(Sapphire Falls #7)

Published May 10th 2016
Bryan Murray always knew that he wanted to come home to Sapphire Falls and settle down with Tessa Sheridan. After all, Tessa’s sweet and kind and beautiful and planning to live in Sapphire Falls forever. Best of all, she’s loved him since kindergarten. She’s the perfect forever girl for him. He just didn’t expect it to all happen quite like this. But a not-so-little tumble down a mountain while biking has turned his life upside down and landed him back at home.
A longtime coach to high level athletes, Bryan knows all about facing obstacles head-on and turning challenges into opportunities. So, things aren’t going exactly the way he planned them– at least Tessa is the same girl who’s just been waiting for him to come home.
Tessa has been saving herself for Bryan in every way. She’s even been saving her pennies so she could move to Colorado to train with him for the marathon trophies she’s got her heart set on–a new passion she’s discovered all because of Bryan. But now he’s messed everything up. Not only is he bartending instead of coaching, but he’s decided to go from a hot, sexy playboy type to sweet romantic boyfriend material. And worst of all, he’s doing it all in Sapphire Falls.
What’s a girl gotta do to get away from her hometown and have an adventure or two? Now that marathon training and hot sex against the shower wall are out of the question with Bryan, Tess has to come up with a new plan to make her dreams, and fantasies, come true. All while being romanced by the only man who’s ever had her heart.
She looked up. He wasn’t smiling now. Huh. But she really did want to see his chest. She slipped her hands under the bottom of the shirt and slid it up, revealing his hard abs, his ribs, the soft dusting of hair over his well-defined pecs and then up over his head. He moved his arms only enough to let her get the shirt off, then he put his elbows right back on the couch behind him as if fully comfortable being naked in front of her.
He was magnificent. Not that Tess had seen a lot of naked males, but she’d certainly seen shirtless ones. One of the best things about living in Sapphire Falls was that there were lots of farm boys here, and farm boys went shirtless a lot.
Admittedly I LOVE the Sapphire Falls series by Erin Nicholas, but I have to say I’ve just been totally WOW’d by GETTING HIS WAY! I did not want to put it down!!! The fact I was trying to read it during a crazy time for me meant I had to repeatedly put it down, but I was stealing time with Tessa and Bryan any time I had a few minutes. Chapter by chapter, and sometimes paragraph by paragraph if that’s all I could sneak in, lol.
One big difference in Getting His Way and other Sapphire Falls books, for me anyway, was I was more focused on the female lead… Tessa… than I was the hunky male lead, Bryan. Believe me, Bryan was drool worthy, witty, charming, romantic, confident and sexy with just the right touch of humble to make him excellent book boyfriend material. But Tessa was inspiring, surprising, sassy, self-motivated, kind, sweet, curvy, beautiful, and confidently in charge of her own life. She knew what she wanted and didn’t shy away from going for it… or asking for it… or demanding it… when the occasion called for it. EN took a girl who’d seemed shy in the background of earlier books and proved her to be a force to be reckoned with. Poor Bryan didn’t know which way was up or down for a while there as Tessa blew to pieces all his preconceptions of the girl he’d left waiting.
This story was fantastic! As always a comical blend of Sapphire Falls characters to bring balance and lots of humor along with a warm, fuzzy, small town feel. And steam with just the right amount of dirty talk mixed in with all the sigh-worthy sweet romance. Great read from the first page to the last! 4.5 stars
