An Irresistible Force by Rosanna Leo is an absolute delight and continues to be one of my fave, new series!
Rosanna Leo is one of my recent favourite romance authors. Her books feel real, honest but also completely adorable. I get whisked away from the craziness of our world and into a fictional universe that could easily be my own (I am Canadian, so the location isn’t too far off).
An Irresistible Force is the second book in the Handymen series. It’s a truly marvellous series that follows some Canadian handymen (shocker, I know) who have a home building/renovation show (think Property Brothers). I am a sucker for romances that remind me of Property Brothers, so this book series is perfect for me! Also, who doesn’t want to imagine sexy men building stuff and being all romantic? It’s great.
Anywho, time for the review:
This book brings Eli Zorn, one of the fantastic brothers who is a landscaper, into the lead. He mets Bernadette “Bernie” Nolan, who’s a bit eccentric (and becomes a monkey wrench in Eli’s plans) but is trying to protect the house and land the boys are working on. Peter Nolan, Bernie’s uncle and Eli’s mentor, is a giant in the landscaping business but it starting a wee bit of trouble for the both of them. These two tussle and tango up in Muskoka, Ontario in a fantastic romance that will remind you good things come to those who wait and life isn’t always what we expect it.
There’s so much emotion and feeling in this book but there’s also so much romance and comedy. It feels like the perfect mix for someone who wants to disappear into a book. We have sad moments, awkward confrontations, moments of fury, and some of the best romantic comedy I’ve seen in a long time all tied up in this book. There’s also some of the best quotes I’ve ever seen, such as “Saved by the chicken dance!”.
The ending will make your heart swell, especially if you like HEA romances. This series is all around great and I highly recommend it to romantic comedy fans.
Five out of five stars.
