Do Me a Favor (Mile High Matched #4) by Christina Hovland

I have been loving this series. It has humor, heart and a grandmother who loves to butt in and help those she loves. This isn't just any grandmother...not the one who is all buttoned up and thinks everything has to be perfect and in place...Nope, this one has her picture where the definition is for One of a Kind on Google.

Her name is Babushka and she is the boss lady of the Dvornakov family. Now one would think a nice elderly woman would be ready to sit, retire and let her children live their lives. If that is your thought, you have another thing coming and this entire series has been a major delight because of this woman. In Do Me a Favor (Mile High Matched, #4) she is one smart cookie and we benefit from it.

Roman Dvornakov is back home.
He had been a photographer traveling with the armed service all of the world in the most dangerous situations. He had many close calls and now was ready to start the next chapter of his life as a bridal photographer. Yet his next chapter had his focus on someone from his past.

Sadie Howard

Yes, Sadie was an early chapter in his life story and he intended to have another chance with the woman who haunted him all these years. You see, these two had a weekend together that became much more than hooking up. It had all the elements for two people to see where it would go and Roman made the serious mistake of not allowing any idea of it going somewhere; he nipped it in the bud, no long distance, no trying, nothing.

That experience left Sadie Howard with a sour taste in her mouth and heart. She then had another crappy experience when another guy and the dye was cast...

Men Sucked. Period.

She became a very successful divorce attorney and came back to her home town to open up her own practice. She had years of dedicated focus in a practice that had a bulletproof/no women allowed-glass ceiling. She had worked, excelled and provided winning results for her clients yet the practice was never going to allow her to make partner. Finally, enough was enough and she was starting all over again at home.

These two cross paths at Sadie's brother's wedding. The chemistry is still there, especially with Roman. He really wants to see where this could go...but by being a divorce lawyer for so many years, Sadie has a wall so high, Roman may not be able to climb it.

Roman begins to doubt his ability and enlists Babushka. Asking her to help is like that saying...Be careful what you ask for because you just might get it. Asking the force of Babushka to assist you in your love life has ramifications.

This was a delight. It had all the elements Hovland fans love. Quirky stuff, sexy stuff, heartful stuff and lots of warmth. This couple was equally matched. Oh, and Roman was EVERYTHING. I would love a man like him Big Time.

With the way the world is going, this series is a perfect place to spend some time.
