The Best Part of Me (McKenna #1)
by Jamie Hollins
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Age category: Adult
Release Date: September 20, 2016

He’s content to stay in the shadows…

Ewan McKenna’s days and nights are filled with drink orders, beer kegs, and noisy bar customers. Now that he’s put his tumultuous past behind him, he’s more than happy to live a solitary existence running his family’s pub. After years of walking the line between good and bad, Ewan now needs control and order to rest peacefully at night. What he doesn’t need is the fiery, intriguing woman who’s found her way into his thoughts and his bed.

She’s ready to step back into the light…

Spending the summer getting her hands dirty in her aunt’s garden in a tiny town outside Boston is exactly what Quinn Adler needs. She’s ready to shake off the grief of losing the people who meant the most to her and to start feeling again. What she doesn’t expect is to find a man who sets all her senses on fire. When the pieces seem to be nearly in place for a bright future, everything falls apart.

Will Quinn’s love be bright enough to cut through the darkness of Ewan’s past?

"If sex were a living thing with arms and legs , if it could breathe,eat and talk, then it would surely look like Ewan McKenna."

Whenever I crack open a romance novel, I know it will be a quick and fun read. I am not looking for anything too deep or anything that can't be interrupted by a needy 3 year old or a load of laundry. This book fit my romance novel needs and more. It was a fun read that wasn't over the top and wasn't too unbelievable. In fact, I could totally see this story line playing out and that made it even more fun. 

Quinn is a young woman that has had a hard year and is looking for some peace when moving in with her Aunt for the summer. Instead, she finds the damaged and good looking (duh) Ewan who has never really connected with a female besides in the bedroom and is not looking to be saved. Without giving too much away, there is some hidden drama and steamy sex scenes throughout the book that make this a definite page turner.

Like any romance novel there are parts that you will roll your eyes and think to yourself, "Ya, right!" But, there are also pages where you find yourself dying to know the ending and what happens with Quinn and Ewan. It was a good mix for me and I am looking forward to next book in the series.
