JUST THE WAY YOU ARE

JUST THE WAY YOU ARE                     BEVERLY BARTON
Posted:  Feb. 10, 2015

Mary Beth Caine has always been the good girl in her small Mississippi town. But when a big, protective, shamelessly sexy stranger offers to console her on the night of her disastrous engagement party, Mary Beth lets him—only to discover that Parr Weston also happens to be the older brother of her fiancé, Bobby Joe.

Parr left Mississippi after years spent holding his family together. Now that he's back, he can't steal Bobby Joe's woman, and he sure can't offer Mary Beth the tidy happily-ever-after she deserves. But everything about the petite beauty—from her flame-gold hair to her artless sensuality—makes him crave her more. Love or lust, right or wrong, all he knows is that nothing has ever felt like this before, and walking away will be the hardest thing he's ever had to do.

MY REVIEW:
     This was a love triangle to beat all love triangles.  You have your virgin bride to be Mary Beth Caine and her single widow dad, Howard.  Who by the way is sweet on the groom’s to be mom, Alma Weston.  She is the mother of the groom to be Bobby Joe and his older brother Parr.
     Bobby Joe gets caught by Mary Beth at their engagement party.  Only 45 minutes after announcing the marriage to be, he’s in the storage closet with his ex-girlfriend Luellen, half undressed with her making out.  Slamming the door and running out of the hotel to the gardens she runs into a man who finds her crying no sobbing her eyes out.
     You see Bobby Joe’s brother Parr and Mary Beth have never met living in two different states.  Even though Parr is footing the whole bill for the evening just like everything else that happens in his family.  You see his father passed when he was 12 so he took on caring for his mom, spoiled brother, cousin and her family.
     When Parr, the self-proclaimed bachelor’s eyes fall on the most beautiful woman ever, he is sunk his bachelor days are numbered.  He knows he wants more with her and from her.  Then she tells her story never mentioning names.  She knows it’s time to face her cheater and Parr wants to go to protect her and his interest in her of course.  Saying they should find her dad first when they do…reality becomes very clear, very fast.
     I give this book 4 stars.  I did have a problem at about the 70%-90% mark for it was dragging for me a lot.  Plus I was getting tired of Mary Beth’s Character.  Then finally the other’s took over and brought the story along to a fairly good ending.  Provided by Net Galley.
