Rating: 4 Cups
When Gregor Lubovich was a child, he lived in Russia where he spent most of his time with his beloved grandparents until his parents took him to America for a better opportunity at life. It may have been the best thing for him, the best for his future, but it still felt as if his ten year old heart was being ripped apart.
Rosa Reyes works at House of Dormande, the most prestigious interior designer headed up by a temperamental but efficient and perfectionist of a boss. When a very impressive and well known mansion comes up for redecoration, Rosa jumps at the chance.
When Greg finds out that it is Rosa who will be redesigning his home, it brings back memories of their three year relationship from seven years ago, especially the part where she broke his heart. For Rosa, knowing that she will be working closely with Greg has her having flashbacks as well, ones that leave her emotionally and physically confused. When presented with the chance at being with the love of your life a second time, can Greg and Rosa overcome past hurts to begin again or is already too late?
Love by Design is a heartfelt love story full of both past and present tension and passion, keeping the reader on edge. Ms. McGier tells the tale of second chances writing this novel with a poignant pen, using the characters' past relationship as a background to build on their current feelings and emotions. This novel is the third book in the Reyes Family Romance and has some returning characters, however can still be read as a standalone. I enjoyed the humor, sensitivity, passion, frustration, learning experiences, and heart-wrenching scenes depicted within the story and found myself especially enthralled with Monsieur Dormande as he seemed to be a little on the conniving side when it came to bringing Rosa and Gregor together for the first time. A great read whether you are a first time reader of the author, as I am, or a fan of the Reyes and their ever growing family.
