Book Review: 'Still In Love With You' by Lexie Davis

Still in Love with You is like a video of sizzling love scenes with a frame and background of small town and ranch living. It entertains!
Short but very well written, this story slips the reader into a vicarious experience filled with humor, sadness, emotions both immature and mature, nosy but caring town folks, and a love that refuses to give up.
Aubree Manning and Parker Montgomery, in love since childhood, have been apart ten years. Eight of those years Parker was fighting in Afghanistan. Now he is sheriff of Prospect, Texas and fights to control his PTSD. Aubree has been in Dallas. Now a rich financial counselor, she returns to Prospect for a week.
Aubree, always a troublemaker, but a loved troublemaker, dabbles in danger as that undying love goads her into doing most unusual things to find her way back to Parker and to entice him back to her.
The love scenes are hot and sweet. The high school memories captivate. The reconnection as “forever friends” is so sincere and caring, the reader feels Parker’s gradual release of anger, the seeping in of peace, and that “I’m all alone” feeling, so long endured, slithers away.
Lexi Davis does a super job of taking the reader into the hearts and minds of the characters. The humor she slips in is delightful. What is revealed about the characters enthralls.
The fictional ranch life and some of the small town life slips almost too far from reality at times and detract a little, but not enough for me to even dream of stopping. I had to be sure that “forever love” worked its magic so Aubree and Parker got their happy-ever-after.
