Did you fall in love with The English Brothers? Were you hot for the Winslows? Katy Regnery's New York Times bestselling Blueberry Lane series continues with The Rousseau siblings in Summer 2016!

Jacqueline "Jax" Rousseau is vivacious, rich, smart and beautiful,but that doesn't mean she's lucky in love: she's dated doctors, lawyers, actors and politicians who've all managed to end up disappointing her. In fact, she's on a self-imposed hiatus from love when she has an unpleasant run-in with her neighbor's gorgeous new landscaper, Gardener Thibodeaux. Jax is not accustomed to gruff, ill-mannered men that can't be charmed, but when he saves her skin, she realizes that something about Gard intrigues her...and if she can find her way through the armor that surrounds his heart, she might finally find a love that won't let her down.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I've been looking forward to reading this book greatly and I've got to say now that I have I'm not disappointed. I loved every minute of this book.

This is the first in the Rousseau's series. It's actually a part of the larger world of the blueberry lane books so, it's new but with a familiar feel which I loved.

This story follows Jacqueline, otherwise known as Jax, Rousseau. She is taking a break from her normal life and deciding what direction she'd like her life to go. Here she meets the delectable Gardener Thibodeaux.

I loved reading their story. Their attraction is off the charts and super romantic with some humour thrown in too. I read a lot of genres but I've got to say that one of my favourites will always be romance. Good, old fashioned, swoon-worthy romance. The type that leaves you with a warm squishy sensation in your belly and finish with a great big smile on your face. Having said this though very few writers seem to get this right, throwing in needless angst etc that just doesn't work IMO. Not so with Katy Regnery. She is a true master of romance. Her writing draws you in and connects you to the characters immediately so that you genuinely care about what happens to them.

Jax was a great heroine. She is sassy and sweet but vulnerable as well. I really liked her. Gard was completely swoon worthy and yumtastic! lol. He was everything I wanted him to be and more. He was strong and protective but just a little bit broken too. I loved their journey together.

It was also great to catch up with other characters from previous books in the blueberry lane series and have a look at future characters too. I can't wait to read more about them.

I really enjoyed every minute of this and would definitely recommend to romance fans. It is part of a series but can easily be read as a stand alone. You'll probably want to read the others after reading this though lol. I can't wait for the next book!
