Leave the Night On is the fourth book in the Cottonbloom series by Laura Trentham. I didn’t realize this was even a series when I picked it up to read but thankfully as with most romance/contemporary series the book reads find as a standalone novel as each in the series feature a new couple.
While I’m not a huge fan of jumping into a new relationship right after ending a serious one this book did a good job at making that not seem quite as bad to me. Sutton obviously was in her previous relationship more because it was what was expected of her than actually being in love. With starting something up with Wyatt it’s also done as the pretense of fake which I actually kind of like stories like this as it gives the characters time to develop feelings while being together.
Overall, in the end with the story and characters and all that was involved I decided to give this one 3.5 stars and would look into reading more by this author in the future.
I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley.
