Recommended by: 2nd book in the Stepp Sisters series.
From the Back Cover: This can’t be happening
Is he flirting with me? I must be imagining things. Why would Mason Sweet, the gorgeous mayor of Millbrook, Maine, the man I’ve secretly been in love with since the seventh grade, flirt with me? He’s the town golden boy, and I’m, well, the local librarian. The Stepp sister who stayed close to home. The one who bakes brownies…then eats them all. My thighs make that whick-whick-whick sound in pantyhose. He can’t possibly be flirting with me. So why is he giving me that melt-you-where-you-stand look? Why is he pulling me close? And what is he whispering in my ear?
Sorry, could you repeat that? Now I’m hearing things, because I swear Mason just asked me if I’d like to…well, he wasn’t asking for a book recommendation, let’s put it that way. Oh my, my, my. Okay, Ellie, stop blushing like a teenage girl. I’m sure he didn’t mean it. Maybe I should just alphabetize something. Be the good girl everyone expects. Eat another brownie. Forget this ever happened. So why is it I can’t stop myself from saying, “Yes….”
My Thoughts: This is the second book in the Stepp Sisters trilogy by Kathy Love, and I liked it even better than the first one. There was just a sweetness about this story that I found myself crying, a lot. There were also points in the story where the hero tried to push the heroine away by being cruel which caused me to cry also. The story was a wow for me.
I’d rate this a Very Good read. I look forward to reading the last book in the trilogy: Wanting Something More.
