that's grabbed ya for one reason or another.
You can add a review or post just a quote. You can post other days of the week too. Totally flexible.
So a pretty new author but one that's quickly turning into a favorite. Jenna Sutton. This is based on a family that owns a huge jeans company. I just love them! It's fun and sexy and the setting is unique. Anywho. This one just cracked me up. I love a good shock the pants off someone quip so the heroine totally made me smile with this...
Nick smiled. Kate was a hugger. In fact, all of the O'briens were huggers. It was how they said hello, good-bye, and almost everything in between.
Tegan continued, "She's renovating the kitchen, and I swear she spent forty-five minutes telling me about her new cabinets. She's decided to go with a color called 'fresh sage', which is basically light green. I asked if she was sure that green cabinets were a good idea, and she told me that I'm not adventurous enough."
He chuckled. "Go on." he prompted.
"I told her that I'm adventurous where it matters: the bedroom."
He jerked his head toward her, certain she hadn't said what he thought he'd heard. Her blue eyes held a wicked little glint, and her glossy lips tipped up at the corners."
"You did not."
He couldn't tell if she was joking, but it didn't really matter. Her words had already sunk into his head and settled into his groin.
"I did, too," she replied, nodding emphatically.
"After a few moments, during which I envisioned her mouth opening and closing like a pet goldfish, she said, "Good. I'm glad to hear it."
Coming Apart at the Seams (Riley O'Brien & Co. #2)
Oh yes. Sutton has charmed me completely!
Okay so the quick of it is that Nick was best friends with Teagan's brothers and while the two of them were living away from home for a few years they struck up a friendship of their own. One that, of course, led to more...and a spectacularly bad break up. And, now, years later, Nick is ready to make amends and try to win back the woman he's never stopped loving. She however? Still mightily pissed. Even if she still, damn her, wants to lick him all over.
The heroine. She's a force. Lively. And she can hold. a. grudge. My kinda girl! lol I actually really liked her even if she was a spot stubborn now and again. She was caring and funny and pretty dang strong.
The two were interesting. She's very much a talker which complimented his quiet nature and really seemed to get him and how he thought. I loved watching them become friends while they were away from home years earlier, seeing the attraction build and finally something coming of it before it all (holy crap) crashed and burned. They had amazing chemistry and, whew, the naughty bits when they were together...niiiice. The romance was pretty slow building, had the glorious going up in flames moment and then brought the fire when he tried to make amends years later and she just wasn't having it. It definitely kept a girl on her toes.
My only quip was something we talked about on here a few weeks back. Heroines who slap their hero when they're angry. I wasn't loving the scene where it happened in here. Or after when another woman told him he deserved it and he agreed.
Overall, though, Coming Apart at the Seams was fresh, unique, and left me totally smitten. I'm loving the O'Brien clan and can't wait for more.
Nick has fortune, fame, and looks that make most women hot and bothered. But he doesn't have the woman he really wants. He knows he screwed up when he walked away from Teagan, and now that he has a second chance, he’ll do whatever it takes to win her over—no matter how tongue-tied he gets...
