I am an avid reader I devour books as I read them It honestly takes a lot for me to give a novel 5 stars This one has it in spades I truly felt the emotions of each character has I read along The surroundings of Blue Lake, the small town this novel takes place in, was described perfectly The author did not over describe anything It was just enough to keep you in the moment and the story flowing I never skipped a single page or paragraph, due to what I call droning THIS IS A MUST READ I am an avid reader I devour books as I read them It honestly takes a lot for me to give a novel 5

did not over describe anything It was just enough to keep you in the moment and the story flowing I never skipped a single page or paragraph, due to what I call droning on and on.lolHarlow is a believable lead heroine I related to what she had been through I felt her pain, confusion and her need to change herself for the better Loved her personality Even though she was done wrong she never let that stop her from from dreaming about her future Finding love Some may say that is happened to fast, however I also got dumped after 3 years in a relationship and the very next night met my soul mate We ve been together for almost 11 years D So it can happen Dane was a great alpha male for her love interest They knew each other already from their childhood He was perfectly strong, sexy and handsome With the perfect amount of the bad boy we all fall in love with This novel was 244 pages I read it all in one sitting and lost sleep, because I could not put it down It played like a wonderful lifetime movie, in which I could not bring myself to hit the pause button I needed to know what happened next.lolThis novel is a Contemporary Romance that I highly recommend You will not be disappointed This is the 1st novel of Kristin Miller s that I have read So I can easily say it s a stand alone read even though it s book 5 in the Blue Lake series I can definitely say I m eager to add this series and author to my TBR list and I will soon be purchasing this whole series DThe last thing I want to comment about are the love scenes For me they were perfect Just what I like to read in a romance If your like me and come to a supposed romantic sex scene and they talk like it s a bad porn, all the romance flies out the window and the book is ruined for me, even if the story is good That s when I have to start flipping pages until the story picks up again This book is DEFINITELY not like that Kristin kept the scenes believable, loving, sexy and heartfelt The steam factor is a perfect 3.5 1 being clean, 5 being Erotic Definitely pick up this novel and get ready to fall in love D This was a sweet story of a childhood friendship crush that turns into love in adulthood Harlow
