BLOG TOUR - Life in a Rut, Love Not Included


Life in a Rut, Love Not Included
by: J.D. Hollyfield
Publication Date: March 1, 2014


Synopsis

Having it all isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. 

When Sarah Sullivan’s perfect life blows up in front of her, she finds herself crawling back to the one place she never saw herself returning: Home.

At thirty-one, Sarah had it all. Perfect job, perfect boyfriend, perfect life. When all that is taken away from her, she is left heartbroken and angry and desperate enough to let her life swallow her whole…for a while.

Fending off love and the pursuit of happiness completely, Sarah vows to pick up the pieces of her shattered life. She creates a list of goals for herself—starting with a much needed shower—and constructs a plan to dig herself out of her rut. What she doesn’t plan for is meeting the arrogant new employee her parents have hired to work on an addition to their home. Enter Jack Calloway, the handsome, charming, lickable foreman with an insatiable effect on Sarah’s girly parts.

Jack accepts the job, but gets more than he bargained for. Unable to ignore his racing hormones—and calm his temper—over the obnoxious woman who clouds his judgment, Jack pulls her in and steals her heart until she finally surrenders. But is he up for the challenge of picking up the pieces of Sarah’s broken heart? Can he carry her out of her rut?
 
Nikki's 4* Review

It took me a couple of chapters to get into this book but once I did it was a great read.

At 31 Sarah as moved back with her parents after finding her boyfriend of seven years in bed with her so called best friend, this also leading to Sarah walking away from her dream job. Enter Jack the owner of the construction company hired to do some work on her parents house they don't get off to the best of starts when they meet let's just say Jack isn't very nice to Sarah and I would have happily give him a slap for her however once they start to get to know each other things soon change, but will a visitor from Sarah's past bring everything crashing down around them is there relationship strong enough to survive.
This book had some really funny moments where I literally had tears running down my cheeks I was laughing so hard but it also had some very beautiful moments between Jack and Sarah. A quick easy read and definitely one I would recommend.

Excerpt

“No, that's not what I meant,” he says. “Look at me.” He holds my wrist firmly in his grip, waiting for me to stop fighting his hold and make eye contact with him. This just isn't happening to me. “Sarah, look at me,” he says again, and at the sound of my name leaving his lips I turn and look. I see scorching gold eyes burning right into mine. Intense emotions drain out of his eyes and pour into mine. “I didn't kiss you because I felt sorry for you. I kissed you because I haven't stopped thinking about kissing you since I first saw you on the street. Then the second chance I got after you walked into my office all bent out of hell to drive me insane. I haven’t slept a good fuckin’ night since I slammed my mouth on yours two weeks ago. What I'm sorry about is that I took advantage of you in a vulnerable moment. It was wrong of me.
