Synopsis4

I know what you’re thinking. It’s unconventional to want a man nine years older than you. It’s inconvenient to crush on your dearest friend’s older brother. It’s silly to pine after a man for six years. It’s cliché to lust after a celebrity. It’s pathetic to fall in love with a man who barely knows you exist.

I know what you’re thinking because I’ve thought it all, too. And yet that hasn’t stopped me from wanting Blake Campbell. Charming, gorgeous, brilliant, kind, selfless – Blake is everything I’ve ever wanted, but he doesn’t see me that way. In fact, he hardly noticed me until one night.

Traumatic events brought us together for the first time, but then he tossed me aside. I know it’s irrational, but I wanted him up until the moment he left me lying there alone.

When his eyes finally open and he finds out I’ve left, will it be too late?

Review

Pressure Point is second book in The Point Series.  This is Blake and Stella’s story.  After finishing up New Point and falling in love with Zoe and Miles, I couldn’t wait to hear more about Blake and now he’s here!!

Blake Campbell is a former famous college football star from IU, who now manages two successful sports teams.  He is all work no play.  Blake has spent his entire adult life taking care of his sister, Zoe.  He is overprotective of Zoe, but not without very good reason.

You get to start from the beginning, which is also the start of Stella’s meeting with the two.   Zoe is attending college and Stella Baccino happens to be her RA.  Blake comes to the dorms to see his little sister and that is where he meets Stella for the first time.  Stella was head over heels for Blake, tripping over herself, literally after first meeting him.  He is pressed and polished and the epitome of perfection.   Stella had no idea he was famous and had no intentions of ever being with Blake after her and Zoe became very best friends.  Zoe is used to girls becoming close to her to get to her brother, and Stella didn’t want to be one them.  So, she kept her feelings to herself.

The more time Stella spends with Zoe the more her attraction for Blake grows, as does his for her.  But for years, neither act on it.  Then tragedy strikes and it affects them all. Stella is left broken as her best friend is pulling away, Blake at a loss as someone he has protected with his whole life more like a father figure is lost and shattered.  In this tragedy, they all find themselves, but it’s not an easy road.

Will the man who always took care of his sister, finally take care of himself?  Will Stella finally find happiness with Blake?

I loved hearing Blake and Stella’s story.  It intertwined so perfectly with Pressure Point (Zoe’s story), which I highly recommend reading before you read Pressure Point.  Stella and Blake’s relationship was filled with tons of emotion.   That man seriously just melts my heart!  We saw his protective side in Pressure Point, but never really got to know the man himself and god I am so glad Olivia decided to show us!  This book was emotional, sexy and heart-warming.    You will fall in love with all the characters, Zoe and Miles in New Point, Blake and Stella, Stella’s other friend Violet she meets through work in addition to Stella’s family, which I adore!!     I look forward to continuing the journey with Olivia in her next book, Point of No Return, which will be Violet’s story.  4.5 Stars!!

Excerpt4

Prologue

Some people trip over a crack in the sidewalk and meet the love of their life. Some people are walking down the street, lost in a text message when they literally stumble into their destiny. Others don’t have romance on their radar when they fall off the deep end and into the relationship that makes them whole. In other words, love finds them and not the other way around.

I’ve never been one of those people. Romantic. Dreamer. Idealist. I’ve been called them all. Those nicknames never bothered me because I knew all the way to the marrow of my bones that the love of my own life was not too far away.

In my mind, the scenario was complete.

Our eyes would meet across a crowded room.

No, that’s not right.

Let’s take it from the top.

He’d become aware of me first, unable to wrench his eyes away from my glossy back waves (thank you Italian heritage and superb genetics). They would tumble around my shoulders elegantly and I’d be wearing an outfit that elongates my short legs (stubs, as my cousins called them. Rude.).

In my mind, the moment I meet him is flawless.

Reality had a different idea.

Because when I found the man I knew I was destined to be with me, he hardly noticed me. Every time after, he saw me as nothing more than a friend to his sister. Most times we interacted he scarcely paid attention to me, if only to provide pleasantries.

Despite all that, my gut keeps telling me that I’m meant to be with him. I’m not giving up. No matter what.

Synopsis4

Imagine the worst day of your life. Immerse yourself in the details. How did you feel? Who were you with? What were the consequences?

Recalling my darkest day is as simple as typing a few search terms into a web browser. It only took thirty minutes for me to become the center of a media frenzy that caught the attention of an entire country.

So I hid.

Nine months later and I’m getting better. Moved two hours from home, landed my dream job, and met a delicious new guy.

Healing is that simple, right?

Wrong.

Review

Reviewed by Shera 4 out of 5 Stars!

Zoe Baker hasn’t had an easy life.  She moves to the small town of New Point to get away and try to find some calm.  Caught up in a media frenzy she needed to go where no one knew her, knew what she has been through or her past.  Her parents passed away when she was young and her brother Blake has always looked out for Zoe and tried to protect her anyway he could.   She goes to New Point alone in hopes of healing, forgetting and trying to move on the calm beach in New Point.  She lands her dream job, one that truly makes her happy again but she’s still holding on to her secret….

“The funny thing about secrets is that in your mind they seem small.  They are tiny pieces of information that maintain a speck in a lifetime of memories.  Only when the secret is released in the wild does it become obvious the mammoth weight of what you hid”

Miles is a sexy as sin bartender, or so Zoe thinks.  He actually owns the Bar and the house right down the beach from her.  He is sweet, caring and is instantly drawn to Zoe the minute he meets her.   He is extremely patient with Zoe knowing that she is holding back and is hiding something.  He does get frustrated and has a hard head and sometimes him running away is what he thinks is best.   We all know that’s not the answer and it takes running away to sometimes see exactly what your running away from.

“I never lay my cars on the table like this, Zoe.  There’s a depth that I can’t resist.  I want to uncover your secrets”

The connection between these two is undeniable.  It’s been evident since day one, they both felt it but does it turn into something more?  Can Zoe ever let herself trust Miles and let him in?  Will he push too much and drive her away?  Can she ever get over what happened in the past and move forward or does the past come back to haunt her once again?

“Miles is so sure of himself, strong.  He knows what he wants out of life, and I’m still trying to put myself back together”

I really enjoyed this book.   It takes you on a journey of pain, acceptance and finding life again.  I read this book in one sitting and couldn’t put it down.  Once the story starts you get sucked in!  I look forward to delving more into some of the secondary characters, especially Zoe’s brother Blake. I know his story is going to be amazing.  A Football Star, always in the spotlight, can he ever find love?    I give this book 4 of 5 stars.   I look forward to reading the next book in the series and hope it’s about Blake !
