where i need to be ~ Jamie Hollins ~ New Release and Review

How can their relationship survive when it’s built on half-truths? 

McKenna Series #3
Jamie Hollins
Releasing July 18, 2017

When heroin stole James Foley’s wife and destroyed his marriage, he poured all his energy into raising his young son and running his auto garage. There’s no room in his life for anything else until Megan McKenna walks into his shop. He finds it impossible to resist the sexy school teacher.

After an ugly divorce, Megan lost her home, her job, and a big chunk of her self-respect. With her posh lifestyle now a memory, she starts over by indulging in an unexpected fling with a hard-bodied mechanic.

What begins as something casual turns into something meaningful. But how can their relationship survive when it’s built on half-truths? 

James and Megan soon discover that being honest with themselves is just as important as being honest with each other. Only then will their relationship fire on all cylinders.


Jamie Hollins was born and raised in rural Northeast Ohio.  After graduate school, she embarked on a perilous career in Human Resources where she met plenty of real life characters.  When she’s not writing or chasing after her toddler, she enjoys reading and golfing.  Jamie lives in Pennsylvania with her husband, son, and their dog, Winston.

This is my first Jamie Hollins book and having read it, I am sorry I haven't discovered her before.
Megan McKenna is struggling in the aftermath of her divorce when she meets James Foley. The journey that follows is a well crafted exploration of how two wounded people can find their second chances at love and happily ever after.

While their relationship isn't smooth, they do have some wonderfully sweet moments. Both Megan and James grow throughout the story and are people that are easy to like and root for.
Reading Megan's story makes me want to go back and read the earlier McKenna books by Ms. Hollins.
