Meet the Author

Rachel Gibson lives in Idaho with her husband, three kids, two cats, and a dog of mysterious origin. She began her fiction career at age sixteen, when she ran her car into the side of a hill, retrieved the bumper, and drove to a parking lot, where she strategically scattered the car's broken glass all about. She told her parents she'd been the victim of a hit-and-run and they believed her. She's been making up stories ever since, although she gets paid better for them nowadays.

2.5/5 stars Having previously read and enjoyed Rachel's Run To You, I couldn't help but pick up this novella! Even though I haven't read Sadie and Vince's stories, Gibson does such a great job of making you feel as if you've known these characters for years. I also really enjoyed getting some of Sadie and Stella's point of views in this book! While this was a cute read and I enjoyed being in Lovett, I did have a few issues with this one. While I liked both characters well enough, I was bothered by the way things went down with Nate and Becca. It wasn't fair of Nate to knowingly put Becca in the position he did, even after she told him that she would not play that role. However, being so enamored with Becca, he found he couldn't help himself. He's attracted to the beautiful girl and he doesn't want to stay away from her like he knows he should. Becca is sweet and while she longs for someone of her own, she doesn't let that become a driving point in her life. She loves what she does for a living, so she is okay with not taking a trip down the aisle like her friend Sadie is about to. Becca is definitely attracted to Nate and he sends her some mixed signals in the beginning. While I know this is a novella, I felt things progressed way too fast for Becca and Nate. It's one thing to be attracted to one another and want one another- but to profess love after only one week? I was not a fan of that at all. I'm also not a big fan of cheating in books, so Nate didn't come across as a very good guy to me. I understand not wanting to break up with someone over the phone or via text, but if that person is NEVER around and you do find someone you're interested in, man up and do what has to be done. If I were Becca, it would have taken a lot more to forgive him, especially after she made it clear she didn't want to be that girl. Overall, while this one was cute, I don't think it was really anything memorable for me. I do want to go back and read the other books in the Lovett, Texas series, as well as check out some of Rachel's other books.

It was nice catching up with previous couple in this short novella, but I wish Nathan and Becca's story would have been longer.  The writing is great with lots of sweet, funny and sexy moments. The only thing that I did not like was that Nathan had a girlfriend when he started pursuing Becca. eARC via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review.

I fell in love with Nathan Parrish in When Daisy's Back in Town. He was a moody teenager not happy with moving to a new place then and now he's all grown up. I can't tell you how excited I was when I found out he was getting his own story. I would've loved to have read a full length novel about him, but I'm happy with this novella as opposed to just wondering about him. I liked Becca. She's fresh, determined to succeed, and a good friend. I loved her attitude towards life. She's also got a bubbly personality. I will admit to swooning, just like her, when she saw Nathan for the first time. I liked Nathan. He was easy going and someone who had a good head on his shoulders for the most part. Becca and Nathan had great chemistry. You could feel it and I loved it. It was attraction at first sight. Of course that's something known to strike Parrish men. My only issue with the story was that I didn't agree with some of Nathan's decisions even if I understood his rationale in handling things differently. He did end up causing problems for himself and others around him. I didn't like seeing and feeling the fall out of what happened. While I enjoyed reading the story, what Nathan did throw me. I would've never thought in a million years Nathan would hurt someone like he did. Especially since I know how and who he was raised by. I've read and absolutely loved the other books in this series. I'm glad to see everyone still going strong. Rachel Gibson has written a fine story with some surprises I don't think any of her readers saw coming. I do hope to read more about Becca and Nathan in the future.

The first I have read by this author, or of this series I was able to get a recap of earlier matches all wrapped up with a short and quick new match for Nathan and Becca. Rachel Gibson’s writing is clever and pithy, interactions are well written and quick introductions and backstory gives readers a sense of the characters that enhances their appearance. Not having known the story or characters, the business of the early half of the story made some of the comings and goings feel rushed, although their connections are present and palpable in their interactions. For his part, Nathan is trying to repair a ‘bad boy’ reputation, particularly with Becca. He lost a few points from me with his not quite ‘clearing his decks’ with the current girlfriend before moving on to pursue Becca. I will give back a point for actually ‘feeling bad’ about it – but the whole questionable decisions on his part is there and did give me pause. Overall though, for a novella, the quick romance between Becca and Nate and the other happy relationships, a wedding and a new baby. Their relationship developed and blossomed quickly, while I won’t say “too” quickly, I do wish we had more time with them as they formulated their bond. It was a fun read nonetheless, and I think those who have read this series from the beginning will adore this installment. I received an eArc copy of the title from the publisher via Edelweiss for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.

