The Hang Up by Tawna Fenske

I thought this book was really cute, it had kind of a lighthearted feel to it throughout the book. It starts really kind of amusingly with our heroine, Miriam meeting our hero, Jason. Jason of course is covered in mud and has been locked out of his house, but Miriam mistakenly believes him to be a homeless person. I loved their kind of hooky first interaction between them. It’s not really a tone that was kept up through the relationship, but it was a fun way to start and got me hooked. Part of what really appealed to me was that Jason and Miriam have a work connection. They don’t work for the same company, but Jason’s company is using Miriam’s company’s services, so any relationship between the two could cause problems in their work life and I liked that whole dynamic of should we really be doing this. So I liked Miriam kind of way more than I liked Jason. I think maybe I understood her better. She’s really driven and it shows through her work with her company. But she also has kind of a sad backstory that plays into how she handles her feelings toward Jason. Her father died after a mountain climbing accident, so for her being involved with someone who likes to take risks and do adventure sports, is not at all something she is wanting to do.

Protector for Hire by Tawna Fenske

I don’t know about you guys, but I totally love the whole tortured hero thing. There is just something about a guy who is a little bit on the damaged side coming through a story on the other side, a bit more healed then he thought possible thanks to a good woman. This was definitely one of those books. So Janelle is our heroine, and she’s definitely in a tough spot. She used to be married to a crazy guy, who was everything she thought he wasn’t. Turns out when you marry a guy thinking he is a successful pharmacy rep, there is apparently the off chance he might actually be a heroin trafficker who has seriously psychopathic tendencies. Oh and when you divorce him, he goes nuts and wants to find you to either kidnap you away or kill you. Not really good options. So Janelle does the other thing she can, she goes into hiding with her sister’s fiance’s brother, Schwartz. I liked Janelle a lot. She’s funny, and kind, and easily adaptable. I loved how she took to living out in the woods in her own special way, drinking espresso and collecting clay for mud facials. As for Schwartz, well you can’t help but feel for the guy. He’s in some kind of self-inflicted exile and basically hasn’t seen his family in 10 years. He’s a vet, and he came back from the war with some serious scars, but emotional and physical. So suddenly living with someone, especially a […]
