Lançamento Internacional (MI-32/2017):FORD - Samantha Chase - 7 Brides for 7 soldiers

Olá pessoal, tudo bem por aí? Por aqui continuo nas minhas leituras, muitas internacionais... eu queria que todos os bons livros que leio viessem para o Brasil e dentre eles a série deste livro que falarei agora.

Nos EUA os autores são muito amigos e escrevem livros e séries juntos, e a Série 7 Brides for 7 soldiers (7 noivas para 7 soldados) foi escrita por 7 autoras. Eu li o primeiro livro e o último, gostaria de ter lido todos os livros, mas o tempo e o $$$ estão um pouco curtos.

ABOUT THE BOOK

There are three things Ford Garrison wants more than anything: to build, to report to no one, and the chance to live his life without the prying eyes of the good folks of Eagle’s Ridge. Having spent ten years in the Navy as part of their construction battalion, he was able to live out most of that dream. Two out three wasn’t bad, right? Now that he’s out of the service, things aren’t falling into place quite as easily as he hoped and he ends up back home with all eyes on him.

It wasn’t as if Callie had gone out of her way to end up in Ford’s path, but somehow that happened all on its own and the town gossips were having a field day! Could she help it that she was living in the house Ford had hoped to claim as his own or that the work on his grandmother’s ranch meant they were living not fifty-feet away from each other?

Ford was determined to come home, do a job to help his grandmother and leave. Callie James is a distraction and she represents everything he has spent years running away from. Now he’s at odds with his friends, his family and himself about where his home and future are going to be.

Could he walk away from Eagle’s Ridge a second time?

Minha resenha (My review)

Ford Garrison nasceu e viveu em Eagle Ridge, nascido de uma família influente e de posses, sempre foi uma 'sombra' do avô paterno, com quem aprendeu muito sobre marcenaria e construção, mas ao 18 anos resolveu seguir a carreira militar, Ford queria se provar por ele mesmo, ser quem ele é, sem ter toda a cidade sabendo o que ele fez ou deixou de fazer. Mesmo indo para o exército, era com construção que ele trabalhava, reconstruindo ou construindo... e sempre que podia voltava por pouco tempo a Eagle Ridge. Agora ele já saiu do exército e trabalha com construção na Filadélfia, do outro lado do país, ainda continua resistente a voltar para sua cidade natal, mas a sua avó querida sofreu um pequeno acidente e parte da casa dos avós está precisando ser recuperada, e por isso, Ford retorna a Eagle Ridge para ajudar a avó... ele se sente triste por não ter estado com o avô antes de ele falecer e quer estar com a avó, pelo menos para melhorar a casa que ela e o avô construiram juntos há vários anos. Ford Garrison was born and raised in Eagle Ridge, born of an influential family of possessions, was always a 'shadow' of the paternal grandfather, with whom he learned much about carpentry and construction, but at the age of 18 decided to pursue a military career, Ford wanted to prove by himself, to be who he is, without having the whole city knowing what he did or did not do. Even going to the army, it was construction he worked on, rebuilding or building... and whenever he could go back to Eagle Ridge for a little while. Now he has left the army and works with construction in Philadelphia, across the country, still remains resistant to returning to his hometown, but his beloved grandmother suffered a minor accident and part of the grandparents' house needs to be recovered, and so Ford returns to Eagle Ridge to help his grandmother... he feels sorry for not being with his grandfather before he dies and wants to be with his grandmother, at least to improve the house she and grandfather built together several years ago.

O que Ford não imagina é que fosse encontrar uma vizinha da casa dos avôs, na realidade uma 'inquilina' da avó na casa de hóspedes, e que esta moça, uma linda e doce, professora, fosse mexer tanto com os sentimentos dele. What Ford did not realize was that he was going to find a neighbor of the grandparents' house, in fact a grandmother's' in-house'guesthouse, and that this sweet and lovely young lady would be so fussy about his feelings.

