Sapphire Falls, book seven

Bryan Murray always planned to return to Sapphire Falls and settle down with Tessa Sheridan. Tessa is sweet, kind, beautiful and planning to live in Sapphire Falls forever. Best of all, she’s loved him since kindergarten. He just didn't expect it to all happen like this. But a not-so-little tumble down a mountain while biking has turned his life upside down and landed him back in his hometown earlier than he’d planned. At least Tessa is the same girl who's just been waiting for him to come home.

Tessa has been saving herself for Bryan in every way. And dreaming about an exciting life. Somewhere other than Sapphire Falls. But now Bryan’s messing up all of her plans. Not only has he moved home, but he’s decided to go from the hot, sexy playboy of her fantasies to a sweet, romantic boyfriend type. What’s a girl gotta do to have an adventure or two? And some hot erotic-romance-novel-worthy sex along the way? She’s going to have to make it happen for herself. Which means leaving Sapphire Falls. Which means avoiding falling in love. All while being romanced by the only man who’s ever had her heart.

This was such a touching story about following your dreams. Bryan and Tess will melt your heart and motivate you accomplish your goals. I loved everything about this book. From having a hidden desire to finally admitting that you're head over heels in love with someone. This is another MUST READ from the Sapphire Falls collection.

On my seventh visit to Sapphire Falls, I get to meet Bryan and Tessa. Oh, how I love Bryan and Tessa. They have been friends forever, Tessa has always wanted more, now that Bryan wants a romance, he needs to work for it. Through their story, they both grow so much and find themselves falling in love for all the right reasons. Bryan will melt your heart too, what he does to prove his love to Tessa. It was great to catch up with old friends of Sapphire Falls and all of planning of the annual festival. Sapphire Falls is peaceful, comfortable and happy, no wonder everyone wants to stay. Love Erin Nicholas, she writes of real characters that are sweet, sexy and fun. Plus, she always has some kind of food in her story, Hershey Almond Kisses are my favorite too!!

Welcome back to Sapphire Falls. Meet Bryan Murray who is best friends with Ty Bennett and has lived in Sapphire Falls all his life. Meet Tessa Sheridan, a woman who has been in love with Bryan ever since she was a little girl and has always been there believing in him and supporting him. Bryan has always felt that Tessa was his and once he made something of himself, Tessa would be there to share it with him. The only problem is that Bryan has never given her any indication that that was his plan. Tessa has had enough and is finally done waiting for Bryan. Too many years have been wasted waiting for him to see what is right in front of his eyes. The last straw was when he intervened and scared off a prospective date of hers. Tessa confronts Bryan publicly and lets him know that it is none of his business who she dates and the sparks start flying. The question is: has Bryan waited too long to make a move? Has Tessa totally given up on him and moved on? Can they finally come together, or is it a case of too little too late? This story is sweet, romantic, witty and hysterically funny. I laughed out loud more than once. The very talented Erin Nicholas has delivered another winner in the Sapphire Falls series. I thoroughly enjoyed Bryan and Tessa's story. This book and all of the books in this series are definite one clicks. You won’t be able to put them down once you start reading them and will fall more in love with Sapphire Falls with each book. I highly recommend this book and the entire series.

Getting His Way is Brian and Tessa's story. We met Brian in Getting Over it and I wondered how his story would unfold.....I don't want to give too much away, suffice it to say Brian was injured, he returns to Sapphire Falls to heal and to make a new life for himself that includes Tessa. The issue is that Tessa has also made plans and one of her plans is to leave Sapphire Falls. Will they be 2 ships that pass in the night? You have to read it to find out and the journey is so much fun paved with the Blue Brigade, the old men at the diner, Erotic Research, a town with a cast of characters with dialogue that will have you laughing at loud and will elicit a lot of AHHHSSSS. I love the introspection that Brian goes thru, and Tessa's realization "that finding a spot in the world that could only be appreciated by getting to it all by herself". I love that line.....and thought good for her!!! This book was a pleasure to read.

