With THE EYES OF LOVE author Angelina Rose introduces you to a fun and emotional contemporary Mill Creek Crossing Romance series.
Sally Overby is having a bad time: she is tired of going to bed alone and not having a shoulder to lean on. After becoming widowed 5 years ago she wanted to feel safe: she completed college, became an attorney and continued to raise her young son, David. When she receives her invitation to attend her fifteen-year high school reunion, she wonders about the gorgeous guy she had a schoolgirl crush on. What has happened to Colin Dean? Has he married Stephanie, his high school sweetheart, had they broken up? Where is he now, would he be at the reunion?
Colin Dean has a successful Real Estate business in Mill Creek Crossing and really has his pick of women now he and Stephanie have divorced. Colin thinks his life is great just as it is now, until the day he finds Sally in Mill Creek Crossing when she returns to attend the reunion. Not only has he never met anyone so lovely, both inside and out, he realizes she has a few issues with opening her heart to love again. Soon, he is willing to move mountains to love and protect her, but will she let him?
Sally is wary to love deeply. Only, with every loving look Colin gives her plus every sweet kiss, as the attraction between them sparks, she can’t help but wonder if she’s met the one she should be with. And although Colin didn’t realize his life was going to change so quickly, amazingly, he isn’t the least bit interested in fighting that change. Instead, he’s gearing up for a different fight altogether. The one for Sally’s heart.

This is the fourth book in the Mill Creek Crossing series by Angelina Rose, but it was the first book I read by the author. Honestly, I didn't feel that I was missing anything at all by not reading the other books. I don't even know if they are full length novels or novellas, like this one. I can tell you that I would read this author again. The story starts with Sally Overton sitting at her desk in her Atlanta office, staring out the window contemplating her job as an attorney and how different is actually is than what she dreamed it would be as a young girl. Her best friend Taryn comes in to pass along some information concerning a case and through the conversation with her and some minor backstory we find out that she has been widowed for four years and has a seven year old son who is spending the summer with his paternal grandparents. As she is wrapping up her work to head home, Sally gets an email reminding her about her 15 year high school reunion in Mill Creek Crossing. Sally had a bad time in high school, but her one bright memory is of Colin Dean, the boy who's smile was almost literally her salvation. She decides to go, grabbing the opportunity to see him again. Back in Mill Creek Crossing, Colin Dean is standing in his new home, fresh divorce papers in hand, trying to figure out where exactly it all went wrong between him and his wife of 10 years. Not only did he lose his wife, but his best friend when he caught them in bed together. When he gets the email notification of the impending reunion, he knows that he has to go, otherwise his ex-wife and former best friend will feel like they have won. Now he just has to find a date, so no one feels sorry for him going alone. When all is said and done, this is the story about two people re-discovering each other and letting go of the past. Trust issues and self confidence play a large part in the story. The courtship is whirlwind, but the foundation was there, just waiting for the right time. I thought this was a cute, quick read. At around 70 pages on my reader, it didn't take long to finish. One of the problems that can sometimes occur with a novella is that the story feels rushed or that pieces are missing. I didn't find this to be the case for this story. It was a complete, if short story and was an enjoyable 3 stars on Goodreads.
4 STARS This is a short love story. I cheered for Sally. Loved Colin. Admired Camelia who apologized for her behavior 15 years ago in high school. Booed Stephanie and Jazz. This was a good story about a girl Sally who was bullied by most of her new high school led by Stephanie. Sally went on to become a lawyer and beautiful inside and out. Sally's fifteen year reunion is coming out. She decides to go back and show off and get a look at Colin. Colin was her one bright spot in high school. He was nice to her. Colin divorce from Stephanie is final. He wants to take a date to their reunion. When he meets Sally he does not recognize her but asks her out for coffee. This is story is well told even though it is short it gets everything it's need to across. I would love to go back and read the rest of her series about Mill Creek. I was given this ebook to read as part of the blog tour. I was asked in return to give honest review of it. Publisher: BookBaby; 1 edition (April 26, 2013) 70 pages ASIN: B00CRM1Q4I
