REVIEW: Screwdrivered by Alice Clayton

SCREWDRIVERED by Alice Clayton

 By day, Viv Franklin is a tough-as-nails software engineer who designs programs and loves hospital corners. By night, Vivian’s a secret romance-novel junkie who longs for a knight in shining armor, or a cowboy on a wild stallion, or a strapping firefighter to sweep her off her feet. And she gets to wear the bodice—don’t forget the bodice.

When a phone call brings news that she’s inherited a beautiful old home in Mendocino, California from a long-forgotten aunt, she moves her entire life across the country to embark on what she sees as a great, romance-novel-worthy adventure. But romance novels always have a twist, don’t they?

There’s a cowboy, one that ignites her loins. Because Cowboy Hank is totally loin-ignition worthy. But there’s also a librarian, Clark Barrow. And he calls her Vivian. Can tweed jackets and elbow patches compete with chaps and spurs? You bet your sweet cow pie.

In Screwdrivered, Alice Clayton pits Superman against Clark in a hilarious and hot battle that delights a swooning Viv/Vivian. Also within this book, an answer to the question of the ages: Why ride a cowboy when you can ride a librarian?

I Freaking love Alice Clayton!!

She totally has won me over since the FanFiction days of Redhead girl!

Wow!!  I just love me a funny, witty, upfront bad ass tattooed chick that is Viv (Vivian).  Her character had me rolling in laughter with her smart ass mouth and love for romance novels.

I want a house overlooking the ocean like Viv!  I can totally picture it now:

Alice Clayton sets up the scenes so perfectly, I felt like I was in the house with Viv the whole time as she tells us her fun story of how she learns to cope with taking over her dead aunt's house and making life changing decisions that will make up her future.

Does Viv end up with a cowboy or a historical librarian? 

Can't she have both?  You will have to read to find out who she picks.

This book definitely had me cracking up & also had me squirming in my seat with all the hotness that is classic Alice Clayton writing.

I am looking forward to the next book in this series!
