Dirty and fun with terrific characters!
I love Mimi Jean books and this one was no different. The main character, Camila was the perfect blend of funny, kooky and a dash of crazy. Camila is best friends with Giselle from the book My Pen Is Huge. They call Gisselle’s guy Mr. Big Pen (a.k.a. Leland) and his best friend is a cowboy named Jed. Jed was interested in Camila a while back but she turned him down and called him some names like trailer trash in order to make him angry and not be tempted by him.
That was prior to her moving away and starting work at a vineyard in California. Camila has very strict religeous parents who attend a church with ways that are a bit backward and she knew they would never approve of an outsider, especially one like Jed. Jed was a military sniper, has tattoos, doesn’t care what other people think and doesn’t go to church. This book isn’t religious in nature, just the parents of Camila are.
Camila’s parents church has a tradition of arranged marriages. They believe that selecting a compatible guy of their religion will lead to a long and happy marriage and love or lust isn’t something to build a relationship on. They think that religion and compatibility will turn into love once marriage occurs. Camila wants to marry for love, but knows that if she does, she will lose her parents forever. She had a great and loving upbringing so doesn’t want to lose them.
Jed comes back into the picture at the dinner before Giselle and Leland’s wedding. When an escaped killer is holding a gun on Gisselle and Camila, Jed saves them. He then signs on to help out at the ranch/winery where Camila is an accountant. Camilla is terrific, especially due to her conservative upbringing. At some point she rebelled by learning dirty words and now has a tourette’s like habit of saying every filthy word that comes into her head when she is nervous. It is both cute and hilarious.
Camila keeps either putting her foot in her mouth or making mistakes when it comes to Jed and it is fun to read. I had a great time with this book and these characters and it makes me want to read more. I truly enjoyed everything about this book and now I want to go back and pick up the books in this series that I hadn’t yet read.
