CA Harms is kicking off a new series and it looks to be another winner!
Brooklet Dreams #1
by bestselling author CA Harms
Publisher: Limitless Publishing
The next generation of the Southern Boys returns in a new spin-off series, Brooklet Dreams…
She was supposed to be my forever…
I’ll never forget the first time I saw her. She wore overalls two sizes too big and a pair of gloves that were also too large for her little hands. But that didn’t faze her one bit, and we clicked instantly.
By the age of twelve, we had become best friends, and by the time we turned sixteen, we were more. I had eyes for only one girl. My girl.
But then life changed, and different paths led to broken promises. When she left town, I was forced to let go of our dreams.
I spent my days existing. Baseball, classes, and working at the family farm became my life. I didn’t care about anything else. Until I met Allison Jo.
AJ was the quiet girl I never expected. She brought me to my knees with that beautiful smile. She made me laugh and slowly brought the old me back to life. I found myself wanting more with her.
I became her world, and she was my everything.
But when my past returns, my world is turned upside down.
I’m not sure I was prepared for what was about to happen.

I’ll be honest, I usually avoid the in/fresh-out-of college, new adulty kind of book. Most of the time I just can’t connect with the characters but Harms does a really good job here of giving readers people that they can like. Both AJ and Rhett are reasonable and appealing (no melodrama), they have good friends and loving families (with characters returning readers will love to see again), and a slow build romance that is down-to-earth and lifelike.
At first, I did have a little concern with how love AJ waited for Rhett to get over himself and move on with his life. However, I don’t think she sat around and pined. She was just very patient and I remember that feeling – circling around someone, waiting for them to notice you. Once he does, though, Rhett definitely steps up 🙂 It may have taken him a while (and a few smacks up to the side of his head from his friends) to decide to move on, but he’s definitely smart enough to recognize a good thing when it’s right in front of him.
(I have seen a few complaints about how Rhett handles some things but I didn’t mind it at all. I understood where he was coming from and what he was saying. I’m not sure if there was some confusion with the words the author used or maybe a little transference onto his character but I didn’t get the same vibe that some did.)
Those looking for some kinda over-the-top love triangle story won’t find it here. Instead, Allure is a sweet read about moving on and finding love again. I will admit that there was a little drag in a couple because there wasn’t a lot of drama to the story. To me it seemed that pages went by without a lot of character or plot development, so it was just about getting us to the end and the HEA catalyst. But Harms definitely knows how to bring that about. I really enjoyed the ending and how everything is wrapped up in a feel-good way.
C.A. Harms is an avid romance and mystery reader. She’s always had a love for books, getting lost in writing and storytelling even as a young girl. She enjoys happy endings and HEA love stories.
She lives in Illinois and enjoys spending time with her husband and two children. She holds an addiction for Starbucks White Chocolate Mocha’s and KitKat when she should really be focusing on water and maybe a fruit or two to make herself feel less guilty, but that feeling quickly passes…thankfully.
She is easy going, fun, and although she may seem like one of the quiet ones at first, you just wait until she gets to know you better…that quietness changes, fast.
