ARC Book Review - Candy Cane Lane By Laura Trentham
A very Cottonbloom Christmas!
Jeremy Whitehurst has tried to leave his bad-boy behavior and tarnished image behind in Alabama for a fresh start in Cottonbloom, Louisiana. Unfortunately, trouble has dogged him across state lines. Stepping up and protecting a young woman from her abusive boyfriend earned him a beat-down and got him fired. Although the thanks in the girl’s dark eyes made it all worth it, he recognizes she’s just a different kind of trouble. A trouble he’s not sure he can stay away from.
One rebellious summer dented Kayla Redmond’s carefree innocence. Now her focus is on completing her associate’s degree for bookkeeping, and no one is going to derail her plans. Unfortunately, her job at Fournette Brothers Designs puts her in the path of the one man who has seen her at her worst, yet his blue eyes don’t judge her. He sees beyond the brokenness inside of her and rouses her wild side once more. But, that’s what got her in trouble in the first place.
Christmas is coming and Kayla’s ready to forgive herself and take a chance. But the holiday has only ever brought heartache to Jeremy. No Christmas miracle kept his mother clean or out of jail. Will one reckless night and some time spent in the back of a cop car be the best present Jeremy’s ever been given?
I'm a huge fan of Laura Trentham , her Cottonbloom series is just fantastic .When I heard that Jeremy and Kayla were getting a novella I was so excited. And when I had a chance to read this book early I dived into this story as soon as I could and I loved it , Candy Cane Lane was fantastic.
I love these two characters, I've gotten to know little bits and pieces about Jeremy and Kayla and I already knew I liked them from the other books in the series , but this book made me absolutely adore them, you got to find out so much more about them in this story , these two have definitely been through their share of troubles but we get to see them in a better place working towards there goals and it was just fantastic to see . The romance in this book was just wonderful ,there was already an attraction between these two but in this story we got to see them fall in love ,the sweet and sexy moments Laura Trentham creates between these two, made root for them more and more with every turn of the page. With a sexy romance ,a fantastic cast of characters and the fact that this book is written in the holiday season . Laura Trentham gives us an excellent story with Candy Cane Lane.
