Book Excerpt: Lottie broke in. “So? What now? You know my secret identity and I know yours. Shall we just go our own ways—no harm, no foul?”
He considered that. “I’m not sure. I mean, what did Batman and Catwoman do when they discovered each other’s secret identities?”
Lottie wrinkled her nose. “Try to kill each other?”
“Um, you’re right. Bad example. So whaddya think we should do?” A few interesting ideas had already occurred to Roman, but, for the moment at least, he chose to keep those to himself. “Are you thinking of mutually assured destruction? You tell my secret, I tell yours?”
“I don’t know,” Lottie said, “I think we can do better than that.”
“Hmmm…” She was giving him a different look now—speculative, perhaps, even conspiratorial. “It depends.”
My review: This is a cute, clean, contemporary romance. I liked Roman, he's a country singer/movie star who's trying to do his best, but he's just getting burnt out on the life he's living. He's been on tour for awhile and it's time for a break. He ditches his manager and takes off into the middle of nowhere in New Mexico. All he wants is an amazing slice of pie, so he heads to the Kachina Cafe where he meets Lottie Beale.
I liked Lottie too. I thought it was kind of funny that Lottie knows just who Roman is, but pretends she doesn't. But Lottie also has a secret, she was a child television star and her family is made up of famous actors, she's been hiding out and running the cafe for awhile and no one has guessed her secret. The share a whirlwind adventure, but figure there's no way the two of them could find a way to be together. Or is there?
This book is part of a series, but it stands on it's own just fine. I thought that the plot was cute, but a little predictable. If you're looking for a cute, clean, quick read to read during your down time, this book will work quite nicely!
I was sent an e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
