About this book:
Recently divorced, Laura Baughman is taking her life back. After a decade away, she’s returning to Yachats, Oregon—the small town she couldn’t wait to leave after graduation—to take over her late mother’s beloved flower shop. Yet once she arrives, Laura discovers the store has been neglected and her father has partnered in construction with Jake Lock. The once-scrawny high school band geek is now successful—and irresistibly sexy—and set to inherit her family’s business. That is, unless Laura can prove in the next thirty days that she has what it takes to run the company.
Despite the heat between Jake and Laura, romance is out of the question. After her last disastrous relationship, Laura has sworn off men—especially one bent on crushing her dreams. That’s just fine with Jake, who thinks the gorgeous blonde is a pain in the neck…though admittedly one he’d like to put his lips all over.
Jake has a proposal to mix business with pleasure. But when a deal goes south, Laura is ready to pack up and skip town all over again. Does he have what it takes to convince her to stay?
For this book 3 out of 5 stars.
I want to thank NetGalley for providing me with and ARC of this book for my honest review!
Now I will explain why I’m only giving 3 stars. Although I liked this book, I do have very conflicting feelings about it too. For me personally it wasn’t ‘full’. I wanted to know more about the MC and this book was so fast paced it was a bit too much, if you know what I mean. In some parts I just felt like some trying to tell me a long story but only having a limited time to do it. So I feel like the full potential of this story wasn’t explored enough. But you know, maybe that’s just me.
Knowing all that, I have still enjoyed this book very much. It’d hooked me from the start and I just couldn’t put it down. Well since my schedule is very hectic at the moment I was actually kept picking it up to be exact. Because I really, really, really wanted to finish it!
I would recommend this book as a free-time-don’t-think-too-much-about-it read. It probably won’t teach you much about life in general, but it is a fun and a steamy read and just great for a relaxing evening with a book.
Although after reading this I have started thinking more about my priorities in life, family, university and work. I might have learned something from it after all! J
