So, not long ago I made the rule that Bibliogal would stop reviewing Contemporary Romance and Erotica. I still stand by that rule but RC Boldt gets grandfathered in. Why, because it’s my blog and I can change the rule anytime. Also, she writes good books.
So, to start our journey into Book 4 of the Teach Me series, I will let you know up front that I won a paperback copy in a contest….using a picture of THIS GUY………Misha Friggin’ Collins! This pretty much means we’re off to a good start already 😉
I received my prize and dove in. I’ve read books 1-3 in this series and the main character in Laws of Attraction, Langley, had been mentioned briefly in them. Her love interest Lawson has been a secondary character in an ensemble cast and featured throughout all of the previous books. I’m not gonna lie, Lawson is my favorite MC ever! (Yes Mr. Darcy, he knocked you off your pedestal, though you’ll always be my first 😉 ) While these characters are featured in previous novels, this book , like all the others in the series, can be read as a stand alone.
Lawson is an elementary school reading teacher with a Star Wars obsession, razor sharp wit, a ready smile, and a heart of gold. Plus he’s a Cross Fit devotee, but he’s not a douche about it, I gotta appreciate that. He’s always going out of his way to help his friends and make them smile. That’s my formula for a Prince Charming!
Langley is a former United States Air Force Combat Pararescuemen, also known as a PJ. She’s had a pretty shitty life and her military career was all she had going for her until she was more or less forced out. She finds herself in Florida working for a security company and being forced to attend karaoke parties with her boss’s friends. At first, she attends these outings begrudgingly, but soon the group grows on her and she begins to relax. She also finds that she’s attracted to the goofy Lawson. This is something she absolutely did not want, but then again, the heart wants what it wants 😉
The book is about Langley trying to overcome her emotional baggage and her past and learning to trust her heart. Sigh! I fell for it. I absolutely loved this book. I’m giving it a 5 out of 5 stars!
I loved this book and all the others in the series because the characters are actually fairly believable. No crazy billionaires, no forbidden or taboo stuff, no secret babies, all things that make me cringe. They are a large ensemble cast of characters and each one is unique and likable. This book in particular made me laugh so hard! Puns, Sexy Yoda Talk, embarrassing Grandmas, and flighty but lovable Moms! I also love Lawson’s penchant for graphic tee shirts…I share this love.
Langley is a force to be reckoned with and a strong female MC. She’s a fully dimensional character, but not a total Mary Sue, which is refreshing. As a former PJ she can definitely hold her own and she can match wits with Lawson in the joke cracking department. Brains, Brawn, and Beauty…the trifecta! I would recommend this for Romance Readers with a sense of humor and nerds who like their MC Hero’s to have a great sense of humor! Not for kids! Definite 18+ age range due to some sexy scenes 😉
