5/5 Review: Make Me Stay by Jaci Burton


 
Having left his hometown of Hope years ago, only one thing could persuade architect Reid McCormack to come home for a lengthy stay—the challenge of renovating a historic building. But once the job is finished, he’ll be headed back to Boston, no matter how much he’s drawn to beautiful florist Samantha Reasor.

Samantha watches over her elderly grandmother and pours a piece of herself into every floral creation she designs. Her crush on Reid has been blooming for a while now, but she’s reluctant to act on it. A temporary fling isn’t what she’s looking for, even if Reid is smoking hot and super sexy. She wants a real, permanent, forever kind of love.

Two people with different goals couldn’t possibly work, and yet as their attraction grows into something deeper, maybe falling in love is the one thing Samantha and Reid can build a future on.
 
**********
 
Reid McCormack is a big city architect with a successful business and plenty of room to grow, however he's stepped away temporarily, to renovate a historical building in his hometown of Hope Oklahoma. He has no plans of staying past the renovation, no matter how hard his friends and family beg.

Samantha Reasor is the owner of the town floral shop, and it just so happens to be her that informed Reid that the building was going to be demolished, together they looked it over several months back and it was instant love for Reid (for the building of course!) Now Sam gets to enjoy watching Red daily out her window and she sure does love the view.

Can Sam be the one to push Reid to make him stay?

So being from a small town, I really enjoy reading about small town romances, I could literally picture this town as the one I grew up in and it made it that much better! Jaci was very clear on how she wanted her fictional town and it's residents to be, and I could see them clear as day! 

I loved the family dynamic between each character, even if they weren't blood, they were family. And of course, when Ried has a dog attach itself to him it was all the better,  I was jealous and want one just like him! 
 
The story was well written and made me fall in love with the main characters myself. Definitely a great light and fun read!
