A sexy small town, wounded hero rom com!
Sawyer Landry knows he’s been beastly to be around for the past few months. But he can’t seem to remember how to be fun-loving and friendly. Until he sees Juliet Dawson on his boat dock… and realizes that hip waders are, apparently, one of his turn-ons. But despite the beauty in the boots, the last thing he needs right now is a city girl in his way for the next two weeks.
But he’s not really getting a vote. Juliet is determined that her little brother rebuild the dock he and his idiot friends smashed. She’s quirky, klutzy, independent…and possibly an even bigger pessimist than Sawyer is. He’s incredibly drawn to the cynical fish-out-of-water, who seems to be the one person who isn’t intimidated by his growling.
The big, gruff boat captain is the first person in a long time to want to watch out for her and Juliet finds that hotter than his grandma’s jambalaya. Well, that and his sexy scar, his emotional baggage, and the sense of humor and fun that is buried deep. But Sawyer doesn’t need any more people to worry about long-term and the things that make him feel protective of Juliet aren’t going to go away.
So, this two-week adventure can’t be anything more than a fling. With Juliet down on the bayou, there’s an even bigger threat than alligators and hurricanes. There’s the very good chance of someone ending up with a broken heart.
This story is about Sawyer and a city girl (Juliet ); it is a contemporary romance with a massive dose of humor. I love that both Sawyer and Juliet complement each other and balance each together even though they worry a lot. Their forced proximity brings on a hard and fast romance and chemistry you can’t miss. Of course, the rest of the family is in it, making this book a fabulous read. I have loved the lighthearted comedy and sweet romance in this book and can’t wait to read more in this series.
This is Sawyer’s book; we know him as the angsty growly owner of the Boys of the Bayou. Parts of his story have come out in other books, and this book begins where the last book left off. This book does seem short compared to the others, but we shall see.
I can already see the attraction between Sawyer and Juliette. Sawyer hears conversations, and where and why are his only questions. He saves the lady from distress and, of course, admires her assets. I love Juliet’s sass and well-thought-out answers. I so love the Landry family with the brash speech and jokes. This story is full of naughty, misconstrued words and innuendos, making it enjoyable to read.
This book gets an adrenaline rush as they go out on the bayou. I’m surprised she doesn’t run away after that. I like the changes in Sawyer, and this book does get steamy. The epilogue of this book is fantastic, and I can’t wait to read more in this series.
