Reading Challenge 2023


Mistakes? She’s made a few…

Dropped out of high school? Check. Ran away with loser boyfriend at age sixteen? Check. Fell for every line from every guy? Sadly, check. But now, Tess Papion has started over. Juggling multiple part-time jobs while finishing her college degree, she’s not letting anything get in her way. Especially not a sexy angel investor with “one-night disaster” written all over him.

Mason Coleman just inherited a 200-pound invalid Mastiff—and an intriguing, unusual, and thoroughly infuriating dog nanny who turns his life upside down the moment she steps through his front door. No matter how she makes him feel Mason doesn’t do commitment—so what happens when he falls for her? And worse, what happens when she wants nothing to do with him?
I've been enjoying finding these new authors. Some have worked others not so much. This time I was really happy with my pick. 

I really enjoyed Heartbreaker. Mason is just the best guy. How many brothers would take in your huge dog? One that's not really trained. I have to admit as a dog lover I didn't care for Mason's sister. All dogs should be trained. As I said I loved that he took in the dog and care about him even when he was a pain in the butt. 

Mason might be a shark when it comes to business but he really has a good heart. I understood his feelings about his job and his partners. He was going tired of being thought of as just a player when he's so much more. 

I also enjoyed Tess. But not as much and not always. I felt at times, a lot of times she spent way too much time in her head. She was so busy trying to stand on her own that she wasn't sharing life with anyone. Not even her best friend. She thought so little of herself that she ended up wanting no one to help her and see her only as someone who stood on her own, or alone which was more like it. 

Because of her issues, she was very unfair to Mason and he put way more work into their relationship than she did. As much as I liked her and understood why she acted the way she did I wanted better for him. 

Even with the issues I had with Tess, I liked them together when she worked on them. They just work. The flow between them is easy and relaxed. When she also gives of herself the book is better. I'm not saying that her issues aren't or shouldn't be part of the book they just seemed to sometimes take over the romance. I did enjoy the story enough that I am looking forward to reading the next book.
