Just Getting Started (Fair Lakes #2) by Kaylee Ryan & Lacey Black
My life isn’t exactly going as planned. I’m basically floating up a certain creek without a paddle. Desperately needing a new place to live, I receive an offer I can’t refuse, and you never look a gift horse in the mouth, right? Unless that particular mouth is connected to an uber sexy manwhore that makes me want to punch him in the face and then kiss him until I pass out from lack of oxygen. I must avoid him like the plague.
Gabby Connor; there is no request too small in my eyes. When I blurt out an offer I know she can’t refuse, I don’t think either one of us realize that our lives are about to change. Something else I didn’t comprehend, how hard it would be to keep my hands off of her, or my mouth, or my… you get the picture. It’s our time, no more hiding or waiting in the wings. I’m pulling out all the stops. I’m tired of being in the friend-zone. It’s time to take what I’ve always wanted.
But nothing is easy for us. Our road is full of twists and turns and a few surprises along the way. When push comes to shove and the cards are thrown on the table, can we navigate a new life, especially when we’re just getting started?
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This books was so much fun! Full of twists and turns, I never knew what was coming next! Gabby and Chase were perfect for each other, even when they couldn’t see it themselves. And the surprises! I love when a book keeps me guessing, and this one definitely did that!
Gabby’s life is all topsy-turvy! She is getting ready to be homeless, and she can’t find a place that appeals to her (or is safe!) She gets an offer for a temporary refuge, but she just isn’t sure. Chase has the reputation of a ladies man, and she isn’t sure she will be able to resist temptation if she gets that close to him!
Chase isn’t who he portrays himself to be. He knows he want’s Gabby in his life, but isn’t sure how to show her he’s serious. And then, when he thinks things are moving in the right direction, the last thing he ever expected throws his life in a tail spin! He has to figure out how to adapt to the new developments, while still being true to himself and what he wants from life.
This story was absolutely amazing! Chase and Gabby are fun together, and I love the tension between them, right from the beginning. I love that they already know each other, and are friends. I enjoyed their verbal sparring, and the explosive heat between them! I love how Chase holds his true self back, showing it only to those he is closest to, and how Gabby responds to him! This is an absolute must read for anyone that loves these two authors!!!! It was the perfect follow up to It’s Not Over, and I’m really hoping they continue the series!
