True love is in the details for the Jersey shore’s premier wedding planner in this heart-swooning series about big dreams and happy endings from New York Times bestselling author Jennifer Probst.
Avery Sunshine might not have a soul mate of her own, but she still believes in happily ever after—for her clients. Making dreams come true is her business at Sunshine Bridal, which she runs with her two sisters. When her best friend announces her engagement, Avery is thrilled to take charge of the giddy bride-to-be’s big day. Less thrilling? Her best friend’s arrogant and demanding brother, who just so happens to be the man of honor.
Carter Ross’s first instinct: call 911. He promised to always take care of his impulsive little sister, and he honors that vow. Even if it means taking over her wedding, where he is sure Avery will fail. At best, Avery is unpredictable. At worst, if she’s anything like the spitfire of a college girl he remembers, the main event could run wild.
With Avery and Carter wrestling for control, tempers heat up. So does the spark of attraction they’re fighting with every kiss. As the wedding draws near, it’s time to reconcile a rocky past and make a decision that could change everyone’s lives. Because what they’re rebelling against looks a lot like love.
Love on Beach Avenue is a super sweet romance between best friend and older brother, but it is also a profound reflection of how we can lose ourselves to our responsibilities.
Both Avery and Carter have lost the fun and spontaneity in their lives and use work as a crutch to keep them from analysing the causes of the rut they have found themselves in. Although Carter has additional reasons for avoiding emotional entanglements beyond his sister and his sassy dog.
I adored how romantic Avery was and the way she refused to sell herself short on the relationship front; determined to have the fairytale and unapologetic in her determination to get it. I also really, really wanted her purple house – the way it was described made it my ideal home 😍
