BUILT TO LAST is a spirited story of a second chance romance bursting with first-class brass! Actors Cameron Riggs, Lyle Jessup and Shelby Springfield had a hit TV show as teenagers. They had chemistry, pizzazz and a whole lot more. Then, fame, friends, lovers and even your own mother, as is the case with Shelby, tarnishes your image. Shelby’s eager to fix her disorderly life, leaves the limelight and hurries home to her dad’s house. She relishes her time spent working along side her father, fixing up old homes and rehabbing furniture. She is very content until former, famous ex, Lyle, comes knocking on her door with a request to star in a reality show. Does Shelby accept?
When, extremely handsome Cameron reunites with stunning Shelby sizzling sparks fly between them. Shelby always loved Cameron. But, now as an adult, he is hotness overload! On the set of the home renovation show, lover boy, Lyle, is scheming between the two of them causing conflicts and confusion. Will the show go on? Is Shelby and Cameron’s love for each other too hot to handle?
BUILT TO LAST is a fantastic story about unrequited love and a serendipitous chance at romance again. I was blown away by the author’s provocative plot involving child actors, seduction, difficult situations, and the slow-burn romance. There are many unique characters in Ms. Hahn’s new novel. I enjoyed learning about the pasts of Cameron and Shelby, what shaped them and how they handle their present situations. The author makes it work beautifully. BUILT TO LAST is speedy, sassy and saucy.
