This author, Lucy Score, writes romance with a depth that I didn’t see coming.
The story begins simply but with an interesting bread crumb and more of them follow as the story progresses.
The main character, Summer Lentz, is written smartly and oh, so very human, that one can’t help but continue to ask why… as the complications of her life and that of Carter Pierce’s criss-cross with well written humor.
What I enjoyed was the pace at which the romance builds. The path to this romance feels fun and original. Once the romance forms, what I didn’t expect was the stone that hit hard in what initially presents itself as a fun, fanciful romance but delivers a hard hitting and poignant punch of seriousness, the reader gets hit with.
I like stories like this. Stories where the other shoe falls and you feel the punch in your gut. I liked not being able to see how the author was going to bring Summer and Carter together in the end. It was unexpected, yet made absolute sense because of the groundwork laid in presenting who these character’s are. In the end, one will inevitably be who they are intended to be.
No More Secrets: A Small Town Love Story (The Pierce Brothers Book 1) gets 4 stars out of 5. I was intrigued to read books 2 and 3 in this series. Look for my upcoming reviews on them, as well.
