In Nate and Crystal we have two people who feel deeply from the depths of their big hearts.
This book has it all. It made laugh, made my heart trip, made me tear up, but throughout I did not feel manipulated. I just enjoyed being completely caught up and involved. What a fabulous story!
Crystal loves hard and selflessly, just what Nate needs. As much as Nate tries to remove himself from the love developing between the two, he can’t and that adds endless amounts of sorrow to his already sorrow filled life. True love, heartbreak, olive juice, wine, and a dog. Jeannine Colette knows how to smash your heart and mold it into something new and stronger
***** I was given an arc from Give Me Books Promotions in exchange for an honest review******
Crystal Reid is a self-proclaimed serial dater who caves to her best friend’s plea to come to Nappa Valley and stay with her family to have a fresh start. Crystal believes in love regardless of the fact that when she took a chance years ago it didn’t work out for her. She uses dating apps (the dates are hilarious) and is positive she knows what she is searching for in her Mr. Right.
”I won’t settle. You know that. I have a clear vision.”
While waiting on her friend she walks into Henley’s Pub and she meets Nate Teller. Nate is the broody bartender who isn’t so sold on love yet he seems amused by Crystal. In the weeks that follow she meets several dates at Henley’s and Nate the bartender and her appear to be very attracted to one another yet become friends…
”We should do this again. Maybe bring your girlfriend.” It’s a half-assed invitation. Nate suddenly looks really uncomfortable. “About that. I hope I didn’t give you the wrong impression.
Crystal works at a rundown vineyard and helps breathe life back into the owner and the property. While Nate seems to send some interesting signals and their attraction grows.
”You look beautiful. How’s that for romance?”
“It would be romantic if you meant it. And it’s definitely not romantic since you are not romancing me”
“What if I were? What if this were a date, and I had changed my shirt three times after spending a ridiculous amount of time on my hair because I hadn’t done it in years?” He stops, and his eyes turn dark. “What if I were trying to romance you?” ”
Nate has a very big secret and when this secret comes to light it will crush our couple with it out in the open.
”I can’t be with someone, knowing I’m their second choice.” I pull on my lip and fight back my tears. Nate lets his own tears fall free. “And I can’t be with you because I’m afraid you’d be my first.”
I adored this couple and found Nate to be tough yet broken, sexy yet gentle, and made for truly wonderful hero. The author brings the story together and for me left nothing unanswered or unsaid. The supporting characters were all were strongly done, the humor, the attraction, the sex scene, the pain, the tears and the smiles.
”There she goes with the bom, bom, bom.”
Krystle is where many of us end up, living life day to day. We go to work, but is it what we really want to do? We go through the motions of life because it's comfortable, it's what we know. She decides to move to California from NYC to find "love". What she doesn't realize at the time, is that she is really trying to find herself.
Nate. Olive Juice, Olive Juice Olive Juice. You'll understand when you read it. He runs a bar and is gruff, closed off and quick with his opinions. Krystle comes in and orders a glass of wine. She's in Napa so she must want wine, right? Nope, he gives her a beer and the story begins.
I honestly don't want to give anything about this story away. I feel fiercely protective of their journey and can only wish that everyone will experience it like I did.
Added to the very top of my favorite, crack read shelf.
