This book comes out on August 25th.
I admit to being a bit of an oddball. I often am drawn to the name of a book and this one could have gone more than one way. I am glad that it went the route it did because a book I read recently was a bit heavy on the sex scenes. I did like that this book wasn't like that. Some of us want more than that and some don't which is why I love books. There is something out there for everyone.
This is a really cute story and it is ideal for summer. Of course you could read it at any time during the year but you could bring this book to the beach with you to read or anywhere for that matter. I really like Jade and confess to having shirt envy. Now I want a Mars Investigation t-shirt. Also how could you not love a book that mentions Firefly? Note to self: Must have a marathon soon. Jade is a single mother with a teenage daughter named Evie. Evie meets Opal and the two do a little match making by introducing Jade to Max.
Jade has a seventies kitchen that she wants to redo. I don't blame her for that since styles back then were horrifying. I can't believe people used those colors willingly. Max is a contractor and fellow geek. You gotta love a guy that dresses up like Mal. I'm sure there are more than a few who wouldn't mind having a Captain Tightpants. I thought it was a really cute story of two people finding each other and falling in love. It is just a fun and enjoyable read that is perfect after reading something that's dark or very heavy. Sometimes you just want something fun and fluffy. I do like it when a book causes me to laugh and this book certainly did that. I really liked Jade, Max, and Evie.
