When heroin stole James Foley’s wife and destroyed his marriage, he poured all his energy into raising his young son and running his auto garage. There’s no room in his life for anything else until Megan McKenna walks into his shop. He finds it impossible to resist the sexy school teacher.

After an ugly divorce, Megan lost her home, her job, and a big chunk of her self-respect. With her posh lifestyle now a memory, she starts over by indulging in an unexpected fling with a hard-bodied mechanic.

What begins as something casual turns into something meaningful. But how can their relationship survive when it’s built on half-truths?

James and Megan soon discover that being honest with themselves is just as important as being honest with each other. Only then will their relationship fire on all cylinders.

When I read the blurb for Where I Need To Be by Jamie Hollins I was so intrigued. A single dad who wants nothing to do with relationships and the woman that comes into his life and turns it inside out, sign me up!

James Foley lost his wife to drugs. His only purpose in his life now is to raise his son and run his business. He has no time for anything or anyone else. I really liked James. He really was a good guy that was hit with hard circumstances and was doing the best he could.

Megan McKenna just went through an ugly divorce where she lost everything. Starting over, she decides to have some fun with the hot mechanic who worked on her car and is the father of one of her students. She vows to keep this completely casual and with no strings. Though Megan found herself completely starting over and her life drastically changed, she was strong and determined. But at other times she was a bit weak and timid, especially when dealing with her family.

But life is never easy and casual somehow turns into more for James and Megan. I loved that both Megan and James were older, a bit wiser and had gone through difficult times. It made them stronger, even as they had fun together. They had lot of chemistry and even hotter sexy times together. I loved how they got to know each other.

I found Where I Want To Be to be a light and fun read. Not too heavy and just enough fun, humor and angst to keep me interested. James was such a great guy and I loved seeing him with his son. Megan grew throughout the story and it was fun watching their relationship grow. I am definitely intrigued enough to read the rest of the series and other work by this new-to-me author.
