Be My Love by J.C. McKenzie

When this book ended I think I actually sighed. Not because I was happy it was over! No, it was just so darn sweet I couldn’t help it.

What’s it About? 


Broken-hearted and bitter, Brenna Jones plans to spend Valentine’s weekend at her parents’ cabin, reading romance novels and devouring heart-shaped candy. When her truck hits a snowdrift and plows into a bank—during a storm, no less—her plans take a drastic detour. Eric Buchanan, the playboy jerk from her past, comes to her aid. He’s her only option for reaching safety.

Eric can’t wait to escape his parents’ latest attempt to set him up. He’s given up on happiness, knowing he blew his chance at love a decade ago. When his snowmobile ride turns into a harrying escape from a blizzard, he discovers Brenna stranded in the storm. After he ensures her safety, he plans to explain the misunderstanding that tore them apart. Can a secluded cabin help Eric convince Brenna to be his love?

First Impressions

I think most of us can agree that Brenna’s initial Valentine’s Day plans sounded pretty freakin’ awesome. I mean, she gets to find some peace and quiet at her parent’s cabin while reading romance novels, eating candy hearts, and spending some quality alone time with her vibrator. Gotta love it. But then she crashes her car, and is rescued by her former crush. Neither has completely gotten over the other, and they are now stuck in a cabin with no electricity, a fire blazing, hot cocoa and a winter storm blowing outside. Can I switch places with Brenna? Pleeeeease!!!

Sweeter than Candy

This book is sexy as hell while Brenna and Eric fulfill a large number of their repressed sexual fantasies. You also just know these two are meant to be together. Their minds are completely in sync! Example: when Brenna spills hot cocoa on him, Eric’s first reaction is to ask her to lick it off, and her first thought is to lick it off without asking. See what I mean? In sync! Brenna definitely listens to the devil on her shoulder throughout the novella, and I really can’t blame her considering Eric has one of those sexy V-shaped pathways, if you know what I mean. In addition to all the sensual sex scenes going on between these two, there are also a bunch of funny moments between them as well, and the end is sweeter than candy!


*A copy of this book was provided for an honest review*

Series: A Candy Hearts Romance. I have read quite a few of the novellas in this series, and I am seriously craving those heart-shaped candies now! Must go and purchase some.

Should you read it? Absolutely! This is a great Valentine’s Day read, and one that you can finish in one sitting. It’s sweet, sexy, funny, and will give you and your significant other some unique ideas when it comes to using those candy hearts in the bedroom.

Smut Level: My favorite line of the novel is one said by Brenna: “I want to ride you until you scream my name.” You go girl!
