It’s summertime in Cottonbloom, where two lovers find themselves at a crossroads just as things start to heat up. . .
Regan Lovell grew up on the wealthy Mississippi side of Cottonbloom—and now, as mayor, she’s determined to save it from the fate of so many small towns. Part of her plan to help the local economy is the Labor Day tomato festival. If only she wasn’t being undermined by Sawyer Fournette, who’s planning a crayfish-themed celebration on the Louisiana side of the river on the very same weekend. The pranks and sabotage are getting out of hand, and she’s had it with him—no matter how much she enjoyed those stolen hours in his truck bed, so many years ago…
Sawyer knows that Regan's never forgiven him for breaking her heart—but despite his reputation as a low-class swamp rat, he’d never hurt the woman who still secretly drives him crazy with desire. Someone in Cottonbloom has it out for her, though, and Sawyer intends to watch her back…and the rest of her too, if she can ever let go of her distrust. But will a common enemy be enough to unite them—and finally fulfill the promises they made one passionate night under the stars?

I have to admit that I went into Till I Kissed You with a pretty good idea of how things were going to turn out. What I didn't know is what the road would be like to get there. Ms. Trentham lays out an interesting journey for Regan and Sawyer. They have past hurts and misunderstandings to deal with along with current animosities.
If there were ever two people meant to misunderstand each other it's these two! They are constantly on different pages of the same book! Honestly, the sheer number of miss cues between our main characters is what kept this from being a 4 star read for me - it really seemed like it happened one too many times and they kept taking turns getting their feeling hurt by the other. If you've read the other Cottonbloom novels, you will definitely enjoy the trip back to town.
Till I Kissed You in an excellent conclusion to the story lines we've been following since the first book. The characters are all well written and a lot of fun. There is humor, romance, friendship, brotherhood, and lots of warm and fuzzies through out.
