LEAVE THE NIGHT ON
Cottonbloom #4
Laura Trentham
Releasing Aug 1, 2017
St. Martin's Press
 
 
Love, betrayal, and sweet revenge--life in Cottonbloom is about to get a whole lot hotter . . .

Sutton Mize is known for lavishing attention on the customers who flock to her boutique on the wealthy side of her Mississippi town. So when she finds a lace thong in her fiance's classic cherry-red Camaro, she knows just who she sold it to: her own best friend. In an instant, Sutton's whole world goes up in flames. . .

Wyatt Abbott has harbored a crush on Sutton since he was a young kid from the other side of the tracks. He witnessed Sutton's shocking discovery in the Camaro at his family-owned garage--and it made him angry. What kind of man could take lovely, gorgeous Sutton for granted? But then Sutton comes up with an idea: Why not give her betrothed a taste of his own medicine and pretend that she's got a lover of her own? Wyatt is more than happy to play the hot-and-heavy boyfriend. But what begins as a fictional affair soon develops into something more real, and more passionate, than either Sutton or Wyatt could have imagined. Could it be that true love has been waiting under the hood all along?
 


 
 
 

Jackson grabbed Wyatt's arm and forced him around. “You like her.”

 

Everyone likes her. She’s nice.”

 

I mean, you like like her. You have since we were kids—I’ve not forgotten how you walked around with cow eyes around her—and that kiss out front wasn’t pretend. You two nearly melted the asphalt.”

 

Jackson’s twin powers had veered sharply annoying. “I maybe, sort of like her. What’s wrong with that? She’s single; I’m single.”

 

She’s been single for less than a week. She’s using you.”

 

I’m using her too. In return for me squiring her around, she’s going to get her judge daddy to talk up the garage at the country club. Send some more projects our way to make up for the Camaro.”

 

That kiss was all a selfless act for the garage?” Jackson’s sarcasm was not appreciated.

 

Wyatt had to look away from his brother’s gaze which prompted a muttered curse from Jackson.

 

Do not fall for this woman, Wyatt. Whether she means to or not, she’s going to rip your heart into little pieces and feed it to the gators before she goes back to her old life.”

 

We’re not getting serious. In fact, we agreed that after I take her to the gala, it’s over.”

 

Jackson didn’t look pleased with the news. He looked worried. “As long as you don’t delude yourself into thinking it’s anything more than that. She’ll be back with Tarwater or someone like him by Christmas.”

 

Because the thought had already burrowed into his chest, Wyatt’s reaction was knee-jerk and defensive. “Someone like him?”

 

You know, sophisticated. Worldly. Rich. Well-connected. Well-groomed.”

 

Eff you,” Wyatt shot back, but there was little heat to it.


Jackson was right. “I’ve been told I clean up real nice.”

 

Jackson’s smile revealed his dimples. A rare sight since their pop had died last year. “Doesn’t count if it’s from a female relative over the age of sixty.”

 

 

 

 
 
An award-winning author, Laura Trentham was born and raised in a small town in Tennessee. Although, she loved English and reading in high school, she was convinced an English degree equated to starvation. She chose the next most logical major—Chemical Engineering—and worked in a hard hat and steel toed boots for several years.
 
 
She writes sexy, small town contemporaries and smoking hot Regency historicals. The first two books of her Falcon Football series were named Top Picks by RT Book Reviews magazine. Then He Kissed Me, a Cottonbloom novel, was named as one of Amazon’s best romances of 2016. When not lost in a cozy Southern town or Regency England, she's shuttling kids to soccer, helping with homework, and avoiding the Mt. Everest-sized pile of laundry that is almost as large as the to-be-read pile of books on her nightstand.

Fabulous Quick Read
Light Up the Night: A Cottonbloom Novel ... Light Up the Night: A Cottonbloom Novel - Laura Trentham

Light Up The Night by Laura Trentham is a fairly short read, a perfect choice for those with limited time for reading.  Ms Trentham has delivered a well-written book.  Thad and Sadie's story is a fast-paced book, full of suspense, drama, humor and sexy bits.  The characters in this book are terrific and my favorite part of the story.  I enjoyed reading Light Up The Night and look forward to reading more from Laura Trentham in the future.  Light Up The Night is book 3.75 in the Cottonbloom Series but can be read as a standalone.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

 

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book that I received from BookFunnel.

Candy Cane Christmas by Laura Trentham
Candy Cane Christmas (Cottonbloom) - Laura Trentham

I really enjoyed this book while I was reading it. But for some reason, the story didn't really stick with me. I can't put my finger on why exactly. The storyline was one that I had seen before, but it did have a few twists with the characters to make it a little different. Both Jeremey and Kayla were more of a rough around the edges type - which I thought was unusual to see in both characters.

It just wasn't memorable enough to stand out from the field of Christmas romances out there this time of year.

What a sweet little Holiday story this was.

Jeremy Whitehurst has left his troubled past and bad boy ways behind him in Alabama. Now working as a mechanic in Cottonbloom, Louisiana he lives a quiet and low-key lifestyle that suits him just fine.

Kayla Redmond has made more than her fair share of bad decisions. Getting involved with an abusive man left her hurting and guarding her heart. Now all she is focused on is her future as a bookkeeper. Fate has other plans for Kayla when her new job at Fournette Brothers Designs places her right in the path of the man who saved her from her abusive ex.

With Christmas fast, approaching can these two damaged and weary souls find the strength to take a chance on love again??

I adored this novella. It's SUPER short but packed with sweet moments and tons of feel good moments. Both characters were likable. The writing was fantastic and flowed nicely. It had a nice cast of side characters (this was my first Cottonbloom book, but won't be my last.) I wasn't lost reading this one, but I assume you get more background on these two characters in the full-length novels about the other characters. In fact (IMO) this one would have made a great full-length novel.

My only small complaint is that I wish it would have had a better epilogue. Perhaps we will hear more about this couple in future books? Overall, though, a fantastic Holiday novella to add to your "TO READ" list.

Kiss Me That Way: A Cottonbloom Novel
Kiss Me That Way: A Cottonbloom Novel - Laura Trentham
Monroe shared things in her life with Cade, which she has never told anyone else. He was consistently there for her growing up just as he was there for his family without fail. Spending time with her was always a welcome respite from his burdens. She was from the rich side of the river. She had a nice house and money but lacked security and love. He was from the poor side. He had to quit school and work several jobs just to provide for his younger brother and sister. He had real love but lived in constant fear of not being able to take care of everyone. This has a little bit of the feel of a second chance at romance because Cade moved away and has come back, but it isn't. They were never lovers. Although, they do have a very close bond, and there is no denying the heat between them now.

Kiss Me That Way is set mostly in a southern small town right on the Mississippi Louisiana border. Several quirky characters bring charm and humor to the story. It was a fun, easy read for me and made me smile often. If you're looking for sweet and sexy with a down to earth cast, check this one out.
