Watching Fireflies (Love Bug #1) by Jaycee Ford

WatchingFirefliesJordan Hawthorne thought she had it all until a surprise for her fiancé turns into losing everything that she ever wanted. She flees her home in Charlotte, North Carolina to take a new job in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains and make a new start where her ex-fiancé can’t find her. Jordan is just beginning to adjust to her new life in the middle of nowhere when a small town cowboy walks in and disrupts it all.

Tom McCloud never had time for a serious commitment, always too busy with running his grandparents’ farm. Everything changes when he stumbles upon a broken-hearted city girl and a steamy buzz ignites between them. But what happens when the city girl can’t stay hidden in the country for long?

Watching Fireflies was a quick read that was kinda sweet, kinda corny and kinda fun with a not so nice stalker thrown into the mix.

I liked the story and the characters were good too, but both the main characters did some things during the course of the story that just made me shake my head. I’m not going to tell you what they did, just because I don’t believe in giving anything away. And maybe hind sight is 20/20, but some of the things that these two took for granted and didn’t think about made some of the scenarios a little over the top.

Other than that, the story was sweet, the romance was hot and steamy and the characters (when they weren’t doing really, really stupid things) were pretty likable. Since Watching Fireflies is the first book in the Love Bug series, I’m willing to give the next books the benefit of the doubt and continue reading. Dragonfly Awakening is the next book in the series and even though the time frame probably coincides with the story line in Watching Fireflies, it should prove to be an interesting read.