Tessa has loved Bryan since kindergarten. Bryan has always known that Tessa would be there for him, to help him, to guide him, and to love him. Now he's ready to pursue a romantic relationship with Tessa and....what? Tessa doesn't want him? How is that even possible? Bryan is convinced that Tessa still wants him and he sets out to show her that they can be together and that he is the man for her. But Tessa has new dreams. She wants to run. She wants to see the world. And Bryan has already done that. Can he show her that she can see the world and still have the relationship that he knows they are meant to have? Erin Nicholas has written another fantastic story in Sapphire Falls. You get to hear from so many of your favorite SF citizens, stop by their local hangouts and feel the love that she writes about so amazingly. And the quilting scene? You won't be able to wipe that smile off your face! I hope you enjoy Getting His Way as much as I did!

Getting His Way is book #7 in the amazing Sapphire Falls series. Erin has created a whole community of wonderfully crazy and funny and warm hearted people and I love visiting them with every book I read in this series. One of the biggest events in the town is the annual Festival and Tessa is knee deep in organizing and running the event. She is the town sweetheart who everyone knows they can depend on and who will do anything for anyone. She loves her little town but she wants to spread her wings and see the world. Bryan has returned to Sapphire Falls after an unfortunate accident cut short his competitive running career. He did not let the accident deter him at all…he is still confident and strong and oh so sexy. He and Tessa have been “dancing” around each other for years but have never really expressed their feelings for each other. Bryan is ready to settle down but now Tessa wants to leave and follow her dreams. Everyone knows Tessa and Bryan belong with each other but it takes the town festival and some soul searching on both their parts to make it happen. There are many funny moments in this book courtesy of the Blue Brigade, the Lawn Yawn and the book club reading selections. You will find yourself laughing out loud. I loved this book from beginning to end and I am sure you will too. Enjoy your visit to Sapphire Falls.. but beware you may not want to leave. Disclaimer: I was gifted an advance copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

I'm so glad to be back in Sapphire Falls! Tess is an amazing, brilliant, successful woman. She is the main structure of Sapphire Falls. She helps everyone and doesn't want a thank you in return, she has been pining over a guy since kindergarten but hasn't told him yet. Bryan is back in town and helping out with the bar. Tess has gotten a passion for something and has had an offer to relocate for a bit. Will she go or stay back at home?

I've been waiting for Bryan's story for what seems like forever but Erin Nicholas definitely made the wait worth it!! After a devastating injury had Bryan Murray returning to Sapphire Falls, he's known he's ready to settle down and start the next phase of his life. Now that he's ready though, the woman who he thought would be waiting for him may have some plans of her own. Without him! Tessa has loved Bryan for most of her life. She was willing to wait for him to get over his wandering ways but she's tired of waiting. Bryan's been back in Sapphire Falls for over a year and nothing has changed so Tessa decides to change her life for herself. Now Bryan wants to play the romantic boyfriend and that's the last thing Tessa wants in her life. Will these two ever get on the same page at the same time???? These two have to be one of my favorite couples in Sapphire Falls. Don't miss this one - I highly recommend it!

Where do I start with this book. First off, I loved it! While you have the hot romance in there, you have a heroine who's truly out finding herself. She's always been a behind the scenes kinda girl, and she definitely steps out of that persona in this book. There were parts in this book that made my heart break a little for Bryan, and there were parts in this book that had me cracking up. This book goes above and beyond what I was hoping. A definite must read!!

If I had to choose one word to best describe Getting His Way it would be unexpected. But….unexpected in the most INCREDIBLE way! Book 7 in the Sapphire Falls series by Erin Nicholas does not disappoint. Of course, I never expected it to. Erin has a way of writing a story that will suck you in from the very first word and not let you go until long after reading it. Bryan and Tessa’s love story was no exception to that. I’ve been waiting to get my hands on Bryan since I met him in Getting Over It and he was most definitely worth the wait! I thought I knew how this book would go, but it surprised me over and over…..hence the unexpected! ;) Bryan Murray is one hot man. Confident, cocky, funny, strong, sexy and determined. To say I love him is an understatement. His arrogance had me rolling my eyes, laughing my butt off and swooning all at the same time! How is that even possible? He didn’t let his accident and injury slow him down one bit and maybe that’s why I fell for him the way I did. Tessa Sheridan is the girl I wish I was. Loving, happy, feisty, independent and everyone’s friend. She set her sights on her dream and no one was going to stop her….not even Bryan. And I loved her so much for that! Bryan and Tess were simply explosive. They belonged together and you could see it from the first page. As much as I wanted to punch him for keeping poor Tess in the “friend zone”, I wanted to just squeeze and kiss him for encouraging her to follow her dreams. Tess handled Bryan so well I wanted to give her a high five. No one could do it better than she could. She didn’t settle for less than everything she and it made the book that much hotter! In all honesty, I couldn’t have loved this book more! Happy reading!

