Review: Cracklin Rosie by Lissa Matthews

Publisher: Samhain Publishing
ISBN: 978-1-60928-203-1
Genre: Contemporary/Erotic Romance, Red Hots
Format: eBook
Length: Category

A tool for every job. A belt for every occasion…

Blue Jeans and Hard Hats, Book 2

Food is Rosie’s life, and life is good. She loves it, makes it, serves it in her diner, writes about it in her blog, and she’s happy. At least until a storm puts a rather large tree limb through her roof, and a sex-in-a-tool-belt roofer on top of her cabin.

But that’s not where she wants him. No, she wants him behind her with a strip of leather in his hand. That’s what makes her edgy—vulnerability is not her style. Except the more prickly she gets with him, the more he turns on the charm.

Decker arrives in Blue Ridge, Georgia, with nothing on his mind but a job and some new scenery. His legendary patience is tested from the first moment he meets sharp-tongued Rosie. She’s got hips that sway, non-stop curves and a mouth that needs to be filled with things that are much sweeter than vinegar.

A few singe-worthy kisses, and Decker uncovers passions that will likely earn her every red stripe she’s begging for. And Rosie discovers Decker’s got a hunger burning deep inside to give her anything and everything she needs. Maybe even…forever.

Warning: Between the sheets of this book you’ll find a twist on a decadent southern dessert, sweet rose wine, picnic table sexiness, truck sex, a man who knows how to give a spanking and a woman who knows how to bend over a hot yummy lap.

I obtained the above information from Ms. Lissa's website!
And I was also given this book from the author to review for my honest thoughts! So here we go...

For those of you that know me... and those that don't this is my little statement about short books.... I do not judge short stories on the rush of their relationships, because they are just that - short stories. So, yes the relationships always could have been drawn out more, yea it seems like they fall in love to fast and of course the story could have been made longer... but it is a short story. So with that said.... here is my review...

Man oh man - where do I start. Okay, first I need to get the preliminaries out the way and tell you that this is book two on Ms. Lissa's hard hat and blue Jean series. As a reviewer, it is my job to tell you that you do have to read them in order. Ms Lissa does a marvelous job of giving us everything we need to know what is going on. However, as your friend it is my duty to shake the hell out of you, scream and shout at you until you break down and read Sweet Carolina. I mean really one word - Buck. Enugh said. Okay so I love, lust and am infatuated with the man. But damn, can u blame me. No if you knew him too, you wouldn't blame me. Okay, moving on - Buck has friends!!!! Omg!!!! Hell yeah!!

**evil wicked glean in the hussy's eyes**

Okay, moving on to Cracklin Rosie's story. Let me just jump on Decker. I mean, let me just jump right on in with Decker. The man is Sex On A Stick. He oozes sex like honey out he hive. Oh hell, one look or grin from this man will make your panties wet. I promise. Maybe I should say that he is Sex With A Tool Belt and he knows how to use it. And I promise you will be begging him to use it.

Okay, I'm not done gushing about Decker but you came here for a review and that is what I'm going to give to you.

Rosie lives in a very small community in Georgia. A town where everyone knows everyone. That's okay with Rosie, she loves her town and takes great pride in her surroundings. Rosie owns a diner smack dab in the middle of town. Now that truly is her pride and joy. Her parents gave it to her as a graduation present after she finished culinary school. She worked there practically all her life and came to love it. Her diner, her home - a little cottage not far from work, her haven. Everything is as it should be - perfect. Until a roof lands in her kitchen and she needs someone to repair it. Staying emotionally detached from anyone in her community, Rosie is disturbed by what they handyman is offering to fix.

Decker loves his job. Construction, workin with his hands. Watching the job form from ground up and seeing what his two hands created. He loves traveling wherever there is work. He loved to freedom. Until Buck called him for a favor... Caroline has a friend that needs her roof fixed. Simple enough right, then move on to the next job. Decker though settling down was not for him until he met Rosie. She had him erecting more than just her roof. Ha!!

Okay my warning right off the bat - if you want sweet, tender, soft love/romance... You may want to skip this one. However, if you want hot, hard, dirty, sexy as hell loving - then this is for you. Decker and Rosie are two explosive people alone, get them together and Omg watch the fireworks go off!! They are amazing together. Rosie has so many walls up, will she allow Decker to use his skills as a handyman to break them down? Decker has loved being the go with the flow person, living and loving for the moment; but what happens when his heart meets the ass of a lifetime?? You will have to read to know what that means, evil ~me, never!!!! Haa Haa!!!

Ms. Lissa did it again with another story that rocked my world. Staying true to the kinky side of life is always sexy, but the way Ms. Lissa give us the story always make me itch for the things that seem to run amuck in a hussy's mind! Smutty, sexy and hot as hell, this is one hot story!!
