Summer is quickly coming to a close and while I haven’t done as much reading as I would have liked I am still pretty proud of my reading so far this year. For my 13th book read in 2019 I picked up a friend’s new release! I was so excited to get this in mail and but even more excited to read it. My friend Tara September released Jesse’s Girl this summer and I have to tell you, it really is the perfect summer read! I was able to enjoy her new book outside in the beautiful Colorado mountains…perfect!

Jesse’s Girl by Tara September
Successful Texas lawyer, Reade Walker, curses that damn song every time it plays, all too aware of the irony of its lyrics. After all, he has been secretly and painfully enamored with Jesse’s girl, Gwen, for nearly a decade. It was love at first sight for him, but sadly she’s not his girl. She belongs to the one man who betrayed him and knows Reade’s hidden family secret. Yet Reade can’t seem to love anyone except the one woman he can’t have. Or can he make her mine?
When Gwen Clark’s senator husband runs off with his intern and all their money, the ensuing scandal turns her life upside down. Deserted, penniless and desperate to provide for her six-year-old daughter, Gwen has no one to turn to but Reade Walker. The one man her heart desperately wants, but her pride dreads having to ask for help. Despite welcoming them into his home, it seems like Reade can barely stand being in the same room with her anymore, let alone under the same roof–in the same bedroom. But Gwen is determined to get her life back on track. It is past time to rediscover her own dreams…if only she can keep her aching heart from breaking all over again.
My Review of Jesse’s Girl
I am not a big romance only reader. I like a good chic lit with a side of romance and thrill so this was a bit of a different choice for me but knowing Tara I was not surprised at how much I really enjoyed it. This book was a fast read for me because I could not put it down. I loved the triangle of love and lust and was excited to know more about each character in the book.
I appreciated the way Tara included so much dialogue, made me feel like I was right there with the characters in the book. Having the backstory of Reade and Gwen had me really pushing for Reade to whisk Gwen into his arms from the moment I started the book. I loved this chemistry.
There were some steamy parts of this book (wink wink) but clean steam. HA! I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a great love story that will have you hooked until the very end of the book. Oh and the surprise ending…PERFECT! Twists and turns to grip you even harder!
Well there you have it – lucky number 13 in the books! Please support my buddy Tara by purchasing her book today. I know you will love it and it truly is a perfect book to add to any beach or vacation bag! I am excited for what is next on my reading list.
