Genre: Adult Romance
Release date: May 11th 2019
Evelyn Mercer has always had a plan. She lives and breathes the plan. The plan and coffee.
Go to law school. Check.
Make Law Review. Check.
Get competitive internship. Check.
Land dream job. Double Check.
That dream job? Yeah, it’s a nightmare, and Evelyn is miserable with a capital M. When she reaches her misery threshold, Evelyn does the unthinkable and deviates from her plan.
Her unexpected new job takes her to Pinehaven Ranch in the middle of nowhere Montana where Evelyn is faced with her biggest obstacle yet. No coffee shops within a 30-mile radius and her new boss’ brother, former rodeo champion Jack Danvers. The three words that best describe Jack are stink, stank, stunning. He is perfection and he inexplicably seems to hate her on sight. But if there is one thing life has taught her, it’s that she still has a lot to learn and Montana is full of surprises.
This was such a great, fun and sweet story! According to Goodreads, it has 416 pages. I have no idea how I managed to read it so fast. I absolutely don’t know when time flew by! I devoured it!
Evelyn is a planner. She is obsessed with organizing things and much more. All things are well aligned in her world, even people or emotions have a certain place or a certain category they fit into. This until she realizes that somewhere on the line she did a mistake. Her career is not as amazing as she was expecting/planning it to be. Her current workplace lands her in Pinehaven, Montana, at her boss’ family ranch. A small town, with almost no lattes and no food delivery. This should be awful! Little did she expect to fit right in for the ranch life. She finds best friends (people friends and dogs and horses). And most of all, she did not expect to fall in love. The same goes for Jack. He has his own issues to deal with and having a city girl who appears to be one of his brother’s ladies does not help much.
I loved how their relationship evolved. They slowly discover one another and slowly begin to understand what is exactly between them. The story is told from Evelyn’s perspective, so we see more of her thoughts and her personal growth. It’s nice to see how she takes one step away from her plans, but in the same time, always keeping her professionalism. There is a great balance here and I like how the author kept both aspects well aligned. The secondary characters are a delight. This entire book was so fun to read!
I do have one small complain here. The ending came a bit too sudden. Some parts, especially in the beginning, felt dragged (it does not bother when you read those pages because it goes to the main character’s personality) in comparison with the sudden ending. I would explain, but … don’t want to spoil anything.
To sum up these thoughts, I’m giving 4 stars to “Everything Girl”, with my love and congratulations to the author for writing such a great story. I feel I am too harsh with my rating, but all was so great and I really would have wanted more from the ending. I do hope you will give it a go. If you’re not one to read books over 400 pages, don’t feel intimidated. It’s an amazing ride 😊 Happy Reading!
“Maybe it was the wine and sleep deprivation but I found myself wondering what it would be like to be the girl he was searching the crowd for while waving in that picture. What If he was so isolated on that ranch that he actually thought I was hilarious and sexy not slightly awkward and shaped like a lumpy potato? I forced myself to stop daydreaming and continued my super healthy internet stalking.”
