Parks and Provocation, an all new enemies-to-lovers small town romance from Juliette Cross, is LIVE in Kindle Unlimited!

Lola Landry stares through the window of her locked car with the keys in the ignition and the radio blaring Beck’s “Loser.” While standing there and sweltering in the soupy Tennessee humidity, she wonders how her orderly life had crashed and burned so badly. Then her high school nemesis saunters up in all of his tall, strapping, fireman-to-the-rescue glory, slapping her with the humiliating proof that it can always get worse.

When the uber-confident Jedediah Lawson requests a date in return for popping her lock, a lightbulb goes off. Revenge is sweet. He would make the perfect victim—guest, that is—for her next podcast episode on Kiss and Tell. What shocks her is the casual way he not only agrees to the post-date interview on air, but ends up hijacking her audience and wooing them with his swoony, southern charm. Not even a low score on the date-o-meter can dissuade the man or keep her fans from demanding more of the charismatic Jed.

What’s worse, she secretly wants a second date with this man who is so different from his teenage self. His unwavering patience and dimpled smile erodes her will, until she breaks the Kiss and Tell rules by agreeing to a second…and a third date. It’s a disaster. Not the date. They’re wonderful. The disaster is that she is falling for a man she once dubbed Jockstrap Jed.

‘Parks and Provocation’ is a full-length contemporary romance and can be read as a standalone. Book #2 in the Green Valley Heroes series, Green Valley Chronicles, Penny Reid Book Universe.

My Review...

Green Valley Heros

I so love the Smartypants Romance world! They have introduced me to a fantastic group of authors! Ms. Cross is definitely one of them.

This story of Lola and Jedidiah, it is swoony, steamy and deliciously funny!

This is a story of high school nemesis between Coca Cola Lola and Jockstrap Jed. Teenagers with typical teenage hangups and insecurities.  Lola leaves after high school for college and a big new job in a big new city.

Time passes and Lola finds herself back in Green Valley, to lick her wounds and reset her life. Her big city job wasn’t all it was cracked up to be.

When Lola and Jed see each other again, the sparks fly off the pages! The chemistry between these two is molten hot and I loved the dual POV’s! The inner dialogue of Jed is phenomenal and Lola’s internal struggle was magic on the page.

Jed is a total dreamboat and I loved the patience and the determination in him to keep what he wants.

Lola is fantastic, she is trying to find her way in the world and overcomes herself to do it properly!

This story makes me want to be a part of the Green Valley community even more!
