Product Description

Two crazy grannies scheme to untie their artistic grandchildren. When twenty-eight year old Dylan Bradley, a former steamy romance illustrator, meets Caylor Evans, he's trying to build up a new professional reputation while recovering from a bad breakup with an older woman. Meanwhile, thirty-four year old Caylor, having once written titillating romances under a pseudonym, now pens inspirational novels. When they form a professional alliance and Caylor's manuscript is paired with Dylan's proposed sketches for its book cover, suspicions arise. Can Dylan and Caylor discover the true art of romance while hiding secrets from their past?

    Caylor Evans has a bad history when it comes to men, so she has devoted herself to her teaching and writing careers. Enter struggling artist Dylan Bradley who has moved back to Nashville after a bad relationship breakup and being fired from his job. Neither seems to be ready to be involved in a new relationship, but never underestimate a grandmother's meddling.

    Right up front I'm going to say this story was really not my cup of tea. I liked the first book much better. This book seemed to place too much of the storyline along Caylor's academic career and Dylan backstory.

    The scenes between Caylor and Dylan fell flat in to many places and there was not as much private interaction between the two as I would have liked. I couldn't find any romantic spark between them and their scenes always seemed to have other people in them. I just saw them as good friends rather than a couple.

    I did liked the fact that as very young adults Caylor was once a secular romance writer writing steamy romance novels and that Dylan once used himself as a model for the cover of a couple of those books. I did like the fact that as they grew and matured they rergetted these choices yet neither were ready to admit their mistakes to anyone. That was something that they had to grow together as a couple and learn to trust each other.

    I didn't find God too much in this story. I think that's what bugged me the most. There were a couple of place that everyone went to church, but there was really no personal interaction with God.

    As usual Sassy, Caylor's grandmother, stole the book for me. She was smart and funny and energetic. I just loved all the scenes she was in. There were several places that I snickered and laughed. The part where Dylan finally stands up to his parents was really good and the scenes with Dylan and his brothers was wonderful.

    Would I recommend this book? If you want a very light read then yes I would.

    I like to read about honorable heroes, they can be human with failings, but still someone I would wish for my friends or family to marry. I wouldn't recommend Dylan, a guy who can be told to tattoo himself, live in an immoral relationship and change his main occupation, just to please a superior female. To imagine someone marrying a guy who is undergoing counselling for his every move doesn't bring "happy ever after" to mind ! I pity Caylor rather than approve. The Ransome series were better, but now I think I will avoid this author.
