Review: A BUCKHORN BACHELOR by Lori Foster

Release Date: June 1st, 2016

Type: Novella, Series, Contemporary Romance, This Chick Is A Librarian Like Me!

About the Book: Adam Sommerville always thought he had it all—great family in a close-knit community, worthwhile job as a high school gym teacher, and no shortage of women eager to be on his arm. But it seems his luck has suddenly run out. Because Buckhorn’s most renowned bachelor has decided it’s time to settle down—and the one woman he wants just put him firmly in the friend zone.

Hiding her true feelings from Adam has been a full-time job for the past five years, but librarian Isabella Presley is determined not to be the latest heart he breaks. The best way to get over her attraction is to find someone else to date—even if it means asking Adam for flirting tips to help her land the perfect guy. But when Adam sets out to convince her the perfect guy is him, will she face her fears for a chance at forever? [Description from]

My Review: I've said it before and I will say it again - Lori Foster is one of my all-time favorite go-tos for a seriously good contemporary romance. If you saw my review of Don't Tempt Me last week, you'll know I think she's the master of the full length romance. But A Buckhorn Bachelor just proves that she also rocks the novella. This is actually my first Buckhorn book, even though I know this is one of her more popular series. And man, I didn't realize how much I was missing until now!

This book is just further proof that Lori Foster can write down-to-earth, genuine characters. I truly believe I could meet someone just like Isabella and Adam. And frankly, I would 100% love to meet someone like Adam. With all the billionaires and rock star romances out there, there's something so comfy and relaxing about a gym teacher and a librarian. Despite the short length of this book (I estimate it to be around 90 pages or so), you can see the characters grow, not only on their own, but as a couple. Really, the only thing keeping this from being a five star perfect read is the cousin. I know she meant well, but I've never wanted to whack a character on the nose with a rolled up newspaper more than in this book.

Cover Lovin': Yummy!

Recommendation: While I own a couple Buckhorn books, this is actually the first I've ever read! So take it from me, this works just fine as a stand alone.

Final Rating: FOUR out of FIVE stars (4/5)! I didn't want to put it down.

Happy Reading!
