Sandwich With a Side of Romance by Ktista Phillips

My book review today is a book I won on one of the blogs. I always love to receive free books. It's hard to feed my obsession on books. My book today is Sandwich With a Side of Romance by Krista Phillips. I hadn't read any of Krista's books. She's a friend on facebook but I wasn't familiar with her work. I really enjoyed this book. It was cute, funny, and very entertaining, I know you will love it.

Maddie Buckner moves to Sandwich, Illinois to work in a beauty shop. Thrilled to have the chance to make something of herself so she can get custody of her brother, Kyle. Her first day at work she is disaapointed because all she gets to do is sweep floors. Her boss walks out the door and a man, Reuben Callahan walks in wanting a haircut immediately. Maddie is more than happy to do the job but he falls asleep, jumping awake she cute four inches off the side. Her boss walks in, she fixes the hair, but fires Maddie. When Reuben leaves she is on the roof of his brand new BMW claiming he owes her a job.

Reuben felt bad so offered her a job as a waitress in his restaurant. She manages to dump a tray of food on the mayor's lap so she is fired again but she talks Reuben into taking her as his assistant when she sees the mess his office is in. She is actually very good at that.

Reuben is in a relationship with his manager, Livy, a girl he has dated for years. Livy isn't happy with the new relationship and does everything in her power to sabotage the new employee. Reuben is having issues with his step father, finances, and two new stores he is trying to start.

Maddie comes from a past in foster care, abusive relationships, and poverty. She doesn't want a man in her life especially a good looking one. God is all she needs.

Their antics will have you laughing and crying. It is a hard book to put down and their journey is very entertaining. You must get a copy of this book. I can't wait to read more of Krista's work. God bless you.
