Angst. Betrayal. Cliffhanger. Anguish.
This is not that kind of book.
From the first words, you know this one's going to be different.
Small town - check
Awkward female lead - check
Hot male lead - check
Sassy, fun characters - check
M. Mabie brings it all together in this book. Whether it's the father creating new nicknames for the hot lead (things like Van, instead of Vaughn, and one of my favorites, Astro), or Vaughn getting all sensitive and pissy over Mutt's nickname (because, let's be serious, who wants to be called Mutt - no matter how long it's been).
Fun, funny and sexy - an all-around perfect blend of setting, characters and dialogue that makes you want to find this town and chat up all the friends you just made.
When a Vaughn Renfro comes to town, he doesn't know what 'everyone knows' about her. He just meets a young lady who's kind, neighborly and easy on the eyes, and perhaps his first friend in the town he plans to make his home.
In this delightfully understated romance by Author M Mabie, there's a notable absence of many of the over used tropes of the genre. There's no millionaires or billionaires, no rock gods or country singers, no mafiosos, no bikers, not even any ruggedly handsome cowboys. Just an everyday guy who meets an (almost) everyday girl, and a small act of kindness that springboards into a friendship.
Not being a local, Vaughn sees Mutt simply as who she really is, unhindered by the expectations of what 'everyone knows', and in simply being that guy, becomes someone with whom she can share all of the things that everyone never really knew in the first place, and it certainly doesn't hurt that she doesn't have to worry about whether he's actually related to her or not.
Of course, like any couple anywhere, they have their challenges to overcome as their relationship progresses, but again, in a story devoid of the high drama of kidnappings and car wrecks, even that is beautifully mundane, highlighting the wonders that can be found in everyday life, a life that suddenly seems so much richer simply because someone else wants to be part of it with you.
I loved this book. It made me laugh, it made me cry, it made my heart hurt with sympathy and my face smile with happiness, and left me wondering who could possibly up next in City Limits book two.
I I love the small town feel of it and the characters that lived in that town.
Hannah has lived there all her life and works at the mechanic shop her dad owns. Her mom left them at a young age so it's only been her and her dad and Dean the other man she works with who she has known all her life and her dad took him in because he had no dad.
New to town Vaughn is a dentist who will be working in the local dentist office. He bought the old house in town that needs lots of renovations. Because he had some trouble with his car he took it to the local shop where he knew Hannah worked because he met her the night before. Knowing he would need some help on his house Hannah stopped at Vaughn's house to give him and hand and they became fast friends only being friendly with each other isn't the only thing they wanted.
Vaugh is just getting out of a relationship with his ex girlfriend of two years and Hannah is afraid of commitment and not used of men liking her so these feelings she is having are new to her.
Vaughn makes it known to Hannah that he really likes her and wants to be with her and she opens up and tells him the same thing and they begin a beautiful relationship.
Hannah is strong! She's beautiful, smart and determined. She's outgoing and very lovable but is so feisty that she doesn't take s*** from anyone and tells you what's on her mind.
Vaughn is smart, handsome, funny and super charming. He's a wonderful man looking for somewhere lay his roots down and someone to do it with. He loves with his whole heart and Hannah is blindsided when his heart wants her.
I loved the banter and friendship Hannah and Vaughn have and I love how open they are with each other.
This was such a sweet story and was written well.
What are you waiting for? This adorably sexy small town romance is only one-click away.
