Review: Love & Rockets by Maggie Wells

Smart is the new sexy…

They say if you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen, but it’s not the sauce at The Pit BBQ that has Darla Kennet breaking a sweat. The sassy single mom has waited tables in Mobile for years to support herself and her daughter, Grace, and she’s never let anything get her rattled…until now.  Somehow, handsome aerospace engineer Jake Dalton has gotten under her skin.

Although they went to school together, Jake doesn’t remember much about Darla. Back then the brainiac future rocket scientist always had his head in a book. But now that a chance meeting has him helping Grace apply to space camp, he’s been pulled into Darla’s orbit. And it isn’t long before Jake and Darla have a heated meeting of their own celestial bodies. The trouble is, Jake wants more. Convincing cautious, fiercely independent Darla to trust him with her heart just may be his most challenging mission yet…

Terri's Thoughts

I received an advanced copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley.  Thank you! In return I offer my honest opinion.  This book will be published on November 22nd.

This story is part of the Coastal Heat series however can be read as a stand alone.  I have read all of the stories that came before this one however I do not feel it is a requirement.  The characters in the other books are mentioned and are present, but you would not feel like you are missing something.

So this is a short book so there is not a lot that I can say that isn't covered by the synopsis.  This story is written for those who like their stories hot and their characters hotter.  Those who appreciate a good steamy scene or three, look no further.  For those who avoid them you may want to look elsewhere.

In all honesty you pretty much know what you are going to get when you pick up this story and that is exactly what is delivered.  It really doesn't venture far from the standard formula.  I did like the fact that Jake was geeky hot, and not what can be found typically in this sort of story.  He was smart and a little bit uncoordinated but don't worry ladies, when he undressed he was still the drool worthy fantasy that you are looking for.

This story allowed me to sweat through my workout without realizing I was working out so it was a good distraction.
