When Sarah Sullivan’s perfect life blows up in front of her, she finds herself crawling back to the one place she never saw herself returning: Home.
At thirty-one, Sarah had it all. Perfect job, perfect boyfriend, perfect life. When all that is taken away from her, she is left heartbroken and angry and desperate enough to let her life swallow her whole…for a while.
Fending off love and the pursuit of happiness completely, Sarah vows to pick up the pieces of her shattered life. She creates a list of goals for herself—starting with a much needed shower—and constructs a plan to dig herself out of her rut. What she doesn’t plan for is meeting the arrogant new employee her parents have hired to work on an addition to their home. Enter Jack Calloway, the handsome, charming, lickable foreman with an insatiable effect on Sarah’s girly parts.
Jack accepts the job, but gets more than he bargained for. Unable to ignore his racing hormones—and calm his temper—over the obnoxious woman who clouds his judgment, Jack pulls her in and steals her heart until she finally surrenders. But is he up for the challenge of picking up the pieces of Sarah’s broken heart? Can he carry her out of her rut?
Life in a Rut, Love Not Included begins when Sarah's whole world comes crashing down around her. Now three months later living at home with her parents she ends up meeting a man she can't stop thinking about. The problem with this man is he's a major jerk and she's not ready to be around people.
But fate has other plans for both of these two people. Sarah decides it's time to stop feeling sorry for herself, and get back in the world. Although it's really slow going for her, and Jack, the hottie jerk, decides that he's going to help Sarah. These two form a fast relationship that has them both plunging head first into the deep end!
I really enjoyed reading this book. I loved the humor in the story, and I loved Jack and Sarah's relationship. I will say however, that in the beginning it was kind of boring and hard to get into, but once I got past that the humor came out quickly, and it was a fun interesting journey to get tot he end.
So, overall I liked the book. The plot line was good, and the characters were a riot! And it ends with a wonderful HEA, that leaves you with the warm and fuzzies!
