Review: Simply Irresistible by Melody Grace

“If you like Sweet Magnolias and Virgin River, you’ll fall in love with Sweetbriar Cove!”

Escape to Cape Cod with this feel-good summer romance. Millions of readers have fallen for the bestselling series — join them today!

Jules Rivera loves a challenge. She’s saved failing businesses, and transformed scruffy guys into handsome bachelors — who turn around and leave her in the dust. Some thanks. She vows not to make the same mistakes again… until she stumbles over a gorgeous, run-down vineyard in Sweetbriar Cove. Jules knows the place could be something special. And as for the surly, rugged owner? All her instincts tell her, he’s something pretty special too…

Reeve Hastings has no intention of being anyone’s project. He’s trying to save his family legacy, and he doesn’t need help from anyone, especially not the brunette spitfire who knows nothing about wine. But Jules is annoyingly determined — and full of surprisingly good ideas — and soon, she’s making her mark on the vineyard. And driving Reeve crazy, in all the best, most tantalizing ways…

Jules knows she should keep businesses and pleasure far apart, but Reeve’s smile is more intoxicating than any bottle of Merlot. And as for his kisses… Simply irresistible. Their passion is undeniable, but with the future of the vineyard on the line, can this summer fling put down roots? Or will past heartache spoil their chance of happy-ever-after?

Find out in the new stand-alone Sweetbriar Cove love story — featuring all your favorite characters at the Beachcomber Inn!

What an absolute joy it is to back in the world of Sweetbriar Cove! Simply Irresistible is the 16th book in this beloved series, but can be read and enjoyed as a standalone novel.

When we first meet up with Jules, her entire life has been turned upside down. If losing her job, boyfriend, and apartment in the same day wasn’t bad enough, Jules gets a flat tire on the way to visit her friend in the pouring down rain. When she goes to look for help, the last thing she planned on was Reeve. Reeve too was angry at the world and wasn’t ready to deal with people, but especially not the beautiful out-of-towner, Jules…

Simply Irresistible is a quick, yet satisfying read. The characters were easy to connect with and had me loving their beautiful small town. Sweetbriar Cove is one of those towns that is built on long lasting friendships. Sure, everyone knows everyone and gossip spreads faster than wildfire, but that just adds to the charm. And when you add two hot strangers to the mix, all bets are off!

I had the best time getting to know Jules and Reeve. From the moment I met these two characters, I knew their story was going to be a good one and I wasn’t disappointed. You could feel the instant chemistry between them and despite Reeve always putting his foot in his mouth, I couldn’t help but root for the surly vineyard owner. As with any good love story, the road to happily ever after can’t be an easy one. Naturally there are obstacles our couple must overcome, and I have to tell you, I loved watching these two try to figure things out. Jules and Reeve stole my heart and I couldn’t have been more happier with the outcome.

In the end, Simply Irresistible was just that, an irresistibly good romance. The kind of romance that captivates you instantly. The kind that makes you feel as though you’re a part of the story and makes you feel right at home. The kind of story that makes you swoon and in the end leaves you with a smile on your face. Simply Irresistible is a wonderful addition to the Sweetbriar Cove series and I look forward to getting my hands on the next book in this much loved series.
