Heavy Petting (Boys of the Bayou Gone Wild #2) by Erin Nicholas

A Review by Wendy
 5 Plus-It's All About The Middle Stars
* * * * * PLUS PLUS STARS, OK!  

Spoiler Free, I PROMISE

Ok, I have PROMISED to not spoil this for you and although it will be really hard, I will do my best. The reason I have gone nutso and love this book so much is that it is so real in the most straightforward way. Have I said So enough for ya, hahahahahha.

Set aside the main thrust of why Jordan Benoit and Fletcher Landry are together, meaning Jordan Benoit gets dumped on national TV by her boyfriend Jason of eleven years who has risen and become the big country music star. Really, in Real Life, most of us do not have these types of people in our lives. Fletcher Landry, however, is more of the real deal as he is a teacher and works with the Landrys at the new Wildlife Petting Zoo.
(The new zoo also becomes important and that part of the storyline is perfect and should be honored in how it was worked into this story and hopefully open some eyes to new possibilities.)

Our premise is Fletcher and Jordan go back to childhood as best buddies and through the years, Fletcher has done everything he can to make things good for Jordan. Through the Teen years, through the College times, and most recently Fletcher has wanted to be much more than besties. He will still do whatever he can to make sure Jordan is happy as that has always been his goal.

When Fletcher physically sees this car crash happening to Jordan live on TV, he is moving to get to Vegas as soon as he can to be there for Jordan. Now the blurb sets everything up and you know they get married. No Spoiler there. They have some moments of connecting and surprisingly enough some tingles and thoughts from Jordan are not of the best friend kind but more. Which can make total sense because of their history.

Now they go back to Fletcher's and Jordan's home with Miss Ellie and Cora and all the crew. It is there where the REAL LIFE story starts to happen. It is where learning to love someone all the time, not just in a moment to make things right happens and People, this is where you will lose your mind and fall so hard for this couple your eyes will cross.

Erin Nicholas takes what is part of REAL LIFE and turns it into the sexiest, hot, revealing, and smartest relationship building I have ever read. There is confusion, there is discovery, there is the sense of wonder and excitement to getting this relationship/marriage thing right. We get to be there when all of the baby steps and miss-steps are happening.

We get the benefit of All the Landrys' wisdom and there is plenty of it. As someone who was married for many many many years, this book should be pitched as a marriage manual, and not just for the wisdom. It shows how important learning about your partner in all ways matters.

So I am not Spoiling this book for you, as much as I would love to go on and on and on. Instead, I am going to just say, BUY AND READ THE DAMN BOOK, OK...

Also, we have more Landrys finding their person. Yay!
