This was my first read from Melanie Harlow, I was drawn in by the cover 🥵
It follows a second generation character from Cloverleigh Farms but it can be read as a standalone. Winnie’s parents are from the first book in the series.
It was a cute contemporary romance with an age gap, single dad and grumpy/sunshine trope.
Winnie is a hopeless romantic who has sworn off men for a year after a breakup because she falls in love too fast. She moves in next door to an older and very attractive Dex, who is a fire fighting single dad of two little girls. Dex has sworn off relationships after the breakdown of his marriage and no longer believes in love.
Winnie and Dex were cute together, I did want a bit more drama (I think I read too much dark romance) but it was a nice small town romance read. I really enjoyed the scenes with Dex’s two girls they were cute!
