Problems in Paradise

Eden Durant hasn't always been Eden Durant. She's made a fresh start in Shelbyville, Texas, far from her mother's notoriety. Running the Paradise Garden Café is as much excitement as Eden wants—or it was, until she meets Beck Childress. Although he's the one man who could expose her past, she's willing to open up enough to see if he might be her future.
Chief Deputy Childress is determined to get to know the real Eden, when he isn't busy cleaning up after the sheriff and running in the election to replace him. When several men fall sick after eating in Eden's café, he investigates even as her mysterious past raises both his suspicions and his protective instincts.
As their relationship heats up, so do the pressures of Beck's campaign. When Eden's secrets are revealed, jeopardizing his dream of becoming sheriff, he'll need to choose: serve and protect the town he loves or the woman who makes it home.

Book Three of Texas Nights series

I've loved the first 2 books in this series and was so excited to get a review copy from the publisher through NetGalley. Kelsey Browning writes funny and sexy contemporary romances and I love her books.
I've wanted Eden's story pretty much since we first met her. I'm not sure I would have seen her with Beck initially, but the more time they spent together, the more I loved them as a couple. I loved that Beck didn't really push Eden too much about her past and was willing to wait for her to tell him the truth. The chemistry between Beck and Eden grew stronger the longer they spent time together. Beck totally got Eden and watching them fall for one another was funny, hot, and sexy.
I've loved the friendship between Eden, Roxanne and Allie. The relationship between the girlfriends is every bit as important as the relationship between Eden and Beck. Eden has kept a part of herself secret from her friends since she moved to town. I loved that like all best friends, Allie and Roxanne were totally there for Eden when the truth about her past came out.
Beck was also investigating how people were getting sick from Eden's food in this book. I loved that he went above and beyond not only for Eden but also for the people of Shelbyville to make sure everyone was safe. I figured out who was behind everything pretty early on, and really wanted to kick this person in the head. 
Problems in Paradise was another winner in the Texas Nights series. I can't wait to see what happens next with this series.
