My Review:Beginning Babble: This series has consistently been one of my favorites. Usually series drop off for me but this one hasn't. It's to the point where I don't think Macy Beckett can write a book I don't love.
Heroine: Leah-She was a great heroine. There wasn't anything extremely extraordinary about her. But I think that's why she worked for me. She was extraordinary in her normality. Her normality made it much easier to empathize with her...her past with Colt was quite heartwrenching.
Hero: Colt-Colt could have come across really skeevy. And in the hands of a lesser author, he would have. But he wasn't. He was kind, gentle and a bit of a scamp. I did have moments where I wanted to smack him upside the head with a brick but, for the most part, I really liked him.
Chemistry: I think part of the reason this couple worked so well together is their past together. It gave their relationship depth. We got to understand their history as a couple and how different it was from the present. Both acted childishly in their past (and Colt had a moment there towards the end of the book) but it was easy to see the growth of the characters based on their history together.
Ending Babble: I love this series for more than the amazing romance. The small town feel and the characters always feel extremely authentic. The secondary characters are lively and Sultry is a place I would want to live in. The only character that didn't really work for me is Colt's niece Emma who needed a lesson in manners and some discipline. I do not like bratty children in my romance novels...or real life.
