Owen Dawson is one of Eastwood’s most eligible bachelors. He could have any woman he wants, but when it comes to settling down, he only has eyes for Charlie Williams, and he blew his chance with her years ago. While Owen is busy trying to convince everyone—and himself—that the playboy life is for him, Charlie is trying to put her life back together.
After discovering her fiancé was cheating on her, Charlie packs her bags, leaves her fancy New York job, and goes back to the one place she never thought she’d return to: home. Determined to start over and stay far, far away from men, the last thing Charlie needs in her life is her first love, Owen…and the old feelings that come rushing back the moment she lays eyes on him.
While Charlie swears to avoid romance of any kind, Owen is willing to do whatever it takes to prove he’s a changed man and win Charlie back…even if it means fighting dirty.
If you’ve seen my previous reviews for this series, then you know I’m completely invested in the Dawson family. And once again the Dawson Family unit is a character in and of itself that brings so much to the story. Their gatherings are full of chaos in the best way, I’d love to be apart of the mess. Readers get to see the charming and ridiculous antics of Owen in the first four books, and I was so looking forward to seeing him change his manwhore ways. The chemistry between Owen and Charlie is as hot as ever, and it made for one fun ride. His single-minded pursuit is just so appealing to me as a romance reader, but I also love how his confidence slips at times making him more realistic. I was just so happy at the end of this book, and I’d definitely recommend it!
Now my fellow Dawson family readers, have we started a petition for Dean’s divorce and new love story yet?! Why yes, that sounds like a horrible sentiment, but his wife has just kind of sucked in every book, and I just feel like Dean, being a Dawson, deserves so much more. Only time will tell if Emily Goodwin will give us all what we’re hoping for!
