Once you get the zing you can't go back.

Jane West has everything a woman could want. A job in a small Montana town's only adult store, two busy young boys and one dead husband. She's been waiting--for a little zing. That all changes one summer morning at a garage sale with her kids.

Now someone wants their garage sale find and will let nothing get in their way. Including Jane. This new excitement for Jane spells trouble for a relationship with new neighbor--and hot fireman--Ty Strickland. Can Jane and Ty handle a relationship meddling mother-in-law, crazy kids, and stay alive while trying to solve the garage sale mystery? Will their love be worth the wait?

This book was previously published under the title Gnome On The Range.

Editorial Reviews

Review

5 Stars---I've been thinking and thinking about how enjoyable this book was....going on two days now. I just can't seem to start reading another book just yet. I still have that feeling you get when a book touches you in some way. It's like I'm still reading it, but I've turned the last page, ages ago, it's that good. I guess that I needed that fun, laugh out loud, funny, not complicated, enjoyable read and didn't even know it. You saved the day Jennifer!

5 Stars--These is easily one of most entertaining romances that I have read. The inner dialogue of the heroine was humorous and clever, keeping me amused constantly. There was a suspense thread to the plot adding excitement, particularly at the end. The hero was suitably hot and the secondary characters good. What more could you want? More!-- carol55

5 Stars--Fabulous Opening. Truly funny. I really enjoyed this book. Loved Jane and Ty (who is mega-sexy!) Everyone should have a Goldie as a mother=in-law! I'm not sure when or why Gnomes became a hot item, but they were a nice addition to the story. Sex scenes hot. Loved them. I would recommend this book if you like your books contemporary, funny, and sexy. I'll be looking for Jennifer Zane's next book!--Cynthia

5 Stars--I've never read anything like this before. Such a great read! I've also never laughed out loud so much from a book in my life! Each character was so realistic and each added their own touch and influence to the story. Every laugh came out of left field and was perfectly written to blend with each event of the story.--AR Von

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny, and some spice with the sugar December 29, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
I bought this because the blurb cracked me up...and the book did not let me down. I laughed all the way through, and even got to experience a rather poignant romance. And then there's Ty...

Lots of sweet, and some serious spice that had me blushing, but then there's Ty...

...have I mentioned Ty?

*le sigh*

3.0 out of 5 stars Started Good and Kinda Fizzled January 31, 2012
By Lorijay
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This story didn't ring true for me. Right from the start the Fireman she's interested in tells her he's really only looking for sex. They have a couple meet-cutes and there's a zing. The first part was very good, funny and interesting; I enjoyed getting to know her and her two cute kids and she's having fun thinking about the sexy neighbor. As the story moves along, she reveals deep disappointment with her ex who cheated on her and didn't care for her even as she inexplicably begins to consider the Fireman who is clearly having commitment issues. Then they kinda get forced into a relationship and they are calling each other boyfriend/girlfriend and she goes and accepts a date from a creepy but hot Rancher who gives her a gross personal tour of his horse semen production area. The suspense part of the story was dumb and not very much of a mystery; the danger only existed as a way for the Fireman to have to rescue her, drag her behind the fire-truck to kiss her against his will, then walk away. For a story that started out in a sex-shop describing vibrators, the sex was quick, sparse and lukewarm. Good characterization with her two Moms, kids and the neighbor, but the storyline was weak. I skipped through quite a bit of the second half.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bad puns and classic melodrama February 1, 2012
By Ann
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
There is even a handlebar mustache on the villain. It is the classic romance and rescue story and I think it was very well done. Enjoy it for what it is and don't expect "true life" actions.

2.0 out of 5 stars A bit R-rated for my taste December 7, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Had no idea this book would be so graphic. Main character works at an "adult" store, meets fireman TY, within what one week, two??? they're going at it. There is a mystery involved even though it's a bit far-fetched. The author does have a comical writing style which I enjoyed, but I just thought the constant raw sex dialogue was over the top. The premise of something being hidden in gnome figures that bad guys want started out good, but what's in it just seemed silly. If you're not into graphic sex scenes and rude words, may want to pass this one up.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great read! January 28, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A great first novel (or tenth!). There is enough mystery to keep you intrigued, cute kids and a woman who doesn't always look her best.
Throw in a hunky new neighbor, an unusual job (sex toys and wild bachlorette parties), a past that has shaken your confidence, some wacky relatives and you have a laugh-out-loud romance. I highly recommend this!

4.0 out of 5 stars X Rated but cute February 25, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book isn't for the young,the prudes, or the faint at heart. The story is set in Montana country about a widow, a hot fireman, and a sick,sick rancher. The mother in law is hilarious with all her samples from her adult store.True love wins.Gnome On The Range

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun! January 29, 2012
By Pogonip
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
What a fun book! An unlikely mixture of single (widowed) mother with two boys, a mid-century ranch-style house in the suburbs, a job in an "adult" store, a strange and wonderful mother-in-law, two sexy men, a smattering of BDSM, horses, cattle, and, of course, gnomes! Not to be missed. The writing, proofreading, and editing are all above the usual standard for ebooks, so no distractions with oddly spelled words, sentences missing an essential part of speech, or the usual fare. Plus lots of good belly laughs.
