    Small Town Romance at its finest

    Another Molly Mlain book that I loved no surprise there!! Brody and Jenny both have emotional baggage that they deal deal with that make the story that more likeable and relatable. You will definately not be disappointed with anything that she writes.

    Molly's books just keep getting better & better!!!

    OK, first of all I have to say I love the warning that Molly posted for this book. When I reviewed her first book I was critical of the fact that there was no disclaimer stating how many 4-letter words were in the book. (She added a warning before the book was published.) Understand that I don’t object to strong language and lots of hot sexy time. However, some readers want to know and will leave negative reviews if they buy a book that didn’t warn them in advance – Molly’s books don’t deserve negative reviews! Each time I read a new book from Molly it becomes my favorite of hers and Can’t Resist Him is no exception. This book pounded all of my emotions. I felt so bad for Jenny. She feels like she is the town slut – especially after her on-again, off-again “boyfriend” dumps her – again. She is determined that she will no longer be that girl who gives away the milk for free. Brody is a damaged hero. He suffered a huge loss during his last deployment and feels responsible for what happened. He wants to deploy again but the shrink won’t clear him; something he is deeply ashamed of and hasn’t even told his family. Brody and Jenny run into each other in Las Vegas. At first they don’t realize that they have met each other before in River Bend where Jenny lives. While there is an instant attraction between the two, Jenny sticks to her new resolution and Brody is totally respectful of that. Jenny and Brody help each other to heal and just when everything is going great it all goes to hell. You’ll have to read the book for yourself to find out how things resolve and Jenny and Brody finally get their HEA. The characters in this book are well developed and the story line compelling. While this is part of a series it stands alone and you won’t feel lost if you haven’t read any of the other River Bend books (but you really should because they are great). Thank you, Molly, for allowing me to continue on your ARC team even after criticizing your first book. I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    Left a smile on my face :)

    I LOVED this story. I have not read any of the other books in this series and did not need to for the story of Brody and Jenny to find its way into my heart. I read this book and found a great story, great characters and great writing. Both Brody and Jenny have issues they are dealing with and in coming together and dealing with their issues they come out stronger, more together and better people as a result. Self-esteem and PTSD are real problems and they are dealt with well in this book. I am sitting here smiling as I think about the book and the incidents and all that happened within its pages. Thank you to Molly McLain who put this book up on NetGalley for reviewers to request, read and review.

    Emotional and Sexy Romance

    When Brody and Jenny meet New Year's Eve in Las Vegas, they surprisingly don't end up having sex (ha! not what you expected I bet!). They sleep together, but it's a comfort thing, both of them drawing what they need from each other. Their relationship therefore starts in a slower manner than you might expect, but it's exactly what the two of them need to forge a real relationship built on trust and affection. There is definitely sexual chemistry between the two and it leads to some steamy scenes between them, but the friendship they developed first is key to making their sex scenes more meaningful than just a roll in the hay, something Jenny is more used to, with a bad reputation as a result. Brody sees beyond that reputation to the hurt and vulnerable woman underneath and is determined to prove to her that she is worth every moment they spend together. The problem of course, is that he doesn't believe in his own worth, having suffered through a difficult last mission that resulted in two of his comrades dying, and him being left with survivor guilt. Jenny is the perfect foil for him, giving him the understanding he requires to move forward, not pitying him but showing him that he is valued and appreciated just as he is. I had a small problem with one of the scenes, where Brody drives home drunk from the bar. Alcohol is a crutch for him for his PTSD (I'm assuming this, as it isn't explicitly stated that way but there are a few scenes where it's obvious Brody is drinking to excess). I wish it had been acknowledged more as a problem and had him deal with it in a better way (drinking and driving is on my list of things that a hero wouldn't do, so it diminished Brody in my eyes, because it wasn't something that he seemed aware was wrong). I liked how Jenny stood up for Brody no matter the circumstances, especially when her friends (including her ex-lover Reed) were harping on him and his problems, not understanding the effect his tours have had on his psyche. The two made for a great couple, each being the healing balm for the other, and I really enjoyed seeing them find their happy ever after with each other. 3.5 stars, and a solid addition to the series.

    Friends to Lovers

    I loved the story of Brody and Jenny. Neither are looking for a relationship. Jenny is done with men, after her last breakup. Brody has just been released from the Marines and is suffering from PTSD. They meet in Vegas, they develop a quick friendship but soon find out that there is a intense sexual attraction between the two of them. Loved how their friendship grew between the two, great conversations. The healing of Brody through Jenny, is wonderful. Love visiting River Bend, such a great group of friends.
