Summary

Naomi wasn’t just running away from her wedding. She was riding to the rescue of her estranged twin to Knockemout, Virginia, a rough-around-the-edges town where disputes are settled the old-fashioned way…with fists and beer. Usually in that order.

Too bad for Naomi her evil twin hasn’t changed at all. After helping herself to Naomi’s car and cash, Tina leaves her with something unexpected. The niece Naomi didn’t know she had. Now she’s stuck in town with no car, no job, no plan, and no home with an 11-year-old going on thirty to take care of.

There’s a reason Knox doesn’t do complications or high-maintenance women, especially not the romantic ones. But since Naomi’s life imploded right in front of him, the least he can do is help her out of her jam. And just as soon as she stops getting into new trouble he can leave her alone and get back to his peaceful, solitary life.

My review

Okay, so, hear me out. I loved the storyline. The runaway bride and everything that happens to her. I am even jealous of Naomi. The town she ended up in, is a town I’ve always dreamed of. But the sx scenes were just, unbelievable. I do like my books spicy, make no mistake, but I like them REALISTICLY spicy. And this book is far from. But, because I liked the storyline, I still gave the book a 3 star rating. And book 2 and 3 are from the perspective of the other characters. So I have to read them too.
