Book Review: The Hang Up by Tawna Fenske 3

Hang UpThe Hang Up

by Tawna Fenske





PR specialist Miriam Ashley makes her living cleaning up bad boys. Mountain climber-turned-CEO Jason Sanders should be an easy fix. And with a nephew to care for, he’s motivated. The problem? Every time she tries to help Jason get his head in the boardroom, they end up in the bedroom.

What the hell is she thinking? He’s the definition of off-limits. Not just because he’s a client—he spends his free time risking his life mountain climbing. The same thing that got her father killed. She’s not going to open her heart to a guy who could disappear at the drop of a…well, she’d rather not finish that thought.

She needs to leave complicated alone, but every time she sees Jason, something tells her it’s her who might fall…

Each book in the First Impressions series is a standalone, full-length story that can be enjoyed out of order.

Favorite Quotes:


I’m not sure how to feel about a woman who stares at my junk for that long and says ‘I’m sorry.’


Because nothing says romance like peeing on a stick.


Miriam scurried after him, moving at a speedier clip than she was accustomed to. She didn’t usually move this fast unless there was a clearance sale at Barney’s.


I think we need to stop talking about my sister now. It’s kinda distracting with you standing there in your underwear looking hot enough to set my headboard on fire.


What do you want to me called? My lady friend? Concubine?   Schmoppie?


My Review:


This was only my second date with the talented Ms. Fenske and I am totally enamored and ready to be her steady – fangirl. The Hang Up was a quick and amusing read full of feisty and witty characters, sparkling humor, evocative and naughty banter, and clever writing. I adored it start to finish and snorted and smirked my way through this lively and entertaining tale.  More please!
