Review & Giveaway: Kiss Me That Way by Laura Trentham

Cottonbloom #1
Laura Trentham
Releasing May 31st, 2016
St. Martin's Paperbacks

A river divides Cottonbloom in two: the upscale enclave on the Mississippi side and the rundown, rough and tumble side in Louisiana. They’re worlds apart—but nothing can build a bridge like love…

Cade Fournette never had it easy Cottonbloom. He stuck around long enough to raise his orphaned siblings and then hightailed it out West—and never looked back. Even though he’s made a success of himself in Seattle, Cade never lost the toughness and the angry edge that helped him survive down South. His only weak spot: the girl he left behind…

Monroe Kirby came from the wealthy side of town, but that didn’t protect her from her mother’s drinking—or her mother’s boyfriend. It was Cade who did that, on a long-ago hot September night, before he disappeared…along with a piece of her heart. Now Monroe is a physical therapist who can fight for herself, and it’s Cade who could use some conditioning when he makes an unexpected return back home. Will he and Monroe pick up where they left off and finally explore their mutual passion—or will the scars and secrets of the past divide them once more?

From the first book of Laura Trentham I was hooked. I just love her books. She does a wonderful job of small-town romance. I was so excited for this new series. It sounded so good. 

And it is! 

I admit, I'm a fan of the back to back books. I'll even go so far as to say that I'd take a smaller page count to get them. When I'm in a new series I want to know more and more. Here with the back to back books I get all the main characters I like, right away. 

Leaves room for more upcoming characters next year. Of course Christmas in Cottonbloom would look mighty pretty!

Hint, hint!!!!

 When I first read about this series I was thrilled at the idea. Two states, one town! Cool right? 

Loved, loved Cade! He is such a great caring guy. He gives 100% and then some. You won't be able to not love him. You know pretty much right away about his past so you really want to see him get a great loving future! 

Monroe was also a great character. Of course I did have a little issue with her name in the beginning. It took me at least a chapter to remember shes a she, and not a guy. 

These two are perfect for each other. When you read this, and you will, you'll see what I mean. Right away I wanted to know everything about them.  

You'll be so happy after reading this heartwarming, funny & touching story. Not only do you have great charcters (hero & heroine) you will love the secondary characters that have stories coming soon. 

Secret are going to love Sawyer and Regan! Yeah, yeah, it's not much of a secret....

I'll be reviewing Then He Kissed Me around the time its out so keep a eye out. 

If you've read Kiss Me That Way or any other book Laura Trentham I'd love to hear your thoughts. Thanks for visiting and happy reading! 

Don't miss the next Cottonbloom romance 
coming June 2016

An award-winning author, Laura Trentham was born and raised in a small town in Tennessee. Although, she loved English and reading in high school, she was convinced an English degree equated to starvation. She chose the next most logical major—Chemical Engineering—and worked in a hard hat and steel toed boots for several years.

She writes sexy, small town contemporaries and smoking hot Regency historicals. The first two books of her Falcon Football series were named Top Picks by RT Book Reviews magazine. When not lost in a cozy Southern town or Regency England, she's shuttling kids to soccer, helping with homework, and avoiding the Mt. Everest-sized pile of laundry that is almost as large as the to-be-read pile of books on her nightstand.


  1. Thanks for reading/reviewing! on the lookout for a Xmas novella set in Cottonbloom but you'll get to catch up with some Falcon characters too:)

    1. Now I'm dancing around! My holidays are going to be a good one!
