Gifted and talented in many ways, Sara Loomis, 26, accepts her one glaring inadequacy: her sexual repression. Sara is frigid.

Kidnapped during the robbery of a convenience store in the Ozark Mountains on Halloween, Sara is terrified that the hillbillies will carry out their threat to rape and murder her. Instead, they deliver her to Bo, a hairy, reclusive, mute, o

So I really didn't expect that this was going to be a five-star for me, but I loved this book! I loved the story and the characters.

There were a few things about it that irked me, and under normal circumstances I probably would have given this book four stars, but because I loved the story so much I had to give it five.
There were some typos and formatting errors, but overall not nearly enough to affect my enjoyment.

Bodacious by Sharon Ervin is a title that I come across a lot during my various book trolling sessions on Amazon romance discussion forum. All reviewers have commented upon the fact that this story is unlike most romances and has the ability to draw the reader in from the first page itself. And I do have to agree with other reviewers on these aspects, yes, the story has a unique way about it and it does draw the reader in from the first chapter itself.

Sara Loomis is kidnapped by hillbillies during a botched gas station robbery. When the matriarch of the inbred family finds out what they’ve done, she commands that Sara be “taken care of.” But stuttering Cappy can’t bring himself to do the deed, so he leaves Sara at the mercy of “Bo,” a mute, grizzled mountain man living in a one-room cabin on the fringes of society. Though Bo refuses to return Sara to civilization, he shelters, clothes, and feeds her–all without ever uttering a word. What foll ...more

started this and nope. think it's because the book I read before this had a writing style that was like artwork. Reading this after that was like eating a street hot dog after months of eating the best steaks. DNF
Some hillbilly thieves rob a convenient store and kidnap Sara. Instead of murdering her themselves, they decide to hand her over to the mountain man, Bo, certain he will do the deed for them.

Almost a 5 star. I really enjoyed it. It kept my attention wanting to know what happens next. I had a minor issue with the quick ending but would still recommend to anyone who wants a slightly different type love story.
Decent story but a bit fractured. Liked the hero. The heroine had the most TSTL moment of any I've ever read in 40 years of reading. The ending was just plain goofy. The author just sort of headed off in a 180 degree direction that sort of negated the entire first 2/3rds of the story. Some well done sex scenes. Not erotica.
"Konusu ilgimi çekti. Farklı şeyler denenmiş. Adamın dilsiz olması hele, nasıl iletişim kuracaklar acaba?"

Öyle bir kurdular ki iletişim. :D

Uzun zaman önce karşılaştığım bir kitaptı Bodacious. Karşılaşma sebebimse o zamanlar okuduğum bir kitaptan etkilenip aradığım "dağ adamı" erkek tipine sahip kitapları okumak istememdi. Aradan baya zaman geçti ve bu kitaba tekrar dönüşüm bu sefer farklı bir şeyi "Stockholm Sendromu" vakalarını o

Didn't know whether to give this a 3 or 4. Bumped it up because it kept my interest. I loved Bo but never really like Sara much. She thinks she is way smarter than she is and keeps on proving it. It is not the smartness that bothered me but the way she proved it by action and thoughts. Her stupid actions, I just had to get over to enjoy the book, but her thoughts... they show her misjudgement loud and clear. Bo is obviously highly intelligent, his books alone should have hit her in the head with ...more
This was a fun read. It's not perfect and has a few scenes that I would have liked to see deleted with one in particular. (view spoiler) .

The chemistry between Bo and Sara is very well done. There is a baking scene that is especially effective in building up the tension between the two. I also real
