About Steal My Magnolia

Life lesson from Grady Buchanan: If you’re going to fall in love with the untouchable girl in town, don’t hire her as your only employee.

Even after he bungled the interview with Magnolia MacIntyre, he knew better than to hire her. The list of why it’s a bad idea is a long one.

Her father could ruin his fledgling business.

She is completely overqualified.

And he’s attracted to her.

What does Grady do? He offers her the job.

Magnolia knew better than to take it. Normally, she’d make the safe choice, and working for Grady is anything but.

He’s new in town–and entirely too charming.

Her dad will be furious.

She hates the outdoors and working for an outdoor adventure company is not exactly the right fit.

What does she do? She says yes on the spot.

Grady and Magnolia will have to prove to everyone in their life that they’re not crazy. And prove to each other that the list of why it’s a bad idea should be tossed out the window.

For these two opposites, sometimes doing the wrong thing is exactly right.

‘Steal My Magnolia’ is a full-length contemporary romance and can be read as a standalone. Book #3 in the Love At First Sight series, Green Valley Chronicles, Penny Reid Book Universe.

Steal My Magnolia by Karla Sorensen

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Publication date: February 9, 2021

Welcome back to Green Valley in Penny Reid’s Book Universe!

This is the third book in the “Love at First Sight” series written by Karla Sorensen.

Once again we revisit the Buchanan family curse, where when a member of the Buchanan family meets their “ONE” (in Green Valley) it’s love at first sight and for life.

Let me start by saying that this book can be read as a standalone, but the reader would definitely benefit from reading the previous book in the series Batter of Wits because the main character in this book is the previous books main characters, twin brother Grady.

What makes this story so good and engaging is that Grady’s “ONE” is the one person who would make his life complicated, weird, and awkward.
Magnolia MacIntyre, Tucker’s ex-fiance, the one he broke up with to be with Grady’s twin sister Grace.

I really liked the characters in this story.
Grady and Magnolia circle one another throughout the story, which builds their chemistry and attraction to one another.
That being said, this is a slooooooow burn.
I really love slow-burn romance especially when it’s well written and the author builds the couple’s relationship until the anticipation of them finally getting together is so worth the wait.

The reason I’m only giving this book a 4-star instead of a 5-star is because I thought the ending was kinda anti-climatic.

Yes, there’s a happy ending, but I was kinda expecting more raw passion when Grady and Magnolia are finally…FINALLY on the same page in their relationship.

Good story, and a great addition to the “Love at First Sight” series.

” I voluntarily read an ARC of this book which was provided by Smartypants Romance in exchange for an honest review.”

About Karla Sorensen

Karla Sorensen has been an avid reader her entire life, preferring stories with a happily-ever-after over just about any other kind. And considering she has an entire line item in her budget for books, she realized it might just be cheaper to write her own stories. It doesn’t take much to keep her happy…a book, a really big glass of wine, and at least thirty minutes of complete silence every day. She still keeps her toes in the world of health care marketing, where she made her living pre-babies. Now she stays home, writing and mommy-ing full time (this translates to almost every day being a ‘pajama day’ at the Sorensen household…don’t judge). She lives in West Michigan with her husband, two exceptionally adorable sons and big, shaggy rescue dog.
