Thank you to NetGallery for this ARC. I really loved Livy Hart’s Planes, Trains and All the Feels, which came out this summer, so I jumped at the chance to read this book. Another enemies to lovers story, it has all the elements that I loved from Planes: cheeky best friends, supportive siblings, and vulnerable MCs who were willing to allow themselves to grow.

Mia is a preschool teacher, born and raised in the small town of Avondale, Georgia. After being basically left at the altar by her high school sweetheart, she is trying to jump back into the dating pool and find her soulmate. Alex is a management consultant who is on the fast track, he doesn’t stay in places long and he isn’t into relationships. After a disastrous first date, Mia and Alex decide it will be best if they never see each other again, but the joys of small town life mean they keep running into each other and each time, the attraction they can’t seem to hide, grows.

Livy Hart writes excellent steamy books, though she always makes me nervous people are going to find the MCs In flagrante !! Her characters are dealing with everyday issues and are extremely relatable (aging parents, work/life balance, money struggles, deep love of Benihana and shots). At this point, I will happily read anything she writes!
