He would do anything to convince her to take a chance on love!

Anna West just wanted to start over in a new town far away from her past. The only child of a mixed race couple, Anna had learned about the ugly side of human behavior at an early age. Watching her abusive father mistreat her mother, Anna knew that love was not for her.

Steven Carson had always known what he wanted, and from the moment he saw her, he wanted Anna. Steven was ready for love. He was ready to settle down, build a family, and he knew Anna was the one for him. Now all he had to do was convince her.

Come visit Holton, Texas to see if Steven can convince Anna to take a chance on love. Convince Me is the first book in the Holton Series but may be read as a standalone novel.

She would do all she could to make him notice her!

Andrew Moore had always thought of Victoria as family. She was his best friend’s little sister and his little sister’s best friend, but recently something had changed. Andrew was thinking about Victoria in a completely different way. She would never fit into his quiet, conservative world. They were too different to have a future together, but he couldn’t help noticing her.

Victoria Carson has been in love with Andrew since her sixteenth birthday, but Andrew never noticed her as anything other than his best friend’s little sister. She fled from her hometown so that she wouldn’t have to watch Andrew build a life with someone else. But things had changed. Andrew was now a widower, and Victoria had returned home. It was time to see if he would notice her.

Return to Holton, Texas to see if Victoria can get Andrew to notice her. Notice Me is the second book in the Holton Series but may be read as a standalone novel.

Rachel isn't looking for love, but she finds it with Paul. Will he learn to trust her?

Rachel Lewis hides her looks behind dark framed glasses and drab clothes. As the head librarian in Holton, she is satisfied with her life and her appearance. Rachel isn't looking for love or a relationship, but Paul captivates her. He lives in a completely different world, but she wants him more than she has ever wanted any other man.

Paul Hart is handsome, rich, and successful. As the owner of a thriving business, he is happy with short-term relationships and jaded women. Paul has been betrayed too many times to trust a woman, but Rachel intrigues him. She isn't like any other woman he has ever known. Can he learn to trust her?

Return to Holton, Texas for Victoria and Andrew’s wedding to see if Rachel can win Paul’s trust. Trust Me is the third book in the Holton Series but may be read as a standalone novel.


I am going to review these three books as a series, not individually.

First I want to say that these short stories deff kept me entertained. I would have to say they are predictable and fit a nice and neat cookie cutter mold. But that isn't always a bad thing. They were very easy to follow along and they made me feel emotion for the characters.

I love series that keep other characters involved throughout the books. That way you get to know them more and you can keep up their stories going.

My biggest issue with this series is that it was so short! I really felt like some of the court ships were rushed due to the length of the novella's. Other than that I really liked them!

I enjoyed the three couples, and how they all interacted together. I hope there will be a 4th book with Mitch and Emily. Pretty please?

Had these three stories been put together into a full length novel as one I would have probably enjoyed it a bit more because it would have felt a little less rushed but hey, to each author their own preference!

The series was still great and I really liked  the authors writing style.

Overall I'm giving this series a 4 star review!!
