EEEEE! I’m so excited about this one!
Most Likely To Series, Book One
Montlake Romance, Contemporary
April 19, 2016, First Edition
Paperback & Kindle
One small town. Three close friends. True love to last a lifetime.
Voted Most Likely to Succeed, Melanie Bartlett ended up anything but. The down-on-her-luck single mom wants a complete do-over—is that too much to ask? With her family long gone from River Bend, strong, independent Mel is as surprised as anyone to end up in the quaint small town she once called home. But with her friends, Jo and Zoe, by her side, and a comfortable room at Miss Gina’s quirky bed-and-breakfast, she just might have turned the corner on a new life.
Wyatt Gibson never liked the big city. River Bend suits the ruggedly handsome builder just fine. Wyatt knows he’s home, even if that means being charmed by the appearance of Melanie and her spunky, adorable daughter. Is Wyatt’s calm devotion—even amid a coming storm—enough to convince Mel she may have found a home to call her own, a family that never leaves, and a true love to last a lifetime?
Praise for Doing It Over
“The romance between fiercely independent Melanie and charming Wyatt heats up even as outsiders threaten to derail their newfound happiness. This novel will hook readers with its warm, inviting characters and the promise for similar future installments.” –Publishers Weekly
“This brand-new trilogy, Most Likely To, based on yearbook superlatives, kicks off with a novel that will encourage you to root for the incredibly likable Melanie. Her friends are hilarious and readers will swoon over Wyatt, who is charming and strong. Even Melanie’s daughter, Hope, is a hoot! This romance is jam-packed with animated characters, and Bybee displays her creative writing talent wonderfully.” –RT Book Reviews, 4 Stars
Bybee’s The Weekday Brides series is one of my favorites and I was so excited when I found out she was starting a new one … and I’m ever more thrilled to find out she still has the magic touch!
Like The Weekday Brides, readers will get a fun & charming romance between the hero & heroine – tender moments, funny dialogue, and characters (both main & secondary) that you’ll fall for. And while there’s just the right amount of trouble, none of it is overly dramatic, couply issues. There was one moment where I was a little scared but I should have realized that Bybee wouldn’t do that to her readers. Instead she lets the romance develop naturally between Wyatt and Melanie, leaving any problems to be brought by outside forces.
We’re also given a little bit about Melanie’s friends, kinda like a preview for the next books, but not enough for it to overwhelm the main story. Outside of the main three friends the series is based on, we’re also given some entertaining side characters – Melanie’s spunky daughter, outrageous Ms Gina, Zoe’s sexy ex Luke, and Wyatt’s oh-so-awesome dad. Every time I turned the page I was so anxious to see what Bybee would bring next and I am SOOO looking forward to the rest of the series.
