Never say never . . .

Romance isn’t an option for Holly Greenwood. With her wedding planner career on the line she needs to stay focused, and that means pleasing her demanding boss, not getting distracted by her mind-alteringly hot neighbor . . .

Ex-Marine Kevin Vandemeer craves normalcy. Instead, he has a broken-down old house in need of a match and some gasoline, a meddling family, and the uncanny ability to attract the world’s craziest women. At least that last one he can fix: he and his buddies have made a pact to swear off women, and this includes his sweetly sexy new neighbor.

After one hot night that looks a whole lot like a disaster in the light of day, Kevin and Holly are about to learn that true love doesn’t play by the rules . . .

***Stephenee – #NerdGirlSteph’s  Review***
This is the first book that I have read by author Denise Grover Swank, but it will not be the last!! She writes funny, chemistry filled, drama ridden, angst that grabs the readers attention from the very start and never lets it go! The reader feels like they are instantly part of the book – they make instant connections to the characters and instead of seeing the story through the eyes of the reader it is more like seeing it through the eyes of a friend.

I love the character’s dynamics, the fact that not everyone gets along or likes each other and the caring that the reader shows through her stories. Holly is responsible for her grandmother, she is missing key family members and at times is so overwhelmed that the reader can’t help but to relate to her and feel for her. Kevin is not sure what he wants from life, he is so used to structure, rigidness and being in charge that it is almost too much to come home and not have to be on point for everything. The two of them have instant chemistry but a list of things that will come between them about 2 miles long….do they make it work? Can they?

The plot is fun, a bit predictable at times, but it works for the author and the story. I love being able to sit back and enjoy a book that I don’t have to “think” in. I can go with the flow and understand everything that is going on. I love the secondary characters and can’t wait to see what happens next in this series! If you haven’t read anything by this author, don’t miss out! Grab this one or one of her others and you are sure to make a new favorite author for your list!

Enjoy, this book is easily going to become one of your favorites –
