They pledged not to love anyone until it was the real thing.
So what happens when two people terrified of falling head-over-heels, actually do?
Keaton Nash is a small town veterinarian. Presley is a city wanderer. He takes care of his family. She is the black sheep of hers. He loved math in high school. She enjoyed ditching school to make dreamcatchers. He had plans. She had yoga pants.
Keaton did not expect her. Of course he knew there was a new woman in town. A granddaughter who was helping Hattie, the owner of the bookstore slash post office but he was not expecting her. A beautiful redhead who made him laugh at first word. One who made him fumble. He did not fumble. Ever. He hasn’t dated anyone in two years and was doing just fine. Until now. He had to ask her out even if he made a mess of things. There was just something about her that made him want to toss his predictable ways.
Presley was so embarrassed. Her grandma could have warned her the town Vet was this hot. He was also adorable. The way he had finally asked her out days later was the cutest thing ever. But, he deserved more. She wasn’t even sure if she was going to be staying in town. He seemed like the kind of man who wanted a wife at home, two point five children, and a picket fence. She was not that girl. She was the complete opposite of that girl. He had a tight knit family while hers was anything but. Then something happened between them…
Now, I can’t tell you exactly what but I can say it was sweet, smooth, and a start to something. I will say that I loved them. Keaton really is freaking adorable and confident at the same time. He also has other sides to him that only Presley could get him to show. And Presley, she is more than she believes. She is a flight or fight kind of girl. She has to decide where she belongs. In a small town or a big city.
Overall…it’s a sweet, sexy, and adorable story full of love, family, animals, yoga, and bad decisions. The best kind. I can’t wait for the next book! There is a sneak peak at the end of the book. If you follow my reviews you know I don’t read the synopsis if I have read the author’s work so I didn’t go there but I know it’s going to be an emotional ride.
“I’m a vet in small-town Pennsylvania. If I walked around here asking everyone to call me Dr. Nash, they’d think I was a stuck-up prick.”
“I won’t tell you how many times I’ve had to loosen my belt on the afternoons I eat there.” And now I’m telling her about unbuckling my pants. Great. I have absolutely zero game.
“Your body … it was made for me to touch.”
Ten years. He has been avoiding his high school sweetheart for ten years. Every time he saw her, it was torture. He wanted to reach out to her. Touch her. Kiss her. Love her. But he couldn’t. He had to walk away after their accident. The one that almost killed her and did kill his baseball career. He has coped with the fact that he lost his chances at the major leagues but he could never forgive himself for that night. He moved on with his life in everything else except when it came to love. He had a successful business, owned a home, had his family. But, she was the only one he has ever loved. Maybe ever will. Is it time to stop avoiding her? Ten years was a long time to hold it all in.
Lily never had closure. They were in love one minute and the next he was gone. Literally. He left town. She didn’t understand the looks he gave her when she did happen to see him around town. Why did he seem to hate her so much? She couldn’t stand it. She didn’t know how much more she could take. His brother was now with her best friend. They had to be around each other. The tension was thick. Every one in town felt it. And they were waiting for it to explode. Who will break first?
I absolutely LOVED this book! I love Keaton Nash, I really do but Bowen has stolen my heart! He might have been a cocky teenager but he was also a swoon-worthy one even back then. And now he is all man. And Lily! Oh…Lily. Watching her go through some shit made me want to give her a high five and a hug. She is stronger than she thinks. Together, I loved these two! They have their obstacles and it’s beautiful to watch them jump through them.
Overall…I am so in love with this series. I. Can. Not. Wait for the next book! I have a feeling I know who is up next and hot damn, it’s going to be hot. Oh, this one was too by the way. Along with sweet and funny.
“I’ll say it for the thousandth time, but I hope you hear me. I don’t know what it is I did to make you hate me so much, but I’m sorry.”
The night of the crash haunts me in my dreams. It plagues my every waking moment and mocks the future I once had.
“I may not have stepped foot in here in ages, but I’ve had many fantasies about getting you between these stacks. There is something so naughty about making out in a library.”
