{Romance Minute Review} Love on Location by Claire Baxter

{Romance Minute Review} Love on Location by Claire Baxter

Love on Location (Random Romance)
A deliciously fun rom com about a girl who has big dreams and just can't stop herself from falling in love.

Shayna is this close to getting her dream job as a location manager for a new TV soap, she just needs to find the right house to film it in, and the job is hers.

Luckily, she's found the perfect place. Unluckily, the owner - who is tall, dark and more handsome than is fair - is stubbornly refusing to let her use it unless she goes to dinner with him. No harm in that, right?

Lachlan swore he'd never go back into show business - not 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? (Blurb via Goodreads)
{Details} Kindle Edition, 157 pages. Published May 1st 2014 by Random House Australia. Source: Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Many thanks to Claire Baxter and Random House

{Rating} 4/5 - I really liked it!

"Shayna placed a big fat tick in the final box on her checklist." (page 1, line 1)
Cute, fun, sweet romance. Shayna was a great heroine. She's kind and generous, dedicated to her job, to people she cares about. I thought her job - and the role it plays in the plot - was really interesting and illuminates the type of girl she is, and how important movies are in her life. Lachlan first appears to be a surly, grumpy guy but as the story progresses we get to know what kind of guy he really is, a talented, compassionate guy. And he has an awesome house.

Shayna and Lachlan are so much alike, they are both in desperate need of love, who have demons that color their actions and reactions. I enjoyed watching their romance, as they confront those demons, as they learn to trust and fall in love. The characters have great chemistry but if you're looking for some steam you won't find it here, things stop at the bedroom door.
