Series: Private Pleasures Book 4
Welcome back to Bluelick, KY. I love this series by Samanthe Beck. She has this knack to blending the snarky banter with the steamy scenes that I can’t get enough of. Roxy and West do not have the best meeting because of the nature of it, but each and every scene after that is a well written realistic emotional moment that you don’t want to stop. Roxy has been through a lot the last three years, and when she opens up you want to cry because of this strength that she has shown. She has no one left in her life to help her out, and the people of Bluelick envelope her into their lives without question. West has been in town for a little while, and is a little bit jaded by his past work. He moved to Bluelick for a change of pace, and it has been working. Then he meets Roxy and his world is titled on it’s axis a little bit. There are moments that you want to smack West because of the way he acts but at the same time you can understand where he is coming from. There are so many times you just want to wrap Roxy up into a hug because she is tired and looking for that place in her life for her to belong. You get to check in with he previous couples in this series. There are so many wonderful moments in this book and Beck continues to give me laugh out loud moments that break up those serious moments as well.
