The First Kiss of Spring (Eternity Springs #14)
by Emily March
Spring has come to Eternity Springs in The First Kiss of Spring, the newest installment in this New York Times bestselling series by Emily March.
Life could be a dream…
Goal-oriented and gorgeous, Caitlin Timberlake’s dreams took her to the top of the corporate ladder in New York City. Now years later, her goals have changed. She wants to come home to Eternity Springs and build a business and a family of her own—with the new man in town. So what if sexy mechanic Josh Tarkington wants nothing more than a fling? Caitlin is a patient woman who knows how to work hard and strategize to win what she desires. She desires Josh. Unfortunately, he has other plans.
If only things were different…
Josh craves Caitlin and all she has to offer. However, he is a man with secrets. He has worked hard to overcome his tragic past, but he’s afraid to risk having a future because he knows trouble is never very far away. When a selfless act brings that trouble to his door, he stands to lose everything he cares about—including Caitlin. Will her love and the healing magic of Eternity Springs be enough to save him?
What first drew me to this book is its lovely cover. I wish my house and yard looked that pretty! I was so taken with the cover that I didn’t realize that THE FIRST KISS OF SPRING is the fourteenth book in the Eternity Springs series. It appears that I have only read 1 other book in this series, so I was a bit worried I would be a little lost. I am happy to say that this book works great as a standalone!
Then the book started hitting one of my sensitive issues – child abuse. It didn’t go to deep, just touched on it enough to let you know it happened. Thankfully it was not enough to make me stop reading.
THE FIRST KISS OF SPRING by Emily March is an easy to read small town, contemporary romance. I enjoyed getting to know the characters. Josh has his own unique issues and reasons not to want to ever get in another serious relationship again. Caitlin is finally following her dreams and she has decided she want Josh by her side. But how long is she going to have to wait for him.
I am happy to say that I liked THE FIRST KISS OF SPRING so much I will be getting some of the others in this series very soon. I can’t wait to see what I missed!
