Angel Sinclair arrives in Pine Bluff, Alabama with one goal: make amends and move on. But his chance meeting with the beautiful owner of Sleep Inn on the Lake lands him a job, a place to stay, and something else he hasn’t had for years in his life: love and trust.
Still reeling from a bitter divorce, Maggie Robertson is determined to start over as proprietress of a new bed and breakfast. Getting involved with anyone in this gossipy small town is not on her to-do list—especially someone closer to her son’s age than her own.
When she opens the door to find the dreadlocked and tattooed Angel on her porch, her quiet life and preconceived notions are turned upside down. Maggie’s self-confidence soars under his undivided attention. Angel is drawn by Maggie’s quiet acceptance…and he can’t stop staring at her ass.
But Angel’s fondness for Maggie’s company is topped only by his penchant for keeping secrets, which leads Maggie to wonder if she has it wrong. Perhaps age differences do matter, opposites should not be allowed to attract, and love does not conquer all—even if it’s written on the wall.
5 STARS In the third book of the Pine Bluff Series, Ms Cain does an impeccable job of giving us wonderfully layered characters that I dare you to not fall for. This journey is yet another beautiful affirmation that none of us are the sum of our past mistakes. I adored every second of this read and it gave me all the feels. I have loved this series, but this book is by far my favorite. This is absolutely a must read. This is a series I will personally reread many times over. — The Book Avenue
