“Defying the Odds
Reviewed by Suz & posted at Under the Covers Book Blog
It all started with a slice of pumpkin pie. Not the most auspacious of starts I'll grant you , but it lead to one hell of a sweet and sexy read.
Melody has started a new life in the small town of Garnet to get away from an abusive, crazy ex-husband , concentrating on getting her life back together, she didn't expect to find Clay. Seeing him lonely on Thanksgiving she gets him a piece of pumpkin pie, never expecting the gesture to touch the big gorgeous man as much as it does. No one has given Clay anything that they didn't expect to gain from, and so when the new waitress gives him a free slice of pie she can't really afford he is deeply touched and can't help but notice of beautiful and warm she is and despite the fact the two of them are a little bit broken, they seem to fit just right.
I have never read anything by Kele Moon before, but I am definitely going to be looking more of her books up, and I am certainly going to be reading the next book in this series. It was a great mixture of sweet, with the gruff and quiet Clay all but bearing his heart for anyone to see whenever he looks at Melody, sexy, Vegas against-the-window-sex *fans self*, and funny. The characters were likable, especially Clay's adopted siblings Wyatt and Jules; I pratically devoured this book!
I am left now with a craving for pumpkin pie, (which I have never had) and eagerly awaiting the next book, which, fingerscrossed is going to be about the highly charming but equally lonely Sheriff, Wyatt or his sister the beautiful, tough but also lonely Jules.
