My Thoughts

I completely devoured this book! From the moment I picked it up, I was completely hooked! This book had me absolutely swooning and laughing out loud.

I loved the small town setting! Melanie Harlow has such a knack for writing settings that feel so warm and inviting. This one was just as captivating as Cloverleigh Farms but wholly unique in feel. I also loved the snippets of Cloverleigh in here! 

These main characters were everything. Not only was I completely smitten with Griffin, but Blair was charming and hilarious. I loved the dynamic between these characters and the tension between them everything. The chemistry between the MCs had me fanning myself on more than one occasion. 

Not only were the main characters fantastic, but so were the side characters! There were so many side characters I loved them all. This book also did an amazing job at getting me excited for the upcoming books in this series! I’m completely obsessed with Griffin’s friend group and want all their books right now! 

Overall this book completely captured me and pulled me into this adorable, small town. I loved the main characters, their romance, and Melanie Harlow can write one hell of an amazing sex scene! This book was steamy, romantic, and full everything I love in romance! I can’t wait to get my hands on Cole and Cheyenne’s book!
