Clover Watson wants more from life than what she can find on her daddy's farm in southern Oregon. Young, smart, and driven, she has a plan and she refuses to be distracted from her goals. After four years at the University of Washington in Seattle, she heads home for the summer with her diploma and an acceptance letter to graduate school at University of Portland.
She's sure she’s got things all figured out. Except for Jake Feldman. He was one of her childhood friends, and she hasn't seen him since she left for college four years ago. This summer he's back in town and all grown up -- sweet, handsome, and completely smitten with Clover. At first, she thinks a harmless summer fling is the perfect reward for her hard work at school.
But as the summer continues and their romance grows, Jake challenges everything she thought she knew about herself and her plans. When the end of summer comes, Clover is forced to evaluate what she really wants, but can she find a way to write Jake into her life?
5 of 5 Clover
Clover.... Clover...... Clover is one of the most amazing stories I have read this year! I love me some Braxton Cole but dam she outdid herself with this simple romance. I love a good romance every now and then but Jake and Clover is on my top five list for favorite romances.
Clover is a smart girl and knows what she wants and she will stop at nothing to get it. She is determined not to be stuck on her fathers farm. She goes off to college and when she comes home for the summer before she goes off to graduate school her world is about to change. She sees her childhood friend Jake and when she does she does not recognize him because he has grown up and he gets her heart racing.
Jake has spent every summer with his aunt and he has become friends with Clover and her brother. He has always had feelings for Clover but never said anything because he was only there for the summer. But now that Clover is all grown up and home from college Jake wants her and he will stop at nothing to have her. As the summer progresses she and Jake start to develop a friendship that turns into so much more.
They face some things together but with the summer coming to an end will Clover chose Jake or will she chose to leave for college? I have to say this I LOVED the ending it was an EPIC ending and I just wanted to cry and leap into the book!
Braxton Cole lives in the Pacific Northwest where she spends most of her time holed up in her office writing stories. When she's not writing, she can be found riding her bike, hiking the fabulous local trails, chasing her kids, or wishing that her thumb was a little more green.
She has a bad habit of killing what she tries to grow, but hasn't given up hopes of one day being a successful urban farmer. Braxton writes erotic romance because romance is the stuff that makes life great, and sex is fun. The two belong together, both in life and in fiction.
