About Do Me A Favor:
Some days things just click. Today is not that day.
Love is a battlefield, and divorce attorney Sadie Howard is entrenched on the frontlines. She thought she might have met the right man once, but he was a career military guy who got shipped overseas and left her heart on the tarmac. These days, the only commitment Sadie wants is the one she’s made to her Denver law practice.
Combat photographer Roman Dvornakov is back. Fresh out of the U.S. Army, he’s using family connections to snap photos at a few weddings while he builds his civilian photography practice. After all he’s captured on film, a few posed wedding shots should be a cakewalk. Seeing so much death through the camera lens, he’s now ready to build something worth living for. A thriving photography business, definitely. But he’s certain his new mission also includes Sadie, the girl who slipped away.
Sadie isn’t convinced, and she’s not willing to open her heart anytime soon. Besides, she’s got a high-profile divorce case taking up all her attention. Winning the case for her client will make or break her practice. So what if it’s a custody dispute over a ridiculously expensive fish tank? When Roman discovers the soon-to-be divorced couple are still in love, he and his slightly-nutty grandmother, Babushka, are determined to convince them to cancel the proceedings. He’s not camera shy when it comes to matters of the heart, but interfering with Sadie’s clients could wreck her career and any chance they’ll ever have together…

Fourth installment in the Mile High Matched series and I’m still in love with the crazy world of the Dvornakov family. The next one to be hitched is Roman. His career in the military couldn’t save him for all the wildest and utterly insane adventure for the battle of his life. Especially involving his babushka and his family.
After years of snapping shots in the most dangerous places, that man was hopeless when it came to the matters of the heart. His heart. Realizing that the woman he left behind without looking back had always been the one. I adored his bluntness, not beating around the bush to express his feelings. Coming back home and settling his new business was an easy job but seeing Sadie again, returned what was hidden to the surface, she was like the air he breathed.
Sadie became a tougher version of herself, becoming a divorce attorney, far from what she would have expected many years ago, when she met Roman and then broke her heart.
She was sassy, independent, deciding to help others who had failed their marriage. Because love didn’t last forever and her job and her past relationships has proven more than once. Real life was her reality not smoking hot military guys who were trying so hard to make her fall in love with them.
I adored their chemistry and banter. Roman had his ways to make her feel like she was the only one. Damn if it didn’t melt my heart. In every long breathtaking stare, in every gesture turned into that palpable passion that never ceased to slip away, born over and over again more intense, real and undeniable.
If you have read some of the books, you know that things could turn into a mess, hilarious moments with a family who loved meddling. You couldn’t keep a Dvornakov out of his mission, and when he had to turn into her grandmother who had no filter and unabashedly made her own plans to play matchmaker when needed. I loved that crazy old woman.
Anyway, Sadie and Roman were definitely a couple I loved, it was effortless to fall for them. Of course, Sadie drove me crazy sometimes with her stubbornness and tendencies to drive Roman away but I totally got her point.
Christina Hovland delivered an adorable second chance romance, filled with humour that comes with the Dvornakov family, noisy, loud and crazy but nonetheless endearing. Written with heart and genuine.
