After a tumultuous childhood, Harper Sims left her hometown and never looked back. She’s a partner in a successful veterinary practice and loves everything about her job and the big city life she leads with her teenage daughter.
Addison Foster had big dreams, but life hasn’t turned out the way she’d planned. Working as a veterinary assistant in a rural clinic gives her the chance to raise her daughter surrounded by the people she loves, but it’s not easy to be honest about who she really is and what she really wants in a small town.
When Harper’s father becomes ill, she whirls into town to run the clinic, and sparks fly between her and Addison in more ways than one. Their attraction is undeniable, but Addison isn’t ready to admit her desires, and Harper isn’t sure if she’s willing to stay.
Home may be where the heart is, but is the journey back worth the pain?
Blake (Kiss Me Every Day) delivers a by-the-numbers lesbian romance. Harper Sims was thrilled to leave her hometown and focus on her veterinary practice in Denver following her mother's death. But when her father has a heart attack, she heads back to Blueridge, Colo., to help out at his vet clinic while he recovers. The last thing she expects is to run into her childhood crush, Addison, who now works at the clinic as an assistant. Harper and Addison have been avoiding each other since an unexpected kiss at Harper's 16th birthday party, before Addison had come to terms with her sexuality. Now Addison has grown up and accepted herself, but she's still not out to her friends from high school. Despite initially butting heads, Harper and Addison's feelings reignite as they work together, and Harper helps Addison study for her online classes after hours. But Harper isn't sure how Addison's life in Blueridge will fit with hers in Denver, and she doesn't want to be with someone who's still in the closet. Despite some cute moments, the couple lacks chemistry, which leaves the story feeling flat. The result is a well-constructed but lackluster romance. \n
