Title- Love So True

Finally, Lucas Lawson is a free man. After serving five years in prison for embezzlement, he’s come home to Jessamine to right the wrongs he committed against his friends and family. But, it won’t be easy. For starters, the brother he’s looked up to his entire life wants nothing to do with him, and no one in town trusts Lucas enough to give him a chance to make amends. Until, Bailey Yates gives him a job at her family’s diner.
Single mom, Bailey Yates, has had enough of bad boys to last her the next eighteen years. She’s always been a sucker for them, and Jessamine’s ultimate bad boy, Lucas Lawson, is no exception. So, when he returns to town, naturally she’s drawn to him. And naturally, she must avoid him at all costs—no matter how sexy he is. She’ll give him a job, and keep her distance…until Lucas saves her son from a hit and run.
Bailey gives Lucas a hope for the future he hasn’t allowed himself to feel in years while Lucas melts Bailey’s heart every time he spends time with her son. Could he be the one to put her life back together? But when Lucas is accused of stealing from a local charity, Bailey must decide to support him or realize that some men are too good to be true.
Sometimes it is so refreshing to read a sweet contemporary romance that has limited to no drama; Love So True was that book for me! I read Love So Hot and fell in love with Brody and Sydney, and now it was time for me to fall in love with Lucas and Bailey.
It seems to me that all of these Lawson brothers seem to be such gentleman, never wanting to use the girl he is interested it. Even though Lucas had a bad rap he was a decent guy through and though. I loved him and Bailey with each other, as a reader I was able to feel the chemistry from the very beginning.
I also like how if you read the first book in the Lawson Brothers Series, you were able to see where those characters were now. Although, Brody was kind of a jerk to his brother and that made me a little upset. Those McCoy sisters were at it again, trying to play matchmaker. I cannot wait for one of their turns to be matched. Mrs. Lawson was so sweet while having her moment with Lucas, she reassured him that he was a great guy, and could make a great stepfather if that is what he wanted.
I am very interested in reading Mason’s story next!!
