kisses are anything but restrained. He knows a thing or two about starting over,
and he’s convinced a little fun is exactly what Brooke needs to put the past
behind her. And he knows exactly the man for the job…With a tempting offer like that, Brooke can’t help but try another kiss – or
two, or three. But as the chemistry gets hotter, and their connection deepens,
Brooke and Riley will discover that building a new future means reckoning with
the past.

My Rating:

Favorite Quotes:


…he’d been punctual—already waiting at a table in the corner when she’d arrived. Sure, it was because he liked to clean everything down with the antiseptic wipes he carried in a little plastic pouch, but hygiene was always a good thing. Right?


 She was a smart woman, she had a college degree and great references, she could program her universal remote and tell when her friends started dating low-life, no-good cheaters. But it turned out, when a low-life, no-good cheater came along to sweep her off her feet, Brooke was swept right up in all his pretty lies.


I thought leaving everything behind would help, but sometimes baggage has a way of following you around.


Only child. I’m their sole source of disappointment.


Real men don’t mope…. We brood. In a manly, strong fashion.


My Review:


I continue my girl crush on Melody Grace and her adorable and delightful Sweetbriar Cove series. I enjoy her crisp and amusing writing style, delectable characters, and a collection of recognizable and interesting people with realistic yet unusual problems. I was drawn to this enticing couple and enjoyed watching their easy friendship evolve into an incredibly steamy relationship, as each grew in confidence with themselves and each other. The characters were smart, witty, and cleverly written, and provided a fun and enjoyable read.  I will be eagerly awaiting the next book, which is scheduled for release in November.

    This has to be a book for me because I’m married to one of these:
    “Real men don’t mope…. We brood. In a manly, strong fashion.”

    I really love the girly and fun cover. I also like broody men. I will give it a look at Goodreads.