3 Stars! I have been a fan of Rachel Gibson for a long time and have read quite of a few of her works. When I saw that I had the opportunity to get my hands on an advanced copy of this novella, I jumped at the chance. I ended up enjoying this nice little story which should appeal to other fans of Rachel Gibson. There was a lot going on in this novella, maybe a little too much to be honest. Many of the characters from Gibson's previous books make and appearance in this short little story. One couple is busy having a wedding and another is busy having a baby. The new romance in this story is Nate and Becca. Becca is a local hairdresser who is doing the bride's hair for the wedding. Nate is Daisy and Jack's son from an earlier book, Daisy's Back in Town. I think the relationship between Nate and Becca seemed to move a bit quickly but I really enjoyed them on the page together. I thought they had a lot of chemistry and worked well as a couple . Any doubts that I had about Nate were erased by the end of the story. Gibson won me over with this ending but I would have loved to see their story expanded on a little more. It was really nice to see some of the characters from previous books in the Lovett, Texas series. I have read some of the books in the series but not all of them. I had no trouble following this story even though I missed some of the earlier books. I would recommend this book to fans of the Lovett, Texas series who are wanting to visit some of their favorite characters. This is a smartly written, nice little story that can easily be read in a single evening. I hope to get a chance to more from Rachel Gibson soon. I received a copy of this book from Avon Impulse via Edelweiss for the purpose of providing an honest review.

The denizens of Lovett, Texas return in this fun and flirty read with rapid-fire dialogue and a large cast of characters that almost overwhelm the story. Romance was never such fun as when the serious yet unlucky in love Becca meets bad boy mechanic Nate. Even as sparks fly there's a big obstacle between them that could end their relationship before it starts and readers are along for their rocky journey to HFN. Fans of this series will love seeing characters from past books as it lends a sense of family to the story but it takes time away from the burgeoning relationship between Nate and Becca that crackles with sexual tension. Whenever they're together the scenes are electric with witty dialogue that brings a smile to your face. The one sexual encounter we see is both steamy and playful and I longed to see more of them one-on-one as they're both entertaining characters. Nate was once a player but has slowly become a responsible man who tries to do the right thing with Becca but knows she's claimed his heart the moment he first sees her. Becca's an outgoing woman full of energy who has big plans for her future. She's been cheated on many times though but breaks many of her rules where Nate's concerned as he makes her feel alive. Unfortunately for her, one omission leads to hurt once again in a denouement that's quickly resolved with only a bit of groveling and charm on his part. This is a sweet and sensual story with fun dialogue that made for an entertaining read. Being a novella though hurt the overall story as too much was crammed into this short story to leave us feeling short-changed when it came to the main characters. While the inclusion of past characters added a folksy and sentimental feeling to the story it left little time to see Becca and Nate get closer together. Overall this is a signature Rachel Gibson book due to its sparkling characters and crackling dialogue and for that I enjoyed it. I wanted more though, more of Nate and Becca. Ultimately this was a good tale but not a great one. I still enjoy Ms. Gibson's works and look forward to her next book, hopefully one where we see more of Nate and Becca!

This was a cute short story about Becca and Nate. We got to see all of our friends from Lovett, too.

I am a HUGE fan of Ms Gibson and would purchase her books without hesitation. It is hard to believe she wrote this. There is no chemistry between the main characters and the ending leaves you feeling empty and a bit cheated. Like the author wasn't really interested in the story. Also, someone dropped the ball in editing, far too many errors for only about 55 pages in total.

I've read several in this series and love them but this was a huge disappointment. Barely any story....could've made this a really good addition to the series but I feel like the ball was dropped on this one.

As posted on The Smutty Kitty reviewed by KittyKelly 3 out of 5 Licks Before you read this book I’m going to recommend you read the other books in this series before reading this novella.  I thought this book was part of another series, but I was wrong!  Oops!  lol  The book was fun, but I know I would have enjoyed it so much more if I were better acquainted with the couples that were mentioned.  Becca and Nate were the only new couple in this book and their parts were not even half the book.  I’m not opposed to the fact that they fell in love with each other so fast, but they only really spoke to each other about three times before they fell in love and it didn’t seem like he did much, if any talking during that time.  Overall the other couples had some sweet, funny moments and I definitely want to read the other books in this series, but I thought the relationship between Nate and Becca felt a bit forced.
