Know Me Well: A Small Town Southern Romance (Wishful Romance Book 2) by Kait Nolan

WARNING: Contains a sexy ex-marine, a stubborn, independent woman, and an incurably romantic BFF with matchmaking tendencies.Welcome back to Wishful, Mississppi, full of eccentric characters and southern charm, where author Kait Nolan delivers another heart-warming story of a strong, successful woman and the equally strong man who learns how to be her partner.Liam Montgomery is the last person who’d call himself a hero, but he does have a tendency to try to save the world. Now that he’s left the Marine Corps and returned to Wishful, he feels out of place and unsure of what comes next. He does know one thing: The girl who used to look up to him like a brother is all grown up. No way he can see her as a little sister now. And she won’t give him the time of day.Riley Gower isn’t holding out for a hero. In fact, a knight in shining armor is the last thing she wants. She’s been watching her mother chase that fairy tale for most of her life, with Riley the one left to pick up the pieces of unhappily ever after. Running Wishful’s downtown pharmacy is a dream Riley’s worked toward for years. Now that the business is finally hers, the realities of the current economy have made it seem like the dream is falling apart. So when her mother calls, expecting yet another rescue, Riley feels like she’s spread thinner than the last pat of butter at Sunday dinner.It’s hard enough for a woman like Riley to admit she could use a hand, but mixed up with the embarrassment of a childhood crush and the devastating attraction sizzling between them? No way. Liam is determined to help, but taking down insurgents is less complicated than infiltrating Riley’s defenses. This will require reinforcements. And a plan.Q: What makes the Wishful series special? Wishful is a collection of southern romance novels honoring my Mississippi roots. When I started the series, I set out to highlight everything that I love about living in the small town South–all our quirks, foibles, and dreams provide a fabulous (and often funny) backdrop to contemporary romances about stubborn, independent women and the men who love them. Q: Who would dig these books?Wishful is a southern romance series written for anyone looking for love in a small town. If you loved Hart of Dixie and miss the residents of Bluebell, you just might fall in love with Wishful. It’s a town where everybody knows your name and hope springs eternal! My many of my readers also enjoy the books of Susan Elizabeth Phillips, Kristan Higgins, Melanie Shawn, Ava Miles, and Jill Shalvis.Q: What order should I read the books in?This southern romance series has been written so that each story is a standalone that wraps up with a happily ever after by The End. That said, if you want to read them in chronological order I suggest this:* To Get Me To You (Cam and Norah)* Be Careful, It’s My Heart (Brody and Tyler)* Know Me Well (Liam and Riley)* Just For This Moment (Myles and Piper)* Wish I Might (Reed and Cecily), part of the Virtually Yours anthology* Turn My World Around (Tucker and Corinne) Q: Are there crossovers with other series?YES! My Meet Cute Romance series of novelettes includes two Wishful stories.* Once Upon A Coffee (predates To Get Me To You)* Once Upon A Setup (the prequel to Just For This Moment)And my Wishing For A Hero series is more of the small town romance you love with a darker tone and shot of suspense.*If I Didn’t Care (Autumn and Judd)
