When I read the blurb for I Owe You One, I was immediately excited to start reading the book. Set in England, the story follows a girl everyone calls Fixie - because she has a compulsion to fix things. When a stranger asks her to watch his laptop in a coffee shop while he takes a call, she is happy to help. And when she ends up saving the stranger’s laptop from disaster, he insists on giving her an IOU for a favor. According to the blurb, a hilarious bout of favor-trading and love-falling ensues.
I don’t know what it is about summer, but I always struggle to read the heavy stuff during the warmest months of the year. I’ve been reading a lot of light romances - a surprising number of which have multiple authors, like this review I did earlier this month - and this one fulfilled my need for summer fluff quite nicely.
Amazon Kindle’s “Recommended for You” list got me again, guys! I’m telling you, I need to stop looking at that list or I’m going to have to get another part time job to afford my book addiction (since employers don’t hire people they have to pay benefits to anymore…) This time, it recommendedThe Decoy Bride by Lizzie Shane and I happened to be looking desperately for some kind of light-hearted hijinx to help me ride the tide of emotions from the last book I read. Of course this one caught my attention!
I was walking through Barnes & Noble the other day looking for a good deal and I came upon a table marked 2 for $8. Usually there isn’t anything to catch my interest on this table - I’ve either already read the book or it’s old enough that I made the decision not to read it a long time ago. This time, though, I was in luck. Good Christian Bitches, by Kim Gatlin, caught my eye almost right off the bat and the blurb on the back held my interest. I decided to read and review it immediately.