Erin has another great hit with Getting His Way. With each book she writes in this series, you get drawn further into the town of Sapphire Falls. Bryan Murray is back in Sapphire Falls earlier than he planned, after having a life changing accident. The one positive in this situation is Tessa Sheridan....sweet, kind, lovable Tessa. Since life has changed Bryan's plans, he is now ready to settle down with Tessa. Tessa has loved Bryan since kindergarten. She's been waiting for him to come get her and travel, have some life adventures. Bryan is ready to settle down, to give her romance and flowers, but she's waiting for him to give her something spicier in the bedroom. So her plan is not to fall in love with Bryan again, the only man she's ever loved, to create her own adventures. Bryan learns a lot about Tessa since he's back... And somethings shock him. Bryan and Tessa have a wonderful chemistry! I loved this book as well as the rest of the Sapphire Falls series! I can't wait until the next one.

Oh my Goodness! Those Bennett brothers aren't the only swoon worthy guys in Sapphire Falls. Look out for Bryan Murray! Bryan has spent his life doing the things he wanted, the way he wanted, and now that he is back home in Sapphire Falls he has decided it is time to finally settle down with Tess Sheridan. After all, she has been in love with him since they were five. There is a slight problem though. He didn't check with Tess first and she has other plans for her life, that no longer include him or Sapphire Falls. She has already spent way too much time devoted to him and it's time to do things her way now. This is such a fun story, that you feel like you are right there with the rest of Sapphire Falls as these two find out things aren't what they thought they were. So grab a copy and sit back and enjoy the latest from Erin Nicholas and everyone's favorite little town, Sapphire Falls

Going back to visit Sapphire Falls makes me feel super happy. I love the world that Erin created and I love visiting old friends in each new book. I loved Tessa and Bryan! I loved that Tessa made Bryan work to win her over instead of just giving in to him. “It’s okay,” he said, giving her a big, friendly smile. “I’m totally fine coming after you. You deserve that. After all, you’ve been there for me all this time.” She shook her head again. “You do not need to do that.” “Oh yeah, I do. After everything you’ve done to show me how you feel and make me feel special, I definitely do.” Besides it being a love story it was a story of Tessa finding herself. This book is sweet, funny and sexy! It is a wonderful addition to the Sapphire Falls series and you don't want to miss it!

We first met Bryan in Ty's book and get to know him a little more in Caitlyn and Levi's story. He is such a well rounded man who perseveres despite all the injuries and accidents he has gone through. He has remained positive and determined to not let his injuries define him. And as we read his story, we see it is because of Tessa. She is a phenomenal woman, always busy doing for others. regardless if it is due to her job. That is simply how she is. She and Bryan are perfect together in that regard. They want what is best for others, encourage them and do all they can for others' happiness. That being said, there were a couple of times that I was frustrated with Bryan and his ego. But I loved Tessa's reaction to him during those times. She definitely kept him on his toes. And when he finally saw the real her and knew her, their story was pure magic. And the ending...that is the stuff happily ever afters are made out of.

I always love visiting Sapphire Falls, and this latest friends to lovers story was an overall enjoyable read. Bryan and Tessa have known each other since children, and in fact, have known that they would end up together. Except that Tessa got tired of waiting for Bryan, and now he's got his work cut out for him to convince her that the time is finally right for them. I really liked both of their characters. Bryan is a very friendly, sociable, conscientious man, if a little clueless where Tessa is concerned. He knows she's had a crush on him forever, but it never occurred to him that he should make more of an effort to show her how much he's appreciated the care and concern she's showered on him until he learns that she plans to leave town. He's overcome a lot of adversity with the deep seated knowledge that Tessa would always be there for him. And she was there for him, no doubt, but now she needs to take some time to do things for herself. I loved that Tessa is a runner, and I really appreciated the details of her journey in that regard, because I am a runner myself, and I know how much effort and hard work goes into preparing for races. Because of this, there is a scene near the end of the story, that disappointed me greatly. Readers who are not athletes probably won't take any notice of it, but it brought the book down for me. There are some great scenes with Bryan, Tessa, and the rest of the Sapphire Falls gang, and lots of laugh out loud moments. There is a cute shout out to Rhian Cahill's book Erotic Research which made me totally want to pick it up too. Bryan and Tessa have some great chemistry between them, and while this book had less sexy scenes than some of the other stories in this series, they definitely got onto the same page by the end. Fans of the series will definitely enjoy picking this one up, it's a lighthearted romantic and sexy read. 3.5 stars.

