4 STAR #Review and #Giveaway: The Suit by @BNTOLER

The Suit by BN Toler


What happens when two dreams collide? 

Fed up with the farm life and his one-time love of training horses, John Wilson has traded his tattered boots and jeans for power suits and cufflinks. Through hard work and determination, John has just graduated from law school and is focused on a fresh start. Refusing to let his bitter past hinder his future, John is intent on moving forward with his new life.

Except there’s one last thing he has to do—settle old debts before he can truly move on.
Unfortunately, settling debts involves him returning to a life he’s worked hard to forget. A mind-numbing summer working on a horse farm awaits him, and he’s dreading every damn minute of it. 

Edie James is mourning the loss of her grandfather when John Wilson shows up in his perfectly tailored suit, reeking sexiness and city elegance—everything she’s not. Their meeting is less than pleasant as they both distastefully size up one another. 

She thinks he’s arrogant and a white-collar yuppie. 

He thinks she’s a simple, goody two-shoes farm girl. 

Edie’s grandfather made a new will before he passed leaving stipulations in order for Edie to inherit the family farm. And as if that wasn’t enough of a challenge, the suit has to work on the farm with her for three months to settle a debt he owed to her grandfather. 

And he’s moving in with her. 

With a rocky start, the two seemingly polar opposites call a truce and attempt to be friends. As their unexpected friendship blooms, an attraction develops and both realize their first impression of each other is far from the truth. Now this once dreaded summer is set to be the hottest and most unforgettable they've ever had. 

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Who said book boyfriends have to exist solely in the book? Edie figures she can have her cake and eat it too! All she needs is a cute friend-with-benefits and a little role-playing and she’s got the recipe for a hot summer fling!

Edie may have passed up on college fun to help her grandfather run his horse farm, but she can’t regret doing something she loves this much. Unfortunately, one of the negatives of living in a small town is that it’s very easy to be pegged as a certain kind of person and Edie is the good girl—the girl you marry, not the girl you hook up with. Which sounds fine unless you just want to have some fun.

John has done everything he can to escape his famlly’s horse training legacy after his father shattered his fond memories when he tanked the family farm. John only has one obligation left before he can put the past behind him and pursue his career as a lawyer in New York City.

When Edie and John realize they’ll be forced to spend the summer together whether they like it or not, they decide to make the most of it and indulge in their physical attraction for each other. They both understand that it’s for one summer only and there are no strings attached. With John, Edie can keep her good girl reputation and explore her naughty side all at once.

THE SUIT is a fun romantic story about letting down your walls and admitting what turns you on. It’s a perfect story for all the readers out there who leave the fun stuff in their imagination instead of merging all the ideas into their real life. THE SUIT has a familiar feel to it while exploring something completely original. The only thing keeping THE SUIT from a 5 star rating for me is that intangible something that makes me obsess about the characters—the grit and appeal that make the book unforgettable. THE SUIT is fun and romantic and easy to read but it didn’t give me that extra oomph that made me gaga over it.

THE SUIT is an enjoyable new adult romance that will make you feel good and fly through it. It’s original, warm, and satisfying.
