✱✱Book Review✱✱ Meant For Me by Claudia Burgoa


USA Today bestselling author Claudia Burgoa brings an enemies-to-lovers romance where the billionaire grump can’t help but fall for Ms. Sunshine.

I never thought I’d be the proud owner of a quaint small-town bookstore, but life has a funny way of surprising us.

With my virtual BFF’s encouragement to seize the day and follow my heart.

I say goodbye to my corporate job and say hello to my new adventure.

Until I meet the town’s grumpy billionaire, Huxley Spearman.

He’s every woman’s dream.

Tall, devastatingly handsome…

But annoyingly arrogant.

And if making a new enemy isn’t enough, there’s more:

  1. My long-lost Mother might be alive.
  2. This bookstore is the money pit.
  3. My checking account is in shambles.
  4. My online friend wants to be more than my virtual crush.
  5. And, somehow, I‘m falling for two different men.

Can love truly grow from a virtual connection? Or will a rough-around-the-edges man steal my heart?

This is a heartwarming tale of love, second chances, and a twist of the unexpected. In this spiritual successor to “You Got Mail” and “Pillow Talk.”

Momma Says: 5 stars⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Meant for Me came at just the right time for me with its wit and humor. Of course, there's plenty of emotion too, but if you're familiar with Claudia Burgoa, you already know how well she does what she does. This one takes us back to Paradise Bay for Huxley and Enid, and I absolutely love this pair. The blurb sums it up pretty well with the word heartwarming. I don't want to get too far into the whys and hows, but this one definitely warms the heart. Huxley and Enid have an almost enemies-to-lovers romance, at least in the beginning, but they don't stay enemies for long. He does drive Enid to distraction, which makes for some fun and sometimes sexy scenes. We also get to visit with some of the Spearman family, which is always nice. This is one of my favorite book families, so I always enjoy catching up with them.
What it all comes down to is Meant for Me is a thoroughly charming romance with Claudia Burgoa's talent for well-timed wit mixed with feels. In the case of this one, if you enjoyed "You've Got Mail," I'd recommend giving Huxley and Enid's romance a shot. Honestly, I'd recommend it with or without the reference to a fun and entertaining RomCom. 

Narrated by: Stephanie Németh-Parker & Chris Brinkley

Momma Says: 5 stars⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

And how do you make an already excellent story even better? Put it in the ever-capable hands of Stephanie Németh-Parker and Chris Brinkley for the narration. I was already familiar with both narrators, so I knew I'd enjoy the listen, which I certainly did. From the humor to the emotion of the story, Stephanie Németh-Parker and Chris Brinkley capture all of it. I'd already read the book, so I knew what was going to happen, yet these two made it feel fresh and new. A stellar listen of an equally stellar story.
