Blog Tour: Gypsy Love by Jillian Neal

Arley Copeland vows never to trust anyone, much less a man, ever again. After her fledging career as a romance writer grinds to a halt and her ex blabs to the press about her preferences in bed, she heads to Gypsy Beach desperate to regain some anonymity and maybe figure out what to do next.

Divorce attorney John Rowan has been in on the explosive end of more marriages than he can count. Love never lasts. Of that he’s certain. Sick of barely existing inside the concrete jungle of Atlanta with the endless traffic and endless noise he heads towards a two-week reprieve in Gypsy Beach, North Carolina.

From the moment he lays eyes on Arley Copeland, John is determined to prove that not every guy on the planet is out to hurt her, and maybe teach her a thing or two about herself in his bed and out. With every sinfully sweet caress, they’re falling more and more in love. Their pasts may be fading away, but will John ever be prepared to risk it all on a lifetime love when he doesn’t believe such a thing could ever exist?

The great thing about reading romance is that you always get a HEA, right?  Sometimes it's fast and sometimes it takes the coupe ages to get there.  But ultimately in the end, the reader is left with a smile and a sense that the couple will make it forever. In Gypsy Love, Arley, a romance writer, talks a lot about the reasons she writes romance novels because she loves the HEA.  John is a divorce attorney who doesn't believe that can exist because he sees divorce every day in his work.  I knew this wold make for a good book and I was right.

I liked this couple's story.  I thought they were great for each other.  Their attraction was pretty intense and I think that added to the speed at which they came together.While the love declaration and HEA was a bit quick for me, I ultimately did like the book and the message.  Forever is not about doing it in a moment, it's about collecting all of your moments together to make up a lifetime.  

While this is the second book in the series, I did feel it could do as a stand alone.  I do want to seek out the first book, Gypsy Beach and read how Sienna and Ryan get their second chance at love.
