Review: Confessions of a Small Town Librarian by A. MacEwan

I was in the middle of beta reading a very intense book, when I decided I needed a break. Since the buss around Confessions of a Small Town Librarian had been huge and very positive, I had (of course) bought it, but hadn’t had the chance of sitting down to read it. Thinking it would give me a breathing room from my other read, I settled in.

I was soooo wrong. Confessions of a Small Town Librarian didn’t give me a break from the intensity but ADDED to it.

Anna McCall is the town’s librarian, currently going through a rough divorce (from an even rougher marriage), he days is filled with her work, Duchess (her dog) and her best friend; Megan. Megan is determined to bring Anna out of her shell, to make her have some fun, make her forget about her abusive, soon-to-be ex-husband.

One day at work Anna discovers something amazing in the archives; journals and pictures dated back to the late 1800’s. Before Anna gets a chance to dig deeper into them, Megan comes by the library and drags her out; time for some girl time. This time they’re going to a bar to have fun, maybe a few drinks and some pool.

What Anna doesn’t count on is running straight into Ben. He makes her blood boil by just looking at her, and the attraction is mutual. And it’s just getting started.

Wow. Just… wow. Reading this because it would be a reprieve from an intense book was the WORST mistake I made. Confessions of a Small Town Librarian is intense, toecurling, sexy, hot, sweet, romantic and kick-ass. I loved every second.

The growing relationship between Anna & Ben is sweet, and even though both are confused by what is happening, they choose to accept it. Sometimes we all have to listen to our hearts.

But Ada didn’t “just” write smexy stuff. (Do NOT get me wrong, the sex scenes are HOT!) She also puts a story into it, breathes life to her characters, makes them real, and twists things. Just as much as she made me blush from all the good sexy stuff, she made me laugh and cheering for them all.

Confessions of a Small Town Librarian is a book that gives the genre erotica pride. It is why I read erotica from time to time, because even though there are a lot of books out there (both erotica, and non-erotica) who is really, really bad, THIS is a hidden gem, and a pleasure to read. I can barely wait until February 21, where the next book will be released!

Join small town librarian, Anna McCall on an incredible journey full of temptation, romance and confessions as she uncovers some secrets that could change her town forever. Along the way she meets the hot and hunky Ben who shows her that librarians can be so nice at being naughty too.

She is currently writing a historical romance based off her family history and her hometown.

Ada has been working on preserving her hometown’s history while serving the public as a librarian where she focuses a lot of her time on specialized teen services and fundraising.
