Travis Bennett is exactly the kind of guy Lauren Davis has been avoiding for the past nine years. Religiously. Stubbornly. Successfully. She knows too well how easy it is to let lust ruin perfectly laid plans. And a small town farmer with no ambitions beyond the borders of his own cornfield is not going to change her mind. She’s got important stuff to do. Her company is literally working to stop world hunger. Her plans are much bigger than Sapphire Falls. No matter how hot those farmers might be.
The problem is—Lauren is falling in love. With Sapphire Falls. To kick her sudden desire to buy a welcome mat and start baking pies, she asks Travis to help her get over her crush. She wants him to show her what life in the small town is really like behind all the sweetness and sunshine and remind her that there’s no place for French manicures and Gucci heels on the farm.
Travis has everything he wants or needs—a quiet, simple life in his hometown, a successful farm and his friends and family all around. A hoity-toity city chick who looks down on everything from the local coffee to his favorite music is the last girl he wants sticking around. So he agrees to her crazy plan. He can definitely show her the less-than-glitzy, rough-around-the-edges side of Sapphire Falls. In fact, things just might get downright dirty.
And here’s another Erin Nicholas book that slammed it out of the park. I was very much looking forward to Lauren and Travis’ book. Lauren had me intrigued from the beginning of the series with Getting out of Hand. Her lifestyle was not one for small towns (small towns aren’t very good at things out of their comfort zone…like the fact that she was bi) but we get to know more and more of her past and see that she actually fits the town, and they even embrace her and try to suck her right in with it’s charm. Even if she really, really hates that she loves the town.
And Travis was such a gentleman in Getting Worked Up with Phoebe I just knew I was going to really like this small town guy. Sexy, smart, and kind, Travis was everything a woman could want. Even Lauren admitted he is totally the type of guy she’d fall for. Which was why she thought he was the perfect person to show her everything that she shouldn’t like about Sapphire Falls. Silly woman. Lol. She really must have thought she had some iron willpower because if I had Travis all to myself the way she did, my wall of stubborn will would have crumbled within the first five minutes. He’s a sexy beast! And a gentleman! Hard to resist that combo.
I would really love to spend just a few hours in Erin’s brain. I want to know how she comes up with these addicting reads. She is able to bring these characters to life and make these places seem so real that I want to climb in my car and locate all of these place so I can make those people my best friends. It takes a lot of writing talent to be able to do this in every single one of her books too. Not every author is able to keep you engaged and keep you combing back for more. Erin’s my pimp and I’m addicted to her books. If it’s wrong, I don’t want it to be right!
