On the surface, I have it all—a career I adore, a loving family, the Nixon metabolism but not the Nixon ears, and a salary that supports my lavish taste in designer shoes, fine wine, and lacy lingerie…but I have no one to share it with.
Until the day I run into him—my one night stand from college with the cocky smile, let’s-get-out-of-here eyes, and dirty, dirty mouth.
Levi Brooks is six feet four inches of hot bearded fantasy. A sexy single dad with broad shoulders, strong hands, and a fantastically big…heart. (I mean, it’s massive. And generous. And it pumps so hard… um. Sorry. Lost my place.)
But he lives for his son, and he’s keeping me at a distance because he thinks I deserve someone better—a man who can give me more time, more attention, more of himself. He doesn’t believe he could ever be enough.
But he’s wrong.
Some Sort of Love is the third book in the Happy Crazy Love Series but it can be read as standalone. Each book is about a Nixon sister. I haven’t had the chance to read Skylar’s story but I did read Natalie’s and loved it. All three sisters are amazing in their own way. Now onto Jillian’s ever after…
Jillian had it all. A career she loved, a loving family, and an impressive shoe collection but she was lonely. She wanted what her sisters had, someone to welcome them home after a long day, a love like no other. And going to her sister Skylar’s wedding dateless was just another reminder that she didn’t have that and it didn’t help that others would be making it even clearer. But, what she didn’t know was that she would run into him. The boy she would never forgot, now was the man she wanted again…
Levi doesn’t get out much. He is a full-time single dad to an amazingly sweet boy but it was a challenge. But, tonight, he was just a man that saw the woman he has dreamed about for the last eleven years. He never forgot her and now she was here at his friend’s wedding. He wanted a second chance but could it even be possible? His life isn’t easy and knew from the moment he saw her, that she deserved more than what he could give her.
Levi and Jillian reunited that night and she started to be his Girl Friday. It was the only days of week they could be alone. In their bubble even if it was only a few hours. They decided to take things slow but when real feelings developed, they felt the shift. Will Levi always want to be two different people or would he want to combined the two? Could he let Jillian into his son Scotty’s life? Will the guilt of loving her be too much? Can Jillian prove to him that he deserve to be happy without feeling selfish?
I loved this story! I fell for the characters instantly. They are both strong, filthy-talking, beautiful souls that deserve each other. They just need to believe it themselves. I thought it was awesome that Levi and Scotty’s challenges were so involved in the book. It made them even more lovable. Then there was Levi and Jillian of course, their chemistry is sexy, their sexting skills are on point, and they love their whiskey. It was also great catching up with her sisters and their men.
Overall…it’s a beautiful, sexy, emotional, and fun book. I highly recommend reading thi series!
“I could hardly concentrate at work. If you see a vacation house shaped like an erection in Petoskey, you’ll know that was the one I worked on this week.”
He kissed me again and pulled me into his arms. “I don’t deserve you, Girl Friday. But I want to.”
“What are you doing?”
“Shh. Don’t talk.”
“Because I’m trying to make my hard-on go away, and hearing your voice gives it ideas.”
“I could make it go away,” she said sweetly.
“Gah! Stop!” I put my hands over my ears. “You’re giving it hope!”
