This is book #2, in the Starving For Southern series. This story can be read as a standalone novel. For reader enjoyment, and to avoid spoilers, I recommend reading this great series in order.
Lexi is making her way as a small business owner in her small town. She is gaining notoriety for the pies, even though she has always been known for them locally. She has been in love with Bryan all her life, but he does not seem to know she exists anymore. He has not been home in a decade.
Bryan is trying to outrun a past filled with pain and heartache. The best way to do that is to stay away. Football is the one thing he does right, and he does well. It has made him well known and feel as if he is deserving of Lexi. The questions is if he does something about it how will she respond?
This was such an amazing story! Filled with a slow burn, it was like a match lit early on and then somewhere along the way caused the heat to just explode! I loved reading about these characters and their journey. Both very rich and compelling characters as people, watching from my view felt like a privilege. Their book was honestly really good and I could not put this one down. I give this read a 5/5 Kitty's Paws UP!
