I absolutely love books that make me laugh, and I giggled through this whole book! The sexual innuendos in this book are off-the-charts. This is the perfect summer read. Sometimes, I just want something light and fun. Fenske’s writing is so refreshing.

What a sweet romance! This was my first by Tawna Fenske, but it won't be my last!

Miriam and Jason were great together! Add in the hilariousness that Jason's nephew Henry added and you will be smiling from ear to ear. Jason wasn't all polish and diamonds. He's a real guy who likes manly outdoor stuff ...more

Favorite Quotes:

I'm not sure how to feel about a woman who stares at my junk for that long and says 'I'm sorry.'

Because nothing says romance like peeing on a stick.

Miriam scurried after him, moving at a speedier clip than she was accustomed to. She didn't usually move this fast unless t ...more

By Heather June 24, 2016

After cutting through some of the silly innuendo and sophomoric genital names, this is a cute and sexy story that is sweet and steamy. Fenske has created characters that are relatable and that the reader can care about and five-year-old Henry steals every scene he's in. The side characters are well- ...more

Tawna Fenske has a knack for creating characters that could be over the top with too many quirky traits or dialogue that seems to lean to humor rather than purpose, but just before I’d start to roll my eyes, she hits us with a moment that explains it all, and brings the characters into a new light. ...more
