Love for Beginners by Sally Clements

Love for Beginners: An Under the Hood Novella (Entangled Bliss) - Sally Clements



Mechanic Melody Swan is looking for a man who can share her hopes and dreams, but she swore she would never lose herself to passion. When sexy Heath Starr agrees to temporarily sub in the Under the Hood garage for his sister, Mel sees the perfect opportunity to enjoy being with a man without becoming attached.

Heath came to Meadowsweet to photograph nature, not find a hookup, especially since his last relationship ended in disaster. He vowed he’d never break another woman’s heart, and in turn, protect his own. Still, when Mel offers to serve as his outdoor guide, he can’t refuse.

Mel may say she’s only looking for right now, but her body is speaking a whole different language. And Heath’s viewfinder is drawn to her time and again. When the two find themselves isolated in a rustic cabin, they could both break their promises if they aren’t careful…



My thoughts:



Careful this might have a few spoilers

Hmm not sure about this book, it was not terrible but not great either.

The first few pages were kind of confusing to start off. I also thought the title somewhat reminded me of a self-help kind of book.

 I thought the main character Mel was kind of weird, she was not looking for a relationship and if she wanted one that one without sex… okayyyyy. But most men didn't go for that… (Wonder why). So than she meets Heath and she tells him that , and he suggest , that she should learn how to tolerate a man’s touch and he is more than willing to help her with that.  Who needs to learn to tolerate anybody’s touch was my thought about that . But then she completely changes and all she can think about is having Sex with Heath, who doesn't want more than friendship not even a one night stand, even though he is known as the “ladyslayer” ……

So with all this it was a bit weird and confusing…..  But I’m sure some people might like it.

It is a short story so that was a bonus as it can be read fast.  I recommend it to all romance and contemporary romance fans


I give it 2 ½ ★
