    This book brought the FIRE!! 🔥🔥🔥 Man, Anders and Laney came together fast, but intense. There was a chemistry and connection between them, like two souls who were meant to be together, finally finding each other. Anders is the quiet, somewhat hermit, mountain man who retreated into himself after a heartbreak.

God, he was such a man's man; strong and protective, not to mention sexy as hell! When they were together is was beyond fire...they were smoldering. I wish this book was longer, I wanted more. Usually it's hard to get a lot of feeling and depth with these shorter novellas but this one was great. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

I want to carve out a carbon copy for myself if I could. For me when a book is good you love it, but for me, I literally fell in love. Laney, I love her as well. I can understand her indecisiveness for fear of getting hurt again. In the beginning, her need/desperation for sex and throwing herself at Anders was funny to me, but I was anticipating where the author is going with this. However, it came out great. I love their love, I love their chemistry and I love their journey. Overall, its simple storyline and a short read, but made an impact on me personally. And per usual, the author for me writes the sweetest stories, but she knows how to throw in those spicy ingredients to make it HOT. ***I don’t equate these stories to real life. It’s definitely about personal taste and what you would or want to tolerate with the stories you read. I hope this review was helpful.

When she see’s a man across the bar she decides to take a chance, however, this man is closed off and pretty much brushes her aside. That is until the mystery man gives her a ride.

There is a level of attraction. They are both broken, but their attraction for one another. They didn’t know they both needed each other to heal until they met. I loved everything about their story and the growth of these two characters was fantastic. If you’re looking for a love at first sight romance with a broken mountain man this is MUST READ!

    This was explosive. Anders and Laney are explosive together and I can see and feel the sparks when they first meet and every time they are in the same vicinity together. Even though they are both considered broken, it's like a puzzle piece finally coming together with these two. This was explosive.

    Mountain Love This is another masterpiece from a series by Penny Wylder. Another wonderful reason to find a quiet place to delve into the mountains and the passion, at least fir the weekend. You can almost feel the crisp chill and heat the howls of the wild. Loved it. Any opinions expressed within this review are solely and uniquely made by me and I am happily leaving this review.

    In spite of Laney being so petit, the giant Anders was made for her and vice-versa. They were both talented with artistic hearts. Both knew what life was like paired with someone who did not appreciate their creative natures and how debilitating it was. It was easy for these two to get to a happy ever after.

Life should find you. Small Town Big Man is the third book in the Big Men Small Towns Romance series and is the story of Laney and Anderson "Anders". I really loved this story and characters, a lot!!! Laney and Anders are two people who cross paths in the funniest way which ends up being very poignant and heartbreaking. Both have suffered the ultimate betrayal by someone that they loved and who they thought loved them back, her just recently and him two years ago. They may not be looking for anything but what they each get hit with in short order is undeniable and super hot. Well they both try to deny it, Laney flipping between hot and cold at an instant. Anders is guarding his heart even as he knows how he feels, as if he gives it to her and she leaves he knows he will never recover. Laney is a runner in her life and eventually Anders holds on to her and is determined to not let her run away again. Laney just needs him to make her face up to and admit what she feels for him. Anders may be a "small town big man" but he is gentle, sweet and caring with Laney. Well that is until he knows she needs his strength and power in more ways than one, which result in enough heat to melt a snowstorm. I found this story-line to be very captivating and well written. It sucked me in from the first sentence as it is funny, witty, emotional, tender, cantankerous, entertaining and filled with sizzling hot passion. Both Anders and Laney were well developed characters who with the dual POV you were able to see what was pinging around each of their heads, with Laney like a pin-ball machine at times. My only issue is that this book needs another visit with a good proofreader. There were a lot of errors which were easily spotted and this really annoyed me. I can handle a couple but 2 dozen is a but much, and very unusual for a book by Penny Wylder. As a result what would have easily been a 5+ Star rating instead is 4 Stars. But aside from this the book is fantastic.

    Bad versus good apples... by and1515 Someone had told this place was a hot spot but nope it was a total dud not a man worth his salt insight but oh well maybe if she downed a few more drinks her option just might change. Yeah this place was quickly losing its appeal especially with Mr. Creepy Dude and his less then stellar pickup lines so yeah he should have realized that I wasn't impressed and left me alone but nope so I had to insist a little more harshly with my fist.

Turning around the guy who's attention I was trying to get was standing there. The only reason I'd even gone into town was for fuel the generator had run dry and it was freezing. Okay so this wasn't what I expected when I offered the girl a ride home and as much as he might be interested he wasn't going there not with a girl three sheets to the wind. The one problem with nights of over indulgence is the morning after is were your poor bladder wakes you in protest. Anders wasn't about to walk away a second time especially now that she was sober so she'll needed to hang on tight because I'm just getting warmed up. Sometimes things happened for a reason and yeah maybe there were quite a few lessons they needed to learn after sometimes you have to pick a few rotten apples do that you'll know when you pick the perfect one.

    Penny Wylder is predictable only in the respect that you know anything she writes is going to be beautifully written, steamy and engaging - and Small Town Big Man is no exception. Laney and Anders are two beautifully broken characters - both wronged in past relationships and neither looking to fall in love ever again, at least no time soon. But from their first meeting at the Bear Claw, they are inexplicably drawn to one another.

Laney and Anders are two beautifully broken characters - both wronged in past relationships and neither looking to fall in love ever again, at least no time soon. But from their first meeting at the Bear Claw, they are inexplicably drawn to one another. Anders is the perfect book boyfriend - a strong, protective mountain man with a heart of gold, guarded as it may be. Laney is just absolutely authentic and relatable, just out of a bad relationship and afraid that anything that follows will hurt just as much. In each other, they find that love knows nothing of timetables. If they allow themselves to admit it. I have read almost 40 titles by Penny Wylder, and I would have to say that Anders and Laney have made Small Town Big Man my favourite.

    Insta lust, with a touch of the feels Anders and Laney had good chemistry. A little bit of push an pull due to their past hurts and the sudden attraction between the two make up the bulk of conflict in the book. Although there was somewhat instant attraction, I liked that they did not immediately act on this. Both characters had some emotional growth and better personal insight in the evolution of the story.
