arc review

official blurb
Nothing about being a librarian prepared Thuy Nguyen for such a wide variety of casseroles. Or life in a small town. Or becoming a farmer. But what can she do when her catastrophe-prone best friend begs her for help? After all, Maddy has always been there for Thuy. It’s time to return the favor. It’s simple really, all she has to do is: learn everything about farming ASAP, save her BFF’s family business from disaster, and avoid being caught staring at Maddy’s biker brother, and his muscles, and his smile, and his soulful, sexy eyes. Oh yeah, and she should definitely not fall in love with him. Easy, right? . . . Right.

1 out of 5(I didn’t get far enough into the book to give it an accurate steam rating)

Drill was not striking my fancy physically or personality wise. I’m not into the iron wraiths (reminder that this is the motorcycle club in this Peenyverse)! I just don’t like the whole motorcycle club (MC) thing in general- and unfortunately one of our main characters is an integral part of the MC.

Thuy brought the diversity in the book- she’s from NorCal (heyoh, I see you my old stomping grounds!).  She has a complicated past (though I never got far enough to discover what it was), and she is Asian.  From what I read from her (other than her attraction to Drill…which I did not get at all) I liked her.

The main reason I decided to DNF (did not finish) this book was that I simply couldn’t connect with it. By the time I finished chapter ten, I had made notes that there were too many redundant sentiments or sentences that I couldn’t move past. Also it was clear where the Drill MC storyline was going.  (With the MC using him for money and him not wanting to go through with their plan but feeling obligated- and I couldn’t sit through that). You know how I feel about my protagonists needing a LOT of gumption! A lot of gumption.

So alas, I was not the right reader for this book unfortunately. But if you enjoy motorcycle clubs and the Pennyverse (smartypants romances) then this one could still be for you!
