Last week on The Bachelorette, Luke S and Luke P fought about just everything. Luke S accused Luke P of telling Hannah lies about him, Luke P said Luke S was there for the wrong reasons, and Hannah got dragged into the middle of it. It was like grade school level whining and bickering. By the end of the episode everyone wanted both Lukes to go home. Instead Hannah asked to speak to them alone. If you’re wondering how I’m working up the fortitude to deal with tonight’s manufactured drama, the answer is this: That’s almost a half bottle of $6.99 Sauvignon Blanc and the water I’m going to need after. Not pictured: aspirin, more water, a morning full of regret. Anyway, let’s jump into it. Hannah asks both Lukes to talk to each other in front of her, instead of all of the back and forth. They bicker at each other and Hannah eventually just gets up and leaves. Chris Harrison gathers all of the dudes and tells them that the night is over, and they are going straight to the Dreaded Rose Ceremony. “I know you guys don’t want hear anything from me right now…” Luke P begins. “We…

Amanda: Do you think Rebel Hard would work with this? I haven’t quite finished it yet, but I remember the hero early on in the book mentioning how his blue collarness made him stand out at the party where he meets Nayna. Sarah: Definitely. A | BN | K | AB One that is much older but immediately pops into my mind is Perfect ( A | BN | K | G | AB ) and definitely Paradise by Judith McNaught ( A | BN | K | G | AB ). Amanda: Start Me Up by Victoria Dahl ( A | BN | K | G | AB ), maybe? It’s been ages since I’ve read it. Mechanic heroine, architect hero. Sarah: Oh – the fourth wedding book by Nora Roberts. Parker and her mechanic Mal. Happy Ever After ( A | BN | K | G | AB ) – that’s it! What romances would you recommend for this pairing? Tell us in the comments below!

ParanormalRomance A C is a weird grade for a book that I read compulsively, especially since I remain very curious about the next one, but while the set up, the action, and the ensemble were a lot of fun to read, the more I thought about it, the more I found myself thinking, “But, wait…” I have a stack of “But, waits” regarding the character development and emotional pivots, and they began to accumulate from about the first third of the story. Molly is getting ready for Yet Another Dinner Party for her husband, Austin, an ambitious attorney at an Atlanta firm, when she discovers purple panties that aren’t hers wedged behind the bed. The discovery cracks Molly’s ability to maintain her facade that all is well in her marriage and in her life, and she thinks about all the things she has yet to do for this party, like prepare all the food, dress, and ensure the drinks are plentiful, all so Austin can level up at his firm while she does her work as a society wife supporting his professional efforts. Meanwhile, he’s been cheating…
