Kiss Me That Way - Laura Trentham

A river divides Cottonbloom in two: the upscale enclave on the Mississippi side and the rundown, rough and tumble side in Louisiana. They’re worlds apart—but nothing can build a bridge like love…
Cade Fournette never had it easy Cottonbloom. He stuck around long enough to raise his orphaned siblings and then hightailed it out West—and never looked back. Even though he’s made a success of himself in Seattle, Cade never lost the toughness and the angry edge that helped him survive down South. His only weak spot: the girl he left behind…
Monroe Kirby came from the wealthy side of town, but that didn’t protect her from her mother’s drinking—or her mother’s boyfriend. It was Cade who did that, on a long-ago hot September night, before he disappeared…along with a piece of her heart. Now Monroe is a physical therapist who can fight for herself, and it’s Cade who could use some conditioning when he makes an unexpected return back home. Will he and Monroe pick up where they left off and finally explore their mutual passion—or will the scars and secrets of the past divide them once more?

Kiss Me That Way is a perfect story of true love. Though their story started out as protector and protectee when Monroe was 13 and Cade was 18 (I think I got that right), years later when they meet again their story continues as they fall in love. Monroe has learned to defend herself against the foes from her past and anyone that means her harm. I love her. She's evolved and determined to help others learn to protect themselves as well. Cade didn't want to come home but when he finds Monroe again he discovers he wants to still protect her. Though he's rough around the edges he's a hero who can truly sweep a reader off her feet. He loves his family and Monroe unconditionally and will do anything for them. 
If you enjoy a romance with story meant to make your heart swoon with a touch of suspense I highly recommend Kiss Me That Way.
