Working It Out

Why did I pick this book: I participated in the blog tour hosted by I Am A Reader, Not a Writer. (I received a copy of this book for review purposes.)
Did I enjoy this book: I did enjoy this book. It was a sweet love story that kept me reading until the end.
Grace is a determined, hardworking woman who has feelings of guilt that aren’t revealed immediately in the book. She is afraid of not feeling guilty anymore. Grace is also rather stubborn. She was a great character. The excerpt below has one of my favorite scenes with Grace and lines from her. Seth is an adventurous ass for the most part. He is sweet, kind, smart. Seth is a good counter to Grace, a counter that she needs. The two of them have a sweet heat between them. Their attraction to each other is apparent but their stubbornness doesn’t help.
The supporting cast is wonderful. Seth’s friends are awesome, absolutely awesome. Any group of guys that would take on wheelchair basketball for the reasons that they did are pretty cool. Lanna turned out to be much stronger than I had originally thought she was. Alec needed to break out of his shell, and his home. I really enjoyed his transformation.
Working It Out is a bit on the predictable side — it ended how I had thought it would and how I had wanted it to — but it was predictable in a good way. This book left me with giggling because I had that giddy/happy feeling at the end.
Would I recommend it: I would recommend this book. It was a good chick lit read.
Will I read it again: I will not.
About the book – from Goodreads: A chance encounter . . .
Grace Warren’s life is safe and predictable—exactly the way she likes it. But when she gets roped into going to an auction to help out a friend, everything changes. She meets Seth Tuttle—a guy who unexpectedly kisses her then disappears, leaving her flustered and upset. If she never sees him again, it will be too soon.
A chance for love . . .
Weeks later, when Seth limps into Grace’s rehab clinic post surgery, he’s every bit as frustrating and annoying as she remembered. Yet there’s something about him that makes her second-guess her carefully placed boundaries even though he’s everything she’s sure she doesn’t want in a man. But maybe Seth is exactly what Grace has needed all along—assuming she’s willing to risk safe and predictable for a chance at love.
Please enjoy the following excerpt from Working It Out.
“No, I’m sure he’d rather wait here.” Seth turned his attention to Grace and smiled. “So, you’re Grace Warren. Dr. Ross tells me you’re the best PT in the Seattle area, which I’m hoping is true. I want my knee back as soon as possible and need a PT who can bring it.”
About the author: Rachael Anderson is the author of five novels (Working It Out, The Reluctant Bachelorette, Minor Adjustments, Luck of the Draw, and Divinely Designed) and two novellas (Twist of Fate, from the All I Want anthology and The Meltdown Match from The Timeless Romance Anthology: Summer Wedding Collection). She’s the mother of four and is pretty good at breaking up fights, or at least sending guilty parties to their rooms. She can’t sing, doesn’t dance, and despises tragedies. But she recently figured out how yeast works and can now make homemade bread, which she is really good at eating.
