Series: Sultry Springs book 3
Author: Macy Beckett
Leah McMahon is back in Sultry Springs, Texas to help her dad recover from surgery. But there’s a new sheriff in town and he’s none other than Colton Bea, the wild-as-weeds boy who stole her heart a decade earlier. Colt’s a changed man now and the feelings between these high school sweethearts are stronger than ever. But Leah’s got a secret so devastating that he may never forgive her. Can she find a way to earn absolution and build a future with the sultry man she’s loved half her life?
In the past Colt was the good old boy, the flirt and the ‘go to’ guy for a fun time. After a one night-stand gone wrong ran him down with her Ford Taurus, he now sees his behavior as reckless, arrogant and stupid and for the last couple of years has lived life quietly.
Leah McMahon has been gone from Sultry Springs, TX for 10 years and as far as the town knows she broke her daddy’s heart when she left and never came back… until now. She’s back to take care of her dad after open-heart surgery. From the interactions between Leah and her dad Pastor Mac we learn why she left. I agree it’s a WHOPPER of a reason and poor Colt is in for a shocker. I hesitate to say too much in my review because I don’t want to give anything away but as always Macy Beckett and her story telling drew me in and made me laugh and cry. She took my breath away and made me feel the longing, sorrow and regret that both Leah and Colt felt over their decisions. I will say that I got my HEA and in my opinion that’s what makes reading romance books worth while!
The supporting cast in this series has always been exceptional… it was great to catch glimpses of June and Luke from book 1 (they are having a baby!! YAY) I loved that we were able to be at the Welcome Home party for Bobbi and Trey, the leading characters from book 2. Throw in Colt’s sister and niece and Leah’s best-friend, Rachel, who is NOT Colton’s biggest fan and Colt’s granddaddy Judge Bea and watch the sparks fly! This is the 3rd and final book in the series… I was sad to see this come to an end. I feel like I had made life-long friends with the Sultry Springs residents and I know that I will follow Macy Beckett for a long time to come!
