5 - "Things worked out just the way they were supposed to..." Stars!

The relationship between Sawyer Fournette and Regan Lovell that has been on a high simmer through the previous two books in the series, finally gets bought to the fore in Till I Kissed You.

The Town Mayor of Cottonbloom, Mississippi and Parish Commisioner of Cottonbloom, Louisiana have more than a little history, and we are finally given the reasons as to why they went from lovers to frenemies, and now back to lovers.

Till I Kissed You is the icing on the Cottonbloom series cake and we finally get to discover just why there appears to be no love lost between Mayor of Cottonbloom, Regan Lovell and Parish Commissioner, Sawyer Fournette.


As with the previous books this couple have history and, despite ten years passing, there's unfinished business between Regan and Sawyer which has manifested into in a fiery, competitive, love-hate relationship. And when it begins to look like someone is holding a gru

Loved this second chance romance between Reagan and Sawyer. Their story was the one I wanted to read ever since they were introduced in the first book.

As you know, I'm a sucker for a good second-chance romance trope, and Laura Trentham delivered a heartfelt one with Till I Kissed You.

The first time Reagan and Sawyer came together, you get a sense of doom. Everything is stacked against them. Sawyer was from the wrong side of the river, and had no business being in the same room let al

Till I Kissed You was such a good read.

Loved this second chance love story. Regan and Sawyer were wonderful characters that will touch your heart with their second chance love story. Sigh.... I loved these two.

Cottonbloom Novels series has been such a wonderful read, highly recommend all the books.

A big thank you to St. Martin's Press via NetGalley for the advance copy.

Laura Trentham is back with the final Cottonbloom romance, and if this tale doesn’t finally unite the divided cities, nothing will! Till I Kissed You is a sweet romantic’s dream. Two teens, immaturity and outside pressures tearing them apart before they truly understood what love is, years later, although technically “adults” their tumultuous ALMOST re-kindled affair is priceless.

Regan is now Mayor of Cottonbloom, MS and Sawyer is the Parish Manager for the parish that includes Cottonbloom, LA.

There is something about small town romance that has a way of capturing my heart. Maybe it’s the simplicity of the story, the raw heart-tugging emotions, or maybe it’s Laura Trentham beautiful prose. Well, it was all of the above.

Till I Kissed You by Laura Trentham is the third installment to the Cottonbloom Series and this time around Trentham continues to charm her readers with a second chance romance story line. Trentham continue
Before you read this book I can only recommend that you read the other two in the series.

Am I a fan of second chance romances? No.

Did this work for me? Yes.

Regan and Sawyer were sweethearts what they had was the real deal but with a lot of things in life it didn’t go as planned. Sawyer the swamp rat and Regan Lovell the sip couldn’t have come from more different worlds and yet they were the only ones they let their guards down around.

She would love Sawyer Fournette forever.

Finally, after months of circling each other warily Sawyer and Regan finally come to a head. With the festival competition fast approaching, a saboteur on the loose and the whole town watching, these two star crossed lovers have more than their emotionally complicated history to worry about.

This was a great way to bring this series full circle. I loved Regan and I loved Sawyer. Getting a glimpse into their past w

After reading the first two books (Kiss Me That Way and Then He Kissed Me ) I knew I had to read this one. I had to find out who won the Labor Day Festival – Regan Lovell and her Mississippi side of Cottonbllom or Sawyer Fournette and his Lousianna side. The love/ hate relationship between these two hard headed characters made for an interesting read. The small mystery of who was trying to stop the festivals gave it enough intrigue that made it hard to put down this book.

Regan and Sawyer were high school sweethearts, but misunderstandings tore them apart. Now, years later, the festivals and a mysterious enemy bring them back together. The love they shared is still there, but they need to resume the trust and what's the better way to gain that then to work for the same goals together. Who wants to sabotage the festival? Can Regan and Sawyer finally solve the issues from the past to live happily ever after?

I have been waiting for this book since I read the first in the series and I can say that it was everything I'd hoped for. Ms. Trentham saved the best for last and she certainly knows how to bring the heat. The chemistry between Sawyer and Regan blew the scale and the emotions that that have been simmering for so long just bubbled over.

The Mississippi river is not the only thing that separates Sawyer Fournette and Regan Lovell. It's their backgrounds and their shared history. In a community that

Mayor Regan Lovell was doing everything she could to help her people as they strove to make things successful for an upcoming Labor Day festival. They were on the Mississippi side of Cottonbloom and they knew they gotta beat the other side of the river to win.

