REVIEW - ONLY YOU by Heatherly Bell

It is quiet in Tatas and More, the lingerie shop for full-figured women, and Mallory Gilham is folding boy shorts reflecting on how she arrived in Starlight Hill when she hears the bell announcing a customer.  Only this is definitely not their normal clientele.

When she starts to welcome him to the store he first shushes her before crouching down behind the banana hammock's display. It is a rare occurrence to see a man in their store...especially one using their store as a hideout. And definitely gorgeous men who are built like a football running back.

Liam Tyrlock is visiting family in California for two weeks while deciding whether to re-enlist in the Army Rangers, but all the females in his family keep trying to shove phone numbers at him despite his telling them he is returning to Colorado and not interested in dating.

But he realizes the answer is right before him. He needs a date for the wine festival and all he needs is a fake girlfriend and who better than the beautiful woman in front of him.

I loved this book! It is very well written and the characters are fully developed and relatable. Although this is a standalone novel you will find that the secondary characters are recurring and have had their stories told in previous books.

Mallory is trying to rebuild her reputation in the small town that she landed in six months ago after leaving her life behind in Texas after her boyfriend hit her. Her bad choice of modeling lingerie after hours caused a scandal she was trying hard to overcome. The last thing she needs is to get involved with a man. Especially one who is leaving town.

Liam is having a hard time deciding whether to re-enlist or partner with his friend in a ski resort. Although he comes from a huge supportive family his guilt of leaving his brothers in arms is weighing on him heavily.

I loved this book! It is very well written and the characters are fully developed and relatable. There are tons of secondary characters in this story and all of them are determined to interfere in Liam's life. If you want a small-town rom-com with some heat this is a book for you. Highly recommend!
