This is my first attempt at the COYER Challenge (Clean Out Your E-Reader) that Lexxie @ (un)Conventional Bookviews just introduced me to! Basically, the challenge is to read and review as many books as possible from my TBR. There’s two ways to do this. First, the NO RULES, READ ALL YOU CAN challenge. Second, a SUMMER READING LIST challenge of thirty books. Click on the link to take you to the official sign-up post over at the COYER web-site where a complete list of rules and links can be found.
I’ll be doing the NO RULES, READ ALL YOU CAN challenge and I’ll post my progress throughout the summer. This should be FUN!😁
Thanks to this year’s hostesses: Michelle @ Because Reading is Better than Real Life, Stormi @ Books, Movies, Reviews! Oh My! and Berls @ Fantasy is More Fun.
So, FINALLY, here’s my first entry from my COYER summer reading list! YAY!
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
It’s been awhile since I’ve read anything from this author (I read the Inked Brotherhood series several years ago) but reading this book reminded me why I enjoy Jo Raven. To be honest, it took me a few tries to get into Matt and Octavia’s (Tay) story. I don’t want to give away any spoilers but I will say that Matt is a huge donkey in the beginning! It’s understandable why Matt was such a surly jerk and his need to try to raise his family on his own but I didn’t get how he seemed to be completely devastated, yet quickly became so enamored with Tay. But the further I read, the more I began to like Matt and his two adorable kids. He’s the definition of dark and broody and his flawed character managed to grow on me! Octavia was super sweet and I loved how devoted to her family she was. She really had to grow a backbone to deal with Matt’s “back off” attitude. This is an older man/younger woman trope but it also has some suspenseful moments and a few intriguing twists. In the end, this turned out to be a pretty enjoyable read! Told from dual POVs with a happy ending.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
Matthew Hansen is the kind of handsome that has grown women whispering behind their hands and giggling like schoolgirls.
Dark, tall and mysterious, he’s a newcomer to our little town. He’s a gritty, grease-covered mechanic, and a single daddy.
Plus he’s looking for a nanny – and I am desperately looking for a job.
Sounds like the perfect deal.
Only he’s a jerk. An uncivilized, hulking brute. Zero manners. Zero interest in making me feel welcome in his home. Downright rude.
But oh so sexy.
And I need the job. I can do this.
One thing is for sure: I can’t fall for the Caveman. No matter how sexy he is. How mysterious. How tortured.
That’s the only rule – and one I’m about to break.
