Sapphire Falls, Book One
by Erin Nicholas
Genius scientist Mason Riley can cure world hunger, impress the media and piss off the Vice President of the United States all before breakfast. But he’s not sure he can get through his high school class reunion.
Then he meets the new girl in town.
Adrianne Scott loves Sapphire Falls. The sleepy little town has been the perfect place to escape her fast-paced, high stress lifestyle. Her only plans now include opening her candy shop and living a quiet, drama-free life.
Until Mason Riley bids four hundred dollars just to dance with her.
Mason sure doesn’t look–or kiss–like a genius scientist geek. In fact, he makes Adrianne’s heart pound like nothing she’s ever experienced. Passion like this with a guy who travels the world and parties at the White House should probably be a red flag for a girl who wants a simple boring life.
Good thing no one falls in love in a weekend.
WARNING: read only if you don’t mind some naughty words, sexy times described in great detail, humor, small town quirkiness, meddling best friends, mud in the kitchen, references to bisexuality, oh and talk about candy… and that’s not a euphemism for anything… actual candy.
I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this book. I found it for free on Amazon and even though I should have been reading other books in my TBR pile, I was drawn to it. I love the idea of the quirky hero and the woman who really understands him. It’s sweet and fun and totally made me happy.
The characters are addictive and easily made their way into my heart. I rooted for them from the first page and anxiously waited for them to get to their HEA. Mason is too smart for his own good, which makes him a bit weird to most people. But for someone who appreciates his big … brain, he’s just perfect.
And Adrianne is that person. She’s smart and caring and loves her new town. The people in it and the slower pace it can give her. The fact that she truly appreciates all those things that make Mason who he is just makes her extra appealing, to him and to us.
There are so many ways that the strife could have happened between the two of them, but I really love how Nichols made her characters smarter than that. Their difficulties (and how they handled them) weren’t cliched and that made their story all the more enjoyable.
