Cody’s childhood put a chip on his shoulder the size of Texas. Bouncing around the foster care system, he was always the one to leave before anyone left him first.

He’s back now, and determined to earn her forgiveness…and maybe win back her love while he’s at it
REVIEW: SUGAR SPRINGS is a contemporary romance novel written by Kim Law with all the usual push and pull of bad-boy does the town sweetheart wrong.
Kim Law takes us on a journey of heartbreak and sorrow at the hands of one man-namely Cody Dalton. Cody has been running all of his life-from foster home to foster home, then from the only woman he ever loved. When the reality of his life came crashing down around him, Cody made a major error in judgment that affected the rest of his life-as well as Lee Ann’s. But in all fairness, Cody was oblivious to the knowledge and information that he had fathered twin girls with a reckless one-night stand. Cody never ran from his responsibilities-he just never knew they existed. Cody’s betrayal would shape Lee Ann’s world for the rest of her life.
Lee Ann London never regretted the life she now led. Raising her nieces as her own, motherhood was difficult but she had the support of her mother and the entire small town of Sugar Springs. But Cody’s reappearance after nearly thirteen years made her question her true feelings about the man who broke her heart. The attraction was still there but memories of past indiscretions continued to replay with every heart-tugging encounter. There is sexual tension as well as the inevitable acknowledgement of a love that was never forgotten, but with it comes a whole new set of rules meant to protect and guard one’s heart.
In true contemporary romance style, Lee Ann will struggle with her feelings for the man she believes abandoned his children and left for places unknown. When the truth is finally revealed, Lee Ann’s heart remains damaged when Cody is reluctant to stay in one place for too long. Cody would have to make a decision-and someone would have to compromise-but in the end-isn’t that what all relationships are about.
Sugar Springs has an assortment of secondary characters that add an interesting flavor to the story line-especially the long line of town gossips who seem to be up in everybody’s business. And life in a small town is further complicated when people’s eyes do not always see what they are looking at. There is a build up for another storyline and there is a happily ever after-for now. If you like small-town romances where a broken heart finally mends, Sugar Springs is the read for you.
