Publisher's Summary

Falling in love in a small town is tricky. Falling in love with the man who's putting you out of business is trickier.

Leslie Baker, owner of Potter Lake's original hometown beauty shop, the Curl & Dye, has a muscular, handsome, six-foot-four-inch problem. Her college sweetheart, former basketball superstar Kade "KC" Cavanaugh, is back in Potter Lake following his NBA retirement, and the  shop he's opened, a slick and shiny coed salon, directly competes with Curl & Dye.

Despite the "friendly" competition, KC is all too eager to pick things up where they left off so many years ago, but Leslie can't forget how he pushed her away after an intimate encounter, then dropped out of college and left her behind for the bright lights of professional ball.

Though she won't admit it, time and maturity have eaten away at Leslie's anger, and her long-buried attraction to Kade Cavanaugh has resurfaced. With a vengeance.

And then there's the problem of the two sides of Potter Lake at war and the town on the verge of destruction at the hands of a crook. Leslie and KC find themselves in the center of this citywide drama, and with their livelihoods at stake, the two have to stop sniping at each other and start working together. But first...can they forget the past, forgive each other, and revive what was once a budding romance?

Loved it!!!

Growing up in a small town makes me partial to stories with a small town backstory. That also means, I won't tolerate a bad one. This listen was good! In all it's small-town majesty, I loved it. This is a great romantic story and we all know there is an HEA on the horizon. What I loved and enjoyed most about this story was how real the characters were. I felt like I knew them!! That could also be because the narration was impressive, as well. This story could have easily gone to "sappytown" but the author penned and the narrator performed, a fantastic, multi-faceted exploration into the "what if's" and "why not's" that encompasses a good love struggle. There were quite a few characters in the supporting cast that also gave this story its richness. I really did enjoy Potter Lake, in all its glory.

My favorite by far!!!

Yes indeed!!!!!! I have truly enjoyed this story of perseverance, ownership, teamwork and strength!!! (APPLAUDING). TC loyalty to KC, the all hands on deck mentality of friends and coworkers for both KC & Leslie corners are beautiful at best!! Come on DL, gimmie someone of these folks!!! N.Nubine Aurora,CO

Dragged Out

This story was dragged out, first sex scene in chapter 20. I was disappointed because I previously listened to the author other book, Dinner at Sam's, which was good. And the guy in this book was a little wimpy, I like Alpha males. So if you like a story dragged out, and sex scene starting in chapter 20 then this book is for you.

Refreshing!

sometimes you just need a good wholesome book that doesn't have anyone dying or a whole bunch of heartache and heaviness. sometimes you just want characters to win. this is that refreshing good vibes book. there wasn't a ton of drama which is what I'm used to and will return to after this pick me up book, but I like that this book left me feeling good.

Potter Lake Is Giving Me All The Feels!!!

I love the simplicity of Leslie's Curl & Dye. KC and Leslie was able to get past their issues and move forward with their relationship. I loved me some Tamera. You gotta love a good girlfriend that'll go hard for you but, damn she was all in Leslie's business. She was taking some things way too personal that had me asking is Leslie her BFF or her chic?!!! I'm just glad she finally found a boo and climbed out of Kade and Leslie's business. I sure hope this series doesn't end with The Guy Next Door. I mean, I liked Evonne but, I didn't think she was a popular enough character to merit her own book. I really hope TC gets a book. I would love to see her get her HEA. I am loving The Potter Lake series. I can't wait to dive into book two.

Loved It!!

Such a great second chance love story. Lots of LOL moments. Great character chemistry, bantering hilarity, sexy storyline, and well-throughout plot. I truly enjoyed it.

Not too bad

The writing was good however Leslie was annoying in the beginning. The back and forth with her best friend was a little petty at times. It ended on a good note. The performance was ok but it needed a male narrator.

Loved it!

This book for me was refreshing! I read alot of urban novels. Some are very gritty and then there are some that's so unrealistic! Not this book. it was so wholesome and realistic. Really meaning. Coming from a small town I could relate to the issues at hand. Loved it. hopefully there is a part 2!
