Review & Giveaway: Someone Like You by Jennifer Gracen
SOMEONE LIKE YOU
The Harrison's #2
Releasing April 26th, 2016
A ZEBRA SHOUT FRESH NEW ROMANCE
Pierce Harrison—yes, that Pierce Harrison, black sheep of the wealthy Harrison clan—has come home to his family’s luxurious Long Island compound. The big question is why the dangerously sexy soccer star agreed to coach a kids’ soccer team. His co-coach Abby McCord should be grateful. Instead she’s fending off some seriously smoldering advances from the scandal-ridden athlete. Good thing bad boys are so not her type . . .
Abby is definitely not lacking in passion, but the sweet-faced beauty needs to learn a thing or two about taking a team to the championship—and a whole lot about how to let a man into her once-broken heart. Pierce definitely knows how to make the moves, but will Abby trust that the bachelor the world has condemned as a scoundrel can settle down with the one woman who has taken hold of his heart?
Jennifer Gracen hails from Long Island, New York, where she lives with her two young sons. After spending her youth writing in private and singing in public, she now only sings in her car and has fully embraced her lifelong passion for writing. She loves to write contemporary romance and romantic women’s fiction for readers who yearn for better days, authentic characters, and satisfying endings. When she isn’t taking care of her kids, doing freelance copy editing/proofreading, reading, or talking to friends on Twitter and Facebook, Jennifer writes. She’s shocked her family hasn’t yet staged an intervention for her addiction to social media. But the concerts she gives in her car and the dance parties she has in her kitchen are rumored to be fabulous.

I had mixed feelings about this book. As a whole, I really enjoyed it. There are just certain moments that I wasn't as pleased with it as I wished I was. Of course, that's okay, I like books that make me feel, it's better then closing the book at the end of the story and saying "that's nice", who wants that?
I really loved Pierce but didn't really get why he was thought of so badly for just having a good time. Yes, maybe he should have stayed away from married women, but who cares how many ladies he slept with. He was single at the time...
I'm a huge fan of men who love kids and don't mind being around them and Pierce was perfect at it.
Now his family was a different story. Sure they didn't totally forget about him when he moved away but I didn't get how they didn't really care about how badly he was treated by his father till the end of the book. It really stuck in my craw.
A big sore spot!
Now I didn't think as highly of Abby as I did of Pierce. I thought he was more honest about his feelings and actions then her. I get that she was very hurt over a past relationship but, really!!! how much of a relationship was it???
See, I told you...this book made me feel! :)
There is so much more that happens but I don't want to ruin the story for you. You really need to find out all this on your own. I so badly want to say more!!! Ha! Believe me, even with the few things that frosted my ass, there are a ton of things I really liked about the story too! I think you'll find this to be a very quick read that will leaving with wanting more of the Harrison family.
If you've read, Someone Like You or any other book by Jennifer Gracen I'd love to hear your thoughts. Thanks for visiting and happy reading!
