Review: First Last Kiss by Lia Riley

This cover is just as sweet as this story!
Pinterest Perfect. Or so Annie Carson's life appears on her popular parenting blog. Reality is.. messier. Especially when it lands her back in one-cow town, Brightwater, California, and back int he path of the gorgeous six-foot-four reason she left. Sawyer Kane may fill out those Wranglers, but she won't be distracted from her task. Annie just needs the summer to spruce up and sell her family's farm so she and her young son can start a new life in then big city. Simple, easy, perfect.

Sawyer has always regretted letting the first girl he loved slip away. He won't make the same mistake twice, but can he convince beautiful, wary, Annie to trust her heart again when she's been given every reason not to? And as a single kiss turns to so much more, can Annie give up her idea of perfect for a forever that's blissfully real.

I fell in love with Sawyer & Annie in author Lia Riley's debut novel, Last First Kiss.

Annie & Sawyer were friends when they were younger, and thanks to some meddling friends, they were forced apart leaving Annie with a broken heart. She never really fit in as a youth in Brightwater being the daughter of the town's eccentric resident Kooky Carson. Now she finds herself a single mom,  back in a place she never fit in, again standing out, but this time she has an agenda. She will fix up the homestead, sell and move herself and her son to a place where they can start over.. if she can survive the house falling down around her, Sawyer's crazy Grandmother, who is still carrying the torch of a the Kane/Carson family feud and fighting the undeniable attraction for Sawyer.

Sawyer knows that he messed up once, but he isn't going to repeat the past. He will convince Annie that she belongs with him and in Brightwater, come hell, high water, or his Grandma with a chicken pie that she just made from one of Annie's egg hens. He is pulling out all the stops in hopes that one of them will keep Annie and her son in Brightwater and in his life forever.

I am a big fan of the traditional contemporary romance and Last First Kiss is the epitome of a story that stays true to the genre.  Fan's of Candis Terry's, Sweet Texas series and Emma Cane's, Valentine Valley,  will quickly fall in love with the town of Brightwater. Last First Kiss is a whirlwind second chance romance full of humor, friendship and most of all love. I gave this book 5 Stars and can't wait for more from this series and author!
