"It Happened on Love Street," is a fun, cheery and yet zany contemporary romance that was highly enjoyable for a springtime read. Add a few mischief pups and a hunky hero and I was literally hooked. As a quick little bonus, I immensely savored the classifieds of the local newspaper as the rest of the town of, Everland, Georgia was able to be highlighted with minimum effort.
Focusing more on the romance I loved how superficial the chemistry of the characters was. The adoration was directly in front and in the center as was the wild, humorous attraction between both Rhett and Pepper. In short, this story is exactly what I want to see in a novel, the romance shinning bright from start to finish and author, Lily Riley certainly delivered a lasting read.
As for the characters, I will start with Pepper. She reminded me so much of myself. She was determined. She had plans that got knocked out of the ballpark and she was forced to accept what life had thrown at her. Pepper's character was full of sass, independence and naturally a little outlandish as she accepts a job as a dog walker. I had to laugh out at Pepper's fears when it came to pups and how anyone of the dogs she was going to walk could end up ruining everything she had planned for her life.
Rhett, the hero was Everland's local vet. He was rough around the edges, but his handsome features were sharp enough to cut glass, yes, he was sexy, but a man that has dedicated his life to saving animals is definitely at the top of my list! In my opinion Rhett was used to dealing with challenges, but Pepper turned out to be the largest obstacle that Rhett had to deal with. I do really love the fact that twosome were neighbors and how annoyed with sensual chemistry it made both Rhett and Pepper.
Honestly, there was just so much to love about this book that I could continue to offer the story as well as the author praise. "It Happened on Love Street," is a story that I felt like the author was on the same page as her readers. This book is perfect, delightful, entertaining and just a mega hit! Do read it!
