Book Review: Anchor - Book 3 the Wake Series by M. Mabie


by M. Mabie

Anchor...LIVE NOW.

I believe in love at first sight.
Now I know soulmates exist. 

Nothing has ever been easy for us.
Every fight, every struggle, has been worth it. 

I’m stubborn, but what woman isn’t?
She’s hard work and I love the overtime. 

He’s frustrating and unpredictable. I hope he never changes.
I love driving her crazy. That’s half the fun. 

Lou’s sexy curls.
Honeybee’s pink nose. 

He still looks at me like I’m precious and unflawed.
She treats me like I’m the center of her world. 

Our future will be full of happiness.
Despite everything, we’re two of the lucky ones. 

I took the bait.
She was a lucky catch. 

He is the wind in my sail.
She’s the anchor that grounds me. 

The wake our love made is beautiful.
Every day I thank God for her. 

No matter the hurdles, we’ve jumped them side-by-side.
No matter the obstacles, we’ve made it through together. 

For better or for worse, I’d do it again.
I’ll love and protect her all the days of my life. 

We made it.
We always will. 

My Rating:

Favorite Quotes:

“If there were a pill I could take to make him disappear from my memory, I’d take two just in case.”

“I don’t ever want my stuff to be separate from your stuff.  My stuff likes your stuff.  Our toothbrushes are now having an affair.  We can’t split them up.”

“And there were times I thought I’d love you alone for the rest of my life.  Loving you forever would have happened whether I got to keep you or not.”

“He lay down next to me, but I feared for his health if he got much closer.  I was fairly positive my breath could peel paint.  I brought the sheet up to my mouth to spare him.”

“I’m a f* salesman.  I could sell ketchup popsicles to a nun in white gloves – with a straight face.” 

“We were perfectly imperfect.”

My Review:

I can only imagine that M. Mabie is naughty fun to be around, and she has certainly brought her A-game with Anchor.  I found this book to be perfection.  After torturing her characters with an all-consuming passion and the worst of luck through the first two books, she has finally turned them into united allies and written them a fun and playful love story that is my favorite kind of book - sassy, sweet, and steamy.  The writing was crisp, smart, humorous, and sensual.  I enjoyed every word on every page and was highly entertained throughout.  I doubt I would ever tire of reading about this resilient, mischievous, and vibrant couple.  Ms. Mabie’s levity and clever wit kept me smirking, her sensual scenes had me gasping, but she squeezed my heart, stung my eyes, and stole all the breath from my lungs with the very moving letter from Casey’s mother.  All the books in this series have been exceptionally well written, but Anchor is by far my favorite.

M. Mabie usually doesn't speak in third-person. She promises.
