A B&B owner takes on a posh hotel developer in this enemies-to-lovers story with plenty of South Florida heat.

The grudge match is set to get nasty.

Wesley and Nathan are willing to pull out all the stops to achieve their dreams.

They just never expected the heat between them to carry over to the bedroom.

After one reckless night burning up the sheets, Wes and Nathan can’t stay away from each other.

But is there any hope of them having their happily ever after when it means someone has to give up his dream?

All For Wesley is a standalone enemies-to-lovers MM romance with sneaking, spying, family troubles, helpful movie stars, one poorly timed hurricane, and all the feels.

All for Wesley is the second book in the Pineapple Grove series that focuses on a small town. The second book is about Wesley, a B&B owner and Nathan, a big time developer. The two can’t stand each other as Nathan has had his eye on Wes’ property for a while now. Then everything changes or does it?

I love a good story that focuses on the enemy to friends or enemy to lovers story, but it has to be believable. It’s not a theme that is easy to write and while we saw Wes and Nathan’s story come from a mile away in the previous book, I thought it was well handled. The friendship and romance develops slowly and both characters, their drive and interest are explored. I thought it was really well done with a good pacing.  We got to know Wes some more and what drive Nathan to be who he is.

The only thing that niggled me was the constant focus on the B&B. Yes it’s a big thing to stand in between a romance (both literally and figuratively), yet I thought the problem in the story was handled a little one-sided, if that makes sense without giving the story away.

In the end though, All for Wesley was a lovely read with a sweet romance that I couldn’t put down. It was well written, nicely paced and with some cute and quirky characters.
