The only time she trusted someone with her heart, she was just a girl; he betrayed her and left her humiliated. Since then, Lorali Bennett has let that moment in time dictate her life.
Ian Hale, sexy as sin business mogul, has never had more than a passing interest in any particular woman, until a chance encounter with Lorali, leaves a lasting mark on him.
Their fast paced romance is one for the record books, but what will happen when Ian’s secrets come to light? Especially when those secrets will cost her everything she spent years trying to rebuild.
This is a standalone contemporary novel. The next book in the Hale series is Alexa and Garrett’s story: Begging for Hale.
Recommended for readers 18 and up due to strong language and explicit sexual content.
Holy. Hot. Sex. On. A. Stick. Coming To Hale was one smoking hot read. I’m not going to even try to lie. I went searching for my husband the second I finished reading, and thank god the kids were asleep because if I would have had to wait I am not sure I would have survived. Can you die from being horny? I’m not sure but I wasn’t taking the chance.
You never know when you will meet or possibly just see the one person who will ignite your heart or soul. You can meet when you are children, or in college or at a laundry mat. Cupid’s arrow doesn’t discriminate when love strikes and why would it? The chemistry between Ian and Lorali was explosive. Lorali had been hurt by her ex-boyfriend but that didn’t stop Ian, he kept at it and wasn’t going to give up. I think I found a new book boyfriend and his name is Ian! I just really liked everything about this book, there isn’t one thing that I can easily say didn’t work for me. I loved the sexiness, the humor, just everything!
I hit ARC gold with Coming To Hale, I had just had another run of bad luck reading and went in with the mindset of this will probably be another one of those meh books for me, but I was blown away. For a debut , this one is damn good, it shows the talent that this new author has and, I for one will be keeping an eye on Ms. James and her books because I have a feeling that Coming To Hale is just a hint of what she can do. I want the next book right away, so Ms. James if you are reading this you can just go ahead and sent it my way, I won’t tell ;)
Marie James, full-time working mother of two boys and wife of 11 years. I've spent almost my entire lifetime living in central Texas, with only short stays in South Carolina, Alabama, and Florida. I've always wanted to write novels and just recently had the gumption to sit down and start one. My passions include reading everything under the sun and sewing. I even listen to audio books while sewing. Coming to Hale is my debut novel and book 1 in the 4 book Hale Series. I have several other story lines worked out for other books once this series is complete. Reading and writing is my happy place. Hope you enjoy my debut novel.
