The Reunion of Rich Boy and Servant Girl

The Pine Bluff series features a fun, varied group of twenty-somethings living in small town Alabama. I love how each character has unique quirks and life circumstances. In the fourth installment, cranky attorney Damien fights off his budding attraction to his childhood sweetheart, Harley. It's the reunion of the over-responsible boy and the little girl with stars in her eyes.

Damien's wealthy family employed Harley's parents as cook and butler. Damien, his

Earlier this year, I read the second book of the Pine Bluff series, The Resurrection of Dylan McAthie. At the time I knew I’d go on to pick up other installments because it was clear that Nancee Cain had created several interesting residents of the small Alabama town that serves as the setting. She has cleverly set up a multitude of story possibilities and when I read the premise of The Redirection of Damien Sinclair, I was intrigued.

The story begins in an Atlanta courtroom, where divorce attorn

Loved it! Each book in the Pine Bluff series keeps getting better and better. Damien Sinclair is my new book boyfriend. A handsome man, who likes things to be in order. Harley is his childhood friend and so not about keeping things in order. Their story is so special and sweet. The underlying theme is PTSD and how to cope. A great love story with a message that can help anyone who's experienced a tragic event in their lives. Pick up a copy, in fact, read this series! ...more

First they were friends... then they were lovers... and then the wanker went back to college breaking her heart. When Damien faces his darkest hour, Harley returns, and his world will never be the same.

Another winner from Nancee Cain, there was plenty of twists and turn in this story with surprises around the corner to always keep a person what will happen next. Young love squashed by those wanting to keep Damien and Harley apart, but in all great stories something happens to bring them back together. Will they face their fears and find the love that was there in their youth or will they be torn apart? It's up to you Readers to find out. The Pine Bluff Series is a must read from the first to t ...more

Damien and Harley's story isn't a favorite of mine. Don't get me wrong the life both of these characters lead is a bit depressing and he events that led them to where they are now is a bit heartbreaking, I guess I just didn't get as invested in these characters like I did the previous 2 books.

Harley Taylor has known the Sinclair's since she was a little girl. As the daughter of the help she grew up right along side the Sinclair brothers and participated in many of their kid-like antics. She's b

Wow I couldn't stop reading this book once I started. It sucks you in and refuses to let you go. You when they say opposites attract well that phrase is very clear in this book, because damien and Harley are completely different from each other in every way except for their attraction to each other. I love this book and i know others will too. ...more

I have really enjoyed the journey of this series so far. The characters are well developed and the plots are great. Damian Sinclair is a divorce lawyer that lives life in black and white he has extreme ocd and control issues. Harley Taylor is the complete opposite fun loving living on the edge colorful. They were close as children maybe as adults they can mend their past mistakes.

Feisty and fun! A wonderfully delightful story that had me smiling the whole way through. I enjoyed the characters and how they each realized and worked through their issues with the help of each other. They were the perfect balance.

Damien's story is the clash of the classes, the haves and the help and interfering parents. What happens when young love is destroyed and deterred because it's inconvenient? The author writes a compelling story filled with angst and feelings of inadequacy and feelings of abandonment and PTSD. When tragedy strikes his controlled life Damien is completely thrown for a loop. No longer comfortable in his daily life and now everything is different. She has loved him since she was 5 but he doesn't see ...more

Oh Pine Bluff, I love everything about you and every installment gets better and better. I wish I could send everyone a copy of this series, because you seriously don't know what you're missing. This installment, the Redirection of Damien Sinclair, is a second chance romance that will exceed the boundaries of your expectations.

Every time I think I have a favorite couple in this series, along comes another one to compete for that top spot. I'll admit I wasn't sure about this one. When we met Damien in the last Pine Bluff novel, he was the rigid, follow the rules, older brother to Angel, and I didn't find him all that likable. However, Harley is everything Damien is not and exactly what he needs in his life. There's plenty of head-butting and loads of sexual chemistry and tension between this pair as they work their way ...more

Must read for this series! Don't miss out on Damien's story!!

I would highly suggest you read the whole series, but Nancee Cain has done it again with this book! Oh my goodness I don't even know what to say. I mean besides I love love love absolutely love this book and this series as a whole!!! She has molded these wonderful masterpieces from clay and she calls them the Pine Bluff series!!

