Bootleg Springs delivers it’s second love story with Claire Kingsley taking the reigns on Jameson Bodine’s story. The childhood friends to lover’s trope is always a favourite of mine and this is one of the best I have ever read.
Sweet, quiet and arty Jameson is everything I look for in a book boyfriend. He may be quiet but that doesn’t mean he isn’t strong and won’t stand up for what he believes in. The heroine Leah Mae is a true example of does being famous mean having it all. A visit to her hometown of Bootleg Springs and reconnecting with her childhood friend Jameson have her asking this question.
The slow-burn relationship is rewarding as Jameson and Leah Mae reconnect and is filled with the expected humour and fun that comes with a Claire & Lucy small town. I think we were all cheering loudly for Mona Lisa McNugget during her fight scene. We also get to spend more time with the various siblings and friends who will complete the series. The underlying mystery surrounding the disappearance of Callie Kendall receives more clues as well.
This book also has possibly my favourite first kiss of ALL TIME! The swoon factor was so high I had to go back and read it again straight away.
This town is funny, charming and the kind that you want to move to. The precision with which Claire and Lucy have tied their stories together is flawless. I eagerly await the remaining 4 books.
Wow - What an absolutely fantastic book. I loved the story and all the feels it gave me. Jameson is so sweet and Leah Mae is the best partner for him. The others characters just help bring this story and town to life for me.
I can't wait to read the next installment from Bootleg Springs.
Loved Loved Loved this story wonderfully written Claire.
'Darlin' OMG talk about swoonworthy. Jameson Bodine is a sweet, sexy hot sculptor who only has eyes for his best friend model turned actress Leah Larkin who returns to Bootleg Springs after a scandal on her reality show. Mixed in with the ongoing Cold Case of missing Callie and a possibility of a Bodine being involved and you have another fabulous story. We get to catch up with the other Bodine's and can I just say I absolutely love Scarlett.
Loved the second installment in the Bootleg Springs series!
Jameson is such a sweet and sensitive type, but still manages to be sexy and brooding at the same time. I really felt connection between him and Leah Mae, and honestly, who can resist a second chance love story?
I have fallen in love with the Bodine’s and Bootleg Springs, and honestly cannot wait for the third installment!!
Absolutely loved reading book two in this series, can't recommend it enough. It's romcom and mystery at its best, a must read. Definitely read the books in order as there is a storyline that flows through the whole series.
