Review: Caught Up In You (The Monroes #2) by Jules Bennett

The Monroe brothers have their differences, but one project unites them: turning an antebellum mansion in their Haven, Georgia, hometown into a peaceful spa. It was the dream of their late sister—and it’s about to set off a major renovation in the life of middle brother Braxton…

Braxton Monroe’s taking a break from teaching to do some strenuous work on a Civil War–era house, and feeling the strain in every rock-hard muscle. Good thing he has to interview massage therapists for the spa—even if it’s embarrassing to meet a job candidate in his boxers. Cora Buchanan has hands so talented—and a voice so sultry—he wants to hire her before he even lifts his head from the table. But he’s shocked to meet her outside the massage room—with her seeing-eye dog, Heidi the yellow lab.

Cora has left her family—and fiancé—in Atlanta to make her way in this small town. All her parents’ money can’t restore her sight, but it’s up to her to restore her independence. Though she bristles at Braxton’s protectiveness, she too feels lingering effects from their intimate touch. Now that he’s her boss, it’s strictly hands-off….Until a secret she’s keeping destroys his fragile trust, and they must find the courage to knock down the walls between them.

The premise of this book was fascinating to me – a blind heroine with a history professor? Sign me up. But I found myself having a hard time getting into the story. There was so much info dumping that I felt disconnected from the story and never really got back into it.

 

The plot was decent, and I enjoyed watching Cora continue on her journey to independence, but I simply couldn’t click with either her or Braxton (the hero). They had some great chemistry, and the book was well-written, but it just wasn’t one that had me anxious to turn the page. I read it over the course of days instead of hours, and I wasn’t inspired enough to pick up the first in the series.
