    A perfect friends-t0-lovers story

    THEN HE KISSED ME is a great addition to the Cottonbloom series, sweet and beautiful, filled with heart-tugging emotion and is the perfect best friends to lovers story. The connection between Nash and Tally was so strong that it survived two decades of separation and when they reunited, it felt like they had never been apart. Ms. Trentham paints such a compelling picture of their childhood that a vision of a young Tally and Nash sneaking off to spend time together made me sigh with pleasure. Nash is such a heartthrob, smart, caring and really sweet. His appeal lies in his geekiness and the fact that he is so unassuming and unaware of how attractive he is. Even though he has lingering insecurities from his youth, he doesn't let them overwhelm him like Tally does. She could be the poster child for self-sabotage becasue every time things were going well in her life and between them, she found a way to derail them. In fact it was so constant, it became annoying. In spite of that, Tally was really easy to understand because all she really wanted was someone to accept her and love her. I have to say that I had a smile on my face most of the time I was reading this book because their conversations were so much fun and while Nash was laid back and easygoing, he had some latent alpha male tendencies that came out at just the right moments and he really knew how to handle Tally. There are similarities between this story and the previous one, but each character is unique enough that it does not take away from the stories, but rather enhances them. The appeal in this book lies in the simplicity of the story and the small town lifestyle, and the ongoing feud between Sawyer and Regan as well as the drama surrounding the coming festival are enough to stoke my interest in the next installment of the series.

    Another beautiful read!

    I love stories where the hero & heroine have grown up together! Nash and Tally’s story was absolutely beautiful! Both experienced the loss of their parents at a young age. Nash was taken in by his aunt and moved across the state line, severing his and Tally’s friendship. It just broke my heart. Thankfully years later, the two are reunited when Nash moves back to town to take care of his aunt and start a teaching job at a local college. As the pair rekindle their friendship, sparks start to fly as they spend more time together. Nash wants to explore these new feelings but Tally is very afraid, self-sabotaging herself throughout most of the book. It was jarring to read, every time their relationship picked up momentum, Tally hit the brakes. Nash and Tally both dealt with past insecurities and they frequently got in the way of their budding relationship. Yes, their issues were valid but at one point, I wanted to shake some sense into Tally. What was also really special was a smaller secondary storyline with a rekindling of love for two older citizens of Cottonbloom. It was so adorable! I wish the storyline could’ve developed more but maybe it will in the next book. THEN HE KISSED ME is an endearing story that will tug hard on your heartstrings. Despite my exasperation with Tally, their story was a joy to read and I’m looking forward to the next book, Regan and Sawyer’s story. ***I voluntarily read and reviewed a copy of the book in 2016 in exchange for an honest review***
