Off the Hook by Laura Drewry

I know Laura Drewry’s work, so even though I am a big hater of fishing (don’t even eat seafood of any kind), I figured I would it a go because I like her writing style. I was once again impressed with her writing style, she has great flow when it comes to how she writes her books, and a plot that really took me along for an enjoyable couple of hours. Plus I happen to be one of those readers who absolutely love seeing people who used to be married be forced back into situations where they are together, gotta love watching the sparks fly, both in drama and in chemistry. So when the book starts, we meet our lovely heroine, Kate, who I seriously adore. Kate is everything I want to be when I grow up, she is hard working, not afraid to get her hands dirty, she’s responsible with her cash, and in spite of all the setbacks she’s had in her life, her ambition has not faltered. She goes for what she wants. And part of being able to move up the food chain and the company she works for means going to spend weeks at a run down resort fixing it up in hopes that her company gets to buy the place. Of course she never expected to see her ex-husband there after so many years, hell she never even saw him when they were getting divorced let alone talked to him, so why expect to […]

How Forever Feels by Laura Drewry

I adore this series! I have had such a fun time reading the series and watching the women of this group fall in love. I have to admit that I was totally looking forward to reading Maya’s story. When the beginning of the series started, we were introduced to Maya, and all we really know about her and her situation is that she caught her husband cheating on her and lets just say he was a super jerk. So I wanted Maya’s story, I wanted to see her get her happy ending. And I have to say I am glad I had to wait for her to get her romance, she needed time to move on from the jerk that was her ex. But the fact that she falls for the guy who is her ex’s best friend, oh my gosh that just made it even better. One of the things that stuck out to me first right off the bat about this book is the dynamic between Jack and Maya. When Maya and Jack run into each other at a bar, they are just so adorable right off the bat. You can tell that the two of them really care about each other, and had an easy going friendship, even though they hadn’t really spoken in years, because of the break up between Maya and her ex. However, one of the most frustrating things about this book was how beholden Jack felt to Maya’s ex’s family. I mean he […]

Prima Donna by Laura Drewry

I really enjoyed this book, and I think the ultimate reason why is because the writing was just really enjoyable. I really like the way Laura writes, it’s really just so easy to get wrapped up in the story and in the characters. I also really like that this book was so character driven, there isn’t some extreme circumstance that pulls these people together or pushes them apart. These characters are living lives that I think anyone could identify with, and I think that’s why it is so easy to like them both. So when the book starts Regan is closing up her business, the business she was so proud of, and suddenly she is unemployed and in dire needs of a new job. The thing that I really related to about Regan was that she has these huge walls built around her, and when people ask her how she is doing she always responds with fine. I know so many people who do that. Heck, I have done that a million times before. Regan has some serious things on her plate, including a mother who is sick. I respect so much about Regan, she takes such good care of her mother, even though her mothers illness hurts her so much, I loved that she works hard to keep her in a good facility and not just let her go to a cheaper one. I think that says so much about her character. So as for Carter, he is a […]

Plain Jayne by Laura Drewry

As an avid book reader its always cool to me when an author makes the main character have something to do in the book world, be it editor, author, or bookstore owner. It’s like starting out you already know you have something in common with the character, and that makes it that much easier to like the character straight off the bat. Which is always a good thing. I’ve actually read quite a few books lately where the two main characters grew up as childhood friends, and it’s a theme that has been working for me. I really liked that the author addressed the whole can men and women really just be friends, because no one in that town thought it was possible, even though the two of them had been friends for so long and nothing had happened between them. Jayne comes back to town after a really long time away, like years away, because her grandmother had passed away and left her the bookstore she owned. Turns out she hadn’t seen her best friend Nick in four years either. See Nick used to be married, and when his wife passed away and Jayne showed up at the funeral, the wife’s family threw a fit and Nick kicked her out. To say that would be painful would be an understatement. So Jayne is back and Nick wants to pick up their friendship right where it left off. The bookstore is a disaster and on the verge of being condemned […]
