I'm loving these Prescott sisters and with And I Love Her, Nina Lindsey ups her game and gives us one helluva great love story. This time around it's oldest sister Callie's turn as she finds herself face to face with a memory from high school, all grown up in the form of one Jake Ryan, Hollywood's popular action hero. They shouldn't have chemistry since the somewhat staid Callie could never fit in Jake's world or be on his wildly muscular arms. But once again the magic that is Bliss Cove removes all pre-conceived notions and the electricity between them cannot be denied.
I loved the slow burn, the amazing build-up as Callie and Jake fall head over heels for the other, all the while trying to navigate his popularity and the reasons for being in Bliss Cove after so much time away. Their worlds couldn't be more opposite but somehow the smoldering looks, the heat between them drives them further into each other's arms as they find a comfortable rhythm with family and friends looking on. What I loved was that Jake was so in tune with what a possible relationship would look like with the smart as heck Professor and protected Callie as much as he could. Bliss Cove was the best place possible for him as he tries to stay out of the spotlight as the charming residents give him a knowing smile but don't overwhelm him with their knowledge of his status. That really made this book even more adorable to me.
There is plenty of doubt on both their parts but seeing Callie step out of her comfort zone (wearing vibrant colors instead of her usual muted tones!! yay!) and Jake getting the girl of his dreams when he wasn't even looking was worth all the stops and starts. This is small-town romance with a big dose of heart and soul and enough steam to make it perfect.
And I Love Her hit all the right notes for me and I happily give it a huge 5 stars!
