Small Town Scandal is written in male POV, and Ms. Prescott excels at this storytelling feature, but this book is just as much the hero's as it is the heroine's. On the surface, Carter seems like a cocky self-assured guy with no worries, yet underneath that exterior, lies a man with a heart of gold who sacrifices for his family. At a first glance, Ashley is seen as the island Jezebel, but she's a smart, career woman who owns her sexuality. Both main characters hold their vulnerabilities close - Carter doesn't feel he is good enough for Ashley and Ashley uses her sexuality as a defense mechanism to keep out emotions. These two have a lot to rediscover about one another, and Ms. Prescott has created a patient, hero who sees and excepts Ashley as she is - a passionate woman with a heart of fire.
The banter between Carter and Ashley is perfection. At first they are like are like porcupines when they are in the vicinity of each other - their quills come out ready to fight and defend, but gradually, layers are peeled away and the reader is able to see these two underneath their tough exteriors.
This is the fifth installment in Ms. Prescott's Wingmen series and all of these books take place on Whidbey Island off the coast of Washington. I love how Ms. Prescott has made this island its own character in each of these books. I love settling down and taking another visit to this small-town island each time I pick up a book in this series. I enjoy seeing my favorite characters from previous books. The secondary relationships in this book are just as good as the romance. I love how close Erik and Carter are as brothers, how Dan gives out advice and how John is the peacemaker - all of these characters feel like old friends.
Even though each book in the Wingmen series are interconnected, they each can be read as a standalone book. Ms. Prescott has created a deep, character-driven romance mixed in with just the right amount of humor to keep the reader smiling - I mean who doesn't smile when the main character is a goat herder? There is just enough conflict, though, that the story never feels weighs down or contrived. It's just right. It's a beautiful love story which shows that everyone deserves a second chance at life, love and happiness. I can't wait to see who is the focus of the next book in this series!
Not my favorite of the series but still a good story.
I admit, I struggled with this book. Took forever for me to get into Ashley and Carter’s story. I think part of my problem was I just didn’t care for Ashley’s character. She was a part of the second book, Tom’s story, and her actions in that book just left a bad taste in my mouth.
She and Carter have history and a lot in common. Neither grew up in a great family. But both have loving and supportive siblings. They’ve loved each other since middle school but broke up in high school. They rarely spoke to each other, both going their separate ways. But living and working on a small island, it’s near impossible not to hear things or bump into each other.
Carter has decided he’s done being the screw up, its time to grow up, be an adult and to claim what should have always been his. Ashley.
It took me a long time to get into this book. It does pick up toward the second half, when Ashley finally starts letting down some of her protective walls, slowly letting Carter get closer to her heart. The story being told only from Carter’s point of view, I think hurt the story. I wanted a bit of Ashley’s POV.
It wasn’t a bad book, it was well written and in the end had a nice happily ever after, something they both needed. A lot of healing for both characters.
I look forward to the next book, hopefully Jonah’s story.
There is that smart humor that I simply adore sprinkled throughout this book. I was swooning at a heartfelt sentiment Carter conveyed one minute and then chuckling out loud at the one-liner he'd undoubtedly come up with next. His thoughts were the perfect counterbalance to Ashley's POV, which was often filled with self doubt and fierce comebacks to those on Whidbey Island who didn't always have the best opinion of her. But I really liked her spirit. Her determination to live her life the way she wanted, no matter what others may think of her. She is one tough cookie and is as fiery as her red hair. Getting inside her head a bit softened my opinion of her and how she handled things with Tom a few years back.
This is such a charming story and I loved how effortlessly the words flowed. However, there are also some difficult moments from Carter's and Ashley's past that rear its ugly head and threaten a possible present and future. But when they are together, nothing can seemingly stop the love that has clearly been fated for both of them since they were young. Carter and Ashley have a chemistry that is undeniable and there was plenty of steam between them to prove it. Nothing and no one will get in the way this time around, or so they hope. But with the help from so many beloved characters we've all come to cherish from previous books in the series, these two get the much needed push in the right direction.
There is something very special about this Wingmen story. I felt as if the author upped her game a bit and beautifully combined her signature wit with a sincerely tender second-chance romance that brought tears to my eyes more than once. Add to that a herd of adorable goats who steal the show more than once and you have one heck of a wonderful read.
A clear winner and exceptional addition to this series, Small Town Scandal is a 5 star must read perfect for a summer day.
