Mantrum by Jacob Chance
Released ~ January 9, 2020
Mantrum: An emotional outburst or an expression of anger by an adult man.
I’ve never understood the attraction women have for an alpha male, until I meet single father, Rex Winters.
Tall, chiseled, and persistent, he tries to avoid a parking ticket by asking me out to dinner. But I know men like him. He’s a repeat offender–habitually getting into trouble and always ready to sweet talk his way out of it.
But his charm won’t work on me.
Not when he’s the reason I’m forced to attend a six-week anger management class. And especially not when I find out all six feet two inches of Rex and his two hundred pounds of sexy muscle will be joining me every single time.
It doesn’t matter how much he flirts, or how attracted to him I am. I’m the girl who enforces rules for a living and he’s the guy who breaks them.
Do opposites really attract?
Mantrum is a romcom standalone
I guess we’re about to find out.
*ARC was provided for my honest review*
Mantrum is a standalone romantic comedy that is told in the first-person point of view of Rex and Danika.
Danika is a Parking Enforcement Officer who loves her career. She is no stranger to dealing with people who try to get out of tickets but she did not expect Rex to have a “Mantrum” and slap another guy while she was trying to give him a ticket. Add in more spectators with their phones out video tapping and a power-tripping police officer and Danika loses her cool. Mandated to take an anger management course in order to save her job the last person she expected to walk into her class and be paired with was Rex.
Rex is a single dad who co-owns a contracting company with his brother Adam. Rex tries to sweet-talk Danika into going on a date with him instead of giving him his ticket but when a by-stander refuses to quit going at Danika, Rex’s temper gets the better of him. After Adam bails him out of jail Rex agrees to return to anger management class for the fifth time to try and finally control his anger issues, or as he likes to call them “Mantrums”. Once Rex notices Danika is in the same class he makes it his mission to get her to finally agree to go on a date with him.
Mantrum was the first book that I read by Jacob Chance and I will definitely be reading more of his novels. I enjoyed the witty banter back and forth between Rex and Danika and the way their romance built throughout the book. I would class Mantrum as more of a contemporary romance with some humour sprinkled in then a romance comedy.
