By Book Gannet TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 22 Mar. 2017
Format: Kindle Edition
This book fell into two fairly distinct halves for me. The first half was sexy and enjoyable, with a hint of antagonism thrown in to keep things interesting, the second half was loaded down with so much family drama that it left me wondering why anyone cared about that stupid place.

Dinah confused me a bit. At first I was wholly on her side, ready to support her through her troubles, but her family is awful and I honestly cannot see what it is about Gallagher’s that she finds so special. The family has history there, sure, but what does she actually do all day? None of the family seems to actually interact with the staff in the taproom, or even spend time down there or do anything remotely connected to the business. It is basically just a building – which might as well be an office – and I couldn’t feel the connection she claimed she had with the place.

Carter is different. I totally understood why he wanted to protect what he had built, and not just because it was his last tangible link to his grandmother and family property. The idea of buying the place to pave it over was ridiculous from the start. Not to mention soulless.

I liked Carter and Dinah together. They have great chemistry, although it was a shame that so much of the foundations of their relationship happened in those emails that we don’t get to see anything of. They clearly have a lot in common, even if their methods and outlooks on life are so different. It's just a shame that the sexy fun side of their relationship fades away to be replaced by arguments and business-related struggles.

The relentless family drama got a bit wearing too, as did Carter’s pessimism. Dinah is working so hard to please so many people and no one is giving her a hand.

3 - "This land is mine and I ain’t selling." Stars.

Nicole Helm begins her new Gallagher & Ivy series with a couple that are literally on opposite sides of the fence.

Problem being with that is Dinah Gallagher wants to knock down the fence, as well as the house and smallholding that Carter Trask has lovingly restored since he took over his grandmothers property.

"Just because you have breasts doesn’t mean I’m more inclined to talk to you."

Finding out that Dinah has plans to level it and turn it into a Farmers Market as you would expect isn't an idea he is onboard with... Even when it turns out she is the elusive D he has been sexy mailing with for the past eight months.

The blurb for this one pulled me in, as I am a sucker for a relationship that involves a lot of texting or emailing, but sadly it didn't really play much of a part of the story, what did play a huge part and which really dulled my enjoyment was the massive overdose of Gallagher family drama. I started out empathizing with Dinah, but as the story progressed she came to be a character that I felt little sympathy for.

Every word that had been amazing and beautiful still managed to pale in comparison to the reality of his mouth on hers...

I think it’s safe to say that as a reader this was a story that had potential, but the aspects of it I wanted to see more of were sorely lacking, I am not a huge fan of erroneous family drama, especially when it takes over a story-line and pushes a couples blossoming relationship into the background, and for me that was the case on this occasion.

If you like a lot of secondary drama with your romance then I would certainly not discourage you from giving this title a go, it just didn’t live up to the expectations I had of it from the blurb.

5.0 out of 5 stars More urban farming romance, please! 21 Mar. 2017
By Molly - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book was fantastic. I think Romancelandia needs more stories about urban farming, and revitalizing neighborhoods in cities that have seen better days.

As a resident of a Rust Belt city, I was so thrilled to see a story set in a city that isn't super popular in romance novels: St. Louis. It's not as cool as New York, and there wasn't a billionaire in sight. Hallelujah!

This was a story about two people trying the best they can, with lots of fun steamy times in between. What Nicole Helm did in this story is something that she has done so well in all her other books: she writes imperfect characters trying to get by, with challenges and situations readers can relate to on a personal level. Yeah, relationships of all types are hard and families can be hard to deal with. But it's how her characters handle these situations to get their shot at love is what's so great. My heart-strings were tugged! You've got to do what's right for you, and not for the expectations or your family may have placed on you.

And Helm's writing is really a cut above the rest. The phrasing, the description, the metaphors, they're all great. She's really one of my favorite writers.

I also really like Kayla's character and am really excited for her story!

5.0 out of 5 stars I knew I would love it. That little risk turned out to be ... 21 Mar. 2017
By Love at 1st Read - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
At first I was hesitant about trying a new-to-me-author. Why not stick with the tried and true authors, right? But I decided to take a chance with the start of Nicole Helm’s Gallagher and Ivy series. Before I finished the first chapter, I knew I would love it. That little risk turned out to be oh, so right.

