|Can you fall in ♥ with someone you’ve never met?
Summer is nearly over and Keeley is about to start her senior year when disaster strikes: she picks up the wrong cell phone by mistake. 😞 Just her luck that it belongs to Talon, a totally arrogant jock 🏈 who’s just left for football camp—with her phone. Keeley doesn’t know him, but they’ll need to rely on each other to forward their messages for an entire week.
Talon is so full of himself, but Keeley quickly discovers he’s funny, too—at least his texts are. 😅 And he listens to Keeley—which is more than anyone else does. Texting Talon, she can be more than just the quiet twin sister of a popular boy. Texting Talon, she can be the outgoing person she’s always wanted to be. Soon the two are falling for each other, hard.
But when true identities are revealed and secrets are exposed, will Keeley’s feelings stay the same?

|February 20th 2016|
|Officer John O’Connor is giving up on life after a terrible accident. His family are at their wits end when he refuses any kind of therapy. The only thing keeping him sane is his dreams of a beautiful woman he pulled in for a traffic violation months before.

When she is hired by Nightingale’s personal care and physical therapy, she’s ecstatic but she’s shocked when her boss asks her to take on a new patient. Shocked because the patient is her boss’s nephew and he’s not exactly keen on therapy. He’s also the cop who’s been heating up her dreams.
As Stephanie helps John get back on his feet, they grow closer, but someone is out to hurt Stephanie, or worse. After multiple attempts on her life, John’s family tries to figure out who’s after the woman he loves and stop them before it’s too late.
|Nice plotline but the content is really simply too much of everything. Too sweet – too over-the-top – too many characters – too cliché – I think the author wanted too much at the same time ….

|The Debt #3|
|November 9th 2017|
The only thing that stands in the way of my revenge is her.
The lying scheming daughter of the man who killed my parents. She has the secrets I need to bring down her father.
And I’ll do anything to get them. I will lie to her. Steal from her. Use her.
It helps that our chemistry is explosive.
What I’m not expecting is for her to be so sweet. And so strong.
After so many years of lying and hiding, I finally have a place to call home. With people I can call a family. The Paintbrush Inn is my life now, and I won’t let anyone ruin it.
When sexy and world-weary Simon checks in to the Inn, I never expect him to glance my way. I’ve spent my whole life blending into the background. Being overlooked and ignored. It’s been helpful, even though it’s lonely. And he’s way out of my league.
But our attraction is powerful. Undeniable.
Because I can’t let anyone close. If the secrets I keep were to be revealed, my whole life would be destroyed. But something about Simon makes me break all my own rules. I’m letting him in to my home, my body, my life, never expecting he has his own secrets.
His own lies.
When the truth comes out, we’ll both be ruined.
|Reading Ruin You by Molly O’Keefe was not my first rodeo with this author but I have to admit I had no Idea it was already the third book in this series called “The Debt”. Which proofs that even though the characters are connected it is easy to read as a standalone.
Obviously I like the writing style of this author or I would not have selected this book. As I already read 4 or 5 books from her.
But now lets go to the core of my thoughts and they are and honestly they are widely spread for once.
First of all and dear to my heart : The setting … I love SF can not help it so I felt right at home. But when it came to the setting of the Paintbrush inn I could not help myself and my mind went to a place I know of that I love dearly. Everything about this Paintbrush Inn reminded me of the herb farm in Seattle right down to the food (just google it and check if you agree). So my mind already had the perfect setting for the plot
Second : And I have to admit dear author it took me a moment or two until I connected the dots. I loved the movies (and I mean the older ones not the one from 2017) dearly. So ones my mind finally found what it reminded me of the name Simon was almost TO obvious #laughing. Ok I guess not everybody can follow my line of thoughts here so I would like to whisper a line to give a hint “the Saint” …. Clearly its not THAT story but please admit there are some parallels at least I found them enough to be reminded.
And with all these warm feelings about the story I felt so far it was kind of hard for me to realize one thing. As the story went on I knew this thing there between the leads had to blow up at one point. Hey no spoiler here right ? But could I feel that the characters had enough going for them that their relationship would survive this ? And when I asked myself that question I noticed something strange.
It did not feel like an Insta love what they had. But it also did not feel like love to me. It felt like need and lust like a web of betrayal that can only be survived because both are equal partners in the same yet different crime. The story moved into the background for me at that point and I only wondered how this situation would be solved.
And I have to be honest for me it wasn’t solved. The story has ended but until the final end I am still not convinced that Simon and Penny were really in love. They were in lust for sure and they had something but even there I am not sure if they had chemistry or just a connection in their past that links them together.
Still I like the writing of this author and I will always pick up a book from her if the blurb appeals to me.
