Book Description

Fashion designer Libby Griffin has had the week from hell--terminated from her job and heart-wrenching news from the doctor. Hoping for time alone to regroup, Libby rents a cabin on Grand Lake St. Mary's for five months. Right away she meets the most irritating man on the planet, who also happens to be drop-dead delicious.

Recently divorced author Maxwell August has a book due, and his muse has gone into hiding. With a chip on his shoulder, his writing in stuck-mode, he heads to the lake only to encounter a monumental distraction with blonde hair and hazel eyes.

Will these two right-brainers allow the off-the-charts attraction brewing between them to grow? Or deny it to focus on the things they think are more important and miss a chance at forever?

Mr. August is a sweet, steamy novel peopled with characters I'd like watching my back. Jan Romes has a gift for natural dialogue and even pacing. I enjoyed her book and look forward to her next story.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must read April 4, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was such a beautifully written book depicting what happens when two individuals take time off from reality to really focus on what they really want out of life. Both were not looking for love but destiny intervened making them interact with each other continuously letting the sparks fly. The characters were well written and real. I could not put down this book.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good Reading March 3, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Nearly running down the hero in the first paragraph is an attention grabbing way to open a story. And right off sparks fly between Libby Griffin and Max August. Both are reeling from major setbacks in their lives. Libby from losing her job and her boyfriend, and Max from his divorce. Neither is looking for another relationship but…

Ms. Romes offers flawed characters this reader empathized with. And she provided the hero and heroine with backup support in her minor characters too. Her use of these secondary characters to move the plot forward is woven through the fabric of the story.

While her setting is not unique it is vividly portrayed and I could easily imagine myself there at the campsite.
If I had a problem with anything it was the number of times the author had her hero and heroine driving through blizzards and ignoring the dangers and official advice to stay off the roads when snow storms hit.

All in all, I enjoyed Mr. August and in part was drawn in by the unusual title. I found Mr. August a light and enjoyable read, and read it in one sitting.

I loved this book. Jan is great at adding twist and turns that you don't expect! Her main characters are strong, independent women who know what they want and come back fighting to get what they want in life.

I enjoy books with strong, feisty women and this did not disappoint. I wish there had been a bit more fleshing out of the other people, but this is a short satisfying read.
