Hey y’all…welcome to DAY 4 of BLOGMAS: BEST BOOKS OF 2018! The very awesome and wonderful blogger, Sophie, over at Beware of the Reader is hosting this challenge where I will attempt to post about the BEST OF THE BEST in contemporary romance every day this month…Go check out her blog, you won’t regret it!😍
Today’s post is the BEST ROMANTIC COMEDY! I love this trope, it’s so great when an author can make me smile or laugh. The book I chose today definitely had me LOLing everywhere! Even the title of today’s choice makes me smile, it’s so clever.
From Goodreads: The Pecker Briefs (Legal Affairs #7) by Sawyer Bennett
I never thought a pecker would get me in so much trouble.
I mean, sure… if you’re talking about a certain anatomical feature of mine that the ladies just love. Given my bachelor status and appreciation for all things curvy and feminine, I could absolutely see that. But a different pecker is making my life much harder than it needs to be.
My name is Ford Daniels, partner at the law firm of Knight & Payne, and my latest case has me wading through the finer points of peckers—woodpeckers that is. Specifically, the red-cockaded woodpecker. I swear, I can’t make this stuff up but that’s what the sexy-as-hell blonde chained to a tree told me this morning.
Her name is Viveka Jones and she is so much more than a pretty face. She’s got wit, charm, and razor-sharp smarts. Turns out my client is looking to bulldoze the red-cockaded woodpecker’s natural habitat in favor of a multimillion-dollar subdivision and the sexy attorney with legs for days (and days), just happens to be counsel for an animal rights group looking to put a halt to construction.
My client’s pissed, but all I can think about is getting Viveka across the table from me. And then on the table underneath me. Perhaps up against the wall. And then—
Well, let’s just say when it’s all said and done, I’m hoping the red-cockaded woodpecker isn’t the only pecker that gets some attention from Miss Viveka Jones.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
THE PECKER BRIEFS is book #7 in the Legal Affairs series but is a contemporary standalone so no worries about jumping right into this bad boy!
Viveka and Ford are both lawyers who meet when Ford finds Viveka chained to his client’s tree as she protests the removal of a woodpecker. Yes, a WOODPECKER! Need I say more??
Vikeka (Viv, Veka, V) and Ford’s romance goes from zero to sixty in about 2.7 seconds! And in true Sawyer Bennett excellence, they are SEXY, SEXY, SEXY! I have such a huge lady crush on Veka!! I mean she’s smart, beautiful, confident but above all she’s incredibly humble and down to earth. Dare I even say…LOW MAINTENANCE?? And Ford? Well, I’ll be the first to admit that I love a hot tatted bad boy but there’s something about a sexy alpha all buttoned up in a thousand dollar suit too!
I just loved everything about this one from the colors on the cover to the funny as hell name to the spectacular characters to the bit of suspense thrown in. It’s no secret that Ms. Bennett is one of my go to authors. There’s a reason why and this book is the perfect example. Another Bennett book for my READ AGAIN E-SHELF! Told from dual POVs with a happy ending. I received, read and voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.
How do you feel about ROM COM? Do you read this trope? Have a fabulous day y’all!😎
