Follow the rough-around-the-edges Hennessys and the women who snag their hearts in DIRTY WORK, a contemporary romance anthology with novellas by Amanda Heger, Harper St. George, and Tara Wyatt.

Jennifer’s Review: 

*I received an ARC of this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review*

Uprooted brings the Sunday eye-candy into the limelight.

As Natalie’s friend/lawyer and her friends ogle the shirtless man mowing the yard across the street, as they do every week, she just wants to leave. She doesn’t need to ogle some stranger, but then he looks up and the past catches up with the present like a freight chain.

Now that she’s back in town, even if it’s only for a short time, Chris will do any and everything to get her to stay. He’s never forgotten that summer they spent together and he wants to get to know her again.

Beware of Chapter Ten, it should be labeled epilogue. The story starts to hit a turning a point and bam you turn the page and it jumps forward.

 

Revved is a story of lost but never forgotten love.

Rachel fell a little too hard too fast and her little scare had her running away from the one man she ever loved, but many years later she couldn’t resist, she needed the closure, to hear his phone was no longer in service, or for it to belong to someone else. What she got was Sage, and hearing his voice brought back everything she’d given up.

Sage never stopped loving the woman who walked out on him and broke his heart, although he sure had tried, and one call, his name in her voice, and all thoughts that he’d moved on were blown to smithereens.

I loved how he called her Princess and how even though their words were saying one thing you could actually feel the truth behind the lies.

 

Nailed was the sweetest story and quite possibly the hottest in the anthology.

The world is a much smaller place than we realize and Charlie figures that out when her neighbor runs through her fence and into her back porch. She could care less about him, but the man he arranged to fix her property is none other than the man she met online who not only was she falling for but who stood her up and then did a complete disappearing act.

Adam knew the moment he saw Charlie he needed to apologize. He hadn’t been ready, but now he is, and he’ll do anything within his power to make her realize that this time he’s not going anywhere.

The verbal sparring between these two is hilarious, especially when it comes to scenarios like Charlie being locked out of her house.
