Presley McDaniel lives her life from moment to moment.

Making permanent decisions means obligation, and that would force her to stop being the family disappointment. Waitress, fitness instructor, dog walker … you name the hourly job and she’s probably held the position.

But when her grandmother can no longer run her book shop in Fawn Hill, a town so small it barely has its o

Favorite Quotes:

How old are you, anyway? And what’s your middle name? I should at least know the basics before I go on a date with you. You could be a serial killer.

I am jumpy, anxious, my palms are sweating … it is as if I’ve been arrested for a crime I didn’t commit and am about to confess just to make it stop.

… the two have the chemistry of a box of fireworks. Illegal ones.

Carrie Aarons, the queen of sweet, has done it again with Presley McDaniel and Keaton Nash. Presley is the girl that doesn't know how to do one thing for long, fleeting is the word that describes her. It's also the word that describes what she thinks of relationships, at least until a man sweeps her right off her runaway feet. She doesn't expect the small town to feel more like home than the big city ever did and she certainly doesn't think the swe

Carrie is one my go-to authors for sweet, wholesome romances and she never lets me down.

Fleeting is the perfect start to her newest series and I love every bit of it.

The blurb gives you all that you need to know, so there is no point in me re-hashing that. And I won't give you any new details either.

Carrie sets the tone and plot perfectly for this series with this book. We meet each of the brothers and get a little bit of background on each of them to know what we can expect in coming

5 stars for the sweet small town romance!

Fleeting follows the story of Keaton Nash, the town’s veterinarian and Presley who has moved from the city to help her grandma due to ill health.

There were some hilarious moments with Chance that dog, sweet romantic moments and some mystery concerning all 4 Nash brothers. Also Grandma was hysterical, she reminded me a lot of my Nan.

I loved that Nash was sometimes shy and stumbling over his words when he was around Presley and I love that Presley was a

I received an advanced copy of this book with the promise of an honest review.

Presley has moved to the small town of Fawn Hill to help her grandmother run her bookstore/post office (like only a small would have!) and she’s trying to find her bearings. Small town life is much different than what she is used so it’s taken her a bit to get in the swing of things.

Small town life gets a bit more appealing when she meets Keaton Nash, the town vet. Their first meeting is quite hilarious and I immediat

5 Sweet & swoon-worthy stars!

Fleeting is such a sweet and sexy small town romance. Keaton and Preston’s romantic journey was an absolute delight to read!

Preston is a bit of a free spirit, always living her life from one moment to the next, but never quite finding the happiness she desires. Needing a change, she leaves the big city and heads to the small country town of Fawn Hill, Pennsylvania. Once there, she helps her ailing grandmother with her bookstore/post office while also teaching a r

Omg these Nash brothers are gonna be trouble. Keaton was a first gentleman where I counts but omg was he hot!! You think quiet, reserved vet.....holy hotness! And Presley was a brilliant, independent heroine. They are complete opposites but perfect for each other!

I cannot wait to see more from this family. Bowden and Lily's story has me intrigued already!

Can I just say that Carrie Aarons you know how to write an angsty romance that will have you on the edge of your seat wondering what is going to happen next. I laughed and I cried while I was reading this book because my heart went out to both main characters Keaton and Presley. The way she wrote this story had me feeling like I was right there in the clinic and the book store with them seeing them live out their lives.

Fleeting is a small town romance in which the responsible town vet, Keaton meets the flighty city girl, Presley and sparks fly. This book had a lot of the elements I like in a small town romance story. Everyone knows everything about everyone. There is inevitably that little old lady that gets away with saying or doing what she wants and is usually lovable and funny. And there are the fun town traditions that can help bring people together. This story had all that plus the meddling family thrown

I received an Advance Reader Copy. This is my honest and voluntary review.

A small town, a book store, and a veterinarian with a meddling family? Sounds like a recipe for a good time to me and that's exactly what I had while reading Fleeting - a good time! Presley and Keaton (love those names) were the cutest couple and I LOVED the way they fought their attraction even though their coupling was inevitable. I'm so happy that this is the first in a series because I want more stories set in Fawn Hi

Carrie has a way with words that is like the ebb and flow of the ocean. Her words are flawless and perfect making reading effortless and enjoyable. The way she develops her characters and their story is absolutely amazing.

Presley moves to Fawn Hill to help her grandmother and in the process falls in love with this quaint, country town. Let me tell you that I want to move there! It’s sounds like picture perfect perfection. Presley grandmothers dog eats an article of her clothing and needs to be s

Keaton and Presley's story is a sweet feel good romance. Keaton is the reliable brother the ohe everyone turns to. Presley is the woman who is going to shake up his life.

This is only the start of our journey with the Nash brothers which is good because they are all intriguing.

I love Carrie Aarons!

Hello Nash brothers! I am not sure which one I want first!

Keaton Nash is a veterinarian who followed in his late father's footsteps.

