Lucy Loves Him Not by Rebecca Jo Jackson: Book Review

 *Book received for consideration. All thoughts are my own.

Lucy Rhodes finished the school year as a kindergarten teacher and she’s excited to get started on her decade-long summer tradition of running the Sweet River Summer Festival. A tradition started by her grandmother, but for the past few years Lucy has carried it on herself in honor of that beloved memory.
But, this summer, the new city manager Adam, throws a major wrench in Lucy's tradition and seems set on ruining her perfectly set plans.
After a meet-disaster, and the drawing up of an extensive contract, Adam and Lucy decide to work together on the festival. Even if it might drive her crazy.
While working together they realize the Texas summer isn't the only thing heating up. Adam's looking for a place, or a person, to call 
home. And Lucy's big heart has room to spare.

Rebecca Jo Jackson writes closed door romcoms with all the banter and chemistry to make you swoon.

She grew up in a small town in Texas (hi, Sweet River inspo), but now calls California home. She lives with her husband, two adorable daughters and their German shepherd mix, Humphrey.

Lucy Loves Him Not is the second book in the Sweet River series. I personally had not read the previous book and found I was able to enjoy this just fine as a standalone. 

Right from the start, I was drawn into this sweet story. It truly had all the makings of a Hallmark movie, in the best way possible. When we meet Lucy, she is gearing up to work on the summer festival that she had taken over after her grandma passed. Until she learns that the city has brought in a new planner and it seems he intends to take it over from her. Even more surprising, when she goes to confront him, she discovers he's the man she'd matched with on a local dating app. Needless to say, they didn't get off on the right foot after that. Still, they put their differences aside to make the festival the best possible.  I really enjoyed the banter between them, and the undeniable chemistry as well. It was such a sweet romance and one that I absolutely couldn't get enough of. 

Beyond the romance, I also really loved both the small-town vibes and the great family dynamic with Lucy's family. Their relationship was so fun--- meddling, yes... but the love there was obvious and made the story all that much better... especially when we see how easily Adam fits in.

Lucy Loves Him Not is a closed-door romance with kisses only and no language.
