Olivia Bishop is no fun. That's what her ex-husband said. And that's what her smart bob and glasses imply. So with her trademark determination, Olivia sets out to remake her life. She's going to spend time with her girlfriends and not throw it all away for some man. But when an outing with her book club leads her to a brewery taproom, the dark-haired beauty realizes that trouble—in the form of sexy Jamie Donovan—may be too tempting to avoid.

Jamie Donovan doesn't mean to be bad. Sure, the wild streak in his wicked green eyes has lured the ladies before. Now it's time to grow up. He's even ready for a serious romance. But how can that be when Olivia, the only right woman he has ever met, already has him pegged as wrong?
This time around I enjoyed Jamie so much more than last. But with that comes me disliking Eric. Jamie came across as irresponsible in the last installment, but in his effort to change, his brother Eric refused to let go of the past.

Olivia and Jamie’s relationship started out as “fun,” but quickly became so much more. With her marriage ending because of her husband’s infidelity, serious is not what she’s looking for.

These two had great chemistry together. They were great apart as well. Olivia and her book club members are a perfect example of that. They provided me with some great entertainment.

Jamie managed a complete 180 in this novel. I got to see a whole new side of Jamie I didn’t know existed. And I ha e to say, I loved it.

This was definitely my favorite work by Dahl. As for the whole brother v brother issue, I'm interested to see what you think of Real Men Will. Lots more sibling drama! But yes, it does seem like you can't like one of them without being seriously annoyed by the other.
