Oh Friday! I thought you were never coming back again. I missed you! It's been a fairly quiet week. Just the usual 2 or 3 sports practices each day. And a few more days closer to summer and tanning season. A sweet surprise mid week made my struggles disappear for awhile:) If your looking for something sweet might I suggest the following book.......
Lost in you by Lauren Dane
It hasn’t been easy for Joe Harris to live down his not-so-honorable past, but the military made him a better man. He’s determined to make up for past mistakes, starting with coming home to care for his ailing father.
Things are going as planned until his best friend’s little sister comes barreling into his life. Funny, quick talking, smart, beautiful, she’s a temptation he tries—and fails—to resist.
When Beth Murphy hears Joe is back in town, she makes sure she’s the first on his welcoming committee. Though he tries to pretend he’s gruff and unworthy of her, she sees the man who spoils his dog, who touches her like she’s precious. Cherished. But there’s one wall she can’t break down—the truth about what’s happening at home.
On the night the nature of his father’s illness becomes painfully, publicly apparent, Joe does the right thing—push Beth as far away as possible. But if he thought she’d go away quietly, he’s about to learn she’s made of sterner stuff....
Warning: Slow-talking, sexy mechanic with a drawl, looking to get a Murphy right out of her underpants. Quick-talking woman who knows what she wants and has a weak spot for the aforementioned slow-talking mechanic and his dancing dog. Bad words. Polly Chase behind the wheel again.
I'll admit I was hesitant. Would I like this book as much as I do my beloved Chase brothers??? The answer.... YES!!! I don't know what it is about Lauren Dane that makes me love her work but keep it up! I think it may have alot to do with the fact that it's believable. I live in a small town (sadly no one in my town looks like these men) and it's just good ol' fashion romance. No shifters or paranormal stuff going on just friends and family living life. I have to give Beth credit she has way more nerve than me. I could never be that straight forward when there is someone I would be interested in going out with. I stopped several times while reading and thought to myself, hey I can do that. Then reality sets in and I realize I lack the nerve and people skills to do or say those things LOL. In the meantime I will sit back and continue reading and waiting for the perfect man that knows to order extra dessert:)
I give this book 5 chocolate dipped strawberries and a piece of pie. By the way what is fried pie? Please tell me it's not deep fried!.
