  • Review: Herons Landing Honeymoon Harbor

    "Herons Landing" is the beginning of a long awaited new series by Ms. Ross. Though I have been a fan of this author, I had not read any of her books for quite a while. So I was interested in this one when it became available. I have to confess I was a...

  • Review: A Risk Worth Taking The Legionnaires, #3

    I felt "A Risk Worth Taking" was a decent story. It's a little slow at times with more talking than action. When it came to the action I thought it was great with the chase scenes and near-death experiences. Jamie is definitely an alpha man and used to...

  • Review: Take the Honey and Run Sweet & Dirty BBW MC Romance, Book #6

    Cathryn Cade takes readers on a fabulously fun and fierce ride with this MC romance. Ms. Cade is a new to me author, but I’m positive this will not be the last story of hers. Manda Kowitsky and John T-Bear Turner are an absolutely delightful pair. When...

  • Review: Riven

    Riven was a was a mixed bag for me. It started poorly for me because the purple prose was out in full force. This author loves her words and she loves to use all of them at the same time. What could be said in 4 words, she uses 20. It kept pulling me...

  • Review: Too Wilde to Wed Wildes of Lindow Castle

    I was hesitant about this book at first because I'd read the one previous and I thought North a bit too oblivious and stuffy and I wished Diana would simply speak up if the wedding wasn't what she wanted. I'm so pleased to note that North is much more...

  • Review: Then There Was You Angel Falls

    “Then There Was You” is a fun, sweet, and heartwarming small town romance that mashes second chance romance, enemies to lovers, and opposites attract tropes together. Throw in the man-in-uniform aspect in the form of Chief Police Colton Walker, with female...

  • Review: The Prince A Devil's Duke Novel, #4

    "The Prince" was wonderful, heartbreaking, amazing, and I wished that it was longer still so I could fully see the happily ever after that Libby and Ziyaeddin wrought for themselves. Ashe pulls no punches in this one, by the way. Sodomy and homosexuality...

  • Review: Texting Prince Charming

    This book wasn’t what I was thinking it was after reading the blurb. I expected it to be a college age couple, so characters in their 20’s. Instead, I found high school age characters with all the wild hormones of that age group. You also get all the...

  • Review: Hot Asset 21 Wall Street, #1

    First of all, reading this reminded me of that TV series “Billions” albeit in a more attractive package! Secondly, to be honest, I had a bit of a rough time starting as my first impression of Ian was not so great. His introduction scene had me gritted...

  • Review: Burning Up Flirting With Fire Book 1

    “Burning Up” had the ingredients I usually like in a book: firefighter, childhood friends, brother’s best friend/best friend’s sister, single dad. There were at least the firehouse camaraderie or close-knit community one grew up in to look forward to....

Love Is the Punch Line by Kathleen Jones

HE COURTED HER WITH PUNCH LINES.

Middle-aged stand-up comedian Josh Steinberg, formerly the star of his own popular TV series, finds himself struggling to keep his career alive, playing seedier and seedier clubs. Plump, balding, and plain-looking, he has never had much luck with women. That is, until Josh meets Holly Brannigan while performing his stand-up act in a comedy club. Holly, an attractive, intelligent, and divorced 50-year-old businesswoman, becomes instantly smitten with Josh and even finds his unconventional looks wildly sexy.

The lonely and vulnerable Josh soon falls in love with Holly, even though she’s not the statuesque type he usually goes for. But Josh, terrified of being hurt and discarded by yet another woman, hides his true feelings for Holly by making fun of her in his stand-up act. And Holly, taking Josh’s words to heart, starts to wonder if she means anything to him at all.
