From the Start by the LOVELY Melissa Tagg

From the back cover:

Kate Walker used to believe in true love and happily ever after. While her own love life may have left her brokenhearted, it hasn't kept her from churning out made-for-TV romance movie screenplays...until a major career slump and a longing to do something meaningful send her running back to her hometown of Maple Valley. 

Permanently sidelined by an injury, former NFL quarterback Colton Greene is temporarily hiding out in a friend's hometown to avoid the media and the reminders of all he's lost. Maple Valley seems like the perfect place to learn how to adjust to normal life. The only trouble is he's never really done normal before.

While Kate plays things safe and Colton is all about big risks and grand gestures, they both get what it's like to desperately need direction in life. An unexpected project gives them both a chance to jumpstart their new lives, but old wounds and new dreams are hard to ignore. Starting over wasn't part of the plan, but could it be the best thing that's ever happened to them?

First off I have to say that I ADORE Melissa Tagg's writing style because I am not much of a reader by nature but this got me to read past the first three chapters. That is a huge feat in my mind! Kudos to Melissa! 

I absolutely adore the characters of Kate Walker and Colton Greene. They are so down to earth and realistic. Kate in a way reminds me of me a little bit in the route of even if our love life sucks, we are able to write a fairytale romance. :) Maple Valley sounds completely amazing but then again I love small towns. 

Melissa Tagg's writing has gotten better and she will WRITE her way into your heart. I highly recommend this book and all of Melissa's books. She is so sweet and down to earth.
