Review: Meant to Love by Lucy Darling


Published Nov. 2019

Colden ‘Cold’ Jackson is as cold as his name. He has one purpose in life, to clean up the mess his father left behind and give his younger sister a better life. That is until Penelope shows up, piercing him to his core with her warm smile and soft innocence. She makes him long for things he never knew he wanted.

Penelope’s on the brink of being homeless. With only a few dollars left in her pocket and nowhere to go, she takes a job that sounds too good to be true. She soon discovers the only position her boss will accept is her being his wife. Colden can’t let go of her warmth, and she wants to trust him with her heart. He only has to convince her that she’s changed him forever.

May be spoilers:

Meant to Love has 18 chapters with an epilogue and is about Colden and Penelope.

I read Meant to Be first, but I think you can read it in any order.

They meet when Penelope is hired to be Colden’s personal assistant. They both need the other for different reasons.

Instalove for the both of them. I love that he knew who she was to him just from smelling Charla. She’s a virgin. It doesn’t say how long it’s been for him.

Slight misunderstanding, but it’s over pretty quickly, she doesn’t even make it out of the elevator.

Slight ow blip from the mayor’s daughter, but that was over quickly.

Just a short story with these two getting together. I loved it. Flows well. Sweet and steamy.

No cheating, no real ow/om drama-couple of blips, but over quickly, no separations.

Epilogue is a few years out. They are happily married with 3 kids. I gave it 🌟🌟🌟🌟. Thanks for reading.
