Oz: Escaping the international modeling scene to design my own fashion collection is the first step to shucking my bobble-headed supermodel reputation and proving to the world I’m more than just a pretty face. But the minute I have to accept roadside help from the sexy man next door, I feel like the airhead people think I am. And what’s worse, the man clearly doesn’t think I’m worth the time of day.
But despite trying to ignore my attraction to the mysterious doctor, I can’t help but be drawn to him. With every moment spent together, I begin to realize he’s hiding more than just some details of his past. He has one foot out the door.
As soon as I start to feel like everything might be coming together for me, I realize the man I’m falling in love with isn’t who I thought he was.
Jake: After three years on the run for being in the wrong place at the wrong time, I’ve finally found a seemingly safe place to settle in Haven, Colorado. With friends, a job, and a cabin in the woods, I have everything I need to live a simple life without drawing attention to myself. Everything’s fine. Fine.
Until I meet my new neighbor. The gorgeous man is anything but subtle and brings color to my life that I didn’t know was missing. But I learned years ago that falling in love with someone wasn’t an option anymore when simply being seen with me could have dire consequences. It’s time for me to run again, but I wonder if it’s safe to stick around just long enough for a taste…
Just when I begin to realize Oz is the missing piece to bring me back to life after years of hiding, my past catches up to me and throws everyone around me into danger. I know I should run, but what if it’s time to finally stop running and make a stand, once and for all?
While Body and Soul is the third book in the Twist of Fate series, each novel can easily be read as a standalone.
This is the third book in this series and I was very much looking forward to this one because it’s Jake’s story and I have wanted to know more about him since book 1.
I am happy to say, that I really liked both main characters in this one, which is a bit surprising since I had issues with at least one of them in the other books (Bennett, Ash)…I am a big fan of “opposites attract” and these two are definitely the opposite of one another. That’s not to say they aren’t perfect for each other…because they shared some awesome chemistry.
This book was a bit more humorous as the others as well and it definitely had me laughing out loud on more than one occasion. It was wonderful seeing these two letting their guards down and falling in love. It was also great to finally find out, what was up with Jake (one of the main reasons I wanted to read this book). I won’t tell you though…you should read it for yourself. 😛
I am gonna be honest and say that I am a bigger fan, of the angsty and emotional, that I am used to from Sloane Kennedy. This series, and especially this book, is much more lighthearted and sweet. But after reading such heavy books lately, it was just what I needed right now…It was nice catching up with Bennett, Xander, Lucky, Aiden, and Ash as well. 😉
Very curious to see whats gonna happen next!
