This is Book 1
in the Cedar Point series!
Release Date: July 20, 2020
SYNOPSIS: Ruby Roberts is heading to Cedar Point to connect with the father who left her behind. A handsome stranger on her cross-country flight isn’t what she’s expecting, but their relaxed smiles and easy conversation leaves free-spirited Ruby wanting something… more. Boyd Mitchell is flying home for some end-of-summer relaxation and time with his favorite people – his family. A talkative seat-mate that pulls him out of his carefully crafted shell is the last thing he wants, but he can’t seem to resist her charm. When Boyd and Ruby end up in the same lakeside town, their banter and flirtation quickly become a steamy fling that leaves them both breathless. Neither of them are expecting to find a romance that has them both reconsidering everything they believe about love. As their time in Cedar Point comes to an end, the two will have to decide whether they want their connection to turn into a real-world relationship, or whether wanting more is nothing but trouble.
Review: I sincerely love when an author can make me go from not really feeling a character to being absolutely in love with them. I wouldn’t say I didn’t like Boyd in the beginning, but the airplane scene didn’t really make me like him that much as a male character. I’m all about male leads that are super into the female leads, and he was so standoffish. What’s interesting though is that I think he was super into her, but he’s so stuck in his ways that he can’t get past that. This total coincidence only happens in a romance, but it was so perfect! I also really appreciate the journey these to go on and the growth they both experience together. Something I really love about Jillian Liota‘s books is that there’s always this realness to the characters that makes them so relatable. Ruby is so heavily impacted by her past experiences and Boyd is so understanding when it comes to everything she’s dealt with. He sticks around and that makes him so much more amazing as a male lead. Seriously, Boyd’s growth as a character is what won me over in this on. Ruby and Boyd come from completely different families which also impacts how they interact with each other. And when we meet Boyd Mitchell’s family, it definitely makes me wanna know all about them! I’m very excited to dive into the series and see what happens all of his siblings in Cedar Point.
