The hardheaded Armstrong brothers are determined to rebuild their tornado-ravaged hometown in the Georgia mountains. They've got the means, they've got the manpower... what they need are women! So they place an ad in a Northern newspaper and wait for the ladies to arrive... Sensible yet sexy middle brother Kendall Armstrong penned that ad himself - but there's just one woman he really wants to answer the call....
Civil engineer Amy Bradshaw - Kendall's ex-fiance - fled Sweetness years ago, taking a personal souvenir with her. She's back now...but only on a professional level. Really.
Little does she know that old flames always burn the hottest....

"The second in Bond's Southern Roads trilogy features her trademark humor, smart dialogue and steamy love scenes." (Romantic Times)
This shouldn't be a spoiler because it's more or less given away in the description: "Civil engineer Amy Bradshaw - Kendall's ex-fiancé - fled Sweetness years ago, taking a personal souvenir with her." Why is it that whenever young love is thwarted she ends up pregnant with a baby she never told him about because she wanted to be loved and not married as an obligation? I know, because it makes good fiction, and this is fun, escapist, fiction. And I really enjoy the premise of three brothers trying to rebuild the town they grew up in after it's been abandoned for over ten years after being destroyed by an F5 tornado. I enjoy the picture of Sweetness, (though not the name, too icky-sweet, Sweetwater I could have understood but who would name a town "Sweetness"?). It's getting a little odd, from the first book we have all these men and women who've come together more or less in a big matchmaking plan, and none of them are living together? All the men are still living in the bunk house and all the women in the boarding house. It just felt a little unreal. If this were a book with the premise of a community who all believe in abstinence until marriage it would make more sense to me, but the combination of sex scenes and no men overnight rules which are only, as far as we see, broken by the three brothers... it just didn't flow for me. Still, I liked the characters and wanted to see how things came out.
Unfortunately I really didn't like book three, which probably means I'll never listen to the series again.
Really enjoyed listening to the narrator and the voice of the inflections of the many characters.
The story vas really great. It was easy to visualize the event as if in real life. Can't wait for the sequel.
I enjoyed the series of 3 books of the 3 brothers. Cute, light reading. The reader had a pleasant voice and did a good job.
This book was good, but the brothers were a little to loyal to each other and their mother.I don't think that this brother should have let the town or his loyalty to everyone else come before his love.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It is the second in the series. The narrator was good.
