Review originally posted at Romancing the Book
While a cute read it was a little too slapstick for me and was very often jumpy that I had to turn back and see if I skipped a page. Some of the characters were way over the top especially Booker, Estelle and Teddy Gomez. Hollee and Kaiden were total opposites not only because one was from the South and the other the North. Nevertheless, regardless of their differences, they had instant chemistry but both held back due to things that had happened in their past which took a long time to be revealed. When they did connect it was oh so good and as hot and steamy as it was down South but then one would ultimately run. Hollee many times operated outside of her comfort zone and proved that she could.
The townspeople did everything they could to get Kaiden to leave their small town as quickly as possible. There was a small town atmosphere where everyone knew everyone else’s business – good or bad. It was heartwarming to see how they oftentimes pulled together no matter what their belief to help one another but not any of the outsiders. There were friends, townspeople, angst, tears, sorrow, secrets, happiness, romance and love. There was nice closure with the one year later epilogue that tied up the loose ends and that sealed the unexpected happily ever after.
Lee is a new to me author and I will give some of her other books a try hoping for a more novel approach rather than a romantic comedy.
Favorite Quote: Before he reached her, he withdrew a single rose and set the rest on the counter. Hollee’s breath hitched. Now why had he done that? She didn’t know if she wanted the answer, though she was fairly certain she was about to find out anyway.
