Life in a rut, love not included by J.D. Hollyfield
Having it all isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.
When Sarah Sullivan’s perfect life blows up in front of her, she finds herself crawling back to the one place she never saw herself returning: Home.
At thirty-one, Sarah had it all. Perfect job, perfect boyfriend, perfect life. When all that is taken away from her, she is left heartbroken and angry and desperate enough to let her life swallow her whole…for a while.
Fending off love and the pursuit of happiness completely, Sarah vows to pick up the pieces of her shattered life. She creates a list of goals for herself—starting with a much needed shower—and constructs a plan to dig herself out of her rut. What she doesn’t plan for is meeting the arrogant new employee her parents have hired to work on an addition to their home. Enter Jack Calloway, the handsome, charming, lickable foreman with an insatiable effect on Sarah’s girly parts.
Jack accepts the job, but gets more than he bargained for. Unable to ignore his racing hormones—and calm his temper—over the obnoxious woman who clouds his judgment, Jack pulls her in and steals her heart until she finally surrenders. But is he up for the challenge of picking up the pieces of Sarah’s broken heart? Can he carry her out of her rut?
I give it - 4/5
My review - I really enjoyed this story! As you can tell this story is about heartbreak and trying to get through it and not live in a rut for the rest of your life.
J.D really does capture the emotions of a person who is going through heartbreak which makes this story feel real when reading it. The main character Sarah starts off as depressed but who wouldn't be! But she digs herself out of the rut she built herself and becomes a strong woman.
Jack really helps the story by just being the way he is! I love him lol! He really shows you that a loving man does exist and is willing to help you and be there for you.
The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because it took me awhile to get into the story but once I did I loved it. It shows that when you thought you have everything and then it's taken away from you that you don't give up at all! Sarah bravely opens her heart to Jack and shows the reader that it's good to move and in the end you will find that perfect someone for you.
If you've ever been in a long term relationship or going through heartbreak this is the story for you! It will show you that instead of staying in a rut, moving on is the best thing to do and just to never give up.
