{Romance Review} Meant For Her by Raine Thomas

{Romance Review} Meant For Her by Raine Thomas

Meant for Her
Photographer Sierra Stratton views the world through a lens all her own. She has an uncanny sense about people, something that often causes her trouble. When she meets the sexy and brooding Evan Dorsey, her intuition tells her he’s suffering, and she wants to be the one to help him.

Evan isn’t open to help from anyone, however. His focus is on his Major League career and making himself as marketable as possible for his upcoming free agency. He plans to ride out the season in Atlanta and then sign with another team, away from the painful memories that haunt him.

Someone’s eager to send him on his way, too. Between anonymous threats and equipment sabotage, it’s clear he’s earned himself an enemy along the way. To him, it’s one more sign that he’s right to move on.

But Sierra threatens his conviction. Her contagious smile proves hard to resist, as does her kiss. She tempts him in ways he never anticipated, making him question his plans for the first time. If he’s not careful, she might just convince him that he’s meant for her. (Blurb via Goodreads)

{Rating} 4/5 -- I really liked it

"A drunk woman fell into Evan's lap about two hours into the wedding reception." (page 1, line 1)
I adored Raine Thomas's For Everly so I was very excited to read Meant For Her. I thought it was a sweet love story with a bit of intrigue, a charming heroine and a surly hero with an Aussie accent.

Sierra is a great heroine, I'd want to be BFFs with her. She's a smart, accomplished, confident, independent woman. She's kind and generous, selfless. She's a giver. She's a fixer. She meets Evan and knows that he is meant for her. Only he doesn't know it. Yet.

Evan is our wounded hero with the aforementioned Aussie accent. He doesn't put down roots - he doesn't even want to put pictures up on the wall - and he doesn't get attached. And then Sierra infiltrates his life, she's next door, she's with his dogs, making him feel things, face things, want things. It's not easy for Sierra to get through to him, never was there a guy who resisted falling in love as much as Evan.

We get to see familiar characters from For Everly and one of my favorite couples, Cole and Everly. I enjoyed seeing them move forward in their relationship - some big milestones I won't spoil - but we also find out that Sierra had a role in their courtship.

I am eager to read Raine Thomas's next release.
