Without a Net is a sweet love story.

Eva has had a hard year. Her husband died, she found out truths she wasn't even looking for, she found out her husband left her with more debt than she knew what to do with. Her life was in shambles. When she runs into Max literally, in the grocery store she notices how good looking he is but Max comes with a reputation. He likes to live life on the edge. He takes chances. He doesn't stay with one woman for long. Even though he is her best friend's brother, she can't risk her heart or waste her time and energy on a passing fling. When he hires her as a PR for his upcoming novel, can she keep professional?

This was my first read from Ms. Blake. I enjoyed her style of writing. I will be looking into the other books in this series.

This is a really lovely story, which successfully captured my emotions, making me laugh, tear up and sigh. Good mix of characters too, and good cameo for the son, and best buddy. I loved that it was partly explaining the process that Indie writers go through, giving us some insight into the other side of the world that we so happily immerse ourselves into every day. The growing romance was well planned out, and the passion fun as well as hot. In fact, now that I have thought back, I've upped my rating to 5*s as it really was a very satisfying read. I am looking forward to the next one.
