Who knew knitting could be so difficult? But Dylan isn't about to be beaten by a bit of wool or by the infuriatingly sexy Ronnie. So he joins her knitting group and proceeds to charm all Ronnie's friends. But when she agrees to private knitting lessons she realises she might have found herself getting a little bit tangled up with the one man she never expected.
This is the first novel I've read by Heidi Betts but if all her books are like this one then I'm definitely going to buy up her back list!
I love a couple who start off at odds with each other and throughout the course of the novel turn all that passion into love. Ronnie and Dylan definitely fit that bill. From page one I was hooked and rooting for them and it was delicious to watch the pair dance around each other on their journey towards a happily ever after.
The story itself is sexy, funny and really entertaining - this was the kind of book you didn't want to put down and has characters that you'll still be thinking about long after the book is done. It's not heavy on the knitting so don't worry if, like me, you've never knitted before. But after reading this book I definitely want to try my hand at it! There are two more books in this series and I cannot wait to read Jenna and Grace's stories, Loves Me, Loves Me Knot and Knock Me for a Loop.
If you like fun and sexy romances with great characters then I'd really recommend this book to you. I really loved it from the first page to the last. 5 stars.
Rival journalists Dylan and Veronica (Ronnie) have been challenging each other to madcap dares in their respective newspaper columns for a long time now, but when Dylan makes a somewhat sexist crack, avid knitter Ronnie hits onto the perfect plan: Dylan must learn how to knit. Dylan of course, can't back down- even if his masculine pride is at stake, he's not going to turn away from such a dare--and surely he's man enough to knit a scarf! Ronnie however is unwittingly pulled into being his knitting coach, and as she starts spending a little more time with Dylan and gets to know him as a person, she can't help but think he's not the arrogant jack-ass she's always thought he was...
A fabulously funny read with scorching sex-scenes to boot (though they do seem a little unbelievable in places--- HOW many times in one night?!). I just adored Dylan and Ronnie, who is actually much more vulnerable deep down than she initially appears. Their friends too, as secondary characters are written really well- I particularly like the hints of a back story between Jenna and her ex-husband, who feature in the follow on story and which I can't wait to read.
I've read a lot of what I've dubbed as `knit-lit' recently, but this one was one of the best--even if you aren't a knitter then that doesn't matter, it isn't a huge part of the story, more of a sub-plot if I'm honest. There is however, a knitting pattern for `Dylan's scarf' at the end of the book which is very cute. I also wouldn't call this a `romance' per se, which comes down to the naughtiness aspect of the plot- but if you're a fan of raunchy chick-lit then believe me, this is a must read.

I just didn't think the characters fit any of their roles and the only chemistry between Ronnie and Dylan was between the sheets or wherever.
As for the knitting woven in and out of the pages, I didn't buy it. I'm a knitter and I appreciate the craft in all its forms, but I have to say this book made me want to stick my own needles in my eyes!
It goes without saying that I won't be reading the other books in the series.
As I said before, the premise was good, the secondary characters, like the main characters are well developed and you are kept busy while you are reading but there is a lot of sex that keeps repeating and that can be distracting. After the first scene, it becomes repetitive and at times seems to be "filler" as if the author has lost her place and needs to find it again.
I thought the group of women getting together every week to knit and talk is a great subplot but the unbelivable part is the "magic" spinning wheel that spins the yarn and brings Ronnie and Dylan together.
I am not sure if I will read the other books in this series so I am giving this book 3 stars.
Dylan and Ronnie both applied for the job of columnist at the Cleveland Herald. Dylan got it. Ronnie became a columnist for a smaller rival newspaper. They hate each other. In their columns they challenge and dare each other to go bungee jumping, white-water rafting, getting a tattoo, etc. to see who will wimp out first. Ronnie's latest taunt: she dares Dylan to learn to knit and complete a knitted item within the month. Dylan attends Ronnie's weekly knitting circle and has other interactions with Ronnie during this project.
This was a pleasant story. It was fun watching Dylan and Ronnie fall for each other, going from hate, to lust, to love. The ending was nice. The characters and plot were typical for contemporary romance, but I'm looking for something a little different. I might have liked more unique and interesting character development. There were several sex scenes that seemed longer than expected due to a lot of conversation within those scenes. There is a hint of fantasy in the story. One character believes an item has a magical quality.
Story length: 296 pages. Swearing language: strong (including religious swear words). Sexual language: strong. Number of sex scenes: 8. Total number of sex scene pages: 39. Setting: current day Cleveland, Ohio, and Mercer, Pennsylvania. Copyright: 2009. Genre: erotic contemporary romance with a hint of fantasy.
Loved the characters and hope there are more books with the same characters.
I would recommend this book to everyone aged 20-80!
