Morning Man

A hot jock and a mouthy, new-to-town radio babe have incredible on-air chemistry, earning their mid-market country station unheard-of ratings. But if they hop in the sack together, their show will go the way of Cheers when Sam and Diane finally did it. Unwilling to risk their show’s popularity, they embark on a relationship that is as packed with inuendo as their morning show, Wake Up with Tack and Dayna.

I loved, loved Morning Man. It is incredibly hard to write believable dialog. It is even harder to get this finecky reader to laugh out loud. Barbara Kellyn did both. She earned my trust as a reader from page one and kept me hooked right up to the tension-packed ending. Seriously, Morning Man has it all. Unique setting, honest, believable plot, and compelling characters with jobs that actually show up on the page and drive their story. Oh, and it has the funniest photoshoot scene ever committed to the page.

Enjoy these favorite lines of mine and then pick up your copy of Morning Man. You’ll wish you could wake up with Tack and Dayna in real life!

About Jessi Gage

Jessi lives with her husband and children in the Seattle area. She’s a passionate reader of all genres of romance, especially anything involving the paranormal. Ghosts, demons, vampires, witches, weres, name it, she’ll read it. As for writing, she's sticking to Highlanders and contemporaries with a paranormal twist (for now). A career student (aka indecisive and inquisitive bookworm), Jessi brings her love of research to her worlds and characters. Her guiding tenet in her writing is that good always trumps evil, but not before evil gives good one heck of a run for its money. The last time she imagined a world without romance novels, her husband found her crouched in the corner, rocking.

    A great story, and a wonderful review–and I love your idea of including your favorite lines. Neat!

      Including favorite lines in my book reviews accomplishes two things. (1) Gives the flavor of the novel better than anything I could possibly say, and (2) Means less work for me:)
