READ AND REVIEW
CAN'T RESIST HIM(RIVER BEND # 4) BY MOLLY MCLAIN
Release Date: September 15, 2015
Sometimes what you want and what you need are two very different things.
Always relegated to the "friends with benefits" corner of small town River Bend, Jenny Riley is done giving the milk for free. Falling hard for a bad boy? Not in the plan, either.
Sexy, emotionally-wounded Marine Reservist Brody Nelson just needs someone to lend an ear. A friend. Friends to lovers? That's more than he bargained for.
Neither wants a relationship. A long distance friendship should be enough.
Warning: This books contains a tattooed, pierced hero with a few surprises up his sleeve...and a hella sexy one down his pants.
REVIEW: CAN'T RESIST HIM (RIVER BEND # 4) BY MOLLY MCLAIN
Can't Resist Him by Molly McLain
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Can't Resist Him a moving turn on a friends to lovers relationship. Molly McLain did a exquisite job of guiding the readers through this impassioned story of hope, absolution, maturity and tenderness. Brody and Jenny did not have an easy road. Painful experiences caused each to close their hearts to emotional upheaval. The fact that these two characters did not start off as anything more than acquaintances and slowly progressed to friendship, then love is what sealed the deal for me. Trust had to be built, a relationship had to be formed and love had to grow. I loved that because you normally do not see that within romances. I was blessed to receive an ARC in exchange for an honest review. Can't Resist Him is emotional but valuable read.

About Author: Molly McLain
Like many novelists, especially romance writers, my infatuation with a good love story began early. I don’t remember exactly how old I was, but I’ll admit that Barbie and Ken acted more than a couple of the story lines I had in my head (sorry, Mom, but, no, not all of them were kid-appropriate). The obsession continued to grow as I got older and, whenever I left home, I always had a wire-bound notebook and a blue ballpoint pen in hand. In fact, every August, I still get that goofy, schoolgirl itch to buy up oodles of pens and paper, because, while I love my laptop, nothing compares to writing long-hand. If the house is quiet and there’s a thunderstorm rumbling outside, even better.
Not that I have the slightest a clue what a quiet house is anymore. Having three rambunctious (but awesome) kids, a zippy dog and a pesky cat has completely blurred my memory of peace and quiet. Oh, and I have a husband too–I call him the FisherGuy–and he’s probably louder and crazier than all the rest. I think I’ll keep him though. After all, he keeps me in fresh fish year-round (yum!) and he’s good hero material. Did I mention he’s also a firefighter?
We live in Northern Wisconsin and, let me tell ya, living here has provided lots of small-town fodder for this writer’s overactive imagination. Of course, I know no one who’s lived anything close to the steamy experiences I write about (not that I’d tell ya if I did *wink*). There’s something inherently sexy about not knowing what goes on behind closed doors…or even better, letting my imagination run free, concocting all kinds of stories and scenarios and putting them down on paper. Or my laptop.
2014 is going to be a big year for me, as I debut my first novel early in the spring and the majority of the remaining series as the year goes on. I’ll also be releasing at least one, hopefully two, books in a second series. Both are set in small towns and both will feature smart, spunky heroines and sexy, smokin’ hot heroes. Oh, and romance…sometimes sweet and sometimes sizzling.
