Brightwater Series Book #1
By: Lia Riley
Releasing June 23rd, 2015
Avon Romance

New to Avon author Lia Riley makes a splash with her first sexy, hilarious book in the sizzling Brightwater series!

A kiss is just the beginning…

Pinterest Perfect. Or so Annie Carson’s life appears on her popular blog. Reality is... messier. Especially when it lands her back in one-cow town, Brightwater, California, and back in the path of the gorgeous six-foot-four reason she left. Sawyer Kane may fill out those wranglers, but she won’t be distracted from her task. Annie just needs the summer to spruce up and sell her family’s farm so she and her young son can start a new life in the big city. Simple, easy, perfect.

Sawyer has always regretted letting the first girl he loved slip away. He won’t make the same mistake twice, but can he convince beautiful, wary Annie to trust her heart again when she’s been given every reason not to? And as a single kiss turns to so much more, can Annie give up her idea of perfect for a forever that’s blissfully real.

Review by: ERIN

This was a great second chance romance story. It is unbelievable how one misunderstanding affects so much of your life. I felt so bad for Annie. I too was that awkward kid. Her decision to marry basically the first person to show her any type of affection changes the course of her life yet again. She never got over Sawyer, but she never got over what happened that night either. She has always felt out of place and that people were staring and making fun of her. But she thought Sawyer was different. She thought he saw through the outside.
Sawyer tried to move on after Annie left, but it wasn’t easy and it wasn’t what he really wanted. He is happy with his life now, but it is not complete. Sawyer is a kind hearted person and the more I read about him the more I could see that. The way he treated Annie and her son was heartwarming. He didn’t quit or back down once he made his mind up to have Annie back in his life.
This was a really amazing story. Will be looking forward to future work from this author.

Author Info

Lia Riley writes offbeat New Adult and Contemporary Adult romance. After studying at the University of Montana-Missoula, she scoured the world armed only with a backpack, overconfidence and a terrible sense of direction. She counts shooting vodka with a Ukranian mechanic in Antarctica, sipping yerba mate with gauchos in Chile and swilling XXXX with stationhands in Outback Australia among her accomplishments.
A British literature fanatic at heart, Lia considers Mr. Darcy and Edward Rochester as her fictional boyfriends. Her very patient husband doesn't mind. Much. When not torturing heroes (because c'mon, who doesn't love a good tortured hero?), Lia herds unruly chickens, camps, beach combs, daydreams about future books, wades through a mile-high TBR pile and schemes yet another trip. Right now, Icelandic hot springs and Scottish castles sound mighty fine.

“You name all those birds?”
“Oh sure. Constance, Shy, and Petunia are the Araucanas over there.” She pointed to the three white hens with impressive feathery ear tufts. “They’re the only ones that lay those pretty blue eggs. Over in the far corner are the Rhode Island Reds: Bixby, Big Mama, Miss Thing, Chatterbox, Honey, and Crazy. Then scratching in the back is Feather Foot, because, well, that’s obvious, and . . . what? Are you laughing at me?”
“You name your chickens.” God, she really was too fucking adorable for her own good.
“What, Mr. Funny—if you had a coop, you’re saying you wouldn’t name yours?”
“Sure I would.” He gave a shrug. “I’d call them all the same thing.”
“Oh yeah? What’s that? Chicken?”
Her lips twitched even as she sniffed. “That’s so not funny.”
“It’s a little funny.”
“Must be that Kane humor. I’m genetically immune.”
