Is it possible for me to move to Blue Moon Bend??? Book 2 is just as awesome as the first one.
Beckett Pierce Blue Moon Bend’s most eligible sexy brooding bachelor and the beautification committee is poking around in his business, but after his last crazy girlfriend handcuffed herself to his porch and set his welcome mat on fire, he has had enough and is not looking for anything remotely romance related.
Gianna Decker life is complicated enough as it is with two kids, a useless ex, and a brand new yoga studio, the last thing she needs in her overflowing hands is a man.
The relationship between Beckett and Gianna sweet, sizzling and swoon worthy. Once again Lucy has managed to write a story that is the perfect blend of comedy dram and sexiness.
I enjoyed the book. I have read the first book "No More Secrets" of this series and will read the next book. I have lived in small country towns where everyone knows about you and your family. I liked the different characters in the book and dynamics of each character. A good read.
Lucy Score accomplishes what she set out to achieve in Fall Into Temptation - a contemporary romance with a story set in a quaint, small town (and the town is just as important to the storyline as the characters and plot). While not a serial (thankfully), the books are best read in order as there are connections. However, each book is a complete story, which is good to know. The tone of this book takes us deeper into the importance of family and community. Blue Moon Bend's second Pierce bachelor succumbs to love in book 2 when he meets a gorgeous yoga instructor (Gianna) who is warm, loyal, hardworking, honest and a real woman with deeply held family values. Beckett is the town’s lawyer-come-mayor whose motivation is to emulate his father, a generous, but simple man of integrity. Beckett comes across as conservative, but there is a lot more to the real man than meets the eye. The attraction between Gianna and Beckett is immediate and powerful, but of course there are several complications to forming a relationship and there are many differences in their approaches to life. Both are reluctant to complicate things further by getting involved but, oh the temptation! Some of the things I loved about Falling Into Temptation are: The writing, plot and pace were very good and the characters were relatable and well-developed. It was good to catch-up with The Pierce family and regulars from Blue Moon Bend as well as meet Gianna's two children who were very important to the plot (Evan's circumstances were heartbreaking and Aurora couldn't have been cuter.) I also loved the sassy, funny and honest dialogue between Gianna and Beckett. In addition, Lucy used normal people in normal situations to highlight each of her characters' personal journey through life, what makes them tick, how they handle challenges and how they grow as people. It was remiss of me not to continue the series earlier (not sure how i missed it??) So, now it's on to Jax and Joey's story.
I am officially in love with the characters in this series as well as Blue Moon! This story is so much more than just the love and romance between the two leads, but had so other wonderful elements that made it impossible to put down.
The sense of family and community that Lucy Score has created with this series is just wonderful. Beckett is absolutely swoon worthy, Gianna loveable, and these two are almost overshadowed by Gianna’s children Evan and Aurora who really added to this story.
Contemporary romance is not my first choice nowadays but this author is one I do like very much. Really enjoyed watching Gianna and Beckett find their way to each other. Great background story with Franklin and Phoebe and lovely to have Summer and Carters wedding taking place. Of course, Beckett had to make a major faux par but I laughed out loud at how this was resolved. The people of Blue Moon really have a way about them.
