For Noah Mackie, life is finally back on track. He has a great support system, a promised promotion is on its way, and he's finally getting the hang of this single father thing. But when the job falls through and his neighbor's matchmaking efforts become more aggressive, Noah is in for yet another unwanted detour. With his career and two spirited daughters to worry about, he doesn't have time for dating—especially not someone like Cassie Ellis, his girls' beautiful and sophisticated dance instructor, who is about as open and approachable as a brick wall.
Rough around the Edges Meets Refined is about two people who think they know exactly what they want but who have no idea what they really need. It's about learning that people aren't always what they seem and that sometimes life’s detours take you exactly where you need to go.
I keep waiting to read something from Rachael Anderson that I don't like. I mean, not everything can be a winner, right? Well, apparently they can, because Rough Around the Edges Meets Refined was a great read. It started in places I wasn't expecting, it dealt with heavy hard issues in an unheavy but still gut wrenching way.
This cast of characters are just great people. I loved the support system they all had going on. It made me want to be apart of this group, and just hang out with them to watch a game or something. I got excited for the changes that were going to take part in their lives. Plus, Noah was a great male lead. I really enjoyed his humor.
So...the cons of the book. Umm...I didn't love Noah's name? I know it is a super popular name right now, and I know a number of people who have used it. It just reminds me of the biblical prophet. Which, hey, he would be a good person to be named after, but since that's all I could think of I just thought I would share that random tidbit of information with you :)
Rachael's books are books that I can read over and over again, and this one is no exception to that.
