Sapphire Falls book five

 

TJ Bennett knows one thing for certain—being in love isn’t for him. Been there, done that, has the scars to prove it.

 

But that’s before he meets colorful, sweet, slightly-kooky Hope Daniels.

 

Hope is only in town temporarily. She simply wants to have a cup of coffee with the father she’s never known. That’s it. She doesn’t need to buy any Father’s Day cards or have a date for any Father-Daughter dances. She just wants to have a conversation with the man who stole her mother’s heart twenty six summers ago in Sapphire Falls.

 

But when her directions lead her to TJ’s house instead, everything becomes a lot more complicated… and a lot more interesting.

 

Because there’s nothing like a big gruff introvert to push this extrovert’s let-me-make-it-all-better buttons.

 

All of TJ’s plans to stay uninvolved and out of her way evaporate quickly and before he knows it, Hope’s got him thinking differently about everything—family, home, heartbreak and maybe, just maybe, the fact that he’s never actually been in love… before now.

I've fallen in love with TJ Bennett! The gruff and tough farmer who is everyone's protector. Hope Daniels comes to town to experience her mother's favorite summer vacation and to meet the father she has never known.   She mistakenly is sent to TJ's house, where he puts his self out to protect everyone, including the crazy woman who showed up on his property. Hope expects nothing from anyone, yet she is the sweetest, most giving person. When TJ and Hope get together, there's magic there.   This is such a warm and sweet story and you can't help but fall in love with them and Sapphire Falls, if you haven't already. To me, they are the perfect couple and this is my new favorite Erin Nicholas book!

Once again Erin Nicholas has pulled at my heart strings within the first two chapters of the book.  Hope going to Sapphire Falls to feel closer and understand her mom a little more was so heartwarming.  She lost her mom suddenly and wanted to walk her in shoes a bit.  When she explained this, it brought tears to my eyes.   TJ and Hope's connection was so entertaining.  It was immediate and hot.  Oh the way she pushed his buttons, one would need a fan.  I smiled quite a bit during those parts.  I loved how they both saw through the outer layers of each other to focus on the real person below and not only accepted them but encouraged it. It was quite fun catching up with TJ's family and friends in this story.  Their camaraderie and banter is humorous.  Loved the brotherly ragging on each other.  The girls all being together was hysterical.  But my favorite part of seeing the other characters were TJ's parents.  They were so classy, wise, loving and welcoming. This was another great installment in the Sapphire fall series.  I absolutely cannot wait for Ty's book.  All the glimpses of his appearances in each book have me very intrigued.

Erin Nicholas continues to amaze as she takes us back to Sapphire Falls.  TJ Bennett is a hot, broody alpha kinda guy who has been screwed over in the past. Hope comes to SF looking for answers to her past. The sparks between these two fly immediately, and it doesn't cool down as the story continues.  I loved how Hope and TJ were complete opposites, but their personalities definitely complimented each other. Oh, and that Hope could get under TJ's  skin so easily, and took great pleasure in it.  Getting Lucky drew me in immediately, kept me laughing, and had me in tears by the end. I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a great contemporary romance

All anyone wants is TJ Bennett to smile and be happy again....... He has accepted his grumpy bachelorhood but when a rainbow mixed with a tornado in the form of Hope mistakenly ends up on TJ's farm things change. From the moment they meet sparks fly and we are taken on a whirlwind journey with all our favorites including the wonderful Kathy Bennett.If you are an Erin Nicholas fan then this is totally worth a read, you will be captivated right from the beginning, you will definitely laugh and some might even cry as we take a trip back to Sapphire Falls with the sinfully sexy TJ Bennett and the funny pixie style Hope Daniels

I am loving this book! Pretty much anything that Erin writes is a hit in my book. Now we are back in Sapphire Falls with Hope and TJ. Between the two of them, they had fantastic chemistry. I can wait to see what's next!

I always look forward to a new Erin Nicholas book and Sapphire Falls especially. Getting Lucky is no exception. Book 5 is TJ's book. Wonderful, grumpy, stoic TJ comes home one day to see a very colorful woman in his yard, with her camper and a Fiat. One look at her and he's immediately attracted but Hope is not TJ's type of woman. She's fun and lighthearted and earnest. She's in to essential oils and healing...and naked yoga. She's trying to find the father she's never known and relive the summer her mother was so nostalgic for. You're going to want Hope to be your best friend. Come revisit the quaint Sapphire Falls town. Reconnect with your favorite characters from the past books. Fall in love with Hope and TJ and remember what it feels like when you first fell in love. Excellent job Erin!

