Tamara Morgan’s fun, contemporary romance If I Stay is out this week and we’re hosting the blog tour leg today. At the bottom of the post will be a link to a rafflecopter giveaway so make sure to enter that!
Ryan Lucas would rather be anywhere but Ransom Creek, Connecticut. After losing his high-adrenaline career as a Hollywood stunt driver, he’s had to tuck his tail between his legs and take up employment as a chauffeur for the Montgomerys, a wealthy hotelier family.
Amy Sanders has returned home to Ransom Creek to take over her mother’s former position as nanny to the Montgomerys—bringing her close to dashing Jake Montgomery once again. She grew up with a major crush on Jake, and it’s not easy to leave those feelings behind, even though her friendship with the hard-edged family chauffeur, Ryan, has a sizzling undercurrent of undeniable attraction.
Amy’s determined to prove to Ryan that life at Montgomery Manor isn’t all bad, but each time they draw closer Jake swoops in. Amy is torn between two men—and two worlds. And Ryan is rapidly coming to learn that if he wants to make Amy his, he’ll have to prove to her that life downstairs can be everything they both want.
This is a pretty light-hearted romance which I always appreciate. There is a very obvious love triangle set up here that is very quickly dismantled which both surprised me and made me very happy as I’m not a big fan of them because they’re used so much. I really liked the use of this triangle here because it was for a very good reason – it brought Amy and Ryan closer together and brought about the mystery of the book.
I also really love that there is more than just a romance in this book – there’s the romance, comedy, and a bit of a mystery too. All of that together creates a fun atmosphere to the entire thing. There is both minor and major conflicts with the characters and I really enjoyed the secondary characters too. I can’t wait to read their books as well.
Tamara Morgan’s Getting Physical series is great and really hilarious – below is a giveaway for a chance to win those books!
