Eric thought he had forever...before.

Divided between reliving the past and embracing his new life with Ivy, Eric fears that love will once again be ripped from his grasp. Having faith in the future is hard. So many things can go wrong.

Ivy is convinced that what they have is meant to be...but no one can escape the wheel of fate.

Her love for Eric and the life they're creating make every sacrifice seem worthwhile. Until she's forced to reveal the truth surrounding her delicate condition. Even if it shatters his hope.

Can they hold onto their newfound happiness or are events already in motion to keep them apart?


My boyfriend is so freakin’ hot.

I press my nose against the glass, peering out as he stops to take a break from cutting the grass around the garden center. It’s sweltering outside and he’s worked up quite a sweat pushing the lawn mower up and down the property. As a result of his labor, his white t-shirt is clinging to his chest in all the right places. I sigh happily, taking him in.

He has no clue that I’m watching as he picks up a water bottle and pours it over his head, forming a trail that trickles down the length of his body. I clutch the windowsill as I feel that all too familiar twinge between my legs. Being pregnant, my hormones are on fire and it doesn’t take much to get me going. So it’s no wonder a moan escapes my lips when he doesn’t stop there. Instead, he casually begins to strip in front of me.

My cheeks burn as he lifts his arms over his head, removing his shirt, elongating every inch of his defined abs. My eyes follow his v-shaped pelvic muscle as it dips suggestively below his belt buckle. My breathing becomes heavy as he stretches, causing his jeans to ride even lower on his hips. My pulse skyrockets as he proceeds to wring the water out of his shirt, flexing his glistening biceps against the rays of the setting sun.

I squirm against the window, forcing my knees together. My movement catches his attention and he glances up, meeting my gaze. A sexy grin slowly spreads across his face when he realizes the effect he’s having on me. My mouth is open. I’m literally panting for him. He shakes his head and chuckles softly. My heart clenches at how adorable he looks.

He’s not the kind of guy who flaunts his body, but for me it seems like he enjoys being on display. He runs his hands through his damp hair, tousling it before grabbing another bottle of water. He winks at me, tilting back his head and taking a long swig. He closes his eyes, his lips wrapped around the bottle, teasing me. He smiles when he’s done, beckoning me with his finger.

I don’t hesitate for a moment. I gladly leave the confines of his air-conditioned office and rush outside. He’s waiting, his eyes smoldering. He stands with his hands on his hips, watching as I approach. It’s unseasonably mild for October, and I step out of my clogs as I draw nearer to him. His gaze never leaves my face. It only intensifies, causing me to blush even more.

I get close enough to feel the warmth of his breath on my cheek, but I don’t speak. Instead, I run my hands across the wide breadth of his shoulders and down his heaving chest. My touch must be driving him wild because I can feel his heart thudding beneath my fingertips. His skin is so smooth and firm. He’s a man’s man who’d never dream of waxing his upper body, and a trail of soft, fine hair guides me to his belly button and beyond.

“How can I expect to get anything done around here with you touching me like that?” Eric asks, his voice all husky as I find the zipper of his jeans.

“Well, you shouldn’t be tempting me by getting naked in front of the window,” I whisper seductively as he grabs my wrist, preventing me from lowering his zipper and undressing him any further.

With my free hand, I start to remove my dress when he growls, “I don’t want anyone seeing what’s mine.” He scans the horizon for any approaching vehicles, but there are none to be found. “No one’s ever going to hear what you sound like when you come. Only me.”

My Review:

O_o !!!!!

Oh my God!!! 

Wow! Where do I start with Meant For Me by Faith Sullivan?!?! I reviewed Take Me Now, which is the first installment in the series, a few weeks ago. I was pleasantly surprised at how the story unfolded. I thought that TMN was a rollercoaster ride .... Boy, was I wrong!!! Never in a million years did I see this story going into this direction .... Everrrr! We get to read from four different POV's in this book : Ivy, Eric, Lauren and Will. I was shocked when I saw Lauren and Will's name at the top of those chapters. My first words out of my mouth ... ''Oh, crap!'' I love when authors write from different POV's. It gives us the privilege to connected with the characters even more.

First of all let me you something ... that first chapter ... It's hot!!! Holy Hotness!! Eric is just *Swoon* He caught my attention in TMN, but in MFM .... Eeeeep! Watch out he's dreamy!!! Ok, back to the story. MFM picks up where TMN left off. Ivy and Eric are trying to start their life together after overcoming many obstacles. They are living peacefully until Will (Ivy's first love interest) comes back into their lives and delivers shocking news. I don't want to spoil what the plot is about, but trust me that I have never seen so many twist and turns in a story. I was constantly rereading just to make sure I understood what was happening. 

When I read TMN I really, really, really hated Lauren. She's a first class B*tch! In this book, I don't think I can even find a word to describe how much I detest her. I wanted to punch something while reading her POV. She's selfish and despicable. She's always blackmailing people and is up to no good. This girl is Trouble with a capital T. Will and Lauren are similar. I hated him, but in MFM I saw i'm in a different way. He's still a douchebag, but I like him a bit more. It really took me by surprise what was revealed of him. 

Ivy and Eric are two characters that I love to read about. My heart broke for Eric when we got a glimpse of his tragic past, and how what happened in the past is coming to haunt him again :( It's beautiful to see how much he loves Ivy. She means the world to him and he would do anything to keep her safe and happy. Ivy is very different this time around. She's more mature and she has difficult decisions to make. I have to admit that her last decision left me screaming at her. I understand what she was going through, but I did not agree how she played out her cards and made that crucial call.

This book ended with a CLIFFHANGER!!!!!! Arrrrrrg! A major one! So major that I'm already planning in my head what is going to happen next. Hold Me Tight comes out in April ... that's too far away!!!!

My Rating:

I give Meant For Me by Faith Sullivan 4.5 dramatic, sexy, exciting stars! This series is turning out to be a real surprise and I'm loving every single minute of it! Faith Sullivan delivers another page-turner! ;)
