As a resident of a Rust Belt city, I was so thrilled to see a story set in a city that isn't super popular in romance novels: St. Louis. It's not as cool as New York, and there wasn't a billionaire in sight. Hallelujah!
This was a story about two people trying the best they can, with lots of fun steamy times in between. What Nicole Helm did in this story is something that she has done so well in all her other books: she writes imperfect characters trying to get by, with challenges and situations readers can relate to on a personal level. Yeah, relationships of all types are hard and families can be hard to deal with. But it's how her characters handle these situations to get their shot at love is what's so great. My heart-strings were tugged! You've got to do what's right for you, and not for the expectations or your family may have placed on you.
And Helm's writing is really a cut above the rest. The phrasing, the description, the metaphors, they're all great. She's really one of my favorite writers.
I also really like Kayla's character and am really excited for her story!
Dina Gallagher’s life was going nothing like she’d planned. Not work or her love life. She’d spent her whole life busting her butt to prove her worth to her family business, her legacy. And for the past 8 months, her love life had consisted of emails with her mystery boyfriend, C. He was the hottest sex she’d ever had, even if it was via computer. They didn’t trade pictures or any personal info that would identify them. Just pure, harmless, sexy words. C wrote like poetry. They traded elaborate sexual fantasies but he always ended the exchange with something sweet and romantic. And as for Dinah, D could say things she’d be too afraid to say in real life. On-line there was no embarrassment or fear of rejection. At first, it had just been sex-mailing, but the last few weeks it had seemed to become more real. In spite of their exchanges being fantasy, there’d been some truthfulness there too. It seemed easy to confide in someone you’d never know.
Carter Trask was barely holding on to his legacy. His family had a history of selling out rather than fighting for their land. Sure, the money had been good, but he’d spent his life moving from one place to the next, only to have it sold. He’d inherited his grandmother’s little house in the city and had turned it into something he was proud of, Front Yard Farm. Now the Gallagher’s wanted his land for their own business venture. The Gallagher’s were rolling in money, and people with money always managed to get what they wanted. People like him were trampled in the name of progress. Well, not this time. Carter was standing his ground.
Gallagher’s wanted the little farm near their restaurant and Dina was in charge of securing the deal. But when Dina approached Front Yard Farm, she realized the place looked very familiar. This was the same place mystery man C had dubbed his “little slice of heaven” in their exchanges. Was C Carter Trask? When Dina confronted Carter, he was shocked to discover the gorgeous woman before him, the one he’d been having e-mail sex with, was a Gallagher. She wanted his farm. The last piece of himself. No matter how beautiful she was, this could not change anything. But as Carter and Dina stared at each other, remembering all they’d said and done, neither wanted to lose that fantasy. “What if we pretended the real us didn’t exist and lived out the fantasy us? Just this once.” So they attempted to keep reality and fantasy separate. During the day, they were Carter and Dina, but at night C and D were there acting out all the fantasies they’d written. Carter thought Dina was the sexiest woman he’d ever known. She was adventurous, smart, and mischievous. She was the perfect mix of everything. He felt like he belonged with her. A feeling he’d never had before. Dina thought Carter was charming. He made her feel special. She’d never been like this with a man before. It was easy to let her guard down with Carter and just be. The more they were together, the harder it was to remember they were enemies battling for a piece of land. Soon fantasy and reality began to blur and reality was a lot more complicated than the fantasy had been.
When I first read the blurb and intro to this book, I thought it would be heavy on the sexy and light on the plot. I was so wrong. While it was an extremely sexy read, it was so much more. The perfect blend of sexy and self-discovery. With its poignant character histories, rich humor, and captivating plot, this story was an exceptional read. There was so much to love about these characters. Yes, their chemistry sizzled and the erotic aspect was intense, but they also were just really likeable, relatable characters. I loved Carter’s honesty, the way he genuinely laid his feelings on the line. I loved Dina’s energy, devotion, and passion. It took her a while but she finally figured out what she wanted most in life. The secondary characters, especially Kayla, were equally strong and intriguing. I look forward to reading more of the Gallagher family. I voluntarily reviewed an advanced readers copy of this book.
Dinah and Carter have been having an email sexual affair for 8 months and have no clue they live in the same general area, but when Dinah must confront Carter to buy his land to expand her family’s businesses she puts it together and confronts him about it which leads to them becoming sexually involved and eventually more. First off, I have no issues with the fact these two met based on a Tumblr photo and moved on to sexy emails which by the way, maybe I’m a bit slow but I still can’t figure out how they managed to reach mutual self satisfaction while emailing back and forth. Anyway, I like that they met in an unusual way and were thrown together in the flesh so to speak for a totally different reason, but I had a very hard time really liking either one of these characters and I felt like they got to the “I Love You” stage very quickly considering the only thing they’d been exchanging in the last 8 months was sexual fantasies, not getting to know you information and within a few weeks of meeting one another they were in love.
Let me just say that Dinah was stubborn, shallow and a bit too confident considering she really had no power in her family’s business and was willing to do anything to get some power. I admired her gumption, but I hated that she would ask for someone’s opinion or help and then immediately dismiss it. I appreciated what Carter had built and the reasoning behind it and that he felt strongly about staying connected to something that had belonged to his family for generations, but at times he was whiney and so pessimistic that I wanted to give him a slap upside the head. Together there was no denying their chemistry or the fact they knew exactly how to give each other what they wanted or needed sexually, but I felt the emotional connection was lacking. They’d share a bit about their lives but they never delved deep into how they were feeling with what was happening around them.
There wasn’t a single secondary character that I liked, not one. While at first I liked Dinah’s cousin, Kayla she turned into a bit of a selfish b*tch and I have nothing good to say about the others. I also felt like the big ultimatum Dinah’s grandmother gave her was contrived to create more drama between Dinah and Carter something I could have done without.
Overall, I felt there were just too many crucial elements to this book lacking making it very difficult to fully enjoy.
