About Blow Me Away:
It’s all fun and games until somebody falls in love…
Jase Dvornakov has always loved women, 80’s hair band music, and things that go boom. He used to disarm bombs in the Navy, but he’s back in Denver after a mission overseas went sideways and destroyed his future, including his marriage. Now he arranges flowers in his family’s floral business because flowers don’t explode.
Cookie-baker extraordinaire, Heather Reese, has had one too many rounds of heartache, so she’s sworn off men and prefers to spend her evenings binge-watching game shows. Plus her no-men rule gives her time to focus on her dream come true—Heather’s Cookie Co.—her very own bake shop with an underground following for naughty shaped treats. She refuses to be interested in the hot-shot florist across the street. He is trouble with a capital T. Sexy trouble, but still, a hook-up with Jase is a hard nope.
Desperate to avoid his family’s incessant matchmaking, a fake breakup with the beautiful Heather is just what the florist ordered. If his family believes Heather decimated his heart, they’ll leave him alone. Heather isn’t so keen on the idea, but Jase is determined to make it worth her while. When a pretend breakup becomes the real romance neither was expecting, together they’ll have to decide if it’s finally time to light the fuse on love…

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 4 Stars
What is not to love about Blow Me Away? It’s smart, funny, and full of whacky family!
Jase is a divorced former Navy bomb expert now working in his family’s floral business. (Because flowers won’t explode.) Across the street, Heather has her cookie business, specializing in “dirty” treats. When Jase’s meddling family gets involved in his non-existent love life, he figures that a fake breakup with Heather is the perfect way to get his grandmother off his back. And she’s sworn off men, so there’s no chance of her getting her feelings hurt, right?
Except that the more time Jase and Heather spend together as “exes” the more they realize that there just may be something between them worth taking a chance on.
This story is well-paced, and the faux romance didn’t feel forced to me. I love the crazy cast of characters that make up Jase’s family! Blow Me Away is the second book in a series, as Jase and Heather are friends of the couple in book #1. However, I didn’t feel as if I was missing story from not having read the previous book, so it is a true standalone.
