HAPPY RELEASE DAY! ~ Cut Short by Julia Wolf (Trailer & Giveaway INSIDE!)

Title: Cut Short
Author: Julia Wolf
Genre: Romantic Comedy

Release Date: March 22, 2018 

 


 

Of all the towns and salons he could have walked into, he had to walk into hers…

Rachel Sachs finally has her life together— almost. She owns a salon in the town she’s always loved, dances the Running Man like nobody’s business, has regular wine nights with her girls, and does really good hair.

After a trail of failed Tinder hook-ups, she’s finally ready for something real…

Until she sees Joe Silver— the object of her high school obsession and the breaker of her young heart. That might be a little too real.

Fourteen years ago, Rachel ghosted when Joe made it clear she’d never have him. But now? He’s not letting her get away. And soon they’re right back to where they started, only instead of the all night instant messaging they did in high school, they’re blowing up each other’s phones with texts.

Rachel wants nothing more than to savor the slow, delicious burn of falling for Joe Silver again, but can she trust that what they’re building is the real she’s looking for? Or will history repeat itself and leave her with another broken heart?

Joe and Rachel were kind of exhausting. Their story itself was cute, but they all seemed like they were very immature, in their early twenties rather than actual adults.

My biggest problem with the story was that, at times, there was an insane amount of detail for random things. It just felt out of place and I would go back to make sure I hadn’t skipped a page or two. I liked the story, but I just wanted it to be so much more.
