Author: J. Lynn Bailey
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Day: January 29th
About Magnolia Road:On the outside, Bryce Hayes is satisfied with the structure of her life, her demanding career, and a series of no-strings-attached relationships, but her brother bounces in and out of rehab, her mother thinks she can beat her son’s addiction, and her father is simply doing what he can to keep a semblance of “normal”. When Bryce’s father, Congressman Hayes, orders her to Granite Harbor, Maine, due to a string of threats to their family coming from an unidentifiable source, she doesn’t expect Ethan Casey, the sexy soldier who slept with her, then walked out, without so much as a goodbye, to be her landlord.
Ethan’s past is riddled with chaos, bullets, and loud noise. After returning to his small town after the war, he’s determined to get back to his roots. Peace, quiet, and working as a game warden for the Maine Warden Service sounds right as rain. But with Bryce in Granite Harbor, staying in his house on Magnolia Road, Ethan can’t stop thinking about his future—and that includes Bryce. But to make things right with the love of his life, he’ll have to open old wounds…and risk losing her forever.
Bryce is on the run. Someone is threatening her and her family. Going to visit some friends in a town where she'll be safe. She knows going back to that town will bring her face-to-face with the man she can't forget; Ethan.
Ethan has been struggling since he left the service. He's been stuck and living in his own personal hell since he retired. He doesn't know how to open up to his friends, his family, or the girl who captured his heart one night; Bryce. When she comes back to town to stay in his rental property he knows he should stay far away, but he doesn't want to.
Bryce and Ethan are thrown together time and time again. Bryce wants nothing more than to love Ethan. Ethan wants nothing more than to push Bryce away.
Magnolia Road wasn't my favorite read by far this year. It was a bit slow and dragged in some areas.
Magnolia Road was an interesting and emotional story. I liked that it was about choosing to love and to live. The characters had an interesting story to tell.
