    Wicked fun!

    The queen of double entendre is back with a clever, scandalous and hard to resist anti hero. Hard Wood is another Lauren Blakely original. Relevant and at times deep subjects are tackled with humorous dialogue, risque innuedoes and sassy characters. Patrick and Mia are dynamite. Heat, humor and heart are on display with some wicked fun for good measure.

    Super cute and fun!

    I read this entire book within 7 hours...I was super sucked in. Hard Wood was super cute, fun, and light. It was a really sweet and feel good romance. I loved the lightness to it. Patrick is adorable to me and I dislikes cats, but Zeus was a lot of fun. I love the perfect fit that Mia and Patrick are to one another. They both know what they want, but have trouble navigating what the other wants. I enjoyed the overall story and really like these two together. We got to see a bit of the whole gang through out and it was bittersweet. I love this world and group of characters, and I am sad their stories are coming to a close. Definitely love all these men and being in their heads.

    Witty, sexy and completely engaging!

    **Advanced copy provided by the author in exchange for an honest review** This story is one was have been waiting on for some time after meeting both Mia and Patrick in earlier books and what I can say is Lauren Blakely did not disappoint! Mia is the sister of Max and Chase and Patrick is Evie's brother and also one of Max's best friends. When Mia and Patrick met for the first time it was clear there was a connection and while neither one of them was ready to act on it at that time, time has passed and things have changed. Mia is smart, sassy, beautiful and the owner of her own beauty company. She has been spending time in New York since both of her brothers are there now, but currently she's in town for Chase's wedding. She has always had feelings for Patrick, but events in previous relationships have her cooling her jets just a bit. Patrick is funny, strong, outdoorsy, owns his own adventure tour company and is a cat lover. Oh and did I forget the fact that he's hotter than hot?! Yeah, he totally is. He's ready to settle down and he has definitely had his sights set on Mia for some time, but the fact she lives nearly 3000 miles away and she's his friend's sister have had him putting the breaks on. Well, he did until an almost kiss happened in an elevator... After the close encounter in the elevator between Patrick and Mia, they can't deny their attraction anymore. The chemistry they have is inferno level and there is no doubt that their feelings are extremely strong, but the question is, can they be together and handle a long distance relationship? Or is there another solution? I loved how this relationship unfolded and how certain small things became such driving forces in their relationship. It was very them and it was totally endearing. This book is exactly what I've come to expect from Lauren Blakely - witty, sexy and completely engaging! Loved it!

    Delightful!

    The game of falling in love has no rules. You make them up as you go along. Patrick is now at a point in his early thirties, where he is ready to settle down and fall for the one. He has made his fortune doing what he loves best. With his trusted cat, Zeus, they are a package deal hard to pass up. Without realizing it, Mia has gotten under his skin. She is his best friend's sister...but not totally forbidden territory. But what is a man to do about the fact that she lives in San Francisco and he lives in New York? Can long-distance relationships be worth the trouble? These two characters are just thoroughly adorable! They are doing the "he/she loves me, he/she loves me not" dance. You know, the one where you do not know how much to reveal about how deep you have fallen because you are not sure if the other person has also fallen for you? They are great together! They can talk for hours and never feel weird. They like the same things. And they both feel safe when they are around each other. Of course, the lustful chemistry is also there, and they are both very much aware of that. They both have a confidant. Zeus the cat is the perfect friend. He will listen to their troubles and never breathe a word. This is why the cat always knows first! Anyone out there loves cats? If you do, you will immediately relate to the soothing purr and excellent listening skills of this intelligent companion. Being privy to his thoughts adds an interesting dimension to the story. This is a light-hearted, delightful romp through the outdoors. Love under the stars can be a beautiful thing. Patrick is that dream lover we all hope to meet! I am voluntarily reviewing this book. I thank the author for sharing a copy with me.

    So romantic!

    I'm going out on a limb here and saying that Patrick is the most romantic Blakely boy to date. I know some won't agree, because lord knows Clay Nichols is all kinds of romantic and swoony, but Patrick, man, there is just something about him that hit me in all the right places. If you ask me what that something is, I honestly couldn't break it down to anything specific; it's everything about him. It's the complete joy he gets from his job. It's the fact that he has a freaking adventure cat with its own Instagram account. It's how totally and utterly he is into Mia, and has been from the moment he met her. I want to be Mia and have all that love and affection directed at me. I'm not going to lie, I got more emotional with this book than I have with any of the other ones in this series of standalones. And it's not because this is the last of the bunch, although that makes me teary-eyed, too. I really felt the emotion between Mia and Patrick. And as much as I have adored all the other books and couples, (and believe me I have!), this one was just a little more special to me.
