Julian's Pursuit by Haleigh Lovell Review + Giveaway


She is the cold and unfeeling Ice Queen at the corporate office.
He is the ex-baller and reformed player who wants her.
It is pulsing between them, the sexual energy reaching for each other, seeking to entwine

Let the pursuit begin.

NOTE: Standalone novel, no cliffhanger, dual POV.

I stroked his leg under the table with my foot. “Oh,” I moaned, making my voice airy and breathless. “Is the food orgasmic?”

He smiled, a curve of his sculpted mouth. “You enjoy torturing me, don’t you?”
Yes, I did. I took great pleasure in watching him squirm when I gave him blue veined throbbers out in public. And I found it especially amusing when he told me he pictured playing mini golf with his grandmother whenever he had to tame the rumbling in his loins.

“Why?” I lowered my voice and feigned innocence. “Do you have a hard-on right now?”
Grinning with just enough arrogance to make him look sexy, he reclined in his seat and said coolly, “Nah. That’s my dick normally. Huge, right?”

“You poor thing.” My shoulders lifted with laughter. “Is your stiffy giving you a hernia? 

Don’t worry, all you need to do is tuck and duck and I’ll try not to laugh.”

“Miss Frost,” he chided “behave yourself.”


I rated Julian's Pursuit FIVE LEAVES!!!
Julian's Pursuit features Julian, Vivian’s brother from Vivian’s List and Liam’s List. I have always wondered about Julian since Vivian’s List, where we meet Julian for the first time. He isn’t really in the two previous books, but I loved how he was such a great big brother to Vivian. You couldn’t help wondering about him and his story.  

This is a standalone novel so you do not need to read Vivian’s List and Liam’s List but if I were you, I would! I absolutely love Haleigh Lovell’s writing.  I find her books contain the most beautiful characters who I easily fall in love with and this story was no exception.  I cherished the characters in this book and found the story to be one the sweetest that I have read in a while.
 The first thing I wanted to comment about this new book by Haleigh is that the male character is not overly dramatic and he’s not hiding anything major. He is just a normal guy; that is totally swoon worthy.  I feel Haleigh’s writing is so mature and easy to read. 
This book is about Julian quitting the army and starting to work in advertising where he meets Sadie Frost.  Sadie is a single mom with a six year old son, Evan.  Evan has some medical problems since birth and she needs to be strong for him.  Sadie is a hard person to crack open.  She has her walls built up so high that no one is ever going to try to tear them down.  Julian is the perfect guy to break the walls down.

Julian is an easy guy to like. Not only is he a good-looking guy but his personality and humor are what find you the most attractive.  Julian and Sadie both had pasts that are horrible but they are strong characters and they are able to show the world they are so much more than that. My favorite thing about Sadie is her feistiness!
Julian’s Pursuit is such a sexy, emotional story that I completely devoured! You will be turning the last page with a satisfied smile but you will be craving more of Julian and Sadie.
