Summary via (NetGalley):
Plenty was a beautiful and serene town, and Julia was the mayor’s well-behaved daughter. Her sister decided to host a party in order to find Julia a husband, but on her way to the party, Julia got into a car accident. The man who came to tow her car took Julia’s breath away—it was Zane. He was a wild and dangerous man—her complete opposite. Zane was surprised to see Julia, too. He couldn’t believe the sexy beauty before him was the same, innocent Julia he’d always known.

My Review:
I did not like this story. Mostly because of Julia’s character. This story had a lot of potential but her naivety, self-obsession, and lack of respect for and understanding of Zane’s feelings ruined it all for me.

There is a clearly wrong misconception about Zane (the wild, bad boy) that the town refuses to let go. He’s a good guy who did his best to raise his little sister after an unfortunate situation. So I feel for him. It’s never easy being an outsider looking in. However, he does have a bit of a misogynistic temper (big no-no).

I love Kree, Zane’s sister. She is so sweet and down-to-earth. She’s funny, fashionable, and exuberant. Kree brought color and life to the otherwise lacking story.
