Book Review: Meet you under the stars by Traci Borum


Title: Meet you Under the Stars (Morgan's Grove #2)
Author: Traci Borum
Genre: Romance
Publication Date: December 1, 2020
Publisher: Red Adept Publishing 

Chaynie Mayfield is the absolute last person who should be heading up the Morgan’s Grove library Valentine’s event. Ever since her boyfriend dumped her last year—on Valentine’s Day—she’s had a hard time believing in love.

When Greg Peterson, handsome architect and former schoolmate, is commissioned to oversee the library’s renovations, Chaynie’s spirits are instantly lifted. Greg helps her brainstorm, and they create an “Under the Stars” theme that promises to deliver a magical night for the entire town.

The longer Chaynie and Greg work together on the romantic project, the deeper their attraction grows. But when her dream job comes calling, Chaynie must decide whether her future aspirations are worth the price of leaving a town, a family, a library she adores, and a love she’s not sure she can live without.



 *A Thank you to the author for allowing me to read this. This is my honest and unbiased review*

Hello Fellow Readers,

I am so glad to be back in Morgan's Grove, I absolutely loved Borum's first book Love Starts Here so when I saw there was a second book in the series I was so excited. Like the last book this was so much more than a romance, this is a book about family, friendships, and finding oneself. In Meet you Under the Stars we meet Chaynie an assistant librarian, who dreams of becoming a head librarian at a university. However, when she finally gets the chance to chase her ambitions, she starts second guessing whether she wants to take that chance.
I adored Chaynie, she was so great and I never once felt that her actions were out of character or unrealistic. I also really loved Greg (almost as much as I adore Rick), he was such a strong and patient man that I completely understand why Chaynie fell for him. I do love that the romance was a slow burn, and not an instant love situation, it really helped set up the mood and made the ending that much better.

I not only loved Greg and Chaynie, but Chaynie's mother and Savannah. I appreciated how Borum gave them small side stories so they were not just there to influence Chaynie's descisions but they felt like real fleshed out characters. Okay, so I love pretty much everyone they included in the Morgan's Grove books, it makes me want to hop on a plane and go live a small town life. 

Overall, a slow burn romance that will make you feel good.
