Saving Tess by J. Lynn Bailey
Tera’s 4 Blush Review
Saving Tess is the second book in the Dillon Creek series, and I was ready for this one! Tess and Casey have quite the history that no one knows about. This secret should have driven Tess and Casey even loser together, but tragedy wedged them apart. Their secret was so well-kept, that as a reader, I was a little frustrated with how long it took to come to fruition. With that being said, I was mostly impatient because as I devoured this story, it really came full circle.
I loved how the choices of their pasts did not define what the future held for them. Tess had a lot of emotions to sort through and Casey finally came home to hold her hand through it all and finally finding peace with one another.

But when Casey receives a letter from a local attorney that would put him, and the only woman that’s ever owned his heart, in the same place for an extended period, he’s not so sure about his future with the PBR, about his heart, especially with their fragile past.