Another wonderful instalment in Erin Nicholas' Sapphire Falls series. In a small town when you've been in love with someone since kindergarten it's hard to hide that fact from anyone. It's even harder to convince anyone you've changed your mind and decided you're over the person. But that's what Tessa plans to do. Brian, the subject of her long term affection has other plans. He's finally feels ready to settle down and make a life with Tessa since he's recovered from his life changing injury enough to not be a burden to her. Who will win their battle of wills and what lengths will they have to go to to do so? Buy this book today to find out! You'll love it!

Ah Tessa and Bryan's book! Tessa has been waiting for Bryan to come back to Sapphire Falls to stay it seems like for years. She has been in love with him since she knew what love was. Bryan has always known about Tessa's love for him and always assumed she would be around when he decided it was time to come home for good. Only problem with this is that Tessa has realized, thanks to Bryan's blogs, that she doesn't want to settle down right now. She wants to run and see the world while doing it. So while Bryan is ready to stay, she is ready to go. Can Bryan convince her that she can have the best of everything with him? Or has he kept Tessa waiting too long?

I was thrilled to be visiting Sapphire Falls again with Erin Nicholas' latest release, Getting His Way. Once again, this author writes a sexy love story that I could not stop reading as Bryan and Tessa take their friendship to the next level. Their road to happily ever after was not easy but it sure was fun watching them get there. I loved how this author added humor throughout the story and I laughed so hard especially at Bryan's expense. Bryan was sexy, cocky and finally ready to be romantic and sweet with Tessa but she wants him to be naughty instead. I loved Tessa who was nice and sweet to those around her yet strong and not a pushover despite years of being in love with Bryan. I really enjoyed seeing Bryan work hard to win her over. I loved seeing everyone again in Sapphire Falls and looking forward to more in this fantastic series.

I am so excited to be back in Sapphire Falls, now I need to go read what trouble Erin Nicholas and her characters are stirring up. Bryan Murray has known Tessa from childhood. He had known she had deep feelings toward him and to be honest he thought she was sweet to care. It wasn’t until he discovered she was about to leave town did Bryan get a clue. I absolutely enjoyed Bryan, but Erin Nicholas did you have to make his so clueless. *grins* Tessa Sheridan is just plan out tried on waiting for Bryan Murray to take notice! That man is as blind as a bat when it comes to seeing what is right in front of him. She was going to move on. Tessa felt the years wasted was enough. I loved Tessa as much as I loved Hope in Getting Lucky. Tessa and Bryan are ideal for each other. Both in love with their home town and the people who live there. It takes a little while for Bryan to take his head out of the sand, but man when he does he knows exactly what to do to get Tessa to purr. Can Bryan turn things around and convince Tessa to stay and make a future with him? I LOVED that Tessa made Bryan work for his reward Tessa waited a long while for this man. The town folk only added to the fun and heart to Brynn and Tessa’s story. They helped Bryan and Tessa without over shadowing them. The plot was written so brilliantly, it was full of character’s that even with their faults I found myself enjoying them. Steamy moments that keep things interesting and moments that just touched my heart.Thank you Erin Nicholas for not using Bryan’s health issue as a handicap. The way Ms. Nicholas wrote it only for me made him stronger even though he needed a slap upside the head (Gibbs style). The 7th book in the Sapphire Falls Series Getting His Way is a must read as is this whole series.

I am a die hard Erin Nicholas fan! I can read and re read any of her books. She has this way of writing where you forget you are reading. You feel as if you are there living in her books hanging out with her characters. Getting His Way is the newest book in the Sapphire Falls series. Erin had me laughing, crying, and loving with this book! I promise you will love Brian and Tessa, that you will want to move to Sapphire falls and that you will love Erin Nicholas' work! You will not be disappointed!

