✱✱Book Review✱✱ South Main and Gentry by A.D. Ellis & Declan Rhodes

South Main and Gentry
Willow Springs Book 1
by A.D. Ellis & Declan Rhodes

Mitch Aiken serves up authentic small-town comfort food in Willow Springs' South Main diner. Mitch dominates the local food scene until young upstart Tanner Gentry arrives from Chicago to prove small-town foodies are aching for a contemporary approach to coffee and sandwiches. Soon, a spark is lit, and it doesn't take long to kindle it into a flame.

The battle for the hearts and stomachs of Willow Springs residents is on with one major complication - the sexual chemistry between Mitch and Tanner is off the charts and everyone recognizes it except Mitch and Tanner themselves.

South Main and Gentry is a 53,000-word gay romance with enemies to lovers, age gap, and opposites attract themes. It is the first book in the Willow Springs series. All books can be read as standalone stories, but characters from each book will reappear across the series. A happily ever after ending is guaranteed.

Momma Says: 4 stars⭐⭐⭐⭐

Enemies to lovers, age gap, and opposites attract - South Main and Gentry was practically made for me. I get three of my favorite romance tropes combined with some terrific characters I really hope to see more of as this series progresses. Mitch and Tanner may be opposites in some things, but they're both crazy competitive, sometimes a little too much for their own good. That said, they have great chemistry and they love as hard as they compete. I will say the drama, that thing that brings about the angst for the couple to overcome, kind of left me on the fence about Mitch. Fortunately, I really liked him up to that point, so I was still interested to see how that particular hurdle was jumped. All things considered, this first book in the Willow Springs series is a solid introduction to the town and its colorful characters. Ellis and Rhodes make a good pair, and I'll be anxiously waiting to see what's next.
