"OMG!! I have never laughed so hard one second and been on the edge of my seat the next, with any other book!" - Fun Under The Covers

Jane West's life is perfectly average. Perfectly boring. Until Ty Strickland—Grade-A, smoking hot firefighter—moves in down the street.

Then things get a little exciting, and not in the good, panty-melting sort of way. Not only does someone want her dead (seriously), she has to wrangle her out-of-control desires where the new neighbor is concerned, and convince her boss at the small town's only adult toy store—who meddles in Jane's love life—to leave the new hose-wielding hottie off her matchmaking radar.

But it's not all chaos and pancakes. There's Ty. And his smoking hot body. Smoking hot kisses. He's burning the walls around her heart to nothing but ash. And she just might be falling in love...if she can stay alive long enough.

The first book in Vanessa Vale's new Small Town Romance series, where the men in Montana aren't just hot, they set things on fire.

If you've read books by this author before, you know that she's known for certain types of books. Menage, Western theme, with a little BDSM thrown in for good measure. This is not one of those books! Totally different from the ones I've read before (granted, I've not read them all, but I've loved the ones I have read!), this book is about a small town, a firefighter, a widow, and a couple of garden gnomes. (Yes, you read that right. Gnomes.) Jane is just a girl, living in a small town. She has two sons, is widowed, and works in an "Adult" store. Her relationship with her husband wasn't really great. Matter of fact, it was pretty bad. But now, despite being alone to raise her boys, she seems to be pretty happy with her life. Thinks are pretty easy, going along smoothly, until one day some really strange things start happening..... Ty is former military, and has recently moved to the neighborhood to join the fire department. He is a typical male, doesn't believe that relationships are for him. But even he can deny the instant attraction for Jane. She just seems to attract trouble. And he isn't sure that there is room for that in his life. This book is very different from other books by this author. But it is also very similar, in that there were plenty of laughs, and lots of mischief, mayhem, and adventure to keep the story moving. This was a fun beginning to what promises to be a must read series, from an author that always delivers a great book!

FROM YARD SALE TO MISHAPS I always enjoy a new series, and Small Town Romance starts off as a page-turner. The one thing that makes this story so different than most stories by Vanessa Vale is this is not a ménage story. What you will get is plenty of action and adventure, mystery and suspense, and a great cast of characters that will take you on a roller-coaster ride. Jane West is a widow and mother to two young sons, Zach and Bobby. Her husband was a cheater, but before their divorce was final, he died from a blood clot. Jane works with her mother-in-law, Goldie running a sex shop called Goldilocks. The patience she has with explaining sex toys to customers is entertaining, and her demonstration at a home sex toy party is a bonus too. New to Bozeman, Ty Strickland, works with the fire department and before that was in the military with two tours to the Gulf. His parents live a few hours away. The plot will have Ty coming into Goldilocks and meeting Jane, but it was for work, not as a customer. It soon is made apparent that they are also neighbors, and he has befriended her two sons. The story will revolve around a Saturday morning trip to a yard sale where each of the boys buys a yard gnome with the money from Jane. Strange things start happening days after the yard sale, with evidence that someone has been lurking in her yard, attempted theft of the gnomes from the porch, and multiple occurrences. For a once quiet lifestyle, Jane will become embroiled in strange events, and this widowed mother of two will now have two men vying for her attention. “The past few days had been—action packed. Exciting. Thrilling.” The relationship between Ty and Jane is mutual but complicated. Jane hasn’t dated even though Nate has been dead for nearly five years. Ty has commitment issues that deal with losing those close to him. So where does that leave them when there is definitely a chemistry between them? Then add in Goldie who does some crazy thing trying to push these two together. “Look, I’m more than okay with sex. That’s adventure, not excitement. A relationship, not happening. That’s more than I can handle right now. Condoms are for sex. A relationship is when you don’t use them.”--Ty The story will take on life and death situations, a man who makes demands that leaves Jane uneasy, a thief, and plenty of unanswered questions. Just when things seem to be going well for Jane and Ty, something new will set them back. "Who would have imagined my entire life would be turned upside down by two garden gnomes?”

I love a good small town romance story and I really enjoyed this one. Jane and her kids had me laughing a lot throughout the book. When reading this one I couldn't believe everything happened to Jane. This one is light and fun, but it also has some intense suspenseful moments that had me on the edge of my seat. The only thing that I wish was that we got Ty'a point of view. It would helped me with his character if I could have gotten into his head a bit. Over all it's a good book that will have you laughing one moment and gasping the next. I'm looking forward to more from this series.
