Raelynn Pierce leads a happy life in a small Georgia town with her daughter, even though her confidence as a woman has been damaged because of her ex-husband.  The whole neighborhood has been checking out the new neighbor, but it’s Raelynn who gets quality time with him after he crashes his car in her yard.  A snow storm might have forced them together, but molten desire had them making out on the couch like teenagers. 

Alec Nakamura is a widowed father who hasn’t thought about getting involved with a woman until Raelynn.   Attraction quickly leads to some of the best sex they’d ever had.  Their weekend romp could turn into something long term if Raelynn’s insecurities don’t get in the way.  Can Alec deal with that and the nosey neighbors? 

Raelynn and Alec are comfortable together.  When they decide to read a book of sexual positions together, their relationship transcends a new level.  The couple wasn’t shy, especially when it came to Page 93. Raelynn was a curious mix because on one hand, she seemed reserved but on the other hand, that woman had some brass balls.  I was shocked by her honesty more than once.  Alec had no idea what he was in for when he moved next door to Raelynn.  He was such a good sport about the neighbors.  After learning how his wife died, my heart went out to him.   

In such a short time, they truly got to know each other.  Maggie Montgomery reminded me of the pros and cons of living in a small town.  Her description of the neighbors brought me fond memories and I actually visualized some of the scenes.  My favorite scene happened when Alec and Raelynn walked to the store and had a tense moment with a neighbor, Mary Jo.  Page 93 has an adorable down home feeling that readers are sure to like.  If you love Southern charm, you will appreciate this short romance.
