I really enjoyed this heartwarming story
It's a must read for all Kelly's fans and anyone Else I can convert !!!!
And cannot wait for the next book in the series CADE !!!!!
Colton is book #1 in the Hadley Series, this is the first book I have read by this author and I was lucky enough to be gifted a copy of the book to read for Gemma Reads Too Much.
At the start of this book it’s suggested that Colton is a bit of a douche bag, but honest I really didn’t feel that way at all. Yes he comes across like a bit of a player but he’s never and arse about it.
I really liked Colt he was super sweet and genuinely a kind caring person, he’s definitely a spoilt brat. But by the end id even started to find that endearing.
Every woman loves a white knight and Colton was fantastic one shiny armour and all. But Charlie needed to learn to rescue herself and i don’t feel like she ever did.
Please don’t think I’m diminishing Charlie’s strength and character, I just felt like she allowed herself to be coerced into doing what people wanted and I would have loved to have seen her stand strong and proud as a woman.
I loved it when Colt got all cheeky, he had so many different sides to his personality he was incredibly likeable when he wasn’t being a brat!!
I love Cade he’s a real sweetie and i can’t wait for his book to come out.
Stephen was a great psycho but I was just waiting for him to play his hand psychos never just walk away.
There were moments in this book that were incredibly sweet, but there were also moments that were stupid and aggravating I could have screamed.
Overall this was a sweet read and gets 3.5 stars from me.
This is the first book is this series and the first book I've read by this author.
Charlotte (Charlie) is on the run from her abusive bf and ends up in California on the back patio of a beach house that's empty but next door to Colton (Colt). Colton is a manwhore at the start of the book and from a well off family unlike Charlie who has nothing. When he meets Charlie he wants to help her and eventually after some persuading from him a friendship forms.
It was only a 3.5 * read for me because although it was sweet and enjoyable read, at times I wanted to pull my hair out at Colton and I found it really hard to connect with him at one point in this book I felt he didn't even deserve Charlie which is why it was that rating for me. Without giving to much of the plot away I did enjoy the overall story and writing style but it just needed that little bit more work for me especially when they hit that rough patch, and I needed to feel more of a connection to Colton but that's just my own personal feelings. Its hard to say exactly what I didn't like without giving a major plot part away but like i say it was a ok read for me.
I will be reading the next books in this series and am looking forward to see what happens with their stories.

I received an ARC from the author for an honest review.
Colton is about a guy named Colton (Colt) and a girl named Charlotte (Charlie). They are polar opposites. Charlie is from a blue collar family, born in New Jersey, and raised by her dad after her mom walked out. Colt is from old southern money, born in Georgia, and has parents that tolerate each other.
Charlotte moved to California after barely escaping from her ex Steve. He was the abusive controlling type. After going way too far one night she left him the next morning. Took what money she had and bought a ticket to California. After someone robbed her hotel room and stole her money she was homeless.
Colt can't take the pressure of being part of his family. His mother is a crazy woman who only cares about the family name and reputation. After another scandal Colt takes off to his condo in San Diego to get away from all the drama. He sees a girl sleeping on the back patio of the place below his. The girl being Charlotte.
After a while Colt manages to make friends with her and convinces her to stay with him. I will give the guy credit she didn't go down without a fight, she wanted to stay far away from him. Colt is drawn to her for some unknown reason. Well until he figures out she's not after his money, like he has to force her to spend any which he is far from used to, and she's beautiful inside and out.
"So much so, she takes my breath away. She’s the kind of girl who men sit down and write f***ing lyrics about. The kind of girl who can drive a man crazy with mad desire and only she can put the fire out. How did I not see that before?"
There was a time even that they had such a big blow out that Charlie left. To say she is skittish is putting it mildly. Nonetheless though Colt looked all over San Diego until her found her and brought her back home. That's when the relationship starts. When Colt realizes for the first time he's in love with her it's kind of comical:
"I’m in love with you. Holy sh*t! I’m in *bleep* love."
Colt makes the mistake of hiding things from Charlie and not fessing up before taking her home to Georgia for Christmas. That trip was the definition of a hot mess. It ended up with Cade Colt's brother putting her on a plane back to New Jersey like she asked.
At just shy of a year after she left Charlie spots Cade watching her in her local drug store. He knows her secret, she had Colt's baby and never told him. Cade went after her because he was sick of watching his brother waste away. To say Colt and Charlies reunion was pleasant would be putting it nicely.
I mean who could blame the guy? The woman he was in love with left, and now after all this time comes to him. Not only to tell him he's a father but tells him she's sorry. It takes a while but they get on the right track.
They eventually do get the HEA they both wanted and deserved. But not without lawyers, overbearing mothers, crazy exs, talk of jail time, and lots of cash spent. But it was worth it in the long run. Colt turned Charlie into a farm girl and had his own family. A family he never knew he wanted until he had them.
Writing style- 3.5/5
**I was given an ARC in exchange for a fair and honest review. Seraphim Book Reviews**
He leaves home to his private getaway place on the beach, just looking for some alone time away from his family and obligations they want to place on him and its there he finds more than quiet solitude. He finds someone he can be real with, someone he could care for deeply.
Charlotte, Charlie, has been on her own for a while, struggling to get by, but knowing she can't go back to what she left. She's found herself the perfect place to get by for now, if only she could get the neighbor to back off.
I love how Charlie threw Colton off his game, she wasn't at all like the girls he was used to, but he didn't want to give up either. He struggled to understand what it was about this girl that made him feel. He knew she wasn't what his family would want for him, but couldn't really find himself caring about that.
Of course things are not smooth and easy for Charlie and Colton, they have a lot to work through and things that seperate them on several levels, but ultimately they fit. I enjoyed the story as they figured things out and fought with and for each other. There were things on both sides that made me irritated but they were able to figure it out and did so in a manner that showed just how real their feelings were.
Colton was a sweet story that proves how love can change us and turn around our lives. How finding the right person can make us willing to do just about anything.
