Season of Love

Pride, Oregon #3

by Jill Sanders

Head back to Pride Oregon to find out what some of your favorite Jill Sanders’ characters are up to. 

Lilly Stevens didn’t have time to flirt anymore, and that was a real shame since the man of her dreams was right next door. Opening a boutique, Classy and Sassy, with her cousin has taken all of her free time, and her spending money. Still, it’s hard to say no to the sandy-blonde haired man with sexy green eyes and a killer smile. Not to mention, the man could make her laugh, which was one of the most important items on her list of potential loves of her life. 

Corey and his twin, Carter have finally achieved their lifelong dreams of being on their own. Finally, they can have a normal life, even if their shared dark history has forced them to be leery of letting anyone in. But the little town of Pride has a way of shedding light in the darkest corners. Now, the sexy girl-next-door has caught his eye, but she’s too perfect for someone with his history, even if her crystal slate eyes and lush pouty lips demanded his attention.

Lilly may be a bit overwhelmed with starting a new business but that hasn’t stopped her from noticing the cutie next door.  He’s funny, charming, and oh-so-appealing.  But with a less than ideal family history, Corey doesn’t feel like he deserves a chance with Lilly but she’s proving herself a little too tempting.  Then life throws them together. in an adorable and humorous manner and all doubts are thrown aside.  But trouble from the twins’s past may derail any chances they have for a HEA.

Sanders delivers one of those satisfying small town romances.  It’s all about the characters, their interactions, the closeness of the community, and all the emotions that go along with it.  There’s a little drama (and a nail biter of an ending) but it doesn’t overwhelm the more gentle story of these two getting to know each other and falling in love.

(This is my first in this series but I had no trouble keeping up.)
