Book Description: Lila Mae Guidry is a Southern girl through and through. As a fourth-generation Latter-day Saint in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, she’s proud of her heritage as both a Southerner and a Saint—and she doesn’t take kindly to people who disparage either. Ten years ago, Max Archer was just that kind of jerk. As the mission president’s son, Max spent his entire three years mocking the South . . . and teenage Lila. After Max’s family moved away, Lila forgot about her sworn enemy. Almost.
When a new job brings a grown-up Max back to Baton Rouge, Lila is less than thrilled with his reappearance, especially since everyone seems intent on throwing her together with this old adversary. Yet fight as she may, Lila soon realizes resistance is futile—their connection is undeniable. Max embodies everything she wants in a man—except perhaps the most important thing—her life is rooted in the city she loves, but his dreams are bigger than Baton Rouge. With such mismatched visions of the future, Max and Lila are faced with a life-altering decision: jeopardize their aspirations or risk losing love.
My thoughts: Unfortunately I have not finished the book and this post is due. The book will be given a full review as soon as I finish it.
My thoughts so far on the book. I love the voice. Lila has a lot of spunk and she is a fun character to read about. She loves her home and family and does not take kindly to others not appreciating Baton Rouge. She is a Southern Girl with Southern Manners. Once she has her mind made up it is hard to look at people or circumstances differently.
Max has learned that you can't make a first impression again. He has grown into a wonderful man and wants to redeem his past.
I am loving the book so far and feel that it will receive a great rating. I have enjoyed the stories that I have read by Melanie Jacobson in the past, so my expectations are high.
