I read two books that were actually similar and I wasn't expecting them to be.
AND I'm thinking 3.5 stars for both. First of all I really wish I would have read the first books in both series. They are considered standalone's but I think I would of had a better idea of the characters going into to these. Both h's are misjudged about the person they are without really knowing them. They are both closed off and hiding something from the past. The H's are both "big" guys that are very sweet. And both H and h have sort off pined for each other for a while. Home to Stay has a mild/moderate steam level if you like the steamy scenes in books and Drama Queen it's very mild practically nonexistent. I enjoyed both books and will do a full review of Drama Queen which was a review copy given to me by the author.
Here is the blurb for
Willow Parsons’s two
new best friends are getting married, putting her squarely on the
sidelines of romance—which suits her just fine. After the nightmarish
situation she escaped from, featuring the ultimate Mr. Wrong, she is
more than happy to spend her days slinging drinks in Dempsey’s Bar &
Grill, and her nights alone. But her Anchor Island refuge has just one
catch: muscle-bound charmer Randy Navarro.
Everyone in town knows
that Randy, owner of the local fitness club, is a giant teddy bear.
Everyone, it seems, except for Willow. He’s convinced that her avoidance
is more than just playing hard to get, and is determined to uncover the
secrets that shadow her lovely eyes. But when old fears are dragged
into the light, can Randy get Willow to stay and fight for their love…or
will she take flight, leaving him and Anchor Island behind?
Home to Stay is a charming, romantic tale about following your heart to find where you belong.
Over all this was a cute story about a girl hiding and a guy helping her find herself while trying to get her to realize she wants more. This is a Contemporary Romance with characters being in their late twenties to mid thirties. I recommend reading the first two books in the series before this one. Now I have to go back and read the first two. :) This book was from the Kindle First program hence the reason I didn't have the first two books. An enjoyable read told in the third person.
