Review: Falling for Jillian (Love Under the Big Sky #3) by Kristen Proby




Blurb from Goodreads:
From New York Times bestselling author Kristen Proby comes the third romance in the Love Under the Big Sky series, featuring a veteran struggling with PTSD and the one woman who can help him recover—and learn to love again.

Jillian thought she was a city girl through and through; the fast cars, high fashion, and glamour—she loves it all. But when her ex tells her he’s having a baby with his new wife (after Jillian struggled for years to get pregnant), she hightails it back to Montana to cry on the shoulder of her best friend, Cara.

But in truth, Jillian would rather be comforted by someone else…specifically Zach, Cara’s brother-in-law. Zach is a veteran of the Iraq War who came back to the family ranch to raise his preteen son after the boy’s mother took off. He’s struggling to re-establish a relationship with his son, and warding off the demons of PTSD, which still haunt him. The last thing he needs is bold, brassy Jillian…but why can’t he keep his hands off her?
My Review:
 
Bummer.  I loved the first book in this series, Loving Cara, but the second book in this series, Seducing Lauren, was a very early DNF for me.  Unfortunately, the last and final book in the series took a turn into a trope that more or less ruined the book for me.  While the beginning of the book was great, once the conflict between the two love interests started/happened, I found myself less and less interested in finishing the book.


**SPOILER ALERT**
I think it is hard not to be over the OOPs, I'm pregnant! trope in romance -- it is so overused that it almost makes me DNF a book when it comes up now.  Inevitably, the male love interest will be surprised and/or have some bad reaction when the woman is unexpectedly pregnant. Unfortunately, the trope was so blatant and obvious in this book that it made the better and more unique parts of the book fall flat.
**END SPOILER**

Falling for Jillian comes out tomorrow, January 27, 2015, and you can purchase HERE!
He grips my shoulders in his hands and yanks me against his hard chest and covers my lips with his.  This is no soft, seductive kiss.  It's hard and possessive.  Hungry.  He growls as his arms loop around me and pulls me closer to him.  I open up to him, allowing him inside my mouth to dance and plunder, to take control.

  1. Sorry to hear this didn't work out for you, but I totally understand. I read the first two books and they were just okay so I didn't want to continue. Great review, Eva! :)

I love this trope, sub-genre, setting: My Best Friend's Brother/My Brother's Best Friend

I Love This Trope, Sub-Genre, Setting is a new feature on my blog in which I discuss a trope, sub-genre or setting that I love and tell you about books that are shining examples of said trope, sub-genre or setting.  Feel free to play along and please let me know about your favorite books in this realm and whether you like this trope, sub-genre and/or setting as much as I do! Today I am spotlighting the trope of:  My Best Friend's Brother/My Brother's Best Friend , which I would define as any book where the heroine either has a crush on or falls for her brother's best friend or her best friend's brother. I have to confess that I love this trope in nearly all of its iterations!  I have a younger brother so I never got to crush on any of his friends but it's fun reading about that and it's equally as fun as reading about falling for your best friend's brother -- instant sisters!  I know there are a ton

Today I am spotlighting the setting of:  Libraries and Bookstores , which I would loosely define as any book that largely takes place at a library or bookstore or involves characters that work at a library or bookstore. What could be more lovely to a book lover than a book with characters that also love books?!  I love this mix of genres with this setting -- cozy mystery, contemporary romance, UF, YA, romantic suspense, sci-fi. I know there are a ton of books that I'm missing/haven't read so please let me know! Have you ever read a book set
