RELEASE BLITZ ~ #Giveaway ~ Review: Book of Love by Nina Lindsey

Title: Book of Love
Series: Bliss Cove #5
Author: Nina Lindsey
Genre: Spicy Sweet Contemporary Romance
Release Date: July 30, 2020


High school literature teacher Grace Berry is an expert on Shakespearean love, but she knows almost nothing about real-life romance. She has no time to learn either, as she's busy battling overbearing parents, a bullying principal, and a stubborn father.

Then she suddenly finds out that award-winning author Lincoln Atwood is coming to take over her classes. No way will she surrender her authority to a hotshot male writer who doesn't know the first thing about poetry. Even if he is sinfully sexy.

After making a deal with his estranged brother, Lincoln is forced to stay in Bliss Cove for over a month. He'd much rather be racing sled dogs or mountain biking, so why not take a teaching gig to kill the time?

But Lincoln's belief that teaching will be "easy" is quickly proven wrong after he confronts the intriguing Grace with her embroidered sweaters and spine of steel. And when he learns about the sizable gap in Grace's education, the plot thickens considerably.

Too bad this beautiful teacher is off-limits...or is she?

I'm no longer wondering who wrote the Book of Love. It's Nina Lindsey, one of my all-time favorite authors, and her latest release was not only the best in the Bliss Cove series thus far, but my top summer-time read.

I adored visiting the small seaside town of Bliss Cove as this author's magical and world-building writing style completely swept me away. I'm fascinated by the lives of her characters and consumed with unearthing their experiences and secrets. Here, we meet the world-renown writer Lincoln Attwood and the feisty yet innocent Lit teacher, Grace Berry. A chance encounter at a diner while sharing the last piece of rhubarb pie led this couple to so much more, and their unforgettable and passionate journey towards love is an absolute must read.

Looks were deceiving when it came to Grace. At first, she seemed to be the typical timid and soft-spoken school teacher who was overwhelmed by the many circumstances which plagued her life: her dad, an ornery principal and a combative student were indeed some of her difficulties.

However, beneath the surface, Grace was a tigress ready to pounce and take on any challenge that came her way. She absolutely ROCKED as far as heroines go. I loved her tenacity and spunk when recognizing and achieving precisely what she wanted. Lincoln's presence was undoubtedly disruptive, forcing her to revise the entire course curriculum and co-teach with the sexy author. But despite her lack of experience, the chemistry between them ignited a flame within Grace, and she was determined to fulfill her desires. What began as an uncomfortable situation turned into a beautiful, loving and heartwarming relationship.

The worldly and famous Lincoln Attwood was the perfect match for Grace. An overachiever with a driven personality, Lincoln gave his all when it came to working with the red-headed prim yet sexy school teacher. It was adorable seeing them combat each other both inside and out of the classroom.

For the most part, Lincoln was extremely guarded and not one for long term relationships. Coming from a dysfunctional family and estranged from his younger brother Sam for years, tainted him. But since Grace unexpectedly entered into his life, Lincoln found himself falling in love. I relished seeing his character evolve from the aloof and stubborn man to the warm, loving, protective and possessive hero who quickly captured my heart.

Beautifully written and with all the feels, I've enjoyed every moment of Lincoln and Grace's journey. Nina Linsey has the gift of creating fascinating characters and a story-line that touches the very heart of me. Book of Love was no exception as this couple's instant connection and intense chemistry captivated me from beginning to end. Great fun spending time with the couples from previous installments as well as the cast of new and lovable characters. Five brilliant stars for another magnificent tale. The perfect read for fans of contemporary romances that I highly recommend.


“I told you I’m not good at relationships," he retorted. "Whereas you—”

“I what?”

“You’re goddamned made for…for being with someone. For…”

For being with me. The words almost flew out of his mouth before he could even process them. What the hell was he thinking?

Grace blew out her breath in an exasperated sigh. “I’m busy, all right? I don’t have time for a relationship.”


“Lincoln! My classes and drama club take up a lot of time, I’m prepping for summer school, and I have to help my father.”

“Your father doesn’t need your help.”

Her eyes hardened. “You don’t know him. Or me, for that matter. You certainly have no business questioning my love life.”

“Given the way you kissed me the other night, yes I do,” he snapped.

She pressed her lips together, her flush deepening. “You made it quite clear you’re not interested.”

“That’s not what I was doing!” He turned abruptly, spreading his arms out. “The problem is that I’m too fucking interested. You’re damned right I’m fixated on you, and it’s driving me crazy. I’ve wanted you from the second I saw you sitting at the diner, I can’t stop staring at you in class, and all I want to do is kiss you again. Hell, half the time I can’t even think about anything except how much I want to touch you. If I had any intention of staying here, I—”

“Lincoln, will you have sex with me?”
