Venus in Blue Jeans

Venus in Blue Jeans
Konigsburg Series bk 1

Meg Benjamin

Coming off a broken engagement to a lying charmer, all bookstore-owner Docia Kent wants is a fling, not a long-term romance. And for her fabulously wealthy and fabulously nosy parents to butt out of her life for a while. The Texas Hill Country town of Konigsburg looks like the perfect place to get both. Especially when she gets a look at long, tall country-vet Cal Toleffson.

Cal has other plans for Docia. One glance at the six-foot version of Botticelli’s Venus, and he knows he’s looking at the woman of his dreams. Now if he can just fend off the “eccentric” characters of Konigsburg long enough to convince her romance isn’t such a bad idea.

One night of mind-blowing sex isn’t the only thing that leaves them both stunned. Someone’s up to no good, and Docia is caught in cross-hairs. Once again she finds her trust tested—leaving her wondering if she was ever meant to have a happily ever, after all.

Have you ever found a new author that grabs you from the first page? That is what Meg did for me. Unfortunately for me, I had this book on my kindle on my laptop, so there was no taking it with me everywhere.

I loved Cal, he was a man that knew who he was and what he wanted and wasn’t afraid to go after it. Docia was the same way. They both had very definite ideas about what they were looking for and what they weren’t.

They are a perfect compliment for each other in both their attitudes about life and also the townspeople. Cal is from a small town in Iowa however he has never seen anything like the people of K. He spends a lot of time shaking his head at the people and how they treat people that are a little different and that try and move into town. Docia however is from Texas and even though her family owns half of Texas she isn’t from K and the people or rather one person doesn’t ever let her forget it.

This is one of those books that I can read over and over again. I enjoyed it so much that as soon as I was finished I had to download the other two books that are already out and can hardly wait for the last book in the series to come out.

This book is an e-book.

I give this book a 4 out of 5.

    I liked this one, too. And I enjoyed the 2nd & 3rd as well.

  2. Heather

    I can hardly wait for Erik's book. It will be interesting to see what happens with the brother's relationship.

    So glad you liked it Heather!

    Thanks Meg, I read it as part of the RomCon Reading Challenge, and am so glad that I did. Any word on when we will get Erik's book?
