefers getting dirty planting spring bulbs, not walking the red carpet at a fancy premiere. As far as he’s concerned, their relationship is strictly business. But it turns out, Lila isn’t anything like the diva he expected. And when sparks fly, he can’t stay away…

Soon, the gardens aren’t the only thing blossoming at Rose Cottage. But can Lila trust enough to open her heart again? And when the past catches up with them, will this unlikely couple find a way to keep love in season all year long?

“Griffin was out of excuses–and in deep. “

“She’d never known a man like this before. Brave, strong and true.”

Melody Grace has done it again. With her signature swoon and small town romance, Always Be Mine is sure to make you fall head over heels and have you dreaming of summer.

Always Be Mine is the 9th book in the Sweetbriar Cove Series and just like the others before it, Always Be Mine is sure to capture you heart and sweep you off of your feet. One of my favorite things about this series is how all the stories flawlessly intertwine. Each book gives you a feeling of home and catching up with your friends. That being said, if Always Be Mine is your first book by this author, never fear, you can totally read this book as a stand-alone novel.

Always Be Mine is beautifully written and is a story of starting over and learning to move on from your past. It’s about accepting change and learning how to roll with the obstacles life throws at you. It is a story of friendship and love that is sure to light up your face and give you all the swoons. Lila and Griffin stole my heart from the moment their characters were introduced. I had a feeling they would give my heart a run for its money and let me tell you, those two do not disappoint. Their journey to happily ever after was a fun and entertaining one. And it wouldn’t be a good romance without a little drama and some surprises along the way.

Overall, I really enjoyed this story. The writing swept me away and left me longing for summer. The characters were wonderful and easy to connect with. I am a sucker for small town romances and the Sweetbriar Cove Series never disappoints. Once again, author Melody Grace has delivered a swoon worthy romance with just a dash of drama to keep you on your toes. Lila and Griffin’s story is the kind of romance that just warms your heart and leaves you begging for more. Their story was impossible to put down and I loved every single moment of it.

Always Be Mine is a terrific read from beginning to end and is a great addition to the Sweetbriar Cove Series. I loved getting swept up in these characters and falling in love with their story.
