Pepper Knight moved to Everland with the promise of a job. A job that was supposed to set her up for something better in life, a job that was the safe bet. Sadly, it was anything but because she finds out on her first day the offer has been rescinded. Feeling down on her luck she makes her way back to the house she’s renting and serendipitously runs into her new neighbor and one of Everland’s most eligible bachelors, Rhett Valentine. Sensing Pepper needs help he offers her a job walking the town’s dogs. She jumps at the chance to earn money, even if she’s wasting her NYU law degree, and more importantly, her fear of dogs.
Left jilted at the alter years ago, Rhett has no need for romance in his life. All he wants to do is open a pet rescue and stay out of the town’s gossip radar. All that changes when pepper moves onto Love Street. He’s immediately taken by her. She’s charming, beautiful, and a ball of contradictions he wants to unravel.
Of course when you’re not looking for love it just happens to find you. Pepper and Rhett concoct a plan that involves them not falling in love, a plan that states they’ll part ways when it’s time. Their relationship is only to be a fling. We all know what they say about the best laid plans though, and in this instance, it’s no different.
I absolutely loved these two. They have such amazing love and empathy for those around them. It just made sense that these two, no matter their differences, would find each other and fall in love. Then there’s Everland. I’m not a fan of small towns in regards to living in one. Like Pepper I’m a city girl at heart, but there’s just something about the wait Lia writes small town life that I just love. Everland has just the right amount of quirkiness to even out the drama.
It Happened on Love Street had be swooning over charming southerners and funny as hell Yankees. Lia created a world where it’s okay to be who you are and to find what you never thought you needed in the least likely of places. From nosy neighbors to the Scabble gang at the local dog park, you can’t help but fall in love with everything Everland. I’m anxiously awaiting the next book because I can’t wait to see what happens next.
That has little to no bearing on my review, except it made me laugh so hard that I HAD to include it. Which brings me to one need-to-know fact about my experience with It Happened on Love Street: I highlighted the hell out of this book.
I couldn’t stop. Typically, choosing what quotes to include in my review is fairly easy. There’ll be several I like, but only a couple that speak to me or underscore what I want to say. Sometimes, though, it’s harder—either because the words don’t quite match, or, as is the case here, there are too many great lines to choose from.
'When she looked at him, recognition sparked, like catching a glimpse of one’s reflection in a window.'
Not only did this book have words that made me want to share (which shouldn’t be surprising, really, since I’ve long been a fan of Lia Riley and her way of writing just works for me), but it also made me happy.
So, so happy. It’s a charming, quirky, utterly delightful small-town romance, one which comes jam-packed with all the things that make small-town romances one of my favorite things ever. Nosy neighbors, kooky characters, silly situations, and whimsical, romantic street names and town histories. Plus, it had Cupid.
“A quintessential coastal Southern town up front, with the sexy, scury-dog pirates in the back. Put like that, I can see the appeal.”
Oh, my apologies. Rhett. Rhett Valentine, who melted my heart *and* my panties with his animal-loving nature and his chimpanzee-cage-inducing swoon factor. When paired with Pepper—erstwhile law clerk, now dog-phobic dogwalker—he shines. They shine.
Their banter is light-hearted. Their feelings are deep. Their romance is somewhat predictable but wholly enjoyable, and as the foundation for Ms. Riley’s new series, it is absolutely on-point.
Yep, I’m incredibly excited about the future of Everland, Georgia—because I’m already hoping to highlight the hell out of a book about Beau and Tuesday...
“I didn’t know I’d been waiting. I didn’t know I’d been wanting. Convinced myself what I had was enough. But you, this, I’ll never get enough.”
