    A Must Read!

    Where I Need To Be (McKenna Series Book 3) by Hollins, Jamie This is Megan McKenna and James Foley’s story. James Foley bought out his dad's auto shop when he was around nineteen. He is raising his son with the help of his father. James tried to get his wife help with her drug addiction but would never follow through with the treatments. He ended up divorcing her. Now, James only has time for his son and his shop. Then he keeps crossing paths with school teacher, Megan McKenna and things begin to change. Megan has just gone through a nasty divorce with her cheating husband. James and Megan connect due to understanding of the emotional pain of divorce plus they are extremely attracted to one another. Neither one want a relationship but will friends with benefits be enough for them? Wow!! This was an amazing read! I could not put it down. The story was entertaining, emotional, heartwarming, and the chemistry between Megan and James was off the charts. The author did a great job of where the reader could feel the emotions of James and Megan. This is a must read! FYI, contains mature content. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

    Great end to the series

    I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book. This is the story of sister Megan Dempsey/McKenna, she is the sister of Sean and Ewan's cousin and we meet her in Chicago which is where she is now living. We meet her as she brings a clunker car to James' car shop. James knows her as the wife of the hoity toity Niall Dempsey and so he doesn't treat her that great as well. Megan is now the pennyless exwife or her cheatng ex husband who has taken everything she had except her dignity. Megan is starting over from scratch, she has a new care, new job and is in the process of getting a new apartment. I beyond LOVED Megan. Not many people would have what happened to her and never tell anyone namely her family. In fact for most of the book her parents don't know she is divorced. She is a tough cookie but also a sweetheart and she stole this entire book. Which is funny because the only thing she fears is letting down her family, which is why they don't know that she is divorced. James is a single father with lots of guilt and the second time he sees Megan he finds out just what a jerk her ex is. I loved how he treated her ex. Then the next time he meets Megan it is at a parent teacher conference and that is when he really starts to see who Megan is and learn she is now single. James is a really terrific character. He doesn't just charm Megan, he charms me too. He has not had an easy life but he has a super cute son and a really wonderful dad and he is not afraid to lean on his family. He is the opposite of anyone Megan has met before and the two together work really well. At first glance they don't seem a lot alike but they have been majorly burned before by exes and James really helps Megan learn to deal with her new life and he is really there for her. Together they have lots of HOT scenes and adventures and together they have to decide on what relationship they want. This is a story of two mature and strong people learning how to let the other one in and it was a really special story. It is extremely well written and I really loved the entire story. It is the final story in the series and I am very sad because it was such a great series. This story is definitely my favorite of the 3 stories and it easily stands alone. Though if you read the other books some scenes will have more meaning to you as we get to see the characters from the other books future.

    I loved everything about this book!

    I loved everything about this book-the characters, the world, the uncertainty, the love. Megan and James were an unlikely pair on the surface, but it was quickly revealed that their was more to their connection than they ever could have imagined. The author did a wonderful job of building their story. It was realistic and raw. The progression of their relationship was natural and heartbreaking at times. It's always difficult to find the characters in a position where they want to move beyond the casual to something more committed but struggle with verbalizing and accepting their feelings. Megan and James were no different. It was evident that they were falling for each other but not ready to move beyond the hurt they had endured with their exes. I loved witnessing their growth and acquiescence. Their story was quite beautiful. Megan was classy, sweet, beautiful both inside and out, and strong. She was forced into a life so different from what she was accustomed after her divorce and struggled to remain independent through it all. I hated her need for perfection when it came to her family, who I know without a doubt would have been there to support her both physically and mentally. It was great that she had Callie, her new roommate, and James in her corner. James was a fabulous character. He was gruff but sweet, a wonderful father and son, and the best possible person for Megan. James helped her come out of her shell and remember the person she was before Niall, her ex. Likewise, she did the same for him, forcing him to face life again and trust and love someone outside of his family. I loved his patience and giving heart, his strength of character, and the way he cherished Megan. At the same time, I wanted to knock him over the head for some of his actions and the callousness he showed towards Megan when he was fighting his feelings. This was my first book by Jamie Hollins, and I can't wait to go back to the beginning of the series to read about the rest of the McKennas. This is especially true after reading about them in the epilogue. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Readers Copy of this book.

    Charming & Heartfelt

    This is my first time diving into the McKenna series and reading author Jamie Hollins. I usually don’t go for Contemporary reads unless it’s Romantic Suspense, but the blurb peeked my interest. I liked the idea of two adults, both divorced, with pasts and issues to deal with ending up coming together and finding strength, love, and a true partnership. James. I loved him. He’s perfect yet not, has issues to deal with, always has grease on him, overworks himself, and is doing the best he can in raising his son with the help of his father. We see several different sides to him and so you can not help but fall in love with him. His dedication to his work and how he put his kid’s feelings above his own. Perfect. Sweet. Megan. I found her to be smart and sweet, but also a little week and her issue of not confiding in her family about her divorce and dating James really upset me. She was doing great, turning her life around, found a job she loves, and a man who was exactly what she needed, but she disappointed me in making excuses and not ripping that banded off with her family. The story was good and I liked it. I enjoyed the characters and found the romance to be sweet, adorable, and satisfying. I liked that they took their time getting to know each other and that they also communicated, where open, and upfront from the start. It made the romance and relationship seem so real. The epilogue wrapped everything up marvelously and I loved seeing the whole family be together. Where I Need To Be is a charming and heartfelt romance, with a few laugh out loud moments, and some hot sexy scenes. I had a delightful time and will be check out previous books in the series. Rated: 4 Stars *Disclaimer: I received a complimentary copy provided by Jamie Hollins via NetGalley with the sole purpose of an honest review. All thoughts, comments and ratings are my own.

    Are they strong enough ...

    She's more than just a pretty face. He's the strong silent type. In an instant Megan and James' world is rocked by betrayal? Are they strong enough to gather up the pieces and rebuild? To the outside world, Megan had the perfect life. In reality, it was anything but. Infidelity, heartache and hopelessness have sent her life into a tailspin. The last thing she needs is to open her heart to more pain. Will she ever be able to trust her emotions again? James has endured his share of rain. Drugs broke his heart and stole his wife. Will the woman that seems all wrong for him, end up proving to be just right? Where I Need to Be proves that the bleakest moments can teach the most powerful lessons. Jamie Hollins gives courage to keep on fighting when all hope seems lost.
