ARC Review: Caught Up in You by Jules Bennett

Title: Caught Up in You

Author: Jules Bennett


The Monroe brothers have their differences, but one project unites them: turning an antebellum mansion in their Haven, Georgia, hometown into a peaceful spa. It was the dream of their late sister—and it’s about to set off a major renovation in the life of middle brother Braxton…

Braxton Monroe’s taking a break from teaching to do some strenuous work on a Civil War–era house, and feeling the strain in every rock-hard muscle. Good thing he has to interview massage therapists for the spa—even if it’s embarrassing to meet a job candidate in his boxers. Cora Buchanan has hands so talented—and a voice so sultry—he wants to hire her before he even lifts his head from the table. But he’s shocked to meet her outside the massage room—with her seeing-eye dog, Heidi the yellow lab.

Cora has left her family—and fiancĂ©—in Atlanta to make her way in this small town. All her parents’ money can’t restore her sight, but it’s up to her to restore her independence. Though she bristles at Braxton’s protectiveness, she too feels lingering effects from their intimate touch. Now that he’s her boss, it’s strictly hands-off….Until a secret she’s keeping destroys his fragile trust, and they must find the courage to knock down the walls between them.


I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.

5 out of 5 stars

It's been several days since I've finished reading this book and I still can't get over how great it was. The story was amazing in every way. First off, Braxton was perfect! Usually I can come up with at least one thing I don't like about a hero, but honestly nothing he did really bothered me. Even when he was mad at Cora for a short time towards the end I could understand his anger and couldn't bring myself to be upset with him. I also really loved Cora. She was such a great character and I loved how independent she was and that she didn't let her blindness stop her from going out and living her life. The romance in this book was phenomenal. It was one of those romances that is just so beautiful and heartfelt that it makes you believe in true love. Seriously, people, the way that Braxton and Cora were together was everything. And that scene at the end when he went after her to prove his love just made me swoon. On top of the great love story, I really loved all the other things going on this book. Getting to see how Zach and Sophie are getting on and the way that the author set up the next book in this series just complimented Braxton and Cora's love story so well and made this book a really satisfying contemporary romance! Overall, I loved this book and I have a feeling I'm going to get on people's nerves with how much I'm going to be recommending it.
