The Beautiful Rivers Series # 2
by J.L. White
Released November 21, 2016
When Elizabeth Rivers purchases a row of historical beach cottages to renovate for the family’s luxury resort, she’s worried her new project won’t live up to the high standards of the Rivers family name. Little does she know, that’s not the thing she needs to worry about. Not at all.
Because along with the cottages comes a little problem called Brett Carmichael. Brett freaking Carmichael, historical contractor and son of Lizzy’s nemesis, a woman who mere weeks ago brutally smeared her name through the papers over a property dispute. The last thing Lizzy wants is to deal with that woman’s spawn.
But one reckless moment ignites the downright dangerous chemistry between them, and Lizzy soon learns that Brett Carmichael is a force to be reckoned with. She seems helpless to stop him from claiming her, body and heart, but she’s not so sure she’s able to do the same to him. It turns out, there’s plenty more in his family history to worry about. The reality is, his heart may not really be hers for the taking.

Another outstanding book from J.L. White!
I absolutely love Connor from Beautiful Mine, the first book in the Beautiful Rivers series by J.L. White. When I began reading Beautiful Fall, the second book in the series, I was a little nervous about meeting Brett. I mean… how can anyone compete with Connor? I am not sure how, but J.L. White did it and I absolutely freaking love Brett!
Brett Carmichael was hired by Lizzy’s contractor, Rod, to help with the reconstruction of some old cottages. Brett and Lizzy resisted their attraction for each other, but the chemistry between them was sizzling from the start! The only problem is that Brett’s mother has been fighting with Lizzy and her brothers over conservation land. Will Brett and Lizzy’s relationship survive all of the complications that they face or is it doomed to fail?
Beautiful Fall is a wonderful story full of desire, angst, and so much passion! The characters are well written and I felt completely enchanted by Brett!
I absolutely recommend Beautiful Fall!
A definite one-click buy!

His eyes flick to mine. When our gaze meets, it’s as if someone took hold of me by the shoulders and shook. The sliver is gone now, and other than a few watery blinks on my part, we’re both frozen in place. His hands are still cupping my face. I’m still standing here, my body mere inches from his. And I can’t look away.
Heat is climbing through my chest and over my face. I’m barely breathing. A voice in my head wonders, What in the hell is happening? but the rest of me is too caught in the grips of it to think. My lips part slightly in surprise – or is it something else? – and his eyes dip to them.
I know the heated look of desire when I see it. Still, he looks as confused as I am. If I had to interpret the expression on his face, it would say, What IS this?
I’m thinking the same damn thing.
Then, as if there’s nothing to do but find out, he comes in and kisses me.
My eyebrows shoot up and I intake a breath. I’ll tell you what this is. Lightening. The kind that burns up everything in its path.

Beautiful Mine by J.L. White just sucked me in from the beginning and I was hooked! It is such a passionate, hot, and sexy book about Connor Rivers and Whitney Spencer who walk the Camino de Santiago in Spain. They meet towards the end of her pilgrimage and continue to bump into each other on the trail. Acknowledging that fate is telling them something, they accept and indulge in their desire for one another. Even though their time together is short, it was hard for both to say goodbye. Then, roughly eleven months later, fate brings them together again…. And sparks fly.
I just adore this book! The story line is very realistic as well as the characters. I can absolutely see this novel being made into a movie! It was that good!
Also, Connor is absolutely my new book boyfriend!
