The Derby Girl

The Derby Girl is the 2nd book in the Getting Physical series from Tamara Morgan. The publisher is Carina Press and the release date was August 26, 2013. From the Carina Press website.~

Book two of Getting Physical

Roller derby girl Gretchen "Honey Badger" Badgerton lives in the moment, no apologies. Like every woman in Pleasant Park with a pulse, she finds Dr. Jared Fine irresistible, but she's taken by surprise when her unattainable new neighbor asks her out.

On paper, Jared is the perfect man: gorgeous, wealthy and charitable. But his golden image is just that, and opening an upstate practice is a welcome chance to start a new life. When Gretchen stops to help him with a flat tire, he's intrigued by her feisty attitude—and her sexy body art. There's something refreshing about being with a take-charge woman who doesn't expect him to be anything but himself.

Though Gretchen is hesitant to shatter Jared's "bad girl" illusion of her, she has to face facts: she's fallen for the good doctor. She's used to putting everyone else's needs before hers, but as their relationship heats up, can she handle having someone take care of her for a change?

I loved book one of the Getting Physical series and was excited to read another book from Tamara Morgan. I really love her voice and she writes some pretty memorable characters. I was approved for a review copy thanks to the publisher through NetGalley.

Let me just say I love Gretchen. She is such a fun character. I mean, hello, she plays on a roller derby team. I'll be honest, I never really got her attraction to Jared. I also struggled with this book, because I didn't like the hero. I kept reading because I loved Gretchen and wanted to see if Jared would finally be worthy of Gretchen. While I will never love Jared like I do the other characters in this series, he did finally step up and prove he truly loves Gretchen. Again, I love Ms. Morgan's voice and look forward to reading other books from her in the future.
