Welcome to the South - where the tea is sweet and the accents are sweeter. This Southern way of life is all Charlie has ever known. It’s not until she loses the only person who pushed her to break free of the Southern Belle mold that she starts living the life she needs and not the life her parents forced on her.
Jhett has lived on the edge for as long as he could remember - constantly teetering back and forth between being a rock star and living a normal life. His rebellious and sometimes arrogant attitude is known to get him into trouble, especially with the girls who hang on his every move.
Charlie never thought that a trip to pack up her brother’s apartment would leave her feeling even more unsettled about the grainy details of her brother’s death. Her quest for information leads her straight to his old hangout and into arms of Jhett, who suspiciously knows more about her situation than he ever should.
Only a few questions remain - Can you trust someone based on their word alone? And if you make a promise, how far will you go to keep it?
A wonderful classic love story.
The story follows Charlie (Charlotte) who is having to deal with the recent passing of her twin brother Cameron. She is sent to California by her overbearing controlling mother to pack up her brother’s belongings and bring them back to Tennessee.
Charlie is a reserved, and naïve girl in the beginning, you watch her blossom and grow into her own person through the course of the story.
Jhett is described as a tattooed musician who likes to cook. He is not your typical bad boy rocker. He is sweet, loving and an all-around great guy. He was Cameron’s best friend and new quite a lot about Charlie before ever meeting her.
Wanting to learn more about her brother’s life in California leads Charlie to meet Jhett simply by accident. Her world is forever changed by this chance meeting. Jhett persuades Charlie to stay for the summer.
This book does have some drama, and ends on a cliff hanger. I can’t wait to read the novella companion to this story.
I would recommend this book to anyone who likes a sweet love story without all the graphic sex.