But when things started getting out of hand, like threatening letters, fire in the gazebo or trashed tomato gardens, Regan thought there was only one person who would likely do that. Sawyer Fournette. The man she had loved eleven years ago

Finally we get Regan and Sawyer's story and it's exceptional! Whether you've been reading the series all along or if your just picking this one up you will enjoy reading about these two. This is the third book in the series but is easily read standalone! As both sides of Cottonbloom get geared up for the upcoming festival competition, things are getting out of hand and it seems getting personal. Regan is receiving threats and of all people to help her find out who's behind the threats, Sawyer Fo ...more
3.5 Stars

The least favorite of mine in the Cottonbloom series so far. I don't know whu but I've really connected and enjoyed the chemistry between Cade and Monroe in Kiss Me That Way yet I struggled with this book, unfortunately.

Hopefully it'll better with the others. Can't wait!

NOTE: Unfortunately due to my hectic schedule, I will be unable to make long and detailed reviews like before. However, I will try to do my very best to at least take the time to write something. Brief yet, nonetheless.

It is always a bit sad when you come to the end of a series. Till I kissed You is the 3rd and final book in the Cottonwood series, but I do hope that somewhere down the line we do get to revisit.

To me this was the best in the series. There is just something about Regan and Sawyer that spoke to me.

I love a good second chance romance, and this love-to hate-to lover story was all that and more

Maybe it was the fact that even though it had been years

After all those teasing hints and highly charged run ins from the first two books, Sawyer and Regan's story definitely lived up to my expectations! This was a perfect second chance romance! Regan's sassy spirit meshed well with Sawyer's quiet strength, but the real draw was watching these two deal with hurtful misunderstandings from their youth. I'm utterly hooked on the Cottonbloom series! ...more

Till I Kissed You is the 3rd in Laura Trentham's Cottonbloom series and the first that I've read. But I will say I'm already halfway through book one and I'm adoring it. So although this is a series, these books can be read as standalones. Here's what I know - they are fantastic sweet second chance romances set in a fictional township that's split by state lines. There's Cottonbloom , Mississippi and Cottonbloom, Louisiana and both are inhabited by families that sometimes get along and sometimes ...more

Second chance romances are my absolute favorite reading trope! I love that the characters have a past and I love seeing how they’ve changed and learned from their mistakes. I think it makes the romance richer and deeper and that much more special.

Regan and Sawyer were high school sweethearts…but they had to keep their love a secret because Regan’s mom didn’t approve of Sawyer. Even though Sawyer was a high school sports star, popular and handsome, he had a huge secret: he and his brother and sis

Finally Regan and Sawyer!! These two are a hoot. You finally find out what happened to tear them apart and what finally happens to bring them back together again.

But will a common enemy be enough to unite them—and finally fulfill the promises they made one passionate night under the stars?

This was a nice second-chance-at-love. H/h were very young when they were together and allowed insecurities to break them up, hero was too aware he was from the wrong side of the tracks, heroine allowed her mother's influence to make her break up with him and when she tried to undo that she misunderstood a situation and didn't allow him a chance to explain. Both of them have been working against each other because of the town festival but when the hero smells danger directed towards the heroine ...more

Perfect wrap-up to the series. Sawyer and Reagan have loved and hated one another for so long they hardly know where to start. Pitted against one another in a competition of festivals, they find themselves with a common enemy and the sparks fly.

This was my favorite book of the series so far. I mean after all the drama between Sawyer & Regan in the first two books, we knew this one was going to be good. I'm happy to say the drama continues in this one, albeit a little different since Sawyer and Regan aren't up to their antics again. Instead, there is someone trying to sabotage Regan and make her stop the festival. So in comes Sawyer to the rescue.

I received this book as a giveaway from probably Bookstr (probably when it was still called The Reading Room).

I wish I could give this book 6 stars. It transported me to Cottonbloom on every page. The characters were very real and headstrong and definitely made for each other-if only they stopped assuming they knew what the other was thinking! I'm definitely going to have to find the other books in this series and I hope they work even after reading book 3 first. Laura Trentham is a fantastic wr

4.5 stars.

Till I Kissed You, the final novel in Laura Trentham's wonderful Cottonbloom series, is a beautiful second chance at love romance.

Regan Lovell and Sawyer Fournette's complicated past is a major factor in their tempestuous relationship in the present. Their teenage romance ended due to parental interference and a major misunderstanding and although they have avoided one another for years, Regan and Sawyer are joining forces to discover who is trying to sabotage their upcoming festivals.

This is the final book in the Cottonbloom series and the second chance romance theme continues with Sawyer and Regan’s story.

There is a river that runs through Cottonbloom separating the Mississippi and Louisiana sides of the town. For years there has been a constant rivalry between the two sides. Regan Lovell is the Mayor on the Mississippi side and Sawyer Fournette is the Parish Commissioner on the Louisiana side. When a festival is coming to town it sets the old rivalries tenfold.
