The most romantic place she never wanted to be . . .
Pepper Knight moved to Everland, Georgia, as step one in her plan for a successful legal career. But after this big-city gal's plans go awry, going home with her tail between her legs isn't an option. So when the town vet-and her sexy new neighbor-offers Pepper a temporary dog-walking job, she jumps at the chance. No one needs to know that man's best friend is her worst nightmare . . . or that Everland's hot animal whisperer leaves her panting.
The last thing Rhett Valentine wants is to be the center of small-town gossip. After his first love left him at the altar, he's been there, done that. These days, life is simple, just the way he likes it. But sultry southern nights get complicated once sparks fly between him and the knockout next door. When she proposes a sexy, secret fling-all the deliciousness and none of the prying neighbors-it seems too good to be true. And it is. Because Pepper's determined to leave Love Street, and when she goes, she just might take his heart with her . . .
Riley starts her Everland, Georgia contemporary series with an enjoyable bit of fluff. Pepper Knight grew up in rural Maine, but she has her sights set on being a successful lawyer in New York City, and no irresistible small-town vet will get in her way. A summer serving as a judicial clerk in Everland was just supposed to be one stop on the road to a stable, responsible life. When the judge gives her job to someone else, Everland becomes a dead end. Local vet Rhett Valentine offers Pepper a job as a dog walker to help her get back on her feet, even though Pepper is terrified of dogs. The attraction between Pepper and Rhett is instant, and they also like each other enough to be good friends, filling this contemporary romance with jokes, lighthearted moments, and tender lovemaking. Rhett wants to explore their relationship but is skittish about the town's well-meaning gossips finding out. Pepper still plans to leave at the end of the summer and prefers to keep their fling a secret. Thanks to friendly townspeople, crotchety Scrabble players at the dog park, and an irrepressible younger sister, even city dwellers will see the appeal of falling in love while stranded in a small Southern coastal town.

Full of charm
It Happened on Love Street is a fun, hilarious southern romance.
Rhett and Pepper come from very different worlds. Rhett Valentine the most eligible bachelor in Everland. Whom is also the town Veterinarian. Likes to keep to himself, and out of the town gossip. That runs rampant all over. Pepper is new in town and finds herself at a loss.
This story was full of heart and at the same time totally hilarious. I’m not usually into Third POV but it had so much charm. I almost forgot that I was reading in that POV. Lia Riley is an excellent storyteller. I highly enjoyed this book and it will be interesting to read about what else goes on in Everland.
Overall, I give this Four Boundless Stars.
This is a cute, funny, and sometimes silly story that kept me completely entertained. Pepper and Rhett are such a cute couple and all the crazy townspeople and their antics had me laughing out loud. Pepper, originally from NY, comes to Everland for a job. Unfortunately she gets fired her first day on the job. Rhett, the local vet and Pepper's neighbor, helps find her a job as a fill in dog walker. The fact that Pepper is afraid of dogs shouldn't be a problem....right?? That's just the start of the hilarity in this story. Don't miss this one, I recommend it.
