I am really happy I picked this book up. Not only did it make me laugh out loud but it made me swoon. I love it when a story can balance humor with romance and this one did it really well. There were plenty of touching moments as well to really tell a satisfying story. I didn't want to put this book down and ended up reading it in a single day.
Sam and Leah are probably one of my many favorite literature couples. Sam is in construction and has sworn off any relationships for the time being after his most recent disaster. Leah owns a local bakery and isn't sure she will ever meet the right guy. This pair fit so nicely together and Sam really seemed to become a part of Leah's family almost immediately. The chemistry between the pair was well done and I was really wanting to see them make it work. Everything about their relationship felt genuine to me.
The only negative I found about this book was the constant downer Leah was about her own weight and then the constant back and forth Sam was having with himself over actually liking Leah. Yes, both are what make the story but both just seemed to go on and on after a while so perhaps just a bit toning back of the negativity would have brought my rating up a bit more.
I would recommend this book to fans of contemporary romance. This is the first book by Alison Bliss that I have had a chance to read but I do plan to read more of her work in the future. I am really looking forward to the next book in this series.
