Review: Till I Kissed You by Laura Trentham

Till I Kissed You
Cottonwood #3
Laura Trentham
St. Matins Paperback
August 2nd

It’s summertime in Cottonbloom, where two lovers find themselves at a crossroads just as things start to heat up. . .

Regan Lovell grew up on the wealthy Mississippi side of Cottonbloom—and now, as mayor, she’s determined to save it from the fate of so many small towns. Part of her plan to help the local economy is the Labor Day tomato festival. If only she wasn’t being undermined by Sawyer Fournette, who’s planning a crayfish-themed celebration on the Louisiana side of the river on the very same weekend. The pranks and sabotage are getting out of hand, and she’s had it with him—no matter how much she enjoyed those stolen hours in his truck bed, so many years ago…

Sawyer knows that Regan's never forgiven him for breaking her heart—but despite his reputation as a low-class swamp rat, he’d never hurt the woman who still secretly drives him crazy with desire. Someone in Cottonbloom has it out for her, though, and Sawyer intends to watch her back…and the rest of her too, if she can ever let go of her distrust. But will a common enemy be enough to unite them—and finally fulfill the promises they made one passionate night under the stars?​

This story has been building through the prior two stories in the series. I don't know about you but I was so excited that it was finally here. 

I've really fallen in love with Trentham's writing. She does a great job of mixing small-town with a heartwarming story and humor. All the things you want in a story!

Like I said, each book led up to Sawyer and Regan's story. In each of the books prior you learn that they have history and that at this time in their lives they don't really trust or like each other. Which sucks for them but leaves us with some very funny moments.

I will tell you that it would be best to start with the first book in this series Kiss Me That Way. Like I said above you start to get to know the couple in that book. Plus, there is a story that runs through each of the books.

Also, the first two books are so good too!

I will admit that in the first book I wasn't really a fan of either Regan or Sawyer's. In book one, they both came off a little unlikable. Regan more so. She was a little crazy about what was going on in the town how she thought that everything that went wrong was Sawyer's fault. I'm not telling which parts are his fault. For Sawyer because it was his brothers book and his issue was with the brother, you sided more for the hero of the book.

In the second  book I still was so-so with Regan, but liked Sawyer. Regan I liked more by the end of the second book. I was a little worried that I would't care for her in her book. I shouldn't have worried at all. Once you were in Regan's head you understood so much.

You learn more and more about them and their past. Understanding is like a slap in the head.

After about a fourth of the book I was on a roll with them. I was already invested in their story, but now I needed to know more. Believe me by the end of the this book all you question will be answered and you'll be happy how Trentham tied up all the loose ends from the other two stories.

This is the perfect end of summer read. Plus you'll be you'll be ready for her Christmas story, Candy Cane Christmas which is out in Oct. This is a novella, so it's perfect.

If you've read Till I Kissed You or any other books by Laura Trentham I'd love to hear your thoughts. Thanks for visiting and happy reading!

 Here's the first two book in the series along with my reviews!
