I’m back with another book I think you’ll all enjoy. 🙂
This week’s pick is a quirky little book called Sandwich With a Side of Romance.
This book is the story of Madison Buckner and Reuben Callahan.
Madison aka Maddie is a reformed juvenile deliquent trying to turn her life around in the small town of Sandwich. It’s her first day on the job as a hair dresser in the Cut ‘N’ Style and she already wants to strangle her boss who doesn’t seem to want to let her touch a single client.
During Ms. Judy’s lunch break A handsome stranger, Ruben Callahan, comes in to get his hair cut. Unfortunately, Ruben is exhausted from working long days at his restaurant and dozes off in the chair just as Maddie is going in to start cutting his hair.
As you have probably imagined that was a combination for an accidental bad haircut!
Ms. Judy of course doesn’t play when it comes to new stylists if you mess up a clients hair while on probation you are instantly FIRED!!!!
So Maddie’s first day on the job instantly becomes her last. Since it wasn’t totally her fault she decides to wait until Ruben comes out of the shop after Ms. Judy has fixed his haircut and demands that he help her find a new job by sitting on his car.
Feeling a tiny bit responsible Ruben offers her a job as a waitress in his restaurant. Which turns into another comedy of errors since Maddie is an even worse waitress than she is hair stylist. After some trial and error Maddie talks her way into becoming Ruben’s secretary/office manager.
Ruben and Maddie are attracted to each other however there is a slight wrinkle in this romance in that Ruben has a long time girlfriend by the name of Livy.
Now before you get all up in arms about cheating men and all that, you should know enough about me by now to know I don’t go in for all of that!
Ruben and Maddie honor his relationship with Livy.
So what happens between Livy and Ruben? Will Ruben and Maddie get together in the end? and who is the mysterious Kyle in Maddie’s life?
I guess you’ll have to read the book to find out!
