Workaholic Manhattanite PLOT Summer travels to Blue Moon Bend, NY to do a weeklong interview and write a piece on Pierce Acres, a family owned organic farm run by the yummy, bearded Carter Pierce Summer quickly falls in love with the farm, the town full of well meaning hippy weirdos, Carter and his family but isn t sure if she can give up her dreams and fast paced life in the city REVIEW Low angst, light, super sweet, sexy and humorous with lots of likable characters Loved Carter s relationship with his brothers and all the unique residents of Blue Moon Bend Would have liked an epilogue with a glimpse into their future and a definitive HEA, but looking forward to reading about Carter s brothers and the town of Blue Moon Bend in future books, as well as catching up with Carter Summer EDITING very good minimal errors found POV dual third person SETTING a kooky little hippy town in upstate New York STEAMINESS 3 5 a few explicit sexy scenes OW OM ISSUES None No OW OM or pasts mentioned at all H hasn t had sex in quite awhile, neither has h ENDING A littleHFN than HEA No Epilogue No cliffhanger Why are they looking at us and whispering Is it because we re looking at them and whispering No They re plotting, Carter said, grabbing her foot and easing it into a boot He shot another glance at the trio Summer grabbed him by the chin and turned his head to her His beard tickled her palms Is this something you can explain to me without glaring at them Carter reached for her other leg and Summer tried to ignore the delicious tingle that shot up from her toes at his touch Sorry, he muttered I ve just never been in their sights before I heard rumors, but I never thought it would happen to me Carter, you re starting to scare me Don t look at them he barked He stuffed her foot into the other boot Are they casting some kind of spell on you He shook his head Worse They re matchmaking I feel like Lucy Score was playing with a story filters app and forgot to remove clich before hitting publish on this one Or maybe she felt pressure to make it longer than it ended up so she dumped extra things in to draw it out I dunno This ended up being a mess and I kind of hated myself for feeling the need to skim to the end even after the last vestige of my enjoyment died I lasted a long time on just how yummy Carter is He s my favorite type of hero the strong and capable guy who lo I feel like Lucy Score was playing with a story filters app and forgot to remove clich before hitting publish on this one Or maybe she felt pressure to make it longer than it ended up so she dumped extra things in to draw it out I dunno This ended up being a mess and I kind of hated myself for feeling the need to skim to the end even after the last vestige of my enjoyment died I lasted a long time on just how yummy Carter is He s my favorite type of hero the strong and capable guy who loves deeply, is fundamentally kind, and does his best to help and support those around him Seriously, adding wounded war hero is just a particularly decadent icing on the top of that sinfully rich cake.And for a while, I rather liked Summer, too I loved that she could tease back and that she was willing to let herself be charmed by him and his family She rolled with the weird and showed up with her own twists and that was fun in the first third or so of the story Which is when I started worrying because it was pretty clear that they were attached, and probably in love, that early on and I wondered what Score was going to do to extend this story out.And I was completely right to be worried Because what she did was add a bunch of stupid things to clutter up what should have been a really straightforward story I had forgotten the hints of a secret that came in early, but I really shouldn t have Because as it went on, it turns out that Summer not only indulges a secret keeping idiocy, but then it leads to a completely stupid dark moment with my very least favorite tacked on nonsense of unilateral action for their own good So Summer became a stupid clich and that s when my brain started picking apart all the other dumb things that don t actually work Like the super hippie, free spirited community that is completely free of freeloaders, bad feelings, jealousy, or vindictiveness all while being self sustaining, and full of whacky businesses that magically thrive because it s a super hippie, free spirited community and an author is there to say so Or that Carter could ramp up the family farm operation in just a few years with no training or preparation beyond being in the army Or that he just stopped eating meat years ago for sentimental reasons with no mention of adjustments or accommodations to keep his fine, athletic and richly muscled form yes, it is possible to do this, but it takes care and planning and the kind of intentionality that seeps into the rest of your lifestyle and should have been visible to an outside observer like Summer supposedly is.And can I say how deeply stupid it is to make the title No More Secrets when you have Summer keeping her stupid secret all the way to the climax And how lame it is that she didn t so much trust Carter with her most painful secret as that she blasted it online for all to see because it stopped mattering