Love & Rockets by Maggie Wells REVIEW


Smart is the new sexy…

They say if you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen, but it’s not the sauce at The Pit BBQ that has Darla Kennet breaking a sweat. The sassy single mom has waited tables in Mobile for years to support herself and her daughter, Grace, and she’s never let anything get her rattled…until now.  Somehow, handsome aerospace engineer Jake Dalton has gotten under her skin.

Although they went to school together, Jake doesn’t remember much about Darla. Back then the brainiac future rocket scientist always had his head in a book. But now that a chance meeting has him helping Grace apply to space camp, he’s been pulled into Darla’s orbit. And it isn’t long before Jake and Darla have a heated meeting of their own celestial bodies. The trouble is, Jake wants more. Convincingcautious, fiercely independent Darla to trust him with her heart just may be his most challenging mission yet… 

-- REVIEW --
I enjoyed this story. I thought this to be a fun and sweet read.  There were a lot of places I laughed and smiled. I really loved how this author created the small town feel. All the characters were enjoyable and I love the restaurant crew. My favorite part is probably Jake's mom in the end. That cracked me up. Being a mom I could totally understand it though. 

The problem I had with this book is at the halfway mark the love scenes. For me it kind of put me off on the story. It just didn't flow and kind of took over. I think it could have been a great book without that part. I dunno it just didn't flow with the story for me.

Still this was an enjoyable romance.

*this book is on pre-order right now - release date November 22, 2016.*
