The Art of Romance by Kaye Dacus

Published: 2011

Publisher:  Barbour Books

Series: Matchmakers(Book 2)

Goodreads Summery: Dylan Bradley, who once illustrated steamy romances under the name Patrick Callaghan, has moved into his grandparent’s guest house in Nashville. Caylor Evans, having once written titillating novels under the penname Melanie Mason, lives with her grandmother. When their lives collide, due to the machinations of meddling matriarchs, the pasts of Dylan and Caylor threaten to derail their futures. Will they accept each other for who they now are—and once were? Or will they never discover the true art of romance?

In book two we get to hear the story of Caylor. She gave up some of her freedoms a few years back to move in with her grandmother. She is a college professor and a writer and she figures she will never marry. The Matchmakers(The grandma’s of the main characters) still want to see some great grandbabies so they are still working hard to get their grandkids married off. Dylan has come home after he is fired from his old job due to having an relationship with his boss. He moves  into an apartment above his grandparents garage. He soon finds himself meeting Caylor and finds himself attracted to her but will both of their pasts cause them to miss a chance at love?

I enjoyed this book a little more then the first. I felt the characters had a lot more depth and I also enjoyed getting to know the grandmothers a little more as well.  I thought the storyline of how these two where connected in the past was a neat twist. There where parts that dragged a little for me but over all it was a good read. The more I read from this author the more I like her. I am looking forward to the 3rd book of this series due out this fall.
