    Funny, sexy and sassy

    For me, the sign of a good read is when I abandon my weekend chores and skip the trip to the store in order to finish a book. So, my house is messy and we are still out of milk. Going for Broke is fast-paced and funny, just the way I like my romantic comedies. Billie Garcia comes off as a real woman, flawed and funny as hell. Think Chelsea Handler. Her guy, Ian Cooper, although completely contemporary and as hot as he is handsome, still somehow feels like throwback to earlier times when men were loyal and gallant. When I’m not reading, I’m watching house reno shows on TV. So, with this book, I got my fix for that too, with lots of vicarious pleasure derived from picturing the high-end appliances roll in to Billie’s inherited fixer-upper. This book is sexy, yet impossibly romantic, a mix that isn’t always achieved in a romantic comedy. Billie and Ian are long-time friends that shouldn’t hook-up, but do, many times. Going for Broke has a nice, full background story peppered with friends, colleagues, and neighbours. I felt like I’d stepped into Billie’s world, got tossed around in her turbulent life and came out the other side satisfied with the traditional happy ever after ending. Kudos to Gretchen Galway for pulling this off!

    Fabulous Fun Read!

    No one, and I mean no one, does the “friends to lovers” story better than Gretchen Galway! Sure, her stories are filled with witty dialogue, quirky characters to love and the beautiful sights of the San Fran Bay area. But when she has her hero and heroine “friends” suddenly look at each other in a different way, writing magic happens! Sweet, kind Belinda “Billie” Garcia is grieving the death of her beloved grandmother when she learns that she and her sister Jane inherited her home. Jane has some funds to contribute towards repairs and updating, but government employee Billie is lacking the funds to fully repair the home since her parasitic ex-boyfriend sucked her savings dry. But Billie comes up with a plan: she may not have the funds, but she can move into gran’s house and start to clean it out the mess the hoarding octogenarian left behind. Bille then takes it a step further and brings in a “secret weapon,” childhood friend Ian Cooper, investment genius and skilled handyman. Ian dated Jane in high school, but after what seemed to be a bitter breakup (no one knew the story there) Billie and Ian kept their friendship light. But now thrown together rehabbing gran’s home, the friends start to realize in their hearts that the feelings they have for one another are anything but platonic! This is another wonderful contemporary romance from an author you should have on your TBR list. Ms. Galway has a wonderful way with a plot line, keeping you invested in her stories. Although there is rarely a suspense plot going on, somehow you still wind up on the edge of your seat to read what happens next. And did I mention her quirky characters? Trixie and Hugo make an appearance - loved seeing them! - and Zeus needs to make an appearance in every book. I highly recommend this book, and all the others, by this author! I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    Five star entertainment

    This book has everything in terms of a hero. I thought he was going to be just a touch arrogant and high handed but I should have realised Gretchen Gallway would haave her heroine sort this out for herself. I would maybe liked a bit longer in the house doing jobs but i always want more. Love the toolbelt scene and Trixie cameo. Read this almost at one sitting with pulse racing and sometimes brreath held!
