A Girl Like You by Samantha Chase
(Magnolia Sound, #2)
Sam Westbrook has always been the family hell-raiser, but as an adult he’s enjoyed not being under the constant watchful eye of his family. That was until his great-grandfather passed away. Forced to move to the small coastal town of Magnolia Sound, Sam can’t escape the reputation that has followed him since his teenage years. But he’ll have to do it to get his inheritance.
Shelby Abbott was always the good girl – it’s what happens when you’re the pastor’s daughter in a small town. Now, she’s ready to leave that image behind. For years she’s heard about wild Sam Westbrook, but she never thought she would be the one to catch his eye. And being the center of Sam’s attention isn’t something Shelby ever prepared for.
Sam’s time in Magnolia Sound has an expiration date and Shelby’s not sure she’s the kind of girl who can be just another one of his flings. But Sam’s ready to make some changes. And a girl like her is just who he needs.
Every summer Sam Westbrook would visit his great-grandfather and the town of Magnolia Sound with his twin sister and mother. Since the death of his great-grandfather and being forced to move to the town, Sam believes that the town remembers and judges him as the immature and a hell-raiser that he was, not the adult he has become. He will just have to learn how to deal with it and prove the doubters wrong in order to get his inheritance.
Shelby Abbott has always been the “good girl”, staying in her comfort zone, and pleasing her parents. After all, she’s the pastor’s daughter and after all these years, she is ready to shed that image. She’s heard the wild stories about Sam so imagine her surprise when Sam, the Sam Westbrook, wants to spend time with her. She was not prepared for that. However, Sam has changed. He is not the wild, carefree man she expected; he is caring, protective, and hard working. Sam has always said that he would only be in Magnolia Sound as long as he needed to be. As much as Shelby wants to change, she not ready to have just a fling with Sam.
Poor Sam. He couldn’t get out of his own head that he deserved a second chance from the people of the town. Especially since only he was treated that way, not those who were with him at the time. Sam worked hard to help clean up the town and return it to its gloried, pre-hurricane status. It was fate that Shelby was the perfect girl for him.
I admired how strong Shelby became and how she stood up to her parents and the town on their judgmental ways to remind them that Sam was a new person, a changed person, and worthy of a second chance. Shelby was definitely the girl Sam needed in order to become a better person, one he was proud to be.
Ms. Chase wrote a wonderful and emotional story that is not to be missed. She provided a tale rich with sexual chemistry, amusing banter, and endearing characters giving Sam and Shelby the love and strength they needed. I highly recommend A Girl Like You to other readers and I can’t wait to read more about this family from Magnolia Sound and see what else is in store for us readers.
