From The Book Junkie Reads . . . The 48-Hour Hookup (Chase Brothers, #4) . . .
Some hilarious fun with a racoon, a handyman-non-handy-man, a sexy HAVC guy, a runaway bride, a large tree branch, a snow storm, and some hot, sweaty fun. I was entertained all the way through this read.
Chase was infamous for all the wrong reasons and getting away from it all was at the top of his list of must dos. Claire was not having any better of a time and being dubbed NYC “Run-away Bride” was no joy for her. Needing an escape, she goes upstate New York and needs more help than she anticipated. When the help arrive she gets way more than she bargained for.
The read was fun, a little quirky, some minor drama, some shared body heat, some easy banter, and bad publicity. This was my first read from Sarah Balance and this series. I was tickled. Can two people both with their own infamous history truly find what neither was looking for?

Liam and Claire burst inside the lodge together, snow swirling in their wake.
He shut the door against the wind. “Hell of a storm,” he said.
“Yeah. Some day you’re having.” She immediately regretted the words. How many times was she going to remind him of that stupid tree?
If he shared similar thoughts, he didn’t mention it. Instead, he pushed back the hair that had fallen in her face, shocking her so much with the light contact that she took a step back.
“Sorry,” he said. “I didn’t mean anything. You had a branch…” He tugged, extracting a small bough from her hair.
“Save it for the fire,” she half-joked. Inside, she was experiencing total meltdown. He’d touched her. He’d touched her, and he was spending the night, and she’d had sex dreams about him.
Holy awkward hell.
She realized she’d been staring when he cleared his throat and pulled his phone from his pocket. “I actually have reception, I think. I’m going to try to make a couple phone calls.”
She didn’t object, or even give a solid reply. Just a sort of half nod that had her wishing she’d blink and wake up. So what if he was pretty much the hottest guy she’d ever laid eyes on? He was still the worst idea she’d ever had. The worst idea she was still having. Runaway Bride hooking up with Hot HVAC Guy was not a headline she needed in her life.
And who said anything about hooking up?
This was going to be a long night. A long, cold night spent thinking about appendages and green eyes and really, really bad ideas.
She watched him walk to the far side of the room to stand by the window as he made his call. The last she heard of his soft-spoken words were stuck here and she has a chainsaw.
Sarah and her husband of what he calls “many long, long years” live on the mid-Atlantic coast with their six young children, all of whom are perfectly adorable when they’re asleep. She never dreamed of becoming an author, but as a homeschooling mom, she often jokes she writes fiction because if she wants anyone to listen to her, she has to make them up. As it turns out, her characters aren’t much better than the kids, but nevertheless, you’ll find her writing sexy contemporary romance for Entangled Publishing until they throw her out.
