Peek Inside Cracklin' Rosie

Decker’s patience is tested the moment he meets sharp-tongued Rosie. She’s got hips that sway, non-stop curves, and a mouth that needs to be filled with something sweeter than vinegar.

Rosie loves food. She loves serving it in her small town diner and writing about it in her blog. Her life is full, happy, and uncomplicated, until a large tree limb crashes through her house roof during a storm, and sexy roofer Decker and his tool belt become a tempting complication. Rosie’s not used to being vulnerable, so the idea of Decker behind her with a strip of leather in his hand shouldn’t be turning her on as much as it is.

Decker’s not put off by the prickly woman whose roof he’s fixing. In fact, the more prickly she gets, the more he wants her and turns on the charm. After a few hotter-than-hot kisses, Decker is more than willing to give her every red stripe she’s begging for. Now and forever.

Each book in the Blue Jeans and Hard Hats series is a standalone story that can be enjoyed in any order.
Series order:
Book #1: Sweet Caroline

"If you're a fan of Lissa Matthews', steamy, erotic reads this should be another book to add to your tbr list." --Riverina Romantics, Goodreads

"I really enjoy Lissa Matthews writing style, the mixture of hard and soft and sentiment and humour, all tied up with interesting characters and a kinky cherry on top! Great fun." --Juju221, Goodreads

"Ms. Lissa did it again with another story that rocked my world. Staying true to the kinky side of life is always sexy, but the way Ms. Lissa gives us the story that always makes me itch for the things that seem to run amuck in a hussy's mind! Smutty, sexy and hot as hell, this is one hot story!!" --Cecile, Goodreads

If you're a fan of Lissa Matthews', steamy, erotic reads this should be another book to add to your tbr list.

I was actually surprised the sex in this didn't start straight away. At 23% there still wasn't any inserting of tab A into slot B. Very surprising to me, but it definitely didn't take away fr ...more

All I have to say is YUM! Well ok I actually have a lot more to say than that... *wink* I was lucky enough to be given a copy of the book by Lissa Matthews, as you know I have enjoyed a number of her books (mmmm Vinter) one of which was Sweet Caroline; the first in her Blue Jeans and Hard Hats serie ...more

And I was also given this book from the author to review for my honest thoughts! So here we go...

For those of you that know me... and those that don't this is my little statement about short books.... I do not judge short stories on the rush of their relationships, because they are just that - short ...more

Full review at Ana's Attic erotic books and novelties
This really rates a 3.75 and a 4 for Heat. This is a short book, and the second in the series after Sweet Caroline. First of all, I hate the name. I know it is a song (but I didn't till I read the book), but it turned me off to the book when I hav ...more

I must confess the first thing that attracted me to this series was the smokin' hot covers! Little did I realize, but I should have having read Lissa Matthews Masked series, that the story on the inside would be just as smokin' hot!

I enjoyed Cracklin' Rosie more than Sweet Caroline because of the sl ...more

Rosie likes her quiet country life. She owns a diner that makes her very happy. The only thing missing is a hot guy to fulfill her sexual needs. Rosie has a dark secret and she’s afraid that if anyone in town finds out they will ostracize her. When Decker arrives in Blue Ridge to fix Rosie’s roof sh ...more

By Netanella May 06, 2012

3 1/2 stars rounded up to 4 because Decker is a sweetheart of a Dom. When he wants to be, that is.

Lots of belt action. Lots of talking - things got a little slow in the middle, but the action picked up nicely at the end.

Anyone sleep at the Red Roof Inn before?
