A BRUSH WITH THE LAW by Janette Rallison
Bethany has endured a streak of depressing Valentine’s Days. And this one is turning out no different. Her friend set her up on a blind date—and Bethany can only hope that James will be a decent guy. But it seems the fated day has other plans, and Bethany finds herself in the middle of a comedy of errors that make a blind date with a stranger the least of her problems.

EVERY OCCASION by Heather B. Moore
When Maurie moves back to her hometown to open up her dream shop, she calls a local construction crew for help. Former teenage crush Grant shows up on her front porch, answering the call for the construction job, and Maurie’s memories of her troubled childhood return with full force. When she discovers Grant has a troubled past of his own, Maurie realizes that she might have misjudged him all along.

HOLD YOUR BREATH by Jenny Proctor
As Kayla trains for the Olympic swimming trials, she vows to never let another boyfriend get in her way. When she finds out her younger sister’s new high school swim coach is Nate—the guy Kayla had a huge crush on when they were in school together—Kayla realizes that her resolve is weakening. But Kayla isn’t willing to risk giving up her Olympic dream for anyone, not even charming Nate.

When Sam’s long-time boyfriend, Steve, texts that he has something important to ask her on Valentine’s Day, she’s sure that he’s going to propose. Determined to look great for the big day, she hits the all-night laundromat to wash her favorite outfit. When her clothes are chugging away in a machine, Steve calls and pops a question—not one she ever would have expected. Reeling with shock, she’s left facing the holiday alone, unless you count the other person at laundromat, a guy leaning against his own washer, intent on his phone.

DEAL BREAKERS by Heather Tullis
The last place Colette wants to be stranded is the snowed-in Denver airport, especially when her sister is enduring chemo treatments and needs Colette’s help back home. When Colette runs into another stranded passenger—none other than former college boyfriend Drew—she can’t believe how much he’s changed . . . and hasn’t changed. Drew is still the same amazing guy that Colette was foolish enough to blow off for someone else. By the time she’d realized her mistake all those years ago, Drew’s heart had been too broken to give her a second chance. Now Colette can only hope that she can work her way back into his heart.

HEY, HELEN! by Sarah M. Eden
On the surface, Helen seems to have her life figured out. Her advice column, Hey, Helen!, is gaining more readers every week. She regularly hangs out with the guy next door, laughing and chatting over pizza and work. But when her feelings for her handsome neighbor begin tiptoeing toward something more than friendship, Helen can’t help hoping Neil might feel the same way. Between her own uncertainties, his friend-zone treatment of her, and a pair of loudly interfering parents, Hey, Helen! could use a little advice in love.

My Review

The VALENTINE'S DAY COLLECTION was a fun, sweet, and entertaining read from beginning to end! Full of heartwarming stories and happily-ever-afters perfect for the holiday and any time readers are looking for some stories to lift the heart.

A BRUSH WITH THE LAW by Janette Rallison: I love the humor this author always weaves through her stories. This one was full of laugh-out-loud moments, crazy situations, and endearingly sweet romance. A favorite from this collection and a story I plan on re-reading many times.

EVERY OCCASION by Heather B. Moore: This story had lots of chemistry mixed with lots of heartfelt moments. I loved the balance between some past sad memories, where the characters are in the present, and the possibility of what they're future could hold. Another lovely story.

HOLD YOUR BREATH by Jenny Proctor: This story was just pure enjoyment. I loved the characters, the teasing, the flirting, and this seriously great guy who put his heart out there. Another favorite.

THE ULTIMATE BACHELOR CHALLENGE by Annette Lyon: This started off all fun, took a stop at some serious heartbreak, and involved a sweet guy who sees Sam as she really is—something to be treasured. Another story I plan on re-reading.

DEAL BREAKERS by Heather Tullis: This was a really sweet story. I didn't feel the chemistry or love the dialogue as much as the other stories. I think the way the characters still had some issues and were a little dramatic about stuff they should have been over a long time ago was one thing that didn't quite work with me. Otherwise, still an enjoyable story.

HEY, HELEN! by Sarah M. Eden: This was a crazy, sweet, adorable story! I loved the characters and I loved how Neil tried to figure out how to let Helen know how he felt. There was quite a bit of drama, but I loved the sweet moments and dialogue the most. Another great story!

In the end, was it what I wished for? Yes. Sweet, adorable, and fun romance. If you enjoy chick-lit or sweet romance, this is a great collection to grab!
