A Come Rain or Come Shine Story

Hollywood made him a star. She makes him want to be a better man.

Charlotte Jeeves, “Charlie” to anyone not pulling her over or collecting her taxes, is the only one in town who’s not excited about her new neighbor, TV actor Jeeves Allencaster. It’s not “cute” how they share a name, and so not charming that he steals her muffin before they’ve even met. The last thing she wants is some slick Hollywood type turning her safe, small-town haven into a circus.

If the locals have their way, though, she and Jeeves will be dating by…well, it depends on who you ask—and how much they’ve invested in the betting pool.

Jeeves hates Hollwood. Mostly he just hates the way it’s changed him. Port Grable is the total opposite of LaLa Land—the perfect place to rediscover himself. His plan didn’t include hooking up with the bitter—yet undeniably lush—girl next door. She’s not his type, yet he can’t get her off his mind.

Trouble is, to thaw the ice around her heart, he’ll have to show her the real man behind the Hollywood charade. If he still exists…

I really enjoyed this novella. I liked the way the story progresses over six months. It made the relationship feel more natural. One thing I usually find in novellas is that the relationship moves at such a quick and unrealistic pace, but in LET ME CALL YOU SWEETHEART you can see the growth. The other thing I liked about this story is how Charlie is worn down by Jeeves. I am married to a man who annoyed me and bugged me until I finally went out with him. We will have been married for ten years in August. I love this type of relationship. LET ME CALL YOU SWEETHEART is a fun, snappy read that is sure to put a smile on the reader’s face.

  1. Yay! Sounds like a good novella and since school’s out novellas are working better for me — I have less time to read without interruptions from small fry!
