**Blog Tour** Life in a Rut by J D Hollyfield

Life in a Rut, Love Not Included
by: J.D. Hollyfield
Publication Date: March 1, 2014

Having it all isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. 

When Sarah Sullivan’s perfect life blows up in front of her, she finds herself crawling back to the one place she never saw herself returning: Home.

At thirty-one, Sarah had it all. Perfect job, perfect boyfriend, perfect life. When all that is taken away from her, she is left heartbroken and angry and desperate enough to let her life swallow her whole…for a while.

Fending off love and the pursuit of happiness completely, Sarah vows to pick up the pieces of her shattered life. She creates a list of goals for herself—starting with a much needed shower—and constructs a plan to dig herself out of her rut. What she doesn’t plan for is meeting the arrogant new employee her parents have hired to work on an addition to their home. Enter Jack Calloway, the handsome, charming, lickable foreman with an insatiable effect on Sarah’s girly parts.

Jack accepts the job, but gets more than he bargained for. Unable to ignore his racing hormones—and calm his temper—over the obnoxious woman who clouds his judgment, Jack pulls her in and steals her heart until she finally surrenders. But is he up for the challenge of picking up the pieces of Sarah’s broken heart? Can he carry her out of her rut?

Tara's Review 3.5***

We meet Sarah Sullivan.  Young, smart and she has everything going for her. However, one day, everything  vanishes in a blink of an eye, and Sarah has to find the strength to start all over. When Sarah has an unfortunate run-in with Jack Calloway, she can't believe how unlucky she really is. Jack's life is changed the moment he looks into Sarah's eyes.  Can Jack get Sarah to see the woman she really is?  Is Sarah strong enough to overcome her past?

"It has been three months since my bubble exploded, and I mean like with a Boom! Bam! POW!  As in a SPLAT! In my face.  If you look closely enough, I think I still have pieces of bubble stuck to my skin..."

This book was a nice read!  I loved the humor that Jessica Hollyfield used when writing for Sarah.  The way Sarah dealt with her problems and demons, was, in my opinion, the way most women deal with crappy situations!!

All in all I would recommend this book!


that's not what I meant,” he says. “Look at me.” He holds my wrist firmly in
his grip, waiting for me to stop fighting his hold and make eye contact with
him. This just isn't happening to me. “Sarah, look at me,” he says again, and
at the sound of my name leaving his lips I turn and look. I see scorching gold
eyes burning right into mine. Intense emotions drain out of his eyes and pour
into mine. “I didn't kiss you because I felt sorry for you. I kissed you
because I haven't stopped thinking about kissing you since I first saw you on
the street. Then the second chance I got after you walked into my office all
bent out of hell to drive me insane. I haven’t slept a good fuckin’ night since
I slammed my mouth on yours two weeks ago. What I'm sorry about is that I took
advantage of you in a vulnerable moment. It was wrong of me.
