It's Where The Heart Lies
She remembered staring at the flag, thinking about its thirteen symbolic folds... and the sixth fold is for where the heart lies...
Liam only intended to help Alicia get settled. But one unexpected kiss awakens his long-held forbidden feelings. Soon, the town busybodies swoop in to warn Alicia away from him. Because no matter the man he's become, he'll never live down his reputation as town troublemaker and wolfish womanizer.
No one wants the war hero's sweet widow and the supposedly former bad boy together. But the more everyone tries to keep them apart, the closer he and Alicia get. And the more determined Liam is to prove he's a changed man. Will it be enough to convince Alicia to let a new love in her life?
Romance on the softer side for readers who enjoy a more predictable, mainstream read. Light sprinkles of romance wrapped into a story of a military wife living through her loss made this book a good read.
Flye created flawed but lovable characters in an enjoyable story. There are moments that will tug at reader's hearts, moments when you are cheering the heroine on and moments when you want to tell others to let her live her own life. How the heroine survives with such grace through a series of letdowns is telling of her strength. And giving the hero an enigmatic history adds greater interest.
However, there are no true exciting moments. What I believe is intended to be the big secret doesn't seem to make as many waves as it could because everything resolves so nicely. Readers will feel good and happy about this story... it made me smile.
