Women often say a good man is hard to find. And a hard man is even better.
That's why I'm quite a catch - good, hard, loaded, and wait for it...I'm ready to settle down too. But the woman I want to pitch my tent with lives clear across the country. Neither of us wants to get lost in those woods. All I have to do is resist her for the week she's in town.
I try. I swear I try. But yeah, that doesn't work out. And after one fantastic night with my good friend Mia, I'm ready to give her years of nights under the stars. What's a few thousand miles when love's involved? But there's a hitch in my plans - she just hired my adventure tour company. If there's one thing I'm committed to, it's running a squeaky clean business. Number one on my list of iron-clad rules?
Don't screw your customers.
But what's a guy to do when she's so hard to resist? How tough can it be to keep our hands off each other for a quick group tour down the hills and over the trails? I'm about to find out, and I have a feeling I'm going to need a new badge of honor because things are about to get very hard in the woods.

Fun sexy read!!
Hard Wood by Lauren Blakely
Another fun read by Lauren Blakely. We have grown to love the wittiness of the characters while they are navigating through their feelings for each other. There is a twist in this book that I found to be refreshing and fun to read. This book is from Patrick’s point of view but we also get the perspective from an unexpected source. I would love to tell you about it but it would spoil the surprise.
Patrick is the owner of an outdoor company that takes clients on outdoor retreats. He is ready to settle down and go all in with a relationship. He has grown his business to be on both coasts and enjoys being outside on his days off. Avid outdoors men.
Meet Mia owner and founder of Pure Beauty. She is a lover of animals and strives to help wherever she can. Mia lives on opposite ends of the country and is guarding her heart after a bad experience with one of Maxx’s friends.
These two have been friends for a relatively short time. So, we don’t have the second chance type book this time. The commentary in Patrick’s head was a hoot to read and had me wanting to just smack him upside the head. Lauren continues to amaze me in her writing style and how effortlessly these books flow with the banter, sexual innuendo and everyday situations that help the reader be part of the story.
There are also glimpses into our favorite past characters to let us know what has been going in their lives even though it is just a small glimpse. If you are a diehard Lauren Blakely fan or just getting started this is the perfect installment to read. The surprises are fun and Patrick is my kind of hunk. Happy reading.
Zeus is a genius
Yum, Hard Wood. Doesn't that title just grab your attention? Well let me tell you the entire book will keep your attention from beginning to end then you will be sad it is over. I am a Lauren Blakely fan girl so I love every book she writes but this one was special to me. Patrick and Mia are a fun couple and they both tie back to other characters from past books that we loved and this book gives a chance to catch up on our beloved friends. This is laugh out loud funny, sexy, hot as hello, and a few surprises that will totally make you grin from ear to ear. I was given a copy of the ARC to voluntarily read this book and give my honest opinion. I think this was my favorite of this stand alone series and trust me I loved them all. You don't have to read the others before this one as it is a stand alone but you will want to as they are all great. I highly recommend this book.
