In the tradition of New York Times bestselling authors Kristan Higgins, Jill Shalvis, and Marina Adair, comes the first in a new series by Lia Riley about two city sisters finding love in a small town.

The most romantic place she never wanted to be . . .

Pepper Knight moved to Everland, Georgia, as step one in her plan for a successful legal career. But after this big-city gal’s plans go awry, going home with her tail between her legs isn’t an option. So when the town vet—
and her sexy new neighbor—offers Pepper a temporary dog-walking job, she jumps at the chance. No one needs to know that man’s best friend is her worst nightmare . . . or that Everland’s hot animal whisperer leaves her panting.

The last thing Rhett Valentine wants is to be the center of small-town gossip. After his first love left him at the altar, he’s been there, done that. These days, life is simple, just the way he likes it. But sultry southern nights get complicated once sparks fly between him and the knockout next door. When she proposes a sexy, secret fling—all the deliciousness and none of the prying neighbors – it seems too good to be true. And it is. Because Pepper’s determined to leave Love Street, and when she goes, she just might take his heart with her . . .

Favorite Quotes:

 

Whoever said money can’t buy happiness must have been poor, honey. Never ever forget that.

 

Hand to chest, this computer upgrade is making me crazier than a one-legged cat in a sandbox.

 

The placards on either side of the entrance read TWO BEERS FOR THE PRICE OF TWO BEERS and OUR DRINKS ARE COLDER THAN YOUR EX-GIRLFRIEND’S HEART.

 

Sorry, I suffer from foot-in-mouth disease. There isn’t a cure.

 

And it was impossible to take the swaggering deputy sheriff seriously knowing that he had once been kicked offstage for playing “Jingle Bells” with his armpit during the high school talent night.

 

“Get out of the way, cougar! He’s five years younger than you.” “Who you calling cougar, you horny old saber-tooth!”

 

 

My Review:

 

I was frequently smirking and thoroughly entertaining by this crisp and cleverly written book.   The characters were likable, witty, smart, and endearingly flawed. This was my first experience reading Lia Riley’s word craft, although I hope to make this extremely pleasurable experience a regular occurrence, as I adore her sense of humor and comical descriptions; reading this book was good fun.   I would happily read a book like this every single day. The writing was well paced, engaging, and delicious. The quirkiness, pettiness, and pitfalls of small town living were observantly illuminated and captured in a colorful and highly amusing manner.
