Blurb: Jefferson Lee Davis, Holly Creek’s new Director of Publicity, is gearing up for the next big town event, the summer Rose Festival. The job is running smoothly, but the course of true love has hit a rocky patch. His hunky boyfriend, Sheriff Zane Yarbrough, is receiving mysterious phone calls he doesn’t want to discuss.
While Jefferson Lee is blindsided by jealousy, the second shoe drops with the appearance of a handsome stranger in the small tight-knit community. Needing answers, Jefferson Lee enlists his best gal-pal Clover Crofton to help find out what secrets Zane is hiding. When they land themselves in more trouble than Jefferson Lee bargained for, he and Zane face the first big test of their relationship.
Zane and Jefferson Lee must work through their trust issues if they’re going to make it as a couple, and Clover may just have a thing or two to learn herself.
Review: Spring Fever picks up roughly where Dogwood Days left off and it’s just as amazing as Dogwood Days, maybe even better! But, if you have any plans to read this without previously reading Dogwood Days, I’m afraid that’s not going to work. Spring Fever has the same cast of charming, funny, crazy, amazing characters as Dogwood Days and the main characters are still Sheriff Zane and Jefferson Leigh.
There’s a new guy in town and his name is Troy. You see, Troy is six feet of perfection. A blond hunk of a man who’s taking too much of Zane’s time. Jefferson Leigh just KNOWS something’s up. Because Zane is suddenly very secretive, unwilling to talk about Troy, and was seen at Troy’s house the night he was supposed to be away on duty. Is Troy someone from Zane’s past that is back and wants another shot at Zane? Well have no fear, undercover agents Jefferson Leigh and Clover will get to the bottom of this mystery!
If you’ve read Dogwood Days, you probably remember how hilarious and dangerous Clover and Jefferson Leigh are together. I had a smile on my face the entire time those two plotted and found ways to get in trouble. Clover is just as hilarious as you remember and they’re so ridiculously over the top they’re downright charming!
I want to move over there and move in next to Zane’s house, because I heard his blinds always stay open and there’s plenty of dirty things taking place in that house. Like Jefferson Leigh getting fucked against a wall. Holy fuck, I NEED to see that!!!
This story is brilliantly written. Because, while I laughed with Clover and Jefferson Leigh, I also felt those icy fingers down my spine when Troy came around.
I would say this is almost a cliffhanger, because the story ends in such a way that makes it obvious there’s more coming up. Hopefully soon!
Don’t worry, Zane and Jefferson Leigh are just fine…
