Maddy’s Oasis

With an ill mother in need of expensive surgery, Madeleine flies from NYC to the west Texas desert to take on the doomed Desert Oasis resort project in hopes of earning the bonus attached to finishing it on schedule. She soon finds there’s only one thing hotter than the desert sun: Jake, the infuriating Texan whose dislike of the fast-paced city puts them at odds at everything from her high-heels to her to-do lists. When the Oasis reveals its dark secret, Maddy finds she must choose between money and those she cares about.

Good book
By Tricia Book (4.0 out of 5 stars) on September 24, 2013
This was a good book. Glad it wasn't a cliff hanger and it was a complete novel! I would recommend it to anyone!

I love the main characters and how the tension is built ...

This is surprisingly different from a lot of Ford's books. It's not overly romance-driven, and there is nothing paranormal about it. I love the main characters and how the tension is built between them. The big secret builds throughout the book and the end to it is interesting. I wish there were a little more at the end of this book, and a little more detail throughout. But all in all, this is a nice addition to Ford's collection.

picked this up when it was free for a quick read. it is a great little cheap romance novel. but i am glad i got it for free because i wouldnt have actually bought this with my hard earned money.

Great read

I just loved the romance between Jake and Maddie. This was a great read and I can recommend it highly. Have read a few books lately by this author and will seek out more.

Liked the integrity of the main characters
By TJ (4.0 out of 5 stars) on October 26, 2013
This was a surprising read compared to other Lizzy Ford books because it is a more traditional romance, I liked it a lot.Maddy is a confident, honest, strong character with lots of integrity. She doesn't back down from a challenge that seems impossible, even when it becomes clear that she just cannot meet the deadlines her employer unrealistically insists upon.Jake has the same good qualities as Maddy, he can't fully understand why Maddy would push so hard to finish the project in an unreasonable time until he finally learns what is motivating her to drive forward so insistently.I liked how the story ended, and yet, I hope the story is not over yet. They were really just beginning, a sequel to tie up their story together would be something I would definitely read.

I love lizzy ford!

Who doesn't love a Texas hottie in cowboy boots. It was a quick easy read. Definitely worth picking up! It's not the her usual paranormal romance but I love her writing, no matter.

A sweet little romance
By Amanda S (5.0 out of 5 stars) on September 29, 2013
This was nice change of pace I'm not big in to romance book but this was short and sweet. I really enjoyed Maddy's story line and why she took the job she did. there are some holes in the story but lets hope Lizzy writes another book to fill them in. the Love between Maddy and Jake is there from the start. I like how they get under each other skin. This is a really enjoyable book. While it does have some dark parts this just a feel good romance.. sit back and enjoy!!

Although this book is short and much different from her other books, I really LOVED Maddy's Oasis. I like that Maddy is willing to make something out of nothing and work her hardest to get it where it needs to be because she has a mother that she needs to care for. And, I like that, even though Jake tries to paly the tough guy, he still tries to accommodate Maddy in what she is trying to do. They fit so well together. Love the characters and storyline. Wish for more of the book, like for the author to make it a series. I'd really like to see what more happens with Jake and Maddy, the family, and the resort! LOVED this book!
