I worship Faye’s body every night. I touch and taste, explore and learn, pleasure and adore. Unreservedly. And she gives herself to me with a trust and generosity that humbles me and that I will never betray while there’s breath in my body.

”A FAIRBANKS AFFAIR” is yet another book to add to a long list of ones that I LOVE by the amazing Katy Regnery. Faye and Trevor’s story was sweet, incredibly steamy, and maybe there was the element of

Life gives us all sorts of experiences...some joyful, some easy and then there are the ones which are so impactful, they color everything after them. It can be the loss of our parents and how it makes you take on the responsibilities of raising a younger sister. Or it can be a devastating betrayal from a sibling.

The Fairbanks Affair has all the fun and sexy times for an engaging romance but it also touches on so much more. It presents

A Fairbanks Affair (Odds-Are-Good #3) by Katy Regnery

With humorous dialogue, heartwarming moments and predictably, irresistible characters, the odds are readers will LOVE, A Fairbanks Affair. Regnery always delivers the goods when it comes to deliciously, tempting storytelling. Faye and Trevor are love at it's best at the worst possible time. She needs a favor. He needs a reason to hope. Two strangers that fell upon something more are waiting to steal away with your heart. And believe me, THEY

Trevor, the hero, is trying to heal after the ultimate heart shattering betrayal. When it comes to dating again and love, he’s like a polar bear with a thorn still stuck in its paw, folks. He’s not sure he wants the pain to completely heal because he wants a reminder not to let it happen again. Yeah, he’s got a touch or two of knucklehead-itis, as well. You know what I’m talking about. Talking before he thinks kind of thing. Of course, it has been less than a year, so I found myself cutting the ...more

This is the best yet of the series! Each book is a stand alone so feel free to start with this one.

I normally hate the trope of a virgin hoping to lose her virginity because so often she’s a simpering whiner while the man she picks almost forces himself on her because she has no independence. This book does NOT use this trope at all. Faye is a strong, independent woman who just hasn’t had time for relationships since the death of her parents, taking over the family business, and raising a

I think this is by far the most relatable book in the series. I really enjoyed Faye's backstory. Most books with a virginal hero or heroine (especially one in their thirties) always have to have some sort of compelling explanation for why they haven't slept with anyone yet. In Faye's case, it's simply because she's a workaholic who just hasn't gotten around to it.

I also felt for Trevor and his trust issues. It's tough to stop the past from dictating

When I first read the beginning of A Fairbanks Affair, I wasn’t sure what to think. I should have known to trust Ms Regnery to take that unique intro and deliver a great story.

Faye and Trevor are two characters that it takes a bit to warm up to, but once I got to know them they were likeable and easy to root for them to each find a happy ending. Both had some emotional growing to do, but it was handled in a way that felt organic and genuine to the story.

I liked this book and had fun reading it. It just wasn’t satisfying. A lot of the problems seems solved with no actual effort. The brother and ex-fiancé things just made me roll my eyes. I liked it and look forward to the next one, but it was like something was missing.

ARC received for an honest review

I have read all three of the Odds-Are-Good stories, and A Fairbanks Affair has been my favourite - so far.

Now, at first when I saw it was a virgin (albeit an older virgin) just wanting to lose her V-card, I was a bit sceptical, as we have all been there, read that and the virgin is usually a whimpering, simpering "why does he like me" kind of girl, and that is one of my bug bears in books.

I was pleasantly surprised with Faye's story. She is a strong,

A Fairbanks Affair by Katy Regnery is the third book in the Odds- Are – Good Series. This Alaska themed romance series is a pure joy to read. Katy Regnery has a gift of creating engaging, fun, sexy, and emotional romances that today’s contemporary woman can relate to. When I read the synopsis for this book my first thought were a thirty year old virgin woman was a bit far fetched but once the reader meets Faye Findley it all works.

