Make Me by Tessa Bailey 99 cents!
Make Me: A Broke and Beautiful Novel - Tessa Bailey

Construction worker Russell Hart has been head-over-work boots for Abby Sullivan since the moment he laid eyes on her. But he knows a classy, uptown virgin like her could never be truly happy with a rough, blue-collar guy like him. If only she'd stop treating him like her personal hero—a role he craves more than oxygen—maybe he could accept it.

 

With the future of her family's hedge fund on her shoulders, Abby barely has time to sleep, let alone find love. And her best friend Russell acting like a sexy, overprotective hulk any time their Super Group goes out in public definitely isn't helping her single status. But after a near-tragedy lands Russell in her bed for the night, Abby's suddenly fantasizing about what he looks like shirtless. Chest hair and tattoos—who knew?

 

As Russell struggles to keep Abby at a safe distance, she begins to see through his tough-talking exterior—and acknowledge her own feelings. Now she's ready to turn the friend-zone into foreplay…and make him lose control.

Flat Broke with Two Goats
Flat Broke with Two Goats: A Memoir of Appalachia - Jennifer McGaha

This book is about a family who lived way outside of their means and when the recession hit lost their home. If you want a book with a financial plan on how to deal with the fact that they had a ton of debt and hadn't paid their taxes in years this isn't that book. The author does acknowledge the fact that they messed up, she left all things financial to her husband (I died reading this) and they were living beyond their means. The way that she explains how they got into this situation was really understandable, irresponsible but understandable. After this initial explanation it does turn into a bit of a poor me fest with Jennifer going on a bit of journey of self discovery. To be fair she did have a string of personal loss at the same time they were going through foreclosure. The last chunk of the book goes over the families move into a cabin in the woods, getting chickens and goats and basically the struggles of two non farming people trying to farm. A lot of people took issue with people who were that broke spending as much as they did on farming when they didn't know much about what they were doing. I get it but it didn't bother me.

 

Overall this book was very readable, and I was curious about what was going to happen next but it wasn't the most amazing thing I've ever read. I'd be interested to read more from McGaha to see how I feel about her writing outside of a memoir since I feel like those can, in some cases, be a little hard use as a judgement on rather or not I like an author.

In some ways what Hillbilly Elegy should have been
Flat Broke with Two Goats: A Memoir of Appalachia - Jennifer McGaha

My Book Box selection Jan 2018.

Honesty, I would not have picked up this book on my own, but I am so glad that My Book Box chose it. Funny, brutally, honest, and wonderful. For the record, the back of the book is slightly misleading as Merle is not the first goat.

Mystery at Dead Broke Ranch (Texas Rangers, Men Who Wear the Star Book 1) - Anne Greene

Mystery at Dead Broke Ranch by Anne Greene
Have read other works by the author and have enjoyed the reads.
This one starts out with Ashley, a special ed therapist and she needs a man. She is strong and lives on the ranch with Zach her brother in a wheelchair.
The job is still available: work at the ranch and the man riding up on the motorcycle wants it, Stone Hunter. He's done all kinds of jobs, interesting hearing about them all throughout the book.
She needed him to work because if they didn't have ramps for Zach and other things he'd go back to foster homes. They still have not solved the murder of her grandfather... She just wants a Christian man.
Her twin sisters are moving in and one is to be married at Christmas. Love the work she does with the horses for handicap kids.
Stone just wants to find what he left behind and get out of there...
Past events are brought forward and she recalls why Zach is confined to the chair.
He tells the family the truth then he has to leave and he hopes to clear his past before returning... So many leads and clues as to who killed her grandfather...
There is so much more to learn about the characters and their careers, can't wait to read more about them. Handful of characters but easy to keep them straight.
Lots of action and more mystery and the authors other works are highlighted at the end.
I was given the book by the author via Book Fun (The Book Club Network) and this is my honest review
