Rough Around The Edges Meets Refined by Rachael Anderson {Book Review, Book Promo & Giveaway}

Rough Around the EdgesAround the Edges Meets Refined (Meet Your Match #2) by Rachael Anderson For Noah Mackie, life is finally back on track. He has a great support system, a promised promotion is on its way, and he's finally getting the hang of this single father thing. But when the job falls through and his neighbor's matchmaking efforts become more aggressive, Noah is in for yet another unwanted detour. With his career and two spirited daughters to worry about, he doesn't have time for dating—especially not someone like Cassie Ellis, his girls' beautiful and sophisticated dance instructor, who is about as open and approachable as a brick wall. Rough around the Edges Meets Refined is about two people who think they know exactly what they want but who have no idea what they really need. It's about learning that people aren't always what they seem and that sometimes life’s detours take you exactly where you need to go.

I devoured this book page by page. I could not find it in me to put in down,even when sleep was a necessity, I still opted for more of Cassie and Noah. 

Noah lost his wife awhile ago and has pretty much made his two daughters his whole world since then. He's had no interest in dating what so ever but then his friend Becky who loves to meddle in his life and help out, makes him pick his daughters up from dance and meet the new dance teacher. Noah is at first turned off by Cassie, he can't see anything they have in common and she seems extremely standoffish which is definitely NOT what he is looking for. 

He had a laid-back manner about him that made it seem like nothing ever got to him, and yet Cassie didn't trust it. People weren't always what they seemed She'd learned that one the hard way. 

Cassie teaches dance and also lost her husband just recently but her situation is very much different from Noah's loss. Cassie feels free for the first time in her life from her judgmental, OCD and controlling husband. She gave up everything for him. The things she loved including her whole family weren't good enough for him so Cassie just let them go thinking that her husband was amazing, sweet and everything he claimed to be when he was courting her. Once they were married, things sure did change. Cassie swears that she will never let someone else railroad her again or fall in love again. Then she meets Noah and he seems to be amazing and real, perfect in almost every way which scares her even more. Noah grows closer to her and Cassie pulls away. When something life changing changes for Cassie, will Noah be able to keep her or will he lose yet another love in his life? 

It was that life happened. Whether good, whether bad, whether he made it happen or whether it happened all on its own, it just happened. And even though it may not seem okay at the time, eventually the pain subsided, the kinks got worked out, and weak people became a little stronger. Eventually. 

Such a beautiful romance, it was sweet, innocent and totaling clean. I just love a sweet love story where you know the characters are meant to be. It warmed my heart and was a perfect start to my December reading month. 

Pain was like a sledgehammer. It was a destroyer. With one or two hard strokes, it could tear apart something whole and turn it into ugly chunks and pieces. 
I would suggest you pick this book up and include it in your cozy fireplace reads.
