Women often say a good man is hard to find. And a hard man is even better.

That’s why I’m quite a catch good, hard, loaded, and wait for itIm ready to settle down too. But the woman I want to pitch my tent with is precisely the one I need to stay far away from.

After that fantastic night with Mia Summers, I’m ready to give her many more. But there's a hitch in my plans she just hired my company. If theres one thing Im committed to, its running a squeaky clean adventure tour business. One of the iron-clad rules?

Don’t screw your customers.

I can follow my own guidelines. After all, it’s only a week-long trip with Mia and her employees over the trails and down the hills I guide them on. I can obey the ruleseven if its hard in the woods.

I'm about to give myself a badge of honor when the storm of the century hits, sending everyone else running for cover, but us. It's my biggest temptation and me, alone for a long weekend. You don’t screw the client, especially when you’re already in love with her . . .

But what’s a guy to do when she’s so hard to resist?

We already met him in Joy Ride - he was the cute neighbor. And he was already interested in Max's sister back then.
And he still is. Mia is his dream woman. And he's ready to settle down.
Too bad that Mia lives in California!
But maybe he can convince her that New York is not too shabby a place to live - and fall in love in!
But Mia's business is in California and she's a bit scared to start something....
But she's already halfway in love with him and his cat!


Another amazingly funny and adorable and sexy Lauren Blakely Male POV book!
I just love those. I want them to never end!!! I hope Lauren invents endless characters for this 'series'.
But everyone's married now - no more single guys! But I still hope we'll get more male POVs from Lauren!

This one was just as great as the others. It's just too adorably funny when a guy is telling us his story. So different from all those girl-POV books!

Patrick is mega adorable. He's not like all the other guys - scared of something serious! He wants serious - he wants to settle down with - preferably Mia - and his cat Zeus.

Zeus stole the show btw. He's a famous hiking cat! Patrick takes him on his hikes and canoe-rides! He already has a million Instagram followers! And I hate cats! ☺ But Zeus is cool!
(We also get a few chapters in his POV - and in those we hear a bit about what Mia is thinking too!)

It takes Patrick a while to convince Mia that he's her happily ever after - but we are thoroughly entertained while watching them fight for their happy end!

I so want Lauren's male POV books to become a tv-show one day! Come on Netflix - do this already!!!

HARD WOOD was such an adorable love story! A hot guy and his famous cat looking for their happily ever after ... Perfect #RomCom! Hollywood please come and make something out of these book!! Readers, please run to your nearest amazon asap for your own PATRICK - this one is MINE!!!

Review coming soon - Janeane's on vacation atm! ♥

And I'm baaa-aaaack (and struggling to get back to real life!)

Gah, what was not to love about this book.  Sexy neighbour? Check!  Adorable girl next door? Check.  Adventure cat? Check!

We have met Patrick and Mia in the earlier books, and now we get their story, and it is adorable, cute, sexy, flirty and fun.

There are not many female authors that I like their male POV stories, however Ms Blakely is one that I always like.

Not going to lie though - the scene stealer in this story is Zeus, a hiking, adventure loving, Instagram star cat. I am soooo not a cat person at all, but Zeus is one I think I could take to!

I loved being taking  on Mia and Patrick's story as he fights to convince Mia that he's her one <3

Can he do it? For you that you need read for yourself!  Go, buy it, read it, love it!


If you haven't read BIG ROCK & MISTER O & WELL HUNG  & FULL PACKAGE & Joy Ride yet - DO IT NOW!!
