Fearsome by S.A. Wolfe - Book Tour, Book Review

Jessica Channing’s big city life should be more exciting than sixty-hour work weeks and popcorn nights with her girlfriends, but it’s not. She has worked hard fulfilling her role as a child prodigy and graduating college years before her peers. She’s the good girl, the brilliant girl.

Unfortunately, she’s also the dateless young woman.

That all changes with one phone call. Jess’s rigid, predictable life upends when she must visit a small, obscure town to deal with a relative’s death. This isn’t just any little speck of a town, though. Long lost memories come crashing down on Jess’s world when two men, the Blackard brothers, seem to lure her in.

Dylan is cover model handsome, and pursues Jess the minute she comes to town. Then there is tall, dark and gorgeous Carson, who hides his own secrets behind his hardened reserve.

For someone who has been governed by her own obsessive behaviors and fears, Jess lets her guard down and jumps at the opportunity to have an affair with a man she actually finds attractive for a change.

There’s just one problem. Jess discovers that she can’t have a simple romantic fling because true passion does indeed come with some very big strings attached to it. She will have to own up to her own truths about love and face the two extraordinary men; both troubled in their own ways and both determined to have her.

She’s a genius and she’s talented. She can solve quadratic equations on her brain and can paint amazing pieces that are unique enough to wow critics. But her life has been lonely, she had worked too hard for a young age, fulfilling her role as a child prodigy and had graduated her college degree ahead of time. She’s a nice girl, a good girl, an intelligent girl, a boring girl, a lonely girl without someone to love.

Don’t get that wrong, she’s a serial dater – but none of the men she dated appeal to her. One phone call changed her life overnight when a death of a relative she could barely remember left her with an inheritance. She breaks her schedule, leaves her apartment and job and went to the small town two hours away from Manhattan. A town she hardly knew existed until her aunt died. But the more she spent in town, the more time she spent with the two Blackard brothers, who are way different from each other, memories from the past comes flooding her senses.

While Dylan is the charming, friendly, total player that chases Jess the moment she enters town – Carson stays on the sideline. Responsible, serious, tall, dark and handsome Carson who seemed to carry every burden in the world.  

For the first time in her life, she wanted to be carefree. She wanted to live her life, enjoy it and have meaningless sex. But what is meaningless to her may have some heavy strings attached to someone else.

HOW LUCKY IS THIS GIRL??! She has two handsome, totally hot, rich guy wanting to have her attention. I get it that she wanted to finally have fun after all the hard work she had been through – but she should have heed the warning that has been given to her. It would have saved them all the trouble.

I have liked Dylan at first, then hated him, but when you understood what he had been through and how trying his life has been, you would have no choice but to love him. And Carson – how can you not fall in love with someone, who at a young age become a father to his brother?! He had not enjoy his life, gave up a lot of things to take care of his brother and be with him when he was needed the most. But what if they both love the same girl – will he be able to give her up for him? Or will he finally fight for what he wanted?

The story was a bit longer than what I expected, but I enjoyed reading it. S.A. Wolf wrote a story that will have you captivated: the conflicts, the surprises, the characters and the sexy scenes – it’s a complete package you would not want to miss. Here are two characters, who really deserves their happy ending and is once again given another shot at love. 

★ARC Copy was given in exchange for an honest review.★

Carson takes a couple long strides and is in my face before I can count to one. He has to lean over to be at my eye level. He places his hands on the counter on either side of me so I’m trapped. “He thinks you’re going to stay here for good. He thinks he has a chance with you. I want you to be honest with him and explain that you’ll be going back to your real life in New York.”

He moves so close to my face, I find myself staring back into his beautiful eyes that never leave mine. He is nothing like Dylan; I can see that in this moment. Carson is only three years older than his brother; however, he might as well be twenty years older. He carries a weight—a burden in him—that is marked by a serious, unwavering demeanor. I think a part of me remembers this about him and another part of me remembers trying to coax the fun side out of him. I know I have seen him laugh, the memory is there, buried with all the other fuzzy images, yet right now, I only see a man who is trying to look strong because there’s something that worries him.

If he’s trying to be intimidating and rouse my anxiety, it’s working. After a short stare-off between us, he moves back. My small victory is that he seems to be at a loss for words, too.
S. A. Wolfe lives with her wonderfully loud, opinionated children and husband. She is a voracious reader and passionate about writing, and when those two activities don’t keep her locked away in her room, she loves hiking mountains as much as she adores all the thrills New York City has to offer.
