Love, betrayal, and sweet revenge--life in Cottonbloom is about to get a whole lot hotter . . .

Sutton Mize is known for lavishing attention on the customers who flock to her boutique on the wealthy side of her Mississippi town. So when she finds a lace thong in her fiance's classic cherry-red Camaro, she knows just who she sold it to: her own best friend. In an instant, Sutton's whole world goes up in flames. . .

Wyatt Abbott has harbored a crush on Sutton since he was a young kid from the other side of the tracks. He witnessed Sutton's shocking discovery in the Camaro at his family-owned garage--and it made him angry. What kind of man could take lovely, gorgeous Sutton for granted? But then Sutton comes up with an idea: Why not give her betrothed a taste of his own medicine and pretend that she's got a lover of her own? Wyatt is more than happy to play the hot-and-heavy boyfriend. But what begins as a fictional affair soon develops into something more real, and more passionate, than either Sutton or Wyatt could have imagined. Could it be that true love has been waiting under the hood all along?

Laura Trentham has turned into on of my all-time favorite authors. I just love her books and when I see a new one being published I get all excited. I just can't help myself. 

I have to admit this was one of my favorite romances of the year. For some reason the characters and their story really stood out to me. I just loved them and wanted them to find all the happiness they could. 

These two really deserved it. 

I think you'll really enjoy both Sutton (great name) and Wyatt. They both are truly nice people. You can tell right away that the last thing they'd do is hurt someone. From the beginning I cheered them on! 

What started out as a slip of the tongue turned into the talk of the town, two towns in this case! You can't help feeling for Sutton. No one deserves to be betrayed by their best friend, of course I see this as they were really never your best friend or they couldn have done this to you. Plus, would you want to be friends with someone of such lower character? Nope!! 

The only (really one) of the good things that came out of this is that she lost the asshole and got a Wyatt! 

Oh Wyatt! Love you and your messed up family. I really can't wait for all their stories. I hope the author is listening, from what I could tell there are a ton of Abbott's in this family. I'm in heaven thinking about all the stories I could have. 

From page one you won't want to stop reading Leave the Night On. It's full of everything you'd want in a romance. Great characters, love, friendship, humor, you've got it all. Did I mention family conflict and cheating assholes? My bad, you can't forget those things. 

I've really enjoyed this new addition to the Cottonbloom series. Do yourselves a favor and read the series in order. It really helps to build the story line that runs through the series. Not to worry, it's the perfect end of summer reading. 

If you've read Leave the Night On or any other book by Laura Trentham I'd love to hear your thoughts. Thanks for visiting and happy reading! ♡

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. Then He Kissed Me, a Cottonbloom novel, was named as one of Amazon’s best romances of 2016. 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.
