Ward is vivacious, spontaneous, and confident—except when she’s around the man
who stole her heart years earlier, strikingly handsome, quiet, and reliable
Pete Lacroux. After years of trying to get his attention and overwhelmed from
dealing with her mother’s new cougar lifestyle, Jenna’s giving up on Peter—and
is ready to explore other men.
the eldest of five siblings, with an alcoholic father to care for, boat
craftsman Pete Lacroux always does the right thing and has no time for a real
relationship. He’s looking forward to seeing his friend Jenna, a welcome
distraction who’s so damn sexy and so painfully shy that she equally entertains
and confuses him.
Jenna picks up a hard-bodied construction worker, jealousy ignites Pete’s true
feelings, and he’s powerless to ignore the desires for Jenna he never realized
he had. But Pete’s not the quiet guy he
appears to be, and his life is anything but conducive to a relationship. Can
Jenna handle the real Pete Lacroux—the sexiest, most passionate alpha male
she’s ever seen—or will she crack under pressure? And can Pete reclaim the life
he once had without tearing apart his family?

This is the second book I have read by Melissa Foster, I was gifted this book
in exchange for an honest review so here goes....
This book is one
of the biggest loads of cheese filled, cheese flavoured, cheese I’ve ever
Do you know
what.... What’s not to love about a cheesy love story?
I’m not sure how
old Melissa Foster is but regardless she read Mills & Boon, id actually lay
money on the fact that she loved Mills & Boon. Well Melissa so do I, so
does my mom and so did my grandma. In my opinion Mills & Boon is so
incredibly successful because what they do they do exceptionally well.
That’s how I feel
about this author, Melissa Foster does old school cheesy romance incredibly
well, you know exactly what you are going to get and you know that you are
going to enjoy it.
Jenna is a
classic firecracker with a bit of a saucy edge and Pete is an old fashioned
gentleman, this is classic romance territory and them as a couple works
I liked that they
had a deeper connection than just sex and I loved the relationship between
Jenna and her girlfriends.
My main issue
with this book is that it hinted at being a tiny bit smuttier than normal, hell
anal was mentioned. Unfortunately this book is a bit of a tease as it was straight
down the line vanilla, nothing wrong with it but I did have my hopes up for a
bit of smut lol.
I enjoyed this book;
I read a wide variety of romance from YA and NA to contemporary and
dark romances. But I never forget what got me hooked on romance novels to start
off with and that’s stories just like this!!
This is a great
standalone novel and although I’m tempted to read the books before and after I’m
confident that I could pick up another book in the series and not feel confused
or left out of the character loops.
This book is the
perfect book for a hot bath and a glass of wine, for me it just needed a smidge
less cheese so 3.5 stars!
Foster is a wonderful connector of readers and books, a friend of authors, and
a tireless advocate for women. She is the real deal"-- Bestselling
sets Melissa Foster apart are her compelling characters who you care
about... desperately. This is psychological suspense at its most
chilling. I dare you to read the first chapter and not be hooked."

As the title of my blog gives away I read a lot!!! I love the escapism of a good book and sometimes I even enjoy the release I get from moaning about a rubbish book.
Im not sure anyone will ever read my reviews but I'm going to do them anyway.... sometimes I read so much and so quickly that I can completely forget what ive read or the reasons I loved them so this way I can gain a little perspective.
I have a facebook page and I would love it if anyone who reads any of my reviews pops over to FB and gives me a quick like.
Also im constantly looking for recommendations so if you've read something you think I would enjoy please comment and let me know.
