With every release Erin Nicholas puts out in the Sapphire Falls series, I always catch myself saying, “Oh this is my favorite.” It is truly hard to just have one favorite in such a heartwarming, family oriented, small town series where each and every one of the town folk touches your heart.
Ty is just sexy fun throughout the Sapphire Falls series. Its Ty’s time to shine. So let’s see what the youngest Bennett is up to. Even though Ty’s plans have changed from having his eye on the gold prize, after an accident he returns and puts his full attention on wooing Hailey Connor. Erin Nicholas hit a home-run for me with Ty’s personality, loving, caring and always has a smile. I enjoyed his interactions with his siblings.
Hailey is a sassy goal driven woman full of so much TRUE love for her home town, she became Mayor. Hailey is hiding a secret, could this discloser be the end to everything Hailey desired? I will not spill the beans but, I want to applaud Erin Nicholas on giving great understanding to Hailey’s stumbling block. It only made her more real to me.
Hails & Ty together create combustible chemistry I felt it down to my toes. Their witty banter, along with their ability to pull it all in to deal with some unpleasant truth about themselves. Their arrangement works fine for them Ty takes over and gives Hailey what she needs and Hailey gets the distance she needs to keep hidden. All that changes when TY moves back to Sapphire Falls. Can Hailey trust Ty with the one thing she considers her biggest flaw?
Supporting characters are as always so loving and fun. Thank you for introducing us to a few new characters, Bryan and Tess. There is always a pleasant feeling I get when I re-connect with everyone and see the growth within them all and the town. I will have to admit I missed the festival in Getting Over It. *grin* I adore Kathy Bennett she is my favorite book mom of all times, no matter if she gave birth to you or not she gives it to you real.
The plot is as always small town oriented but, Erin Nicholas gave us a few twist in Getting Over It that gave me a bit of a shock and left me smiling in the end. As always love the scenes at Dottie’s and The Come Again. I can’t wait to see what the future holds for Erin Nicholas and Sapphire Falls.
Ty didn’t give her a chance to catch her balance—figuratively or literally. He let the plate drop to the floor as he cupped her face between his hands, kicked the door shut behind him and turned her to press her against the inside of it.
He leaned in until their mouths were a millimeter apart. “Say yes,” he told her gruffly.
She started to shake her head, but he held her firmly, willing her to look him in the eye.
“Hailey Ann, look at me.”
Finally, she lifted her gaze.
“Ask me to kiss you.”
He loved making her ask for what she wanted. Many a time, he’d made her beg. Was it because he had a deeply ingrained competitive streak and huge ego? Maybe. Was it because he was naturally dominant in the bedroom? Probably.
Did it go back to high school, when hoity-toity Hailey had walked the halls like a queen? Oh yeah.
But this wasn’t a time for begging.
All he needed was a nice please.
Hailey wet her bottom lip. The one he was sure had not trembled earlier. Her gaze moved to his mouth and Ty felt his body tighten and heat.
“Okay, you can kiss me,” she said softly.
Yes. She would never be easy for him, and that was exactly what he wanted.
He shook his head slowly. “I’m not asking permission. This isn’t your mayoral office. You’re already getting ready for the orgasm you know I can give you. But only if you ask nice.”
“All you have to do is speak and I’m on the verge of orgasm, huh?” she scoffed. But the breathlessness in her voice took some of the sarcasm away.
He grinned and stroked his thumb along her jaw. “You’re so conditioned to coming apart for me that you hear my voice, you smell me, you feel my hands on you and you’re about halfway there.”
She rolled her eyes, but her breath caught too.
He knew he was right, and he felt a jolt of adrenaline akin to the feeling he got pulling ahead of the pack on his bike. Excitement and anticipation and arrogance all combined to give him a heady pleasure he would continue to seek out, against all odds.
It was better than any high he could get from any other source.
“Come on, Hailey,” he encouraged huskily. “Ask me to kiss you.”
He bent his knees and put his nose against her neck, breathing deep and relishing the way she seemed to stop breathing. He ran his nose up and down, skimming the soft skin of her throat with a barely there touch of his lips.
And finally, he felt her lift her hands and slide her fingers into his hair.
“Ty,” she said, panting softly.
“Say it.” His lips were against the pulse point at the base of her throat that was fluttering fast and hard.
Her head fell back against the door and she arched into him. “Kiss me, Ty, please.”
