Rough Around the Edges Meets Refined Blog Tour

Rough Around the Edges

Welcome to the blog tour for Rough Around the Edges Meets Refined by Rachael Anderson!

Rough Around the Edges

For Noah Mackie, life is finally back on track. He has a great support system, a promised promotion is on its way, and he's finally getting the hang of this single father thing. But when the job falls through and his neighbor's matchmaking efforts become more aggressive, Noah is in for yet another unwanted detour. With his career and two spirited daughters to worry about, he doesn't have time for dating—especially not someone like Cassie Ellis, his girls' beautiful and sophisticated dance instructor, who is about as open and approachable as a brick wall. Rough around the Edges Meets Refined is about two people who think they know exactly what they want but who have no idea what they really need. It's about learning that people aren't always what they seem and that sometimes life’s detours take you exactly where you need to go.

Author Rachael Anderson

USA Today bestselling author, Rachael Anderson is the mother of four and is pretty good at breaking up fights, or at least sending guilty parties to their rooms. She can't sing, doesn't dance, and despises tragedies. But she recently figured out how yeast works and can now make homemade bread, which she is really good at eating.


Cassie is trying to escape her past disastrous marriage. Noah is trying to just get by as a single father of two daughters. When their friends try to set them up, neither of them are interested. However, each of them has a skill that the other one needs. When they begin to work together, they begin to feel a pull towards each others. The real question is whether they will let their pasts overcome their potential future.

This book was a great read. I loved that Cassie was an Irish step dance teacher. That was really fun the way that was incorporated into the story. I thought Noah was a great guy too, but I could see why Cassie's past was really holding her back. I've known people coming out of abusive marriages (and let's face it, that's what Cassie had), and it is truly difficult for them to get away from the mindset they had while being abused. I felt like that part of Cassie's story really rang true. 

I felt like Noah really handled the situation well, as much as possible anyway. Watching these two work through everything was fun. There was just enough conflict to be interesting, but not enough to bog the story down in unnecessary problems. This is a sweet romance, and a fairly quick read. It will make you cheer for these two characters to get together too.
