I loved this book! The characters were so real and likable, and the story so well-written it sucked me right in. I couldn't put the book down, wondering just how Tag and Kayla were going to get together. Although you could call this a "cougar" story, it was about so much more than that. The restaurant, the candy and the budding business relationship fleshed out this romance to be a slice of life, putting you right in each scene. The language was amazing. The author told her story with simple elegance of language, painting pictures with carefully crafted sentences that evoked a feeling or a setting. I loved the supporting characters -- except maybe Gary and that nosy Mrs. Quinn! I felt the emotions of the book and the twists and unique quality made me put everything aside to stay up too late reading. If you love a well-written romance with quirky, real characters, this is the book for you. ~Jean C. Joachim
The story of Michaela and Owen is breathtaking. You will not only be wanting to laugh but you will feel their pain. The details are written well, and well you will be left to use your imagination but not in a bad way. It is a very fast paced and easy read that will play through your head like a movie. This series will keep you interested and highly entertained. Each book is placed around a holiday. The title goes along with each holiday. This book Deep-Fried Sweethearts goes with Valentine's Day. ~ Amanda Hamilton