Forrest and Penelope can’t be in the same room without pissing the other off. But as of late, they also can’t keep their hands off each other in private. She doesn’t know if she wants to slap him or rip his clothes off when he walks into the room with his Cody swagger. Especially when he wears his glasses. He is definitely geeky hot! She is a single widow of three. He doesn’t want a wife, kids, and a picket fence. She is too busy too date but he gives he exactly what she needs to relax. Orgasms! Lots and lots of orgasms so why not have a no-strings attached relationship? Nobody would expect it. He is six years her junior. Their banter is full of hate. What could go wrong?
Everything! And I loved it all. Forrest is an introvert. He doesn’t have a filter. She doesn’t either and they are both dirty birds. But for real. I love watching Forrest open up when he is around Penelope. His family underestimated him and the town as well. He isn’t just a cocky asshole who only cares for himself. He is a twenty-something with heart. He even shocks himself when it comes to Penelope and her kids. I loved that. And I love Penelope for being a strong woman who is raising her kids, working her ass off, and doing the best she can. Together, their passion is explosive. Their banter is flirty, fun, and sarcastic.
Overall…it’s my favorite of the series! There was just something about this couple that got me. It was more emotional then I thought it would be. I fell hard. That’s for sure. The writing is amazing along with the story and characters. I can’t wait for the next book. It’s taunting me on my iPad but I can’t get to it just yet.
P.S. It was nice to see the name Marion is a book. That was my Grandma’s name.
“In your dreams, Little Nash.” I throw out the insulting nickname and walk off without a backward glance.
“You’re right. I do dream about it, P. A lot.”
“Penelope, come on. Don’t overreact. It wasn’t personal.”
“Nothing is to you, Forrest,” she fires back.
“Oh, I’ll work you out good. You haven’t been to the gym of Forrest in weeks, and I have a lot of new moves to show you.”
“God, you’re cheesy. But show me the moves.” I tingle everywhere with anticipation.
Fletcher knew she was trouble. Ryan knew just he was too. They sensed it the first time they met years ago. That was exactly why when she was in town over a few weekends here and there they stayed away. But now…there was nowhere to run. Ryan needed to refresh her batteries after a bad breakup and a loss of career passion. Fawn Hill where her best friend found her passion, love, family, and friends was her best shot before she moved on to bigger places. It was just a pit stop. That’s what she thought anyway.
Fletcher has been sober for five years. And it’s been just as long since he has been with a woman. He didn’t date to date. He didn’t want to go down that path until he knew he found the girl he wanted to be with forever. He didn’t know if he could handle a broken heart. What he did know was if it was going to be anyone it was going to be Ryan Shea. They have been tip-toeing around their attraction for years and now she was here. At least for the summer. He knew he shouldn’t go there. She told him she has sworn off men and he told her he wasn’t the casual type. Not anymore. But what happens when the attraction is so great and they truly see the other when others don’t?
This book! This is what happens! My God…it is so good! I have been waiting for these two to get their heads out of their asses as the Nash Brothers would say for as long as they met. The build up is epic. Their story is explosive. I loved it all. The demons and all because without those they would be them.
Overall…Amazing! All of it. The characters. The story. The passion. The demons. The family. The love. The friendships. Loved it all. I hope to see them all again. Maybe a little YA with the youngsters. Hey! It could happen.
P.S. Carrie — That last line? Damn.
“Now, let me sleep. I’m an old woman, and if this isn’t a booty call, talking to anyone this late isn’t worth losing beauty rest.”
“This place really is something right out of Gilmore Girls,” I tell her, sipping my lemonade the minute it’s set down on the table.
“I’ve fantasized about you.”
He cocks an eyebrow. “I’d like to hear all of those, in vivid detail. But for now, I want to live up to them.”
Author of romance novels such as The Tenth Girl and Privileged, Carrie Aarons writes books that are just as swoon-worthy as they are sarcastic. A former journalist, she prefers the love stories of her imagination, and the athleisure dress code, much better.
When she isn’t writing, Carrie is busy binging reality TV, having a love/hate relationship with cardio, and trying not to burn dinner. She’s a Jersey girl living in Texas with her husband, daughter, son and Great Dane/Lab rescue.
