Sweet and short!

This was a short, sweet and quick listen.

I loved Colin and Ryder's story it was cute and they were perfect for eachother.

This book is a prequel in the Licking Thicket series and can be listened to as a standalone. I really wished this story was longer as the author did a brilliant job on the character development.

Although this was a 2 hr listen I was drawn the story and the characters.

Michael Dean's audio delivery and narration was absolutely brilliant!

The perfect short story!!

OY I broke my rule and listened to Flakes by Lucy Lennox and May Archer BEFORE I read it! OMG I loved it...Colin and Ryder's story is super sweet, so very sexy and downright adorable...These 2 couldn't be more opposite and yet, they fit perfectly! Hot, huge, muscled, tatted, construction contractor Ryder and the adorable, snarky, sweet and sexy, interior designer Colin are "frenemies" with some smoking hot chemistry...Set in a forced proximity situation, can a game of truth or shot lead to love?? GAH..A fabulous short listen that I recommend highly...Michael (Pauley) Dean's Colin narration was fantastic!! I was in stitches from the get go as expected from Lucy and May!!

Colin and Ryder

10 stars don't do justice. Colin and Ryder are perfect for each other, and the 5 yr gap for epilogue was brilliant. Michael was eargasm worthy. Don't miss this one

Loved it!

I love the story and how they were able to work together so in the future they are together. With a daughter for the future, can’t wait to see what’s next.

Fun start to a new series!

This is a fun start to a new series. Ryder and Colin have known each other for years, and they finally give in to their mutual attraction when they're snowed in on a joint project. This is a short book that introduces new characters towards the end that I assume we'll see more of in future books in the series. Already, I'm a fan of this little town in Tennessee. I hadn't read the blurb before I started listening so I had the fun surprise of listening to this book that takes place one New Year's eve on New Year's eve.

Disappointing…

I have enjoyed the Licking Thicket series, but just bought this prequel. There is nothing to it. It takes place over one night, where we learn in the past they didn’t get along, but after drinking shots the truth comes out and they are immediately in love and planning marriage and babies. Not worth the money or a credit.

Didn't care for it... blah

First of all, I really do like Michael Dean as a narrator.... BUT ... not in this book. It was way to whiny that I just couldn't get passed it. I stopped many times... but eventually did finish the 2 hr book. Nothing special in the story. I love Lucy Lennox and have listened to most of her books. She is amazing!! This is not one of her best. Sorry.
