HersLuckily she's found the perfect place Unluckily the owner who is tall dark and handsome than is fair is stubbornly refusing to let her use it unless she goes to dinner with him No harm in that rightLachlan swore he'd never go back into show business not. I m on a bit of a show business fiction kick at the moment if you haven t noticed There are so many wonderful stories that revolve around the glamour fashion and mystery of what happens behind the camera Love on Location takes a different aspect of this business its heroine is a location scout and hero the owner of The Perfect House for a new series It s also an Australian setting which was even interesting to me because it s a much smaller industry and I ve been to similar places that are mentioned in the book Who knows next time I might just spy some of the talent on offer like Love on LocationShayna is a location scout soon to be manager don t worry if you don t know what they do there s an excellent explanation no Wikipedia reuired She s after the perfect house by the water in Sydney for a new series She s found her location but the owner isn t willing to give up his house to a film crew Perhaps if Shayna went out to dinner with him it could be of useDon t worry this book is nowhere as sleazy as I ve just made it sound It s a sweet romance ie no steamy embarrassing on public transport scenes with a very likeable hero in Lachlan ex child actor and son of a famous family now an architect who shuns the spotlight He s realistically drool worthy and he designs gorgeous sounding houses Shayna s a somewhat troubled heroine with family issues and the need to prove herself at work to pursue her dream Even though the pair tries to keep it casual you know what s going to happen and it s a lovely job as a reader to find out how it doesAlthough Love on Location is listed as a novella it s a fairly long one There s a good set up of the initial tension between Shayna and Lachlan the relaxing and fun times as they become friends and then as they become an item I would have liked to have seen the conflict and Shayna s problems spread out a little through the book as the issues the couple had to work through seemed to be close together at the end There are also some sweet moments as Shayna helps to repair a family rift which is starkly in contrast to her life as a foster child This is another thing I d like to have seen explored but I think if all those things were included the book would not only be much longer but lose some of the sweet tone Love on Location is essentially a book to put a smile on your face while you re stuck under someone s armpit on a train yes this did happen to me and brighten up your dayThank you to Random House Australia and Net Galley for the eARChttpsamstillreadingwordpresscom

Love on Location

After his heart was broken and the last thing he wants is a film crew traipsing through his house but there's something about Shayna that's making it hard to say no He won't let anyone near his heart and she's not looking for love what could possibly go wrong. 3 and a 12 starsI generally don t read a lot of novellas I find it hard to get into them because I long for the depth of plot and characters only a full length novel can provide With this in mind I was very impressed with Baxter s lead characters Shayna is bright and bubbly and a very likeable heroine and she had unexpected depth beneath her sunny personality Lachlan He s not so likeable At least not at first anyway I uite enjoy a moody lead male it makes for interesting reading Lachlan however errs on the arrogant side and at one stage I found myself genuinely concerned How was Baxter going to turn things around so the readers and Shayna fall for him Fortunately she manages it which I considered no small feat given the restrictions of a novella formatThe show business setting gives this novella extra interest and the plot was engaging with a pace that kept you keen to read on While the sexual chemistry is great between Shayna and Lachlan this novella will leave those who like some steam with their romance disappointed because the action stops at the bedroom door I also found it a little hard to adjust to how uickly everything was resolved at the end but this says about the format than the story itself Overall this is a fun enjoyable read and a great example of how shorter stories can deliver on both characters and plotI received a copy of this novella in return for an honest review

    I received an ARC through Netgalley in exchange for an honest reviewLove on Location is a short story about a location scout who falls in love with the owner of the house she just rented for a miniseries shooting The owner was a former child star who doesn't believe in love There is nothing original about the premises of Love on Location It's very cliched so don't go expecting anything else To me it was a palate clean

    In this cute rom com novella we find Shayna scouting a location for a new film and Lachlan being reluctant to let her use his home It's a novella so if I give any away I'll be telling you the whole story Suffice it to say Shayna and Lachlan think they're getting into a casual fling but their hearts have other ideas I liked that Shayna and Lachlan both really did want the same things They truly believed they wouldn't fall in love ever and ha
