BLURB FROM GOODREADS:
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.
“Slow and steady wins the race, right? Especially when it comes to relationships.”
Simple, sweet and heartfelt. Rachael never fails to bring a smile to my face everytime I read a novel of hers. This series just keeps getting better and better. I absolutely enjoyed the first book in the series and this following installment isn’t an exception. Just like other Rachael’s novels, this book has the simple but meaningful love story that Rachael always do best.
In this story, Noah has just lost his job and having problems with how he can provide for his daughters. Being a single Dad is not easy, that’s why he is certain that he has no time for relationships… can Cassie change his mind?
Being a widow can change someone. Especially if the relationship is not the relationship that everyone sees. Cassie is not someone who goes for fast and spontaneous, she made the mistake once and she’s not about to do it again… but when it comes to Noah, why is she suddenly changing?
How these two people got together was really a very sweet journey. Just like the quote said, it was slow but steady. I love how this is not just a love story. In a short amount of pages, I got to know Cassie and Noah pretty well. Along the way, they fixed some problems and issues with the help of each other. Which made the book more sweet, genuine and meaningful.
Rachael did it again! This is another great installment in a very incredible series.
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.
