Blog Tour: Review of Fleeting by Carrie Aarons

Author: Carrie Aarons
Publisher: Self
Date of publication: March 2019

Presley McDaniel lives her life from moment to moment.
Making permanent decisions means obligation, and that would force her to stop being the family disappointment. Waitress, fitness instructor, dog walker … you name the hourly job and she’s probably held the position.
But when her grandmother can no longer run her book shop in Fawn Hill, a town so small it barely has its own zip code, Presley steps up to help.

Keaton Nash has never questioned his steady path.
His brothers may tease him about settling into his father’s passed-down role of small town veterinarian, but Keaton has never minded his rural roots. And after tragedy struck two years ago, he has a duty as the eldest Nash man to look after his family.
What he doesn’t need is the sexy, flighty stranger who shows up in town and gets his broken heart beating again. Presley McDaniel is a distraction, a red-headed temptation that is the definition of a bad idea.

Fleeting is the first book in the Nash Brothers series.  This is Keaton and Presley's story.  Presley has moved to the small town of Fawn Hill to help her ailing grandmother manage her bookshop.  Keaton is the town vet who always walks the straight line and often takes on everyone else's burdens.  One of the elements that I find so appealing in romance novels is when there are two characters,  stuck because of things in their past, find the way to begin a new life path with the other person.

Keaton and Presley are opposites in every way.  However, that only makes them fit more perfectly together.  Presley helps Keaton step out of his comfort zone and be more spontaneous.  Keaton helps Presley realize that she is worth something and  can finally put down roots. I enjoyed these two together.  I loved their slow romance build up.   I loved that they took a lot of time to get to know each other before heading to the bedroom.  They had great banter.  Their first scene was hilarious!

This is a good and well written start to this series.  I am intrigued by Keaton's three younger brothers, especially Bowen.  I look forward to reading his and Lily's story!


Author of romance novels such as Red Card and Privileged, Carrie Aarons writes books that are just as swoon-worthy as they are sarcastic. A former journalist, she prefers the stories she dreams up, and the yoga pant dress code, much better.

When she isn't writing, Carrie is busy binging reality TV, having a love/hate relationship with cardio, and trying not to burn dinner. She lives in the suburbs of New Jersey with her husband, daughter and dog.
