Contemporary Romance by Delancey Stewart

Stand Alone

Book Boyfriend: 💋💋
Oliver “Hale” Cody is dealing with a lot. He recently needed a break from the company he founded with his father to figure out who he really is and what he wants from life.  His hiatus ended too early and not on his terms when he learns of not only a sudden tragedy, but also a secret his family has kept from him. He is bitter and angry, to say the least. When he meets Holland, he is caring and supportive. Truly wanting to help. As the story goes on, every time something happens to throw him off, he runs and acts like a total ass. He is really a good guy and redeems himself in the end, but it was a little too late for my liking… not exactly an ideal book boyfriend – great potential but no execution.

Strong Female Lead: 💋💋
Holland O’Dell has a plan: get her dream job, fall in love, and have a family – in that order.  She’s had a rough upbringing and wants more for herself. She graduated in the top of her master’s program for analytics yet a guy at the bottom gets her dream job at Cody Technology.  She is able to get a sales position and hopes to transfer sometime to the analytics department.  While she is trying to complete number 1 on her list (internal transfer), she meets Oliver Cody, except she doesn’t recognize him as the CEO of the company she works for. She falls for him – fast. Holland starts off feisty, driven and not afraid to speak her mind.  As the book went on and her “plan” gets thrown all out of whack, we lose this side of Holland.  The independent and girl who wants to achieve things on her own merit and skill gets lost.  She spends most of the book worrying about how the things she accomplished on her list are perceived by others and doesn’t put up a lot of fight for things she wants. Holland is strong at times and about some things, however, at times, she is so emotionally blinded that she just goes along with things that aren’t true to her original character. It turns out for the best, but her character is inconsistent and not the strong female lead we so wanted her to be.

Plot: 💋💋
I couldn’t figure out where the story was going. There are some major events, but nothing that really strings together to make a solid plot line. I had trouble really connecting with the characters and even rooting for them was a challenge at times. Oliver was such an ass at times that I wanted him to have to really fight to win Holland back and if not, I didn’t want him to get her at all.  The end resolved a lot of things but most of the time I just wanted them to get their shit together!

Steamy Factor: 💋💋💋
There is definitely some steam (pool scene = wow!!). The relationship, at the beginning seems to be all about the physical aspects and there is a good chunk of the middle that I thought all they did was have sex or talk about sex. This can be nice if there’s character connection and plot happening while… not so much of that happening.  There is definitely some chemistry, but not enough to make you starry-eyed.

Overall: 💋💋
I struggled through this book. I really wanted to love it, but kept waiting for something to happen or to make some kind of connection with the characters and it just wasn’t there. The book started off strong with the potential for plot/characters but fell short as the story progressed.  It needs something extra – emotional connection – to get it there.

Book Summary from author:
He’s tortured and dark, angsty and arrogant. You want the truth? He’s kind of an A-hole.

He’s also the CEO.

Everything in my life goes according to plan, and that’s the way I like it. I got the degree. I got the job. Now I just need to prove that I have what it takes to succeed in the real world.

If there’s one thing that’s
not in my plans, it’s falling in love with my boss.

Most relationships don’t start with one person calling the other out in public for being an arrogant jerk. Then again, most CEOs don’t cut their own employees in line at the coffeehouse and bark orders at people like they own the place.

Maybe pissing Oliver Cody off isn’t the right move. And now that he’s part of my world, all my plans go straight to hell.

From USA Today Bestselling author J.L. Berg, comes a breathtaking story that shows us how love truly can conquer all…even the most damaged of hearts. 
Within these walls, he became my solace, my sanctuary and my strength. 
I am not strong. I am just a survivor of circumstance.
Isn’t that what we all do? Survive?

Each of us has our own set of circumstances to muddle through. Mine are just more…complicated. 
Born with a severe heart defect, I’ve seen the inside of a hospital room more than my own bedroom. 
I was drowning, a prisoner to the illness that owned me, until he appeared. He thinks he’s blocked out the world with his tattoos and hard exterior, but I see the real Jude, the one he so desperately wants to forget. 
But is he the answer to my prayers or will he break my already damaged heart forever?

My name is Lailah Buchanan, and this is our story of hope, redemption and sacrificing it all for the one you love. #Repost @thecurvysavante (@get_repost)

•••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••Wild Card is the first book in a new standalone trilogy that is set in a rural Canadian town called North Ridge. Each book is about a different Nelson brother. Wild Card is about the youngest brother, Shane. 
Shane is a dreamy, hot cowboy that is helping run the family ranch. He was a good boy that turned into a great man. Rachel moved to North Ridge when she was a kid. She quickly became friends with Shane and something more blossomed over the years. Rachel's life was never easy. She dreamed of running away. 
Wild Card is a second chance romance. I highlighted a lot of passages while I was reading this book. So many of the words were just beautiful descriptions of what was going on or being felt.  I enjoyed this book and I can't wait for the other two books in this trilogy. North Ridge is a fun book world to visit.
