Is it coincidence or fate that brings Justin Garrison and Lauren Evans together on the same dark, country road one May night?
Twenty-five year old Justin quit his job on an oilrig in California and traveled back to his hometown of Masonville, Tennessee. He intended for his vacation in Masonville to be a pit stop on his path to creating a future elsewhere, but an encounter with the beautiful and independent Lauren Evans turns Justin’s future plans upside down.
After a devastating betrayal by her father, twenty-one year old Lauren is left to manage her family’s garden and nursery business in Masonville. Although guarded from the betrayal, she still longs to find love. After a few chance encounters, Justin and Lauren are unable to resist each other.
The magnetic attraction between them opens their worlds to an enthralling period of lust and passion. Will the intensity be too much for them to trust, or will a secret Justin’s family holds about Lauren destroy their chance at a future together? (Summary thanks to GoodReads)
My Thoughts -
I really liked this story. I read it in a day - signs of a great story. The connection between Justin and Lauren could be felt instantly. I enjoyed their accidental meetings and how their relationship grew. Justin was a great guy and Lauren was pretty cool. Great, great story.
The editing on the other hand...bad. I also didn't like the corny and cheesy things written. I wanted to red pen this and send it back to the author in a bad way. The scene breaks are not distinguished, which causes the reader to be confused at times. Re-edit, replace the cheesy stuff and separate the scenes and I'd give it a 5/5!!
