Book Description

City slicker Ami Jordan was just dumped by her back-stabbing boyfriend, has no job prospects, and can't find a decent cup of coffee in the entire state of Vermont. The last thing she needs is a sexy, bearded lumberjack complicating her life. Even if he’s smart, talented, and has the hottest ass she’s ever seen.

Tree house builder, environmental champion, and Bulldog owner Marcus Anderson has no patience for flatlanders with an attitude. But when landscape designer Ami Jordan shows up at his log cabin, he suddenly develops a hankering for a high-maintenance city gal. Now his house looks like a jungle, his recycling is in disarray, and his libido's on fire.

He's a lumberjack in love.

LUMBERJACK IN LOVE is a 27,000 word novella.

5.0 out of 5 stars Penny Watson Is A Genius :) September 9, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Oh my Lordy.... *runs screaming into the woods* I have a serious case of lust for a certain bearded lumberjack... Now THAT was NEVER a sentence I thought I would ever write in a romance review... EVER...

But this book was off the charts with everything;

- Funny, sassy heroine:

- SMOKING' HAWT, totally Alpha hero, who makes your *cough* unmentionables wet, who also happens to be a bearded lumberjack;

- Zinging one-liners and more lumberjack double entendres you can poke a funny stick at;
lumber-CHECK-jack :)

In short, a FREAKIN' AWESOME read!! Again I'm going to say hooray for authors going the self-publishing route, because if not, I would not have been able to read the gem that is Lumberjack In Love!!!

A BIG, HAIRY, 5 STARS to your book and your fantastic storytelling skills, Ms. Watson!!! Clearly, you are a genius, because you have managed to achieve the unachievable in my opinion; you made a big, hairy lumberjack, SEXY AS HELL! *YOWZA*

5.0 out of 5 stars Hot Beardy Men FTW! September 18, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I found Penny and her blog through someone else and after the initial blast of her love of dudes with beards and flannel, saw she had a giant heart and a completely absurd sense of humor. She never fails to make me laugh or grin and a time or two, yep, I've spit liquids from something she's said on Twitter. So that's my pre-review disclaimer: before reading this, I was pretty fond of Penny and her kind of semi-silly, action comedy slays me. Lumberjack In Love was a fun blend of all of the things that make me laugh and some tender, sweet and smokin' sexy stuff.

Hunky beardy Marcus Anderson is all alone chopping wood when Ami Jordan comes creeping into his yard in her stiletto-heeled boots, ogling his posterior. Okay, it does turn out that she has a reason for coming out to the boonies and bugging him. Her bean sprouts-eating sister has commissioned Marcus to build a playhouse for Ami's niece and she wanted her to check on it. It only takes one look at his lovely visitor to know that a cabin in Vermont is no place for a city slicker like Ami.
Ami's vast appreciation of Marcus doesn't extend to his real estate. It has too much outdoorsy stuff, including animals. Still, for a beard that gorgeously lush, a tush that deliciously gorgeous, dinner wouldn't be a gigantic sacrifice. She does have to be in the godforsaken area for a while yet and Marcus did invite her to see his log...cabin.

Ami is less of a nature-hater and more of an outside-disliker (a woman after my own heart). She's an award-winning children's landscape designer who got screwed over by her boyfriend and business partner and it's only logical - and Marcus agrees - that she work with him on his playhouse designs, giving him plenty of reasons to let her disrupt his life.

This was so much fun to read! Lumber Jack in Love is a great sizzling hot and funny contemporary romance set in a small town.

This short story packs quite a bit into it. Ami and Marcus are well developed characters, who at first appear to be as opposite as day and night. She a city gal; he a woodsman "lumberjack" that prefers the country. But quickly we see an attraction burning between them, and their flirting was just so fun to read. When things heated up - and I mean HEATED UP! - I thought Marcus might well be the most perfect man and Ami the luckiest lady alive. (Yum!)

The town folks congregate at a local general store, where we meet several other fun characters. Ami misses the good coffee and wine found in the big city, but she is falling in love with the people here. When a career changing opportunity gives her a chance to stay, she doesn't know what to do. Marcus, on the other hand, wants nothing more than to convince her to stay.

The lumberjack jokes were fast and frequent, and kept me laughing. The chemistry between Ami and Marcus sizzled, and despite them being so opposite it was easy to believe that these two belonged together. There were some great scenes, very original.

In summary, Lumber Jack in Love was a HOT, funny, small town romance with great chemistry and quirky characters. It has an opposites attract theme that I also love. I highly recommend it to anyone wanting a great `feel good' steamy romance read.

Note: the author Penny has been an online friend of mine for years, and I love to chat romance books with her. But she did not ask me to read or review her book, I am simply a big fan of her writing. And this is the best book she's written yet.
