New Release+Review: Hard Wood by Lauren Blakely

From #1 NYT Bestselling author Lauren Blakely comes a hot & hilarious new standalone romantic comedy...

Women often say a good man is hard to find. And a hard man is even better.
That's why I'm quite a catch-- good, hard, loaded, and wait for it...I'm ready to settle down too. But the woman I want to pitch my tent with lives clear across the country. Neither of us wants to get lost in those woods. All I have to do is resist her for the week she's in town.
I try. I swear I try. But yeah, that doesn't work out. 
And after one fantastic night with my good friend Mia, I'm ready to give her years of nights under the stars. What's a few thousand miles when love's involved? But there's a hitch in my plans -- she just hired my adventure tour company. If there's one thing I'm committed to, it's running a squeaky clean business. Number one on my list of iron-clad rules?
Don't screw your customers.
But what's a guy to do when she's so hard to resist? How hard can it be to keep our hands off each other for a quick group tour down the hills and over the trails? I'm about to find out, and I have a feeling I'm going to need a new badge of honor because things are about to get very hard in the woods.

“I don’t care about the miles. I don’t care that we live on different coasts. All I care about is how I feel, not only when I’m near you, but when I think of you. Don’t you see how you make me feel?”

Lauren Blakely is the Queen on male point of views! Just have to put that out there! No one is touching her in this department. I’ve been looking forward to Patrick and Mia’s story since “Stud Finder” and it didn’t disappoint me at all.What I loved about Patrick was that he knew what he wanted and he didn’t beat around the bush. He didn’t play any games and was very straightforward and assertive when it came to Mia. It’s very refreshing when a man knows what he wants and will stop at nothing to get his woman. Mia was a woman after my own heart as we both love animals and I currently have a cat that I rescued named Paws. Speaking of cats in this book we have Zeus who was such a great addition to this story as well.

“What I really want to say is I look forward to showering you with affection every single day. And then you’ll tell me how much you can’t wait for that, too.”

Anybody who has  read Lauren Blakely before will not be disappointed in this story. Even if you are new to her books you will still enjoy this story. The writing was flawless, the story flowed and it hit all the marks. As I said before I love her books because there is never over the top, eye rolling drama. Any issues the couples face their challenges head on and resolves them as needed. Nothing is dragged out and it’s refreshing. Lauren Blakely nailed it again and as always has left me with a huge smile on my face after being hard wood!
