This is the 3rd book in the Love Bug series and my personal favourite. We follow Lance, Olde Town's biggest player cowboy and Katherine, Jordan's best friend from Charlotte. Can they find happiness together like their best friends?

Both protagonists know all about one another before they set eyes on each other, so Katherine is determined not to fall for this cowboy's known charm. However with a lop-sided grin and green eyes it is going to be difficult to resist such a gorgeous man. Lance has always had an eye for a pretty girl, and he's gotten to know most of them in his town since messing up his relationship with the only woman he's ever loved. Is he going to follow his friends and find the perfect woman for a happy ever after?

The pair finally meet in person under unforeseen circumstances, with Katherine trying to not fall for Lance's country boy charm. Besides, she's a city girl living and working in Charlotte! She has a sassy mouth and is an equal match to anything Lance says. He knows that they appear opposites, but so are his parents, so he feels confident that he can find happiness with this auburn haired accountant. Nothing is clear cut and lines of communication cease, lead to confusion. Luckily, stars begin to align when Lance begins an accounting job, unbeknown to him that it is the same company Katherine works for. Will Katherine resist Lance's cowboy charm once more?

In the previous books in the series, Lance is portrayed as a Jack-the-lad guy, but just below the surface we glimpse a man who has loved and lost before – he has a big heart and knows that his past behaviour and reputation could ruin his chances with Katherine. I love his determination in his attempt to win Katherine over, even when she delivers devastating information which rocks him to the core. Somehow, three words let him know what he missed and what he wants in the future. But underneath all the bravado is just a guy trying to protect, charm and win his girl's heart.

What I singularly love most about the three books in The Love Bug Series is how each time-line is close together, giving the readers the opportunity to see some scenes from more than one point of view. It adds greater depth and understanding to pivotal plot-lines which makes this a truly 5 star series.
