All I wanted was some no-strings attached sex, where small talk wasn’t necessary. There’d be no reminders of laundry that needed to be done and my endless list of responsibilities could be forgotten.
Signing up for the Timber dating app was my answer. No wining or dining; just sex. Those were my rules. I never imagined I’d meet champion lumberjack Magnus Andersen, or that he’d be interested in me.
We’re from two different worlds. He lives a life of luxury, while I’m barely making ends meet. He’s prime rib and I’m mac and cheese.
But the more I get to know him the less those differences seem to matter. He thinks this could work and I just might be crazy enough to believe him.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
5 Stars to Timber by author duo Remy Blake.
As a blogger/reviewer there are many times I wish my mind could articulate my exact thoughts to paper but sadly that doesn’t often happen to me. Every once in a while a book comes along that not only did I enjoy, but surprised me. Having read Clipped, which comes before Timber, I knew who Magnus and Lucy were. While we got up close and personal with Lucy in Clipped, Magnus…not so much. All I really knew was that he was Wes’s competition and he didn’t like him. So going into Timber, I already had an opinion. Well the lesson here is never presume you know someone from what other people say. As a matter of fact, that reminds me of a quote in this book from a conversation with Lucy and Wes as she defends Magnus’ character.
“He’s not good enough for you.”
“How do you know? Do you know anything about him besides what you’ve read or heard from other people?”
I adored Magnus! While he was big, bearded, burly, and intimidating, he was also a big-hearted teddy bear. A gentleman. Magnus was perfect for Lucy and she for him. At first their relationship, which starts on a dating app, moves slowly. But as it grows, so does my smile. There were sweet moments in this book that I loved. There was also many laugh aloud moments. Of course there were some sexy moments as well. In addition, the secondary characters endeared me to the story even more with their banter and humor.
When an author duo writes a single story, you wonder whether or not it will flow smoothly and the pace will be steady. If I didn’t know there were two authors writing this book, I wouldn’t have guessed. Every word flowed making this book a steady page turner. The only time I was disappointed was the end. I wanted a longer book. I wanted more Magnus. So if you haven’t checked out Remy Blake yet, I recommend you do that.
This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it.
