BLOG TOUR w/ GIVEAWAY: Rough Around the Edges meets Refined by Rachel Anderson

Rough Around the Edges

All opinions expressed are solely my own.


For Noah Mackie, life is finally back on track. He has a great support system, a promised promotion is on its way, and he's finally getting the hang of this single father thing. But when the job falls through and his neighbor's matchmaking efforts become more aggressive, Noah is in for yet another unwanted detour. With his career and two spirited daughters to worry about, he doesn't have time for dating—especially not someone like Cassie Ellis, his girls' beautiful and sophisticated dance instructor, who is about as open and approachable as a brick wall. Rough around the Edges Meets Refined is about two people who think they know exactly what they want but who have no idea what they really need. It's about learning that people aren't always what they seem and that sometimes life’s detours take you exactly where you need to go.

USA Today bestselling author, Rachael Anderson is the mother of four and is pretty good at breaking up fights, or at least sending guilty parties to their rooms. She can't sing, doesn't dance, and despises tragedies. But she recently figured out how yeast works and can now make homemade bread, which she is really good at eating.


Another winner from Rachael Anderson!  I really love her books.  Her characters are so easy to like and care about and they feel so real, with real problems and strengths as well as weaknesses.  Cassie and Noah both have their own wounds to deal with that make them reluctant to falling in love again, but sometimes life just happens despite our best efforts to resist it.  I have to say that one of the things I love most about Rachael's books are the interactions between her characters, they are so fun to read. In this book, I especially enjoyed seeing Noah interact with his daughters.  Despite the loss of his wife and his job troubles, he still takes the time to love and care for his daughters to the best of his ability.  Would that all children had such fathers!  And yet, children need mothers too, something that Noah struggles with  since he has no desire to date.  Cassie on the other hand was burned badly by her marriage and is afraid to trust what she sees in Noah. Overall, another delightful clean romance by a fabulous author that I just couldn't put down.
