When Ethan Bishop returns to the Hudson Valley, his body and spirit are a little worse for wear. As a former Special Forces paratrooper, he saw his fair share of conflict, and he came home with wounds, inside and out. At his sisters’ B & B and farm, he can keep all his pain at a safe distance. But quiet time isn’t easy when a fiery woman explodes into his life…
It’s business—not pleasure—that brings Manhattan PR agent Mia Thrush reluctantly to the farm. Tightly wound and quick tempered, Mia clashes immediately with the brooding Ethan. Everything about him is irritating—from his lean muscles and piercing blue eyes to his scent of sweat and musk.
But as the summer unfolds and temperatures rise, Ethan and Mia discover how much they have in common: their guarded histories, an uncontrollable desire, and a passion for the future that could heal two broken hearts. But will their pasts threaten their fragile chance at a brand-new future?
There’s this judgement that comes with reading romance books right? Well, I’m here to tell all the judgy Mcjudgerson’s (wow that spelling is probably atrocious) that romance books are my new chick flicks! It’s like I’m watching a rom com but it’s longer… so I have more of it to enjoy! I made a goal this year to read more romance and I’m so glad I did because now I have a new genre to pick up when I’m not feeling fantasy.
The Start of Something Good was adorable! It’s as if I was watching a cute tv show. Why did nobody tell me this before?! I liked how sassy the main character was and I liked how the chapters were from alternating perspectives between Mia and Ethan. Also, I really like when there’s some hurt and inner turmoil going on for the characters which is always necessary for me to connect with characters in romance books. Another good element this one had was the side characters, I really need to know more about them and I have a feeling the next book will be about one of Ethan’s sisters.. I am ready for it.
Definitely grab this one for a feel good summer read!
