About the book:

Running about 7 bananas strong on shots from Hale and Oscar Maree’s wedding bar, what happened between Landon Grace and Sher Traifere was supposed to be a one time thing. A quickie on a romantic night. Sher wanted a fast evening of fireworks to remember on the dull horizon of her life; Landon wanted to get his mind off his psycho ex by feeling Sher’s curves. By the end of the evening, a secret of Sher’s complicates Landon’s attempt to escape the girl’s chainsaw giggle.

 

Some one-night-stands just can’t be finished in one night.

 

Even more complicating, this one rises back up with a hard shot of morning sickness and an entire repertoire of questions. The most important being: how much pull does a guy really have in a woman’s choice to pursue or terminate a pregnancy?

 

And in this case, how clever can he be about stealing her pants?

How good can a female author be at writing a male voice in a book?  In this case, enough to sweep me up for a day and fall completely in love with a total guy’s guy named Landon!

We first meet Landon in Hale and Oscar’s story, Hale MareeFull of Grace immediately picks up where Hale Maree ended (yay!).  Landon is nursing a bruised ego but thoroughly enjoying himself at Hale and Oscar’s wedding.  He’s paired up in the wedding party with Sher, Hale’s best friend in the entire world.  We all know I’m not a recap-er so I’ll just stop here and say that we all know what happens at a wedding – everybody is looking at everyone else with stars in their eyes and liquor on their brains.

Characters

Ms. Provencher over and over again demonstrates her writing flexibility from one book to the next and this book is no different!  She does an amazing job capturing Landon and a total guy’s point of view.  Better yet, a 24 year old guy’s point of view!  I had so much fun reading Landon!  He made me giggle, cringe, and swoon from one page to the next.  And the best part was that Ms. Provencher didn’t focus on any “Cinderella” aspect to the story!  I noticed that not once was there mention of what kind of car Landon drove, where he worked or what he did for a living, what kind of clothes he wore – he was just Landon, the character.

And then there was Sher, just the frightened 18 year old girl who’s trying desperately to live her life the way she wants.  In the case of the subject of this story, I’m actually quite glad we’re not in her head listening to her thoughts.  We get to see her thought processes acted out in actions, not words.  I really didn’t think that much of Sher in Hale Maree but by the end of this book, I really liked her.

For you Oscar and Hale fans, there’s plenty of them in this story making small cameos.  But who really steals the show is Landon’s sister, Gina.  I would love to have her for my best friend any day!!!!!

Story

Yes, Ms. Provencher is at it again with provocative story lines.  I won’t go into too much detail about the story but there’s more going on than just Landon’s rights to the baby.  And the absolutely best part is, this book won’t weigh you down with heavy, deep, sorrowful, sad feelings after you read it.  It’s actually a pretty fun, hysterical at times story that flies by and is over way too quickly!!!  I seriously read this in one evening.  I’ve never done that before.

‘Nuff said.

      I would love a big goof-ball like Landon in my life!!! He’s the perfect age, too! Just filling in his big-man responsibility pants but keeping it real with the messy apt (I loved when Sher asked him if he ever hit the toilet! 😛 )

      Man, you can totally hi-jack my blog ANYTIME! xoxox
