内容紹介

Jim Morgan is living the life he always wanted. He's a promising young entertainment lawyer, on the verge of representing the Hollywood elite, and engaged to Emily, a beautiful, smart lawyer at his firm. He's so happy, he almost doesn't think about Amanda, the girl who ripped his heart out 8 years ago.

But one phone call changes all that, taking Jim from the glitz of Los Angeles to the small town of Ashford, Alabama, to save Amanda from going to prison. But Jim knows he'll need help, so he's bringing the best criminal defense lawyer he knows: Emily, his fiancee.

Jim and Amanda's last chapter has yet to be written. And with Emily in the mix, how can this possibly end well?

Jim meets the love of his life, Amanda,while he is working at a club as a bouncer. Amanda soon moves in with Jim and all is going smoothly until Jim receives a letter to inform him he's been accepted into Harvard Law.
Jim decides to ask Amanda to marry him but she tells him shes leaving that day because shes been seeing someone else. Eight years on, Jim has never really gotten over Amanda however he is now engaged to Emily a criminal lawyer that works in the same firm as him. Out of the blue Amanda calls. She's in trouble and needs a lawyer. Jim goes to her aid and Emily goes too,not wanting Jim to be alone with Amanda. Emily doesn't like Amanda, which is only natural. But everyone who meets Amanda eventually falls in love with her beauty and spontaneous nature. She is fun to be around.Emily is not immune to Amanda's charm and is now determined to get her off the charge without a jail sentence. How strong are Jim's feelings for Amanda? Will Emily's attack on the towns DA make matters worse for Amanda? What is Amanda keeping secret from everyone?

I know it's so cliche but, I couldn't put this book down. I was thinking, I really should be going to bed. No, I'll just read one more chapter. OK, I'll just read another chapter and so it went on late into the night.
Everyone loves Amanda.I found myself loving Amanda too. She had a tragic life yet she was happy and carefree (on the outside anyway).She loved Jim so much she had to let him go.
Emily the tough go get them lawyer, but really a caring sweetheart underneath that tough exterior. I think some of Emily's decisions were out of character. I would have liked to see her warm to Amanda but retain her straight laced image.
I wasn't sure about the introduction of Kyle. I was thinking all the time, is this going somewhere,is he somehow relevent to the story.
Even though the outcome of the story was guessed very early on I still needed to have it verified and couldn't stop reading until it was there in front of me in black and white.
I usually read a novel wondering where the tiltle fits in but I was so engrossed I'd completely forgotten about the title until the line dancing comment popped up in the book. Ahhh The Benefits of Line Dancing.

A very enjoyable read. Well done Edward Shull. Looking forward to reading more.

Full Disclosure - I received this book in a giveaway. But that doesn’t have an impact on my review.

This is a love-triangle with a fish-out-of-water twist. Two LA lawyers head down south to defend his ex-girlfriend. There are the usual plot devices for this type of story, but where the book really stands out is dialogue and character development. I honestly can’t remember the last time I read a book that had such a grasp on its characters. By the end of the book I was in love with these people.

The dialogue is extremely well written. It’s witty and captures the voice of the characters, as you’d expect them to be. I like that the Southerners are not portrayed as just rednecks and idiots. Their intelligence comes through equal to their LA counterparts.

Despite the fact I found the basic plot to be contrived and predictable, I really enjoyed this book. To be honest, it’s one of the best first books I’ve read. I’m looking forward to Shull’s next book.

Summary: Eight years after Amanda broke his heart, Jim has found love again with Emily, a criminal defense lawyer. But when Amanda calls needing a lawyer, Jim can't stop himself from helping her, and Emily is along for the ride. They head out to small-town Alabama, where all three grow to understand love, life, and friendship.

Review: It is rare for a debut author to have a good first book. However, I was very impressed with Shull's foray into the world of fiction.

I enjoyed the characters the most. Amanda, Jim, and Emily are not the perfect individuals you see in chick flicks. Rather, they are flawed individuals trying to survive what life throws at them. The characters' struggles and questions are similar to what we go through in our lives. Shull made the character's relatable, and therefore, enjoyable. The characters cannot hide from the reality of their emotions. Jim has to face both his feelings from the past that still exist, and his feelings for the future. Amanda has to deal with her uncertain future. Emily has to deal with a fate no one prepared her for. These relationships are messy but natural.

The overall story was sweet, in its own gritty way. The story was not a typical tiresome love triangle. The love triangle was complex, with multiple layers to each relationship. Some of it was predictable--I knew from the prologue what Amanda's fate was. There was only one way for the story to end. However, that's not the point. This book is about the journey, and it was unique and thought provoking.

I had some issues with the writing. In the first third of the book, the writing felt choppy. It read more like script, especially during conversations. It ruined the pace of the reading. But the middle and end of the book flowed much better. Also, there was no consistent POV through some of the conversations. It's terribly confusing to the reader when we jump POVs from Emily to Jim to Kyle back to Jim all on the same page. Also, the female leads did appear a little bit like a caricature. I wish we saw more juxtaposition within their own personalities--More of Emily's vulnerable side and more of Amanda's strength. It would have added to the complexity.

This is the kind of book you take with you to the beach. You absorb the story as you absorb the summer sun. I applaud Shull for his debut, and I'm looking forward to reading more of his stories!

Sex: kissing, involved make outs, some self love references. Low key.
Violence: N/A

Rating: 3.5 stars out of 5

Quote:
"My parents own the place."
"Wow, that's cool," Amanda said.
"Oh, the coolest," the girl drooled. "Later today, you might see me scrubbing your toilet and making your bed."

5つ星のうち 4.0 Good story, Great characters 2014/7/29
投稿者 Michael Allen Bright - (Amazon.com)

Jim Morgan is a Harvard bound law student who dates Amanda, a flaky art student. The two have a bad break up, brought on by Amanda’s fear of losing Jim? It doesn't really make a lot of sense in the beginning and to be honest I wasn't sure I was going to like this book after the first chapter. But something happens as the story moves to the small Southern town of Ashford, Alabama. New characters come in to the story and things really get better. I feel like the Kyle character is sort of shoe-horned into the story, but his likability and comic relief makes it work in the end. This is a 3 star story with 5 star characters. "

I was given this book through a giveaway on NPR. I had higher hopes for a book they recommend. The characters are sometimes unbelievable and over the top. Like the gay TV star who has nothing better to do than run down south to see his lawyer.

The ending was also very easy to predict. It’s not exactly sixth sense.

That being said, there are very funny parts of the book. The Karaoke scene made me laugh a lot. And the end was very sad and extremely well written. I’ll admit I cried. It’s worth checking out, but I don’t think it’s as great as they made it sound.
