It’s taken Clea Rose ten years to get over the one night she spent with bad boy Nick Lombard—a night of teenage passion that produced her son, and sent Nick to prison for murder. Now, with her life finally back on track, Clea’s about to marry a wonderful man and leave town for a promising career in New York. The last thing she expects is Nick’s return and the intense feelings he stirs within her.

Sent to prison for a murder he didn’t commit, Nick Lombard comes home to the tiny town of Port Bliss to attend his mother’s funeral, but he doesn’t count on running into Clea. Seeing her reminds him of everything he’s tried to forget, and everything he longs to remember. When Nick learns Clea is about to marry the man who sent Nick to prison, he knows he must stay and fight for the family he was forced to leave behind.

Against all odds, Nick and Clea must find their way back to the summer they were young lovers on the beach in Port Bliss, realizing that together their love is strong, strong enough to survive anything, even the web of lies that separated them ten years ago

My Review:
I hadn't heard of Falling for Nick until I came across it in a freebie status on FB, so I read the blurb, thought it would be a good read and got it. I picked it out late last night and started it. I finished it about an hour ago. I couldn't put it down. I fell in love with Nick from the moment he showed up at the cemetery even though I knew nothing about him yet. finding out he had just gotten out of prison and that there were things that were being kept "secret" about what happened and why he was in prison, I knew that something was amiss. I was getting angry with Clea for holding back her feelings for Nick and pretending Robert was what she needed, when clearly, she was not over Nick. but I am happy that she opened her eyes and did right by Nick and their son John

Fate brought her here, but will her choices destroy her dreams?

Quincy Priest made all the right choices in her small town, black-and-white life. But being perfect is tiring. So. Very. Tiring.

Wanting desperately to step out of her sister's shadow, Quincy jumps at the opportunity to attend college with her best friend. The quiet bookworm with family secrets comes out of her shell. But when Quincy meets not one, but two perfect guys, she has to make a choice. In doing so, she might forfeit the relationship she secretly longed to find.

Declan. Sweet, handsome, and perfect. He makes her feel cherished for the first time in her life.

Brody. Sexy, hot, and irresistible. He could tear down her carefully built walls.

Before she can become the woman she wants to be, Quincy will make mistakes. And suffer one unimaginable loss


My review:

From the moment I knew this was gonna be a triangle, I wanted to scream no don't do it Quincy! lol
when I read her sister was bipolar, I could relate, sort of. My sister in law( of 25 yrs) is bipolar and has been since she was in her teens. I have seen both sides of the coin as well too many times. It's hard and it sucks. I felt for Quincy when she says that she needed to move away so she could "live". From the moment she laid eyes on Brody, I knew there was trouble a brewing. Then Declan makes the first move and boom, here comes the triangle. I love the safety she feels with Declan but the heat and desire she feels for Brody is off the charts. I wish she could have been more truthful with Declan because he didn't deserve any of that.
The desire between Quincy and Brody is hawt!!!!!!!!

Can't wait for Fate in Brody's POV coming mid November!

Being a part of the Reid family, Delaney Grace Reid has seen her share of dreams come true. Her grandmother began the fairy tale and most recently, her cousin Jake found his true love and married her in a picturesque wedding on the Fourth of July.
Delaney has always been a realistic dreamer. She knew from an early age that Donovan Taylor was the only man she wanted to marry and never wavered in her twenty-two years of life. Not much different from her favorite fictional heroine, Cinderella, her initial “courtship” with Donovan paralleled Cinderella’s relationship with the wicked step-sisters and wicked step-mother, combined. Also like Cinderella, she looked upon each day with a smile and hoped that he’d notice her and become her prince one day. Even with the help of “Jaq,” “Gus,” and “Bruno,” (namely, Jake, Emily, and the Reid family), Donovan never actualizes his feelings for Delaney, and at the end of their ball, she reluctantly chooses to look elsewhere for her prince.
At last the glass slipper is found, and Donovan comes to realize what’s been lost and chases after our princess in no less a fairy tale-fashion. He courts her through Europe and proves to her that a “dream is a wish your heart makes,” and that he will make all her dreams come true. Should Delaney believe in this dream come true or should she beware of enemies lurking, attempting to squash her final hope?
Unlikely Attraction is for the young at heart who wished upon a star, once upon a time. It will make your heart feel like it’s falling in love for the very first time, and when not feeling giddy with joy, tears of heartache will flow. This book is for lovers and dreamers who know that their prince will come no matter the obstacle before them. For princesses who believe that their glass slipper is half-full, this is the story for you. Half-empty princesses need not download.

My Review:
I just finished this story yesterday morning. What can I say about it? It's truly a fairytale HEA, with A LOT of work put into it.  Delaney Reid has been in "love" with Donovan Taylor since she was 10 years old, when he came to her house with Delaney's (much) older cousin Jake. Delaney knew it was love at first site and that she would marry Donovan Taylor one day. But of course, with 10 years age difference, Donovan just thought of her as a cute "little" sister. As the years go by and Delaney grows up, her love for Donovan just grows, and he is still oblivious to it all. Until she moves away to London for a year. Donovan cannot get her off his mind, does everything he can to make her realize that he has finally come to the fact he is in love with her. But Delaney doesn't let him off that easy. As soon as she gets off the plane in London, she meets Michael and his sister Ruby & they all hit if off immediately. Michael wants Delaney to be his girl, but she is not ready to let go of Donovan and tells Michael so and that she may never be able to let him go. When Donovan realizes that he may lose Delaney to another man, he steps up his "game" to claim her for himself.

Not wanting to give much away, I just have to end with:
I loved Delaney's Wedding present to Donovan!!!!! Perfect! The wedding gifts from the ladies was a hoot!  
Delaney and Donovan's story was "cute", "frustrating", "happy" "sad" and most of all a wonderful fairy tale ending for Delaney (& Donovan too)!

 I cannot wait for Donovan's side of the story. I love hearing both sides. And now that DW has said she will blog the beginnings of Nick & Bee's story, we will have more Reiding in the near future.

First off, I'd like to thank N.M. Silber for sending me this book. I LOVED IT!!! Cannot wait for Home Court Advantage to be released. I laughed so hard. I want to have hot monkey sex now too!! LOL. I love Gabrielle's Bubbe...she reminds me of my late Gram, always spoke her mind too. Braden is hot!
"Please, please, please can I keep him mom? I promise I'll take good care of him! Oh baby, I'll take care of him!" I love that quote from Gabrielle.
oh and this one...."Look at me Gabrielle," he demanded. And I fixed my eyes on him dazedly. He gave me the hottest Braden sex look I had ever seen. :Let's see if it fits now, baby," he said in a voice that sounded like he was barely holding on to his self-control.

Hurry up with HCA!!!!!!!!!! -------- Lori
