No last names. No life stories. Those were the rules.
Once upon a time a cocky, copper-haired tourist sauntered into Zara’s bar. And even though she knew better, Zara indulged in a cure for the small-town blues. It was supposed to be an uncomplicated fling—a few sizzling weeks before he went back to his life, and she moved on.
Until an accidental pregnancy changed her life.
Two years later, she’s made peace with the notion that Dave No-Last-Name will never be found. Until one summer day when he walks into her coffee shop, leveling her with the same hot smile that always renders her defenseless.
Dave Beringer has never forgotten the intense month he spent with prickly Zara. Their nights together were the first true intimacy he’d ever experienced. But the discovery of his child is the shock of a lifetime, and his ugly past puts relationships and family out of reach.
Or does it? Vermont’s countryside has a way of nurturing even tortured souls. The fields and the orchards—and hard won love—are Bountiful.

“But maybe it will all work out. And meanwhile, you can admire his pretty face. ”
Now it was my turn to snort. Dave wasn’t pretty. Rugged was a better description.
Besides Elle Kennedy, my other favorite New Adult author is Sarina Bowen. And so I was again very happy to read this book. I thoroughly enjoyed her great writing style again. As always, she writes from the first persons perspective and from both characters.
Nope, nope, and nope. Nicole’s face had turned bright red, and I didn’t know how one small person could make so many tears.
There was nothing wrong with my child’s lungs, that was for sure.
What do I think of Bountiful
I couldn’t wait for Zara’s story. In Griff’s story I could never really get a grip on her and even now Zara turns out to be very alone. But because it is now written from her she is easier to understand.
I really loved Dave. A typical ice hockey player who doesn’t really know what to do with a child. But he wants so badly. Even if he does something weird. It is super touching and it melts both my and Zara’s heart.
He took my mouth in another hard kiss.
Artlessly, I hooked a leg around his hip. He tugged on the fabric of my dress, lifting it further.
Very nice story. Typically Sarina: D0