Well Nancee did it again. She takes you on this great journey of love that is so relatable and realistic. You know the story wealthy boy and the girl (who's parents are the help) fall in love but of coarse parents get involved and you know what happens.  Yet this book is so much more than a second chance at love.  This is about growth of not only the two main characters but of their families as well. This book is about the strength of a young woman who won't give up on the man she loves even whe ...more

Nancee has created a community of lovable, flawed characters. Angel is my favorite male character of the series so far. I believe I have already claimed him as mine. Harley has to be my favorite female character. She is so full of life an spunky with just the right amount of flaws to make her not over the top nice. Damien is very structured and suborn. When disaster strikes it shakes up his controlled life and sends him reeling. Growing up with Damien the two have a past that's unfinished, but i ...more

Damien and Harley have been friends since they were kids.....which turned into something else for about a minute. They however find themselves thrown together 10 years later, where you realize that things were never really over, or dealt with, that the attraction is still there!! Second chances has ALWAYS been one of favorite types of romance and this story is just that.

Wow! Terrific second-chance romance with amazing characters. This is my first read from this series and it was so good I’m going to read the others. The wonderful town is a character in the story as much as the fabulous humans. I loved Harley, the wild child of the past and present. She comes storming back to town ready to shake things up or at least one upright lawyer. Childhood friend Damien is said lawyer that’s suffering from recent events. These two had a childhood romance that the parents ...more

The Redirection of Damien Sinclair is book four in the Pine Bluff series but it can be read as a standalone. I read The Reinvention of Jinx Howell (Book 5) first and then decided to read this one. Damien grew up with Harley. Harley's parents worked for Damien's family. Damien is now a successful divorce attorney. He's is not a fan of getting married.

This is the fourth book in this phenomenal series, and is Damien and Harley’s turn. Damien is always in control of his life, even when he is struggling with PTSD. Harley and Damien have a history, and this free spirit appoints herself as his caregiver, and she certainly shakes up his quiet life. This is another beautifully written story from this exceptional author, and this story is humorous, and with suspense which all lead to a heart-warming read. I was totally captivated throughout this addi ...more

I’m mad. Mad that it’s over. Mad that I couldn’t pace myself to have something to read later. Seriously. Once I started, I couldn’t put it down.

Sometimes it’s hard to see second chances for what they are. Life gets in the way and can steer you in the wrong direction if you aren’t paying attention. Sometimes, if you’re lucky, Fate will step in and give life a hard push out of the way.

I love the glimpses of previous characters in the the series.

Well she did it again!! I have read the entire series, I fell in love with the characters that Nancee has created, and every time I say I found my new favorite couple, she throws me for the loop! Harley and Damien were a whirlwind, well at least Harley is. My emotions played high on this, one minute I was frustrated, the next pissy, then sad, then totally thrilled and laughing at her silly pranks. Thank you Nancee for giving me the opportunity to read this, as always you never disappoint. I look ...more

Nancee's latest Pine Bluff novel has it all! I loved the characters I'd already met in previous books but it's a great stand alone story. Damien and Harley have fantastic chemistry if they will just give into the inevitable. Their journey is filled with joy and heartbreak and is a story that stays with the reader long past the last page. ...more

Damien is a successful lawyer who lives a very regimented life. His life takes a turn when he starts suffering from ptsd after experiencing the unthinkable. Enter Harley, the help, the total opposite of Damien. This fun-loving woman has always loved Damien and decides that she needs to take care of him. The narrative is often humorous, often exasperating as Damien and Harley try to work out their differences and their obvious need for each other. I particularly enjoyed the scene at Maggie and An ...more

4,5 * for me

Damn! Damien is very much like me, the responsible old guy, in my case girl.
I know exactly his frustration about separations, he is a divorce attorney, hell my parents have their divorce at the age of 70... I'm still traumatized, it's been a year.

Love and caring has not been in his vocabulary for a long time but as Harley arrives, his teen sweet heart, his vocabulary might change. No worries like in their past, but obstacles still linger. I hope they can make it.

Nancee Cain can tell a story of tragedy, romance, and heartbreak all in a few pages. This book grabbed me from the beginning and kept me turning pages as quickly as possible all the way until the end. The Pine Bluff series could be read as a stand-alone series, but why? The characters support each other from each book to the next. I recommend reading in order. If not just read them! I see myself rereading this series in years to come.
