A small town outcast…
My status as the daughter of Eagle Creek’s most notorious resident hasn’t made my life easy. I do my best to keep my head down, and my younger sisters and eighty-six-year-old best friend are the only things I care about in this place. My life might be small and boring, but until Grayson Archer walked into my store, I was content. Grayson is a stranger in our small town, and way out of my league. Still, something about Gray draws me in and I can’t keep my eyes or mind off him.
Will meet her match…
Though I came to this tiny Wisconsin town to help a friend’s failing business, it’s now been over a year since I arrived. I try to tell myself otherwise, but Ruby McLean with her sharp tongue and dangerous curves is the real reason I can’t force myself to go. When she struggles to cope with her family’s troubles, I step in to help. More than anything, I’m determined to get out of the friend-zone she’s put me in and make her mine. I just need to convince her that everything I say means more than words.

This is such a fun book. It is totally not what I was expecting. There were some one liners that really had me giggling. There was so much depth to the story. Following Ruby and Gray on their journey was magical. She so easily pushed people away yet wanted so much more for herself than she was giving. She worked at the grocery store and that is where they met. We got the chance to see their relationship blossom to different levels before they reached their full potential. It was a full circle moment.
Age gap romances sometimes can come off as cheesy. I did not get that with this one. I really enjoyed that they were not defined by their age. There seems to be so much more than just a maturity difference. This book really does show that age is just a number. Ruby has been through enough to make her much older than a number. Her experiences change everything about her.
My Rating: This book is so good. I have to rate it 5 out of 5 stars. It was such a fun read that had so much heart to it. I recommend this book to readers who enjoy romance and want something a little different in their reading list. I truly enjoyed reading the growth of all the characters and the understanding that they shared. This is a great example of a book that comes out of nowhere and has become one of my favorites!
