Review: It Happened on Love Street by Lia Riley
It Happened on Love Street
Everland Georgia #1
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 is the second series I've read of hers. I started reading her when I discovered her Brightwater series which I truly loved.
If you haven't yet read it, you really should try it.
But we are here to talk about her new series Everland Georgia. I've got to share this with you, I so badly want to visit this town. I just love the street names. Crazy good!
It Happened on Love Street is the first in the Everland Georgia series and it starts that series off with a bang. Or, maybe it should be a arrow instead? You know, to go with the theme of the town and the characters name. Ha!
Okay, enough silliness!
Like I mentioned this is the first book in the series and I will tell you the series starts off so good! Poor Pepper! She thinks she can control everyone that she loves if she only make herself needed by those around her. If they counted on her, they wouldn't leave her.
Can you say, mommy issues? Yep, you said it! Because of what her mother did to her she has huge issues with truly trusting people, or really loving them enough to count of them. How sad, right?
The funny thing is that Rhett has some of the same issues, just differently. These two are made for each other. They just need to figure it out.
You are going to love Rhett! He's such a nice caring guy who takes care of animals for a living, what's not to love?
It's not always easy being Pepper or Rhett but I like how the author handed them. Their story is very well done. I liked it and only got mad at the characters a couple of times. What can I say, it's like a parent with a child, you can see the mistakes they are making even when they can't.
After reading It Happened on Love Street and meeting some of the towns people I can't wait for the next story, The Corner of Forever and Always. Love, love, love, these titles!
