A sexy, small town, opposites attract rom com!
He wears suits and ties. He’ll one day inherit a fortune. He has a law degree. He shines his shoes, for God’s sake. What is she doing attracted to a guy like him? But she is. She so is.
She drives air boats on the bayou, drinks and cusses, and gives city boys in suits a hard time just for fun. Why can’t he get her out of his mind? But he can’t. He definitely can’t.
A weekend trip to Savannah for a fancy-schmancy party with his highfalutin family is the surefire way to prove that they have nothing in common but intense chemistry. And to maybe scratch this I’ve-never-wanted-anyone-like-I-want-you itch once or twice. Or five times.
But it takes only about 24 hours for the bayou girl and the city boy to figure out that they don’t really know much at all – about each other, or about themselves. And figuring all of this out is going to be downright crazy.
Point of view:
3rd person. Alternating by Bennett & Kennedy’s perspectives.
I like this, I just didn’t love it. I think my expectations for Bennett & Kennedy were just too high. They had this flirty annoy each other thing going, but Kennedy’s sniping side character didn’t quite work as well for me when she was front & center for so much of it. There was a lot of humorous banter and I liked Kennedy’s convos with the Baxter guests.
I did like her & Bennett together, but missed the Bayou setting. Almost the entire book is 3 days in Georgia and I would have like more of them getting to know each other. The sex was there (oh boy was it there!) but I just wanted a little more when it came to feeling they really have a chance outside the bedroom… or shower.
I liked Jamie Renell & Betsy Moore’s narration. Moore’s higher pitched voice wasn’t what I had imagined Kennedy would sound like – but it ended up working for me.
Unfortunately, there were several times in the book where the wrong narrator was performing a section. Renell reading what was obviously Kennedy’s POV and Moore doing Bennett’s. It really pulled me out of the story.
About the author:
Erin Nicholas: I’ve been reading romance since my mom first let me into her book cupboard when I was about fourteen. LaVyrle Spencer, Julie Garwood, Debbie Macomber… they took my ‘happily ever after’ ideas from animated princesses to real people in the real world.
I’ve been writing romance almost as long. Many a family car trip was spent with my head bent over a spiral notebook in the back seat. I’ll confess that my very first attempts at fiction were fantasy and paranormals, influenced by my father’s love of the Lord of the Rings, The Chronicles of Narnia, and the original Alice in Wonderland. If Harry Potter had been around, I’m sure he would have been on the bedtime story shelf as well.
But it wasn’t long until I started writing about true love and that’s where I’ve been ever since.
I’m so thrilled to be able to share these stories with you! I hope that they make you smile, sigh, maybe even choke up a little. Most of all, I hope that they help you believe in magical things like first kisses, the spark of passion, and the power of true love.
