Life in a Rut, Love Not Included

by: J.D. Hollyfield

Publication Date: March 1, 2014


Having it all isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. 

When Sarah Sullivan’s perfect life blows up in front of her, she finds herself crawling back to the one place she never saw herself returning: Home.

At thirty-one, Sarah had it all. Perfect job, perfect boyfriend, perfect life. When all that is taken away from her, she is left heartbroken and angry and desperate enough to let her life swallow her whole…for a while.

Fending off love and the pursuit of happiness completely, Sarah vows to pick up the pieces of her shattered life. She creates a list of goals for herself—starting with a much needed shower—and constructs a plan to dig herself out of her rut. What she doesn’t plan for is meeting the arrogant new employee her parents have hired to work on an addition to their home. Enter Jack Calloway, the handsome, charming, lickable foreman with an insatiable effect on Sarah’s girly parts.

Jack accepts the job, but gets more than he bargained for. Unable to ignore his racing hormones—and calm his temper—over the obnoxious woman who clouds his judgment, Jack pulls her in and steals her heart until she finally surrenders. But is he up for the challenge of picking up the pieces of Sarah’s broken heart? Can he carry her out of her rut?

that’s not what I meant,” he says. “Look at me.” He holds my wrist firmly in

his grip, waiting for me to stop fighting his hold and make eye contact with

him. This just isn’t happening to me. “Sarah, look at me,” he says again, and

at the sound of my name leaving his lips I turn and look. I see scorching gold

eyes burning right into mine. Intense emotions drain out of his eyes and pour

into mine. “I didn’t kiss you because I felt sorry for you. I kissed you

because I haven’t stopped thinking about kissing you since I first saw you on

the street. Then the second chance I got after you walked into my office all

bent out of hell to drive me insane. I haven’t slept a good fuckin’ night since

I slammed my mouth on yours two weeks ago. What I’m sorry about is that I took

advantage of you in a vulnerable moment. It was wrong of me.
I really liked this book, the characters are fun and well written. Sarah did not realize how much life had changed her until she has the unthinkable happen to her. She wasn’t sure how or when it all went south and putting her life back together seemed to be harder than anything she could think of. Then she meets Jack. Their start was not very good but he does manage to show her that there is still life in her. But when her past comes back to her, will Jack stick around or will Sarah miss her happily ever after? I highly recommend this book!
