Book 3, Men of Marietta
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
Keely Andersen hasn’t visited her hometown more than a handful of times in the last ten years, but when her doctoral research sends her back to Marietta for the immediate future, she can’t wait to reconnect with the community and the mountains she missed so much. Of course, nothing goes as planned, and Keely’s truck breaks down a few miles outside of town. When help arrives, she finds herself face to face with her brother’s best friend – the guy she used to call big, bad and gorgeous – Jonah Clark.
Still settling back into Marietta after a harrowing stint as an army helicopter pilot, Jonah Clark plans to spend a few days hiking the local mountains to prepare for his job as a pilot for Crawford County’s Search and Rescue team. When he stops to help a stranded driver, Jonah is shocked to find his best friend’s younger sister is the one behind the wheel. Only now, instead of the geeky teen he remembered, Keely is all grown up with curves he can’t resist.
Though the sparks of attraction ignite immediately, they're hesitant to act because of their shared past. But when a project dear to their hearts is threatened, and a boy is lost on Copper Mountain, Keely and Jonah drop everything to fight for what matters, including each other.
This is a fantastic addition to the Men of Marietta series! It's a nice relaxing read that is well written with very interesting characters. A bit of humor, a bit of angst, some great sexy times makes for a great quick read.
Jonah Clark is next up for the Men of Marietta calendar. So far he's been able to avoid everything calendar related but his time is running out. Now Keely Anderson is back in Marietta and applying her own kind of sweet pressure so what chance does he have. These two have known each other a long time but because of the connection with her brother they have avoided acting on any attraction. They aren't kids anymore though and now seems like the right time to see what could be there.
A recommended read.
Daring the Pilot
Another great addition to Men of Marietta. Keely, brainy has returned home to Marietta when she runs into Jonah, whom she has known for years. Jonah is good friends with Keely's older brother. Jonah has also returned to Marietta after leaving the army as a helicopter pilot, he now works for the search and rescue team. They share an event from years ago. There is an immediate attraction between the two, but Keely has always been off hands to Jonah. Now that they are adults, they finally decide to act on their attraction.
Loved the connection and magic between Keely and Jonah. Jonah is so caring to Keely. Great chemistry and humor between the characters. I highly recommend this book along with the other books in this series.
Keely +Jonah = awesome!
I adore Keely!! Don't get me wrong, I love sexy, take charge Jonah...the best friend of Keely's brother, and long time crush. But brainy, sweet, funny Keely is my kind of heroine. After being away from Marietta for the past 10 years, she's excited to be home, even if it's only temporary. But imagine her surprise when Jonas shows up to "rescue" her...and she discovers he's back living in town. That long ago, almost forgotten crush (please, like we ever forget our first crush!) throws her off her game. Jonah always like Keely when they were young, but as his friend's smart and cool little sis. Now he's seeing her differently, and he likes it.
I read this book in my one sitting...I couldn't put it down and I didn't want it to end. As a romance reader, I've laughed, I've cried, I've ranted and raved. But I have never before honest-to-goodness swooned...until their first kiss. If not the best, at least in the top 5 kisses of all time! Jeannie Moon always brings her A game, making her a must-read for me. With Daring the Pilot, the streak is unbroken.
