Cole Masten. Abandoned by his superstar wife, Hollywood’s Perfect Husband is now Hollywood’s Sexiest Bachelor: partying hard and screwing even harder. Watch out Los Angeles, there's a new bad boy in town. Summer Jenkins. That’s me, a small town girl stuck in Quincy, Georgia. I cook some mean chicken and dumplins, can bluff a grown man out of his savings in poker, and was voted Most Friendly my senior year. We were from different worlds. Our lives shouldn’t have collided. But then Cole Masten read a book about my small town. And six months later, his jet landed on our dusty airstrip, and he brought Hollywood with him. From the start, I knew he was trouble. For our town. And for me. Sometimes, opposites just aren’t meant to attract

My Thoughts:
When I was asked to review this book, I jumped on the offer. I've been eyeing this book forever because the blurb sounded so good! Not to mention its the whole "Hollywood heartthrob meets small country girl" kinda thing.
 This was such a great read! There was just something so sexy about Cole Masten. He kind of transformed from spoiled to almost self-sufficient. You couldn't help but to feel sorry for him for wanting to make it work with his ex-wife. The progress that Cole made through the book was what really stood out to me. I'm a sucker for great character development. I can't forget Cocky, that was Cole's "baby", and it was adorable how much he cared for him. 
Summer was the epitome of a strong, independent, southern woman. Did she make so really big mistakes? Yes, she did, but to me, they were almost justifiable. Summer and Cole's relationship was a hate/love thing filled with sexual tension. Summer was the one woman who didn't fall at Cole's feet. She resisted him and frankly, she didn't even like him at first. 
I can now see why this book has so many wonderful reviews. This may have been my first book by this author, but it will not be my last. This book should be on every readers shelf or kindle.
