Where to Buy*:
The beginning to Winning Her Over was fun and a bit flirty (Brenna’s a massage therapist and Cal was her client that night as he was in the city for business). I liked Rowan’s writing style and found it easy to relax and enjoy the story.
It’s odd, but I actually found the two “solo” sex scenes sexier than the actual sex scenes. The first was Brenna getting herself off at home shortly after they met, the second was a phone sex scene later in their relationship. I can’t even pinpoint what it was about those scenes that I liked more than their other times together, but there you go. It’s not that the sex scenes were done poorly or anything.
I liked Brenna and Cal’s friends-with-benefits relationship turning into something more and thought Rowan did a good job with it. Of course they hit a little bump in the road when they both realize (even if they won’t yet admit it) that they want more from their relationship. However, Cal works to get back into Brenna’s life, and heart, through honest words and thoughtful gifts, which I thought was sweet.
All in all, this was truly a lovely read. There’s nothing heavy in it, but that’s not a bad thing; sometimes a lighter read is just what the reader needs, and that was definitely the case for me. I certainly liked Rowan’s writing enough to check back for future releases from her.
