Leave The Night On ~ Laura Trentham ~ New Release and Review ~ 1000th Post!

Love, betrayal, and sweet revenge--
life in Cottonbloom is about to get a whole lot hotter . . .

Cottonbloom #4

Love, betrayal, and sweet revenge--life in Cottonbloom is about to get a whole lot hotter . . .

Sutton Mize is known for lavishing attention on the customers who flock to her boutique on the wealthy side of her Mississippi town. So when she finds a lace thong in her fiance's classic cherry-red Camaro, she knows just who she sold it to: her own best friend. In an instant, Sutton's whole world goes up in flames. . .

Wyatt Abbott has harbored a crush on Sutton since he was a young kid from the other side of the tracks. He witnessed Sutton's shocking discovery in the Camaro at his family-owned garage--and it made him angry. What kind of man could take lovely, gorgeous Sutton for granted? But then Sutton comes up with an idea: Why not give her betrothed a taste of his own medicine and pretend that she's got a lover of her own? Wyatt is more than happy to play the hot-and-heavy boyfriend. But what begins as a fictional affair soon develops into something more real, and more passionate, than either Sutton or Wyatt could have imagined. Could it be that true love has been waiting under the hood all along?

An award-winning author, Laura Trentham was born and raised in a small town in Tennessee. Although, she loved English and reading in high school, she was convinced an English degree equated to starvation. She chose the next most logical major—Chemical Engineering—and worked in a hard hat and steel toed boots for several years.

She writes sexy, small town contemporaries and smoking hot Regency historicals. The first two books of her Falcon Football series were named Top Picks by RT Book Reviews magazine. Then He Kissed Me, a Cottonbloom novel, was named as one of Amazon’s best romances of 2016. When not lost in a cozy Southern town or Regency England, she's shuttling kids to soccer, helping with homework, and avoiding the Mt. Everest-sized pile of laundry that is almost as large as the to-be-read pile of books on her nightstand.

In Leave the Night On We return to Cottonbloom, but get to meet a whole new family - the Abbots.

This well written story features the hallmarks that make the Cottonbloom series stand out. We have a sexy, somewhat underdog hero from the Louisiana side of town and a heroine from the upper crust Mississippi side.

Wyatt and Sutton seem like a unlikely couple when they come together under false pretenses, but they quickly discover real feelings.
I liked the set up and how things gradually shifted. There were a couple of small things I would have changed, but nothing crucial to the story. I think my favorite thing in this book was how Sutton discovered more about herself and renewed the relationship with her sister. I also appreciated the fact that her family was supportive of her.

If you are a regular Cottonbloom visitor, you will see some familiar faces and places. If you are new to town, that's okay too. While this is a continuation of the town's story, this is a completely independent story. This is the first significant time we have spent with the Abbot family, so it would be a good time to start the series.
