Will he be able to take the steps to make their dreams come true?
Loved it!!! Such a sweet romantic book. Phillip and Amanda were made for each other. Perfect for each other. Maybe a little too perfect. I still loved it but I think I was hoping for a little bit of more drama with Kelsey. A Sunday afternoon or a lazy beach day must read.
In Kaira Rouda's Laguna Dreams, we see the love story of Amanda and Phillip flourish.
Amanda is the daughter of a well known actress but unfortunately is always under her mothers thumb. In order to get from under that, Amanda decides to move and find her own way. She gets a job at a winery where she wants to learn all about the business and open her own winery.
Prior to moving, she had a work incident and ended up meeting Phillip. Phillip is engaged. Nothing came about their meeting but both could not stop thinking of the electricity they shared. At her new job at the winery, she hosts wine tastings. At one tasting, she is going to host the owners son who in turn is due to evaluate her progress.
Who is that son? Phillip!!! Phillip still has a liking for Amanda and she feels the same way, except for that he is engaged. Phillip and Amanda begin to talk again and yet unknown to Amanda, Phillip has called off his engagement.
Do Phillip and Amanda become a couple? Does the engagement stay on? What happens to this so cute couple?
This story was a great read and would definitely read again. It does not dissappoint.
Dreams Do Come True
Loved, loved this story of Amanda and Phillip. An accidental meeting between the two, changes their lives forever. Not expecting to meet again, Phillip is engaged. to an evil person, bridezilla to say the least. Amanda needs a change in her life, so she takes a job at the winery. upon having a tasting she soon finds out Phillip is the son of the owners. The sparks are still there, and Amanda soon finds out their is a broken engagement. Will their dreams come true?
With the backdrop of the gorgeous Laguna Beach and winery, it will make you want to move there. I highly recommend this book, it is a part of a series but can be read as a stand alone. My only recommendation is to e sipping on a glass of wine while reading this book.
