Willa Doon is a quiet, shy woman. She has always had a crush on Jackson Page but he’s never even remembered her name. Until one night when he finally sees her and gives her the first real kiss she’s ever had. But the next day he goes back to barely acknowledging her, thanks to tequila. While Willa is crushed, Jackson dreams of an angel that might be the answer to this broken man.
“What petrified me was the realization that Jackson had the power to decimate my life. I was halfway in love with him already. If he made me fall the rest of the way, then tossed me aside, I’d be destroyed.
He’d leave me utterly and completely broken.”
Loved going back to Lark Cove. Jackson was just as enticing as I imagined! This story was just as heartbreaking as it was charming. Willa stole my heart and I was right along her side as she tried to get past this crush she had on Jackson. I was so frustrated with Jackson because even though his start in life was messed up and he didn’t feel worthy of happiness, he CHASED Willa. He wanted Willa more than he wanted anything before and I just wanted to shelter Willa and protect her heart. But these two and their struggle to figure it all out was so worth it. This emotional series has pulled me in and I’m so pulled into each and every character. I need them to find their little piece of happiness.
If you like books with that small town feel and characters that feel like your favorite friend, you’ll love the Lark Cove series. It’s just a place I want to come back and visit time and time again.
I scooched my chair in toward the table, trying to put a little more space between Jackson and me, but he wasn’t having it.
He put both hands on the back of my chair, then leaned in close. “Hi, Willa.”
“Uh . . . hi.” I shivered at the heat from his chest on my bare shoulders.
Why was he standing so close? My parents were right there. Our table was one of four tall, square ones in the center of the room and there was plenty of space between tables.
But was Jackson using any of that plentiful space?
No sirree. He stayed pressed against the back of my chair, like there were only three inches of usable space behind him, not three feet.
My skin prickled he was so close. I tried to nudge my chair forward again but it barely moved. Sweat beaded on my temples and I pulled in a shaking breath.
Jackson’s woodsy, rich scent was everywhere. It overpowered the stale beer, pizza and peanuts, and I inhaled a deep breath, unable to resist.
Sexy Hot Forest. That’s what they’d call his cologne.