Dina Gallagher’s life was going nothing like she’d planned. Not work or her love life. She’d spent her whole life busting her butt to prove her worth to her family business, her legacy. And for the past 8 months, her love life had consisted of emails with her mystery boyfriend, C. He was the hottest sex she’d ever had, even if it was via computer. They didn’t trade pictures or any personal info that would identify them. Just pure, harmless, sexy words. C wrote like poetry. They traded elaborate sexual fantasies but he always ended the exchange with something sweet and romantic. And as for Dinah, D could say things she’d be too afraid to say in real life. On-line there was no embarrassment or fear of rejection. At first, it had just been sex-mailing, but the last few weeks it had seemed to become more real. In spite of their exchanges being fantasy, there’d been some truthfulness there too. It seemed easy to confide in someone you’d never know.
Carter Trask was barely holding on to his legacy. His family had a history of selling out rather than fighting for their land. Sure, the money had been good, but he’d spent his life moving from one place to the next, only to have it sold. He’d inherited his grandmother’s little house in the city and had turned it into something he was proud of, Front Yard Farm. Now the Gallagher’s wanted his land for their own business venture. The Gallagher’s were rolling in money, and people with money always managed to get what they wanted. People like him were trampled in the name of progress. Well, not this time. Carter was standing his ground.
Gallagher’s wanted the little farm near their restaurant and Dina was in charge of securing the deal. But when Dina approached Front Yard Farm, she realized the place looked very familiar. This was the same place mystery man C had dubbed his “little slice of heaven” in their exchanges. Was C Carter Trask? When Dina confronted Carter, he was shocked to discover the gorgeous woman before him, the one he’d been having e-mail sex with, was a Gallagher. She wanted his farm. The last piece of himself. No matter how beautiful she was, this could not change anything. But as Carter and Dina stared at each other, remembering all they’d said and done, neither wanted to lose that fantasy. “What if we pretended the real us didn’t exist and lived out the fantasy us? Just this once.” So they attempted to keep reality and fantasy separate. During the day, they were Carter and Dina, but at night C and D were there acting out all the fantasies they’d written. Carter thought Dina was the sexiest woman he’d ever known. She was adventurous, smart, and mischievous. She was the perfect mix of everything. He felt like he belonged with her. A feeling he’d never had before. Dina thought Carter was charming. He made her feel special. She’d never been like this with a man before. It was easy to let her guard down with Carter and just be. The more they were together, the harder it was to remember they were enemies battling for a piece of land. Soon fantasy and reality began to blur and reality was a lot more complicated than the fantasy had been.

When I first read the blurb and intro to this book, I thought it would be heavy on the sexy and light on the plot. I was so wrong. While it was an extremely sexy read, it was so much more. The perfect blend of sexy and self-discovery. With its poignant character histories, rich humor, and captivating plot, this story was an exceptional read. There was so much to love about these characters. Yes, their chemistry sizzled and the erotic aspect was intense, but they also were just really likeable, relatable characters. I loved Carter’s honesty, the way he genuinely laid his feelings on the line. I loved Dina’s energy, devotion, and passion. It took her a while but she finally figured out what she wanted most in life. The secondary characters, especially Kayla, were equally strong and intriguing. I look forward to reading more of the Gallagher family. I voluntarily reviewed an advanced readers copy of this book.
2.0 out of 5 stars Overall, I felt there were just too many crucial elements to this book lacking making it very difficult to fully enjoy. 25 April 2017
By D - Guilty Pleasures BR - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
The synopsis for this book caught my attention and I decided to give this new to me author a try and while I enjoyed some aspects of this book, others left me feeling a little flat, and some just left me confused. On opposite sides of a business deal two people figure out they have something a bit taboo and dirty in common and despite the business between them set off to fulfill their wicked fantasies. Heavy on sexual exploits (which hey, I’m totally cool with), but light on building a relationship (not too cool with), and heavy on angst (really, really not cool with) So Wrong It Must Be Right had good bones, but not enough substance making it a bit of a disappointment.

