Smoky Mountain Lodge, a hotel owned and operated by Lennox Enterprises, has been underperforming since Joelle Bannon quit two months ago for a position at Island Street Deli. Underpaid and undervalued, she’d rather work someplace with lower expectations than at a hotel where she hasn’t had a raise in ten years.
In his new role as district manager at Lennox Enterprises, Giovanni Lennox has the task of rebuilding employee relations with management, starting with Joelle. His goal is to get her to take her job back at Smoky Mountain Lodge, or convince her to help him with tips to get the lodge back in its former profitable state. When she refuses both options, he makes it his business to dig into her life and find out everything he can about her in hopes of persuading Joelle to abide by his wishes. He never thought he’d end up falling in LOVE.

The much anticipated story for Giovanni Lennox was just what the doctor ordered, a heavy dosage of laughter, emotional issues, and loves unbounded connection between an unlikely pair. Giovanni had always been the outspoken person in his family. He was the one who took his mother abandoning the family the hardest, as a result relationships were always casual. That was the case until Remy asked him to find out the real reason an employee of ten years suddenly quit and went to work for a diner where she made less money. Joelle Bannon came across initially as cold and distant. Giovanni almost gave up on the task to bring the company's most dedicated employee back when everything he tried with her had no impact on her.. He offered her double the salary, a promotion, and a consulting fee that would have turned most folks head if they only made $9.00 an hour, but it did not phase Joelle. Over the next couple of weeks Giovanni showed up everyday at the diner, constantly eating and wearing her...
I enjoy love stories. I liked that the main characters were themselves from the onset. There was no sappy, doe-eyed crush to work thru. Finding the strength and courage to overcome their initial impressions kept me turning the page.
I think there could be more development of their lives prior to meeting, it would give a bit more debt to the characters.
I enjoyed the tears I shed at the end.
This is a sweet story, and i love this family. I enjoyed Giovanni's story the best. I wish the stories were longer and more thoroughly edited. The characters often speak in fragments rather than full sentences, which started to annoy me in parts where all the dialog was a series of fragments. However, it was not so much of a distraction that I would not happily buy the next installment of this series. Kudos on creating a beautiful family i look forward to visiting again!
