Magnolia Road Book Review

BOOK DETAILS: Magnolia Road by J. Lynn Bailey (Granite Harbor #3) Publication date: January 29th 2019 Genres: Adult, Romance, Suspense

Description: On the outside, Bryce Hayes is satisfied with the structure of her life, her demanding career, and series of no-strings-attached relationships, but her brother bounces in and out of rehab, her mother thinks she can beat her son’s addiction, and her father is simply doing what he can to keep a semblance of “normal”. When Bryce’s father, Congressman Hayes, orders her to Granite Harbor, Maine, due to a string of threats to their family coming from an unidentifiable source, she doesn’t expect Ethan Casey, the sexy soldier who slept with her, then walked out, without so much as a goodbye, to be her landlord. Ethan’s past is riddled with chaos, bullets, and loud noise. After returning to his small town after the war, he’s determined to get back to his roots. Peace, quiet, and working as a game warden for the Maine Warden Service sounds right as rain. But with Bryce in Granite Harbor, staying in his house on Magnolia Road, Ethan can’t stop thinking about his future—and that includes Bryce. But to make things right with the love of his life, he’ll have to open old wounds…and risk losing her forever. Note to readers, each book can be read as a stand alone.

MY REVIEW:

Once I started reading this book I couldn’t put it down. My husband came into the room and turned off the lights because it was bed time, not once but TWICE! I even took the book with me to work so I could read it on my lunch break. I enjoyed the small town love story, but inside that love story there were struggles including PTSD and Addition. I felt something for each character and enjoyed the build up of how it ended. I like how I knew something about each character and when a new one was introduced it was not too little information about the person there was just the right amount and how they intertwine with the main characters. My most favorite part of this book is when Ethan is with James and James’s says “You can’t control life, Ethan. The only things you can control are your attitudes and your actions. Everything else, you’re powerless. You can’t control how love works. You aren’t that powerful” . That part is so real, truthful and powerful to me and hopefully others. Which is why I typed it out in my review. I do recommended reading this book and I know that this is the third book in her series and plan on reading the others soon.

Thank you for taking the time and reading!

The Road Back Book Review and Giveaway

What the book is about:

It has been a year since Karina Hawkins learned her husband had been killed in the line of duty. Now as she does her best to raise their young twin daughters alone, Karina decides to return to work in another attempt to rebuild her broken life. But when she arrives at a tech company to begin her new role as general counsel, she has no idea what awaits her inside.

Sawyer Banks has never forgotten Karina. Although he is a man with few regrets, losing the love of his life is one of them. Now that Karina is available and he is her new boss, he has every intention of getting her back and he is not stopping until she is his again. Although their chemistry is undeniably delicious, Karina is uncertain if they can overcome the hurt and secrets between them. But when a threat from her past returns and places her family in danger, Sawyer must prove if he is strong enough to stand by her and not abandon her once again.

In this erotic romance, a widow passionately reconnects with her soul mate just as her past comes back to haunt her, leaving them both to wonder if their relationship will survive.

My Recommendation:

I enjoyed this book so much! It was happy, sad, super sad, hot, steamy, interesting and sexy! Pretty much everything I love in a book! I could read this book and imagine it happening, maybe someday it could be a movie! I highly recommend reading this book! I didn’t want to put the book down. I need and wanted to know what was going to happen next. It kept me interested and excited to see how it ended. I needed and wanted a good happy ending. There are some major twist in the book that I did not see coming and that was also part of the fun of reading. Each character in the book I felt like I knew and I can’t wait to read the next book that Marla is sending me.
