This was my first book by N.D. Jackson but OMG it won’t be my last! I just went and bought the first three in the series and can’t wait to dive into them.
Trixie grew up living a different lifestyle than most people, spending some of her life as part of a commune and maybe a little hippie. She is the type of woman though who can light up the entire room with just one smile. She has an energy about her that draws you to her and makes you feel like you want to be part of that world with her in it. Her last relationship has left her feeling uneasy and unsure of herself.
Jack is the hot and sexy kind of man that will make your knees weak! He was married to the love of his life and has two beautiful children. He had what everyone perceived as a once in a lifetime love that was ended too soon by tragedy. He has devoted his whole life to his sweet girls and that’s all he has room for and never wants to experience “love” again. He holds on to a secret that he just can’t allow anyone to find out about, especially now.
Trixie always had a crush on Jack as children but she was just the annoying little girl next door he never really saw. When she moves back to Mustang Prairie and they encounter each other for the first time it’s not in the greatest setting and both are taken aback. They soon discover there is an undeniable chemistry between them and boy is the sex hot! Spending time as friends with benefits is just what Jack thinks he needs and wants, but can Trixie do casual and cut off? What happens when two people have different wants and desires?
It Must Be Love is a beautiful story about how two people have an idea of what love is but soon discover that maybe they really have no clue at all. Sometimes when you have had a life filled with disappointment in the love department, you realize that maybe it’s because it was all leading you to the one you truly belong with, but is that the case with these two? Is there anything there past lust, desire, and fun? Can they overcome their past to find a future together? Only time will tell and you’ll have to read the book.
ND Jackson does a wonderful job of bringing you the visualization of what is going on. You can see the bluest skies, the hot bodies, the way the clothes fit. You can feel what is happening and find yourself laughing and crying. I love that the author uses enough details but doesn’t overdue it where it becomes long and boring and you are just sitting there waiting for the dang point. I love that the author builds several relationships and explores those, not just a potential love story but the friendships, the families, and everything in between. This book felt like a community and a community that anyone would want to be part of. I’m hoping we get to see more of these characters in follow up books.
