Sunny Shelly’s Review: One Look by Lena Hendrix

One Look by Lena Hendrix is now live!

I’m a full time single dad. A former NFL player turned coach, tasked with turning around a college team full of kids who either don’t take it seriously or are determined to get injured. I will absolutely not be falling for my new neighbor, despite the number of times my meddling brothers try to set us up.

Lark Butler is pure chaos wrapped in gorgeous, infuriating sunshine. She showed up out of nowhere—getting paid to cry at a funeral, no less. Who does that? But somewhere between offering her condolences and crawling out of a literal grave site, we’ve found ourselves tangled in the drama of Outtatowner, Michigan-my coastal hometown with a decades-old feud and two aunties determined to end it.

I’m finally putting down roots so my daughter has a normal life and I need to forget about Lark. Forget the way it felt the night we kissed or what it’s like to finally take something just for me. But when those sparks ignited, it was more intense than either of us bargained for.

Trouble is, I can’t trust her, and she never stays.

She’s burning my carefully laid plans to the ground and all it took was one look.

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 4 Stars

One Look was a charming new small-town series starter from Lena Hendrix! I was hooked on Wyatt and Lark’s connection from the moment they met after she’d fallen in a grave. HILARIOUS! The connection between these two characters was lovely, and this book had all the small-town feels that I have come to expect (and love!) from Lena. This story is ripe with a sweet and sexy romance, family drama, and meddling townsfolk. And you have to love the name of Outtatowner!

College football coach Wyatt had only planned to hop in and out for a family friend’s funeral, but being back in town for just one night made him realize how much he and his young daughter, Penny, were missing out on by being away from his family. Lark, meanwhile, was only in town for an acting gig (as a paid mourner — hilarious!) but felt a connection to Outtatowner and decided to stick around for a bit. Eventually, Lark begins working as Wyatt’s assistant/nanny to help him organize his life, watch Penny, and mind the three college athletes in his care for the summer. Their connection slowly progressed in this slow-burn romance and built up to an explosion. Boy, is Wyatt a dirty talker!

As much as I adored Wyatt and Lark, I loved the setup for the other brothers and sister Kate and can’t wait to see what comes next in this series!

I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
