This unlikely getaway driver never expected to help the mayor escape…
After a six-year absence, Addison Potts is back in Charleston to stir things up. And what better place to make her villainous return than her estranged cousin’s wedding? Only, the nuptials hit a snag when the bride doesn’t show, leaving Addison to play getaway driver for the jilted groom. A groom whose heartbreaking smile and deep, southern drawl she should not be noticing…
Elijah Montgomery Du Pont is the future mayor of Charleston. From his military career to city hall, every detail of his life has been meticulously planned. Until now. His only respite from life’s sudden upheaval is Addison, his new, improbable best friend. She makes him happy. Grounds him. And public disapproval be damned, he’s not willing to give her up. But with an election on the line and public pressure rising, Addison—and the cruel hand of fate—might not give him a choice.
Why did I wait so long to read this? I adored this book and couldn’t get enough of Addison and Elijah. It takes place in the south and I was living for all southern sayings from Elijah. These two had amazing chemistry and their romance made me smile so damn much! My cheeks are still hurting while I’m typing this review. The way the interacted and cared for each other was so sweet to read about.
As we know, Tessa Bailey writes some of the steamiest dirty talk. I’m happy to say that she didn’t disappoint me here. Oh goodness, the dirty talk was so hot!
The next book is about Naomi and I’m curious to see how her story will go!

Day one in town proved one thing… I’m screwed.
Welcome to Mudville, home of KISSING BOOKS, a standalone small town, opposites attract, fish out of water romantic comedy with lots of kissing (and other things), a cocky farmer, a sassy misplaced heroine with too many animals, some crazy locals, a decades’ old mystery, and a very happy ending for all of them!
While this book had its moments, I can only say that it’s okay. It did give those small town feels that I was looking for and it even made me laugh quite a few times. However, I felt like the story dragged quite a bit at times. The relationship between Harper and Stone was okay, but I need to be honest and say that the chemistry wasn’t really there. I would have believed them to be more friends than lovers.
All in all, I have to appreciate a book that can make me laugh. This did that and gave that southern charm that I love. Everything else including the romance, I wasn’t crazy about it. I see that this is a series, but I’m going to call it quits with this one.
