Sofia Kendrick has always cherished her tiara. As the youngest daughter of a wealthy New York family, she’s lived the life of an American princess. But after two scandalous divorces and a breakup smear her name across the society rags, the shine from her crown has dulled. People call her superficial, even gaudy.
She’s nothing more than tinsel.
Desperate for escape and starving for peace, Sofia heads to Montana for a holiday weekend with her brother. But she doesn’t get the relaxing vacation she planned. Instead, she’s put to work in a bar alongside Dakota Magee—a man who does not want her help. A man who is set on teaching her a few lessons about real life and hard work. But Sofia has a couple of life lessons of her own to teach. Like how to fall in love.
I love these Lark Cove books! I seriously can’t pick a favorite, they’re all so good. Sophia and Dakota’s story was just as amazing as I expected it to be. I love that these books make me feel! Emotionally charged romances are my absolute favorites.
Sophia Kendrick is one of those characters I wasn’t sure if I was going to love… in the first book she rubbed me the wrong way a bit. But there was so much more to her than what meets the eye. When she comes to Montana to visit her brother, she doesn’t expect to be put to work at Thea’s bar, but she does it. She needs a purpose and until she figures that out, working is as good of thing as anything.
Dakota is just as concerned when Sophia comes to the bar. This girl that hasn’t worked a day in her life just waltzes in to the bar he runs… but he’s actually impressed by her work ethic and determination. The two start to bond and are insanely attracted to one another. It turns into a no-strings sex, but of course, feelings start to grow there.
She was a woman who had everything in the world at her fingertips and yet seemed so . . . miserable and lonely. She seemed so lost. I didn’t pity her. But I was intrigued. I ached to get closer and solve her riddle. I ached for her.
My favorite part of this book was watching Sophia grow and watching Dakota encourage her to do more. She really found herself and her passion and he gave her the encouragement and freedom to do that. Things were easy for her in a lot of ways, but her life wasn’t easy in some ways, too.
I wanted her to leave here tonight feeling like she’d made a difference. That I couldn’t have done it without her help. I wanted her to feel like she mattered, at least for one night.
Dakota didn’t have it easy, either. He had a lot of familial issues to deal with and it took him some time to figure things out, but he did. I loved the two of them together.
I will miss this group of characters so much. This book series is special. I love the emotions, the family/friendship bonds, and the sweet and swoony love stories. Tinsel was an amazing way to end this series!!
