ARC for Review 

Things Paige Morrison will never understand about Mirabelle, Florida:
Why wearing red shoes makes a girl a harlot
Why a shop would ever sell something called "buck urine"
Why everywhere she goes, she runs into sexy-and infuriating-Brendan King After losing her job, her apartment, and her boyfriend, Paige has no choice but to leave Philadelphia and move in with her retired parents. For an artsy outsider like Paige, finding her place in the tightly knit town isn't easy-until she meets Brendan, the hot mechanic who's interested in much more than Paige's car. In no time at all, Brendan helps Paige find a new job, new friends, and a happiness she wasn't sure she'd ever feel again. With Brendan by her side, Paige finally feels like she can call Mirabelle home. But when a new bombshell drops, will the couple survive, or will their love come undone?


Oh My Gosh I just absolutely adored Undone!! This is a perfect book for a light fun and sexy read about love finding you when its time. Paige goes through some pretty tough times and needs a little help getting back on her feet so she moves in with her parents. Unfortunately they have retired in Mirabelle Florida suddenly Paige’s life is topsy turvy and she is frustrated beyond measure. In walks in Brendan and the sparks fly from there. I loved this story definitely fluffy but it had its very touching moments. Ms Richard introduces these characters in such a way that you will feel their happiness and their pain. This book had me smiling like a lunatic and balling like a baby! 

U-naware, things between Paige and Dylan have always been strained but she never knew he cared so little for her. 
N-owhere, Paige has never fit in, surrounded by this small town it feels like she is suffocating. All she has ever wanted was to fit in and to feel at home. 
D-reams, Paige was not happy at her previous job she wants to share her art with the world but she is terrified she might not be good enough. 
O-pportunity, Brendan knows that he has never felt this way before. He will do what it takes to protect Paige she is quickly becoming his heart. 

N-otorious, for her slimy articles a bitter woman with a bitter heart enjoys causing misery all around her. 
E-verything, has happened so fast but not soon enough. Paige and Brendan are two souls that complete each other in every way. 

OMG Three cheers for Ms. Richardson bravo the writing was fun and witty. This one really turned up the feelers for me. I fell in love with the entire cast. Watching their families dynamics was so fun! I’m looking forward to spring and summer sans the ocean but we at least have a pretty awesome fair. This was a great romance that maintained roots…am I making sense? There wasn’t anything overly shocking though it did contain very sad moments and many heartfelt moments as well. I’m looking forward to what lies ahead for this small town! So yea I recommend it. 


He was magnificent. He knew what Paige was going through regarding the town and how hard it could be to live there. He wanted to help her so she could have a fair chance. He didn’t have the easiest of times growing up but he had firmed his roots and the love he has for his family is undeniable. I enjoyed watching the way he wasn’t afraid to love Paige she became his whole heart and the love they shared was something that resonated through the pages. 

Smarty mouth and sassy! Everyone labeled her as something she knew she was not but was over the pretenses. Let them think what they want to think! She has an amazing talent and everyone seemed to see it except her, through the perfect amount of motivation I was glad to see what she did with her art. I loved that even though the town treated her poorly she was still able to open up those that accepted her. Even though her dearest friend lived very far from her they maintained an awesome friendship and lines of communication! 


4.0 Cracked Radiator, Pee Bottle, Black Wedges, Funeral Home, Red Carpet, Oak Tree, Loyal Dog, Awful Blogger, Town Scandal, Spoon Ring, Sunflower Petals, DIY, Forgiving, Eternal Love filled stars! This is a perfect fun loving HEA! First in a series and I can’t wait to see what happens from here!

Purchase Through

Paige was wrapped in just a towel as she searched for something to wear. She had exactly twenty minutes before Brendan was supposed to pick her up. There was a knock on her door as her hands closed over a pair of jeans. 
“Come in,” she called over her shoulder. 
The door opened and Paige turned, throwing her jeans onto her bed. 
“What time is he picking you up?” Denise asked as she stuck her head inside the doorway. 
Paige had a sudden flashback to high school when her mother would help her get ready before a date. She immediately thought of Brendan and Grace and how their mother had died when they were both so young. They’d missed out on so much, especially Grace. Paige couldn’t imagine not having all of those years with her mother and she felt intensely grateful for every single one of them. 
“At seven. You busy?” 
“No,” Denise said, shaking her head. 
“Will you sit and talk with me while I get ready?” Paige asked. 
“Yeah,” Denise said, her mouth breaking into a smile. She opened the door farther and walked into the room, a glass of wine in hand. She shut the door behind her and sat down on the edge of Paige’s bed, just like old times. “What are you going to wear?” she asked, grabbing a pillow and playing with the frilly lace edging. 
“Jeans,” Paige said, pointing to the pair on her bed. “I haven’t decided on a shirt though,” she said and turned back to her closet. 
“My black wedges.” She knew they drove Brendan crazy, and that’s exactly what she planned to do tonight. She didn’t feel guilty about it at all either; he obviously had no problem doing it to her. Turnabout was just fair. 
“What about your red peasant top. The one that hangs off your shoulders and hugs your waist.” 
Paige grabbed the shirt and turned around, holding it up to show her mom. 
“Red on a first date?” 
“You look good in red,” Denise said. 
“You don’t think it’s too much?” 
Her mother gave the blouse a critical eye. “Just wear ugly underwear. If you wear stuff that you don’t want him to see, you’ll be less likely to sleep with him.” 
“Mom!” Paige said shocked. “I’m not going to sleep with him on the first date.” 
“I know. Just wear something to keep you grounded, and then you won’t slip.” 
“I have some self-control.” 
“Yes, well, I’ve seen that boy. Slipping would be completely justifiable considering the circumstances.” 
“What circumstances would those be?” Paige asked as she walked over to her dresser and opened her underwear drawer. 
“That gleam in his eyes,” Denise said. 
“What gleam?” Paige asked, turning to her mom. 
“The one he gets when he’s looking at you. It’s something that goes way beyond sex.” 
“Well, he is a nice young man,” Paige said mockingly. 
“Yes, he is.” Denise nodded, taking a sip of her wine.
She grabbed a fairly tame pair with yellow and white stripes. Stripes didn’t scream “I’m going to have sex tonight,” at least not like black or red lace would have. She could’ve sworn she’d read that stripes were unflattering on everyone. Or was that faux fur? 

She dug around in the drawer and found her strapless bra. She grabbed her clothes from the bed and went into the bathroom.

Shannon Richard grew up in the Florida Panhandle as the baby sister of two overly protective but loving brothers. She was raised by a more than somewhat eccentric mother, a self-proclaimed vocabularist who showed her how to get lost in a book and a father who passed on his love for coffee and really loud music. She graduated from Florida State University with a BA in English Literature and still lives in Tallahassee where she battles everyday life with writing, reading, and a rant every once in a while. Okay, so the rants might happen on a regular basis. She's still waiting for her Southern, scruffy, Mr. Darcy, and in the meantime writes love stories to indulge her overactive imagination. Oh, and she's a pretty big fan of the whimsy.
