My Review:No more chocolate! No more meddling! No more men!
New Year’s resolutions are great. Announcing them in a crowded bar, with a chocolate martini in her hand? Not Maddie Cash’s finest moment. It’s time this new realtor got serious about her life and this time, she means it.
But when hospital volunteering lands her at the bedside of bruised and battered Mick Meyer, who has no knowledge of Maddie’s reputation – and no memory of the kiss he begged from her during that long, pain-filled night, her best-laid plans are put in jeopardy. It’s not just his sweet tooth that’s tempting her.
The hunky bush pilot with the concussion has an old family property to unload. Making this sale could be Maddie’s professional salvation. But when Mick turns on the charm, she’s in danger of forgetting all her best intentions… on chocolate… on meddling… and especially on men.
Something about this felt off from the beginning - I'm not sure it was just the writing and editing or something else that I can't properly articulate. Maddie and Mick both felt undeveloped in their motivations and their attraction to each other - it seemed more like a convenience factor and right place/right time than anything deeper or meaningful. Maddie also drove me a bit bonkers in that she was just all over the place and her "new self" and resolutions seemed silly and unformed. Mick was just odd - even at the end, I didn't feel like I even knew who he was or what he wanted. I liked the glimpses into Marietta (the site of one of my favorite series, Carrigans of Circle C) but this book didn't live up to the other I read in this series.
The Chocolate Cure came out last week on January 4, 2017, and you can purchase HERE. I LOVED the first book in this series, Melt My Heart, Cowboy, and am definitely still going to read books 2 and 3!
He'd never had a head injury before. He'd expected the nausea, the dizziness, the confusion. He hadn't expected infatuation. He wanted to kiss that little spot where her throat ticked and bobbed. Was she feeling it too?
