She wanted to find Mr. Safe, but instead, Mr. Thrill came barging into her life.
Meagan Mitchell was hitting the big three-oh faster than she had ever anticipated, and she was on a full panic alert as she haven’t reached yet her five-year goal. All her life, she was always a magnet for Mr. Wrongs, and Mr. Bads – she did have a talent for picking up the wrong man. She is a one heck of a package – anyone would be lucky to have her, now why is she still single?
She was tired of meaningless hook-ups and one night stands, she wanted someone who is in for a long term. Then came Reed Porter.
Sometimes, the things we’re afraid of, the things that scare us the most, are the things that give us the biggest rush.
It was a very, very small world. Adrenaline junkie army captain Reed Porter lives for the thrill. He wanted to experience the RUSH all the time, it was his drug of choice. His bucket list is to die for (literally!), and settling down wasn’t on the list.
If it doesn’t make you hold your breath and shut your eyes the moment before you do it, then it’s not worth doing.
I like his character because he was sexy, and a one heck of a tease. I like watching Meagan fight her attraction against him – but I know, just from the time that they have seen each other (again?), that she was a goner. How long will she be able to fight it? She wanted someone safe, someone with a goal parallel to hers, but when their chemistry blows out of proportion, how will she be able to handle it?
The attraction and the chemistry was undeniable, they had the HOTS for each other – but Meagan was adamant that she needed someone SAFE, someone ready to be her partner in fulfilling her goals, her ovaries are about to expire, and she was tired of her mom pressuring her! When Reed tried a compromise, will she be finally willing to risk her heart and her future for Mr. Thrill?
I understand her panic attack, her obsession with the big three-oh, and her desperation of doing things that she thought she needed to do. But what I don’t like about Meagan is when she agreed to the compromise and suddenly wanted out because she was scared of things, her past was holding her back, and she was experiencing pain. She wasn’t willing to take the risk, when Reed, at that point that he gave in to a compromise was taking a risk as well.
I sooooo love Eva, she’s dear friend who is not afraid to speak her mind and call out BS when she sees one. She cared enough for the happiness of Meagan to tell her things that she NEEDED to hear, not what she WANTED to hear, and I loved her for it. Her character was just very cool, and carefree (I wish she’d rub off some one Meagan) and I can’t wait to read her story next!
I can still feel the Reed rushing through my veins. He was one HOT book boyfriend that made my night today. He can be sweet too – the EPILOGUE? If you think you could not love Reed more, you HAVE TO READ the epilogue, because Reed’s words were just swoon worthy. I know he can be sweet, and a tease, but I never thought that he can be perfect as well.
This is my first Kelsie Leverich novel, and I was just amazed by it. Why I haven’t read one of her novels before, I had no idea, but I won’t let another one pass after reading this one.
★ARC Copy was given in exchange for an honest review.★
Arrangement as well as other contemporary romance titles. Kelsie grew up in the small town of St. Joseph Illinois before getting married and following her husband from one Army post to another. After eight years, they finally settled down in Avon, Indiana with two adorable knuckleheads that are better known as her kids. Kelsie's life revolves around her family (to include three dogs and a cat) and most of the time, actually all of the time, it’s a crazy mess—but that’s the way she loves it! When Kelsie’s not writing, you can usually find her snuggling on the couch with her kids and a good book or out on the lake with family and friends. Kelsie is not a morning person, has a soft spot for animals, loves musicals, hates seafood, and thinks laundry is the source of all evil.
