The Suit (Holly Springs #1) by B.N. Toler

The SuitBlurb: What happens when two dreams collide?

Fed up with the farm life and his one-time love of training horses, John Wilson has traded his tattered boots and jeans for power suits and cufflinks. Through hard work and determination, John has just graduated from law school and is focused on a fresh start. Refusing to let his bitter past hinder his future, John is intent on moving forward with his new life.

Except there’s one last thing he has to do—settle old debts before he can truly move on.

Unfortunately, settling debts involves him returning to a life he’s worked hard to forget. A mind-numbing summer working on a horse farm awaits him, and he’s dreading every damn minute of it.

Edie James is mourning the loss of her grandfather when John Wilson shows up in his perfectly tailored suit, reeking sexiness and city elegance—everything she’s not. Their meeting is less than pleasant as they both distastefully size up one another.

She thinks he’s arrogant and a white-collar yuppie.

He thinks she’s a simple, goody two-shoes farm girl.

Edie’s grandfather made a new will before he passed leaving stipulations in order for Edie to inherit the family farm. And as if that wasn’t enough of a challenge, the suit has to work on the farm with her for three months to settle a debt he owed to her grandfather.

And he’s moving in with her.

With a rocky start, the two seemingly polar opposites call a truce and attempt to be friends. As their unexpected friendship blooms, an attraction develops and both realize their first impression of each other is far from the truth. Now this once dreaded summer is set to be the hottest and most unforgettable they’ve ever had.



Favorite Quote: 

“Porn gives you an image. You only see what they want you to see. Books let you fill in the blanks, make it what you want. Books give you the idea of fantasy, but you get to perfect the lover in your mind. In porn we watch them touch one another, in a book, with your imagination, it’s like they’re touching you.”

This book had some great ideas for spicing up your sex life.  LOL.  The story had a good pace.  It had some great emotive description and there were no loose ends that needed to be tied up.

That being said, I thought that Edie was a bit too mature for her age but that’s just me.  It was like she felt she had something to prove to everyone in town.  But in reality it was just her own insecurity eating at her.  And that didn’t really appeal to my personality. But I did like her. Her passion for saving her grandfathers horse farm was admirable.  She just didn’t wow me, ya know?

John was my favorite character in this story TBH. I don’t think him less for changing his mind, in fact, I admire him for it.  I change my mind all the time. I just think he didn’t really give himself a chance before bailing. And the whole not giving the long term relationship a shot kinda bothered me because I saw no reason why they couldn’t continue having a relationship that way.  He did have enough pride to see it through to the end and at least try to live without her so there is that.

I’d read more by this author.  This book is only 99 pennies, I downloaded the sample before fully committing because I barely have a buck to spend on books these days, at least, until my job transition is complete.
