Falling for Max

Max Crawford has reached the point in life where he's starting to think about settling down. Unfortunately, he's always been a little awkward when it comes to social interactions, and working from home doesn't help. He spends so much time alone, painting beautiful, historically accurate model trains that half of Whitford has begun to joke that he may be a serial killer. Not exactly prime husband material.
Tori Burns has found happiness in Maine, thanks in large part to her shifts at the Trailside Diner. She likes the work, and she loves the local gossip. When shy, geeky Max Crawford becomes a regular, she's intrigued. When she finds out he's in the market for a wife, she's fascinated…and determined to help.
Molding Max into every woman's dream turns out to be much easier than expected. But has Tori's plan worked a little too well? As she turns his comfortable life all sorts of upside down, she'll have to find a way to show just how she's fallen for him…the real him.

I love the Kowalski series from Shannon Stacey so much! I was lucky enough to get an ARC for review from the publisher through NetGalley. 
While I've loved all the books in this series, Falling for Max is my favorite to date! Max Crawford is such a fun characters. He is absolutely adorable and I really wanted to give him a hug through much of the book. I love that he sets his mind to find a wife and isn't really sure how to go about doing it.
Enter Tori Burns, who never wants to get married, but wants to help Max find the right woman. I loved that both Tori and Max were attracted to one another. I especially loved that Tori understood Max and found all his little quirks endearing. Add in the smoking hot chemistry between them, and I loved them as a couple

While I'm sad to see the Kowalski series come to an end, I love how Shannon Stacey wrapped it up and know these books will be re-read over and over again.
