Wanted: renter for rural Oregon mountain lodge. Single mom divorcees named Starla preferred.
Starla Moore despises a mystery, and there’s no bigger mystery than Sawyer Devereaux. He comes into the library on Thursdays like clockwork, but rarely talks to anyone else. Not that she despises him; after all, he’s easy on the eyes, quick-witted, and that Southern accent makes her swoon. But in the midst of a divorce, her only romance is the bookish kind. Worst of all, crashing with her bestie won’t be an option soon, especially since her final fling with her husband had one very specific unintended consequence…
Regaining consciousness with his head in the cute librarian’s lap was a rude awakening; Sawyer thought his health problems were under control. Sans driver’s license, there’s no way he can live in his little cabin alone…or keep up with the anonymous book donations he’s been leaving to make Starla smile. When he finds out she’s struggling financially, he proposes a trade: his housing for her driving. Surely he can keep his feelings a secret for a few more months…
He’s given up on his dreams; she’s just figuring hers out. When the rumors start, will it push these two misfits together…or drive one of them out of Timber Falls for good?

More Than We Bargained For by Fiona West is a great read! I loved how both protagonists were involved with books. One was a librarian and the other donated books to the librarian just to make her day. Swoon worthy moment there. Any man both fictional or real that does that for a woman is a keeper. I really enjoyed their moments together. Rooted the whole way for each of them. Sawyer was a very likable hero. The heroine was great except for the fact that she let her cheating , charm-talking ex-husband to land her in a real spot. Divorce on the horizon and a surprise the heroine wasn’t expecting to have. Then again, I felt like well, that’s what she gets for being so easily led by his charms. Why couldn’t she sway that easily with Sawyer? A tad bit frustrating. However, the rest of this book was amazing. the dialogue was fun to follow. The characters kept me entertained. The story was written in a way that pulled me into the book. Once I began, the more I wanted to know. Overall, this romantic comedy was a good read.
