After reading The Last One and The First One, Maureen was definitely the unattached character I was most interested in seeing a romance for out of all the side characters in those books. And Always For You – Maureen’s book – lived up to what I was expecting.
It’s the story of Maureen, a vet in small-town Georgia, and Smith, her new partner in the business…and the man she’s been in love with since they went to college together. On top of that, he’s renting a room in her house (with a separate entrance, but still). With the job, the friendship, and the living close by, there’s no way for them to avoid realizing their mutual feelings.

I liked him, too – he was sweet, he was friendly, he did his best to fit in. All the things I like in romance heroes.
With a nice small town feel, a great cast of characters, and some nice romantic sex, this book hit every one of my needs. All in all, this was a super sweet but still sexy book about a great couple – and definitely the one I wanted to read about!
