      We remember bakery owner Emma & police chief Oliver from the first book. They were, and still are, of course, best friends with Audrey and Adam. And now they’re finally getting their own story.They’ve grown up together in the same neighborhood. They were besties until Oliver was 15 and found out his dad was a serial cheater. That’s when he decided that he would never have a chance for a HEA – it’s not in his DNA – so he became a manwhore. No cheating, no married people, but still [...]

      I adored It Had To Be You from beginning to end. What a pleasure it was to read Melissa Kate, a new-to-me author. The story was bright, funny, infuriating and just plain entertaining. As the book begins, you know that you are in for a fun and wild ride with Emma and Oliver. When you add in Audrey and the Geriatric Crew, it became laugh-out-loud funny.Emma and Oliver have a past. One that was once light-hearted and fun that turned into teasing and detestation. The past held more bad memories for [...]

      4 goldilocks stars! ARC kindly provided by : It Had To Be You is my first book to author Melissa Kate. From the moment I read the blurb on NetGalley, I knew I had to read this book because who wouldn't want to read a frenmies to lovers story. Emma and Oliver used to be best friends who spent most of their time together, but one day Oliver cut Emma off of his life without an explanation and that was the beginning of their cold war.When her loser of an ex boyfriend came back to town with his soon [...]

      Emma Wyatt never knew why her best friend as a kid turned out to be a jerk but that animosity has grown over the years and Emma knows one thing, she still dislikes Oliver. He is a player and seems to get a perverse kick out of teasing her. When Emma inadvertently wins Oliver at a bachelor auction she never expects that he ends up being her pretend boyfriend and she is livid. Everyone knows nothing is a secret in a small town but what happens when that constant friction between them turns to some [...]

      I picked up this book from Netgalley based on the cover - I'm a cover s**t what can I say - and I had no idea what to expect or the fact that it was book 2 in a series. But that didn't matter as I assume you can read both of them as SA. It Had to Be You is a sweet and relaxing read, it has humor, not so much angst and it was quite entertaining. Emma and Oliver are childhood friends turned frenemies who live to torment each other. Through a strange turn of events they end up pretending to be lone [...]

      THANK YOU NETGALLEY AND MELISSA KATE for a copy of It Had to be YouFunny, but need a little moreFYI-this is the first novel that I have read in this series.Writing: Melissa appears to be a witty author. She had some pretty clever quips in this novel. However, there were quite a few simple mistakes. 3rd person narration. 2 POV.Characters: Emma is a bakery owner harboring hurt from an ex-boyfriend and ex-best friend. The ex-best friend, Oliver is hiding a secret and has chosen a ‘carefree’ lif [...]

      This review is based on the ARC provided by the author and/or the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for a honest review.This story made me feel like i was reading a bunch of random events paste together. No solid plot. It felt like the author was trying to write a combination of romance, comedy, and crime that was just horribly executed. The characters were just dreadful. Emma was just so annoying and a flat unbelievable character. Oliver just had me rolling my eyes with his bs problems. The t [...]

      Oh my gosh, I have already found my second favorite book for 2017, and it's not even February yet! I am in love with this book.

Childhood friends until Oliver called it quits to begin his new profession as a lady magnet, they maintain their distance even while Oliver attempts to close the gap.

Since then he has become the town Casanova, following in the footsteps of his father who cheated on his mother all over town.

      Quick Summary: It Had To Be You by Melissa Kate was such a funny, down-to-earth love story. I loved it! What I Liked: The protagonists were extremely likable characters. They were independent, driven, loyal and strong in terms of their convictions. Conflict/Drama: Although they (Ollie & Emma) had been the best of friends in the past, a betrayal pulled them apart. This sweet romance told about their second chance.Another Thing: I really, really liked the supporting cast of characters. They we [...]

      Thanks to the publisher/Netgalley for providing me with an eARC. I loved this book! It was so sweet!! I love the characters of Oliver and Emma. It was a bit predictable and it felt a bit rushed, that's why I gave it 4 stars. I really enjoyed reading this book and I'm sad that's over. I will be reading more books by Melissa Kate!

    13. Adrienne Woods on said:

      I absolutely adore this book. Laughing out loud moments and rooting all the way for two main characters to get their crap together and just grab one another has never been this enjoyable before. I couldnt put it down.Well done Melissa.

      Lack of communication between two teenage best friends brings us to where this book begins and is the basis of the backstory.Oliver, now Chief of Police and Emma owner of the town bakery and sweet shop are thrown together by her best friend during the town bachelor auction. There's no love lost between Oliver and Emma after he suddenly stopped being friends with her in high school and began his man whore ways.Both of their parents had divorced for their own reasons which come to light in the sto [...]

