Review: Sweat Equity (Stewart Realty Book 2)
Author: Liz Crowe
Publisher: Tri Destiny Publishing
Genre: Erotic Contemporary Romance
We are back in the real estate world of Ann Arbor, Michigan with Sara and Jack. Things are looking ok for the couple, they are getting married, planning the wedding, went on a wonderful trip, when it all falls apart. Why in the hell Jack lets it happen still confuses me.
Both Jack and Sara find temporary solace in the company of another, while Jack tries to rebuild some sort of connection with Sara. Sara keeps her distance but allows Jack in just a bit with long nightly phone conversations.
Meanwhile all their friends involve themselves in trying to help in some way or another. Sara’s brother Blake is happy she’s away from Jack but sad over her unhappiness, and his over protectiveness is now causing waves in his own relationship, which we get a little look into in this second installment.
The shocking ending of this book had me wanting to beat the living crap out of both Sara and Jack. I find myself wanting to scream at them to get their heads of out their asses. They are too damn stubborn for their own good and it’s frustrating and I find my emotions changing along with the characters emotions.
Liz’s books are definitely an emotional roller coaster ride. Her tag line “Romance for Real Life” is very accurate and says it all about her books. She puts real life emotions, doubts, confidences, etc. into her stories and the outcome is not always “Love Conquers All” just like in real life love does not conquer all.
I’m in a love/hate relationship with this series right now. The chemistry between Jack and Sara is amazing; most of the men in these books are rip your panties off hot. But the frustration at Jack and Sara’s stubbornness really makes me grit my teeth sometimes. But it’s the above combination that keeps me coming back for more, I can’t wait to dive into book 3 and see if Jack and Sara finally start working on things instead of fighting them.
