Emmeline Austin wants a night filled with adventure when her friends decide to desert her for some random guys, so she decides to take the reins of her own life and marry a man she's just met. This isn't a spoiler, as is it happens almost immediately. What happens in Vegas and all... This is when we first meet Nick Slater, and Emmeline doesn't see him again until 9 years later. When she moves to Montana to follow her dream of being a kindergarten teacher. The Cover Chapel is small town romance at its best and for those of you that are into overbearing alphas and the women that own their hearts, this book gives new meaning to whirlwind romance!
Nick is persistent and HOT and he wants another chance. But, Emmy has a boyfriend and doesn't want to let Nick back in even though she can't forget about the night that insta-love took over her world and she recklessly gave her heart to a stranger. So, she reluctantly agrees to give him a chance to explain. “Five dates. One week,” Normally I would call this a second chance romance, but in this case since the first chance lasted less than 24 hours I can't really classify it that way. And to be honest, the second chance, even though it was 9 years later was a little too insta-love as well. I mean, I guess it could happen but, for me personally I'm not the biggest fan of that type of thing. But for those that are, it was done really well! Nick was way more alpha-male than I'd thought he'd be too, almost too overbearing at times. But I’ve got to give a guy props for trying so hard. He really was sweet and protective and he says the most swoonworthy things to get Emmy back.
I did not read the first book in this series, so I have nothing to compare it to. But, what I can say is that the writing is exceptional. Even though the chemistry and love aspect was super quick, the character development was great and I love the added element of suspense and danger, that totally brought up the angst factor and kept me going. The second half of the book was where it really locked me in, so if all that stuff I mentioned turns you off, just keep going because the latter part of the book is way stronger than the first, in my opinion. And I have to say that by the time the book ended, I had a huge smile on my face and I was kind of surprised by that myself!! I will definitely be going back to read the first book in the series, The Coppersmith Farmhouse. And I’m really looking forward to book 3, The Lucky Heart which comes out this August. These are all standalone novels with interconnected characters, so if you’re a stickler for order than read book one first. I guess I’m a rebel because I’ve never really cared about rules or order and I enjoyed it just fine! This really is the perfect read for summer, great characters, great writing and overall a cute and sexy story that can pull anyone out of a bad mood. This book reads like the perfect fairy tale that every woman wants.