When Faye decides she wants to be rid of her pesky v card, she goes to the furthest reaches of the US to get rid of it after finding a personal ad requesting a discreet tryst in Fairbanks, Alaska on New Year's eve, with no strings, no falling in love. Perfect for her, perfect for the 30-year-old successful business woman who just wants this out of the way. She didn't count on meeting a gorgeous, albeit hurting, man in the bar when she arrives, and having an instant connection with him. Alas,

I just loved both Faye and Trevor right from the start. Faye is smart, successful, self-assured, and confident – at least when it comes to business, but since she’s had to step up and run the family business there’s been no time for love, or relationships, or any type of romantic

Geez! Another adorable love story from Katy. I can’t get enough from this author and A Fairbanks affair came just in time if you want to get into the holiday spirit.
Trevor placed an ad in the odds-are-good looking for an intimate all-inclusive New Year’s weekend with zero chance of love. Faye, who is alone for the holidays decided to answer with her own proposal. The day Faye arrived to Alaska she met a handsome farmer at the restaurant bar (who turned out to be Trevor). “The farmer” made his

Faye Finley is in Fairbanks hoping to purchase a craft vodka distillery. Her life has been so focused on work that she has never found time for relationships. She decides the trip is also the perfect time for some fun like she’s never had time to experience via a personal ad in the Odds Are Good magazine she finds at the dentist’s office. Now though the trip is mostly for business, she has some pleasure planned as well when she meets “Mr. Fairbanks” for New Years.

This is a unique, sweet, and swoony story about two work-a-holics who were absolutely NOT looking for love but could not avoid the connection even as they tried. It is part of the Odds Are Good series, but is a total stand-alone and only related by the location being Alaska.

Trevor Starling is a distillery owner that has been burned by two people he trusted the most and he is still bitter. But he also has physical needs. So he thinks one way to combat the lonely New Year's weekend is to

I adored Faye and Trevor's story so much! It was sweet, so sexy, and a little bit emotional.

"There's something about her that's both sweetly innocent and insanely arousing."

A busy career woman who has little time for a personal life, she decides to throw caution to the wind and travels to Alaska with a view to giving her virginity to an man she's never met before.

I sit her wondering how to categorize this story, is it romance, definitely, is it a let’s lose my virginity later in life, sure, but what it really is about to me - This is story of destiny or fate. This is such a sweet, and sometimes emotional, holiday love story. <3<3<3

Having read several books from Katy Regnery, I couldn’t wait to read this one. This was one of those books that grabbed me from the start and never let me go; what a terrific read A Fairbanks Affair was. I love any story that is centred on Christmas and this story will get you in the mood for the festive season.

A Fairbanks Affair is the third book in the Odds are Good Series by Katy Regnery. I have had the pleasure of reading two of the three and have thoroughly enjoyed both. I love the premise of the couple finding each other via personal adds in the Alaskan-based magazine, Odds are Good.

Trevor Starling and Faye Findley are two people who have much in common. They are both successful business people in the alcoholic beverage industry. Neither wants to be alone during the Holiday Season.

Le sigh. While I've fallen in love with all three couples in the series so far, getting to that point has been different every single time. With Faye and Trevor, it was more a slow burn thing, which is ironic considering there's a part in the book where Trevor wonders if his feelings for Faye are a case of insta-love. I loved getting to know these two and seeing who they were beneath the workaholic business owners that readers
4.5 and the only reason why it's not a full 5 is because I didn't want this to end. And I'm pretty sure this is my favourite of the series, although I love them all. I seriously couldn't get enough of this Alaskan men!

Trevor never thought his beloved brother would do something to ruin his wedding, let alone whisk his fiance away. Because of that, he placed an ad for a companion to spend the New Year's with him. But with the condition of no strings attached.

Here’s the perfect holiday read for you. Trevor and Faye aren’t looking for love but the holidays would be so much better if they could find someone to spend them with.

Trevor’s heart was obliterated recently making love the last thing he ever wants to consider again but a man has needs. If he could just have a no strings attached sex included date for the New Year’s holiday he could be content.

I love how Faye and Trevor meet. It wasn’t the way they had planned. Their chemistry and commonality

A Fairbanks Affair by Katy Regnery is akin to a sweet and sexy Hallmark Movie... it was the perfect escape read for cold winter Saturday.

The story of Faye and Trevor is sweet, sexy and slightly tumultuous. There are beautiful twist and turns within the pages of A Fairbanks Affair. The story left me feeling warm, with a smile on my face.

Ms. Regnery had once again crafted a beautiful story of love, loss and second chances. I felt a connection to Faye almost immediately; the way Ms. Regnery writes
