“Oh, I’m sorry. Did you say you were happy? LOLOLOLOL!” ~ Life

Ember Hastings never thought she’d be dragged away from White Timber and everything she loved, thrust in the middle of a big city she hated, or have her husband of nine years say, “I can’t do this anymore,” all within the span of three months, yet here she is.

She misses her family, she misses the farm, and she misses having a backbone and caring whether or not the stain on her shirt is chocolate or shit. She works from home doing transcription. Does she really need to shower or leave the house?

Baker Matthews has been bringing everyone down lately with his grouchy attitude. His job is stressful, and sometimes depressing, but he wouldn’t change anything about it. When a glitch with the transcription company he’s using mistakenly sends him notes he wasn’t supposed to see, Baker finds himself laughing out loud for the first time in months.

He’s never met a woman who says whatever she’s thinking and doesn’t fawn all over him when she finds out what he does for a living. Until Ember Hastings comes barreling into his life, calling him Shit Mouth and asking if he has any balls.

But she wants to keep this professional. She made him pinky swear, and you don’t mess around with pinky swears. Baker will have to get creative if he wants to prove to Ember that he’s just her type.

We're back in Tara's hilarious Pumpkin-Farm world. Well, not really, because the sister/bff from the first book was moved to Chicago by her husband. But the marriage is not really working out. But Ember is trying everything to spark it back up again - until her idiot husband asks for a divorce. After dragging her away from her beloved home into the big city! And now she can't even leave because they share custody of little Lincoln.
Fast forward 15 months and Ember is still not happy in Chicago. Still not happy in her life. She also kinda hates her working-from-home job too. BUT - that's exactly how she meets Baker ...
Let the fun times begin. ☺


This book was amazingly hilarious and adorable and sweet and emaily and bantery and ... ugh - I just adored it! I LOVED the emails those two were writing each other. LOL!

We also have a few moving and heartbreaking moments.

But most of all you can just sit back, relax and lick off all the chocolate stains from your shirt while watching Ember & Baker fight for their Happily Ever After!
(P.S. if you've walked your dog or changed some diapers before licking your shirt - you might want to reconsider the licking thing!)

This was the perfect rom-com!
And I'm sooo ready for my own Ron Jeremy now! I remember finding one when I was in kindergarten, but I couldn't keep him! I didn't even know they were allowed to be kept as pets!!! I WANT ONE!!!!!

I need these two books to be on Netflix asap!
And while they're at it - why don't they just start a Tara Sivec channel with ALL THE BOOKS!?!?!

JUST MY TYPE was such an adorable & LOL funny love story! I loved it! Hurry to your nearest amazon for your own Baker ... this one is MINE!

ARC received via author for an honest review

Woohoo - that is always my reaction when I get a new Tara Sivec story on my kindle.

We are back (sorta) to Pumpkin land with Just My Type.

There are so many ways Baker and Ember's story could have gone wrong for them, however they went just right.

I laughed at their first email exchange, and then Ms Sivec had me giggling a lot more.

It is not all fun and games though.  There are some sad and poignant moments that made my eyes leak a little bit. And there is one particular person that I want to throat punch (virtually of course) as the story progressed.

After a run of true crime and darker books, Just My Type was a great antidote.

A fun, flirty and enjoyable read.  I can't wait to see what Ms Sivec brings us next.
