✮ ✮ ✮ NOW LIVE! ✮ ✮ ✮ GRIT by Elizabeth Hunter! + My Review

GRIT, an all-new standalone, friends-to-lovers
romance in the 7th and Main series by 
Elizabeth
Hunter
 is NOW LIVE!


He’s been patient;
she’s been busy.
Patience is running out.
Melissa Oxford is a
widow with a ranch, an orange grove, a goat-obsessed ten-year-old, and not
enough time. She doesn’t have time to make friends. She doesn’t have time to
stop and chat, and she definitely does not have time for a boyfriend.
Which is fine, because Cary Nakamura is far from being a boy. Cary’s the man
who helped Melissa plant her trees. The friend who keeps offering advice, even
when she’s is too stubborn to take it.
He’s also the man
who kissed Melissa in broad daylight on a sidewalk in Metlin, California, smack
in the face of God and everyone.
But while Melissa
may spend a little too long dreaming about Cary from a distance, she knows the
kind of passion he promises is more than she can handle.
She just doesn’t
have the time.
But sometimes, no
matter how busy you are, life makes you stop. It pulls you up short and makes
you see things a little more clearly. Things like…
The people you can
count on.
The dreams you keep pushing away.
And the passion that can’t be denied.
GRIT is a stand-alone,
friends-to-lovers romance in the Love Stories on 7th and Main series by
Elizabeth Hunter, author of INK.

MY REVIEW:

Amazing storytelling and beautiful, complex characters makes this one of my favorite reads this year. It was so good I read it straight through! The character development is spectacular and you know exactly who these folks are and what they stand for. I absolutely loved this story full of emotional ups and downs as a young widowed mother, full of spit and vinegar, is determined to keep her generational family ranch solvent and progressive while raising a precocious pre-teen daughter. And what a marvel young Abby is as the “goat queen”. Such a great character! And mother Melissa is equally wonderful along with a great supporting cast of family and friends. Now to the swoon-worthy man hunk Cary. As an older man and lifelong neighbor of Melissa’s, as well as friend to her late husband, he is so supportive and patient with both mother and daughter. He is smitten with Missy but it takes awhile for her to get on board with the change in their relationship status from friends to friends and lovers. Melissa is a fabulously strong and capable heroine. The sizzling chemistry and friendship connection between Cary and Missy is undeniable and so sexy. The banter, arguments and conversations between these two are superb and at times funny and other times raw and heartbreaking. Cary’s support is such a vital element to Melissa as she grapples with her devious in-laws while trying to maintain a relationship with them for Abby’s sake. There are so many teachable moments and fantastic elements to this story along with just enough humor to counter the heavier aspects of single parenthood, relationship changes, financially problems, family matters and quasi-political issues dealing with proposed development in this mostly ranch/farm community. One of my favorite parts was the endearing relationship between Cary and Abby. Beautiful emotions and words! The small town feel and ranching/farming setting was exceptional. This is my first story in the series and I can’t wait to catch up on the ones I missed because this on is outstanding!
