The Simple Life by Tara Sivec Review

4 Smooches


*A standalone romantic comedy with a lot of heart*

Brooklyn Manning thought her life was perfect in every way, until it crumbled down around her and turned into a dumpster fire. With her pride wounded and her tail tucked between her legs, she leaves New York and goes back to her tiny hometown of White Timber, Montana.

No more twenty-four-hour taco trucks, no more shopping at the best designer stores within walking distance, no more giving taxi drivers the finger when they angrily honk at her. She didn’t think it could get any worse. But then Clint Hastings walked into the room and insulted her.

Her arch nemesis from high school is no longer a nerdy computer whiz, masturbating to pictures in PC World magazine in his free time (allegedly). He’s grown up to be a hot-as-hell cowboy, and she has no other choice but to be a smart ass right back to him. After all, it’s what they do. It’s what they’ve always done, and twelve years apart hasn’t changed anything.

Only this time, getting under each other’s skin is a hell of a lot more fun than it used to be.


What a sexy and fun rom-com from a favorite of ours, Tara Sivec. Brooklyn and Clint have a past involving a bit of a high school rivalry. But now that Brooklyn is back in town after losing her job in the big city she’s learning the guy she couldn’t stand years ago has become a MAN.

Hilarity ensues as the two become reacquainted and they learn that they are both very different than they were all those years ago. Their chemistry is intense and this book is beyond sexy.

I really enjoyed Tara’s venture back into the world of rom-com. I look forward to see what she has for us next.
