The Wilder family is something of a Sweet, TX institution: between their yearly BBQ blow-outs and their Hardware and Feed store, they're an institution- an institution that ex-marine Reno Wilder has tried to preserve, in honor of his lost loved ones. But it seems like he's the only one who's got any respect left for traditions when a new TV makeover show rolls in to renovate Sweet to bring in more tourists. Everyone is pleased except Reno- and this cowboy is determined to keep everything just the way he likes it.
A woman who wants to change everything...
Inquisitive. Stubborn. Smart. Drop dead gorgeous. That would be makeover show host Charlotte Brooks- the woman Reno has declared war against. And yet, he can't seem to keep away from her, or to get her off his mind. Charlotte isn't about to back down from a challenge of any kind= and she's promised to prove to Reno that change can be sexy, hot and very, very sweet, if Reno and Charli learn to let go of their pasts and grab hold of a future full of promise.
This book has everything I love in a Contemporary Romance. Ms.Terry manages to perfectly balance small town charm with lovable characters and just the right amount of humor and passion. This was a wonderful fun read and I finished it in one day! Charli has been added to my list of most likable heroines, I loved everything from her attitude and desire to help people, right down to her cute little dog Pumpkin. Reno is the perfect sexy tortured hero and these two burn up the pages with their chemistry!
I've heard this author compared to Rachel Gibson and as a die-hard Rachel Gibson fan's, I whole-heartedly agree- fan of Rachel's are sure to become fan's of Candis Terry!
I gave this book a very solid 5 STARS! I will be stalking www.candisterry.com to find out what is next for the Sugar Shack series. There are several characters from this book that deserve their own stories (ie: Reno's brother and his ex-wife- hint, hint Candis if you are reading this!).
Here are a few links in case you want to grab this book right away, it comes with the Save Your Money for Books seal of a guaranteed great read!
Candis Terry was born and raised near the sunny beaches of Southern California and now makes her home on an Idaho farm. She's experienced life in such diverse ways as working in a Hollywood Record Studio to chasing down wayward steers. Only thing that has remained the same: her passion for writing stories about relationships, the push and the pull in the search for love, and the security one finds in their own happily ever .
