Title: Seventeen Days
Author: D.B. James
Genre: New Adult Romance
Morgan Young’s plans for the summer consisted of two things: fun and friends. Working in a small costal Alabama town for a man she barely knew wasn’t included — especially since she can’t stay away from him.
After losing everyone he loves, Harrison Montgomery has given up on happiness — and love. When his path crosses with the feisty redhead’s, he can’t seem to get her off his mind. But their time together is threatened by Morgan’s plans to leave.
One dare may change the future.
Harrison throws down a challenge, a dare that changes their lives — one Morgan accepts. But is Seventeen Days really enough to fall in love? Can they find a home in one another, or will the storms of the past pull them under.
This has been a summer of amazing debut books! Here’s another one for you. I thoroughly enjoyed Seventeen Days. A New Adult novel by debut author D.B. James, I found it to be well-written with an engaging storyline that drew me in from the very beginning. I have to tell you the truth, the Prologue had me dreading what was going to happen in this book. I was biting my nails throughout it. I was expecting a lot heavier angst then what I got. But don’t get me wrong, James covers some heavy hitting stuff.
I loved the characters in this book. The main characters, Harrison and Morgan, had really well thought out backstories and were complex people with flaws. And there were no simpering misses here, Morgan was feisty as hell. I loved watching her take no nonsense from Harrison. Harrison was a confident, sexy as hell cowboy. If you got a thing for a man in cowboy boots, this is the guy for you.
And while there was no heavy angst for me, this book did take me on a rollercoaster of emotions. I felt a lot while reading this—anger, heartache, grief, love—you name it I probably felt it. It is a spectacular debut novel. I cannot wait to read more from this author. Another one to add to my watch list. -Peace and Love, Buxom J