Why oh why can't Sapphire Falls exist in real life? This series by Erin Nicholas just gets better and better with each release. I thought Mason was my favorite guy, then Joe, but TJ might just over take them all. (Sorry to all you ladies that have laid claims on the guys) He is the guy who does anything for anybody, but never asks for anything himself. Hope is the "rainbow and tornado" who shows up on his property and in a matter of 24 hours completely changes his life as he knew it. I really enjoyed getting to know these two characters and how well they fit each other even though they couldn't have been more different in upbringing. I liked catching up with some of the past characters and what is going on with them now. This books was sweet, very sexy, fun loving, and emotional. Everything I love in a contemporary romance. I cannot wait for Ty's story next and the ones to follow. If you haven't started planning your trip to Sapphire Falls, Nebraska you better contact your travel agent!

Well Erin Nicholas has done it again. TJ Bennett thinks he will never fall in love again, it's not for him...until he comes home to find Hope Daniels. Hope is on a mission to follow in her mothers foot steps and experience life like her mother did and in the process try to figure out who her father is. Too bad in this process that TJ has fallen head over hills for Hope. You just can't help but fall in love with the Bennett family, they will take in a complete stranger and make them one of theirs. The Sapphire Fall series just draws you in and you can't help but wanting more... That an of course the hot Bennett brothers!! It's fun watching them drop one by one!

Talk about GETTING LUCKY... THIS was a fantastic book! I have admittedly loved the Sapphire Falls series right from the beginning. Mason stole my heart in that very first book --what can I say, I'm into smart, sexy, slightly nerdy men-- and will always be one of my book boyfriends, BUT... Erin Nicholas really out did herself with TJ and Hope's story. I mean, WOW!! Right from the first paragraph she had my full attention. TJ and Hope had my full attention.  TJ is the oldest Bennett brother and just as tall, dark, sexy, muscular, and HUGE in all the right places as his brothers, but as a self-described grump he uses his surly attitude to keep everyone at arm's length. Especially women. Especially Sapphire Falls women. Not only did his ex break this gorgeous man's heart, she still drags him through her crazy every chance she gets. He is done with crazy. Then in wanders Hope at his farm in her bright yellow Fiat and tiny little camper, and this beautiful woman's free spirit takes his breath away. And down crumble his walls despite himself. Hope Daniels with her pink hair, bangles, and loose, barely-there, free-flowing clothes, and tattoo... who is clearly a hippie... clearly crazy... and just what TJ needs.  Like I said, from the first paragraph I was hooked. Getting Lucky flows so beautifully, includes a heavy dose of all the sexy Bennett's and their friends, the usual humor of siblings and lifelong friends, incredible dialogue, intense sexual attraction, a fresh storyline and delightful new characters I hope to see more of. My only complaint was I tore through it and reached the end too soon. I immediately wanted more. Really. Awesome. Book.  5 stars

How do I love Sapphire Falls like me count the ways..  1) Hot Country Boys 2) Tailgates and bonfires and Booze 3) Two stepping in honky-tonks 4) Sweet treats made even sweeter by the men in Town 5) Close-nit families  I love love love this series by Erin Nicholas.  One of the many things I loved about this book was I felt like I was learning about holistic health teachings while I enjoyed a romance. It has gotten me researching about essential oils and massages to help with some of the stesses in my life. This is not the first time I have learned from Erin's books It Takes Two gave readers and insight into the world of Fibromyalgia.  Getting Lucky gives us the story of TJ and Hope. TJ has been burned by a damsel in distress before and has sworn off love because love only brings pain. Hope is trying to find a way to re-connect with her recently passed mother by living and experiencing her free spirited summer of love that created her.  Hope brings essential oils, massages, naked yoga, and most importantly love that is freely given with nothing needed in return to TJ life.  TJ shows Hope that it is ok to need people and plant roots especially with a hot farmer like him! One of my favorite lines in the books holds true to the entire series. "Boys in Sapphire Falls learn to country swing and two-step early on because it's the best way to get a girl up against you when you're too young to have a truck." I can't wait to read more about this wonderful Town!

