From Goodreads: Her life is an endless string of disasters. When Misty McNeil is arrested for breaking and entering, calling Tanner Theroit to bail her out seems like a good idea…until he asks what’s so important she’d risk going to jail for. Admitting she was trying to retrieve a gift he’d given isn’t something she wants to confess. Misty’s night in the slammer is only the tip of the iceberg. Her life quickly takes a turn for the worse. With only one week to move out of her apartment, she turns – yet again – to Tanner to bail her out. Tanner is determined to prove he wants nothing less than all of her. Too bad Misty has a been-there-done-that attitude when it comes to relationships. But…will Tanner be the one man who can offer her a deal she can’t refuse? Content warning, explicit sex, strong language and a sexy, hard bodied construction worker turned executive.

 

I normally don’t read novellas, but I’m thinking I may have to change that way of thinking. I thoroughly enjoyed this one and I think that’s because I didn’t think that novellas necessarily had the type of in-depth character development that I enjoy when I’m reading regular novels. This one had it though and I loved reading how Misty and Tanner dealt with the situation at hand as well as how they struggled with their feelings for each other. I’ve always liked romances where the characters have always had a thing for each other. I think that’s because it reminds me of all of the stories that would play out in my head as a kid when I thought that I’d end up with the guy I had a crush on for so long. 🙂 Of course, I’ve grown up and realized that doesn’t happen very often and it’s very good that it doesn’t, but some people do find love in this way and it’s really fun to read about. It was a very quick read, but there’s a lot more to it than just an entertaining romance. I’d tell any romance fan that is looking for a new author with rich entertaining stories to look no further. 🙂

I just want to say that I apologize for my MIA status for the last couple of weeks. I’ve been very busy and then I was really sick for a while. I’m back in action and am about to start cranking out the reviews! And vlogs! On my youtube channel.

From Goodreads: Artist Jennette Jacobson clashes with a handsome visitor at a gallery show. He claims that artwork is just “more junk to dust.” Ouch. When she finds a small metal object on the floor, she uses it later in a new collage.

Her world soon crumbles with family problems and a friend’s betrayal. And wouldn’t you know that the same hunky guy claims he lost an important key the night of the show! When Steve Harmon offers to buy Jenn’s work, she refuses to sell. He’ll just trash it to free his precious key.

Or is it possible that key will unlock her future happiness?

 

I read this book in one sitting. I thought it was really cute and exactly the kind of story I was looking to read. It was a very cute romance that showed how people can have an affect on people that they never would have expected. Both the hero and heroine changes the other one’s life dramatically without expecting it. I liked the way art played such an important part in the story, it seemed like a very unique way for people to meet and I soaked up every little bit of this story. This story was also very well written and moved along at a very good pace. There was never any part of the story where I felt like we were getting too much backstory or too much inner monologue, everything felt perfectly timed. I would definitely recommend this story to anyone looking for something very easy and fun to read. This is the kind of romance where there is actually a connection between the two characters and you walk away from it feeling like they really did want to be together. 🙂
