What makes a story that you WANT to read? One that you can't put down? For me, I love great chemistry between the hero and heroine. I love the sass and sizzle between them. I'm not only talking about the physical connection but an intellectual and emotional one. Yes, I like a guy who can smart talk and who doesn't get flustered when I smart talk back at him. Who knew being sarcastic was so sexy??
Isobel Reed writes characters like that. Their connection jumps off the page. From the first moment Lily and Jake meet...it's like a firecracker went off. The two have their share of arguments and deep breathing as they try to get their racing hearts under control. It doesn't hurt when Jake looks like that <<! Cowboys just know how to wear their jeans.
Lucky for me, LOVE TOOLS is now available in ebook and print. Within minutes you can have this engaging romance on your ereader while you curl up under a blanket. Even better, this book is the first in a series about two charismatic people who find each other in Bluestone County. And if you grab that copy of LOVE TOOLS, you'll find a sneak peek at the next story in the series- EXPIRY DATING, featuring a hot sheriff and the woman who wants nothing to do with him. So don't miss your chance to grab a copy of LOVE TOOLS for yourself!
What happens when the king of casual meets the queen of picking the wrong men?
Lily is running. From a dead-end job, a neurotic mother and all the losers she dared to date. Moving halfway across the world to Bluestone County seemed like a good idea at the time. So did reopening her estranged father’s hardware store. But now she isn’t so sure.
Small town living has its perks though. Wide-open space, clean air, and sexy cowboys. Well, one sexy cowboy. Jake. Who also just so happens to be the new bane of her existence. At least when he’s not talking, she can admire the view.
Jake is the king of casual. The love of his life has always been his ranch, and that was fine with him. He never really saw the point in long-term. But all that changes when a mouthy, blonde sasses him into oblivion. He should have known she’d be trouble as soon as he laid eyes on her. Now it’s too late. She’s all he can think about. All he has to do is convince her that he’s finally the right man.
Isobel Reed’s hilarious, emotionally charged romance will have you holding your side with laughter or reaching for a tissue. Reminiscent of small-town romance by Tessa Bailey or Kristen Ashley, you will fall in love with LOVE TOOLS and Isobel Reed’s unique writing style.
After helping her onto Rocky and unashamedly admiring the view, he positioned himself behind her. Being this close to her again brought back memories of their last kiss. It had been three whole days, but it was still all he could think about.
“Um, I’m starting to think you have an ulterior motive.”
He let out a snigger. Her fear had certainly worked in his favour.
“Hey, I’m just passionate about teaching, darlin’.”
A musical giggle vibrated into him. This was going to be fun. Tightening one hand around her waist, while he tugged Rocky’s reign with the other, they began touring the ranch. Her muscles were still tense, so he started off slow.
“So, this how you teach all your guests how to ride?”
“Actually, Sam’s the teacher. I’m just the tour guide.”
“So, you don’t make a habit of rubbing up against your guests under the pretence of a lesson?”
“Is that a hint of jealousy I detect?” His grin managed to stretch even wider.
He did. Pulling her further into his chest, he spoke softly into her ear, “Don’t worry, darlin’, you’re the only woman I want to rub up against.”
Her breath instantly caught, and he couldn’t help but feel smug at the effect he had on her.
