Review: Rough Around the Edges Meets Refined

Rough Around the Edges Meets Refined
Rough Around the Edges Meets Refined by Rachael Anderson

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Noah Mackie's life is finally back on track. He's getting the hang of this single father thing and he has a great support system with his sister living next door and the neighbors that have become like family. But when his job falls through, 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.

Another winner by Rachael Anderson! I loved this book. Noah and Cassie are both reluctant to start a new relationship – Noah can’t imagine falling in love again after the death of his beloved wife and Cassie is struggling to find herself after the death of her abusive husband. With the help of matchmaking family and friends, Noah and Cassie meet and despite their fears and concerns they open up their hearts to a second chance at love and happiness.

There was so much to this story that drew me in and kept me reading. The whole favorite ice cream question/personality analysis was funny. I loved the interaction between Noah and Cassie. The chemistry between the two was sweet and romantic. I loved Noah’s connection with his two very different girls. The vacuum trick to get the girls’ hair in a ponytail was so funny but gross too! Does he not know what gets sucked up into those things?! LOL And I was so happy that throughout the book and with Noah’s encouragement, Cassie reaches out to her own family that she had been alienated from because of her late husband.

A sweet clean romance that will leave a smile on your face. I would definitely recommend this book to my family and friends.
