Blog Tour: Meant For Her Review

Photographer Sierra Stratton views the world through a lens all her own. She has an uncanny sense about people, something that often causes her trouble. When she meets the sexy and brooding Evan Dorsey, her intuition tells her he’s suffering, and she wants to be the one to help him.
Evan isn’t open to help from anyone, however. His focus is on his Major League career and making himself as marketable as possible for his upcoming free agency. He plans to ride out the season in Atlanta and then sign with another team, away from the painful memories that haunt him.
Someone’s eager to send him on his way, too. Between anonymous threats and equipment sabotage, it’s clear he’s earned himself an enemy along the way. To him, it’s one more sign that he’s right to move on.
But Sierra threatens his conviction. Her contagious smile proves hard to resist, as does her kiss. She tempts him in ways he never anticipated, making him question his plans for the first time. If he’s not careful, she might just convince him that he’s meant for her.

Having read For Everly first, though not necessary, I couldn't wait to see what she had in store for Sierra and Evan.  When I read the first chapter on her blog a few months before the release, I was hooked and was trying to figure out what had Evan so tormented.  Having initially thought it was his wife and then when I read the full book and realized it was his mom, this book moved me to a whole different level.  Knowing what It's like to lose a mom to cancer I immediately connected with Evan and could understand his issues with getting attached. Now, I know not all readers have that first hand experience, but the author does a great job trying describing the characters emotions and flaws in a way that's easy to connect to them.  There were times that I thought Evan was too harsh with Sierra, and she is a ROCK to have put up with that, but they were better for it in the end.

The connection between the two main characters is present from the start and I really enjoyed seeing how they each explored and displayed their feelings.  Plus, knowing he is an Aussie, it was fun to try and read with an accent!  If you like characters with personality and heart mixed with some major chemistry, then I think you'll love MEANT FOR HER.  

And if you haven't read For Everly, then check it out now too!
