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.

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.

Wonderful

Loved this book!

Leslie is such a great character. Her concerns and insecurities made her so relatable. The town was more like a supporting character.

Solid writing

Was a little bored in the beginning but it picked up by the end. I wish the romance would had been the main theme of the plot since that's what the blurb implies. It was a great tale of an ensemble cast of characters that I eventually ended caring about by the book's end. Definitely more women's fiction though. Still a good book!

Received a complimentary copy from the narrator/author.

I love the love in this story!

Every kind of love was represented: love for community, family, spouse, and self. It was a little slow at the start for me, but once I was in it, I just had to listen more. I enjoyed it.
