Synopsis from Goodreads
He’s rude. Arrogant. And too hot to handle.
And she’s stranded with him for an entire week.
He knows the sexy stranger doesn’t belong in his small town, but he’s determined to keep her there. The second she opens her smart mouth, he wants to swap a whole lot more than insults with her.
She’s got a secret. But he’s got his own agenda.
Kendall Ryan knocks the romance out of the park with Sexy Stranger.
Charlotte is a society girl from New York where her life was controlled by her parents and their place in society, which they value more than their relationship with their daughter. Charlotte flees her gilded cage only to breakdown on route to her best friend, Valentina, in LA.
Shady Grove is a picture perfect small town where everyone knows everyone else and there is always someone to lend a hand and strangers stand out like sore thumbs. Yet, everything within Charlotte clicks into place when she spends time in Shady Grove – especially after meeting the delicious Luke.
With twins names Luke and Duke anyone else immediately think of Dukes of Hazard or is that just me showing my age, lol.
Luke has had his fair share of relationship problems in the past mostly linked to how small town life can make some people feel trapped. Projecting his issues onto Charlotte, he isn’t willing to risk any future fallout by making himself vulnerable, essentially breaking both his own heart and Charlotte’s in the process.
The relationship between Luke and Charlotte is full of sparks, although it does progress quickly, it is effortless, they quite simply fit together in all aspects of their lives.
I adored Luke’s family dynamic and am crossing my fingers Duke and Molly get their own stories in the future.
Charlotte’s character growth through Sexy Stranger was astounding, I loved watching her realise who she was and what she wanted from life.
Sexy Stranger proves everything happens for a reason, finding where you belong and who you belong with ♥
