Small town. Big secrets. Welcome to Sweet Ridge, Texas

When the Cooper brothers hear what their father left them in his will, they’re surprised to find that the things closest to their hearts were given to three random women. Gavin Cooper had his heart set on owning the house the family had grown up in, and when his old high school rival inherits it, he’s devastated. But she can’t sell the house for one year, and that’s plenty of time for him to find a way to get it back.

When Macy Young said goodbye to Sweet Ridge and left to pursue fame and fortune, she never thought she’d return. After losing her best friend, Macy went on a downward spiral of pain and shame. Living in the inherited house where she’d spent many happy hours might just soothe her weary soul.

Macy and Gavin will have to find a way to forgive themselves and each other if they’re ever going to be happy. Can this country star and veterinarian forget their pasts and start a life together?

📝My Review📝:

Sweet Texas Kiss (Sweet Texas Secrets, #1)Sweet Texas Kiss by Monica Tillery

My rating:  3.75 stars.

Sweet Texas Kiss is the first book in a three book series. In this series, the Cooper Brothers will find their happily ever afters. After his death, the patriarch of the family ends up leaving his sons the surprise and shock of their lives. Apparently each brother was promised a specific area of the family holdings and at the reading of the will this was not the case. In fact, it was quite a betrayal for the Cooper sons. Apparently Mr. Cooper left his sons’ inheritances to three random women. What was he thinking? Fortunately, Mr. Cooper had a plan put in motion before he died. You will have to read the series to find out what that was.

This book is Gavin and Macy’s story. This is where I admit that I did not have a connection with either of these two characters. I really did not believe their romance. For the most part, and throughout most of the book, Gavin and Macy were not friends. And this was all due to Gavin and the many grudges he held onto regarding Macy. Thankfully the last several chapters of the book were better able to engage me. And while I came to understand both main characters, I still wasn’t a fan of Gavin. When it came down to it, he was very immature. Thankfully, as the story unfolds, Gavin is finally able to put the past behind him and admit, he was wrong in some aspects of his assumptions where Macy is concerned.

Now, regarding the author’s writing, this book had potential to be a five star read for me if it weren’t for my lack of connection and dislike for Gavin. However, the writing flowed well, and the author did paint the characters and town so that I could imagine what it was like to be in Sweet Ridge, Texas. Each one of the books in this series are written by a different author and I am looking forward to see how the remaining two Cooper brothers find their happily-ever-after.

This was my first book by this author. And while this book wasn’t one of my favorites, I was still able to enjoy it, by the time I turned the last page.

This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂
