Starting Over at Blueberry Creek by Annie Rains
Firefighter Luke Marini moved to the small town of Sweetwater Springs with the highest of hopes - new town, new job, and new neighbors who know nothing of his past. And that's just how he wants to keep it. But it's nearly impossible when the gorgeous brunette next door decides to be the neighborhood welcome wagon. She's sugar, spice, and everything nice - but getting close to someone again is playing with fire.
Brenna McConnell put college on hold to raise her little sister. Now that Eve is grown, Brenna is ready to leave Blueberry Creek and finish what she started. Moving on isn't easy, however, when her gruff new neighbor gives Eve a dangerous firefighting job. And yet, even as Brenna is telling him off for putting her sister in harm's way, she can't deny the sizzling chemistry between them. She put her dreams on hold once. Is she willing to make that sacrifice again for a chance at forever?
I can't believe we are already on book #4. Where has the time gone? I think that happens with a series that you enjoy. They seem to be both flyings by yet seem to take forever for the next one to be out.
I've really enjoyed the Sweetwater Springs series so far. Each book gets better and better. Sharing more of the wonderful people in the town.
Up this time we have Luke and Brenna.
What can I say about Luke other than he is such a great guy! He's the type of person you want to know. Good to his neighbors (this might be funnier when you read the story) and those who are around him.
Shortly after coming to town he's thrown into the deep end and has to take on some responsivities he wasn't expecting and handled it perfectly. This is a man who doesn't let fear and worry hold him back. He does what he has to and gets the job done.
He's also a sweet guy who's lonely and needs friends. You'll love his friends and will want their stories soon.
Where Luke is easy going and has his life on a good track Breena is a mess. She's as tight as a spring. You can't help but feel sorry for all she's gone through. It hasn't been easy and she's done a fine job of taking care of all that needed taking care of which includes taking care of her sister Eve.
I have not read a more unlikeable character in all the time I've read. And I'm including killers. I would have buried the body behind the house. Okay, maybe I wouldn't have gone that far but the second she turned 18 she'd be on her own. The sad thing is the author gave her exactly what she wanted in life so hers is pretty good even though she treats people horrible and is very disrespectful.
If you can overlook Eve (which is hard) you'll love how Breena and Luke's romance beginnings. Their falling in love is so sweet and you want nothing but happiness for them. It takes a while for them to really figure out what they really wanted in life but when they do it works perfectly for them.
