Kowalski Family #9
Max Crawford has reached the point in life where he's starting to think about settling down. Unfortunately, he's always been a little awkward when it comes to social interactions, and working from home doesn't help. He spends so much time alone, painting beautiful, historically accurate model trains that half of Whitford has begun to joke that he may be a serial killer. Not exactly prime husband material.
Tori Burns has found happiness in Maine, thanks in large part to her shifts at the Trailside Diner. She likes the work, and she loves the local gossip. When shy, geeky Max Crawford becomes a regular, she's intrigued. When she finds out he's in the market for a wife, she's fascinated…and determined to help.
Molding Max into every woman's dream turns out to be much easier than expected. But has Tori's plan worked a little too well? As she turns his comfortable life all sorts of upside down, she'll have to find a way to show just how she's fallen for him…the real him
Ah, the big, huge, rambunctious Kowalski family & friends, and the stories of their loves and lives -- so fresh, original, delightful and absolute joy to read!
The stories are heart-felt, fun, HOT, loud, messy, and crazy. Just like the Kowalski family, and I love them. There are times when I laugh out loud, and times I'm so touched by the story, and the love in the community, that I have tears in my eyes.
The romances are steamy, hot, sensual, sweet, adorable, fun, witty, and enjoyable. It makes you smile and laugh, it breaks your heart a bit, but at the end you swoon from happiness. The characters are 'real', small town people, with everyday issues and problems, hopes and desires. It is easy to relate to them, cheer for them, and love them.
Max, with his quirks, traits, and habits is adorable - even though he himself prefer them to be called sexy. Tori is coping with issues of her parents painful divorce, and their actions there after. The friendship between them is delightful, the romance they develop is captivating.
If you want to smile, feel good, and find reasons to fall in love all over again, I highly recommend the Kowalski series. Five stars to the whole series!!
