Review: Caught Up In You (The Monroes #2) by Jules Bennett

The Monroe brothers have their differences, but one project unites them: turning an antebellum mansion in their Haven, Georgia, hometown into a peaceful spa. It was the dream of their late sister—and it’s about to set off a major renovation in the life of middle brother Braxton…
Braxton Monroe’s taking a break from teaching to do some strenuous work on a Civil War–era house, and feeling the strain in every rock-hard muscle. Good thing he has to interview massage therapists for the spa—even if it’s embarrassing to meet a job candidate in his boxers. Cora Buchanan has hands so talented—and a voice so sultry—he wants to hire her before he even lifts his head from the table. But he’s shocked to meet her outside the massage room—with her seeing-eye dog, Heidi the yellow lab.  

Cora has left her family—and fiancé—in Atlanta to make her way in this small town. All her parents’ money can’t restore her sight, but it’s up to her to restore her independence. Though she bristles at Braxton’s protectiveness, she too feels lingering effects from their intimate touch. Now that he’s her boss, it’s strictly hands-off….Until a secret she’s keeping destroys his fragile trust, and they must find the courage to knock down the walls between them.

Terri's Thoughts

I received a copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.  Thank you!

This is the second book in the Monroe series that features the Monroe brothers.  Although I feel that this could have ben read as a stand alone, I think there is greater value in reading the series in order.  As I had already read the first installment, I was able to recognize several characters and know their backstories.

This story was original to me in the fact that the main character was blind.  It was nice that a story could feature someone who had a disability who was also strong, independent and just as captivating as someone who has their vision.  I must admit that I was also a sucker for Heidi, being a big fan of dogs in general and having a fascination with service dogs.  It could be the fact that I am the proud mother of a golden retriever however as much as I lover her, she couldn't do what Heidi was able to do.

This was a story of finding ones independence, love and attraction and starting over.  A similar theme has been evident in the series thus far and I suspect that the next instalment will be the same.  Considering the start that the Monroe brothers had (no spoilers) I can see why.

This was a good read for me and I think it is my favorite in the series thus far.
