    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!

    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.

    Brilliant, Clever and Sexy Romance!

    I loved this latest love story in the standalone Male-POV books by Lauren Blakely. I just never tire of these touching, fun, sweet and sexy romances! Patrick and Mia were attracted to each other from their very first meeting. The problem is that they live on opposite coasts and rarely see each other. Mia is home for her brother's wedding and Patrick is ready to let her know how deeply he cares for her. But Mia just might have a few surprises of her own. I loved everything about this forbidden love story. It’s not full of angsty drama, but when Patrick takes Mia's group on a guided tour thru his adventure tour company, there are a few thrilling moments that take you by surprise. Ms Blakely creates wonderfully refreshing, multifaceted stories about real people who are interesting, socially conscious and face life head-on. It’s loaded with sexual tension, smoking hot passion, witty banter, laugh out loud moments, and those sweet and heartwarming moments as well, not to mention a very adorable cat named Zeus. The occasional 'Conversations with the Cat' were clever and hilarious, allowing us to peek into the minds of both Mia and Zeus. Their family and friends all make appearances as well, and it is a fun treat catching up on what is happening in their lives. This book is another brilliant, clever and sexy Blakely romance that is a MUST READ!
