Always Been You by Melanie Shawn Book Summary

Lately, Jessa Myers has been batting a thousand in the dating game. No exaggeration, it's brutal out there. But, she's not giving up. Doesn't matter how much she loves Elvis Pawsley and Marilyn Purroe, Jessa's determined not to become the spinster town cat lady.

Only one problem: No guy has yet to live up to her childhood crush/teenage infatuation/adult obsession, Ethan Steele. The big, bad, brooding U.S. Marshal is yes, ridiculously hot, but also way too overprotective. It's that way with everyone who knew her before her long-awaited heart transplant. They all get the same hyper-worried look when she so much as sneezes still. Sure, intense hulk-growl concern is swoony and all, but she wants a man to see her as more than that girl she once was.

So, if that means she needs to settle for someone not nearly as knee-wobbling as Ethan, then that's just what she needs to do...

Lately, Ethan's been at his wits' end. No exaggeration, loving Jessa for as long as he can remember hasn't been easy. But, she's worth it. Doesn't matter how much she insists that his mere existence in her past means zero possibility of a future for them, he's not giving up.

Only one problem: Jessa's been dating loser after loser to try and find her Mr. Perfect to one day marry, probably have more cats with, and a long happy future. She just refuses to believe Kade doesn't see her as the girl he once worried over. No, the only thing worrying him now is the stubborn beauty he's crazy in love with continuing to let her head overrule her heart and slipping out of his life for good.

So yes, asking Jessa to be his temporary fake girlfriend to avoid the very real incessant matchmaking they both endure isn't the most brilliant plan ever, but if it means they'll get their chance at forever, then that's just what he needs to do...

Stand-alone Whisper Lake romance, complete with HEA--and plenty of heat and heart along the way!

Author's Note: Always Been You was previously published as Whisper of Surrender

Always Been You (Melanie Shawn) Book Reviews

Soooo great!I feel like I say this every single time I read a new book by Melanie Shawn, but Whisper of Surrender is my new favorite! Gosh I fell so hard for Ethan!!! He was the perfect alpha man who wasn’t too overbearing. And Jess! Oh my gosh I want her as a bestie. She’s hysterical, strong, sassy, feisty and fierce! I absolutely adored her! Their chemistry was insanely hot and their story was so great. Watching them both get their happily ever after was a joy to read! Definitely recommend! Happy reading!.Score: 5/5

Always Been YouLoved this great story! Sweet, sexy, and oh so romantic!.Score: 5/5

Always Been YouI really tried to like the heroine in the story, but she acted like a 13 year old, which is never attractive on a 28-year-old woman. The hero was written pretty well, but I could not take a liking to the female lead. I could not finish the book..Score: 1/5

Whisper Lake is where you are going to want to spend your summer!Jessa Meyers never let herself think about forever before her heart transplant. When you don’t think you’ll have a future, it’s too painful to plan for one. But now that the stunning, blue-eyed beauty isn't “the sick girl” anymore, she’s determined to dream big and make those dreams come true. Ethan Steele knows that loving Jessa is a probably a losing proposition. She’s made it clear again and again over the years that she doesn’t want his attention. The sexy, brooding U.S. Marshall knows that a plan is the clearest path to success, and he has one: convince her to be his fake girlfriend for the summer. This is a wonderful summer by the pool, on vacation, beach read. You will be swept up in the lives of these two wonderful characters and you will find yourself immersed in their lives and invested in their happily ever after. This book has the right combination of heart, laughter, love, friendship and just enough of the sexy times to keep things spicy. You Willapa not be sorry you picked this book. It can be read as a standalone but you really should read the first book (Whisper of Love) in the series because Whisper Lake is a magical place that you won’t be able to get enough of..Score: 5/5

A must read!!!This book has just become my favorite Melanie Shawn read!!! It’s a bit deeper than any of their other books, and will tug at your heartstrings as Jess and Ethan pave the path to their HEA. I loved Jess. She’s strong, independent, and feisty as all get out. Ethan is sexy with a side of broody added to it. The two of them heat up the pages of this newest read, and will have you wanting more from these fantastic authors!!!
