When the Stars Come Out (Cottonbloom #5)


Willa Brown never planned to stay in Cottonbloom. She was on the way to somewhere else when she landed there and found work at the Abbot brothers’ garage. . .and a sense of comfort and safety that she had never known. The same holds true for Jackson Abbott himself. With one glance in her direction, he can make Willa’s heart melt. But what begins as an unrequited crush turns into something far more powerful than Willa could have ever imagined. . .

Jackson’s most meaningful relationship has always been with his car—and he’s not afraid to admit it. Still, he can’t help but become emotionally entangled with his new star mechanic Willa, who is definitely hiding some dark secrets of her own beneath the hood. Jackson desperately wants Willa to trust him, and to seek protection in his arms. But even as the two slowly surrender to their shared attraction, the danger lurking in Willa’s past remains a stubborn obstacle. Can she open up enough to give them both a chance at having real and lasting love?


You are back in Cottonbloom and with the story of Jackson the twin to Wyatt from the last book and Willa Brown. Willa is the only female mechanic in the garage and was hired by the boys’ father years ago. She has mad skills but really that is all anyone really knows about her and that is the way she likes it. She is attracted to Jackson but she does not want to start anything for various reasons. These reasons are shown to you the reader throughout the story slowly, and as much as I thought I would not like it. I actually did. You find out the Willa is a very complexed woman and so much, much more. You find out where and how she got her skills from and how she ended up there in Cottonbloom. You are taken into her being in a way that takes you back in her life to where her fear and yet protecting herself and more importantly her family made her end up where she is today, and now fighting the urge to run from Cottonbloom, and start a knew in a new place. As much as I want to give Jackson credit for helping her and he does. I really think it begins with a stray dog that shows up at her trailer and allows her to pet him. That simple act of touch begins to open her up to Jackson when he shows up at her trailer unannounced. By this stray dog allowing her to touch and feed it, allowed her to be open to the possibility of human touch and kindness when Jackson just at first wanted to talk. This was and is a different type of love story and it really fit the two characters. A very good book and had some of the characters from the other books in it as well. Very much worth the read. I received this book from Netgalley.com I gave it 5 stars. Follow us at www.1rad-readerreviews.com
