Sweet Love and Country Roads

Camilla Isley

First Comes Love
Contemporary Romance
Falling for the wrong cowboy never felt so good . . . Samantha Baker is a high-flying movie producer living in New York City. She loves her shoes, drinking cosmopolitans, and wouldn’t trade the comforts of city life for anything in the world. But when her job is put on the line, Samantha has no other choice than to move to the middle of nowhere to straighten out the filming of her latest romantic comedy blockbuster. Her new country home has no Starbucks, no Pilates, and the one pub in town has never heard of appletinis—only serves beer and whiskey neat. On the plus side, the views are scenic. And not just for the aerial shots, as the local eye-candy provides a welcome distraction. At least until Samantha discovers a native cowboy, Travis Hunt, is the source of all her troubles… And the battle begins. Each has something the other wants, but as Samantha and Travis go head to head, they might discover the endgame has changed. When hate turns to heat, all becomes fair in love and war for these two sworn enemies who’ve been playing a game of hearts. But will a roll in the hay be enough to make Samantha decide there’s no sex in the city and convert to country living?

This book contains:

  • Mentions of the death of a parent
  • Sick parent.

Samantha is an Executive Producer for a film company who’s dedicated to her career and her life in Manhattan. She’s fiery, sassy, takes no prisoners and makes sure she does it while looking amazing in Manhattan style and shoes, regardless of where she is.

Travis is the Mayor of his small town and he’ll do pretty much anything to help his town improve and survive. After the COVID-19 pandemic wreaked havoc on the economy and almost every industry his mission while a movie is being filmed in his town is to use them to get as much revenue and improvements into his town as possible. Even if Samantha hate’s him for it.

Samantha has to leave her comfortable Manhattan lifestyle to head to the small town in rural Indiana where her latest movie is being filmed because there seem to be some issues with staying on time and within budget. When she gets there, she meets Travis and pretty quickly things turn sour between the two.

As Samantha gets her movie back on track, Travis always seems to be around and it’s infuriating for Samantha who just wants to get back to Manhattan as soon as possible.

Camilla writes some really fun contemporary romances, and this is no exception. With an appearance from Christian and Lana, we’re back in the First Comes Love series. Following the almost typical for this series trope of enemies-to-lovers, Samantha and Travis need to overcome a lot to find their way together. And not just their competing motivations, but also the distance between their homes.

With Samantha’s endless supply of inappropriate (for the rural town) clothing and shoes, there were so many moments that had me laughing. Those little moments of Samantha being so out of her element in the rural setting compared to Manhattan that made some of the small and seemingly inconsequential funny were what made this book what it is.
