Animals aren’t the only thing that need rescuing when a sexy veterinarian encounters a hot-headed attorney…
Read an Excerpt:
Perfectly content saving animals at her clinic in a charming but run-down neighborhood, veterinarian Ellie Blevins slams into new landlord, Jackson Kincaid, who plans to turn her beloved block of buildings into condos.
Intrigued by Ellie, hot-shot defense attorney Jackson gives her one month to convince him not to put his gentrification plans into progress. Attraction soon sizzles between them, but when Jackson makes his desires known, Ellie’s vulnerable heart doesn’t know what to think.
She wants to trust the sinfully handsome Jackson, just as he wants to gain her trust, but finding their way to love isn’t easy when her traumatic past and his criminal clients could sabotage their relationship for good.
Can the enchanting veterinarian and the brooding attorney fight the demons from the past…and build a new future?
“I want to be the only one who gets that soft, intimate ‘Hey’ from you.”
What? “I’m confused,” she said quietly.
“I’m not,” he said. “I like the way you look, your gorgeous skin, that cute break in your nose, although I doubt I’d like the way you broke it.”
No, he absolutely would not, she thought, sucking in a breath.
“I like the way you talk to your dogs, the way when you say ‘Hi’ to people you make every single one of them feel special. I fucking love the way your hazel eyes get darker when you’re fighting with me, the confusion in your face when I catch you off guard. You’ve got a fucking fantastic body, and that’s only from seeing you in your scrubs and your sexy yoga pants and I bet I’d like what’s hidden underneath. I like the way your soft voice hits me, the way you smile at everything, except when you’re pissed, which I might like even more. I don’t want the month to learn why a bunch of buildings are worth saving, I want to spend the month getting to know you. Still confused?”
Stunned was more like it. He liked her in her yoga pants? Her nose that was so far from model perfect she could not even go there?
“Ellie? Are you still confused?”
“No?” she squeaked out, but it was definitely a question, because, hell yes, she was still confused. Was he high? Or blind? Maybe both?
He laughed. “We’ll get there. How was the rest of your day?”
Read My Review:
Salvaging Love is about Ellie Blevins, a veterinarian, and Jackson Kincaid, a hotshot lawyer intent on disrupting Ellie's small, close-knit community. Ellie, her clinic, and her entire neighborhood are facing eviction. When tempers flare, sparks also fly. As their relationship blossoms and blooms, Jackson's dark life come to light and both their damaged pasts are revealed. I love how the author brought these two divine, yet utterly traumatized souls together.
Both Ellie and Jackson are captivating characters. I enjoyed their interactions and chemistry. I felt their pain and sadness. The author moves the reader along a twisted path as Ellie and Jackson's relationship doesn't come easy or without adversity. I was quickly drawn in and the author kept me engaged in the story. Both characters were developed nicely and the world-building was spectacular. I felt, at all times, like I was in the story.
I really enjoyed the plot, characters, and the author's writing style. Wish Jackson would have been a bit less unsure about his feelings for Ellie but otherwise the book was great. I'm glad I read Salvaging Love and can't wait for the next book in the series.
I was provided a copy of this book to read.
