Change of Heart (Lobster Cove #1) by Jennifer Moore + $25 Giveaway

Change of Heart 
This summer, Nathaniel Cavanaugh vacations in Lobster Cove to spend quality time with his kids after his estranged wife’s tragic death. Successful and well-connected, he is on the fast-track to the highest legal positions in the country, but his family life suffers. After an accident throws Val nearly into his lap and costs her a job opportunity, Nathaniel surprises himself by overlooking her outlandish appearance and lack of qualifications to offer her a job as his nanny for the summer. Valdosta McKinley wishes for an internship at a Paris Art Institute to use her newly acquired art-history skills. She knows Nathaniel could never develop feelings for a girl from a trailer in a rural West Virginia holler—a lesson she learned the hard way years earlier. Will pursuit of their professional goals require Nathaniel and Val to give up the dream of being a family?

The concept and plot of this story isn't a new one.  But it is a good one.  And well worth repeating when it is done well.  This book was so fun and I was caught up in the romance of it all.  

It was so easy to like both Nathaniel and Val.  Val will make you smile on almost every single page.  She has charm and quirk to go with her heart of gold.  Nathaniel has a few hangups but he is a good man.  Val brings out the very best in him by treating him with respect and kindness.  Val is a good cheerleader.  I loved how their relationship grew into friendship and then something more.  This book turned into an excellent romantic movie in my head.  I love when that happens

Jennifer Moore is one of my favorite authors and  I love reading her books.  This looks to be the first of a new series and I can't wait to see who's story we get to see next.  

Enjoy the following excerpt!

The crashing of waves soothed him and let him relax as he enjoyed the warm drink. His eyes drifted shut.
    “Mr. Cavanaugh?”
With a start, he opened his eyes. “I really think you should call me Nathaniel.” He was starting to getdrowsy.
        “Sir, that would be completely inappropriate, not
when I’m working for you.”
    “That’s true, but sometimes you don’t seem like an
Val raised her eyes and their gazes met. “I don’t act
very professional, do I?”
    “That’s not what I meant. Sometimes, you seem
more like a friend.” Nathaniel could tell that his guard was down. Why did talking to someone at night free people of their inhibitions? He needed to be careful not to say anything he’d regret.
Val picked at her nails. “I need to thank you again for coming to get me. It’s the second time you’ve rescued me. I’m not doing very well in the whole ‘being an independent woman’ department, am I?”
    “That’s what friends do.” He closed his eyes and let his head fall back against the chair. Moments later, he sleepily registered Val had moved the blanket to cover him and took the empty mug from his hand, but he was too tired to do more than mutter,     “Thanks.”

    “Good night, Nathaniel.”
