My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars
My first book from this author and lots of promise shown in a very solid romance with plenty of feels.
There’s a really quirky meet/cute in this which had me smiling and that just carried on throughout the book as Carter and Tanner fell in love.
There’s not much angst, my only criticism – and it’s a small one – is that the set-up for the “bad guy” was a tad abrupt. Especially considering, as I’d figured, he’s going to be one of the MCs in the second book in the series.
Him behaving like a jerk came out of left field, wasn’t really given a lot of focus in the narrative and then suddenly was resolved with an apology that also came out of nowhere. I think a little bit more time given to this element of the plot and I’d have been looking at another star on this rating.
Apart from that though, I liked the small town vibe, I liked the communication between Carter and Tanner, I liked the romance, the sex was a mix of on page and off, sometimes sweet, sometimes steamy.
There’s also a nice bunch of secondary characters and a cute baby and a dog so it ticks a lot of those boxes!
