Let It Go by Brooklyn James

Savannah Bondurant, a marriage and relationship columnist for the Savannah Sun Times, just signed her divorce papers. 

Brody McAlister, the elusive and smoking hot gym boy, has finally recovered from his divorce three years ago. 

Be it spurred by loneliness or sheer attraction, the two slip into the sheets for a memorable one-night stand. 

Savannah's pesky ex-husband continues to try and worm his way back into her life, insisting they remain friends, even though he is living with his jealous new girlfriend. 

An up-and-coming woodworker artist, Brody has every socialite cougar in town promising him success and riches, for a price, of course. 

With two advice-giving older sisters, one fiercely single and one seemingly happily married, Savannah learns her parents' long and successful relationship does not come without its own secrets. Why should she believe in happily ever after? 

Her constant overanalyzing and skepticism bodes well in her profession as a journalist, but proves counterproductive in her personal life. Divorce, guilt, suspicion, holding on to the past—can Savannah trust in Brody to help her Let It Go..

Samantha and Brody - two lost souls not sure where their destination lies.  Brody's been divorced for a few years and he isn't keen on getting burned again.  He doesn't want commitment, but he doesn't have any trouble getting the ladies - especially with his good looks.   Samantha is recently divorced and isn't looking for any relationship at this point in her life.  But she can't help but admire the hunky man in the gym and when he leaves his number on her windshield, she's very tempted.

It's quirky that Samantha is a marriage and advice columnist.  But they say a doctor is his worst patient, and that same adage seems to be the case with this particular advice columnist because she throws caution to the wind and winds up with a one night stand with Brody.  However, she can't get him out of her mind, nor he her.  But Samantha needs to let go of the past if she is to have any sort of future with Brody.  But can she? Or will she her past rule her future?

Let It Go is a steamy romance with realistic characters.  James has a gift with writing that will pull you into the lives of these two wandering souls.  I have read James' work before, so I knew I was in for a treat, and I wasn't disappointed.  The pages just flew by! If you enjoy some spice with your romance, definitely pick up Let It Go!

The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.
