Some Sort of Happy by Melanie Harlow

happycoverfinalfinal

Coming September 22, 2015

Synopsis
Skylar Nixon is a twenty-seven year old failed actress with no Plan B. After a humiliating stint on a reality TV show crushes what’s left of her childhood dream, she finds herself back in her hometown with no money saved, no college degree, and no confidence she’s anything but a joke—a small town starlet who couldn’t hack it in the big city.
When she runs into former classmate Sebastian Pryce, she can’t believe the hot body and chiseled jaw belong to the shy, troubled loner she knew ten years before. He’s not exactly friendly at first, and she’s heard the rumors about his tragic past, but something in his sad eyes intrigues her. She only wants to get to know him better.
Until the night she wants more—and takes it. (Hard and deep. Twice.)
Are they just two lonely people seeking solace? Or can a disgraced beauty queen and flawed, frustrated man find some sort of happy ever after?
**SOME SORT OF HAPPY is a full-length, dual POV novel, complete with a happy ending.**

Synopsis Logo

It’s a summer fling; just keep telling yourself that and you’ll be alright. This thing with Mason Pierce, it’s just a fling, something fun to pass the time. He’s a rebound from the disastrous breakup, a band-aid, a patch over a wound that will help the hurt heal, right? ~Red

If someone had told me two months ago that I’d be spending the summer with Red Summers in my arms, I’d have called them crazy, but here I am and here she is. Life is just about as perfect as it can be. Except, it feels like she’s pulling away instead of drawing closer. Everyday, it seems that Red is putting more and more distance between us, and I don’t understand why. ~Mason

“I’ve loved you since you were ten years old. Hell, I may have loved you before that, but I don’t remember. I’ve only ever wanted you, Red. I’m never going to want anyone else,” I vow. “Just you.”

5-Stars

I want to start by saying that “I am in love with Mason”. He is hot, sweet and loving. The characters in this series are a good group; they have known each other since they were kids. So they know everything about each other, but yet there are secrets. Then you have the other kids, the mean girls and the jerk ex-boyfriend. But, they all play their role in the story.

“Mason only has a couple of more weeks before he has to get back to Norman for the start of fall training. His life has to return to normal, the before me sort of normal, and I have to figure out what my normal is because the normal before June doesn’t exist any longer. It will never be again. Somehow, I need to come to terms with that.”

In book 3 Red and Mason continue their summer romance; but they have something to say to each other and neither one seems to be able to say it.  Red has a secret. Mason is afraid to tell Red what he wants for their relationship once summer is over.

“It’s on the tip of my tongue to tell him, tell him my biggest secret, the one no one knows, the one that may ruin what we have.”

“So, let me get this straight, you are scared to tell Red how you feel because you are afraid of losin her, but if you don’t ever find a pair and tell her, you’re gonna lose her anyway.”

The gang has some great summer fun.

Mary Lou seems to have found her match in Monroe. Will she let her walls down?

An old friendship is rekindled.

A new couple emerges. Surprise!!

But it’s not all love, fun and games.  A secret from the past is revealed, will it change things for Red and Mason? Will another friendship be ruined?

There were anxious moments where I stopped reading and sent out private messages…threatening to show up with a pitchfork! Moments of crying out loud “NO!!!” But, I was asked to have faith; so I am practicing having faith and I am patiently strumming my fingers waiting to find out what will happen.

“It’s only ever been you, Red.”

Mom always tells me that when life gives you lemons you squeeze the heck out of them and hope for some lemonade, but after catching that no-good lying, jerk of a bastard cheating on me seconds before we were supposed to be married, I do what any self-respecting Southern girl would do: throw a punch and hide under my blankie. Now, Mary Lou thinks I need a night of fun and adventure. I agree to go out, planning to get her off my back, but when I find myself in Mason Pierce’s arms, I’m thanking my lucky stars, and my best friend. ~Red

***

Freemont, Oklahoma, is the last place on the whole damned planet that I want to spend my summer and working on my parents’ ranch is the last thing I want to do, but damned if that’s not what I’m doing. Monroe and I need a night away from this place, a night to blow off steam. A party at the lake sounds like a mighty fine idea, and after catching a glimpse of Red Summers in the firelight, I’m quickly changing my tune. ~Mason

I’m a twenty-something Okie girl who is mom to three, four if you count my husband. I’m a full time author/photographer, and I love to make teaser graphics to avoid actually working! I graduated from SOSU (a smaller, four-year university that is close to home) with a Bachelor’s degree in English Lit and a minor in Sociology. I’m an avid reader, obviously, and a life-long writer. I love happily ever afters above all else (though, the struggle to get there is the best part!) Currently, I have two published series: Sealed and Like A Lady. Check out the first part to either series for free!
