Jace Fisher is the textbook definition of the strong silent type—nobody can break through his tough exterior. He has suffered more than his fair share of tragedies, and to protect his shattered heart, he pushes everyone away. Jace spends his days fixing the Indigo Bay cottages, and his nights… nobody really knows. He keeps to himself.
When Jace shows up to fix Sky’s AC, he barely notices her and she’s distracted with settling in. It takes an emergency situation to get them talking, and when they do, the two find they have more in common than first appeared. As their attraction grows, defenses soar. Will they be able to risk love when they’ve both been burned in the past?
This is the first book in the Indigo Bay Sweet Romance series (a story world created by six fabulous authors) as well as a spinoff from USA Today bestselling author Stacy Claflin's Hunters series. This sweet romance is a standalone, and can be read on its own.
I'm super excited about this new Indigo Bay series! Different authors are writing the books but it's all set in the same town. These kinds of series are fun because you can find new authors to love or enjoy the ones you already know and love. My only little tiny complaint is that the books are just novellas and I'm always left longing for just a bit more. I've been reading a LOT of novellas lately and I'm wishing authors would get back to those full length novels I love. Even in a collection series like these.
Stacy Claflin is not a new author to me. I've read many of her books and I've enjoyed them- especially her clean romance line and the Hunter's series. This book is a spin-off from that series but obviously can stand alone.
I love the setting for this series. What could be better than a cute little town with a beach? In this book, Sky is escaping her life before, holing up and trying to figure out where she wants to be. Jace is the handiest of handy men, working on the property Sky is staying at. I loved their initial attraction and interest in each other and how that progressed into a very normal dating situation.
There was one scene that I didn't love where Sky is pitching a fit and refuses to tell Hunter why she is upset. It felt so out of character for Sky and so juvenile. I didn't like it and it clouded me toward Sky after that. But Jace? I loved him from beginning to end. He's a good guy all the way around.
I liked this book and it definitely peaked my interest in this series. I'm looking forward to reading the other books- up next for me is Sweet Regrets by Jennifer Peel but that one isn't until June. I can't wait though!!
