When Bountiful hit my Kindle, I pretty much dropped everything to read it. I was blown away by this amazing story and these characters. I loved every second!

Bountiful (Truth North #4) by Sarina Bowen



synopsis_thumb2

No last names. No life stories. Those were the rules.


Once upon a time a cocky, copper-haired tourist sauntered into Zara’s bar. And even though she knew better, Zara indulged in a cure for the small-town blues. It was supposed to be an uncomplicated fling—a few sizzling weeks before he went back to his life, and she moved on.


Until an accidental pregnancy changed her life.


Two years later, she’s made peace with the notion that Dave No-Last-Name will never be found. Until one summer day when he walks into her coffee shop, leveling her with the same hot smile that always renders her defenseless.


Dave Beringer has never forgotten the intense month he spent with prickly Zara. Their nights together were the first true intimacy he’d ever experienced. But the discovery of his child is the shock of a lifetime, and his ugly past puts relationships and family out of reach.


Or does it? Vermont’s countryside has a way of nurturing even tortured souls. The fields and the orchards—and hard won love—are Bountiful.

5 out of 5 stars


This was absolutely FANTASTIC! Once I picked it up, I could not put it down. I loved watching these amazing characters come together. I love when a story really makes me feel and this book just gave me so much and I felt so full. The perfect mix of emotion, love, and heat!


I can't begin to tell you how excited I was to read this, I’ve been looking forward to Zara’s story since the first book, Bittersweet. The beginning was awesome - a seriously incredible way to kick of a story. Explosive is a good word. Everything around me faded away as I got to know Zara and Dave and it was absolutely perfect. These two had an unconventional start and I loved their off the charts chemistry and how they really got under each other's skin. Zara was so tough and in charge but so guarded. I was pretty much loving Dave from the start with his commanding attitude and strong presence. He was such a good guy and I really loved his walls coming down bit by bit, it had me so full of emotion watching him truly open up. Zara was amazing as well. I loved how she softened as a mom, how she'd grown and changed but still guarded her heart. How everything unfolded was exciting and fun but sweet and sexy, filled with moments of tension and and so much feeling. 


The writing was spot on. I absolutely loved how the details were presented. It had a wonderful flow. I was so pulled in and filled with anticipation as I learned Dave and Zara’s histories and watched them fall in love. It had excellent development. I was thrilled when the timeline started so we really got to see Zara from the beginning. I loved all the secondary characters and getting updates from other characters in previous stories in this series. I also adored the connection to the hockey series, The Brooklyn Bruisers, and seeing Dave's teammates. That was was a fun addition. I liked the bit of drama that Zara's family brought to the table as well, it added just the right amount of tension. I loved Dave's sister and his relationship with her. I adored the baby… seriously, those daddy-child moments were the most precious things ever.


Bountiful was exciting and entertaining with some seriously awesome heat mixed in. It was just a wonderful story about these slightly broken people healing and coming together and falling in love and embracing the future and letting go of the past. It was AMAZING and hands down my favorite in the series so far! I loved this and the ending, man, it was exactly what I wanted. Absolutely perfect!
