☆☆☆☆4 Sweet Country Stars ☆☆☆☆
Home is where the heart is the heart is. And that can't be more true for Haley as she spends her summer back home taking care of her grandparent's farm while they are on vacation. While in town, she runs into Bentley, a former high school bully, who made Haley's high school life miserable. Bentley is instantly attracted to Haley and immediately apologize for his stupidity back in high school. So can Bentley win the heart of Haley and show her that he is a changed man? Will Haley leave her city life for life on the farm?
Falling For Bentley by Shawnte Borris is an easy and quick read. It was fun, light, and sweet. Though this book is fast paced, I wished the author took time with the development of Bentley and Haley. I enjoyed their friendship but I felt the author rushed these two in a BAM serious status. But overall, I really liked the book and can't wait to read what's in store for these two in Catching Haley.
**Note: There is Cliffhanger ending***

A short simple, but addicting story about two people falling in love. This book hooked me from the beginning, that I had a hard time stopping to go to bed to sleep.
I really enjoyed the sparks and the flirting between Haley and Bentley. I love how easily it was for them to fall into each others arms.
Yes, this book ends with a cliffhanger, which I usually hate, but not this time, because I got lucky enough to have both copies on hand and went straight into reading the 2nd book Catching Haley.

This story is so sweet and innocent. Was a little too tamed compared to the other books I have read, but I loved it all the same. Shawnte will pull you in right from the beginning of Bentley and Haley's journey, which is a part one in the series. She will make you fall in love like it was your first time falling. Will make you want to slap and pull Bentley's hair and love him at the same time.
Haley is feisty and I loved her spunk. She may have been bullied and made fun of in high school, but she fought it even though it hurt her really bad from all the bullying. And get this, it was Bentley's doing. He was the one who started calling her THUNDER THIGHS at school. It made her feel like she wasn't worth anyone's love and time. She struggled with this issue for quite sometime, it was just a huge impact in her life that it made her so miserable. And when she finally started to think that she's got everything figured out, that she is so over the high school crap that Bentley started, he goes and run into her. She tried to ignore him, but he was very persistent. He just would not quit bothering her until she gave in. Well, how long can she deny this gnawing feeling she has since everywhere she looked, he's there.
Bentley was a high school football coach. And since it's a small town, not everyone were able to afford uniforms. This is where it all changes for Bentley and Haley, her Grandpa makes a proposition, he wanted the football team to work at the farm while he was on vacation in exchanged for the team's uniforms. Of course, Bentley could not refuse the deal. He started working with his team at Haley's grandparents ranch. Each time he sees her, he's just so stunned by her beauty and just could not stop staring, always looking dumbfounded every time she is around. He will not stop at anything to prove to Haley that he is so very sorry for putting her in such a bad situation in high school that it almost ruined her. Will she ever forgive him for his cruelty to her in the past or will she just make him chase her and make him suffer like she did?
These two young couples you will automatically fall in love with. It was such an innocent love story that it made me feel like I was in their shoes falling in love for the first time. Second chance encounter, will they make it right this time or will they both end up hurting even worst than the first time? I can't wait to read the part two of the series. Awesome job, Ms. Borris. I LOVED IT!!!
