Sunny With A Chance of True Love {Book Review}

Title: Sunny With A Chance of True Love {The Ballad of Ugly Ross}
Author: Jessie Evans
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Book Description:
A sweet and steamy Lonesome Point Novella by New York Times Bestselling author Jessie Evans
One voice can save a life; one heart can bring you home...

Ross Dyer is ready to give up on love. The sweet, sleepy-eyed cowboy has always danced to the tune of a different drummer, but after being dumped by his latest girlfriend, he's beginning to think he'll spend his life dancing--and sleeping--alone. Add in the impending failure of his newly opened restaurant, due to a smear campaign being waged by his childhood nemesis, and Ross doesn't have much reason to care if the armadillo sees his shadow on Armadillo Day. Whether Lonesome Point has six more weeks of winter or not, his life forecast is looking more foul than fair.

And then she comes home and nothing is the same again.

Fourteen years ago, Elodie Prince was a scared little girl who was neglected at home and bullied at school. In her dark world, the only light was a sweet boy everyone called Ugly Ross, who, to her, was always beautiful. When she returns to Lonesome Point to find her childhood friend has grown into a man as handsome as he is kind, she can't help falling in love.

Elodie and Ross dive head first into Happily Ever After, but find their future threatened by a vicious blast from the past. Because some bullies never grow up, they only grow meaner, and more determined to snuff out the lights of the things that shine.
My Review:
You know when you have an author's you really enjoy reading and you'd love to review one of their books. Well Jessie Evans is one of those authors for me. And I'm so happy I finally got to review one of her books. Or in this case a novella. 

This story follows "Ugly Ross" and "Stinky Elodie" who were bullied when they were younger. This story touched a special place with me. Not because I was bullied as a kid. But because my own children have been bullied. 

Than skipping ahead 14 years where "Ugly Ross" and "Stinky Elodie" aren't so Ugly or Stinky anymore. When they run into each other again. You can feel the instant attraction between Ross and Elodie. 

I instantly fell in love with Ross and Elodie's characters. This story was such a sweet and short story. Jessie Evans really knows how to pull you into a story no matter the length. And after the stories I've been reading lately this was a nice change. 
You can purchase Sunny With A Chance of True Love on Amazon, iBooks and on Kobo
