Only in the movies does the Hollywood heartthrob fall for the small town diner waitress.

So when Dashiel Buckley returns to Cherry Tree Harbor for a wedding, I’m determined not to let my massive crush on my best friend’s older brother hijack my good sense.

(It happened once before. Do not recommend.)

But when my hand is injured, it’s Dash who steps in at the diner. The moment he realizes I can’t afford to fix my car, he takes care of it. And when he hears about the way my toxic ex treated me, he refuses to let it go.

Now it’s not just his blue eyes and sexy smile that have me swooning, it’s the way he wants to help me. Encourage me. Protect me.

I can’t resist.

Our text messages heat up. Our phone calls melt all my defenses. “Just friends” turns into “just once,” and “just once” becomes a distant memory. Night after night, he warms my bed, my body, and my heart.

But it can’t last.

Our dreams have us on two different paths–Dash wants the lights, camera, action of Hollywood, and I’ll always be a small town girl.

If only I could be his.

Sandra's Review

5 out of 5 stars

Small Town Swoon is the fourth book in the Cherry Tree Harbor series by the very talented, Melanie Harlow. You can read each book as standalone but I highly recommend reading the series. The Buckley men are swoon-y, sweet, protective, and full of surprises.

Dash needed to dig deep with his emotions to further his acting career and that first starts with going home. Then stripping down to his purest self (literally! Lol). He was headed home for his brother’s wedding so why not go early and be surrounded by the ones who know him best. What he didn’t expect was to want to spend so much time with the woman who hated him most. Or so he thought…

Ari has loved Dash since she was sixteen. After one humiliating night, she had tried to stay away from the famous actor. And now he was back and being all nice and $hit. He was showing over sides to him and she is here for it. Her walls are coming down but should they? After the wedding he was going back to LA and she was staying in Cherry Tree Harbor. Can they really go back to being friends after spending night after night in each other’s arms?

This might be my favorite of the series. I loved these two! The support they have for each other’s dreams is swoon-y in itself. Then add in their connection, it’s truly beautiful. I loved their journey!
