Publisher's Summary

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.

Very enjoyable

Enjoyed the mature storyline and real life dramas, nothing over the top and so I felt it easier to be sucked into the romance of the lead characters. I have found this the case of most of the north series, quite a pleasant change to the OTT and often juvenile drama/romance of many others in this genre. Narrators did a good job, nothing too irritating to distract you from the story.

Small Town Vermont & the smell of pastries - Yum!

I was sucked into this True North series as soon as I read book 1, Bittersweet. Bountiful has found itself on my favourites list too. I love everything about small town Vermont, apple & pear orchards, micro breweries & home made sweetness. This story is about a hockey player, Dave & prickly bar tender come coffee shop owner, Zara, who is also one of Griff’s past hook ups.

There are surprises in store for both leads and one gorgeous little toddler that weaves her way under Dave’s skin and makes him believe he can have it all. If you want a hot, sweet, country life read, have a go at this one. The audio narration is awesome too!

Easy listen

Easy to listen to book. Nice story. No real drama. There were some plot elements left unanswered. Not a sports based romance, it’s just his job in the background

🌟🌟 5 Stars 🌟🌟

I loved this book and stayed up all night to finish it. Sarina Bowen is a must buy author for me! This series has been great from book 1 but this one was my favorite I think. I loved the characters, they were both so good and normal, like they could be your friends. Dave and Zara are incredibly HOT together and they have a great connection. I loved them together from chapter 1. They have such amazing chemistry that you can't help but fall for their love story. I have a huge soft spot for Men with children in my books. This book was sweet, sexy, realistic and my favorite... Not overly dramatic!!!! I also love that all of these series are entwining but even if you don't remember the other books this could have been a stand alone.

The narration was great! Teddy Hamilton was the PERFECT choice for Dave. He really brought Dave to life for me! Seraphine Valentine was also very good, not sure if I have ever heard her before but I would absolutely buy another audiobook if she was narrating!

Feel Goods

The True North Series has been such an emotional, inspiring and sexy journey with a lot of very entertaining and interesting characters. Although the characters do show up from book to book, they do truly stand alone.

Although this book had not a great deal of action and goings on, i still couldn’t turn it off. It had my attention through and through. The characters were endearing, their chemistry palpable and the storyline was so sweet. I really, truly loved it.

Beautiful!

Zara & Dave

There are some series you are just invested in and this is one of those series for me. I love everything about it.

The small town feels, to the character’s in it. I am in love with it.

We meet Zara pretty early on in the series and you are intrigued by her and her story. I love how this story gives us the before, the meeting of Dave the hot hot, hot, f -buddy relationship to the now.

It really helps us to see the progression of the book but also the growth of both characters. This book unfolded so naturally there wasn’t any over drama which I loved. It wasn’t predictable either, and that was refreshing.

Lovvvved the narration it was exactly what this book needed. Teddy :)

Amazing

Every book in this series is better than the last. I keep thinking I’ve chosen a favorite, then boom the next book takes the spot. I can’t wait to read the next book in this series and go back and read The Brooklyn Bruisers!!

Loved it!

Sarina Bowen is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors and the True North series is awesome. This is the story of the hockey player and the prickly bartender. These stories are so down to earth and quirky at the same time. Every character in this series has a unique (some downright quirky) personality. I have thoroughly enjoyed each of the True North books! They are all consuming.

Good Story, But The Narrator..

Oh how a narrator can almost ruin a book! I totally enjoyed this story. I got sucked in from the start and Teddy Hamilton was his adorable, sexy best. The problem, for me, was that Seraphime Valentine was just awful. If not for Teddy, I’d have dumped this book after the first chapter. That being said, read it anyway. Perhaps you won’t hate Ms Valentine’s narration and then it’s a totally cute love story.

Not that great

The story was lacking, despite the summary being quite inviting. I was hoping for more than this story could offer.
