If it ain’t broke, why’s she so intent on fixing it?
Tessa Booker hates romance.
For 25 years, Tessa Booker has insisted that romance is something Hollywood cooked up to sell books and movies. Yes, she knows the word existed before movies. She doesn’t care. That’s her story, and she’s sticking to it.
So, when Ross gets a gentle nudge from Mallory Barrows to look into what Tessa’s doing every day while he’s at work, he discovers a romance in the works – one that sounds a little too “ripped from the pages of his life”!
Who is this woman, and what has she done with his wife?
Armed with advice from 101 Ways to Romance Your Wife and a copy of the manuscript he printed while she was napping, he’s determined to figure out what’s up with his wife…and if maybe a little romance wouldn’t be a good thing, after all.
In a twist of the “on the rocks trope”, this book introduces the next island in the Independence Islands series featuring five islands, six authors, and a boatload of happily ever afters.
The Independence Islands Series – Beach listens aren’t just for summer, anymore!
My thoughts: I enjoyed reading this book tremendously, so it was fun to go back and listen to it in audio book! Christa does an excellent job of drawing the characters out and bringing their personalities out. This is a wonderful audio book (or book, if you prefer to read it yourself!) to pick up! My review of the book itself can be found here.
I received this audiobook from Celebrate Lit. This is my honest review.
