Delaney Masterson isn't looking for fame.
Yes, she has famous parents and a reality TV show, but she's not the wild-child celebrity the paparazzi have painted her to be. Until... The Scandal. When an old boyfriend releases a private video, Delaney's name becomes every comedian's favorite punch line. To escape the media, she sneaks away to Bell Harbor, Michigan - during the worst winter in fifty years.
Adventure show cameraman Grant Connelly has stayed away from Bell Harbor - mostly by choice - but when a family obligation converges with a spontaneous career decision, it's time to return home.
When bad weather, missing money, honky-tonk musicians, and Elvis impersonators throw Grant and Delaney together on an unexpected road trip, emotions get all shook up. They know only fools fall in love, but they can't help falling. Still, Delaney has a secret that could tear them apart forever.
Can they weather the storm? Or will this romantic ride end at the Heartbreak Hotel?

Thanks and respect to the women that served and paid a high price. You are still gorgeous Shi; your scars make you even more beautiful.
I wanted to like this one I really did and for the three and a half hours I did. Eventually though the whole "I can't say anything about who I really am. First due to not trusting anyone not to sell her out to the paparazzi; then because if he knew the person she really was he wouldn't like her. In the meantime anyone who's read listened to this genre knows it's gonna come around and bite her on some portion of her anatomy. Please writers, try a little harder to come up with a plot that doesn't include these same old cliched plot devices. Even with so many positive aspects that beg for a recommendation I do believe that I've reached my limit for the same 'ol thing.
Feel Good Story
I loved the humor and the attraction between Delaney and Grant and I loved The Paradise Boys
Emily Sutton-Smith made the story come to life. Oh My God.....the voice she did for Reggie, the way she did his accent and his way of speaking was Amazing !!! She had me laughing so hard and smiling so big, it just made me happy listening to her. The book was tender, sweet and funny but Emily Sutton-Smith, made the characters all feel so human to me through her narration. I listen to a lot of Audible Books, a lot of narrators, but Emily Sutton-Smith is my favorite now. She just does a remarkable job with all of her characters and the way she speaks. The emotion she delivers through her presentation of the story is remarkable. I am going to Audible now to see what else she has narrated because I am certain they will all be good and I can't wait. Hats off to you Emily Sutton-Smith !!!
I love the way Delaney and Grant bonded and had a deep connection. I also loved The Paradise Boys, especially Reggie. He was hilarious and turned out to be so sweet.
This was my first Tracy Brogan book. She has made a forever fan out of me. I loved the book and am going online to find more of her books. Amazing writer, wonderful story. I think this is the first Audible Book I have heard narrated by Emily Sutton-Smith and I can honestly say, she is the best narrator I have ever listened to. She is so spot on with the emotion and delivery in her narration, it brings the characters to life. Amazing job !!!
Tracy's books tend to feel a little over elaborated to the point where it feels off subject but in this books case it was all very entertaining and interesting so I did mind additional story paths. A good one.
Love Me Sweet is the third book in the Bell Harbor series, but it can easily be read as a standalone. I had not read the prior two books, and I had no problem following the story or falling in love with the characters. After reading Tracy Brogan’s Love Me Sweet, I do plan on adding her prior books to my TBR list!
Love Me Sweet is a fun, lighthearted romance. I loved the tie into the entertainment industry and Delaney’s (aka Elaine) attempts to dodge the paparazzi and the scandal from which she is hiding. The best part was Delaney’s and Grant’s eschewing of the hype and shallowness in the entertainment industry and specifically reality television programs. Delaney’s phone conversations with her sister, Melody, about her LA scandal, her Bell Harbor “adventure” and her subsequent road trip are full of sibling humor.
Grant and Delaney are believable and likable characters, and their chemistry is undeniable. The secondary characters add hilarity to the story. Everyone from the flamboyant wedding planner, Fontaine, to the members of the Paradise Brothers Band add to the plot tension and overall charm of the story.
Love Me Sweet is adorable and entertaining from start to finish, and I am looking forward to reading more of Ms. Brogan’s Bell Harbor stories.
Great story because I love this series but Emily Sutton-Smith made it even better with her incredible narration. She wasn't just reading the story, she acted it out through her voice. So much fun!
out of all three books, this one was my favorite! the third person point of view made it so you can see what each character feels making you feel the butterflies in your tummy!
I do love and appreciate Tracey Brogan's sense of humor and whenever I want to listen or read something that takes my mind off of everyday life she is my go to author. I especially love the Bell Harbor series and this is her latest and I highly recommend it for a romantic giggle.
"A Real 'Boogy-Woogy' Book"
A light-hearted and comical read demonstrating how one action, taken out of context, can very quickly snowball out of control. A tale of betrayal, heartache, friendship and love. I would certainly recommend this book. I enjoyed listening to this my first Tracy Brogan novel. I liked her very humorous style of describing certain scenarios, which was very well supported too by the Narrater Emily Sutton-Smith.
I thoroughly enjoyed this novel. It gets a Five Star rating from me.
