Check out the full review filled with quotable quotes at The Brunette Librarian's Blog
The novel opens as Clay is sitting in a diner by himself on Thanksgiving and an unassuming waitress brings him a piece of pie. Melody, our heroine, has just left a disastrous marriage and is fleeing from an abusive husband. She has no money, no family, and very few friends. Clay is attracted to Mel, a woman who has no idea of his fame and simply isn’t interested in his money. Mel is attracted to Clay for his easygoing attitude and sweet nature.
The romance in this novel is very sweet, kind of like a melty Hershey’s bar. Clay is such a tough, strong man used to fighting for everything he has ever gotten. Mel is a brave young woman having left her abusive husband with nothing more than the clothes on her back. They come together slowly at first, but its worth the ride, because once they become a couple, it’s instant fireworks. Sure its sticky sweet, but its the best sort, I assure you.
Beyond these two characters that you instantly fall in love with, the secondary characters create an engaging atmosphere that is absolutely hilarious. Clay lives with the Connor twins Jules and Wyatt, who are both hilarious. Jules is the heroine of the second novel, “Star Crossed,” so be sure to check that one out.
