Working It Out by Rachael Anderson Blog Tour & Review
Working It Out
A chance encounter . . .
Grace Warren’s life is safe and predictable—exactly the way she likes it. But when she gets roped into going to an auction to help out a friend, everything changes. She meets Seth Tuttle—a guy who unexpectedly kisses her then disappears, leaving her flustered and upset. If she never sees him again, it will be too soon.
A chance for love . . .
Weeks later, when Seth limps into Grace’s rehab clinic post surgery, she immediately recognizes him. Unfortunately, he’s every bit as frustrating and annoying as she remembered. Yet there’s something about him that makes her second-guess her carefully placed boundaries even though he’s everything she’s sure she doesn’t want in a man. But maybe Seth is exactly what Grace has needed all along—assuming she’s willing to risk safe and predictable for a chance at love.
Rachael Anderson is the author of four books: Divinely Designed, Luck of the Draw, Minor Adjustments, and The Reluctant Bachelorette. She’s the mother of four and is pretty good at breaking up fights, or at least sending guilty parties to their rooms. She can’t sing, doesn’t dance, and despises tragedies. But she recently figured out how yeast works and can now make homemade bread, which she is really good at eating.
My Review: Working it Out by Rachael Anderson
Working it Out was fun to read. It had some nice messages in it too. I like the characters and understand their motives. I have to admit I am more on Grace's side, then over Seth's side when it comes to the extreme sports.
At times it is funny, so touching and then maddening at all the risks Seth takes. It is a clean read. I read it in one easy session.
Seth has money and wants to help his late friend's sister Lanna with his money for her afterschool program. Lanna does not want his money but offers him to be one of the bachelors . Seth declines.
Seth shows up in sweats at the auction even though its a black tie affair. He bids on the last man against Grace. He ends up paying 20,000 dollars for a date with Cameron. Seth thinks he is smart to force Lana to take his money. He had outbid Grace who was their to bid on her co-worker Cameron at his request.
Seth kisses Grace at the auction to prove he is not gay and only wanted to help support the charity.
Seth is into extreme sports big time until he injures himself and ends up in physical therapy with Grace and he does not even recognize Grace at first.
Grace's brother Alex is in a wheelchair after a accident when they were in high school skiing. Grace blames herself and that's why she is a physical trainer.
Grace teaches Seth that programs need money but they also need people to be involved and maybe if he helped volunteer his time Lana would let him help her. Also she would stop being mad at him. Once Seth starts getting involved he sees how he can help make a difference in lives.
Seth helps Alex learn to enjoy sports again also helps Grace to relax and have fun trying things.
I really like the characters and how they were changing for each other. They were all growing. I was rooting for them to workout their differences. I cared about them. While the characters did change they were believable changes.
This is I believe my first book I have read of Rachael's and I plan to read more of her work in fact I already have it on my kindle waiting for me.
I was given this ebook to read and in exchange asked to give honest review and be part of Working It Out blog tour.