      **Book provided by NetGalley**I thought this book sounded cute on NetGalley and would provide a light hearted read. I liked the cover and I liked the blurb-friends to lovers is something I always enjoy. The book is billed as standalone but is part of a series. I have to say that this book wasn't quite what I was looking for.The book opens with a bachelor auction-always fun, right? Our heroine loses out on who she wants and her friend bids on someone else for her-Oliver, also known as Emma's ex b [...]

      ‘It Had To Be You’ by Melissa Kate is the second in the Crystal Valley series but can be read as a standalone. This was a first read for by this author and would give it 3.5 stars.Emma Wyatt is a single bakery owner and is doing quite well having gotten over catching her boyfriend cheating on her. She is at the stage now that she is ready to move on but finds herself in a situation where she is paired with her ex-best friend from her childhood at a bachelor auction.Oliver has stayed away fro [...]

      Sweet quick read with likeable characters & lots of sugary goodness. I haven't read the first book in the series but I didn't feel like I'd missed out on anything in the story so this book can definitely be read as a standalone.Would definitely read more from this author

      It Had To Be You is an honest to goodness treat. Who doesn't love a steamy (not lewd) romance between the sexy tough guy/playboy and the beautiful town sweetheart? Once, childhood best friends until Oliver suddenly turned his back on Emma, the tale of Oliver and Emma is sweet, sultry, and every bit humorous! To be honest, I ate this book up in just a day! It's an easy read and I really just needed to see where Oliver and Emma's journey ended. Thank you Netgalley and Fire Quill Publishing for pro [...]

      I received an ARC of the book from Fire Quill Publishing via Netgalley in exchange for my honest review.It Had To Be You by Melissa Kate is a chick-lit novel, the second book in the Crystal Valley series. Although it is part of a series, it can be read alone. The protagonist of the novel, Emma Wyatt, is a successful woman who owns a bakery in the town of Crystal Valley. Her ex-childhood best friend, Oliver Kyle, enters into her life again unexpectedly through a bachelor auction. Someone places a [...]

      Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher who allowed me a free version of this book in exchange for an honest review!It Had To Be You contains many of the typical formulas. To begin with, we have the typical man vs. woman trope, of him being secretly in love with her & her having a strong distaste for him - this leads him to think of her as a 'challenge'. There's the whole fake relationship, which started out because of a jealous ex, and continued on because they didn't want to upset his mother [...]

      I'm being generous by giving this book 2 stars. It isn't a horrible book, but it is not a good book either. Please keep in mind that I am kind of a jerk.Let's imagine you created a game for writers where you print cards with every cliche storyline imaginable, then you force an author to blindly pick out 13 cards: Card #1: Childhood Best Friends Turned EnemiesCard #2: Trite Small Town Situations That Are Supposed To Be Funny But Aren'tCard #3: Spunky Old People Who Are Supposed To Be Funny But Ar [...]

      Emma Wyatt and Oliver Kyle were best friends growing up They were inseparable as children but somewhere along the way, they stopped talking to each other. Oliver pulled away from Emma and this led to Emma hating him There was no reason given as to why Oliver stopped talking to her and all of a sudden, he started turning out to be a manwhore- dating girls left and right. But of course there has to be a reason as to why Oliver pulled away right? Which we find out once we get to reading the book Th [...]

      This is the first book that I have read from this author. I received an ARC from netgalley. It appears to be the second in a series, but it works as a stand alone.Despite Oliver being two years older, he and Emma were best friends until shortly before her thirteenth birthday, Oliver pulled away and suddenly became another person. Emma was hurt and never knew why. Oliver has been keeping a secret from her ever since. Now grown up, Oliver is the police chief and Emma owns a confectionary shop. The [...]

      I was provided with an ARC in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts about this book are from my own head and heart :)A charming novel filled with witty banter and a fantastic, childhood friends to lovers story. I am a huge fan of snarky heroine's that can both dish it out and take it when it comes right back. I loved the premise of the story and the slow burn of Emma and Oliver's love story. I enjoyed the slight adrenaline rush of Oliver's work in the city; it kept the novel from being jus [...]

      I received an ARC of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.And I am so glad I did!This book had it all. A great h (Emma) who owns the towns bakery. A super sweet H (Oliver) who is a bad ass in the local police force, and lots of chemistry between them. I enjoy a book that gets me laughing, and this one did. I loved the geriatric ladies, I so wanna be like that when I am old:) It is set in a close nit town where everyone knows everyone and all of their business. I think my [...]

      ***This book was provided by netgalley for an ARC***The book is called "It Had to be You" by Melissa Kate it goes on sale on Apr 25th 2017.I loved this book for many reasons. It was a light, fast read that I was looking for plus I laughed out loud several times. The antics that the main characters get in to let alone the supporting characters make the book worth every word. The "geriatrics as the older people in the book are called have great personality and add an extra level of humor to the bo [...]
