Some describe me as a quirky, free-spirited journalist who charges her crystals by moonlight.
They’re not wrong.

My instincts ensure I know everything that goes on in my small town. And not much surprises me. But when the man who destroyed my heart returns to care for his family’s business, I’m shaken to the core.

After our messy breakup, Hayden Shaw swore he’d never come back to Valentine, Texas.
Years later, I’m still trying to forget we ever existed.
Damn near impossible when he’s now everywhere.
A constant reminder of what could have been.

Rumors swirl about his true intentions, but a little gossip has never bothered me.
However, if winning over my heart is his end game, he can hang up his spurs because I won’t make the same mistake twice—or will I?

Spill the Sweet Tea is a second chance, hate-to-love you, grumpy/sunshine contemporary small-town southern romance with rom-com vibes and a happily ever after.

Each book in the Valentine Texas series is a stand-alone. Check out Book 1 – Bless Your Heart

Warning: this romance book contains tons of southern sass, lots of woo-woo, and small-town gossip! Fade to black and cheating are not included.

My Thoughts:

When a series makes you feel like you’re heading back ‘home’, you know you’re reading the right books! Stepping back into Valentine, Texas made my heart feel full of love and I couldn’t wait to see Kinsley get her happily ever after that she’d been manifesting for years.

I love how Kinsley has such a unique personality and everyone embraces it – including her. It’s so refreshing! Even though she’s spent the past decade trying to erase the hurt that she experienced with Hayden. When she finds herself wanting to progress at the local newspaper she works for, she has to go back before she can go forward by featuring a full feature on the bookstore that Hayden’s family owns. It puts her face-to-face with the man himself and he’s not making it easy on her.

Hayden left Valentine to pursue what he thought would be a career to make him ‘enough’ for Kinsley. But he ended up meeting Penelope and quickly found himself stuck. It didn’t take long for her to rise to the top of my villian list. That woman is VILE! When Hayden comes back to Valentine and sees Kinsley, it’s as if his soul finally settles. But with so much left behind in his new life, you’ll wonder if he’ll ever truly want to go back to go forward.

The heat between this second chance, love-to-hate-to-love couple is so hot that you might not want to sit under a sprinkler while reading this! It steams off the page and right into your heart, giving you plenty of moments to swoon, too. I love how these two are actually quite opposite of one another, yet fit perfectly and even inspire one another. You’re not going to want to miss out on this epic love story that is going to make you want to Spill the Tea to all your friends and booklovers!
