Getting to Her
Erin Nicholas - 2015
You do *not* need to read this novella to enjoy the novel. This is strictly bonus content! It can be read before or after that book, but it is not a stand alone story. You've been warned :) Dear Reader, I knew from the first chapter of book one in the Sapphire Falls series that Hailey Conner was going to have a story. And I knew, as soon as I typed the words “Tyler Bennett is such an ass” that it would be with Tyler Bennett! Over the next five books and two novellas, their story developed and I realized that it was just as big as these two personalities. Before I typed one word of Getting Over It, their current day love story, I knew that there was more about their story that readers would want to know and I planned to write this novella about how it all started. All of this happens before you see them love, fight, laugh, cry and finally figure it out in Getting Over It. Even though I knew all of this happened in the past, I wrote the book first. And when it was all said and done, I realized that reading about their now and their future would make people even more curious about their past. So technically Getting to Her comes before Getting Over It, but it can definitely also be read after. Either way, I think you’ll agree that these two have worked hard to get to their happily ever after. One of the best surprises in life, in my opinion, is finding out there’s more to the story. Happy Reading! Erin The Sapphire Falls series (in order): Getting Out of Hand, book one Getting Worked Up, book two Getting Dirty, book three Getting In the Spirit, Christmas novella Getting In the Mood, Valentine's novella Getting It All, book four Getting Lucky, book five Getting to Her, novella, book six companion Getting Over It, book six
