Rated 4 out of 5 by from Young in Age, Old in Maturity Level While technically a New Adult age ranged novel, the maturity level of the principal characters place this solidly in Contemporary Romance. Dori is 17 years old and when she got pregnant, tried out homeschooling, but then just got her GED so that she could start taking college courses. Her son, Luther Joe, is about 6 months old. Dori was raised by her grandparents after her parents died when she was about 8. Since her grandmother passed away, it has just been her and her grandfather, and now Luther Joe. Johnny Pine is 20 years old and raising his much younger brothers, Marshall age 10 and Brooks age 7. Their father is serving a life sentence in prison and their mother died a couple years prior of a drug overdose. Johnny fought to keep his brothers with him, even if it means literally living on the wrong side of the tracks. Since then, it has been a struggle, one day he dreams of a better life for him and his brothers. Dori and Johnny have had a passing knowledge of each other, but neither has had the time or inclination to even think about a relationship with everything else going on in their lives. That is, until everything changes in the blink of an eye one night and Dori's whole world comes crashing down. Johnny and his brothers are the only ones who offer her a hand and she accepts. I think I spent much of the first half of this book either in tears or near tears. It was just scene after scene of heart rending circumstances. But, one thing is sure, you get to know the real Johnny and Dori. The actual romance is very short, most of it happens in about 7 days. But they are very intense days, where Johnny and Dori get to know the true essence of the other person. And you just can't help but cheer them on, after all they have each been through. Though this book doesn't say that it is part of a series, but Ruby from The Curl Up and Dye by Sharon Sala takes part in helping both Johnny and Dori at different time as well as has several scenes told from her viewpoint. I enjoyed this book, though I did think the ending was a bit far fetched, it was in the realm of possibilities. I gave this book 4 stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Southern town charm It's the characters that are so important in this series and Sala once again brings us wonderful ones. Not only Dori and Johnny, but Johnny's little brothers and those people in the town who are so willing to lend a hand when needed. Life hasn’t always been kind to Dori or Johnny, but they have never given up. They work hard at making a good life for those they care about and when life brings them into the same sphere, that dedication expands to encompass both families. But while life keeps throwing them punches, now they have each other and it is so very sweet watching them fall in love. I’m impressed at how, being so young but having to take on so much responsibility, they still manage to keep a good attitude. They aren’t naïve but they aren’t letting it turn them bitter either. They are such a fantastic match and I was so very happy that they found each other. As with the other books, Sala continues to bring a great cast of secondary characters … unfortunately not all of them have a good heart. It isn’t always pretty, but Sala manages to do a fantastic job of capturing that small town feel. There are caring people, who help and support those around them, but there are also those that only look out for themselves. It’s both kinds of people that bring Dori and Johnny to their eventual HEA. And while it isn’t always roses and sunshine, thee good definitely outweighs the bad in their lives, which I think is what most of us hope for. If you haven’t read Count Your Blessings (previously titled Color Me Bad) or Curl Up & Dye, it's OK because all of these books can stand on their own. But it does help to give you an idea of the small Southern town charm and politics that Sala captures so well. And as much as I loved the first two stories, I think this one is my favorite (so far, because I can’t wait to see what Sala has in store for us next).
