I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
What happens when a bossy ex-military officer meets a stubbornly dedicated psychologist at the gym? Well, in this case sparks will fly, that’s what.
Landon has been forced back into civilian life after an injury not only busted his knee but the chances with his military career . Now with a somewhat satisfying desk job yelling at people, all his pent up energy and bossiness is spent at the gym.
Ava is a very dedicated psychologist. She’s devoted her life to following her five-year life plan, focusing mainly on her job at the practice and her patients. When the big 3-0 hits, she starts to realize the socializing and romantic part of her plan is sorely lacking. So what does an educated, organized and practical woman do about this? She makes list, of course. Lists with the attributes or characteristics her ideal partner should have.
Then Landon sees Ava at the gym and despite not really wanting a relationship he finds himself pursuing her. Ava sees the blond giant coming at her and knows he doesn’t fit with her list… that doesn’t mean she can help herself or withstand his relentless chase.
I loved Landon. He was the epitome of bossy alpha male but he was also sweet, loved his family fiercely, and in spite of all his not wanting to be in touch with his feelings spiel, he was refreshingly self-reflective.
Ava was a different thing altogether. She was way too self-contained for my liking, and in true psychologist fashion, she loved to over think everything. In her defense, she was truly devoted to the well-being of her patients and she loved her family dearly, her sarcastic humor and ability to match Landon toe for toe endeared her to me, and mostly made up for her annoyingly tendency to think things over 1929725765 times.
With fantastic banter, two bullheaded people with great chemistry, scorching hot sextivities and great side characters, A Sure Thing was a great read and I can’t wait to read more in this new series.
