Hey there! I swear I haven’t abandoned my blog, even though it’s been quiet here. But there were some changes at work and long story short my workload basically doubled because there’s a new lawyer I now work for and I’m still getting used to how she wants to have things done.
And when I come home I have to adult for a bit (laundry, cleaning, cooking etc.) before I then fall into bed and just want to sleep. There are a few reviews I still want to write, but it’ll probably have to wait until the weekend, because I have no time before then.
Okay, now back to topic:
I’m currently (re-)reading In the Middle of Somewhere by Roan Parrish.
I saw in one of the ARC-reviews that Out of Nowhere takes place at the same time as In the Middle of Somewhere so it seemed to be the perfect reason to do a reread. And I love it even more than the first time. (If you haven’t read this book, I highly recommend it.) The story is great. I love the characters, the writing is absolutely fantastic and the food in this book! *moans* Just reading about it makes me hungry!
Daniel Mulligan is tough, snarky, and tattooed, hiding his self-consciousness behind sarcasm. Daniel has never fit in—not at home in Philadelphia with his auto mechanic father and brothers, and not at school where his Ivy League classmates looked down on him. Now, Daniel’s relieved to have a job at a small college in Holiday, Northern Michigan, but he’s a city boy through and through, and it’s clear that this small town is one more place he won’t fit in.
Rex Vale clings to routine to keep loneliness at bay: honing his muscular body, perfecting his recipes, and making custom furniture. Rex has lived in Holiday for years, but his shyness and imposing size have kept him from connecting with people.
When the two men meet, their chemistry is explosive, but Rex fears Daniel will be another in a long line of people to leave him, and Daniel has learned that letting anyone in can be a fatal weakness. Just as they begin to break down the walls keeping them apart, Daniel is called home to Philadelphia, where he discovers a secret that changes the way he understands everything.
Also: isn’t that cover gorgeous? 😉