I absolutely loved the book "Getting Lucky" which is the fifth book in the Sapphire Falls series by Erin Nicholas. I truly loved Hope as she was a true heroine. She had such a deep emotional understanding of herself which made her truly connect with other people. I adored the connection between her and TJ. Hope and TJ relationship was based on being true to yourself but allowing yourself to trust another person to find true love.

There is just something magical about Sapphire Falls! In Getting Lucky (book 5) we finally get to learn about the ever grumpy T.J. Bennett. A man who's been completely jaded by love but still has a huge heart and loves his family and friends unconditionally albeit in his own way. We are also introduced to Hope Daniels. A somewhat free spirit, searching for a missing puzzle piece to her life that may lie in Sapphire Falls. Erin has proved again why her books are so special. The relationship that builds between T.J. and Hope is so special and real. Just because two people were raised under different circumstances, and may seem like they would have nothing in common doesn't mean that they can't have that special connection and understanding about each other. Erin draws inspiration for her characters from so many places so each on is completely different but still have that wonderful something that makes you feel like you've known them forever. Hope doesn't follow traditional norms. She uses essential oils to help everything from relaxation to better sleep. (I personally LOVE that Erin included oils as i use them in my everyday life and swear by them so Hope is now one of my favorites) I am a city girl through and through. Erin however makes me wish that I had grown up in a town like Sapphire Falls, where love is exciting, messy and most importantly real!

It’s no surprise that I gush about Erin Nicholas. She has yet to write a book that I don’t completely love. She makes me want to pack up all my belongings and move to a small town. Specifically Sapphire Falls. I love that amazing place and I will promise you, if I could, I would move there. Getting Lucky is book 5 in the Sapphire Falls series. It follows the life of grumpy, gruff and totally sexy TJ Bennett.  TJ hasn’t been so lucky in the love department. He’s got the divorce papers to show for it. He is done with love. It won’t cause him anything but drama and he just doesn’t have the time. He was always willing to help out a woman in need, just ask his ex-wife, but now he tries to avoid it all. How was he supposed to avoid it when it was sitting on his front lawn? Hope Daniels just wants to be happy.  Go with the flow, be free, have fun. She wants to follow in her mother’s footsteps. After losing her mother, she decided to take a summer and just live life like her mother did. She could never forget the stories of her spending the best summer of her life in Sapphire Falls. She also couldn’t ignore the picture of her mom with two men….one of whom just had to be her father. So she packed up and left Sedona for a little town in Nebraska hoping she would meet the man that she shared her biology with. She wasn’t looking for a dad. She didn’t need that. She just wanted to meet him. To know who he was. But a mistake landed her on TJ’s farm.  TJ and Hope’s  chemistry was undeniable even though TJ wanted to deny it. He has more will power than any man, I’m convinced! A big hot farmer and a little pixie hippie are a perfect match in Getting Lucky. Hope makes TJ see that he is wanted, just by being him. And TJ helps Hope understand that sticking around and having people love her and depend on her isn’t such a bad thing. I didn’t know it was possible to keep loving all the men from Sapphire Falls like I do, but I fall in love over and over again with each visit. Several of my favorite men make an appearance in Getting Lucky and I swoon all over again. But TJ is just……incredible! WOW! There are many moments of his that stick out to me, but this has to be my favorite: “I don’t dance,” he told her. Her smile fell, and TJ wasn’t sure the last time he’d an actual loss when some stopped smiling. “But to show you just how far gone I am here,” he said, moving closer. “I’m going to tonight.”  SWOON! How can you NOT swoon over a man like that!? Holy hotness! I love him. You’ll get grumpy-hot man, free spirit –loving woman, friends, family, nosey-ness, SEXINESS, love, forever, essential oils, magic and (in my opinion) the hottest Erin Nicholas scene ever written in this one!  Happy reading!!

