Unlikely to Stay (A Parker Lake Novel #3) by Olivia Sherwood

This isn’t the first book I’ve read by the author.

CC is a hairdresser and loves her job. The older ladies are driving her mad with new colors and it’s making her job harder. Then a big fundraiser comes around making her friends buy her a date from the auction. The quote I chose for CC is: “I’m almost finished and then you’ll have to sit for a bit while the color sets. Then I’ll style it up and you can be on your way. I’ll have you looking like a shamrock in no time.”

Brant is new to town and working his way through school. Taking the job in Parker proves difficult, but he’s loving it. Especially when he meets CC and goes out with her. The quote I chose for Brant is: “It’s an honor. Totally what I went to nursing school to do.”

Highly recommended for Romantic Comedy lovers.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is such a beautiful romance. Annie is such a wild, strong woman that isn’t afraid to be different and I absolutely love that about her! Her granny sounded like such a fun person and she really learned her love for animals and living life to the fullest from her. I really enjoyed the humor sprinkled throughout the sweet moments of romance and the way that Annie and Wyatt heal each other. Wyatt is so haunted and a shell of who he used to be when he returns home. Luckily he ends up asking Annie for a job and she starts to wriggle her way under his rough exterior from the very first meeting. They’re so adorable as they’re getting to know each other and growing closer. They have a couple of obstacles to work through but the ending is amazing and it definitely made me tear up. This is a book that you won’t want to miss.

This was a very sweet romance, with beautiful characters and a plot that flowed perfectly. This sweet romance was absolutely perfect with a small town setting, second chances, chemistry, and so much more I simply couldn’t put it down. While this is a new author to me I simply just can’t wait to see what happens next. Both Annabelle and Wyatt were charming, endearing and loveable characters. The story between these two was so perfect that you can’t help but cheer for them from the sidelines. I can’t wait to see what this author has in store for us next.

Unlikely to Fit by Olivia Sherwood

This is the first book I’ve read by the author. The author sure had me hooked from the beginning. It was hard for me to put down once I started. This is the second book in the Parker Lake Novels.

Breckin has lost her husband to a newly graduated cheerleader. When she doesn’t leave town to get away from the gossip it may be a good thing. She meets Griff who is a gentleman and she can’t wait. If only she could get to work on time. The quote I chose for Breckin is: “Ugh! For the love of everything holy, please get the damn donkey out of the middle of the road!”

Griff comes home after the horrible loss of his girlfriend. He takes over taking care of his grandmother and running her around for errands. He also takes over his grandfather’s bar and when he meets Breckin he thinks he may have a chance. The quote I chose for Griff is: “It doesn’t really bother me. I met her dad at Meemaw’s party. I like him. Plus, I know Meemaw posted a picture of his butt on Instagram so I kind of have the upper hand on him.”

Highly recommended for Romantic Comedy lovers.

Unlikely in Love (A Parker Lake Novel Book 1) by Olivia Sherwood is the first book I have read by this author but it definitely won’t be my last. I loved the characters in this book, they were written so well that I felt like they were old friends instead of characters I was starting to get to know. I especially liked the names Sophia gave her farm animals, absolutely hilarious. The interactions between Annabelle and Wyatt are both funny and touching.
Annabelle has just inherited a farm from her grandmother who recently passed away. Only problem is she has absolutely no idea how to run it. Thankfully for her Wyatt has just returned from his third tour and is willing to help her out. In the past these two seemed to pass each other like ships in the night but now? Now it looks like they might just have a second chance at a lasting love.
This book had me laughing, crying, and at some points actually yelling at the characters. This author certainly knows have to paint a picture with her words and I definitely have to give that picture a five star rating. Thank you for the start of what looks like an amazing series. I look forward to the next entry in the series.

I’ve packed my bags and am ready to move to Parker Lake!

Olivia Sherwood gave me a warm and fuzzy feeling, deciding to take to expand my authors to read list. Unlikely in Love didn’t disappoint. I am a true believer in “everything happens for a reason,” and this love story seems to be in the same boat. All great things take time, and when it comes to the two main characters, Wyatt and Annie, the time these two have put into those they love, and care for, while fighting hard to make the world a better place, is never-ending.

From the first chapter, you’re swept into a whirlwind of emotions, and it is as though nothing else matters, all you want to do is learn more about Annie, Wyatt, their best friends, and the trials and tribulations that have paved a path for them to return to one another. Being an outcast in high school, myself, I found Annie’s character to be totally relatable, and the inner turmoil she experiences, had me covered in goosebumps as I really got to know her. I am so looking forward to following these characters into this series, as I cannot wait until I get to return to Parker and see what the extraordinary Olivia Sherwood has in store for us.

Looking for a great summer read? Pick up the first book in the Parker Lake series, you will not be disappointed!

Unlikely in Love is the first book in the Parker Lake Series by Olivia Sherwood. I’m a big fan of Olivia’s and love all of her books. This series looks to be one of my favorites. The amazing way Ms. Sherwood weaves the characters and the small town atmosphere made me feel like I was part of the story. My husband thought I was a little crazy when I was talking to my kindle…. I just couldn’t put this book down. It had my attention from the first page to the last. It brought on a great range of emotions from happy to sad to angry.

