Blog Tour/Review - Life in a Rut, Love Not Included by J.D. Hollyfield (#giveaway $10 GC)

Life in a Rut, Love Not Included
by: J.D. Hollyfield
Publication Date: March 1, 2014


Having it all isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. 

When Sarah Sullivan’s perfect life blows up in front of her, she finds herself crawling back to the one place she never saw herself returning: Home.

At thirty-one, Sarah had it all. Perfect job, perfect boyfriend, perfect life. When all that is taken away from her, she is left heartbroken and angry and desperate enough to let her life swallow her whole…for a while.

Fending off love and the pursuit of happiness completely, Sarah vows to pick up the pieces of her shattered life. She creates a list of goals for herself—starting with a much needed shower—and constructs a plan to dig herself out of her rut. What she doesn’t plan for is meeting the arrogant new employee her parents have hired to work on an addition to their home. Enter Jack Calloway, the handsome, charming, lickable foreman with an insatiable effect on Sarah’s girly parts.

Jack accepts the job, but gets more than he bargained for. Unable to ignore his racing hormones—and calm his temper—over the obnoxious woman who clouds his judgment, Jack pulls her in and steals her heart until she finally surrenders. But is he up for the challenge of picking up the pieces of Sarah’s broken heart? Can he carry her out of her rut?

I have to say that I am having a great time reading these cute funny romance books and Ms. Hollyfield delivered that non-stop in this story.  How many names with “Mc” can Sarah come up with?  How many times can she make an ass out of herself in front of Jack?

This is a book to read when your emotions are down because this will pick you right up and have you laughing.  Oh, and don’t get me started on the romance….I loved Jack and I loved Sarah.  Now these were characters who were so easy to connect with and follow along with their antics and blooming romance.

Ms. Hollyfield took us on a journey through heartache and rehabilitation full of humor and slap-stick comedy.  I can’t even start to sing this book’s praises enough to give the full satisfaction of reading it for yourself.

Sarah moves back in with her parents after her heart is broken by her best friend and boyfriend.  She leaves everything behind including her kick ass job with her tail between her legs.

While sulking, she accidently rams into a car in front of her and meets an obnoxious hottie who also ends up being the contractor for her parents.  Sarah is constantly making a fool of herself while drinking too much vermouth or gawking at a shirtless Jack.

The attraction ends up going both ways so Jack and Sarah see where a relationship can take then…now don’t get me wrong…they meet some roadblocks and head-butts along the way and you may even question if they are going to make it!

Fast funny read….sucks you in with the banter and klutziness between Jack and Sarah!  Give it a try and you will not be disappointed!! ♥


“No, that's not what I meant,” he says. “Look at me.” He holds my wrist firmly in
his grip, waiting for me to stop fighting his hold and make eye contact with
him. This just isn't happening to me. “Sarah, look at me,” he says again, and
at the sound of my name leaving his lips I turn and look. I see scorching gold
eyes burning right into mine. Intense emotions drain out of his eyes and pour
into mine. “I didn't kiss you because I felt sorry for you. I kissed you
because I haven't stopped thinking about kissing you since I first saw you on
the street. Then the second chance I got after you walked into my office all
bent out of hell to drive me insane. I haven’t slept a good fuckin’ night since
I slammed my mouth on yours two weeks ago. What I'm sorry about is that I took
advantage of you in a vulnerable moment. It was wrong of me.
