Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!
Series: The McClendon Holiday #4
Title: Be My Valentine
Author: Sean D. Young
Publisher: Entangled Bliss, Entangled Publishing

This story has the sweet smell of success throughout it! Sorry, that’s something of a pun on the storyline in which Patrice McClendon sets out to create a signature scent to celebrate Valentine’s Day. She travels to a business fair, where she meets Jacques Germain. He’s a highly successful perfumer who has recently resigned from his leading role in a renowned perfume manufacturer after being wrongly accused of stealing. The attraction between the two is instant but Patrice is wary and he’s still reeling from the accusations. Can they work together to create a beautiful aroma as well as romance as Valentine’s Day approaches?
This is a lovely romance which features many of the McClendon clan who have been included in earlier stories in this series. However, each story is written to be a standalone, so you don’t need to have read any of them to still enjoy this one. The characters and plot are well developed, taking the reader into the angst and turmoil which surrounds this romance. There will be troubles along the way before everything will be coming up roses for this couple!
I requested and received a copy of this novel, via NetGalley. This is my honest review after choosing to read it.
Patrice McClendon wants to create a signature scent for her family’s aromatherapy and day spa this Valentine’s Day. The holiday is crucial for the family business, even if Patrice has never been a hearts and flowers kind of girl. But creating the fragrance isn’t easy, and Patrice needs help. She gets that and more when she meets successful perfumer Jacques Germain.
There are instant sparks when Jacques meets Patrice, but she’s asked him for professional help, and mixing business with pleasure is a no-no. But they soon realize that none of the rules apply when love is involved, and Jacques is determined to show Patrice that Valentine’s Day can bring gifts more precious than anything money can buy.
Each book in the McClendon Holiday series is STANDALONE.
I have read this one and two others so far:
