Heartwarming, fun #Romance: Forever Starts Now by Stefanie London

What happens when two people who’ve given up on forever find it in each other…?

Single men are as scarce in Forever Falls as a vegetarian at a barbecue. That is, until Ethan Hammersmith moves in. After his fiancée gave him an ultimatum, he left Australia and never looked back. He isn’t in America to find a new girlfriend, though. He’s searching for the father he never knew. But now it’s like he has a flashing sign above his head that says “available.” Thankfully, the manager of the local diner is willing to give him cover—if only she weren’t so distractingly adorable.

Monroe Roberts, town misanthrope and divorcée, knocked “forever” permanently off her wish list ever since the love of her life skipped town with the cliché yoga instructor. And good riddance. She’s got this struggling diner to keep her busy, trying anything to boost sales…until a hot Australian strolls in and changes everything. Monroe’s restaurant is packed full of women who aren’t there to order food, unless Ethan is on the menu. This could sink her business faster than ever. So—light bulb—what if they pretend to be together?

It sounded like the perfect plan. It hilariously was not…

My Review:

This was just what I needed – a lovely, light-hearted and funny romance with a dash of mystery and lots of love.

Monroe Roberts is the manager of the diner but is struggling to keep it making enough money to be viable. She’s been burnt in love, after finding her ex-husband was having an affair with her cousin, making her reticent to trust any man. However, when a visiting Australian Ethan Hammersmith eats at the diner, he’s followed by women who seem to think he should be on the menu. The two decide to work together by having a fake relationship enabling him to search for information about his father who he only learnt about from his dying mother and boosting sales in the diner in the process. The only problem with fake relationships is when they start to feel read . . . .

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this romance! It has great characters, family drama, secrets to be uncovered and, of course, romance. Uncovering the past also gives these two the opportunity to look forward to a different future but they’ll both have to put aside their fears if they are to take a chance on love together.

Thank you to Entangled Publishing and NetGalley for my copy of this book which I have voluntarily read and honestly reviewed.
