✱✱Book Review✱✱ SO CLOSE by Serena Bell

So Close 
Tierney Bay Book 1
by Serena Bell 

The inn is her life. He needs to tear it down.

Auburn Campbell loves Beachcrest Inn. Working there saved her sanity as a teenager and got her back on her feet after a controlling relationship. So when Trey Xavier shows up, threatening to demolish Beachcrest, she’s ready to fight. Nothing riles her up like a hot guy in an expensive suit on a power trip—in the worst and best ways.

Trey screwed up. And now he needs this land deal or he’ll lose his business. He built his company from scratch so he could take care of his family the way his dad never did. But it would be a lot easier for Trey to stand his ground if Auburn didn’t tempt him so badly. He hasn’t wanted anyone like this in a long time. Maybe ever.

After a few days of summer sun, Auburn and Trey are both losing their heads—and maybe their hearts, too. Except they’re both out of practice at losing.

Only one thing’s certain: The Fourth of July in Tierney Bay will have plenty of fireworks this year.

Momma Says: 5 stars⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

So Close combines some of my favorite romance tropes. It has the feel of a small-town romance, and we also get some enemies to lovers fun with Auburn and Trey going toe to toe over the Beachcrest Inn. Plus, it's kinda-sorta a second chance romance. Not in the traditional sense because these two haven't been a couple before, but they've both been burned by love and neither is really willing to try again, and they both deserve a second chance at love. There is an ex-wife, but thankfully, that's not where the angst comes from. In fact, she doesn't even make an appearance. Nope, this is all Auburn and Trey, and whether they're in a battle of wills or tearing each other's clothes off, and they do plenty of both, they're fabulous together. Trey has such a tough exterior, but he's all heart on the inside, and Auburn is exactly what he needs to learn to let his softer side show. In the same turn, he's just the guy to help Auburn trust men again, or at least one man. These two just fit perfectly, like pieces of a puzzle. Neither of them is perfect, by any means. They both have their flaws, but they're perfect for each other. This is one completely engaging read from start to finish. It's got plenty of heart, well-timed wit, and a couple sexy enough to burn up the pages. And to think, this is just the start of the series! I can't wait to see what's next for Tierney Bay.
