REVIEW: Love Him or Leave Him by Sara Daniel

***This book was originally reviewed for GraveTells.***
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Summary:

Sometimes dreams are where you least expect them

Connor O’Malley and Becca Sanders were once high school sweethearts, ripped apart by rumors in the small town of Kortville, Illinois. Connor left to join the military, and Becca stayed, waiting for her younger brother to graduate so she could live her dreams of traveling the world. But now that Connor's back as the town sheriff, Becca finds herself struggling to resist the too-handsome man who once broke her heart.

Connor loves Kortville—its quaintness keeps at bay the painful memories of Afghanistan he’s sure make him unworthy of any woman, particularly the beautiful brunette he’s always secretly dreamed of a future with. But when a scandal rocks the town, suddenly Connor and Becca must trust in each other if they want to weather this storm…and come out on the other side of it together.

Thoughts:

I enjoyed this book plenty, but beware that this book starts off kind of sad. The history of the characters and between them is enough to make a girl cry a little. However, I enjoyed the town and its people, especially as they related to our couple. Connor is so sweet, and Becca is so dedicated and the people around them can’t help but be supportive.

You can tell there was a story before this one, but not in such a way that you feel like you’re missing anything, so this makes a fine standalone read. It’s well-written with good mystery, even if it’s a little predictable, good personal conflicts and character depth, and great chemistry even with closed door love scenes (which is disappointing, but I maybe I’m just a smut addict). The ending was very sweet and just gives you a warm fuzzy feeling of love, family, and community.
