City slicker Ami Jordan was just dumped by her back-stabbing boyfriend, has no job prospects, and can’t find a decent cup of coffee in the entire state of Vermont. The last thing she needs is a sexy, bearded lumberjack complicating her life. Even if he’s smart, talented, and has the hottest ass she’s ever seen.

Tree house builder, environmental champion, and Bulldog owner Marcus Anderson has no patience for flatlanders with an attitude. But when landscape designer Ami Jordan shows up at his log cabin, he suddenly develops a hankering for a high-maintenance city gal. Now his house looks like a jungle, his recycling is in disarray, and his libido’s on fire.

He’s a lumberjack in love.

This is a rather cute story! I wasn’t in love with it – it was a little light and sweet for my tastes – but that could be because I’ve been reading crack-like crazy books lately and my taste-buds could be damaged.

I enjoyed the two main characters but I wasn’t the biggest Ami fan. She was a bit too sarcastic and complaining (for me) to people she didn’t know very well. She seemed to have a complaint on her lips quite frequently. But maybe her sense of humor and mine didn’t jive.

I really liked Marcus. He was kinda hot and very kind. And had patience coming out of his ears.

Most of the book is pretty light and sweet…but the ending felt a little abrupt and Ami was a little mean in her actions. But I could understand that she had been sorta pushed into a relationship without time to think.

To stop his brother from an unsuitable marriage, Nikias Dranias holds the woman he believes to be Daryle prisoner on his island. However, it is her sister Diona that Nikias has mistakenly held, not believing her story that she too had come to stop the marriage of the two siblings.

Soon however, sparks are flying between the two, as they find themselves fiercely attracted to each other.

 

 

 

 

 

This shit right here…reminds me why I have a love/hate relationship with SPAs.

This is like…a poorly written excuse for a Harlequin romance. It certainly has all the tropes of a Harlequin:

-Beautiful virgin
-ruthless rich Greek tycoon billionaire type who for some reason does no fact checking or research
-completely unrealistic situations that require lots of money
