This contemporary romance story from S.M. West was sweet and easy. S.M. West delightfully pens a lovely romance where the hero will make you swoon. Told from the alternating first person points of view of the main characters the story takes readers on an angsty and romantic journey to finding love and acceptance.
The main characters find each other at a time in their lives when they weren't expecting each other at all. Upon first sight something just clicked for Sam and Olivia. Sam a renowned celebrity chef catches sight of divorcee/mother Olivia in his restaurant one evening and actively pursues her much to her chagrin. Their banter and the thrill of the chase was fun. It was entertaining to see Olivia let go and joke. Her friends made me laugh. At times, the push/pull between the two got a little too angsty for me. I never felt like Olivia truly let go of her issues. One of which was her being older and that persistent problem for her wore on me a bit. Sam was a constant bright spot, he pulled the insecurities out of her carefully and patiently.
Overall, Made to Love is a sassy, fun, light romantic story between a seemingly unlikely pair who fell fast for each other's friendship and companionship. It's a story with a good chase and real characters.