Dinah and Carter have been having an email sexual affair for 8 months and have no clue they live in the same general area, but when Dinah must confront Carter to buy his land to expand her family’s businesses she puts it together and confronts him about it which leads to them becoming sexually involved and eventually more. First off, I have no issues with the fact these two met based on a Tumblr photo and moved on to sexy emails which by the way, maybe I’m a bit slow but I still can’t figure out how they managed to reach mutual self satisfaction while emailing back and forth. Anyway, I like that they met in an unusual way and were thrown together in the flesh so to speak for a totally different reason, but I had a very hard time really liking either one of these characters and I felt like they got to the “I Love You” stage very quickly considering the only thing they’d been exchanging in the last 8 months was sexual fantasies, not getting to know you information and within a few weeks of meeting one another they were in love.

Let me just say that Dinah was stubborn, shallow and a bit too confident considering she really had no power in her family’s business and was willing to do anything to get some power. I admired her gumption, but I hated that she would ask for someone’s opinion or help and then immediately dismiss it. I appreciated what Carter had built and the reasoning behind it and that he felt strongly about staying connected to something that had belonged to his family for generations, but at times he was whiney and so pessimistic that I wanted to give him a slap upside the head. Together there was no denying their chemistry or the fact they knew exactly how to give each other what they wanted or needed sexually, but I felt the emotional connection was lacking. They’d share a bit about their lives but they never delved deep into how they were feeling with what was happening around them.

There wasn’t a single secondary character that I liked, not one. While at first I liked Dinah’s cousin, Kayla she turned into a bit of a selfish b*tch and I have nothing good to say about the others. I also felt like the big ultimatum Dinah’s grandmother gave her was contrived to create more drama between Dinah and Carter something I could have done without.

Overall, I felt there were just too many crucial elements to this book lacking making it very difficult to fully enjoy.

3.0 out of 5 stars Urban Farmer = HOT! 21 Mar. 2017
By Cheri - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This book started out fast. I guess I expected to see more of the back and forth of email and messaging online before Dinah and Carter realized they knew each other in real life. Nope, and that’s okay. Since we see the connection they have through their online romance and know they’ve been “talking” for 8 months it all flows quite naturally. I could feel the chemistry between the hero and heroine and that’s what matters most.

I kept feeling as though I didn’t like Dinah, yet couldn’t really not like her. It was very confusing to me until Carter had some inner reflections of how she tries to hide how much of an emotional person she really is under her business-like demeanor. Dinah still annoyed me with the way she was so blind to anything outside of her tunnel vision of family and Gallaghers and being born to do a specific thing with her life, no deviations. There are some inner thoughts Dinah has toward the end that also really helped me to understand her bull-headed visions.

Carter was bull-headed in his own way. I don’t know if I forgave him that because I happened to agree with his side of things more or if he wasn’t as grating as Dinah. His back story seemed a bit muddled and hodge-podged together but became a bit more cohesive toward the end of the book. He is definitely easy to love. The way he treats Dinah, even knowing she may have to turn against him, is so sweet and makes him extremely sexy.

My favorite character is actually Dinah’s cousin, Kayla. She seems to be the most level-headed Gallagher and even tries to open Dinah’s eyes numerous times. The way Dinah somewhat dismisses her broke my heart. She is so set on her goals she can’t see she is hurting Kayla and even that her goals should maybe change. Kayla is almost the opposite of Dinah. Her eyes are wide open and she knows how to look inside herself for what it is she truly wants and needs. Plus, it seems to me that Dinah was so focused on what her own dad did to the family that it didn’t occur to her that Kayla’s mom did it, too. Plus, Kayla had to still deal with her evil father after it all happened.

Nicole Helm is a new to me author. While I wasn’t totally blown away by this book, I did really enjoy it a lot. I’ll definitely be giving more of her books a try.

The relentless family drama got a bit wearing too, as did Carter’s pessimism. Dinah is working so hard to please so many people and no one is giving her a hand. There were times when I really wondered how this was going to work out, and although the ending does find a solution, I have to admit it seems shaky to me, definitely more of a happy for now rather than forever.

So overall this was a bit mixed. It started strong but sank a little beneath the weight of drama, and I didn’t particularly like any of the secondary characters. I like this author, but I’m not convinced I want to continue with this series.