This story brings together Annabelle Cleaver and Wyatt Holloway. I love the witty dialog between the characters. This is a love story about learning to trust and healing wounds. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves a great romance. Olivia Sherwood is on my TBR list and she has never let me down with any of her books.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Unlikely in Love by Olivia Sherwood is A Parker a Lake Novel book one.

Annabelle didn’t expect that she would end up solely responsible for her grandmother’s farm. She had no idea what this meant for the future or what she was going to do next. That is until Wyatt Holloway shows up at her door and asks for a job. Of course Annabelle remembers Wyatt, who wouldn’t? Wyatt wasn’t going to ask Annabelle for a job but after three tours overseas he needs something to distract him now that he’s home. Wyatt can’t believe he forgot about Annabelle but what will happen now that he’s back? Will there be a spark between them after all this time?

I really enjoyed this book. Annabelle is strong and real. I really enjoyed her character. This book has a little bit of everything, including some laughs. Boy, Sophie was quite the character. I definitely recommend!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

It’s impossible for two broken people to be in a relationship, or is it.

Wyatt James Holloway did three tours overseas and he’s seen the worst of the worst. He doesn’t really believe that there’s allot of good left in the world.
He really struggles with PTSD and the scar on his face is a constant reminder of the stuff he just wants to put in his past.

Annabelle Cleaver just lost the person she loved the most in the entire world. Granny was the one who took her in when even her mother didn’t want her and now, now that person is gone and she has to pick herself up and through her Granny the craziest “Life Celebration”. Even with all the planning she can’t help but feel lost.

In steps Mr. Hot Army Muscles, Wyatt Holloway, her old high school crush and he wants a job, and what does Annie do? She gives him one of course.

The sexual tension can be cut with a knife and the more the work together the more they start to feel for each other. Will these two broken people be able to heal each other or will old scars and relationships break them?

The reason I gave this book a five star rating was purely because of the way it was written and the way the story flows. The story progresses at a nice slow and easy pace. They don’t just jump into bed the first time they see each other. As the story flows you think that this relationship is moving perfectly and just when you think everything is perfect Olivia surprises us and throws us a curve ball. (and makes me stay up past two in the morning just to finish it.)

Definitely found a new author to follow.

Two broken hearts melting together to heal each other. Annabelle Cleaver is a lost soul when her only family member, her beloved Grannie Sophie passes away leaving Annie her 10+ acre farm. Wyatt Hallway is the high school all star who has just recently returned from serving in the military and needs honest good work to help push the demons of overseas away. But what neither of them realize is years of love right in front of their faces. This book was pure, good old fairy tale love.

This was a great 2nd chance romance. I was pulled in right from the beginning.

Annabelle has recently lost her grandmother and now has the farm. She also gets some shocking news that will help her make the much needed repairs on the farm.

Wyatt is home from the military and is taking one day at a time. His dad convinces him to go talk to Annabelle about working on the farm. Wyatt remembers Annabelle from school but is intrigued by the woman she has become. As these two start working together old feelings start to reignite.

Can these two find what they are missing in each other?

Overall I really enjoyed this read. The characters were great and the author pulls you right in with her writing. Their story pulls at your heartstrings. Will they get a HEA? I look forward to reading more from this series and author. 1-click and get started today.

Unlikely in Love was such a cute story! It is the first book in Olivia Sherwood’s Parker Lake series, and the first I have read by her. I will be back for more, as I loved her writing style. The characters are all so relateable and authentic. The story was romantic but kept clean, giving me the happily ever after I wanted. The book tells the story of Annabelle and Wyatt. Annabelle had a rough childhood and dreams of leaving town. That was short lived, as her grandmother got sick and she had to return home. Now her grandmother has passed away, leaving her with a run down farmhouse that she cant bear to give up. Wyatt is back home after 3 overseas tours, and a medical discharge from the hospital. He lives at home with his parents and struggles keeping busy, to keep the nightmares away. These unlikely incidents brought the two together, when Wyatt takes a job as a handyman on her farm. What was once a high school crush that both were too afraid to act on, could be turned into something more. If they can only let themselves love again.

Unlikely in Love is the first novel in the Parker Lake series by Olivia Sherwood and it is amazing! I absolutely love novels that have the country setting like this one and the world that the author built in this novel is wonderful.

Annie finds herself really at a new chapter in her life. Her only family member just passed away and she finds herself with a farm to take care of. When word gets through town that she may need some help, help comes knocking from a surprising source.

Wyatt is trying to find himself. After serving multiple tours overseas, adjusting to civilian life has been a struggle. But he has to find something to do becuase his parents are driving him a bit crazy.

I absolutely loved the Annie, Wyatt, their friends and family, and the entire town of Parker. I don’t see that there are other novels in this series yet, but I anxiousky wait another!

