4.5 Stars

I’ve adored all the titles in The Country Road series, and eagerly awaited Landon’s story.  Anyone who is familiar with the series, will recognize that we briefly met Addison Sinclair, in Champagne and Forever. 

This is a sweet, steamy, and heartfelt read with strong themes of family , friendship and love, added with a touch of humor sprinkled throughout.  

Addison is a divorcee, single parent to a teenage son.  Her ex is pretty much an absentee father, which added with hormones, and a bad attitude, makes for a very rebellious teen.  At her wit’s end and feeling like Mason needs a positive role model, she moves to Lexington to be near her younger brother Taylor.  Addy has insecurities and baggage galore and despite her intense connection and attraction to Landon she stresses about starting a relationship.  I loved how her character evolved and grew over the course of this title. 

Landon is the last man standing in his group of friends.  He want to find his happy ever after, and have a family of his own, but he doesn’t want to settle.    He’s such a loveable character with a huge heart.  He’s hard working, sweet, protective, kind and caring.  I absolutely adored the bond he formed with Mason and the trust they shared. 

The characters are complex, yet endearing, realistic and relatable.  As I’ve come to expect this title is well written, fun, and has a touch of drama.   I will be eagerly awaiting Taylor’s story next, and I’m glad that we haven’t quite seen the end of these characters yet.

Andrea Johnston spent her childhood with her nose in a book and a pen to paper. An avid people watcher, her mind is full of stories that yearn to be told. A fan of angsty romance with a happy ending, super sexy erotica and a good mystery, Andrea can always be found with her Kindle nearby fully charged.

Andrea lives in Idaho with her family and two dogs. When she isn’t spending time with her partner in crime aka her husband, she can be found binge watching all things Bravo and enjoying a cocktail. Nothing makes her happier than the laughter of her children, a good book, her feet in the water, and cocktail in hand all at the same time.
