5.0 out of 5 stars Review from Rach Lawrence Books 25 Feb. 2015
By Rachel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Review originally posted on Rach Lawrence Books.

*I was provided a copy of Bear Creek Road by the author in exchange for an honest review. I am not compensated for my honest opinion.*

Bear Creek Road tells the story of Laney Walker, a twenty-eight-year-old woman who feels old before her time thanks to recent events in her life. She’s just left everything and everyone she knows behind to start over, moving across the country to a small town where life is very different from what she’s used to. In Laney’s quest to get away from her problems, she finds herself a whole set of new ones in the shape of a run-down house and an attraction to a man who seems to want nothing to do with her.

The baffling Joe Boone takes it upon himself to fix Laney’s house. He arrives before the rest of the construction crew and is always the last to leave, yet he barely speaks to her. Despite warnings that Joe is no good, Laney can’t help but want to be close to him even though she has her own demons to contend with.

Laney unapologetically wears her flaws on her sleeve, recognizing her weaknesses while trying to find who she really is. Joe hides his flaws behind a beard and shaggy head of hair, only speaking when necessary. He’s a mystery you’ll want to unravel, and you’ll find yourself hanging on his every word.

This story is so different from everything I’ve read recently, with one of the main characters providing such limited dialogue, but that’s exactly what draws me to Joe. I can’t wait for his next words. While reading, I feel like I’m right there with Laney, wondering what’s going through Joe’s mind and what he means by the few words he does say. Add that to the sexual tension that builds between these two, and you’ll need something to cool off with when the tension reaches its boiling point!

Bear Creek Road is book one in the A Fresh Start series, but it’s a standalone novel. The characters are refreshingly real and down-to-earth, making this story a pleasure to read. I look forward to the next book in the series.

4.0 out of 5 stars potential 1 Dec. 2014
By B. Hughes - Published on Amazon.com

There is a lot to love with this short story. Joe comes off a typical man with his own problems he doesn't want to acknowledge and Laney is running away from hers. It's a simplistic love story that focuses on the bare necessities. I only have 3 main pet peeves... 1. There are a lot of M names (Mona, Martha, mark etc) gets a bit confusing. 2. There were times I wanted her to let loose instead of constantly bottling up her feelings or letting things slide. 3. I wish it was longer to flesh out more of what happens with the house and if they ever conceived/ is she even able too? I'm not a fan of open ended things like that. The ending ends on a happy not but I was left with wanting more. Overall I really enjoyed the book and perhaps the author will revisit with these characters again.
3.0 out of 5 stars Life beyond a broken heart 1 Mar. 2015
By Belissima - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Story is a bit too realistic for my liking. I can totally see it happening to someone. I read for escapism. To escape the mundane of everyday life. This book although well written moves at a slower pace, full of details. I usually read things that moves faster, something that I can live vicariously through the actions of the main character. Here, the main character life is just as ordinary as mine, more heartbreaking situations though. I have no desire to be like her in any shape of format. Yes it's a nice romance but no fire beneath it all it seems. I want the heart-wrenching passion that goes with the good and bad times. I want to escape the ordinary and find the extraordinary in my books. So while its a well written book, I'm not sure I would recommend unless you looking for a more sedate and realistic type of story.

5.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful love story told in subtleties 3 Jan. 2015
By ysar - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
When a terribly betrayal and failed engagement send Laney running, she finds herself the new owner of a dilapidated old house deep in the woods and as far as possible from the life she once knew. Faced with peeling wallpaper, rusted out pipes, and no electricity thanks to a tree taking out the power line, her days become filled with restoration efforts, workmen traipsing over her property and through her house, and gossipy neighbors intent on setting her up with some bland guy who couldn't be further from her type. Her type is more the quiet, gruff, clearly not interested in her Mr. Fix-it that everyone's telling her to stay away from…

The Verdict: I think I'm probably one of the few who saw this story in its original incarnation and didn't read it, though I'm pretty sure I've got a copy of that version somewhere on this computer. Seriously, I download everything. But I must have been caught up in some other story or series or real life boredom at the time, so when I saw it pop up on Amazon, I figured I'd give the published version a shot. Best decision ever.

I loved Laney right off the bat, in large part because she wanted her solitude more than she wanted to play nice with the way-too-neighborly people who invaded her new start in life. It wasn't about who she needed to impress or what anyone thought of her; it was about whatever simple ways she could begin to reclaim her own life, starting with the falling apart house she'd bought. The repair crew was typical, including one particular man who kept pushing for a date despite Laney's obvious disinterest, but then there was Joe. Joe's not your typical romance novel hero. He's quiet and gruff to the extreme, and he brushes off nearly every attempt Laney makes at conversation. But he stays long after everyone else leaves every day, working on things that aren't part of the job, and it's those simple, clear gestures that speak more than he does.

Laney and Joe are both pretty broken people, though their story focuses more on simple human interaction than heavy angst. Their courtship, if you will, is atypical as well, a series of awkward silences and growing comfort that culminate in a deep relationship that relies more heavily on emotion and small actions than words. Not much is offered in the way of the characters' backgrounds, aside from the simple facts that both led them to where they meet, but even that doesn't feel like an oversight, instead keeping everything about the here and now, the intersection that begins their real story. Laney and Joe both seem to be drifting in a sort of numbness until they come together, and still they have internal walls to overcome before they're all in.

The writing style, while not your standard literary prose, evokes the same depth of feeling, and where most romances depend on over-the-top declarations and grand gestures, Bear Creek Road tells a beautiful love story in subtleties and moving expressions.

Great story, loved the dynamics of Joe and Laney. Beautifully written, the author gives just enough detail so you can imagine exactly what she's describing. Looking forward to more from this author.