Presley is a young woman that went to her grandmothers rescue. She is now working at her bookstore/packaging store.

This book was so good! I love me a super cute love story that is real! I mean I am not sure if this is a true story but it can totally be a true story.

These two characters reminds me of me and my husband in a way. I myself always

What I loved most about Fleeting was the realness of the characters, they didn’t say the perfect thing at the perfect time. They continued to say the wrong thing at the wrong time but that is life because nobody is perfect.

Presley and Keaton are perfectly described middle (overlooked, free spirit) and first (weight of the world on their shoulders) children. I loved watching these two types of personalities fall in love. They made mistakes but took responsibility and learned from them.

I loved this book so much. My heart!!! I don’t usually finished a book in one whole day, but I did it with this one. No regrets! This book caught my attention and I was so absorbed with the story since the very first chapter. The whole storyline was just so satisfying and so excellent. And the hero and heroine of the story are definitely the best and also an interesting characters.

Keaton and Presley first met at Keaton’s vet clinic and that was how the story of their romance started. Keaton is t

This review was originally posted on As Told By TinaI received this book for free from Author, Carrie Aaron in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. It all started with a dog who ate a pair of lace pink underwear.

Fleeting is the first book in The Nash Brothers series. Fleeting is about the oldest Nash brother, Keaton. This is a small town romance where the hometown vet meets the city girl.

Okay, so I started Fleeting this morning at is now 7:45pm and I just swiped the last page. That’s right, I read this in one sitting because I could. Not. Stop. Reading!

In Fleeting, Ms. Aarons introduces us to the Nash Family: 4 boys, their mom and the town of Fawn Hill. With this being the first in a series, it seems only fitting we get the older brother first, meet Keaton (I am in love with him and his name).

This story was so sweet and steamy, which is typical Carrie Aaron’s. She is a master at writing small town romances and proves it in this book. I love small town romances and this author only exceeds my expectations. She makes the characters come to life. You laugh, cry and melt with emotions in this book. This is a story of second chances and gaining family. The characters encounter turmoil and life-changing circumstances, but they prevail and are stronger and happier because of it.

Opposites attract and I enjoyed it. Presley and Keaton were different but compatible. What I enjoyed about this story was how the roles were reversed. The hero was the too good to be true small town nice guy that everyone loved and she was the city girl afraid of commitment that didn’t have any specific plans for her future. Also this wasn’t an instalove and even when he declared his attraction she turned him down, lol. So different!!!

But then Keaton weighed Presley down even though she still ha

I really enjoyed this book. Their romantic journey totally won me over. They said the wrong things, got nervous, and embarrassed themselves and I loved it. It felt much more real than books where their dates are perfect and they never accidentally trip and land on their face. Not that I ever did that or anything...

I loved Presley and her free spirit! And then there was strait-laced Keaton, the good looking vet. They were both living one part of their life, without realizing there was mo

Carrie Aarons captures the complete essence of small town living in the first chapter. From there it just gets better and better. I had a bit of a time keeping track of all the Nash men and who was who, who did what. However, the more the book went on the more Carrie gave them all really personalized personalities and the tiniest hints at their demons. I adored Presley. I found her charming and sweet with this surprising humorous side to her. While I might have had an instant attraction to them ...more

LOVED this story! From the very start to the end, this story was right up my street... A small town romance story, full of charm, a little bit of humour, and a family of Brothers who are going to keep us on out toes.

This first book in the series see's us meeting Keaton and Presley. Presley is in town helping her grandmother who is getting older and her eyesight is failing her. Presley has never set down any roots as such, and finds herself spending some time with her grandmother before she move

Presley and Keaton had me hooked until the very end. When Presley's grandmother can no long run the local bookstore, Presley decides it time to buck up and be responsible. When Keaton takes on the role as the town's veterinarian, he never expected to settle into his father's home town. Trying to move on from a broken heart ain't easy but when a certain red head comes into the picture, she makes want to do things he's never done before.

3.5 stars. - This was a nice story. Small town, funny, sweet romance. I really enjoyed Keaton's character. It was refreshing to see a man that knows what he wants, is completely honest about how he feels and doesn't have to be a jerk to do it. I just felt like there was something missing that kept me dying to read more. The brothers have me very intrigued though about their stories and I am definitely going to be checking out the next boosk.

Fleeting is a sweet small town romance. It has a small town feel and a hopeful nature. I think my favorite character is Chance. I'm sorry but his randy nature still makes me giggle.

Fleeting is cute. It's fun. It has me intrigued for the rest of the Nash clan.

Author of romance novels such as Red Card and Privileged, Carrie Aarons writes books that are just as swoon-worthy as they are sarcastic. A former journalist, she prefers the stories she dreams up, and the yoga pants dress code, much better.

When she isn’t writing, Carrie is busy binging reality TV, having a love/hate relationship with cardio, and trying not to burn dinner. She lives in the suburbs
