“I tried to think of something—anything—to calm my raging hard-on. One wrong move and Leah Mae would rub up against it and that was liable to kill me dead on the spot.” — Jameson Bodine

Model turned disgraced reality TV starlet, Leah Mae Larkin, crash lands in her hometown of Bootleg Springs to lay low while a scandal threatens her career. She can’t shake the feeling that her agent—and supposed fiancé—manipulated her into the role of made-for-TV homewrecker. Connecting with her roots is just what she needs, and Bootleg Springs is home to her father, moonshine, and her childhood best friend, Jameson Bodine.

Only there’s nothing childlike about Jameson—a man who turns scrap metal into art and isn’t afraid to throw down on a rowdy Friday night with his brothers and hellcat sister. He might not say much, but still waters run deep. Seeing the ring on his crush’s finger? He doesn’t like it, but he can’t wish it away. No more than he can wish away the trouble his family is in, with evidence pointing to his late father in the cold case disappearance of Callie Kendall.

Jameson and Leah Mae are just two friends reliving their summers together, blowing off steam, and having fun for the first time in a long time. But Leah Mae is realizing what’s really important in her life, and it isn’t what she thought.

And sometimes steam turns into sparks—hot as molten steel—and friends aren’t just friends.


If you have a thing for the quiet, charming, art type then you are going to fall head over heels in love with Jameson Bodine.

This book is the second in the Bootleg Spring series.  While it can truly be read as a standalone, I think you get more out of the book if you read the first one.  Even if you read it after this book.  Even though we are only on the second book, this series is so good you’ll want to read all of them.  This time we get Jameson’s story.  He’s the youngest of the boys.  He’s charming, quiet, shy, and sweet.  Don’t let that deter you. He’s so much MORE.  There’s a subtle strength about him.  While he may be unsure in some areas of his life he is very sure when it comes to his art and the ones he loves. This confidence and his charm will have you swooning.

On the outside Leah Mae seems like she has it all, but underneath she’s a little lost.  Bootleg Springs and Jameson are just the ones to help her find her way.  She learns that sometimes what you think your dream is really isn’t what makes you happy.  What is so great about these books is that you are drawn to not only the main characters but you are enthralled with all the secondary characters too.  There are a few that I’m really hoping we get more of their story either as a whole book, or in another’s book.  This town and it’s residents are quirky and lovable.  I want to move to Bootleg Springs.

You need to read this book and this series.  It’s funny and sweet, but also sexy and emotional.  It’s already on my top 5 of always recommend series.
