Book Review: Starting Over by Stacy Finz

Starting Over (Nugget series #4)
Stacy Finz
Kensington/Lyrical Press
320 pages
Two and a half stars

The mountain town of Nugget, California, may be tiny, but with its breathtaking scenery, fresh air, and lovable locals, it has everything. Not to mention it’s the perfect setting for firsts—and seconds—of all kinds…

On the day of her glitzy New York City wedding, society girl Samantha Dunsbury ditches her Wall Street groom, and hops in her convertible. Her only plan is to head west. But when a pit stop lands her at a lovely Victorian inn in Nugget, she doesn’t want to leave. And when the innkeeper needs someone to fill in, Sam is thrilled to take the job—her first! For once, she’s going to do what makes her happy. She just has to figure out what happy looks like. She never expects it to look like her surly new boss…

The last thing Nate Breyer needs is a debutante dilettante mucking up his business. How his sister—and co-owner—could’ve hired Sam is beyond him. Nate’s known women like Sam before—he was engaged to one once. With no options, he’ll just have to keep his eye on her while also keeping his distance. But to his surprise it turns out Sam’s got a knack for the job, and for putting folks at ease—including Nate. As business—and pleasure—heat up their relationship, Nate finds himself ready to do anything to persuade the runaway-bride to stay permanently gone.

My view of the book:
I'll start out that I love this series, but Nate. the male protagonist in this book, I just could not stand. I really liked Samantha, but found Nate to be a total @$$ for most of this book. I definitely could not get into them as a couple and was even somewhat repulsed by how he acted. I had thought at first of just giving this 2 stars, but when the story did not involve Nate, I liked the book. I'd probably give this book 2 and a half stars if I could. I look forward to future books; I just hope they do not include much of Nate.

I received this book through NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review
