VIRTUAL TOUR REVIEW & GIVEAWAY - Where I Need to Be (McKenna Series #3) by Jamie Hollins

How can their relationship survive when it’s built on half-truths? 

McKenna Series #3
Jamie Hollins
Releasing July 18, 2017

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.
I didn't read the first book in the series, although I did read the second, so I don't know much about Megan, so I found it hard to connect with her character. But I have to give her props for moving on with her life after the turmoil of her marriage and subsequent divorce. The last few years of James' life hasn't been easy either, but I liked how he worked to make sure he could give his son a nurturing environment, after the turmoil of his marriage. One thing that worked for me with this story is that it wasn't a love at first sight type of romance, and that they acknowledged neither of them was in the right headspace for a relationship other than a physical one, but over time feelings change.


Jamie Hollins was born and raised in rural Northeast Ohio.  After graduate school, she embarked on a perilous career in Human Resources where she met plenty of real life characters.  When she’s not writing or chasing after her toddler, she enjoys reading and golfing.  Jamie lives in Pennsylvania with her husband, son, and their dog, Winston.
