The fourth book in the Sweetwater Springs series is just as wonderful to read as the others and can be read as a standalone. Each book features different people who live in the little community. This book stars Luke, the hunky and oh so helpful firefighter, and Brenna, the girl next door who has spent her life taking care of her younger sister Eve. Let me just say right here that if the book had been about Eve, no one would read it because she is a brat who needs a wake up to reality call! She is pushy and self-centered and altogether unlikeable. On the other hand, Luke is a hero and Brenna is a deserving young woman who needs some TLC. Luke is just the one to give it to her since he is new in town and needs to make new friends and establish a support group of his own. I enjoyed the back and forth between Luke and Brenna and the general feeling of visiting the small town of Sweetwater Springs again. The author describes the little NC town in a way that makes me want to be there and to actually meet these people. The virtual book trip there is awesome since Annie Rains pours so much time and attention into making her readers feel at home there. Fans of contemporary romance will love this charming series, and this latest book is a good place to start! I, personally, am looking forward already to number five in the series. These books are that good!


Disclosure of Material Connection: I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255, “Guides Concerning the Use of Testimonials and Endorsements in Advertising.”

My rating is based on entertainment as well as readability. The characters were realistic for today’s world and as such, there was pre-marital sex (unfortunately), but for the most part the book was a clean read.
I will say that the sexual scenes were not explicitly portrayed so they did not make me gasp with dismay or anything like that.

This book is available TODAY at your local bookseller and online!
