Fakers is a sweet, funny book. There is quite a bit of over the top humor. When I was almost to the point where I was going to throw my kindle if there was one more Licking or Johnson or Thicket (or any combination of the three) joke, the authors eased off of them. Thank the gods, too, because I would have been heartbroken to miss the rest of this book.
I am a fan of stories set in small towns. I was not disappointed in Licking Thicket. The environmental descriptors were spot on, and I found myself transported into the South's thick, hot, mosquito-laden air. The townsfolk are portrayed accurately if a bit overly exaggerated. The town festival has some exciting and funny (and weird) scenes, and the amount of sweet tea consumed in this book almost gave me diabetes.
The story concept isn't a new one. Still, the authors built upon that and peppered a strong premise with exciting characters, outrageous humor, super-steamy sexy times, angst, familial disdain, and distrust and a baby. And let's not forget the cows that are absolutely everywhere and, oh yeah, a guest room in a tree.
The first time Brooks and Mal met was perfect. I melted reading that scene, and it only got better from there. I became invested in these two very quickly. Their passion and love are strong, and their HEA is believable and satisfying.
I could go on and on, but then I would take time from someone reading this when they could be rushing off to buy it.
I look forward to more from these authors.
I loved the Made Marian and Forever Wilde series by Lucy Lennox and May Archer's Love in O'Leary series (even though she had an awful overbearing mother in one of her books) so please don't discount these two authors because they do write terrific books. Just not this one.

Brooks returns home after 10 years away. Thinking his home town would be the same as when he was last there he goes back grudgingly. What he finds in Licking Thicket is that it is the same only different. It's still the same crazy small town but just like him it's also moved with the times. It's more welcoming now he's grown up. He can finally be himself there.
Mal goes to Licking to support his best friend. He knows small towns and he's not looking forward to it but he'll do anything to support his bestie as she's the only family he has. Same as Brooks, he finds it's how he remembered small towns to be but this one was accepting of who he is.
A lot of initial deception shall we say but an undeniable connection at the first meeting of Brooks and Mal starts this story off. Theres lots of heat they don't realise they're throwing off all over the place. It's an unthinkable circumstance they find themselves in but nothing or no one could stop it. Lots of fun ensues, soul searching, innuendos galore, bit of past angst on both their parts, off the scale chemistry and a love you'll want to hold onto.
I loved them both! Equally! So blooming sweet and funny and just swoooonnnn!! When these two were together my kindle nearly overheated. So perfect for each other! They made me so happy!
I loved the town so much, and all the folks in it. Every one of em i wanna know about. The Licking cow jokes gave me plenty of laughs and the angst gave me a few tears.
Brilliant story! I gotta admit at the start it took some getting into. I thought there was an overload of set up. I get that we were being introduced to a new town and series of characters but the beginning was a lot to take in and lost me a little. But as the story went on i got lost in Brooks and Mal. They kept me there with them and by the end i felt like a Thicketeer? One of the residents placing a bet! It felt like home.
Excited for book 2. Kinda glad i've come in late to the party to catch up!
An absolute joy to read, so many laughs, so many puns you could make, and a shedload of amazing, warm and loveable characters from a wacky, small town in Tennessee. I fell in love with Brooks and Malachi, Red Johnson and his family, General Partridge and his barbecue business and can only wait [patiently of course] for the next one in the Licking Thicket series...which must feature Diesel Church and Parrish Partridge [there's definitely a story there folks...].
Delightful and highly recommended. 😍😍😍
I really hope we get more books from these two
