Beautiful Ties is the fourth book in the ‘Beautiful’ series by Alicia Rae and is Abby Kyle’s sister and Jason Johnson Lily’s cousin’s story. I have to admit I had been meaning to read this one for a while and after receiving an Arc of the fifth book in the series A Beautiful Thought. I knew I had to read this one first as I can’t read books out of order even if they can be read as standalone.
“Love happens when you least expected”
Abby work alongside her brother, she is hard working, smart, sexy and fun. She's looking for love as she is ready to settle down, and when she meets Johnson the attraction is instant, but Jason has just started work with her brother, which means that their relationship should be kept profession, however she soon discovers this is easier said that done.
Jason is tall, sexy, smart and very charming. He likes Abby; as soon as he saw her, she instantly captivated him. He wants her, and he is determined to show her with his sweet charm that you can mix business with pleasure.
I really enjoyed the storyline, told from Abby’s Pov. I was a sweet sexy romantic read. I liked Jason and Abby they worked well together. It was funny and sweet to see how Jason went about proving to Abby that they would be good together, how he starts to break down her guard. That man was determined I can tell you, I like the way their relationship developed, it was fast-moving, but it works for them you couldn’t deny their attraction and chemistry that they had.
Overall, I really enjoyed this one. Like the rest of the previous books Alicia Rae hooked from the start, it’s a well written, well-paced sweet sexy story perfect read for a Sunday morning. I liked the secondary story about regarding Abby’s relationship with Pearl it was touching to read, and Pearl was such a cute character. Love how the previous main charters are woven into the story, always nice to know what is happening in their lives.
If you love romance stories that will l pull at your heart about family and friendships, with likeable characters that are low on the drama and angst, but has plenty of the sexy steamy then this one is for you.
Now that I have finished this one I’m excited to move straight onto A Beautiful Thought, which will be Gail Bennett Abby’s best friend and Lily’s cousin Damon Johnson’ s story.
“Whatever this is between us… I don’t ever want it to end.”
“My mind was reeling, and I had butterflies in my stomach. In that instant, I decided to hand over the cards to fate, opening myself to whatever it might bring, as embraced this moment”
“This man was turning my insides into a bundle of nerves. Resisting his charms would surely be the end of me”
“Got to break down those steel barriers of yours somehow, and coffee is the way to your heart”
“I realized I was holding the possibility of us at bay, because I was scared. I was afraid of what I felt for him, especially in such a short time”
“I don’t know what this is between us, Abbey, but I have never felt this way about anyone before. I’m drawn to you with your beauty, your laugh your smile”
“Life is too short to live your life by what-if”
“The things you make me feel inside and the way you look at me as though I’m all you see makes the word love seem as if it's not enough to describe what I feel for you”
