Lean On Me

Lean On Me is book 2 in the Holloway series from HelenKay Dimon. The publisher is Carina Press. From the author’s website.~

Cassidy Clarke once climbed the world's highest mountains, but after an unexpected illness ends her career she's back in her hometown, broke and hoping for a little luck. But the townsfolk aren't exactly putting out a welcome mat for the woman who once snubbed them in the media, despite her apologies now.

Mitch Anders knows someone has set up camp on the grounds of his plant nursery, and he's surprised to find his sexy high school crush ducking questions about where she's staying. Though he's sworn to stop cleaning up other people's messes, Mitch offers Cassidy a job and a place to stay—his place. Bed-sharing optional, but definitely welcome.

Out of options and too attracted to Mitch to keep things platonic, Cassidy says yes to his offer. She wants to get back on her feet financially and start a new career. She never expects to suffer a different kind of fall, one that has her believing Mitch just might bring her something bigger and better than luck.

I was lucky enough to get an early copy of Lean On Me from NetGalley. I’ve been a fan of HelenKay Dimon’s for years and couldn’t wait to read her newest book. The official publication date is set for October 22, 2012.

I really enjoyed Lean On Me. I liked Cassidy and thought her hometown was kind of crappy to her for one off-handed remark she made years ago. She has run into a bad spot financially and is lucky enough to have Mitch Anders come to her aid. I really loved the chemistry between Cassidy and Mitch. I’ve come to expect some pretty sexy scenes from Dimon and she totally delivered with Lean On Me. While I loved the chemistry, the protectiveness Mitch feels for Cassidy was really sweet. Of course, Mitch does mess up royally with Cassidy at one point, but he is so protective of her when anyone in town tries to attack her.

Lean On Me is a really fast, fun and sexy read from HelenKay Dimon. Lean On Me is a digital only release from Carina Press and can be found at Carina Press or your favorite online retailer. For more information about HelenKay Dimon and her books, check out her website.
