Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!
Series: Kendrick Place #3
Titles: Hate to Love Him by Jody Holford
Author: Jody Holford
Publisher: Entangled Bliss, Entangled Publishing

This was a delightful, restful, easy read with well developed characters and an engaging plot. It continues the saga of Kendrick Place and many of the characters met in the earlier books are also in this one. Having typed that, I also have to say that I think this book will also work as a standalone as the author fills in the background information as the story progresses.
In this case, Mia is fed up of being looked down on by the men in her family. Her father and brother have no respect for her business skills and she’s out to prove them wrong. She has six months to make Kendrick Place, the apartment building which started the family business, back into a viable concern and she’s determined to succeed. Her Grandmother is the only family member who believes in Mia and their relationship is a close one. However, Brady Davis, one of the residents of Kendrick Place, is worried that Mia is going to ruin the close knit community of residents with big business ideas. He doesn’t trust her but he’s certainly attracted to her. As sparks fly between them, there are surprises in store, secrets to be revealed and double dealing to be thwarted before love can find a way for this couple!
I found this an engaging read, easy to escape into and enjoy. I certainly didn’t like the male family members and loved them getting their comeuppance – but I’m not telling you how. you’ll need to read it for yourself to find out what happens! If you enjoy contemporary romance, you’ll probably enjoy this one, too!
I requested and was given a copy of this book via NetGalley and this is my honest opinion after choosing to read it.
Brady Davis is as happy as he is charming. Usually. Unless he’s in the same room with the frustratingly gorgeous antidote to his cheer. Mia Kendrick is headstrong and determined. She’s done with men who stand in her way—even if he has arms like Thor and a smile that makes her dizzy. Whenever they’re together, sparks fly—both the bad and good kind.
When Mia returns home to take over management of Kendrick Place, Brady is worried her focus on big business could be the end of his tight-knit home and the family he’s created there. Mia may have the power to change everything, but Brady could have the power to change her mind…if he can get inside her heart.
