Passion Between The Stacks
Helen Murphy loves her supportive family, her close-knit circle of friends, and her part-time job at the library. What she doesn't love: the fact that she's a thirty-six-year-old near-virgin who lives in her parents' house. Eager to move out and reclaim her independence at long last, she's determined to get the library's new Community Outreach Coordinator position. Even if that means working side-by-side with the one man she desperately wants to avoid--Niceville's ambitious mayor Wes Ramirez, who happens to be her only previous lover, and the source of her greatest humiliation…
Wes needs to make up for his disastrous one-night--actually, make that one-hour--stand with deliciously nerdy librarian Helen. As they plan the city's upcoming May Day celebrations together, he'll try to prove he can do better, in bed and out. It may take every bit of his creativity and determination, but their budding romance has already gone down in flames once . . . and he'll be damned if he'll let Helen go a second time.
One of my favorites from this author
I really enjoy Olivia Dade's romances. I've had a particularly nice time reading through this series. I've enjoyed some books more than others, and Mayday is one of my favorites.
I always like it when the H and h have a past (friends, frenemies, former classmates). Beyond all the detail given to support the story, You just know that the characters know things about each other simply because they've shared common space with someone over a period of years. It adds a familiarity that makes the characters more real for me.
Anyway, in Mayday we get another librarian's love story and learn a lot more about the hunky mayor. It's a great read with a HEA that I anticipated, but didn't enjoy any less.
I received an ARC of this book, from the publisher, via NetGallery, in exchange for a fair and honest review.
