5 LITTLE THIEF STARS
I ABSOLUTELY ADORED THIS BOOK!!
I listened to this in audio and not only was the narration brilliant but it brought the characters, emotions and feelings to life, I was completely captivated and caught up in Rynna and Rex's story.
The book begins with Rynna moving back home to her Grandmother's house with a plan to take over her legacy as the local baker. Rynna was a victim in her childhood of bullying and torment. A sick and twisted joke broke her to the point that she fled and moved away leaving her Grandmother who she loved dearly and had been her only relative.
Single dad Rex, well, all I can say about Rex is, his bark is definitely worse than his bite and I wouldn't of minded his bite. Rex comes across at first as the guy with a chip on his shoulder, the silent brooding type and rude but put him in the company of his little girl Frankie and he's as sweet as one of Rynna's apple pies and oh what a turn on that was.
“All moments matter. We just rarely know how important they are until the chance to act on them has already passed.”
From the moment neighbors, Rex and Rynna meet there is instant chemistry, Rex instantly hates her for giving him feelings he thought he had not only buried but would never feel again.
Two people with hurts in their past, Rynna is a woman wanting to move on and put her past behind her, face her fears now she is back in her childhood town and then you have Rex who can't let his past go, still living in his hurt and anger with the center of his world Frankie his only joy. One willing to be brave and another struggling to take a chance.
A beautiful romance with a beautiful outcome and eta. Show me the way is the kind of story that has you thinking that maybe some things do happen for a reason and those reasons bring people together.
A recommended heartfelt romance, brilliantly written with a great balance of emotions and hotness. Told in first person dual pov and leads to a hea. Can be read as a stand-alone.
This is my third five star read from this author and I cannot wait to read more. A.L Jackson fulfills what I look for in a romance read every time.
