✱✱Book Review✱✱ Blog Blitz: BOLD LOVE by Lauren Accardo


Playing house in the mountains was supposed to be temporary, but a woman would have to be made of stone to resist the most eligible bachelor in Pine Ridge and all his small-town charm.…

Denny Torres needs a break. After a series of embarrassments on and off the field, the Adirondacks provide the perfect hideout for his new, quiet, post-football life. The fresh mountain air is a welcome balm for his soul, but what’s even more soothing? The sexy, sweet touch of fellow Pine Ridge newcomer Bethany Jones. If only she planned to stay....
Bee does not have time for a hunky former athlete—no matter how good he looks shirtless or how sweet he is with his parents. Her artistic ambitions are in ruins, her brother is a disaster, and while Pine Ridge has its charms, the small town is nothing more than a pit stop on her way to getting back on track. Bee’s just going to ignore the fact that when Denny offers her the chance to channel her creative energy into redesigning his house, she finds herself building the home—and the life—of her dreams.
With their time together coming to an end, Denny will have to move quickly to prove he can be the man Bee needs. Who better than a defensive back to knock down those walls?

Momma Says: 4 stars⭐⭐⭐⭐

I've come late to Lauren Accardo's Forever Adirondacks series, but it didn't take long for the little town of Pine Ridge to pull me in. This is the third book in the series, but it's safe to say it works well as a standalone. I didn't feel like I was missing any vital information. That said, now that I've met these characters, I really want more of them.
Bee and Denny get a forced proximity romance that is engaging and emotional. They each have baggage to work through, and of course, they don't want a relationship. And what happens when they don't want a relationship? It's gonna creep right in there! I really enjoyed these characters and their romance. They're easy to root for, and they feel like people I could know, which makes the story so easy to fall into and before I knew it, I was hooked and invested. To sum it up, if you're up for a forced proximity romance, this is one to check out.
