    Fantastic

    I LOVED this book! It was one of those books that I had no expectations when I started but before long the awesome characters and the intriguing storyline had me fully invested and unable to put it down. Tanner is known as the town bad boy. He's one of the sons of the town drunk and after a car accident he was sent to prison after being convicted of causing the death of his friend. Emily Towsen is a school teacher and a good girl but she's always had a soft spot for Tanner and never believed he was responsible for the accident. Their worlds collide when Emily's meddling grandmother goes to Tanner's shop and buys a Harley. When Emily confronts Tanner about the motorcycle, things get real crazy real fast. After that nothing in their lives will ever be the same. I highly recommend this one!

    Fantastic start to a new series!!

    Saddler Cove Series Well, it happened again! I found another new to me author to stalk! Handle with Care is the first book in a hopefully new series.  This book is a fantastic introduction to the people of Saddler Cove. Small town drama and small town living. This story is more than just the love story of Tanner and Emily.  It's so much more! I loved the multiple POV's and the secondary romance that was going on! Emily is a fantastic character! I loved her honesty.  I enjoyed the fact that she was forthright about her feelings and she didn't stew long about issues that were plaguing her! Tanner is the ultimate alpha.  He has dealt with bad luck and judgemental people in his past.  It explains why he is the way his is today. The chemistry between Tanner and Emily was amazing! I loved the whole dichotomy between the characters! It was a great telling of the "good girl" "bad boy" scenario. The secondary characters were fantastic and I am so hoping to read more about them in the future!  This is a definite must read! I am so glad to have had the opportunity to read this! Thank you for your words Ms. Croft! I cannot wait to see what you come out with next!

    You an't judge a book...

    Handle With Care starts out smoking hot. Tanner is the stuff that women’s dreams are made of and Emily Towson is no exception to that rule. Gorgeous, guarded, seriously hot with his good looks, moody persona and bad boy reputation. Is it any wonder that he turns heads. Tanner’s family had for many years been given a hard time by the town and then Tanner went to prison for killing his best friend in a car accident. His best friends father just happens to be town royalty and many shun the O’Connor family (Though many of the women cannot help but have their heads turner by the O’Connor’s.) After his incarceration came to an end Tanner and his brothers start a business selling expensive motorcycles and repairing them. Mimi, Emily’s fascinating, minx of a grandmother, had gone to the O’Connor’s motorcycle showroom and repair store and purchased a Harley. When she tells Emily she does not take it well. Emily marched straight to the shop to have it out with Tanner and insist that he rips up her grandmothers cheque and that he refuses to sell her the hog. Tanner has already destroyed the cheque, knowing that it is definitely not suitable for an inexperienced rider, who is approaching her 70th birthday. However when Emily gives him a hard time he winds her up. Cue intense encounter with a condom that was past it’s best, and before you can say birth control, Emily is pregnant. This is a hard story to tell more than the synopsis offers without dropping hints that could allude to spoilers, so I will leave details at the synopsis. So let’s examine the writing and what I liked. I really enjoyed the pace. The intensity was fabulous. Despite a couple of parts being foreseeable they were still enjoyable. I like that despite Tanner having such an awful reputation he isn’t an awful person. I really liked the passion that was evident even in the non passionate scenes. The attraction jumped off of the page and hit you full force. The words used during intimacy didn’t make me cringe. Nina Croft’s writing style immerses you into the story and you don’t want to take your eyes off of the page. The words, chapters, paragraphs flowed beautifully and made the story line feel natural. I think that what I liked the most was the wealth of interesting characters and the depth to their stories. The secrets and lies that have been woven for years and the impacts that it had upon those involved. There are moving moments that give you pause for thought and other moments that are totally frustrating. All in all I thoroughly enjoyed Handle With Care and look forward to reading more of Nina’s work. Thank you to Nina Croft and Social Butterfly PR and NetGalley for granting me an ARC copy of Handle With Care. This is my honest review.

    bad boy & school teacher

    3.75stars What happens when a schoolteacher who always does the right thing loses her mind and decides to step out from the comfort zone and have her ways with towns bad boy Tanner. Suprise that will come in 9 months so Tanner and Emily who both had a huge crush in high school decided to better know each other and see if they can have a normal relationship. The only thing that stays in their way is their town and some of the people who live there. It is really an emotional story and hard for both Emily and Tanner, especially him because the town doesn't like him since he was a kid. And is continue to dislike him despite everything and now is Emily suffering too. I really can't believe that some people are so short minded especially in this century. Emily was an ok character, she really needed Tanner to start living again and not be afraid of life. Tanner was ok too I was just disappointed that first, he didn't want to go with her to a meeting, but he made up and I forgive him. It would be nice to see the story of the other two brothers. I volunteered to review an ARC of this book for Netgelly.

    Safe and Sensible?!?!

    Safe. Sensible what a way to be described. It was true though, that's all she showed to anyone except him. He was angry, defiant, scared and the town bad boy. The problem is that's not who he is and why he came back. I have to say this was a well written story and yeah their story is a good one. I love that these two found what they needed and it really is a feel good story where you want them to succeed. This actually feels like a story within a story. The secondary story of Mimi and Josh is the thing that keep this story from dragging and being too long with the fight to be good enough between Tanner and Emily. The combination of the two couples makes this a wonderful emotional story of recovery and love, forgiveness and healing for everyone. This is the great start of a series from an author I haven't had the chance to read before. I love her characters and the issues addressed, they are passionate and quirky and utterly real. I can't wait to enjoy more of this series.
