About the Author
Growing up every summer in a place where dancing and romancing are literally part of its theme song, Liz Kelly can't help but be a romantic at heart. And since her favorite author, Kathleen E. Woodiwiss wrote some of the world's greatest romances, she's just trying to give the world a little more of that. (Okay, maybe a little sexier that, but we are now in a new millennium after all.) A graduate of Wake Forest University, where she met her handsome golf-addicted husband, (who is now sporting dark glasses everywhere he goes) Liz is a mother of two grown sons (also sporting dark glasses) and a miniature Labradoodle named Isabelle. They live in the Fountain of Youth, a.k.a. Naples, FL where dancing and romancing continues on ad infinitum.

Mr. Lawrence prefect job in the narration of this book, he really brings the characters to life. You could feel the pain, confusion, love, lost, happy, sad and angry in his voice which really make it more realistic for me. If any breaks where taken you cannot tell, the volume stayed nice and even with no places where it was higher or lower than others. You have no trouble understanding what each character is feeling or who is talking. He has wonderful character voices from his female to his male. I thought his voice was very contemporary to the characters and the story line giving each character just the right touch with emotion, tone, volume as he gives a wonderful compelling listen. He has a wonderful voice that you have no trouble listening to for hours. I found things to do so I could listen long and was disappointed when the story came to an end. I am very much looking forward to listening to his narration in the rest of this series.
The author gives you a wonderful story you have no trouble relating to as she spells a very believable tale of a women coming home to do a projects for college and the cops who needs her help one who has loved her from a far for many years the other a playboy who needs to learn how to be friends first and lovers last. This cause much conflict between them, their friends and family.
Brooks and Vance are best friends Brook has always had the lovely Lolly in his sights for many years but with her being his sisters best friend and years younger he decided she might need some growing before he took matters into his own hands. Once seeing her again after so many years he is more than ready to stake his claim. Vance being the love them leave them kind of guy full of one night stands with women he can’t stand needs a little help learning not only to pick the correct type of women but to maybe get to know her first before jumping into bed. He is a big flirt with all the right moves to move a women right into his bed no questions ask. I thought I would die laughing as he gives pointers to Brook and where get got all his information from. There were times I really wanted to shake Brook for always trying to do the right thing he is always the good cop. I truly understood where Vance was coming from with Lolly being the first women he really ever got to know it isn’t hard to believe he would fall hard and fast for her. Things do get a little heated and out of control with them which really puts a hurting on poor old Brook. It is any ones guess whether he will take this laying down or if he will get the balls to fight back. Little old Lolly is stuck right in the middle trying to love them both in different ways it is any ones guess who she will fall for if either she is just home for the summer looking for a hot fling. It really doesn’t look good for either one of them. There is heartbreak in this story that will really pull on your heart. There will be times you will just want to set and cry for one or the other. Each are just plain stupid at times for not seeing things and asking too much of one person. Most of all you will laugh yourself silly at the wonderful plots this author brings to the story. Each character is better than the last keeping you smiling from Lolly’s mother to Vance’s father and all of them in between they are just cute and at times very funny. Just wait until you meet Vance’s grandmother and the things that come out of her mouth will may you die laughing. There were places I just about wet myself laughing so hard.
If you are looking for a light funny read that keeps you entertained with a wonderful plot and characters you will fall totally in love with you have found it. I do hope you will pick up this audio or at least this book. This looks to be a wonderful outstanding series I can’t wait to sink my eyes in again. Oh yes watch out for those handcuffs LOL.
and now she's home for the summer and he's determined to make his move, until his best friend decides he wants her too. Sparks fly while he battles drunkenness, jealousy and stiff competition from his playboy buddy Vance, so who will Lolly choose? It's a rollicking good time with steamy sexual tension and utter chaos you won't want to miss in this hilarious small town summer romance.
Brooks has loved Lolly for as long as he can remember. He is hoping her return for the summer could be their beginning and he can convince her to stay in Henderson. Vance is a play boy and has no idea how to be friends with a woman nor how to have a serious relationship. He sees Lolly as a woman who can tell him where he is going wrong. Brooks would do almost anything for Vance, a true bromance, but this is starting to be a love triangle when he wants Lolly for himself. Lolly's mother is throwing in a few curve balls and Lolly is finding it difficult to cope with all the changes, information, and depth of feelings she is experiencing. Brooks' ex also decides to return to Henderson before Brooks and Lolly can identify their relationship.
Brooks Bennet and Vance Evans were sports heroes of the town, but they have opposite styles when it comes to romance... One's the good cop, and the other is the bad cop. (They're actualy cops too) They need an impartial referee on which way works better, and who better than their best female friend, Lorelei "Lolly" DuVal, the little girl that always followed them around since when they were young? Except Lolly ain't so small anymore... Lolly wanted a fling that "lights her fire" (figuratively, of course!) and teaching two delectable cops about romance sounds like a great idea... at first. But as Lolly falls for both, and both cops started to back off for each other, it'd be up to Lolly to pick a winner... for her heart.
Funny AND poignant, as it's as much about friendship (and sacrifice) as it is about love, with a lot of quiet chuckles and amusements. There are no cheap laughs here.
