Red's Rating: 4 Stars
After his life implodes for all the world to see superstar John Tennessee McCord decides it's time for a little R&R outside of the spotlight. He sets out on a journey of self discovery, which seems to be going well until his truck breaks down and leaves him momentarily stranded in the little town of Hellcat Canyon. So he heads to a little local cafe in search of help and maybe a meal and ends up discovering something far better... a gorgeous waitress named Britt Langley.
The minute Britt Langley sets her sights on her tall, dark, and handsome stranger that waltzes through the door of the cafe she knows he's trouble... the good kind of trouble! But she's not in the market for man, the one she just got rid of did enough damage to last a lifetime and she has no intentions of signing herself up for that again. After talking to J.T. she can tell that he is in need of saving, but she's not so sure she is the woman for the job, she has enough of her own troubles that are constant lurking. But there is something about this smooth talking stranger that is wearing her resistance down, and causing her to reconsider a little roll in the hay...
This was my first read by this author and I have to say it made a pretty impressive first impression, and earned her a spot on my "go to" authors list. The minute I started this one I was hooked and dying for more, these two uniquely crafted characters pulled me into their world and commanded my attention. They completely won me over with their witty one liners, quirky southern charm, down to earth personalities, and passion filled heated banter. I highly recommend you give this read a try, it is one of those reads that will have you in tears one moment and laughing the next, and is certain to leave you with an overall feeling complete literary satisfaction!
