Once Enchanted (Rockland Ranch #3) by Jaclyn Hawkes + a Giveaway!

What happened to her fairytale life? She's young, she's sharp, she's the hardest working attorney in the whole LA office. Still, when Alexis O'Brien finally gets brutally honest with herself, she has to admit she's nothing more than a glorified workhorse for her boss and his slippery partners. Her dissatisfaction only deepens when she gets sent on a wild goose chase to rural Wyoming to find some elusive gifted architect for a project she thinks is corrupt. Then she meets Sean Rockland. The antithesis of the effeminate manicured types she's used to at work, with his muscles fairly rippling under his button down, Sean ticks her off from the very first moment she lays eyes on him as he's rescuing her from car trouble-which only makes him laugh. Of course that doesn't help. Sean has this way of calmly logically encouraging her to face her issues that makes her even madder. Why does he always have to be right? Why is she drawn to him anyway? What's up with all these crazy fairies appearing? And why can't she find the darned missing architect? When her spitfire meets his steel sparks begin to fly!

I just loved the opening of this book when Alexis and Sean meet for the first time.  Sparks are flying from the very beginning and you just cannot help but like both Alexis and Sean.

Sean is definitely a manly man.  But I also like that he is known and respected in his community.  He works hard and dreams big.

If you've read any of the other books in this Rockland Ranch series, you know that the Rockland clan is big, loud and so, so generous.  Everyone who meets them falls in love with the lifestyle and family loyalty they offer.  Poor Alexis never had a chance and she didn't even know it!

I have really enjoyed this series so far.  It was nice to get a glimpse of the rest of the characters I enjoyed in past books.  This book was probably my favorite of the bunch.  Most of the book I wanted to smack my forehead for the awful lack of communication between Sean and Alexis.  They sure didn't do very well at expressing their feelings and communicating.  Well, except when they were kissing.  I think there was a lot of expression there.  hee hee

This is an LDS fiction book.  There is religious doctrine and talk in it.  It is also squeeky clean reading.

My thanks to the author for allowing me to read and review books for her.  It's a great pleasure for me.  She has also generously provided for this giveaway.  Awesome!

You can purchase this book on Amazon.
