The Quick and Dirty: Bookworm + Former Navy Seal + a fresh twist on pen-pal romance. A crossover into the Salvation Series World by Corinne Michaels.
Olivia works for a publisher and starts a buddy read program for soldiers with PTSD. She’s paired with Connor who is brusque, rude and thinks the program is a crock. Normally timid and reluctant to make waves, Olivia responds in kind, sparking a friendship. As the two read together, what started off as a reluctant pairing between a bookworm and a former navy seal leads to something hotter. The two live on opposite coasts though, so how they’ll feel about each other when they finally meet in person is Unpredictable* (see what I did there? 😉).
Despite the characters essentially falling for each other sight unseen, the relationship progressed organically and we really understand what Olivia and Connor’s motives are. I loved the crossover to both the Salvation Series and Jenna’s most recent release Unpredictable. Also, that plot twist? 💯 🙌 So good! If you need a weekend read, this is it!
* ICYMI, Olivia is Daddy Harrison’s daughter… and if you don’t know who he is you need to get yourself a copy of Unpredictable stat, because 🔥🤤).
He’s arrogant and insufferable.
But the more I get to know Connor, the more I see beneath the tough exterior.
He’s a hero, and he’s hurting.
We’ve never met, yet I’m drawn to help him.
There’s a connection I can’t deny. A pull I can’t ignore.
Is it crazy to think I might be falling for a man sight unseen?
Unwritten is part of the Salvation Series World by Corinne Michaels. It’s a cross-over between that series and Jenna Hartley’s Love in LA Series.
Contemporary romance author, Jenna Hartley writes about strong, independent women and the men who dare to love them. Her characters aren’t perfect; they’re authentic. Her passion is to make their stories feel as real for readers as they do to her, infusing each one with sexy, sweet, and laughable moments that reflect real love.
When she’s not writing, Jenna spends her days chasing after a hilarious and imaginative toddler, as well as hunting down new allergy-friendly recipes for them to cook together. She lives in Texas with her family and loves nothing more than a good book, good chocolate, and Topo Chico.
