STEALING ADDA by Tamera Leigh, Reviewed by Kim



Get ready for some major gushing!! Before I start my review, I just have to say that I haven’t read a Tamara Leigh book that I have not loved! Medieval is not my favorite time period, but every one of her medieval stories that I have read is amazing! To me, that is a mark of a very talented author. This book, which is contemporary, is absolutely one of my favorite books ever! It just hit all the right spots for me!
First off, the humor - perfection! I laughed out loud so many times during this story. In fact, there is an acronym that I will now always think about when I’m reading books and that’s all I can say - spoilers. Oh! And I will always think about this story when I hear the word goo! 

Adda is such a great character. I loved loved loved how she found God and how she transformed and grew throughout this book. Tamara does a great job with showing how even though we really want, and try,  to do the right things, old habits can be hard to break. I also like that Adda’s changes were not super quick. That made it more believable to me. 

Then there’s Nick! Wow! Great male character! Without going into spoiler territory, I’ll just say this, I loved his honesty to Adda at the end of the story. I thought I knew what was going to happen, and while the outcome was what I thought, the way it happened was not. I really liked that it was not the normal cookie cutter way to end the story. 

This is definitely going on my keeper shelf - in fact, I might just have two paperbacks (one old and one new), the kindle version, and the audio version. And let me just say, this is one of the best narrated books I have listened to. 

*I purchased this book and was under no obligation to review, nor provide a positive review. 

BackCover Blurb:
WRITER’S BLOCK, NIBBLED NAILS, PLAGIARISM, OH MY!
AND DID I MENTION ROMANCE?

Life for Adda Sinclaire, New York Times best-selling author and historical romance writer extraordinaire, reads more like a country song than a breathless, bodice-bursting affair. For starters, she has no romance in her own life. That might have something to do with the fact that her husband—correction, ex-husband—ran off with Stick Woman, whom everyone knew would never be more than a mid-list author anyway. To add insult to injury (and another verse to the country song), her ex not only took their dog but gave it to Stick Woman.

If that isn't enough, Adda has come down with a horrible case of writer's block, finds herself gifted with a Bible that is determined to speak to her, and is the unwitting target of a romance cover model's misdirected advances.

Just when she catches her breath—and quite possibly the eye of a certain fabulously good-looking man (ahem…her new editor)—her arch-nemesis gives the pot one final stir.
