    free copy provided by publisher via netgalley I guess it was ok I guess that, since the characters are so down to earth, without any exaggerations about them or their lives making them believable , there s really no other place to go with the plot, other than keep it plain and simple And that s what we got No major twists or turns, no major drama, no major nothing Just a natural flow, similar to what you d probably find in real life if you owned a spa or had millions in the bank Like I said, th [...]

    Essence is a delightful read, and delightfully steamy read from beginning to end The lovely and lonely widow, Haven Jameson, has worked hard to create a spa without rival, but her world is turned upside down when the land owner of the adjacent property suddenly turns vindictive, and the buyer of that property, Pace Daniels, threatens both her heart, and the financial stability of her spa The writing is good, the scene setting luscious, the characters well drawn, and vividly portrayed and hot The [...]

    I was captivated from the opening scene and could easily imagine spending a week at Essence, Haven Jameson s luxury spa in St Augustine Throughout the novel, Ms Lucas shares vivid descriptions of the spa s wonderful amenities, designed to mend broken souls, in particular, Pace Daniels, a pro golfer fighting his own private demons While the chemistry between Haven and Pace sizzles, there are several obstacles Pace and his mega developer brother are planning to build a resort next door that could [...]

    Beyond the Pages
    Off the bat, I must say that this book was not what I was expecting It was, at the root, a good story, in the sense of being about two people finding love after suffering great losses ButEssence lacked something It was too quick, too raunchy, too predictable The romance was eclipsed, in my opinion, by the hot and steamy This was the case with Haven and Pace, as well as with Sally and Jason After a while, the cliches took over I guess I could sum up my review by saying that it was not enough of t [...]

    I have received an ARC via NetGalley Reading this story I felt like I was in a spa myself and it made this book a perfect read to prepare for a vacation or to read it while tanning yourself on the beach.However, I wasn t that impressed with the idea that Haven and Sally needed men in their life to make their happiness complete Hm, yeah.Putting that aside, I enjoyed reading Essence , there was no unnecessary drama but lots of emotions instead Haven and Pace and Mackenzie Lucas writing style was e [...]

    Escapism at its Finest Busy woman dream of the ocean, spa days, and yoga sessions Mackenzie Lucas adds a healthy dose of romance and she takes the reader to an intimate oasis She electrifies the senses with vivid imagery and keeps the tension high as she puts her characters through an emotional and physical riptide Essence

    Christine
    This was a really sweet story and I really enjoyed it The reason it gets 3 instead of 4 stars is just one of reading kirks I just don t like stories when both characters are falling in love with best friend or brothers I get invested in one romance and usually end up skipping the other That s is just me It if you like when there is than one romance the you will love it I received this arc for an honest review.

    InD"tale Magazine
    3.5 5.0The idea of two women running a destination spa is refreshing, and although it is explained that Haven was once a massage therapist, it s doubtful she d lay hands on a client considering her position as owner.Read full review in the 2014 June July Double Issue of InD tale Magazine.

    Ashley
    I really liked the main characters I love it when both are damaged in some way, it makes for better chemistry in my opinion I also loved the secondary characters I am one who loves happy endings so I am a fan of the ending.

    Amanda Peake
    I am currently at Jacksonville Beach about thirty minutes from St Augustine so this read had me trapped I loved the characters that were FLAWED but relateable The story line was well written and it makes you curious what next Thanks for allowing me to read this book

    Brenda Freeman
