Book Review: Mr. August by Jan Romes

Hi all,

Reading one of Jan Romes novels is always a pleasure. That's why I read them! I know that I will always be entertained. Here is a review of the latest Jan Romes novel that I've read, MR. AUGUST. Also, be sure to check out her "Texas Boys Falling Fast" series including Married to Maggie and Keeping Kylee. You can read more of my reviews of Jan's books below.


Mr. August

Jan Romes

Fashion designer Libby Griffin has had the week from hell--terminated from her job and heart-wrenching news from the doctor. Hoping for time alone to regroup, Libby rents a cabin on Grand Lake St. Mary's for five months. Right away she meets the most irritating man on the planet, who also happens to be drop-dead delicious.

Recently divorced author Maxwell August has a book due, and his muse has gone into hiding. With a chip on his shoulder, his writing in stuck-mode, he heads to the lake only to encounter a monumental distraction with blonde hair and hazel eyes.

Will these two right-brainers allow the off-the-charts attraction brewing between them to grow? Or deny it to focus on the things they think are more important and miss a chance at forever?

My Five Star Review:

Fashion designer Libby Griffin is hiding out for the winter at a lake cabin to lick her wounds and concentrate on her design career. Not only has her friend and employer fired her, but she's learned some bad news from her doctor. As hard as it is, she's going to try to push away the past and look forward to starting over. Then enters Mr. August from the cabin next door. Maxwell August is a bestselling author who has to finish his latest novel and get it to his publisher on time. He locks himself away in the cabin next door to Libby to work and not be disturbed. Except the sight of Libby disturbs him completely—in a good way. But he's not looking for a romantic encounter any more than Libby is. Unfortunately, they are finding it hard to resist each other.

Once again, Jan Romes has written a witty, heartwarming romance with colorful characters and a fun, fast-paced plot. Libby has her own sense of style while Max is more conservative, yet somehow he finds he cannot keep his mind off of her. Through a series of mishaps, they find themselves both fighting with each other and unable to keep their hands off of each other. I liken Ms. Romes romances to the witty romances written by Janet Evanovich before she became famous for her Stephanie Plum series. Cute, fun, sometimes crazy, and definitely endearing. You can never go wrong with a romance by Jan Romes.
