This was so much fun to read! LUMBERJACK IN LOVE is a great sizzling hot and funny contemporary romance set in a small town in Vermont.

Marcus & Ami


This short story packs quite a bit into it. Ami and Marcus are well developed characters, who at first appear to be as opposite as day and night. She a city gal; he a woodsman "lumberjack" that prefers the country. But quickly we see an attraction burning between them, and their flirting was just so fun to read. When things heated up - and I mean HEATED UP! - I thought Marcus might well be the most perfect man and Ami the luckiest lady alive. (Yum!)

The town folks congregate at a local general store, where we meet several other fun characters. Ami misses the good coffee and wine found in the big city, but she is falling in love with the people here. When a career changing opportunity gives her a chance to stay, she doesn't know what to do. Marcus, on the other hand, wants nothing more than to convince her to stay.

The lumberjack jokes were fast and frequent, and kept me laughing. The chemistry between Ami and Marcus sizzled, and despite them being so opposite it was easy to believe that these two belonged together. There were some great scenes, very original.

In summary, Lumber Jack in Love was a HOT, funny, small town romance with great chemistry and quirky characters. It has an opposites attract theme that I also love. I highly recommend it to anyone wanting a great `feel good' steamy romance read.

Note: the author Penny has been an online friend of mine for years, and I love to chat romance books with her. But she did not ask me to read or review her book, I am simply a big fan of her writing. And this is the best book she's written yet

Thanks Kristen! The cover is a crackup but it makes more sense after reading it. Especially her black boots -- he loved her boots! Lol


Kristen (Peddler of Smut) I can't wait to read this one.


Karla Love your review KarLyn. I borrowed this at Amazon today and will read it within the week. The premise reminds me of Letters to a Secret Lover, which is one of my all-time favorite books. I love when city goes country, I have a feeling I'm going to enjoy this very much!


♡Karlyn P♡ Karla--yes!! 'Letters...' is one of my favorite books too. This is similar, maybe with more humor and a nicer hero, but just as sizzling:-)

I highly recommend that one too, a solid steamy romance classic Wendy.

Lady Lioness Got your rec for this. I may check it out because I like Watson's Santa offspring books.


message 41: by Jae (new) - rated it 4 stars

Jae What with the cover?
My inner randiness demands a more graphic naked male chest. And maybe loose the bandana too.


Kathleen Great review Karlyn, I'm adding it to my BTR list too.

Caz Thanks for the rec. I now have Monty Python's "Lumberjack Song" on the brain!

LOL, that's a stocking cap I think, not a bandana. It's cold in Vermont. :-) I think all romance novels should have a half naked man on it too. I added some photos to my review, hope that helps with the visual. :-)

The covers on most indie books tend to be a bit corny, huh? Budget I guess. Trust me, Marcus (the 'lumberjack') looks more like the photo in my review than the guy on the cover.

Judi I read the sample and liked it. Is that Scott Speedman in your post? Yum. I'll be adding this to the TBR.


♡Karlyn P♡ Judi wrote: "I read the sample and liked it. Is that Scott Speedman in your post? Yum. I'll be adding this to the TBR."

Hmmm, I have no idea who he is, just a hottie who looks like my version of 'Marcus'. I'll have to look up Scott Speedman. After I posted the 'Ami' photo I realized that is Tiger Woods ex-wife. (She looks so different in that photo than the tabloid shots I am used to seeing)

Judi That's Tiger's ex? Wouldn't have known that. What was he thinking.


♡Karlyn P♡ With his 'Wood', apparently :-)

Anna (Bobs Her Hair) Sounds very good! Perfect sampler size, too! :)

Hope you enjoy it Anna! It's 10 chapters, a good size read but still a long novella.


Kathleen LMAO Karlyn, you have everyone reading this book and guess what? I'm reading it next :-)
