Title:  The Suit  
Author:  B.N. Toler
Publication Date: September 10th 2014 by self

Plot:   What happens when two dreams collide?

Fed up with the farm life and his one-time love of training horses, John Wilson has traded his tattered boots and jeans for power suits and cufflinks. Through hard work and determination, John has just graduated from law school and is focused on a fresh start. Refusing to let his bitter past hinder his future, John is intent on moving forward with his new life. 

Except there’s one last thing he has to do—settle old debts before he can truly move on.

Unfortunately, settling debts involves him returning to a life he’s worked hard to forget. A mind-numbing summer working on a horse farm awaits him, and he’s dreading every damn minute of it. 

Edie James is mourning the loss of her grandfather when John Wilson shows up in his perfectly tailored suit, reeking sexiness and city elegance—everything she’s not. Their meeting is less than pleasant as they both distastefully size up one another. 

She thinks he’s arrogant and a white-collar yuppie. 

He thinks she’s a simple, goody two-shoes farm girl. 

Edie’s grandfather made a new will before he passed leaving stipulations in order for Edie to inherit the family farm. And as if that wasn’t enough of a challenge, the suit has to work on the farm with her for three months to settle a debt he owed to her grandfather. 

And he’s moving in with her.

With a rocky start, the two seemingly polar opposites call a truce and attempt to be friends. As their unexpected friendship blooms, an attraction develops and both realize their first impression of each other is far from the truth. Now this once dreaded summer is set to be the hottest and most unforgettable they've ever had.

B.N. Toler is one of those underestimated writers that you find, but, once you give her the chance, you'll realize that she's a total gem.

I personally had the luxury of being introduced to B.N. through her The Healer series and after that I was totally hooked on her writing and was curious for more.

For this particular read, I was highly intrigued with how she was going to pull off a story like this. But, she managed to do it with steam, laughs, style, and most importantly, heart.


The Suit drives home a lot of realistic values and situations of adversity that we face in life, while mixing in factors such as drive, determination, and irrevocable attraction into the picture.

I loved the characterizations of both Edie and Johnny and their chemistry. Can you say sizzling much? I had to fan myself from all of the sexual tension they brought to each page they were in proximity of each other.

Not to mention... their personal plights were just genuine and honest that you just couldn't help but feel with them through all of their ups, downs, struggles and triumphs. It was so authentic and veritable.

So, in short: I REALLY liked this novel, and while I do like that this is being made into a series, I just wish I could have been informed beforehand. Other than that, great first installment Ms. Toler!! I can’t wait for more Edie and “The Suit” a.k.a Johnny!!♥♥

My Rating:

“Why do girls like this? You know, cheesy sex books?” I lean on the island and watch as she begins placing the items from the bag into the fridge. My eyes inevitably watch her ass the entire time. Her little hot pink panties are playing peekaboo from under her jeans, taunting me, as she moves.
“Why do guys like cheesy porn?” she counters as she shuts the fridge and whips open a cabinet door. I can’t tell if my questions are making her uncomfortable, but she seems like this conversation doesn’t bother her.
“Porn is different than that.” I nod at the book.
“How so?” This time she spins around and leans against the counter so she can watch me answer.
“You can see it. Naked bodies and such.” I shrug.
“Hmm,” she mumbles and turns back to the grocery bag. “Porn gives you an image. You only see what they want you to see. Books let you fill in the blanks, make it what you want. Books give you the idea of fantasy, but you get to perfect the lover in your mind. In porn we watch them touch one another, in a book, with your imagination, it’s like they’re touching you.”
Her answer is so in depth and honest, it takes me a moment to respond. “So, you use these books to…” I stop myself. What the fuck am I asking her? I just met this girl. My mother would roll over in her grave if she could see me now. You can’t ask a girl, let alone a farm girl, if she masturbates to her erotica books. Edie chuckles and glances at me over her shoulder. “Suit.” She says my nickname I’m less than thrilled about. “I’m a twenty-three-year-old farm girl with no boyfriend living in the country. Not that it’s any of your business, but yes. Sometimes it leads to that.”
My dick twitches with excitement. She masturbates. Sweet mother of Jesus, I’ll never get that fucking image out of my head. I wonder if she has a vibrator or if she—

“So listen,” she interrupts my journey on the highway to hell thinking about her pleasuring herself. “I know we got off to a rocky start, but I’d like to start over. I have a feeling maybe being here isn’t your cup of tea and I thought maybe we could at least be friends.”
