Danger, Sweetheart by MaryJanice Davidson
“Blake Tarbell has a town to save. Rich, carefree, and used to the Vegas party lifestyle, Blake is thrown for a curve when his former cocktail-waitress mother pleads he go back to her roots to save the town she grew up in. Blake's used to using money to solve his problems, but when he arrives in Sweetheart, North Dakota, this city boy has to trade in his high-priced shoes for a pair of cowboy boots...and he's about to get a little help from the loveliest lady in town...
Natalie Lane's got no time for newbies. The prettiest gal to ever put on a pair of work gloves, there's nothing she can't do to keep a farm up and running. But when a handsome city-slicker rolls into town with nothing but bad farmer's instincts and good intentions, Natalie's heartstrings are pulled. She's about to teach him a thing or two about how to survive in Sweetheart. And he's about to teach her a thing or two about love...”
This book is a contemporary romantic comedy…of sorts. It is simplistically sweet and nefariously evil.
It is also the mother of all tropes –You MUST read MJD’s Author’s Note before you start this book or you will just think it is the worst piece of drivel that ever came out of an author’s keyboard.
I loved this book and I hated it. I laughed so hard in spots that I thought I would wet myself; some spots I hated. I was curious as to how the book was going to end and then I lost interest and then I got curious again. It was the kind of book that should either be shelved on your comfort read shelf, or throw with great strength against the wall. This book was easy to understand and at the same time filled with none of the information you needed. The romance ends on the expected HEA note starting with the expected über steamy sex scene.
This book is filled with twists and turns and also stagnates. It has some of the coarsest language I have ever read outside of …well I don’t know what, and it also has pithy and deep language and footnotes. If I had to read the word ‘douche’ one more time, my head would have exploded.
Yes there really is such a thing a ‘horse-porn’. *shiver*
What can I say, it has something for everyone! I can’t wait for Jakes book.
