All You Can Handle (Moments in Maplesville #5) by Farrah Rochon #AARomance #ContemporaryRomance

This book was an awesome way to start off my 2016 reading year. The good news is that she has so many books written for me to read.

The Blurb
Ian Landry knows a thing or two about responsibility. He put his dream of owning a motorcycle shop on hold and steers clear of romantic entanglements while he raises his baby sister. But when the building he’s coveted for his bike shop suddenly becomes available, he can’t allow the opportunity to pass him by. And when he spots a beautiful stranger sitting at the bar of his favorite hangout, Ian decides it can't hurt to have a little fun…if only for one night. Only he doesn’t count on his smoking-hot one-night stand showing up on his doorstep the next morning. 

The sleepy town of Maplesville is only supposed to be the first stop on Madison “Sonny” White’s new journey to becoming a professional pastry chef. After breaking free from the shackles of her former life, she isn’t looking to get tied down anytime soon. But the appeal of this quaint town on a Louisiana bayou draws Sonny in more than she could have ever anticipated, and the attraction between her and the hottie who turns out to be her new landlord cannot be denied. 

Love was the last thing they were looking for. But their chance meeting kick-starts a high-octane rush of desire that gives Ian and Sonny all they can handle. 

My Review
Breaking free from a life that once held her captive, Sonny becomes her own woman. This means following her heart and her libido.

I’ve read the four previous books in this series and knew Ms. Rochon could set it off, but I’ll admit that this was the hottest book of them all. The story was deep, with Ian having issues with his family and having to raise his baby sister (which in and of itself is a responsible type of sexy) all while trying to achieve his dream of owning his own his own bike shop. Sonny had her own family problems that made me happy that she’d found herself.

Their conversations had me chuckling. Although they both had good reasons for not entering into a relationship even though their attraction stated otherwise.

This is a standalone, but having read the others, I liked reconnecting with the characters from the previous books in the series.

I give this novella five out five cake shaped chocolate bars (bet you thought I'd shape them like motorcycles).

I purchased this book from Amazon.


  1. Great review! This sounds like a fantastic book, and an overall great series, too. Glad your first read of 2016 ended up being such a winner!

    1. Thanks, Heather. I have a feeling it's going to be a fantastic reading year.

  2. I enjoyed this one too. I wish the writing had been a little more layered but it was still pretty enjoyable :)

    1. Thank you for teaching me something new. I never knew what 'layering' was until you mentioned it and I went to look it up. As an author I have a lot of learning to do.


I love reading your comments.
