Feisty businesswoman Aubree Manning knew coming back to Prospect, Texas would land her in the middle of drama. Her ex-boyfriend-turned-sheriff, Parker Montgomery, never forgave her for dumping his Camaro into the pond before she left town. Determined to make her pay, Parker arrests her the moment she enters town, but she manages to smooth talk her way out of trouble. However, it soon becomes difficult to suppress her lingering feelings for Parker when she starts spending more and more time with him.

Parker suffers in silence with anxiety and nightmares due to his dark past. After serving in the army for nearly eight years, he came back to Prospect to start anew. Though he never quite got over Aubree bailing on him the moment she turned eighteen, it seemed so easy picking up where they left off. The past can be forgiven, but the future stands in the balance. She’s only in town for a week and then she’s going to do the very thing she did ten years ago, unless Parker can find some way to convince her to stay.

STILL IN LOVE WITH YOU is second chance at love, one of my favorites genres.  It is charming, sweet and light and although there are some emotional issues discussed, it never weighs the story down.  Parker Montgomery and Aubree Manning meet again after ten year and realize they still have strong feelings for each other.

Parker and Aubree were highschool sweethearts but broke up when Aubree left town.   After Aubree left, Parker joined the military and now he is the town sheriff.  Unfortunately, the four terms Parker served overseas, took its toll on him and he still suffers from PTSD.

Aubree left Prospect, Texas ten years ago and is now a successful financial adviser living in Dallas.  She is tough and outspoken and her mouth usually gets her trouble.  It is funny how she unintentionally starts rumors about herself.

Everyone in this small town is meddling and trying to get Parker and Aubree back together, except Parker’s current girlfriend.  Can Parker and Aubree overcome all the obstacles keeping them apart?  They each have insecurities and issues yet, when they are together, they are stronger and bring out the best in each other.  I liked this sweet and funny story but I have it admit, there were times the story did not seem believable or realistic.  As an example, I found it hard to believe Parker, an alpha male, did not mind when Aubree buys him all new appliances for his house, without first asking him.  At times, this story is silly and there is plenty of gossip going on with all the busybodies in small town Prospect, Texas.

I love a contemporary romance loaded with banter and chemistry with a protective alpha male pursuing a feisty female. When I’m not reading I’m spending time with my family and fostering dogs. I've been reviewing for Cocktails and Books since April 2013.
