Review: 100 Hundred Reasons by Kelly Collins
Cannon Bishop was a man who learned long ago that hope was a dangerous thing. Closed off from the world after a family tragedy, Cannon lived a lonely life as the owner of Aspen Cove’s only bar and son to the town drunk. When Sage Nichols breezed into town, she offered the possibility of more if he’d only open his heart. Cannon's protective walls tumble and suddenly a brighter future of healing, hope, and peace was possible… if only Sage would stay.
If you follow me on the regular then you know I love small-town romances. There is just something about them that calls to me. I like the connection between all the people in the series. So when I was asked if I'd like to try a new author I said, sure. I wasn't going to start it right away but I'm guessing you figured out that I did.
I'm so weak!
I kinda needed a break from all the space aliens I have been reading. Those reviews are coming soon. Now back to this one. Like I mentioned this is the first time I've ever read of this author and it won't be the last. In fact, I already downloaded the second book in the series to read.
I will start out by saying I love the idea of the series. Or at least how the series started. I don't know how much Bea gifts will affect the stories to come. The heroine was given this wonderful gift and I was thrilled for her. I didn't care for how she was treated at her job but I understood that it was needed to get her to go to her new home.
I love Cannon and feel for him and what he's going through. The crap he has to deal with over his father's life choices is rough to read about at times. I really felt for him. I was so happy when he finally had someone to help him deal with all the crap. Sometimes it takes someone outside the situation to deal with things that family can't.
For the most part, the romance between Sage and Cannon runs pretty smoothly. They don't have a ton of roadblocks in their way. I kind of like the uncomplicated romance between them. It made for a very sweet read. Now saying that doesn't mean there isn't any sexy time between them because there is, it just means that they together is sweet.
As a start of a series, this was a good one. I really think you'll enjoy the characters and love when Sage gives her "Sage advice", one of my favorite parts of the book. I also liked how she brought in someone to help Sage get through the move in the form of a friend called Katie. Her book is next so I'm looking forward to her story. Also, an abused woman was mentioned and I'm looking forward to learning more about that. Plus there is Sage's sister. Just a thought I wonder if we'll have her story? I'm not going look ahead, I want to find out through reading the series.
For those of us that love small-town romance you'll really enjoy this one. Any of you read her before?
