REVIEW: Christopher Marland and Eliza Ellicott were a couple when Eliza was a teenager but interference from her parents broke them apart. Years later a chance meeting brings all those old feelings to the forefront. Chris is now a divorced man with two teenage children, but he has never forgotten his first love. Eliza is living her dream of owning her own boutique. Even though coming face to face with Chris after all these years stirs up old feelings, Eliza has no desire to get involved with him again. Getting her heart broken once was painful enough. It took her years to get over it. Or did she? Steering clear of Christopher Marland was the best advice she could ever give herself. Eliza knew she would never survive a second broken heart.

Chris is the president of the San Diego chapter of Millionaire Moguls. He is also a very successful architect who has designed buildings all over the world. His life is full except in one area; personal relationships. Eliza always wanted to be an entrepreneur and run her own boutique. Ellicott’s is very successful even though it has only been open for a few months. Eliza hasn’t had a lasting relationship in the last decade due to her lingering feelings for a certain architect.

This is a delightful story of second chance love. Chris and Eliza find their way back to each other after fourteen years apart. These two finally get the future they were meant to have. Sometimes first love is last love.  Kianna Alexander has written a very easy, enjoyable read. The characters are likeable and believable. There are no hiccups along the way. The pacing is moderate and easy to follow. The mystery surrounding the vandalism at the Prescott George office, aka Millionaire Moguls, is resolved with surprising results. Other than that there is very little drama in this sweet read.
 
A SAN DIEGO ROMANCE is the third entry into the San Diego Millionaire Moguls series, but it can certainly stand on its own. It’s a good story and I totally recommend it. To familiarize yourself with the series I suggest you read the first two stories; HIS SAN DIEGO SWEETHEART, and SEDUCED IN SAN DIEGO.
