The title of my blog describes me to a tee, I recently got back into my love for reading and wanted to share my thoughts. I started enjoying a glass of wine to help me relax and find time for myself by reading a good book.

Review Tour - Catching To Win: Over The Fence book 3
Kelsey O'Brien is the definition of a free
spirit. She goes where she wants, when she wants, and takes to bed who she
wants. And when she arrives back at Grover University after eight months on an
African animal preserve, its her newly hunky best friend that has caught her
eye. As their friendship turns physical, Kelsey begins to form feelings she
swore she'd never have for anyone. But when the past she's not ready to face finds
her, she must make a decision whether to stop running, or confront the truth.
The first time Clint Bellows laid eyes on
Kelsey, he fell hard. Too bad she looked right through him. A year and
countless hours in the gym later, she's back and hardly recognizes him and his
new body. After a drunken encounter takes them over the line of friendship,
Clint agrees to Kelsey's proposal of a benefits-added relationship. Only he's
playing for keeps, and is willing to round all of the bases trying to score the
She's running from her demons. He's committed
to winning her over. Can he catch her in time, or will she be out of his grasp
before he can blink?
And the best reason not to do this. She is definitely going to rip my aching heart of my chest and obliterate it.
If my heart hadn't tattooed her name on it two years ago, it would have surrendered
itself to her today.
I love her. I've loved her since the
first time she walked up those
front steps and I'd looked into
those hazel eyes.
I beat him in our race to get naked, and he's devouring me with
those eyes like I'm his next meal.
Catching to Win is my first Carrie Aarons read and I have to say, I have become a fan.
After reading this story I really wished I would have started with the first book in the series, even though it's not necessary but somehow all the characters from the previous stories leave a lasting impression.
I absolutely adored Clint Bellows, it was so refreshing to read a story where the hero is a perfect gentleman and a amazing friend. Clint has issues with his weight and his inexperience with women, once he lays his eyes on Kesey O'Brien he realizes that countless hours at the gym will be the best way to get her attention. A year later, Clint is every girls dream but his heart is still set on one woman Kelsey who now is his best friend.
Kelsey O' Brien is a handful, she is free-spirited and is also carefree when it comes to drinking and men. Kelsey, has secrets that keep her running and afraid to find love.
When it comes to Kelsey and Clint their friendship takes a turn when Kelsey offers a proposal of friends with benefits. In this story of friends to lovers, Clint knows who he wants and is not willing to give up. Kelsey on the other hand, fights all these new feelings for her best friend, she just has to face the demons of her past and stop running. Hopefully, Clint will still be around when she realizes that she can love and have everything that she wants.
I love this story and I am definitely going to find time to read the first two books in this series.Catching To Winhad everything I needed in a story strong characters, love, hate, passion, heartache and humor.
