First loves don't last, not like you think they will when you're in the beginning or middle of them. First loves are fun and painful, giving you the beauty and darkness of life in a single relationship, breaking your fantasies like a twig and making you realize that life is not all sunshine, sparkling fireflies, and rainbows. No, it's not pretty at all. First loves build you up, and just when you think that life can't get any better, they shatter into a million raindrops, making you see how life really works. First loves crush you, ruining you for anyone else.
That's what Ivy Lynn Abney and Henry Lee Rein have battled with since things ended between them about three years ago. Neither of them have spoken and are still hung up on what occurred. They both have regrets and the love they once had for each other never really went away. They were young and wanted different things. Have their wants changed enough to allow their love to reignite? Can first loves become second loves even with secrets?

Hot DAMMNNN! Henry Lee Rein is HOTT! This story was sweet, sassy, and steamy, all perfectly done. I LOVED all of the characters and how the storyline played out. I want to be someone's Firefly...correction, I want to be Henry's Firefly!
Hot Georgia Rein by Martha Sweeney 5 Stars Secrets, secrets and more secrets in this book. Whether it's the towns, the main characters, or the secondary characters it seems everyone has secrets they are holding on to. It just so happens that I love my books with secrets so I absolutely loved this book! This is my first book by this author and most definitely will not be my last. The flow was steady, and the build up of the reveals were spot on. I fell in love with Ivy and Henry, and there was enough information in the flashbacks without too many flashbacks. This is all about first loves and how they truly can be real, yet when they both want and expect different things out of life, decisions are made and the hurt stays with them no matter what life brings them. When circumstances bring them back face to face after a few years with no communication is their love still as strong and if so does it matter when most of the reasons for their break up haven't changed, and if so, can it now withstand all the secrets? This book was full of family, close supportive families. Ivy's mom was probably one of my favorite characters in this book, she even had me blushing a few times...the visit to the adult store and why cracked me up!! I see so many stories that could come from this book, I'm really hoping it turns into a series and I'll keep watch just in case. I highly recommend this book, I absolutely loved it!!

Ivy and Henry were high school sweethearts , but each of them wanted different things out of life . Henry had already set down roots and Ivy moved away from the small town she grew up in to venture the world or so she thought . They grew apart . Until fate tries to bring them back together , but when the small town gossip burns like Hot Georgia rain and secrets still remain between them . Can they rekindle what they once had ? This is a must read for any Romance Reader !! I love Martha's writing , every time I pick up one of her books . She's always changing it up and each one is harder to put down. I enjoyed reading about strong - willed Ivy and Sexy , outcast who doesn't have a clue ,Henry in this charming and emotionally heartwarming , small town second chance romance . Believe me , Ivy and Henry had loads of sexual chemistry that burned the pages and left me saying " Geez , Henry , just let her tell you the secret Already !! " lol Ivy's family tried to keep everything together and with a lot of humor . Which is what I really loved about this romance . Family and friends , they stood by each other ..no matter what ... Gossipy towns people be damned !
Hot Georgia Rein by Martha Sweeny was almost too HOT for adult consumption! The story is a stand alone, which is definitely a good thing as I don’t know too many people who could handle these characters for a serial. The story of Ivy and Henry is one that is years in the making, with them coming together after years apart as only friends. This added layer only made the story more real, and allowed myself as the reader to see a true friends to lovers read. Watching the sparks fly between these characters throughout the entire book made for great fun, as it was obvious that these two had heaps of issues that needed to be dealt with before they could either move on or move in deeper to each other. Sweeny makes her characters so relatable that her story was a breeze to read, and while Sweeny is a new to me author I will definitely be on the look out for more of her writing in the future. And it has to be said that the model that was chosen for this cover made this book well worth the price of admission! Pick up this book if you are looking for a great quick weekend read that will leave you with both angst and happiness all at the same time.
