Meant for Her
NA Contemporary Romance
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.
I was very excited to hear the Thomas was doing another contemporary novel. I loved For Everly and wanted more. Meant for Her begins in a lovely spin-off scene with the For Everly characters. Sierra and Evan have an instant connection but it isn't there time. The next chapter starts a few months later when Evan joins the Atlanta team.
Meant for Her is now one of my favorite New Adult novels. It has a beautifully written love story but it's a little different from the typical. Sierra is a very strong female character. Once she feels that instant connection with Evan, she knows what she wants. And she makes sure she gets what she wants. This is what made Meant for Her fresh but still kept with the New Adult trend.
In the story Evan isn't ready to let go of his hurt to love Sierra, but with a little bit of help from her relatives and some patience, she's able to continue to try for him. The push and pull from Evan throughout the book made me keep flipping the page. I enjoyed seeing him come around to the idea of Sierra.
Overall this book gets 5 Stars from me. I enjoyed the characters and the fluctuations in the story line kept it interesting throughout! Also Go Braves! :)
