BLOG TOUR REVIEW ~If You Were Mine by Melanie Harlow~

Title: If You Were Mine
Author: Melanie Harlow
Release Date: February 28, 2017

My Rating: 5 STARS
Theo MacLeod wasn’t supposed to be the one.

Tall, dark and handsome suits me just fine, but the cocky grin, know-it-all attitude, and mammoth ego? No thanks. I only hired him so I wouldn’t have to sit at the singles table again. It was just pretend.

He wasn’t supposed to kiss me.

My heart wasn’t supposed to pound.

We weren’t supposed to spend the night together—the hottest night of my life.

One night turns into a snowed-in weekend away, and even the blizzard of the century can’t cool the fire between us. I can’t get enough—of his smile, of his body, of the way he makes me feel.

We’re nothing alike. He’s a daredevil, and I’m a nervous Nellie. He’s a drifter, and I want to put down roots. He’s an opportunist with a checkered past, and I’m a Girl Scout volunteer.

But none of it matters when I’m in his arms.

I know he’s made mistakes. I know his wounds are deep, and he doesn’t trust easily. I know he doesn’t believe he could ever be enough to make me happy, but he could.

All he has to do is stay.
Ok Melanie Harlow, just take my heart already. You've effectively ruined me for all good books from here on out anyways. If You Were Mine is a true winner. Theo is sexy as sin and my heart just went out for him from the beginning. He was a strong, sexy man who just needed a little help. Which came courtesy of the sweet and wily Claire. Theo and Claire were both a little lost when the book began, but when they found each other they got a little lighter, saw things a little brighter. It was really amazing to see the change in both of them throughout the book. It wasn't always fun, and sometimes my heart was twisted a little too much, but it was worth it in the end.

Melanie Harlow has built a world of sweetness, super sexiness, and an empowering storyline. Theo and Claire will melt your heart and leave you both satisfied and needing so much more. If You Were Mine is an enticingly seductive standalone that you should go devour ASAP!

Happy Reading!

Melanie Harlow likes her martinis dry, her heels high, and her history with the naughty bits left in. When she's not writing or reading, she gets her kicks from TV series like VEEP, Game of Thrones, House of Cards, and Homeland. She occasionally runs three miles, but only so she can have more gin and steak.

Melanie is the author of the HAPPY CRAZY LOVE series, the FRENCHED series, and the sexy historical SPEAK EASY duet, set in the 1920s. She lifts her glass to romance readers and writers from her home near Detroit, MI, where she lives with her husband, two daughters, and pet rabbit.
