Wild Love–Forever Adirondacks Series by Lauren Accardo
I’ve now read all three of the Forever Adirondacks books, and overall, I love them. Lauren Accardo does a wonderful job with the depths of her characterizations, and the descriptions of small town Pine Valley. Even though I’m not a football fan, I really like how that thread ran through the books as well.
The other books in this series are all really solid. The second made me so hungry to make pie, it reminded me of the fantastic movie Waitress.
I would rate this about 4 Austen, or 4 Stars. I take a star off as it was a cozy, enjoyable read, but not one that blew my socks off. I would still very highly recommend this series and give it to friends looking for a cozy small town romance.
Trigger Warnings/Content Warnings

How Steamy Is It?
Pretty steamy. Not Sierra Simone, more Tessa Dare level heat.
