How do you know whether you can trust someone? Maggie Washington is used to relying on herself. Growing up in Iowa, her wild curls and parents who dumped her on her grandmother made it so she's never fit in. Skeptical of other people's motives, she's always been the fling or the friend. Looking to define her life after college, she's thrilled when she scores a choice summer job working in Yosemite National Park restoring habitat. Court Thompson is a gorgeous (and bearded) forest ranger with a love-em and leave-em reputation. When he shows interest in her, she’s torn. Even though she's flattered by his attention, she doubts his sincerity—and her ability to get out of the friend-zone. Will Court be able to coax Maggie into trusting him that he's for real? Or after the summer of s'mores and skinny dipping, will he let her down like everybody else?
I am not even going to try to lie, I signed up for this one only because of the title. I mean come on Lumbersexual? You know that this book whore would be curious and had to check this one out. So I did and while I didn’t love it I liked it a lot and thought it was cute, funny, at times sexy, and a pretty quick novella to read. I really loved Court, but Maggie was sort of annoying at times. I didn’t feel a connection with her and I think that is why I didn’t love this one. She was a little too immature and wishy washy for my tastes. Lumbersexual will have you never wanting to look at roadkill ever again, trust me on this. I really think this author has the potential of being a must read author, and I would like to read more from her in the future.

About the Author:
Leslie McAdam is a California girl who loves romance, Little Dude, and well-defined abs. She lives in a drafty old farmhouse on a small orange tree farm in Southern California with her husband and two small children. Leslie always encourages her kids to be themselves – even if it means letting her daughter wear leopard print from head to toe. An avid reader from a young age, she will always trade watching TV for reading a book, unless it’s Top Gear. Or football. Leslie is employed by day but spends her nights writing about the men you fantasize about. She’s unapologetically sarcastic and notoriously terrible at comma placement (that’s what editors are for!). Always up for a laugh, Leslie tries to see humor in all things. When she’s not in the writing cave you’ll find her fangirling over Beck, camping with her family, or mixing up oil paints to depict her love of outdoors on canvas.
