Built to Last, Erin Hahn: A Review

I love a good romance, and lately I've been in my feels, so I was super excited to start Erin Hahn's latest Built to Last.

From the publisher via Goodreads: Shelby Springfield has spent the last ten years trying to overcome her past, sanding it away like she does the rough spots on the vintage furniture finds she makes over. But as a former child star, it’s hard to forget a mediocre pop career, a meltdown widely documented by the paparazzi, and a huge public break with her former co-star Lyle Jessup. It’s also hard to forget her other co-star and childhood sweetheart, Cameron Riggs -- the one who got away.

Anytime Shelby has called, Cameron has come running… And then he runs right off again to chase stories around the world by making documentaries, too scared to admit what he really wants. But when Lyle stirs the pot, getting the two back in the spotlight with a home renovation show, Cameron can't help but come on board.

I thoroughly enjoyed this read. Shelby and Cameron are delightful characters, well-developed and entertaining voices. I loved the premise and the execution of the renovation show and didn't find the tropes to be too over the top or stereotypical. Fun, witty, and a little bit spicy, Built to Last is an immediate add to cart.

Big thanks to St. Martins and NetGalley for providing an eARC in exchange for honest review consideration.
