Emmalynn is an amazing woman who had her heart broken by her abusive husband, Bryce, before he died in a car accident. Since his death she has devoted her life to her bookshop, baking, and raising her son, Tucker. She has kept her heart hidden and has not let any man get close to her because she cannot stand the pain of having her heart broken again. Grady is a hot as hell ex-special forces agent who is new to town. He came to town to take over his uncle’s bar and is not really looking for a woman, that is until he sees Emmalynn. The moment he lays eyes on her Grady knows that there is something special about Emmalynn, and he is determined to be the one to show her that she deserves to be loved. Throw in Tessa (Emmalynn’s best friend), Toby(her former brother-in-law who has an amazing fashion sense and a great sense of humor), a creepy stalker who thinks Emmalynn belongs to him and a crazy ass ex-girlfriend who wants Grady back and this is one amazing read.
Amber Nation has an amazing debut novel with this one! I cannot wait to read more books by her. She wrote a wonderful story that kept me captivated from the very first page. The characters were so real and believable. Emmalynn is sweet and loved by the entire town. Grady is hot as hell, but he is still a normal down to earth kind of guy. The storyline was intriguing and I was cheering for Emmalynn and Grady from the start. I am really hoping that Amber Nation decides to turn this book into part of a series. I would love to read more about the secondary characters who played a part in this book.
I give this book 5 stars, job well done Amber Nation!!!!!
Goodreads / Facebook I am a wife, mother of two beautiful girlies, an avid reader, and a new Romance and New Adult author. I was born and raised in Southern Indiana, but resided in Texas for five years while my husband was in the US Army. It was definitely a journey, but I am so glad to be back in my home state. Whenever I'm not doing my motherly duties or at the soccer field I absolutely love to read whenever I have a moment to spare. My kindle is never far from my side. My love of reading increased about a year ago and due to my love of books I decided to try my hand at writing. Already having a set of characters screaming to get out, my story took over and came to life.
