Blog Tour: Pretty Remedy by S.E. Hall

Title: Pretty Remedy
Series: Finally Found #2
Author: S.E. Hall
Genre: NA Romance
Release Date: April 23, 2015

Envy is a silent, cold-blooded killer, extinguishing a little more life from me every day. 

Hitting sharp, fast and seemingly out of nowhere; struck by lightning not a storm cloud in sight... in she rolls. Reece Madison, a force to be reckoned with, head of the class- which means one thing- she's out of mine. 

"You're wasting your time Rhett Foster. Locks have keys and walls can be climbed. I'm not buying your cold, skeptical act for one minute." 

And then there's that...

But as much as she compels me to open up, show her what no one else gets to see…there’s guilty shadows lurking in the depths of her eyes that she cannot hide.

Rhett is here!  I could say this can be read as a stand alone but because I loved the first book in the series so much I really recommend you read it too.  Everyone we came to know and love from See You Next Tuesday is in this story. Having said that, it is not necessary to have read it first.

Rhett is one of those guys who tries to block out pain and regret with meaningless sex with  women.  He has no trouble finding willing ladies, he exudes sexual pheromones. He never double dips though, that could lead to a woman developing feelings for him, trying to get him to open up and a second round in the sack with him.

Reece Kelly is in Vegas for a weekend away and has a chance meeting with Rhett at a local bar. She seems to have been plucked from the sky and placed into Rhett's line of sight.  She is everything he is attracted to in a girl. Reece has him figured out though and she is not interested in being one of his conquests.  

He is complete drawn to her, everything about her.  These two just click and for the first time in Rhett's life, since Liz,  he has a friendship with a girl that is non sexual.  Just being around Reece makes him feel more alive than he ever has.  There clearly is a mutual growing attraction between these two.  What I love about it is the slow build, they both need to get to a place in their lives and hearts for this to have any chance of working between them.

Reece is hiding something though and when she reveals it all to Rhett he has a big decision to make that will completely change his life in every way.  Reece has her own crap to deal with and some tough decisions to make but if everything works out the way she wants it to, there could be an amazing future ahead for both of them.

I loved getting to know Rhett a lot more and in some ways he reminded me a lot of Dane from the Emerge series by this author.  This was a really sweet story about finding the missing piece to your puzzle, your perfect little remedy.

I give this four stars.

Pretty Instinct (Finally Found #1)
Pretty Remedy (Finally Found #2)

It always happens the same way, every time. The second I finish coming, the blip of exhilaration dissipates, and I’m left feeling vapid and angry. I turn my back on my latest conquest and, blocking out the images of insincere, physical satiation, I scurry off like a criminal. Maybe I should quit fucking them.

Or maybe I shouldn’t. The tête-à-têtes, and unrequited clinginess as much their fault as my own—more in fact, if everyone’s being honest with themselves. I tell them, straight up, in plain English, no “code” or sidestepping what I’m really saying, that it’s one fuck. I offer absolutely nothing more, and they accept. But women have a specific order and purpose to everything they do. It shouldn’t eat at me when another woman discovers her plan didn’t work, and surprise, she isn’t the one “different” enough to change me. 

You want to be the lady worthy of a call the next day, flowers, a ring? Then don’t ride the dick until you get at least one of them. And if you do jump on—gyrating and grinding in what you’re just certain is some mystical, “He’s never had it so good before” kind of way, and it doesn’t work—don’t blame anyone but yourself. Who was really trying to manipulate who?
