Very good romance book!

Mending the Line
by: Christy Hayes

Jill Jennings’ dream of becoming an elite runner turns into a nightmare when she breaks her leg less than a year before the Olympic trials. After two surgeries and a lengthy rehabilitation, she’s ready to pursue her goal again. Or is she… 

Jill’s healing and ready to hit the pavement, but her passion for the sport she’d planned to make her career unexpectedly wanes. On a whim, she changes course and runs right into tall, blonde, and gorgeous Tyler Bloodworth. Fly fisherman come and go in south central Colorado, but Ty’s back for a second summer, minus his girlfriend and hotter than ever.

Tyler Bloodworth's life plan to start a fly-fishing business with his dad back home in North Carolina is suddenly snagged when Jill Jennings runs circles around his heart during a summer stint as a fishing guide in Colorado. Back for a second summer, he sets his bait and casts his line, but Jill's not so easy to catch.

A catch and release fisherman breaks Golden Rule #1: he hooks a girl he can’t let go. A distance runner with big dreams and an uncertain future falls hard for a summer fling. Can Jill risk losing her career and her heart to Tyler when he’ll be gone in a few months, or will Ty reel in the biggest catch of his life?

4 Beautiful Romance Stars!
My Review:

First, thanks to Netgalley for a copy of this in exchange for an honest review.

This is a really cute Romance/New Adult novel. What I really loved about this one is that it was so different from other books I have read. Sometimes you just need a book that isn't so full of angst and cheating and turmoil and this one is just that. Sometimes you just want to read a book and feel the love and not get heartburn. Right, girls?

Jill stumbles in Ty's world and Ty falls quickly. After beating around the bush for a year, Ty finally starts to make his move. I absolutely adored Ty. He is one of my favorite book boyfriends now. He is so sweet, honest, understanding, and just freaking perfect. I love how he openly admits his feelings for Jill without all the major idiotness we see in some books from the hero (is that a word-idiotness)? Oh well. Jill is pretty great. I am thrilled she showed her dad up! Sometimes parents put too much pressure on the kids and ruin the sport for the kid. I see it happen all the time. Jill got on my nerves a few times with her nieveness (is that a word), but we have to look at the ages here. I kept expecting something more from Lyle, like some sabotage to the relationship or something. Maybe I have read too many angsty novels. And Olivia, you are such an attention whore!

I learned some new fishing terms from this book and I can honestly say I want to gather my pole and a box of worms and head to the lake. Oh, and I most certainly won't forget my Nook when I do that.

If you are in the mood for a great romance/new adult novel, then don't hesitate to try this one out. It's cute and sweet without giving you a toothache.
