Review and Giveaway: Getting Worked Up

GettingWorkedUp Getting Worked Up by Erin Nicholas

5 out of 5 Licks

Sapphire Falls, Book 2

Phoebe Sherwood is in love with the perfect man. Well, except for the fact that he’s in love with someone else. But Phoebe isn’t the type to let a little detail like that keep her from getting what she wants. And as she’s plotting how to get him back, she meets the perfect solution—Joe Spencer. The city boy is in town to retrieve his sort-of fiancé—the woman who stole Phoebe’s man— and when he hears Phoebe’s plan to reclaim their respective soul mates, he’s in

Bright and sparkly. That’s Joe’s first impression of Phoebe. He’s always been attracted to sparkly things—like neon casino signs, sequined evening gowns and Porsches. In fact, his affinity for those things, and the trouble they can cause, are exactly why he’s determined to change his habits and settle down.

But if he’s going to win his girl back, he’s going to need to learn a new way of life. Country line dancing, guzzling homemade moonshine and getting rid of his custom-made suits are what it takes to fit into Sapphire Falls… and he’s got some work to do.

But Phoebe is the perfect coach.

And everything will be just fine… as long as they can keep their hands off of each other and remember which hearts they are trying to win over.

I really, really liked this book.  I loved that both Phoebe and Joe’s initial plan was to win the heart of someone else and they wound up falling for each other.  Don’t get me wrong, you can see it coming from a mile away, but it was so much fun watching them realize it.  lol  The title for this one is perfect because I found myself getting all worked up while reading it!  Phoebe and Joe were perfect for each other.  She balanced him so well and the chemistry between the two raged like an inferno.  Erin Nicolas has a way of writing that just sucks me in and won’t let go.  I wanted nothing more than to see Phoebe and Joe together forever.  I recommend starting this one when you don’t have to worry about work the next day.  I refused to stop reading this book once I started.  I can’t wait for more from this series!  I’ve only seen three covers so far but I really hope Erin writes more.  I have such a hard time letting go of her characters!

    I try not to read the same trope over and over. I like to mix it up. I’m over the billionaire and the virgin. I do like the former military men who do something super human. I have a soft spot for the military.

  17. jessiel62
