From the moment I bump into him at the coffee shop, I know I am in trouble. The way he looks at me – confident as though he’s won me over already – tells me he’s unlike any other guy.
Lawrence isn’t a boy, he’s a man. And he’s pursuing me relentlessly.
During one whirlwind night together, he makes me feel things I never thought possible; shows me passion I’ve never known before. Could he be the one, or is our love doomed to fail like all the others who came before? You see, guys tend to run once they find out who I am…
Lauren is mine from the moment I first spotted her, she just doesn’t know it yet. When I put my mind to something – whether in business or in my personal life- I’m the sort of guy who follows through, normally.
I vow to woo Lauren, to convince her she’s the shining beacon that’s been missing in my world, when an unforeseen revelation ruins everything. Once I find out her last name, it opens up a world of complications. I’m in business with her father and he isn’t going to take kindly to our affair.
If I want a chance to claim her, just how much am I willing to give up – personally as well as professionally?

BlueSeal’s Review of Fireworks by L. Moone
Fireworks is the first installment of the three-book series – Coffee Shop Girls – by L. Moone. I was drawn to this series because they were stories of body-positive, curvey women. You see, I am that demographic and love to read stories that I can relate to. I was not prepared for this new thing called “instalove.” According to Urbandictionary.com, instalove is “when someone who just meets you thinks that you are their soul mate and they want to spend the rest of their lives with you and have kids with you.” I guess this is not really a new thing since this definition if from 2011. How have I missed this term? Instalust is one thing but instalove, I’m not sure that I am going to like instalove in a book. You see, I REALLY like seeing a relationship blossom and grow into love. Grab your iced tea (you might want to make it a Long Island) and let’s chat about Fireworks by L. Moone and this topic of instalove.
Lawrence is a real man not like the boys that Lauren has been dating. He has tan skin with salt and pepper hair and a few crinkles in the corner of his eyes but maturity, like a fine whiskey, has only made him more delicious. He is forward and mouthy. He knows what he wants and after one look at Lauren, Lawrence wants Lauren not just for a quick taste. She is the woman of his dreams.
Since finishing her design degree, all Lauren has dreamed about and worked for is opening her own storefront featuring her very own designs. She is determined to prove that she is more than her father’s last name. Lauren is not prepared for the man who tried to steal her coffee at the shop around the corner from her store. He takes her breath away and twists her stomach in knots but its easy being with him and feels strangely like home.
I have to be honest…right? Even though I prefer a longer book with a romance that develops, I ended up really enjoying this novella. L. Moone has worked hard to develop the characters so that nothing feels missing in this quick read. Lawrence is drool-worthy and I love the sassy Lauren. My rating for Fireworks by L. Moone 4 out of 5 propellers!!
I really look forward to reading the rest of the series. Check on March 27th for my review of Illicit (book 2) and on April 3rd for Beauty (book 3) of the Coffee Girls Series!

ABOUT L. MOONE
Realistic characters, pure emotions, true passion. Everything I write is about the characters: how they interact, what’s going on in their heads, how the passionate relationship develops and affects them. I don’t believe in keeping things hidden, or dressing them up just for show. Some of my characters are potty-mouths, most of them are less than perfect (yes, even physically). I aim to write a happy ending for all of them, without keeping anything behind closed doors.
