I really liked Foley. He’s earthy and dirty and foul-mouthed (and minded at times) and spends most of his time insulting those he cares about in a thoroughly manly way. He has tattoos and a history, loves his mother, has a best-friend who is more of a brother and falls hard for Cyn from the first moment they meet, even if she is kind of mean towards him. I loved how he loved everything about Cyn – her mind, her body and her mean-streak. He may be flirty and full of compliments, but he means every one and he’s never blind to her trickier aspects. Best of all, he never wants to change her, not even a tiny bit.
Cyn is a little trickier. She’s smart and feisty and isn’t afraid of standing up for herself (in most cases). She’ll happily go toe-to-toe with Foley on any issue and she won’t stand for any sexist nonsense. However, she has a whopper of a complex about her size and shape, thanks entirely to her mother. Because of this, she also has a bad dating history, which is what makes her so wary of Foley at first. I got all this and understood it, but it still irritated me when she constantly sets up invisible hoops for Foley to jump through in ways that mean he can never win.
I liked these two together, but the constant circling back to Cyn’s issues was a tiring after a while. Other things do happen in the book, and even some of the other characters get POV scenes, but really the main thing this book is about is Cyn and her battle with her self-esteem. It takes a long time for any progress to be made on this front, and that did stop me from enjoying this quite as much as I’d hoped.
Overall this is a good, solid romantic read. The characters are interesting, the romance is hot and there are plenty of fun moments. It might have been nice to have spent more time away from Cyn’s weight and shape, maybe exploring the things these two have in common beyond their obvious attraction, but on the whole it’s good. Especially if you like rough guys with hearts of gold.
(I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.)
Just looking at Foley Sanders and you will want to run away until you look closer. He is a mechanic and is covered in tattoos and looks the part of a bad boy. But under all of that, he has a big heart and is looking for the right girl. He just doesn't know it yet. He is loyal to his friends and will protect those he loves.
Cyn Nichols has moved back home to help her brother Matt with the coffee shop and look into opening a few more. When she goes to the nearby auto shop to talk to them about taking over the parking spaces in front of the coffee shop, she encounters Foley. She is not intimated by his tats and bad boy image. She actually finds herself attracted to him. But after her last disaster of a relationship, she has swore off men for a while.
Will Cyn give Foley a chance and go out with him? Will her insecurities get in the way of a perfect relationship for both Cyn and Foley?
I liked book 1, it was an okay story but I loved Foley and his story had me laughing and crying. I can't wait for book 3 to see what happens with Sam.

In book #2 we get to know Foley a little better. Huge, tattooed and hanging with the other beasts at Webster's, he is certainly intimidating.....but not to Cyn.
Cyn has a temper to match her fiery hair. Although successful in business, she still has her issues and has sworn off men - completely.
Can huge Foley break through her tough exterior or is he destined to perpetually put his foot in it?
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It's well written and you're bound to love Foley. Despite his rough exterior, he's really a gentleman at heart.
The sub characters are great too. Lou is certain to have a great story to tell but I've got to admit that Sam still intrigues me the most and I'm desperate for his story. I hope it's next!

I don't read romance for realism. I want to escape reality for a while and enjoy an HEA. That being said, I would have given this book more stars if it hadn't found that this perception on my part kept jarring me out of the story.
Did I enjoy this book? Yes. Would I recommend it? Yes, but with the reservation listed above. To anyone reading this review, you may not have the same perception as I, or even if you do, it may not have the same effect on you. If this would be a non-issue for you, then I think you would enjoy the book. This is the only book I have read by the author.
I will probably read Sam's story when it's available. He seems like he will love hard.
Our hero, Foley, is not an ambitious guy. he likes his life but when he lays on Cyn, he is a goner for her curves and her brains. Cyn is not planning to stay in town for the long haul and that's Foley's challenge to convince her.
