Series: Sapphire Falls Book #1
Author: Erin Nicholas
Blurb: Genius scientist Mason Riley can cure world hunger, impress the media and piss off the Vice President of the United States all before breakfast. But he’s not sure he can get through his high school class reunion. Then he meets the new girl in town. Adrianne Scott loves Sapphire Falls. The sleepy little town has been the perfect place to escape her fast-paced, high stress lifestyle. Her only plans now include opening her candy shop and living a quiet, drama-free life.
Until Mason Riley bids four hundred dollars just to dance with her. Mason sure doesn’t look—or kiss—like a genius scientist geek. In fact, he makes Adrianne’s heart pound like nothing she’s ever experienced. Passion like this with a guy who travels the world and parties at the White House should probably be a red flag for a girl who wants a simple boring life.
Good thing no one falls in love in a weekend.
Thoughts: As soon as I pick up something from Erin Nicholas, I know I am guaranteed a good read. I have not read a single book by her that I didn’t love, and this one is no different. I was especially excited for this one, since I was a little down after reading the last book in her Counting on Love series (which I was particularly connected with). I loved that series and hated to see the end of it. So, to be introduced to an all new series, with all new characters? Simply heaven….:)
I loved the characters of Mason (the former high school nerd turned rich sexy hunk) and Adrianne (the former workaholic turned small town country girl). I mean who thought a bunch of math gibberish could be so sexy? Mason can write notes on me anytime!…LOL I think this book is the perfect start to a new series, and I can’t wait to see some of the other characters get their own story! The downside? I think this one lacks a little bit of that special something that we know and love from her Bradford/Counting on Love tales. It’s still great….c’mon, it’s Erin!….but it just has a small spark that seems absent in this one. I can’t even really pinpoint what it was…but I look forward to rediscovering it in the next book!
