Till I Kissed You (Cottonbloom #3)
by Laura Trentham
Regan Lovell grew up on the wealthy Mississippi side of Cottonbloom—and now, as mayor, she’s determined to save it from the fate of so many small towns. Part of her plan to help the local economy is the Labor Day tomato festival. If only she wasn’t being undermined by Sawyer Fournette, who’s planning a crayfish-themed celebration on the Louisiana side of the river on the very same weekend. The pranks and sabotage are getting out of hand, and she’s had it with him—no matter how much she enjoyed those stolen hours in his truck bed, so many years ago…
Sawyer knows that Regan’s never forgiven him for breaking her heart—but despite his reputation as a low-class swamp rat, he’d never hurt the woman who still secretly drives him crazy with desire. Someone in Cottonbloom has it out for her, though, and Sawyer intends to watch her back…and the rest of her too, if she can ever let go of her distrust. But will a common enemy be enough to unite them—and finally fulfill the promises they made one passionate night under the stars?
Mayor Regan Lovell was doing everything she could to help her people as they strove to make things successful for an upcoming Labor Day festival. They were on the Mississippi side of Cottonbloom and they knew they gotta beat the other side of the river to win.
But when things started getting out of hand, like threatening letters, fire in the gazebo or trashed tomato gardens, Regan thought there was only one person who would likely do that. Sawyer Fournette. The man she had loved eleven years ago. The man who broke her heart. The man who still made her knees weak after all those years.
Sawyer still couldn’t forget the woman who held his heart. He and Regan had a sour past and he wanted it to end. But how could he start something new with her when she believed he was responsible for all the sabotage that was happening in her turf. Would he ever gain her trust again?
I can’t believe this has been the end of a series. And man, it ended with a bang! I felt sad for Sawyer and his pains, I pitied Regan and her mommy issues, I devoured them both when they struggled to be together and I cried when their hopes started to fall apart.
The flow of the story was beautiful and engaging and hot. I loved all the strange feelings I felt while reading the book. The characters stepped up their games making this summer story of second chances a really great read. Till I Kissed You was able to deliver one heck of a punch to my heart and sent me flying over the river. I didn’t think it would end like this. I was thoroughly surprised by the turn of events and I loved it. Had me teary eyed, even. Laura Trentham has clearly outdone herself with this last book. Yay!
