Lyric and Lingerie (Fort Worth Wranglers #1)
TeriLyn's review: **Lyric and Lingerie generously provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.**
I had so much fun reading Lyric and Lingerie. Coming off a couple heavier stories this light, rom-com, contemporary romance really entertained me. I laughed and swooned alike for a really great reading experience. Without ever diving deeply into heaviness or angst the story, told in the 3rd person POV, reads quite fast and easy.
Hero and heroine, Heath and Lyric, are two seriously funny people. They're full of puns, sharp wit, and so openly forthcoming truly endearing themselves to readers. After not seeing each other for twelve years the two randomly end up on the same airplane after a seriously absurd but laughable crisis-upon-crisis Lyric is in the midst of having. Their antics are zany, goofy, and wild as the story breaches over the top territory but never falling over the edge because you quickly realize how over the top just fits these characters so perfectly. The genuine honesty of each character coupled with the writing makes it refreshing and fun rather than ridiculous. The hero is hot, charming, smart and although he provides a couple of cheesy moments he's so sweet and lovable you'll easily forgive him. His quick reminders of why he adored Lyric so many years ago resurface and enable you to share in the adoration. And Lyric. Quirky, goofy, sweet, do-anything-for-anybody Lyric gives you so much to admire. With their references to football and astrophysics proving they're completely different yet showing us how well match they are because they understand each other, these two give good romance. The secondary characters help provide the arcs for the plot and leave you wanting some stories from them as well.
Fun. That's the bottom line. As romance readers we often delve into darker, angsty themes. For me personally, it's entertaining and a nice change to find something that just makes you laugh and smile. Tracy Wolff and Katie Graykowski through their lovely, romantic, tandem writing (you couldn't tell it was two different writers) charm romance readers quickly and painlessly through Heath and Lyric's outrageously adorable love story in Lyric and Lingerie. A must read for rom-com lovers.
About the Authors
Tracy Wolff collects books, English degrees and lipsticks and has been known to forget where—and sometimes who—she is when immersed in a great novel. At six she wrote her first short story—something with a rainbow and a prince—and at seven she forayed into the wonderful world of girls lit with her first Judy Blume novel. By ten she’d read everything in the young adult and classics sections of her local bookstore, so in desperation her mom started her on romance novels. And from the first page of the first book, Tracy knew she’d found her life-long love. Now an English professor at her local community college, she writes romances that run the gamut from contemporary to paranormal to erotic suspense.
And for all of those who want the unedited version:
Tracy Wolff lives with four men, teaches writing to local college students and spends as much time as she can manage immersed in worlds of her own creation. Married to the alpha hero of her dreams for twelve years, she is the mother of three young sons who spend most of their time trying to make her as crazy as possible.
