ARC received for honest review for CJ’s Book Corner

I wanted to read this book slow. I didn’t want this series to end. The last of the Willow Creek boys story was being told and I think it was the best. Hayes, the guitar player for Willow Creek was the playboy of the group. Until he met Arden, Sadie’s assistant. They shared an amazing night together and that was it for him. She thought is was a one time thing and tried to avoid him. He made it known he was not giving up. She had a crazy ex and a little girl. He was going to make her forget the past and love them both. Boy did he!! This story is what every woman who is dating would want in a man. The passion, the attention, the undeniable chemistry, and of course the devotion to not only her but her daughter.

All of Micalea Smeltzer’s books leave an impression. Her stories are well told, she makes her characters believable, and you can’t help but fall in love with every series. I am sad to see this one end, but know that she has got another one waiting in the wings ready for us to fall in love with again. Thank you Micalea Smeltzer for bringing us the boys of Willow Creek. This has definitely been one of my fave series.

I had life all figured out.
Married with a baby on the way I stupidly believed that things were perfect.But then the good guy I fell in love with turned out to not be as good as I thought.

I was left alone to pick up the pieces of my life and provide for my daughter.

And then I met him.


The bad boy that just might not be so bad.

Three years after her husband walked out on her Arden James is struggling to make ends meet as a single mom. Despite it all, she knows she’s better off with her ex out of the picture, and so is her daughter.

Josh Hayes—player, jokester, and very naughty boy—is the guitar player for the band Willow Creek. He’s used to living the fast life, but suddenly it doesn’t appeal to him anymore, and he has his sights set on the fiery Arden.

Despite their undeniable chemistry, Arden isn’t sure she wants to invite a man into her life that has never been in a committed relationship before. But Hayes is determined to prove to her that there’s more to him than meets the eye. He just needs Arden to take a chance.
