REVIEW BY APRIL EPLEY
This is a 18+ book please. This is a sexy, steamy and very emotionally gripping story. Shayne has done it again! I loved it. I would love to see some of the other characters develop more. Give me more please!
JoEllen Astor had to grow up way too fast. It was as if she was the adult and her mother was the grown child. She is smart (very educated), sturdy and seems to be able to handle everything thrown at her. She is a sweetheart and I loved her to pieces. Even though life keeps trying to kick her down, she rises and does not allow defeat. Yes she has trust issues, you would too if you grew up the way she had. She is graceful in a way that amazes me and I very clearly see her in this story. I wish more people would appreciate life the way that Jo does.
Jo works at The Dog Pound bar. All the while she is a master carpenter, welder, web designer and working towards her electrical degree. WOW! When she meets Holden Mayes, he is a bit of a mystery to her. When she gets home that night!!! OMG what a surprise. Regret for him and shock for her. Even though they form a friendship that is heartwarming. Oh did I forget to mention that Holden is the most patient man ever! On top of being sexy with his intense green eyes. When tragedy strikes he is there to help Jo in so many ways! He is such a romantic sweet man! I love him!
Twists and turns abound in this story! Life does not define you, You define life! This is a true story of that. This is an up and down, side to side book that will keep you hooked from beginning ot end! I am gladly giving this book 5 huge stars. I just loved it. It will keep your emotions reeling. You will probably cry (I did), yell, cuss, smile and maybe jump up and down. Please do yourself a favor and one click this book now! You will not regret it. Thank you so much Shayne for another wonderful story and I am looking forward to much more.
“I have no idea what it is about you that draws me. I’ve been watching you for months. I ran into Donna outside Walmart and she was an older version of you… I didn’t know how accurate that was at the time. I’m not excusing it, just explaining. I came back to see you…not your mother.”
“I want to give you lots and lots of windows – so you can see all the beauty you’ve been denied, JoEllen.”
“I will soon enough. I’m not worried. This is all worth the life I’m gonna build myself. I take sh*t now and do what I have to so I can have a window later.”
“To me, life is like gravity. You have to let it keep you grounded, but you can never let it keep you down.”
She whispered, “A window. This is what waking up with a window is like.”
Life should keep you grounded...it should never keep you down.
JoEllen Astor grew up poor in one of the worst trailer parks in Oklahoma. A childhood spent taking care of her mother and working hard has made her world weary already.
One night, she meets Holden Mayes, a man who thinks she's far too young for a man like him but can't help but want her. He makes a mistake that almost derails their relationship before it ever starts and is determined to make it right...no matter how long it takes.
Their accidental friendship is the only thing that keeps her together when tragedy strikes that shakes the very foundation of Jo's world.
When a man is slow, steady, and determined in his pursuit...how long can you fight your feelings for him?
Read about overcoming anything and everything life throws at you so you can have your own happily ever after. Another hot, emotional read from Always the Good Girl, Shayne McClendon.
