REVIEW- DANGER, SWEETHEART- MARYJANICE DAVIDSON
Blake Tarbell has a town to save. Rich, carefree, and used to the Vegas party lifestyle, Blake is thrown for a curve when his former cocktail-waitress mother pleads he go back to her roots to save the town she grew up in. Blake's used to using money to solve his problems, but when he arrives in Sweetheart, North Dakota, this city boy has to trade in his high-priced shoes for a pair of cowboy boots...and he's about to get a little help from the loveliest lady in town...
Natalie Lane's got no time for newbies. The prettiest gal to ever put on a pair of work gloves, there's nothing she can't do to keep a farm up and running. But when a handsome city-slicker rolls into town with nothing but bad farmer's instincts and good intentions, Natalie's heartstrings are pulled. She's about to teach him a thing or two about how to survive in Sweetheart. And he's about to teach her a thing or two about love...
ARC from NetGalley in exchange for my honest Review
I have a confession-way back - oh say at least ten years ago, when I read the very first Betsy book by MJD I fell in love with the all snark and heart and crazy goodness. Sadly for me, around 2010 MJD changed the way she wrote. So much of what I loved was...different. Shame on me, but I quit reading (but not buying-I still have a shelf filled with her books that now, after reading Danger, Sweetheart I'll be revisiting ASAP).
When I saw DS up on NetGalley I was...excited? Intrigued? So I asked and received and boy, am I ever so happy.
For me, MJD is back baby! All her crazy writing like chicken running around with it's head cut off is there. I love each and every wacky sentence? Word?
Whatever, however- I LOVED IT.
Even better, MJD warns you at onset the book is filled with romance tropes. Seriously, it has just about everything (but maybe not the kitchen sink! ha ha ha)It's aptly named, perhaps again, as even a warning to we the reader.
I can't even begin to describe the crazy fun this book is, except I will warn you that you will want to prepare to be able to gobble it up all in one sitting. And if you're like me, maybe the ending will have you squealing and hoping that maybe, just maybe another book isn't too far off. Another trope in and of itself!
