5 of 5 Love, Life, & Lemons
Life, Love, and Lemons is one of those cute clean stories that is a breathe of fresh air. Sometimes you just need a cute story that deviates from your normal read and this was what this book was for me. I love my NA and adult and erotica but sometimes I just need to read a clean book that puts a smile on my face and this is what I had grinning and laughing at some of the things that happened in this story to our main characters.
Bentley had me on the floor laughing because she was just so out of her league.Bentley lives the life of a rich girl who has everything and wants for nothing. Her father has a great job and she has great friends and goes to a private school. All the things she wants and needs until one day her father loses his job and they are forced to move across town to the middle class and lower class as she sees it. At first she is devastated but she soon finds out that her family needs her to step up to the plate and help out and that is exactly what she does. She gets a job and contributes to the house.
The only thing that Bentley does not like is the school. She is not used to metal detectors and all sorts of different people and styles because in private school you pretty much get the same thing. Then she meets Malakai Stone who is just an adorable punk rocker who has a heart of gold but he and Bentley do not get along at first then they start to get along. I have to say that sometimes I like an insta love but this one was a little weird for me but hey to each his own and who am I to say love can't happen in a flash.
If you want a quick sweet story that is clean from sex and swearing this is the book for you!
