Read, Write, Love - Review & Giveaway

Book Five, The Remingtons

Bestselling author Kurt Remington lives to write. He spends twelve hours a day in front of his computer, rarely leaving the seclusion of his beach-front property, where he’s come to finish his latest thriller—that is, until free-spirited Leanna Bray nearly drowns in the ocean trying to save her dog. Kurt’s best-laid plans are shot to hell when he comes to their rescue. Kurt’s as irritated as he is intrigued by the sexy, hot mess of a woman who lives life on a whim, forgets everything, and doesn’t even know the definition of the word organized.

Review by Marlene Engel

The quietness of the beach house is just the place for bestselling author, Kurt Remington, to work on his latest thriller.  But the usual serine atmosphere is quickly disrupted when he spies Leanna Bray unsuccessfully trying to get her dog out of the rough ocean water.  Concerned that she’ll end up drowning, and wanting to get them both away from his beach house so he can finish writing, Kurt offers up his assistance.  It doesn’t take long for Kurt to learn that stubborn Leanna is not only eccentric in her lifestyle, but is as disorganized as Kurt is strictly organized.  But he finds himself captivated by her none the less.

Unlike Kurt’s immaculate house, Leanna’s cottage is a bit unkempt, but cute … sort of like Leanna.  Much of her time is spent making homemade jams and jellies that she sells at the local flea market, but her dream is to someday sell them in stores.  To say thank you for helping rescue her dog, Leanna decides to bring a basket of her homemade goods to Kurt.  Impressed by her thoughtfulness and intrigued by her free spirited ways, Kurt finds himself enjoying Leanna’s company.  Come join Kurt and Leanna as they test the theory of attraction and see if, indeed, opposites attract.

Read, Write, Love is the fifth book in The Remingtons series and the twelfth book in the Love in Bloom series.  I have been enjoying this series since the first book and can honestly say that I have loved each and every one of them.  Not only are the characters fun and sexy, but the storyline brings you in and holds your attention throughout the book.  I would not only recommend this book, but all of the books in the Love in Bloom series.
