Publisher Blog Tour and Review | Leave The Night On (Cottonbloom #4) by Laura Trentham | #NEW #Review #SmallTown #OppositesAttract @LauraTrentham

Title: Leave The Night On
Series: Cottonbloom #4
Author: Laura Trentham
Genre: Small Town Romance
Publisher: St Martin's Press
Release Date: 1 August 2017

Love, betrayal, and sweet revenge—life in Cottonbloom is about to get a whole lot hotter . . .

Sutton Mize is known for lavishing attention on the customers who flock to her boutique on the wealthy side of her Mississippi town. So when she finds a lace thong in her fiancĂ©’s classic cherry-red Camaro, she knows just who she sold it to: her own best friend. In an instant, Sutton’s whole world goes up in flames. . .

Wyatt Abbott has harbored a crush on Sutton since he was a young kid from the other side of the tracks. He witnessed Sutton’s shocking discovery in the Camaro at his family-owned garage—and it made him angry. What kind of man could take lovely, gorgeous Sutton for granted? But then Sutton comes up with an idea: Why not give her betrothed a taste of his own medicine and pretend that she’s got a lover of her own? Wyatt is more than happy to play the hot-and-heavy boyfriend. But what begins as a fictional affair soon develops into something more real, and more passionate, than either Sutton or Wyatt could have imagined. Could it be that true love has been waiting under the hood all along?


This is the fourth book in the Cottonbloom series, but each can be read as a standalone. This is a small town romance with an opposites attracts theme. These next books in the series are about the Abbott Brothers, first up is Wyatt.

Wyatt works in his family garage business and since their father’s death, it is moving more in to the restoration side of the business. When he sees his school boy crush of two decades back riding into the forecourt, little does he realise what a big revelation he is going to be part of which in part paves the way to bring him more in proximity to the high class beauty, Sutton.

Sutton is shocked to discover her fiancĂ©’s indiscretions behind her back when Wyatt makes a discovery under the passenger seat of the car she was going to have restored for him. An even bigger shock is who he has been seeing. Taking support from the manly shoulders of Wyatt, she seeks out a plan to help her save face. But can a fake relationship turn into something more?

I love going back to Cottonbloom so I was happy to see we got more books in the series and check out the sexy Abbott brothers.

The opposites attract was another winner for me with Sutton being the sweet ‘high society daughter of a judge’ to Wyatt’s ‘son of a blue collar worker’ with oil under the nails of his hard working manly hands. 

Although I did enjoy the interaction between the pairing with a simmer of sexual tension, it was a little one sided to Wyatt who seemed to be making all the effort when in the end it was Sutton who had come up with the plan in the first place.

Overall though another enjoyable escape to Cottonbloom. I am looking forward to getting to know more of the brothers and their stories. Four Stars.

Meet The author
An award-winning author, Laura Trentham was born and raised in a small town in Tennessee. Although, she loved English and reading in high school, she was convinced an English degree equated to starvation. She chose the next most logical major—Chemical Engineering—and worked in a hard hat and steel toed boots for several years.

She writes sexy, small town contemporaries and smoking hot Regency historicals. The first two books of her Falcon Football series were named Top Picks by RT Book Reviews magazine. Then He Kissed Me, a Cottonbloom novel, was named as one of Amazon’s best romances of 2016. When not lost in a cozy Southern town or Regency England, she's shuttling kids to soccer, helping with homework, and avoiding the Mt. Everest-sized pile of laundry that is almost as big as the to-be-read pile of books on her nightstand.
