“Oh, I’m sorry. Did you say you were happy? LOLOLOLOL!” ~ Life
Ember Hastings never thought she’d be dragged away from White Timber and everything she loved, thrust in the middle of a big city she hated, or have her husband of nine years say, “I can’t do this anymore,” all within the span of three months, yet here she is.
She misses her family, she misses the farm, and she misses having a backbone and caring whether or not the stain on her shirt is chocolate or shit. She works from home doing transcription. Does she really need to shower or leave the house?
Baker Matthews has been bringing everyone down lately with his grouchy attitude. His job is stressful, and sometimes depressing, but he wouldn’t change anything about it. When a glitch with the transcription company he’s using mistakenly sends him notes he wasn’t supposed to see, Baker finds himself laughing out loud for the first time in months.
He’s never met a woman who says whatever she’s thinking and doesn’t fawn all over him when she finds out what he does for a living. Until Ember Hastings comes barreling into his life, calling him Shit Mouth and asking if he has any balls.
But she wants to keep this professional. She made him pinky swear, and you don’t mess around with pinky swears. Baker will have to get creative if he wants to prove to Ember that he’s just her type.

Ummm... hello? Is anyone there? This book. I just don't know what to say. It's most definitely another winner from Sivec. I am not sure what to say that I haven't said before.
The banter between these characters is life! I laughed so hard every single time. They are snarky, confident, entertaining. A troop of kick-butt characters who entertained me from start to finish.
As in the past, Sivec leaves us with reader's blue balls. Dragging out the inevitable until the reader is ready to combust from the sexual tension. I feel like this is her new thing. She loves to torture her readers to the point they are begging for the sexual relief of her characters just as much as they are.
I swear, after each of Sivec's books, I am left obsessing over something. This time it's a pet. I want that pet so very badly thanks to Sivec's telling of what a wonderful pet it would be to have. The only thing is, I need to move to another state to legally own one. Thanks Sivec. Thanks a lot!
Personally, I wanted a little more from the resolution in this book. I wanted a little more torture and some more family from White Timber, but I was still happy with what I got. This book is going to be another hit people will be quoting for a while.
