He can’t stand her, and best believe, the feeling is mutual.
Her life is the complete opposite of what he desires.
So, why can’t they keep their hands off each other?
Forrest Nash is a smug know-it-all. With his brains, ridiculous good looks and penchant for disobeying the laws of both the police and the dark web, Fawn Hill’s resident genius is cockier than any man Penelope Briggs has ever encountered. It doesn’t help that their six-year age difference makes him completely ineligible in her eyes. Add in the fact that he doesn’t want marriage or babies, and that should eliminate him from the dating pool forever. But it doesn’t mean she can’t sleep with him. Once. Or twice. Or ten times. Against all logic, though, Forrest seems to be sneaking into her heart at the same time he’s sneaking into her bed.
Penelope Briggs is one bossy, obnoxious woman. With three young children, a calendar full of school drop-offs and sports, and enough emotional baggage to fill an airplane, this widow is definitely not what Forrest Nash is looking for. And yet, he can’t get enough of the maddening bombshell. But as their hook-ups become a constant, so does his involvement in Penelope’s life. The things he swore he never wanted, love and kids, seem to be the only things on his mind. And when an attack from his part of the cyber world threatens her safety, he’ll have to admit his feelings for the woman he’d do anything to protect.
What started as a convenient friends-with-benefits situation is quickly growing wings. Even if both parties are trying hard to ignore the flutter.
Rating: 4/5 Stars
“Flutter” is another great book by Carrie Aarons. I loved getting to revisit their small-town world, and getting to see the characters from the previous books a little while down the line. It was also great to be able to dive deeper into the lives of Forrest and Penelope, since I had seen them as side characters in the previous two books.
The book was a relatively quick read, it took me about three hours or so. The vibe of this book is the same as the others, but there is the added aspect of Penelope’s children, which is something that the other couples in the previous books didn’t have to deal with. We also see Penelope continue to struggle a bit with her husband’s death, and I liked how both his (Travis) and her family were integrated into the story. Forrest and Penelope’s love story has been a long time coming, and it was a sweet read.
Overall, this was a great book, and I can’t wait to dive into “Falter,” the final book in the series!
