*I received an ARC from the author! I’m so excited to have been selected to have a post on the blog tour!!
Presley McDaniel lives her life from moment to moment.
Making permanent decisions means obligation, and that would force her to stop being the family disappointment. Waitress, fitness instructor, dog walker … you name the hourly job and she’s probably held the position.
But when her grandmother can no longer run her book shop in Fawn Hill, a town so small it barely has its own zip code, Presley steps up to help.
The move from bustling city to green pastures may be exactly what she needs to sort out her life. But she didn’t ask for that happy ending to include a gorgeous veterinarian with an all-American smile and a penchant for snuggling puppies. The good doctor is reliable, responsible, and just the kind of man Presley has always avoided.
Love and commitment are predictable.
So why, the moment she lays eyes on him, are they all she wants?
Keaton Nash has never questioned his steady path.
His brothers may tease him about settling into his father’s passed-down role of small town veterinarian, but Keaton has never minded his rural roots. And after tragedy struck two years ago, he has a duty as the eldest Nash man to look after his family.
What he doesn’t need is the sexy, flighty stranger who shows up in town and gets his broken heart beating again. Presley McDaniel is a distraction, a red-headed temptation that is the definition of a bad idea.
He’s barely recovered from the love who left him to chase bigger dreams, and this woman is bound to do the same.
Except for the first time ever, he wants to abandon stability.
She makes him want to be reckless.
Rating: 4.5/5 Stars
I’ve read “The Tenth Girl” and “You’re the One I Don’t Want,” so I was crazy excited to have the opportunity to read an ARC of “Fleeting,” the first book in Carrie’s next series!
The book is told from two points of view, Presley’s and Keaton’s. It’s great getting to see inside both of their heads to see how they interpret their interactions with each other differently.
Presley and Keaton make a cute couple, even though they’re very different people, which is apparent from the start. Keaton’s still mending his broken heart, and Presley’s a total flight risk — she runs at the first sign of commitment, and Keaton has commitment written all over him.
I loved getting to see both of them transform throughout the book, absorbing different aspects of each other’s routines and personalities. They’re really good for each other.
We also get to meet Keaton’s brothers, who the rest of the books will follow (each Nash brother gets their own book), and we are introduced to some girls whom Presley befriends that I think will pop up in the next books.
Overall, this was a lovely book and I really enjoyed reading it! I can’t wait to read the rest of the series. Due to some sexual content, I’d recommend this for 17+.