Welcome back to Sapphire Falls. This is a wonderful series by Erin Nicholas. Sapphire Falls is a special place where magical things happen. TJ is a man who has been burned in the past and not looking for a future relationship. Always there to help his family and friends out and content with his life (or so he thinks). Hope is a woman who recently lost her mom. Her mom was a woman who lived in the moment and enjoyed life. She always told Hope her best memories were from the time she spent her summer in Sapphire Falls. Hope decides it's time to try and live in the moment for one summer just like her mom and the first place she wants to visit is Sapphire Falls. Especially after hearing for years how it was her mother's favorite place. When she arrives, things get a little mixed up and she winds up parked in front of TJ's house. TJ wakes up to find a car and camper in his driveway with a woman laying on the hood of her car. His first thought is how to get her off his property. I really enjoyed getting to know TJ and Hope and following their story. Erin has done such a wonderful job with this series and all of the characters involved. You can just picture yourself in Sapphire Falls and feel like you know everyone there. This story has humor, sentiment, and hotness. It is a book I couldn't put down and am so happy I picked up. If you are a fan of Erin Nicholas, you already know this is a must read, but if you have never read her books, this series is a great place to start. I guarantee that once you read one of her books, you will be hooked. I highly recommend this book.

Once again, this author does not fail to entertain. This is quite the love story, as the main character takes a self-discovery tour into what is love. This whole series is great and I look forward to the next one coming out next month.

I feel like I start every Sapphire Falls review this way, but I want to live in Sapphire Falls and be friends with these people. TJ and Hope were such a great couple to get to know and watch fall in love. They have an instant connection when she rolls into town retracing her mother's footsteps from twenty six years earlier. I wanted to be Hope when I was in my twenties. She was raised as a free spirit and her mother was very into essential oils. That's one thing that truly fascinated me with Hope.....the way she used oils and reflexology to take care of so many different things. I loved being able to see Travis and Tucker give it back to TJ the way he gave it to them when they were falling in love. I LOVED this whole story and the chemistry between the two of them. I would highly recommend it to anyone.

This series just keeps getting better! Have loved all of those Bennett boys but TJ just may be my favorite! Well done!

I loved this story! The Sapphire Falls series just keeps getting better and better! TJ is like a grumpy bear with a hurt shoulder. The last thing he wants is to find Hope (his very own Goldilocks with pink/blue steaks in her hair) on his farm. She's wild, free spirited and nothing like his normal type. But he can't seem to look away and he's soon rethinking how he looks at life...and love.

It just keeps getting better and better. I thought I had reached the top, as far as the city and country boys of Sapphire Falls goes but I was wrong. TJ Bennett is now at the top of that list. As grumpy as he can be, he is the ultimate country boy. The conversations he's had with himself, in his head, are hilarious! He's very intense in EVERYTHING he does. From the moment he and Hope met, things just started falling into place. She was a little crazy and he didn't want crazy anymore. He did fight it but to no avail. She's got amazing intuition. She just knew things and had TJ pegged from the start. Things were going great. Some exciting events happened and she got spooked. Then she left and he let her go. Getting lucky is book 5 in the Sapphire Falls series and without a doubt, my favorite so far. I laughed, a lot, had a few sad moments, a few scorching HOT moments and still wished Sapphire Falls were a real place on the map. I can't wait for the next book from this fabulous and very talented author. Erin Nicholas, you are a rock star! Received a copy in exchange for an honest review.

This is the fifth book in the Sapphire Falls series from one of my all time favourite authors. This book really has to be marked as one of my favourites. In this book you will most certainly lose your heart to both TJ and Hope. They are an amazing couple, strong independent and vulnerable to each other in the best possible way. This story grips you from the beginning, the essence of Hope, her unique outlook on life will draw you in and make you want to climb into the book so she can become your best friend. TJ is a gruff but caring man, he doesn't want to be drawn to her but he is, TJ's heart is very big and beautiful, some thing he doesn't feel comfortable sharing with any one other than his family but Hope coaxes him out of his gruff shell with her. The characters Erin Nicholas has written are heartwarming but also people you want to actively seek out to ensure you have awesome people like this in your life. The way the story develops and engages you as a reader is so unique to the type of writer Erin is. She is the epitome of a contemporary romance writer but she adds such a twist of fun and laughter in her books. She writes amazing stories but they are not too heavy, they always leave you wanting to read more in the best possible way! If you have not read this series or any other book by Erin Nicholas then you definitely should. She is an author you will wish you found sooner and find yourself devouring her books from the first chapter. Enjoy, I definitely did
