Cant Shake You (River Bend, #1)
Can't Shake You is the first book in the small town, contemporary romance series, River Bend, by debut author Molly McLain.
Lovers to friends to lovers…could it get any more complicated?
One thing Carissa Brandt knows: spontaneity always get her in trouble. Still, she’s gone and jumped head first into an impulsive summer renovation project with her fingers crossed. When her contractor turns out to be a cheat, it seems her only lifeline is the proffered hand of Josh Hudson—the sexy Marine who left her aching for more than their single night together three years ago.
Josh has two hard and fast rules: never mix business with pleasure and don’t look twice at women his friends have dated, much less loved. It makes life in a small town simple—or it would, if he wasn’t harboring a secret with the potential to destroy his good name and the reputation of a woman he can’t get out of his head.
When Carissa finds herself in a bind, Josh’s integrity—both personal and professional—won’t let her fail. Will working together finally extinguish the attraction lingering between them? Or will the smoldering embers of their passionate rendezvous ignite all over again and set aflame the friendships they cherish the most?
Warning:This book contains a hella-sexy, inked up hero, a spunky heroine who isn’t afraid to speak her mind, smokin’ hot sex, and enough swearing to make your momma blush. For readers 18+.
Sarah's Review: I really enjoyed this book and the characters as well. I liked that the book was in two different POV's. I think it added to the story to get both Josh's and Carissa's POV's with their situations. I was a fan of Josh being the hot, tattooed, Marine. I liked that we just weren't following Josh & Carissa's love affair but there was another twist to it, dealing with Josh's job sites with someone out to get him. I can't wait for the second book in this series.
