review- it happened on love street - lia riley
The most romantic place she never wanted to be . . .
Pepper Knight moved to Everland, Georgia, as step one in her plan for a successful legal career. But after this big-city gal's plans go awry, going home with her tail between her legs isn't an option. So when the town vet-and her sexy new neighbor-offers Pepper a temporary dog-walking job, she jumps at the chance. No one needs to know that man's best friend is her worst nightmare . . . or that Everland's hot animal whisperer leaves her panting.
The last thing Rhett Valentine wants is to be the center of small-town gossip. After his first love left him at the altar, he's been there, done that. These days, life is simple, just the way he likes it. But sultry southern nights get complicated once sparks fly between him and the knockout next door. When she proposes a sexy, secret fling-all the deliciousness and none of the prying neighbors-it seems too good to be true. And it is. Because Pepper's determined to leave Love Street, and when she goes, she just might take his heart with her . . .
This book kicks of the new Everland Georgia series by Ms. Riley and kick it off she does!
Ms. Riley has a thoughtful style to her writing that I really love. It's not always an easy thing for an author to do, but Ms. Riley has some serious skills here (if you've read her, I hope you see my point).
There are several plot lines here but work perfectly together; plus there are PUPPIES! I am such a sucker for that!
It Happened on Love Street is touching and humorous, sometimes even a bit over the top- but I still LOVED it.
Both Pepper and Rhett (our heroine and hero respectively) are perfectly suited. In fact they are alike in some key ways...but you'll have read to the book to see if you agree or disagree with me!
I will admit though, there were a few times I was yelling at them, but that is half the fun sometimes when I read a book.
Overall I really enjoyed this book- the town and characters (main and otherwise) are well developed and I am looking forward to the next book in the series.
