This Story Is Flirty

Publisher's Summary

Can town librarian Lily Dixon and MMA bad boy Reese Cooper keep their love affair a secret in small town Iowa?

Braden, Iowa is the last place on earth Reese Cooper wanted to be, but a devastating injury in the octagon forces the MMA fighter back to the small town he once called home. He barely steps foot on Main Street before he is reunited with Lily Dixon, the town librarian and the girl who possessed his heart since they were in kindergarten.

Every day in Braden is the same for Lily Dixon. That is until Reese Cooper walks back into her life. With his chiseled, perfect body and dreamy blue eyes, he steals her heart just like he did when they were kids. His kisses, his touch, are far better than any fantasy she's ever had about him. Is she willing to risk everything when her preacher father finds out about her love affair with the town bad boy? And what will happen when Reese goes back to Vegas, leaving her alone in Braden without him?

Small towns are great for the rumor mills. Reece goes home to rehab his shoulder. Lilly is the preacher's daughter. What can go wrong? good read and romance.

Good

Innocent librarian who’s always carried a torch for a misunderstood bad boy who left town as a boy and came back as a man and a MMA fighter. It sounds improbable but it’s a good story.
Narration was good

Good story but needs a stronger heroine

First, Chaz Allen is good- although the book follows both Reese and Lily’s POV, there’s only him narrating and he is a pretty good at representing both male and female characters. However, having a female narrator would be great. Additionally, the narrator has a slightly older voice than I would have imagined for any of the characters. But he had great pacing and was able to differentiate between voices.

Overall, especially in the beginning, this was a sweet book. Reese is a MMA fighter who has always loved Lily but they were never able to even explore a relationship because her father was against it. Fast forward many years, he comes back to town to recover from an injury and meets with Lily, who is now the librarian. As adults, they now have the opportunity to get together, as long as Lily can go against her father’s wishes and Reese can overcome him reputation. The relationship actually progresses really quickly- Reese knows what he wants and both admit to being in love with each other pretty early in the book. So, we get to see how they overcome obstacles to their HEA. Reese had a difficult childhood that really extended into how he was in a relationship and I have to admit that I didn’t like how weak Lily was as a person. Communication errors (that should have been easily prevented) and small town oppression provided the angst in the book and I have to admit that I enjoyed the last quarter of the book less than the earlier bit, until, of course, the HEA. Overall, worth a listen!

the preacher's daughter falls for the bad boy...

Town librarian, and the preacher's daughter, Lily Dixon has always obeyed her father and done the right thing. She's never confessed that she always had a huge crush on the town's bad boy. MMA fighter, Reese Cooper is back in town to recuperate after his last fight left him injured. He's always had a crush on Lily and he intends to explore his feelings for the town good girl...except they have to sneak around because her father will definitely not approve. There are so many secrets that can come between them but will they let them?
Good story of forgiveness, standing up for what's right and unconditional love.

Reese and Lily are so cute.

Great story. Reese and Lily are so cute. This book can be listened to as a standalone. Chaz Allen did a good job narrating. I really like second chance romances. The story was a lot of fun to listen to and follow along. I enjoyed Tricia Andersen's writing and character development. The story was a whole lot of fun to follow along.

Good Book

This is a second chance, small town, sweet story with some heat to it. Reese returns home to recover from a MMA injury and Lily is the local librarian and preacher's daughter. They overcome obstacles to finally be together. Worth the time.
