Love So True by Marquita Valentine - FMR REVIEW

TITLE: Love So True (The Lawson Brothers, #2)
AUTHOR: Marquita Valentine
RELEASE DATE: January 29, 2015
Finally, Lucas Lawson is a free man. After serving five years in prison for embezzlement, he’s come home to Jessamine to right the wrongs he committed against his friends and family. But, it won’t be easy. For starters, the brother he’s looked up to his entire life wants nothing to do with him, and no one in town trusts Lucas enough to give him a chance to make amends. Until, Bailey Yates gives him a job at her family’s diner.

Single mom, Bailey Yates, has had enough of bad boys to last her the next eighteen years. She’s always been a sucker for them, and Jessamine’s ultimate bad boy, Lucas Lawson, is no exception. So, when he returns to town, naturally she’s drawn to him. And naturally, she must avoid him at all costs—no matter how sexy he is. She’ll give him a job, and keep her distance…until Lucas saves her son from a hit and run.

Bailey gives Lucas a hope for the future he hasn’t allowed himself to feel in years while Lucas melts Bailey’s heart every time he spends time with her son. Could he be the one to put her life back together? But when Lucas is accused of stealing from a local charity, Bailey must decide to support him or realize that some men are too good to be true.

This is a story about second chances. In your life, with love, with family. You hope and pray that they will one day forgive you. Hope. Hope that you deserve love and that future that you wish for, regardless of your past. Then the tough question becomes, how much do you have to prove to make things rights, to prove to people that you aren't that same man anymore? And shouldn't your family stick by you no matter what? Yes, what you did was wrong, but you paid the price and now trying to get your life back on track. 

I liked this book but it just didn't do too much for me. It was a cute second chances romance.