Sapphire Falls. Such a wonderful place to visit...a place where you feel at home and like you are part of the family. The latest book in the series takes you back to visit old friends and introduce you to new ones. I say this every time but each book in the series is better than the last. Tessa and Bryan. Tessa has been in love with Bryan for most of her life. Bryan knew how she felt but he waited to act on it. When he started meddling in her dating life, Tessa had had enough. Bryan was back home in Sapphire Falls to rehab and start a new life after a bad accident left him learning to walk again. He felt if he waited until he was almost back to normal to woo Tessa that life would fall into place...after all she has loved him forever. Tessa has other plans. She wants to do things and see places. And she's not waiting around for Bryan to make up his mind...she's ready to move on. A great friends to lovers book. I am so glad Erin Nicholas didn't make Tess a weak character. She let her be herself and not to give up every hope and dream to fall at a man's feet. Loved this book. Love the characters. She writes with such emotion and depth that the characters feel like real people you know in your everyday life. HERE's to hoping and wishing there are more to come!

I consider myself a charter member of the Erin Nicholas auto buys and LOVE everything she has written. One of the things that I love most about Erin Nicholas stories is that they are all uniquely different and completely relatable. I often compare myself to her heroines or my life experiences with her stories. Sometimes, however, one of her stories hits me in the gut - it speaks to me in a way that makes me feel like Erin Nicholas has written a story especially for me. Getting His Way is one of those stories. Within this sexy love story in Sapphire Falls we get to witness a wonderful example of self-discovery and empowerment in Tessa. I finished this story feeling optimistic and driven to find my *mountain top*. Another aspect of this story that I truly appreciated was the author's approach to the hero's partial spinal cord injury. We knew going into this story Bryan's history and about his injury. Often times that is the driving force in the plot of other stories. Was it an issue? Sure, but not in the way you might imagine. Bryan didn't let his injury deter him in his pursuit of Tessa and it didn't make Tessa love him any less. Erin Nicholas treated the injury like a physical trait versus the conflict between the two characters. I think that was awesome!! And with all Erin Nicholas stories, Getting His Way is full of humor, fun and some very *hot* sexy scenes. I have absolutely fallen in love with her voice and find that any time I read one of her stories that it flows smoothly for me. It was a wonderful addition to the Sapphire Falls series! I highly recommend this book as well as all the other in the series.

Awesome story just like entire Sapphire Falls series (11 stories in all - 7 books and 4 novellas). Erin hit another homerun with Bryan and Tessa's story. Tessa trying to find her own way after waiting and loving Bryan for 22 years and Bryan trying to understand why Tessa isn't falling into his arms now that he has finally decided he was ready to love Tessa. Reading how they worked through all the issues were entertaining and heartbreaking. Throwing in the entire town and the summer festival just added to the chaos! The beer pong contest was my favorite idea!

Admittedly I LOVE the Sapphire Falls series by Erin Nicholas, but I have to say I've just been totally WOW'd by GETTING HIS WAY! I did not want to put it down!!! The fact I was trying to read it during a crazy time for me meant I had to repeatedly put it down, but I was stealing time with Tessa and Bryan any time I had a few minutes. Chapter by chapter, and sometimes paragraph by paragraph if that's all I could sneak in, lol. One big difference in Getting His Way and other Sapphire Falls books, for me anyway, was I was more focused on the female lead... Tessa... than I was the hunky male lead, Bryan. Believe me, Bryan was drool worthy, witty, charming, romantic, confident and sexy with just the right touch of humble to make him excellent book boyfriend material. But Tessa was inspiring, surprising, sassy, self-motivated, kind, sweet, curvy, beautiful, and confidently in charge of her own life. She knew what she wanted and didn't shy away from going for it... or asking for it... or demanding it... when the occasion called for it. EN took a girl who'd seemed shy in the background of earlier books and proved her to be a force to be reckoned with. Poor Bryan didn't know which way was up or down for a while there as Tessa blew to pieces all his preconceptions of the girl he'd left waiting. This story was fantastic! As always a comical blend of Sapphire Falls characters to bring balance and lots of humor along with a warm, fuzzy, small town feel. And a steam with just the right amount of dirty talk mixed in with all the sigh-worthy sweet romance. Great read from the first page to the last! 4.5 stars
