Summary

Getting Worked Up: Sapphire Falls, Book Two

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 fiancée - 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.

Thank goodness 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.

You should listen to this book if you like quirky small towns, over-the-top romantic gestures, hot descriptive love scenes, naughty words, and country music. You should not listen to this if you don't like - well, any of the things above.

Average!

Erin Nicholas is no doubt a really good writer. I like her use of description, it creates very clear imagery.

Kate Udall was okay. Unfortunately, people might find some parts of her narration annoying, but for the wrong reasons i.e. corny and annoying dialogue.

The story was way too corny and raunchy. It had potential, but lost the plot. To be honest, it didn't really have much of it - a few flirtatious, raunchy, and prolonged scenes with the lead man and woman i.e. Joe and Phoebe.

They supposedly got together to childishly split up and prevent their crushes from being together so they can be with them instead. However, besides talking so much, they never really set out to do that even once. Joe's extremely worldly, but yet naive. He didn't know sports or what WWE was. He thought tree houses were a myth. I found it all silly. Do you really need to be living in a small town or the country to know these things??

The people of Sapphire Falls seems to have awesome genes; strangely, every single one of them is absolutely gorgeous or good looking.

They kind of had jobs, but didn't ever seem to go to work. It was mostly sexual inuendos, raunchy talk, and sex. So much dialogue during sex, it was a put off.

The story and dialogue dragged for so long, but suddenly the ending was rushed. Plus, definitely one of the "cornyest" stories, dialogue, and endings I have ever come across.

Moreover, I'm not convinced Joe and phoebe eventually fell in love. Where was the room for that? Falling in serious lust however, that seems more like it

My first Sapphire Falls book. It wasn't boring, but it was definitely not great. Not sure they are for me.

Sorta Kinda

I basically liked this book but two things kept me from completely enjoying it.
1) During the intimate scenes there was too much much of the wrong kind of talking, in my opinion. It was too wordy and not in the hot, sexy way.
2) The narrator wasn’t my favorite.

Didn’t see it coming

I like the idea of romance in a small town where everyone knows everyone else,a sense of community.Phoebe is an outgoing,friendly,fear nothing kind of girl,as well as a knockout even though she doesn’t know it.Joe is a risqué City boy from Sin City who’s been around the block more times than he cares to admit,then he meets Phoebe,his exact type.He’s trying to settle down and what better person to do that with is his lifelong best friend Nadia,but Nadia is in love with Phoebes best friend and crush Matt.So they devise a plan to help each other to win the hearts of their friends by pretending to be dating each other,but it back fires a lot quicker than they expected,explains that maybe what they feelings for their best friends isn’t what they thought it was not if its so easy to give in to the passion blazing through them.

Ok

I didn’t enjoy listening to this book throughout the whole thing, BUT you really have to suspend belief quite a bit to but into the plot and the details of their strategy for getting the other loves…and the drama at the end m. Pretty silly, but I still enjoyed it.

Could not finish

Could get past Ch.2, what a load of inane drivel.
Female character dislikeable despite being everyones sounding board/bff, i think it was the constant verbal diarrhoea . Save your time 😪

Worthy of 5* even with critique

Oh Joe Joe Joe… *spoiler alert, will try to be vague*

I’ll preface by saying I know it’s fiction. With that, this type in the genre is based around real feelings, cause and effects, consequences, etc.

For Joe’s idea of pushing her towards others, leaving, and then just hoping he’s chosen in the end, there has to a strong attachment to the idea of “the one”. And not for yourself. You have to believe in the idea so strongly that you believe it applies to everyone.

Joe pushes her to see others and have the experience of being desired. Couple problems with that. First, the story said she did all of that. She wasn’t some blushing virgin, the opposite actually. She had that with men outside her hometown (story will get into why). So there’s a disconnect of her not knowing what it feels like to be desired. Second, I don’t want to speak for all guys as a guy, but our possessiveness comes from more than an innate primal place. It’s almost common sense. If you don’t lock her up, someone else will. Because in a man’s experience, no matter how intense the connection, if you sever it and push her towards other’s arms, she’ll eventually choose someone else for good. It’s one of the reasons we have to continue affirming that love in the relationship because if we don’t, again, she can choose someone else. Keeping other men away from “what’s ours” is another part of that. Less likely chance her eyes are drawn away… and yeah, that’s a little old school and maybe backwards, but it’s a realistic feeling that is part of what fuels possessiveness. That has to be mixed with the positive and healthy actions of consistently affirming that loving bond, of course.

But for a guy to literally push her towards others?? At worst, the girl is gaslit to the level of feeling she can’t live without him, at best I can imagine, is a foolish level of over-confidence to the point of stupidity which Joe clearly showed he a big lack of confidence in his actions. Yeah, he loved her and wanted her to have all the good feelings, but damn, there are a million other ways to enjoy and be happy in life. So she didn’t grow up in her hometown experiencing the joy of being openly pursued? It’s life, we’ve all lacked something major in one way or another.

I was impressed with how the author ended the story, though, and I’m glad it worked out in a way that kind of made sense.
