Buying a cult compound to build a tiny town? Piece of cake. Being one of the suckers who falls in love on TV? Hell, no.
Lucky for me, I found a CFO who shares my urge to skip the mating game part of my family’s social experiment and reality show. Vanessa and I can cast the cops, teachers, and nurses needed for a self-contained community, and leave the dating mess to my siblings.
Easier said than done. Vanessa’s smart and funny and hot as hell, and for once I can’t focus on running the show. Somewhere between a sexy waterslide ride and adopting dog, we share a helluva lot more than spreadsheets. The only thing riskier is realizing someone’s out to destroy our project before it’s off the ground.
How do I save the business, protect my family, and keep my hands off the sexy CFO?
For once, I’m not sure I’ve got it all under control.
Great start to a new series
Show Time is the perfect title for the kickoff to the new Juniper Ridge series. The action and the laughs started with the first “confessional” and continued straight through to the happily ever after. Dean and Vanessa are both wound a bit tight, which you’d assume might cause waves between them. And it does...wave after wave of attraction neither of them are looking for or want. I love it when those who resist the most fall the fastest!
The concept, even to this non reality-watching reader, is unique and compelling. Even if I didn’t want to watch people pair off, just the idea of watching a whole community build from the ground up is some must-see...or in this case, must read goodness.
The family dynamic is very interesting and the hints into Dean’s siblings issues will definitely have me coming back for more. Fenske’s trademark humor is present in scene one/chapter one; I laughed out loud multiple times. I can’t wait to learn more about the secondary characters, as well. I’m already intrigued by Tia the organic farmer and Amy, the incoming chief of police, not to mention Colleen and Patti, who longtime readers will recognize from the Ponderosa Ranch series.
I can’t say enough about this new series and cannot wait for the next book to come out!
Great start to a new series
This was a fabulous first book in a new series. I know when I pick up a romantic comedy from Tawna Fenske I will not be disappointed. This one even had the added bonus of a little whodunit included. I pretty much had a smile on my face the entire time I was reading this book, which by the way I don’t think I put down once I started reading it. It was that good!
I loved both Dean and Vanessa from the moment I met them. These were two people that did not want a relationship because of past troubles and yet there was an undeniable attraction. I loved every interaction these two had, some had me chuckling and some had me fanning my kindle to cool it down.
I loved meeting all of Dean’s family and I must admit I am excited for each and every one of them to have their own book. I am very excited for this new series and if you have read any other series by Tawna you will love this new one too.
Show Time is the first book in a new series by Tawna Fenske and let’s just say, it’s going to be another amazing series! It took me days to figure out what I wanted to say about this book because I loved it so much and feel that I can’t and won’t be able to ever do it justice. First, you get to meet Dean Judson who is the oldest brother of the Judson family. He may seem familiar to those who have read Tawna’s Ponderosa Resort Series as he was introduced in those books. You also get to meet Vanessa Vincent who was introduced in the Ponderosa Resort Series as well. What I loved about this book was how relatable for me it was. I felt like I was Vanessa, minus the hot CEO as my boss, but a girl can dream! This book has all the exciting starting points to a great new series. Between the new characters that both appear to be so strong yet have those few insecurities, that make them stronger together to the psycho ex-fiancé, to the drama of a new reality tv series in development. There’s so much going on and this was a great start to it all.
