A single mom fighting for what’s right to make a new home for her kids
Enemies-to-lovers romance by way of the Homeowners Association
Building a community of friends and neighbors
What makes a house a home is the people inside, not the decor outside

When divorced mom of two Amelia Marsh relocates to a northern suburb of Houston, all she wants is a bit of normalcy for her children. The last thing she needs is to be the center of community gossip. But when a disagreement between Amelia and the HOA representative over whether or not her children’s garden gnome violates the association’s rules, Amelia doesn’t back down. HOA President Kyle Sanders would begin to be a good friend-and something more-if Amelia wasn’t gearing up for battle with the HOA in her determination to make her house a home and her neighborhood a community…

A newly divorced Mom of two, Amelia Marsh moves into a suburb of Houston. So when she and her children set up a gnome themed garden, one of the representatives of HOA clashed with Amelia demanding her to remove the gnomes and Amelia tried to fight back. Then Amelia meets the handsome Kyle who is the president of the HOA and soon they become from enemies, to friends to eventually lovers…

This to me was an OK–not too boring but nonethless enjoyable to read. There were some parts that were interesting and I like reading how the friendship between Kyle and Amelia grew throughout this book. I do like how Kyle acted more like a father figure to Amelia’s children than their own father who literally ignored them and wanted nothing to do with them. Overall, even though I knew what the whole story was going to be like, I actually enjoyed reading this book and looking forward to read more books from this author.

If you are looking for a funny contemporary fiction like this one, then this book is the one for you–worth four stars.

Many thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for the ARC. The review is based on my honest opinion only.
