New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author, Marquita Valentine, writes sexy heroes that make you swoon and sassy heroines that make you laugh. She's the author of the bestselling contemporary romance series, Holland Springs, and the new adult romance series, Boys of the South.
Marquita met her husband aka Hot Builder at Sonic when they were in high school. She suggests this location to all of her single friends in search of a good man--and if that doesn't work, they can console themselves with cheesy tatertots. She lives in North Carolina in a very, very small town with Hot Builder and their two children.

5 out of 5 stars!! Follow this sweet and spicy romance between a girl who has been in love with her best friend's older brother for just about all of her life and see if it's truly unrequited love or not. It's hard not to get wrapped up in this love story; the main characters are just that captivating. Plus, the sex scenes were a fun and entertaining inclusions too.
Carter & Melanie were one couple that I loved reading about and couldn't get enough of, so I hope they'll be secondary characters in the other books within this series. For the secondary characters in this novel the ones that stood out and all I have to say about them are:
* Zoe: Melanie's best friend. Carter's sister. A writer who has a big secret she's keeping about her time in Los Angeles. I can't wait to read her story!
* Leah: Carter & Zoe's mother. Very old fashioned and set in her ways. Isn't a fan of Melanie, disapproves of Zoe's friendship with Melanie, and doesn't want Melanie involved with any of her sons. Like's April and wants her to get back together with Carter.
* April: Carter's ex-fiancée. She is the quintessential bad girl and trying to win Carter back by any means necessary. Uses her "friendship" with Leah to get on Carter's good-side and/or because she knows Leah will assist her in getting Carter to go back to her. She was the type of character you love to hate, so I don't think I'll be reading her story.
All in all, I adored this novel! I recommend it to anyone who likes contemporary romances that have an erotic touch to it.