to her suddenly Anyway, this held onto a second star on the strength of Carter being so very much my jam and because I skimmed rather than subjecting myself to reading the last quarter or so just to find what the stupid secret actually was I m sad it ended so badly I really liked the start all the way up until I got antsy that things were going too well Sigh I should have listened to my instincts and stopped to make up my own story from thereA note about Steamy There are, like, sixty or seventy explicit sex scenes in this story making it to the high end of my steam tolerance Well, okay The high end of my steam tolerance is true I exaggerated the actual count by a factor of 10 It just felt like so muchbecause I wasn t really buying it I mean, they were cute and I wanted them to be together and all But I didn t need to see every new technique they chose to try out Sign me up for the rest of the Blue Moon seriesI m quickly becoming a Lucy Score fan Her quirky, humourous, entertaining and lovable characters come to life for me and I am always satisfied with how the story

only problem isI have bought two new books and one of my pre orders have hit my Kindle this week I think I ll buy 2 and see which book my download finger hits first ISHOULDread what I ve boughtbut the struggle is real.In No More Secrets we meet Carter and Summer when the magazine Summer works for decides to do an article on Carter s organic farm Within minutes of them meeting each other, it was obvious there was attraction and sparks flying Summer is staying at the farm for a week but they are both hesitant to act on their attraction It s not like this city girl would leave her glamorous life to live on a farm, or, the farmer would ever leave his peaceful existence But, the heart wants what the heart wants.I really, really enjoyed reading No More Secrets At first, I admit to falling under Carter s spell and thinking Summer might not be good enough for him Summer s job is very demanding and she has made her career her life With time on the farm, she realises that all work and no play is not making Summer a happy camper I absolutely LOVED that Carter knew Summer was scared and was willing to wait and not push her too far too fast In the end, it would take a bit of compromise, a lot of love and nosecrets to get to their happy ever after.The people of Blue Moon were lovable and quirky and made me want to visit this small town Carter s brothers Beckett and Jackson were great men and I can t wait to get to their stories Pheobe, Carter s mother was very cool and I loved her favourite son of the moment comments, it reminded me a little of the tongue in cheek conversations I have with my own sons No More Secrets does deal with some heavier subjects but I think they were handled beautifully Carter is a returned soldier suffering from PTSD and Summer has had some health issues Nothing too heavy or dodgy and when these subjects were discussed, I was never too uncomfortable No More Secrets was sexy, funny and very entertaining and I was left completely satisfied at the end I will definitely be readingfrom this author and the Blue Moon series is at the top of the list First sentence Summer Lentz hefted her suitcase and laptop into the trunk of her snappy little

binge read that, I m going back to read some of her back list Being a lover of small town romance, of course I picked the Blue Moon series and if book one is indicative of what s to come in this series, I picked wisely No More Secrets pits a reclusive farmer who suffers from PTSD from his time in the army and an outgoing, perky journalist tasked with doing a story on the organic farm and the family who runs it I enjoyed this slow burn romance quite a bit, but it was the town of Blue Moon Bend, the Pierce family, and the quirky residents of Blue Moon that drew me in and made me want.Carter Pierce wants nothingthan to live his quiet life, work the family farm, and spend time with his family He ll do anything to keep the farm running including subjecting himself to an interview he really doesn t want to do.Summer Lentz doesn t mind being sent to upstate New York for a story it s only a week and she knows she ll return to the city and continue to work towards her goal of eventually opening her own online magazine.I loved the sizzle between Carter and Summer from the start even though they did their best to try and deny it and the fact this was a slow burn romance As Summer was indoctrinated into the Blue Moon ways, readers also began to see just how unique the town can be I appreciated that Summer dove into the job of being a farmer and she didn t complain She wanted the experience and Carter was determined not to take it easy on her and she proved she was up for the job.As they grow closer and start a physical relationship, Carter lets go of some of his secrets, but as Summer sees the life Carter wants she knows she can t be part of it.While at times this book dragged, there were moments of sweetness, hilarity, and sadness, but through it all the Pierce family welcomed Summer into their lives making it harder for her to stay away.No More Secrets was an enjoyable romance, but it was the glimpse of possible pairings to come that really excited me.Review copy
