I received this book for free from in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.Beautiful Ties by Alicia Rae
Beautiful Ties is the fourth book in the Beautiful Series, without having read any of the other books in this series. I did enjoy it regardless of that fact.
The story, in my opinion, could be read as a stand-alone because the author includes details from previous books, it was very easy to keep up with what was going on and who was who.
Abby and her brother, Kyle runs a contracting business together when Kyle decides to give his wife Lily’s cousin Jason a job. Abby and Jason met at Kyle and Lily’s wedding a few months back and had an instant connection, but neither had spoken since the wedding. Kyle knew that Abby had feelings for Jason and made her promise that she would keep their relationship on business terms as to not cause problems in the workplace. Abby has no problem with those arrangements at first, but Jason had other ideas.
I really liked Abby’s character; she was very down to earth and extremely hilarious at times. The story was written from her POV, and her reactions to Jason were comical. Jason took her lack of interest as a challenge and only tried that much harder to win her over.
The part of this story that really won me over was when Abby started taking an interest in her next-door neighbor’s daughter named Pearl. This story was every relatable, and really dealt with family dynamics and finding that special someone. I enjoyed every minute of this story and wasn’t ready for it to end!!
I would recommend to anyone looking for a great read filled with lots of romance. I gave this book five stars and will be looking forward to reading the rest of the books in this series!!
