Blog Review ~ Made To Love by S.M West

Made To Love by S.M West

Burned by love once before, divorcee Olivia Cassidy isn’t looking for a recipe for “happily ever after”. The first time she thought she found forever, it turned out to be a marriage with no sizzle and no spice. 

Busy starting up her own business and raising two older children, love is the last thing Olivia is looking for—but when the sexy young chef Samson Beaulieu comes into her life, he’s suddenly mixing up something new. 

Now it’s up to Sam to show Olivia how delectable their future can be. He may know how to heat things up—both in the kitchen and in the bedroom—but is Sam really made to love her?

3.5 stars
This book wasn't bad, I enjoyed a lot of the emotions that it pulled from me and the sense of not just love between two people, but the love that you get when bring someone into your world, to meet others that are important to your life. The side characters had me wanting more, while the main couple kept me entertained.
I had a troubling time connecting with Olivia, but I think a lot of it had to do with her yo-yo actions. She starts this thing with Sam and wants to be with him, but seems to force herself to put distance between them, emotionally and physically, when what her heart wants most is to just be with him. I saw her falling in love with him piece by piece, and it was beautiful, but she seemed determined to avoid it. It wasn't the sense of "I don't deserve him, I'm not worthy", it was more along the lines of the slight possibility that history may repeat itself so why take that 5% chance.
Their story is unique, and the plot was great in all, it just wasn't for me. If asked, I would probably tell them to try it for themselves.
