In this smoldering fan-favorite tale from New York Times bestselling author Lori Foster, lumberyard owner Buck Boswell prides himself on his way with women—but his prickly neighbor Sadie Harte seems immune to his charms. Is she really as aloof as she acts, or can Buck convince her to take a chance on the guy next door?

As we all know, novellas can be tricky. While I almost never hate them, I rarely love them. But one author that I think does novellas well is Lori Foster. I’ve been in a bit of a reading slump, so I thought I’d read some of Foster’s novellas, and the first one I read was Tailspin. Tailspin was pretty adorable, and I liked a lot of things about this book.

What I Liked:

  • The puppies!!!!! Okay, seriously maybe my favorite part of Tailspin were the two adorable chihuahuas, Butch and Tish. They both had so much personality, and being the Momma to two dogs myself, I know how dogs can have such different personalities. Their antics made me laugh.
  • Buck was pretty darn swoony, although that is the usual for a Lori Foster hero. I will admit his name is kind of ridiculous, but that’s a small thing. I love how confident and strong he is.
  • Buck is just so darn wonderful with Tish, and Butch, too, that it made my heart melt. He’s patient and gentle, and did I mention I loved him?
  • I loved how Sadie is just so in love with animals. She’s a nice woman. She’s not my all time favorite heroine, but I absolutely did like her.

What I Struggled With:

  • Not too much, actually. It’s very short, as it is a novella, but that didn’t bother me much.
  • Sadie and Buck do fall for each other very quickly, but, again, it’s a novella and that’s to be expected.

Final Thought:

Lori Foster sure can put together a novella, and that is very evident in Tailspin. Although the puppies Butch and Tish totally stole the show here.

    Even though I am not a big fan of dogs ( attacked when I was a kid) I love seeing them in romance novels. I love it when authors make them wow the reader with fun personalities

    This is another author I’ve been meaning to read, but there are just so many books to get to! I’m never going to get to them all.

    Great review. I’m glad you enjoyed this one.

      Haha. There are so many books! I really love Just a Hint, Clint, and Too Much Temptation. But she’s is known for her MMA fighter books which I think began with Jude’s Law (which I also really liked).

    I love dogs in books! They definitely add more to the story, with just the right amount of spark and lightness. Yeah, Buck’s name isn’t one I’m fond of but if he’s a swoony hero, count me in! Novellas can definitely be tricky but I’ll have to check out Lori Foster if you say she does them really well 🙂
