Review: Lumberjack In Love by Penny Watson

Title: Lumberjack In Love 
Author: Penny Watson 
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Number of Pages 114
Source: My copy 

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.

I have to admit I didn't expect to be pulled into this novella as much as I was. By now, everyone knows my track record with contemporary romances. I want to love them, they just don't love me. However, this contemporary romance just worked for me.

I loved the banter between Ami and Marcus, and while their relationship picked up quickly, it wasn't instalove. This novella is on the steamy side, but I don't think I'd call it erotica,  more it's a b0rderline between Contemporary Romance & Erotica if that makes sense.  

I read this on a day I wasn't feeling good, and this proved to be just what I needed. It was light, fun, sexy and just plain cute. I am really going to have to read this authors Christmas novellas now!
