The attraction between Lauren and Caleb is immediate from the moment they meet, albeit shown through tension and feathers getting ruffled. The chemistry with these two is HOT and undeniable. They of course have to work for a happily ever after, but that's why we like this genre, right?
The characters are likable and I invested more in Caleb loving the pages where he showed up. Oddly, you never read any of the story from his point of view. We know what he is thinking only when he tells us through conversation. The whole story is told through the eyes of Lauren. I didn't realize that until half way through and realized I would have liked to get inside Caleb's head more. He is gorgeous, owns his own business, a volunteer firefighter, and has a tragic past that you just want to fill the hole in his heart yourself. Great leading man. Lauren is more complex in that she thinks she wants one thing out of life while running as fast as she can from the type of life she perceives Caleb could represent. She's also engaged to a powersuit in New York that could give her everything she ever wanted. Much to figure out for Lauren and she lets you in on all her thoughts along the way.
Lauren's best friend Kelly is a great support and I like her sarcastic, tell it like it is, side. Another character I liked, although this isn't a live character, is Lauren's grandmother's house she inherited back in that small town. I think this house is a major player in the story.Read more ›
Some of the incidents were contrived, and I wish Lauren had had a change of heart due to something internally and not because of an external incident. All in all, even with these problems, I really loved the story. I always love a good romance, and Small Town Girl has that in spades.
I enjoyed reading this book. There weren't many grammatical errors, and the story flows smoothly. The author is good at giving just enough detail to visualize the scenes without going overboard, and the characters are well developed, though predictable. I had to laugh through some of the intimate scenes though. Lines such as "he knelt at the altar of her desire", and "burying that manifestation of his passion deep into her sweetest niche" had me laughing out loud. The ending felt a bit rushed, even one or two chapters more would have been enough to make it more satisfying. An overall fun an easy read.
Great characters (especially Caleb!) and a satisying resolution. My only quibble is how quickly it ended --- an short epilogue would have been welcomed. The tacked-on teaser of another book was a disappointment, when I believed there was more original story left.