Callie James é a filha da antiga ajudante, faxineira, e amiga dos Garrison, os avós de Ford sempre tiveram muito carinho por Callie e sua mãe, e quando Callie se tornou a professora do jardim (crianças de 5 anos) próximo ao Rancho de Margareth Garrison, Margareth oferece que ela more no chalé de hóspedes. Callie James is the daughter of the former helper, janitor, and friend of the Garrison, Ford's grandparents have always been very fond of Callie and her mother, and when Callie became the kindengarden teacher (5 year old) near Margareth's Ranch Garrison, Margareth offers that she lives in the guest cottage.

Callie sempre teve 'uma queda' por Ford, ele foi seu crush da adolescência, mesmo que ele nunca tenha percebido a menina, que é 4 anos mais nova... mas quando Callie e Ford se reencontram e começam a conviver bem próximo é inevitável que a atração e os sentimentos apareçam e se concretizem, fortalecendo o relacionamento. Callie always had a 'fall' for Ford, he was her crush of adolescence, even though he never noticed the girl, who is 4 years younger... but when Callie and Ford met and start to get along very close, it's inevitable that the attraction and the feelings appear and they materialize, strengthening the relationship.

Será que Ford será capaz de aceitar seu destino, de ser o herdeiro do avo para cuidar da construtora Garrison, e com isso retornar a Eagle Ridge definitivamente? Será que Callie poderá ajudar Ford a perceber o quanto a pequena cidade pode ser encantadora assim como todos, ou quase todos, na cidade? Will Ford be able to accept his fate, to be the grandfather's heir to take care of the Garrison builder, and with that return to Eagle Ridge forever? Will Callie be able to help Ford realize how the small town can be as charming as everyone else, or almost everyone, in town?

Só senti falta de um pouco mais de cenas calientes. I missed more hot scenes. 

EXCERPT
“What are you working on out here? More wreaths?”
With a soft laugh, she pulled back and stepped out of his arms. “I am. Doing something like this is normally very soothing for me. When I got home, I came right out here rather than going into the cottage.”
“And did it help?”
Callie shook her head. “Unfortunately, it was so quiet out here, and I’ve already made four of these wreaths so I didn’t even have to think about what I was doing.”
“So your mind immediately went to your mom.”
She nodded. “Exactly.”
Stepping around her, Ford examined the wreath. It looked exactly like the one she had given him for his grandmother’s front door, but now he took the time to look at the details. It seemed so simple at first glance, but when he realized how much time went into weaving the lights and how tedious that could be, he was more than a little impressed. The vine was fragile, and he knew he’d more than likely crush some of it if he tried to do it himself.
Unable to help himself, he reached for one of Callie’s hands and studied it. It was small and delicate. Her fingers were slim and smooth. No wonder she could do work like this. He looked at her face and saw her studying him, her expression serious.
And Callie rarely looked serious or intense. Her features were always relaxed or smiling. This was…different.
He brought her hand to his lips and kissed her palm. “I was just noticing how intricate this work is,” he said gruffly. “I’m a little in awe of what you do.”
“Me? But…what you do is so much more—”
Ford placed a finger over her lips and shook his head. “I’m in awe of you,” he repeated, and slowly pulled her in close again.
Callie’s lips parted on a soft gasp as her eyes met his. And those beautiful eyes seemed to have a million questions in them, and Ford only had one answer.
He kissed her.
Slowly. Sweetly. He savored her as she melted against him. She hummed as her arms wrapped around him and in that instant, Ford knew what he had to do.
He lifted his head and looked down at her. Her lips were wet and her cheeks were flushed and she was the most beautiful woman he’d ever seen. So many nights over the last week they’d been like this, and right now, Ford knew he wanted more.
“Come home with me, Callie,” he murmured against her lips before resting his forehead against hers.
“Yes.”
Never had a single word sounded sweeter.
