Welcome to my stop for Lia Riley’s new contemporary romance title. The first in a new series, I was so excited to read this title! I’ve just discovered one of her New Adult series via audiobook, and I loved it.

Last First Kiss
Already familiar with Lia Riley’s writing, the opportunity to dive into this title was an exciting one for me. I enjoy her writing and was curious to see what she would do with this new series. And I was NOT disappointed in the least! I could go and stay, happily in Brightwater for a while.
A second chance at romance appears with Annie’s return to Brightwater to get the family farm into sale shape, and then head back out to anywhere without looking back. Being away with her own things to do and deal with, Annie has had some success with her blog if not always with life. Newly divorced with a five year old, she has returned to her hometown, the site of some fairly bad memories.
Sawyer is still in town, and while they didn’t date in high school – their friendship ended too with a horrible misunderstanding. He’s that California boy with a touch of Southern Gentleman’s charm, a solid protective sense, is gainfully employed as a cop, and he still has the power to make Annie look twice.
These two are wonderful together: he’s patient and willing to listen, and allow her to make mistakes on the way to finding the right choices. Witty, great banter and several funny moments (a post it on a chicken pot pie, the cow) the story has heart and humor and that little bit of something that Riley brings to her characters that makes them people you want to know. Another great title to add to your summer reading list – this one will leave you smiling and happy.

A kiss is just the beginning…
Pinterest Perfect. Or so Annie Carson’s life appears on her popular blog. Reality is... messier. Especially when it lands her back in one-cow town, Brightwater, California, and back in the path of the gorgeous six-foot-four reason she left. Sawyer Kane may fill out those wranglers, but she won’t be distracted from her task. Annie just needs the summer to spruce up and sell her family’s farm so she and her young son can start a new life in the big city. Simple, easy, perfect.
Sawyer has always regretted letting the first girl he loved slip away. He won’t make the same mistake twice, but can he convince beautiful, wary Annie to trust her heart again when she’s been given every reason not to? And as a single kiss turns to so much more, can Annie give up her idea of perfect for a forever that’s blissfully real.
