More Than We Bargained For  by Fiona West | Book Review
More Than We Bargained For Series: Timber Falls #4
Genres: Contemporary Romance

Wanted: renter for rural Oregon mountain lodge. Single mom divorcees named Starla preferred.

Starla Moore despises a mystery, and there's no bigger mystery than Sawyer Devereaux. He comes into the library on Thursdays like clockwork, but rarely talks to anyone else. Not that she despises him; after all, he's easy on the eyes, quick-witted, and that southern accent makes her swoon. But in the midst of a divorce, her only romance is the bookish kind. Worst of all, crashing with her bestie won't be an option soon, especially since her final fling with her husband had one very specific unintended consequence...

Regaining consciousness with his head in the cute librarian's lap was a rude awakening; Sawyer thought his health problems were under control. Sans driver's license, there's no way he can live in his little cabin alone...or keep up with the anonymous book donations he's been leaving to make Starla smile. When he finds out she's struggling financially, he proposes a trade: his housing for her driving. Surely he can keep his feelings a secret for a few more months...

He's given up on his dreams; she's just figuring hers out. When the rumors start, will it push these two misfits together...or drive one of them out of Timber Falls for good?

This was a new author for me and I will say that I enjoyed this book. This one brings us Starla, a single recently divorced single mother. She has just gotten a new job as a librarian (my dream job) and she’s struggling a bit to fit her footing. We also meet Sawyer who lives as a recluse because of his chronic illness.

Sawyer needs someone to drive him around and Starla needs to get out of her friend’s apartment which makes for a perfect arrangement. This is a very warm and easy book. There isn’t heavy sex scenes or anything of the sort. It is very heartwarming.

Having not read any of the other books I didn’t have a hard time keeping up although I did feel like I could have gotten more from this one if had read them. Although it is a standalone. All in all this was the perfect read for a lazy, rainy day.