This is one couple that you will root for to overcome tragedy to find love and triumph together. One has lost her grandmother only to find out she is now a millionaire. She will be staying to continue running the farm (with lots of life challenges ahead). The other is a returned vet with PTSD just looking for a calm job. He finds that working on the farm brings him peace. Together they work to overcome trials and find they are falling for each other. Can they get through the challenges? Will the voodoo get them (a gift from granny? along with her love of pink?) I laughed so hard at times through this book. Grandma Sophie reminded me of my grandma and her hijinks. Love the plot of the book. It was totally realistic. I look forward to reading more in this series.

I want to start off by saying I had very low expectations for this book. I am so not a small town romance reader. Give me dark, taboo, and crazy any day of the week over a small town in the middle of nowhere. However, this story made me take a double take. I couldn’t stop a smile from creeping onto my face when I started reading about dearly departed Sophie Cleaver. That woman made me think about my own crazy but lovable grandma.

I related so much to poor Annie as tried to figure out what life would be like after her biggest cheerleader was gone. I was so happy that she and Wyatt found each other. I feel like Ms. Sophie made sure to work her “voodoo” and sent her baby girl someone so she wouldn’t be alone for long. I will definitely have to read the next book in this series.

This was my first time reading this author and it will not be the last!! I have a deep love for sweet, romantic stories; especially ones that have military men in them!

Having grown up in a small town, I was drawn into this story immediately. Everybody knows everyone and everything that is going on. When Wyatt came back from his overseas tours a changed man, all he needs is a good woman to heal his fractured soul. Even if he doesn’t know it!
Annabelle was the odd girl out in school that marched to the beat of her own drum, and still does. When she and Wyatt start working together, it’s only a matter of time before they realize that their rhythm is one in the same!

Knowing that this is the first book in this series… I am hoping that the next ones focus on her best friends finding love in their small town, too (especially with one or more of Wyatt’s friends!)! Can’t wait for the next book!

This was a lovely sweet romance set in a small Oklahoma town with a second chance at love theme. The storyline flowed well and had some very touching moments and some very funny moments which along with the wonderful characters kept me happily turning the pages. Annabelle Cleaver (Annie) inherits her grandma’s farm when she dies which results in Annie having to change her plans of leaving her small home town. Then to complicate things further for Annie her high school crush Wyatt returns to town asking for a job on her farm and she discovers he’s still as sexy as ever, if a little broken. Wyatt Holloway has returned to his childhood town a broken man haunted by the three tours overseas he took whilst serving in the army. Wyatt is surprised to find that Annie, the beautiful if quirky girl he remembers from high school is still in town and needs help on her family farm and that he is still drawn to her.

Even though it’s ten years since the pair met neither can deny that the attraction and chemistry is still there but will they get their happy ever after or not. I fell in love with Annie and Wyatt as they are both such likeable and relatable characters and their chemistry really came across in the story. The descriptive narrative bought both the small town and farm setting to life along with the characters, which made me feel immersed in the storyline. This is an enjoyable and engaging heartwarming romance and I look forward to future books in this series. I have also discovered a new favourite author in Olivia Sherwood.

By Olivia Sherwood

This was such a sweet romantic story. Annabelle is very much alone now that her grandmother Sophie has passed away. I loved hearing all the stories about Sophie, who everyone in their small town thought was crazy. Sophie was a fun loving eccentric big hearted woman. Annabelle was also seen as a strange kid growing up in the small town. She does have 2 great best friends and I hope to learn more about them in the books to come. Wyatt also grew up in this small town but didn’t run in the same crowd as Annabelle. He is back home after being in the military, he has some scars on the outside and inside and is trying to work through some stuff. The chemistry between these two is off the charts and I was rooting for them the entire time. These characters are very relatable and I felt like I was right there in the story with them. This was an enjoyable read and I can’t wait to read the next one in this series. I highly recommend this book.

Unlikely In Love is the first book in the Parker Lake series by Olivia Sherwood. This was a new author to me but I was interested in the blurb and decided to give it a go. I’m very glad I chose to as I really enjoyed this book.
I loved the female lead Annabelle (Annie) and the camaraderie that she has with her best friends. I’m envious of people who have that kind of relationship with their friends. They support one another but are not scared to have a laugh at their friend’s expense too and they sure do when Annie’s childhood crush Wyatt comes on the scene.
I also adored Wyatt, the male lead. I loved his sexy flirty ways that he had with Annie as he was trying to get under her skin and make her flustered. I really enjoyed reading the growing friendship and then budding romance between these two. The book is very well written and the storyline flows freely and keeps you engaged in the story from the very beginning right up until the very end.
I really enjoyed this book and I’m looking forward to reading more of this series.

This is the first book that I have read in awhile that immediately grabbed my heart strings and pulled until I was so invested, I forgot to eat! Annabelle’s story in itself would have been enough to base a story off of – her relationship with Sophia, her best friends in the world, and the small town that loves her as much as she loves it. Then came Wyatt. Lord. Have. Mercy. The man has obviously been through a lot, but after three tours, a constant reminder on his face, PTSD, and a broken heart he finds himself back in his small hometown and it can only get better from here. Will they? Won’t they? Is it a good idea? Is there more to this than what meets the eye? This story had everything my romantic heart desired and kept me wanting more on every page. I’m looking forward to reading the rest of this series and whatever else Olivia comes out with.
