I like romance and boys loving boys in my books.
You can also find me on my main blog.
I adored this book. I adored the characters, the setting, the writing - it was all just fabulously well done, and I want to read it again and again.
There's no drama, no angst, no OMG, what's happening, and it just flows sweetly and fluffily along, like a gentle river without any rapids. This is the kind of book you read when curled up on a comfy chair with a beverage of choice, and just immerse yourself in its story.
Jefferson Lee Davis returns to his hometown to help his uncle Sherman who took a bad fall, and gets immediately sucked back into small southern town life. Everyone but the Sheriff seems happy that Jefferson Lee is back in town. They don't give a hoot that he's gay - he's beloved, no matter what - and with the town's big festival, Dogwood Days, coming up, Jefferson Lee is busy doing what he can to help.
Except the Sheriff is actually happy too, because he may have a thing for Jefferson Lee, and the two embark on a journey of lust and love, and it's amazing to watch it all unfold against the backdrop of Holly Creek, small southern town.
Poppy Dennison just hit it out of the park with this fluffy romance, with humor and snark, and while it may be slightly fantastical to think that folks in the town are all so very accepting, I didn't care at all that it was entirely realistic, because the story sucked me in, and I LOVED it. It made me laugh out loud more than once, and I giggled a lot at the antics and idiosyncrasies of everyone in the story. With small town politics, nosy gossiping townsfolk, apple pies and southern comfort food, Uncle Sherman who's maybe, just maybe, romancing the Mayor, and super hot Zane, Mr. Sheriff himself - this book had it everything I needed.
Super fun, super fluffy and sweet, this was exactly what I wanted to read when I read it.
I want y'all to read this when you need a pick-me-up and a break from all the dark and angsty stuff - this is marshmellowy perfection inside a book.
