FALLING FOR JILLIAN Synopsis:
From New York Times bestselling author Kristen Proby comes the third romance in the Love Under the Big Sky series, featuring a veteran struggling with PTSD and the one woman who can help him recover—and learn to love again.
Jillian thought she was a city girl through and through; the fast cars, high fashion, and glamour—she loves it all. But when her ex tells her he’s having a baby with his new wife (after Jillian struggled for years to get pregnant), she hightails it back to Montana to cry on the shoulder of her best friend, Cara.
But in truth, Jillian would rather be comforted by someone else…specifically Zack, Cara’s brother-in-law. Zack is a veteran of the Iraq War who came back to the family ranch to raise his preteen son after the boy’s mother took off. He’s struggling to re-establish a relationship with his son, and warding off the demons of PTSD, which still haunt him. The last thing he needs is bold, brassy Jillian…but why can’t he keep his hands off her?

“Okay, plug them in.”
I run to the porch and plug in the lights, then run back into the front yard to see them.
“Oh, they’re so pretty!”
“Thank God they all work,” he says as he tosses the black shoe down to the ground and then moves carefully down to the ladder. “It would be a bitch to have to take them back down.”
“I checked them,” I assure him, and when his foot finally lands safely on the snow and he turns to me, I hit him on the arm. “You shouldn’t have done that! You took ten years off my life!”
I throw my arms around his torso and squeeze him tightly, then back away.
“No, you shouldn’t have been on that ladder. If I catch you on one again, I’ll spank your ass until it glows.”
My jaw drops as I gaze up into his frustrated face. For once in my life, I’m speechless. I scowl as I pull myself together and clench my fists. “You wouldn’t dare . . .”
“Put yourself in danger again and see if I don’t,” he replies calmly and crosses his arms over his chest.
“Did you come here to bully me?”
He sighs and pulls his beanie off his head, pushing his fingers through the messy brown strands. I want to sink my fingers in that thick, dark hair.
“No. I came because you won’t answer your fucking phone so I can apologize for the other night.”
“I don’t want your apology,” I reply and throw the extra lights and staple gun back into the tote and turn away, but he catches my arm and turns me back to him, takes the tote, and sets it down.
“I’m going to give it anyway.” His jaw is firm. “I had no right to kiss you like that in the parking lot for everyone to see.”
I jerk back, mortified. “You’re apologizing for kissing me?”
Whitney’s Four Star Review
Falling For Jillian is book three in the Love Under the Big Sky series which I have enjoyed from book one. I have loved the other books but I was most excited to read Zach’s story. He’s got the hot, single dad vibe and the wounded war hero all rolled into one fine package.
We met Zach and Jillian throughout the other books in this series and Falling For Jillian picks up where Seducing Lauren leaves off. In other words, it really works best to read these in order even though each book has a different main couple.
After Jillian and Zach spent a hot night together months ago, she thought he was done with her. The attraction between these two is intense so they quickly realize being done with each other is the last place they want to be. They begin to work out their misunderstanding and try to develop a relationship despite heavy baggage on both ends.
Zach is kind of the perfect book boyfriend. He’s an amazing dad, protective of his family and he can dirty talk with the best of them. Jillian is a spunky and tough heroine who can hold her own.
I don’t want to spoil anything but a scene toward the end of the book involving Seth (Zach’s son) left me cheering out loud for her and tearing up at the same time.
I definitely recommend this book and the series, it’s a light read and Zach is the perfect man to warm you up this winter!
