When a phone call brings news that she’s inherited a beautiful old home in Mendocino, California from a long-forgotten aunt, she moves her entire life across the country to embark on what she sees as a great, romance-novel-worthy adventure. But romance novels always have a twist, don’t they?
There’s a cowboy, one that ignites her loins. Because Cowboy Hank is totally loin-ignition worthy. But there’s also a librarian, Clark Barrow. And he calls her Vivian. Can tweed jackets and elbow patches compete with chaps and spurs? You bet your sweet cow pie.
In Screwdrivered, Alice Clayton pits Superman against Clark in a hilarious and hot battle that delights a swooning Viv/Vivian. Also within this audiobook, an answer to the question of the ages: Why ride a cowboy when you can ride a librarian?
Screwdrivered kept me entertained from start to finish, I just love this audiobook, finally Alice Clayton goes in track what we read or listening in Wallbanger. This audiobook, tell Vivian story, we meet her in Rusty Nailed, Vivian she is has tattoos, piercings and book lover (romance novel) and she fantasies about the hero´s book. Her world changes when she gets a phone call in the middle of the night from an attorney in California saying that she had inherited the estate of an estranged aunt, she last seen when she was 12 olds years. Of course the house have taken their toll on the once majestic estate and she finds herself with loads of work ahead of her, and fixing is not going to be easy. She meet Clark and he is exactly what you would expect from a librarian, right down to the tweed jacket with elbow patches, nerdy, uptight, awkward, and controlled and he is passionate about keeping the historic homes in their original design as much as possible. And of course working with Vivian is a challenge to work. And working together their relationship starts to change and they become friends, but just how friendly will they become? But Viv also meet Hank, a shirtless cowboy responsible for taking care of her late aunt’s horses and chickens. Viv soon sets her sights on Hank, and he was that man that belongs on the cover of the romance novel shirtless riding horseback with his rock hard abs and pectorals glistening in the sun. He turned Viv into a babbling mess whenever he was near. Will she decide to ride a cowboy or go unconventional and ride a librarian??? You have to listen this audiobook to find out!!! I love her inner monologues and unfiltered thoughts, it was really fun to listening. And love to have Simon visit to pay a visit.
