REVIEW: Getting Out of Hand by Erin Nicholas (Sapphire Falls #1)


Getting Out of Hand (Sapphire Falls #1)
Author: Erin Nicholas
Genre: Romance, Contemporary
Release Date: August 7th 2014

ISBN13: 9780991557912


Genius scientist Mason Riley can cure world hunger, impress the media and piss off the Vice President of the United States all before breakfast. But he’s not sure he can get through his high school class reunion.

Then he meets the new girl in town.

Adrianne Scott loves Sapphire Falls. The sleepy little town has been the perfect place to escape her fast-paced, high stress lifestyle. Her only plans now include opening her candy shop and living a quiet, drama-free life.

Until Mason Riley bids four hundred dollars just to dance with her.

Mason sure doesn’t look—or kiss—like a genius scientist geek. In fact, he makes Adrianne’s heart pound like nothing she’s ever experienced. Passion like this with a guy who travels the world and parties at the White House should probably be a red flag for a girl who wants a simple boring life.

Good thing no one falls in love in a weekend.

I can’t even begin to tell you how much this book made me smile. Heartwarming with lots sizzle is exactly how I would describe it. I won’t fluff this book up and tell you it was the most amazing dang book I’ve ever read, but it -was- a really good book. I would definitely recommend it to those that enjoy a good love story.

Mason is rich, intelligent, witty, straight forward, and he just wants to do his job! So when his best friend tells him to leave, literally, and get out of Chicago for awhile, he heads back to his hometown, Sapphire Falls. This is a guy who hasn’t been back in years, has no reason to go back and basically suffered one of the most humiliating moments of his life there. He’s grown up, matured and made a success of himself and now they want -him-. He just wants to save the world one tomato seed at a time, not deal with all the political hoopla.

Adrianne is originally from Chicago herself. This woman comes from a fast-paced, incredibly stressful world, where it’s nothing but go-go-go and I’m not just talking about her job. Her whole lifestyle and society just doesn’t let up. Then something happens to her that makes her flee Chicago and that way of life. She ends up in Sapphire Falls, learns to love denim, and a completely laid back way of life instead.

I can’t say these two meet with a bang and go up in smoke, but Mason does waltz in and pay $400 for three dances with Adrianne. She knows exactly who he is and he doesn’t know her at all because she’s a new face in town. (At least for him) She’s also intriguing however, and sees through all the political what-not around him. She actually sees -him-, the guy that likes to watch plants grow and play in the dirt. He comes to understand her, and she just makes things click for him, often at the most random times. (It’s a good thing she keeps a pen handy!) This leads to some twists and turns along the way. They fall in love, but that love is tested and it’s interesting to see how they both handle the issues that stand in their way.
