Romance Contemporary | Novella / Short Story

Nate and Olivia have been together for more than a decade, with respective careers and two young kids keeping them busy. Their life together as a couple started as friends with benefits, but soon progressed to something much deeper and loving. Now, looking back at a decade of marriage Olivia feels they are growing apart or maybe something is slowly tearing them apart. It's Olivia's birthday soon and they recently had a very lackluster anniversary pass by them. With a major milestone approaching Liv decides to have it out with Nate. Next they are having a fight, pacifying their terrified kids, and Liv's friends are planning her 40th. Nate might just surprise her and whisk her off to a much needed couple time.

ON HART'S BOARDWALK is a novella about the couple getting their marriage back on track. Their love story is a whole length novel part of the On Dublin Street series by the author Samantha Young. However, this novella is a story in and of itself. If you haven't read the series, it will not take away from the current story.

I enjoyed how these characters hash out their distance and remind each other how much love they have for each other. Of course there is a fair amount of steamy scenes which were vital for Nate and Olivia as a couple. Their chemistry no doubt shines through and made my toes curl a few times. I loved their story of coming together and it was a pleasure to meet them and some of the other characters of the series again.

As a novella, ON HART'S BOARDWALK is a great option as a quick, refreshing, feel good read.

Nate and Liv have a great life together but they miss the spontaneity and freedom they enjoyed early on in their romance. Careers and their children have inevitably kept them busy, so when Nate discovers Liv is feeling disconnected from him, he plans an anniversary trip to the idyllic seaside town of Hartwell, Delaware. There he hopes they will have the opportunity they've been craving--a chance to reinvent themselves and fall in love all over again.

With each new day comes a new adventure, from wedding crashing at the five-star boardwalk hotel to pretending they are two strangers having a chance encounter at the boardwalk bar. In the midst of this daring, sexually- charged game of romantic rediscovery, Nate and Liv discover the only constant they need is each other.
