Sapphire Falls, Book 2
Phoebe Sherwood is in love with the perfect man. Well, except for the fact that he’s in love with someone else. But Phoebe isn’t the type to let a little detail like that keep her from getting what she wants. And as she’s plotting how to get him back, she meets the perfect solution—Joe Spencer. The city boy is in town to retrieve his sort-of fiancé—the woman who stole Phoebe’s man— and when he hears Phoebe’s plan to reclaim their respective soul mates, he’s in
Bright and sparkly. That’s Joe’s first impression of Phoebe. He’s always been attracted to sparkly things—like neon casino signs, sequined evening gowns and Porsches. In fact, his affinity for those things, and the trouble they can cause, are exactly why he’s determined to change his habits and settle down.
But if he’s going to win his girl back, he’s going to need to learn a new way of life. Country line dancing, guzzling homemade moonshine and getting rid of his custom-made suits are what it takes to fit into Sapphire Falls… and he’s got some work to do.
But Phoebe is the perfect coach.
And everything will be just fine… as long as they can keep their hands off of each other and remember which hearts they are trying to win over.
JJJJJJOOOOOOOOOEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!! (Yep. No backstory. Just going into the review. 🙂 ) I loved Joe. Even more than I love my nerd lover Mason. I was really feeling Joe throughout the book but the more I got to know about him and his past the more I fell head over heels in love! He has some insecurities that weren’t the typical that we usually see in the males of our romance world and it just made me go awwwwww and turn to a mush puddle.
If Phoebe was an actual person, she would be in my close group of friends and we would get along so well. I enjoyed her in Getting Out of Hand but I instantly clicked with her in this book. She’s in your face, bossy, but is everyone’s friend and everyone loves her. But what she doesn’t know if that Matt, the guy she’s convinced she’s supposed to end up with, is Matt has made it clear to every eligible male in Sapphire Falls that Phoebe is his. So she doesn’t realize what a catch she is until Joe starts showing her that she is desirable. She has a moment where she’s freaking out about not being sexy enough and Joe’s there and handles it very well. Seriously, he was so great. I loved him so much! (Yes we are back to that. Lol.) It’s funny how these two people thought they were supposed to be with other people-Matt and Nadia, who were actually together-but were made for each other.
And just like what I talked about in the Getting Our Of Hand Review, these two fell in love pretty quickly and I loved it. I think, for these two, if their love story was drawn out, it wouldn’t have worked out too well. (Now I will say there was this one part where they weren’t together for a period of time but it’s still quicker than some relationships take to form.)
We got to see some some more of Lauren and Travis who will be in the next book, Getting Dirty, and I know I will love their challenges that will be thrown their way in their book. I have enjoyed reading Lauren in these past two books and know I am going to like her a lot. 🙂
And again, there is nothing in this book I would change. I really don’t know how Erin does this-writes perfect books to me each and every time. I’m just going to start calling her a magician!
