Love Walks In by Samantha Chase Spotlight Tour

The Shaughnessy Brothers are back

He lives by a schedule

Aubrey Burke is on the run from an about-to-be-disastrous mistake when resort owner Hugh Shaughnessy catches her climbing through his office window. Until Aubrey tumbled into his life, Hugh had relied on work and discipline to safeguard a heart damaged by family tragedy. Now his careful world will never be the same.

She lives for the moment

Hugh's approach to life and love is the opposite of Aubrey's, but she soon finds herself falling hard for the handsome hotel mogul. There's a darker reason behind her "live for today" attitude than Hugh could possibly know, but for the first time Aubrey dares to hope this man's love might make it worth taking a chance on the future.

“Mmm…this is nice,” Aubrey murmured as Hugh held her in his arms and swayed to the music.

“It certainly is,” he agreed, pulling her just a little bit closer.

“Your family knows how to throw a party. Believe me, I know. I’ve done dozens of parties for my father’s company and never have I ever seen so many smiling faces.”

Hugh chuckled. “Probably because everyone here is just happy to celebrate Dad’s birthday. No one’s hitting them up for money or business deals.”

“Maybe,” she sighed and lifted her head from his shoulder. “Your dad is enjoying himself.”

The sight of his father dancing with Martha Tate was a little much for Hugh to process so he put his focus back on Aubrey. “He deserves it. Normally we have a family dinner to celebrate his birthday, but as he’s getting out and socializing a little bit more these days, we all thought we’d try this. I guess it was a good call.”

“I’d say it was definitely a success.”

They swayed until the song ended and then made their way off the makeshift dance floor. Looking at his watch, Hugh saw it was nearing midnight and the crowd was starting to thin. It would have been easy to make the rounds and say good night to everyone, but he wanted to wait until it was just the family left.

His eyes scanned the room and he saw Aidan and Zoe sitting in the corner talking with Owen. Darcy was standing with a small group of ladies from the neighborhood—no doubt talking about how she was enjoying college. Riley was over by the bar talking with one of the waitresses. Hugh realized it was Tina Kay—a girl his brother had dated in high school. He couldn’t help but smile and wonder if it was awkward for Riley when he ran into old girlfriends.

Anna and Mark were talking with the rest of the Hannigans, and Hugh was relieved the earlier tension had died down. But where exactly was Quinn?

A loud bark of laughter rang out from across the room and Hugh breathed a sigh of relief when he spotted Quinn talking with a few of his father’s cronies. They were all interested in the classic cars Quinn specialized in, so there was probably a heated debate going on.

“You’re smiling,” Aubrey said softly beside him.

“This is good.” He wrapped an arm around her waist. “I’m looking around the room and it’s filled with all the people who mean the most to me. They’re all here for Dad and they’re all having a good time.” He kissed her temple. “In my book, that makes it a good night.”

“A great one,” she said.

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

Hugh likes to plan. His life is run by his schedule and he doesn't like change or spontaneity. Aubrey is a runaway bride who has lived her life to please her parents. But meeting Hugh gives her a chance to live life on her terms and she is eager to get as much out of life as she can.

Love Walks In is dual point of view, but Hugh was the star of the book for me. I could relate to his need to plan everything out and not take risks. The continual badgering from his family that he needs to loosen up started to bug me after a while because I thought Hugh was pretty great the way he was. Aubrey is a good, hard working, loving, and fun woman, and even though it seems on the surface that she didn't have much in common with Hugh, they are well matched.

This was a very entertaining read. Aubrey and Hugh's initial meeting had me laughing and Hugh's resorts made me want to go on holiday. Love Walks In is a lovely traditional romance and I had a good time reading it.
