Life lesson from Grady Buchanan: If you’re going to fall in love with the untouchable girl in town, don’t hire her as your only employee.
Even after he bungled the interview with Magnolia MacIntyre, he knew better than to hire her. The list of why it’s a bad idea is a long one.
Her father could ruin his fledgling business.

What does Grady do? He offers her the job.
Magnolia knew better than to take it. Normally, she’d make the safe choice, and working for Grady is anything but.
He’s new in town–and entirely too charming.
Her dad will be furious.
She hates the outdoors and working for an outdoor adventure company is not exactly the right fit.
What does she do? She says yes on the spot.
Grady and Magnolia will have to prove to everyone in their life that they’re not crazy. And prove to each other that the list of why it’s a bad idea should be tossed out the window.
For these two opposites, sometimes doing the wrong thing is exactly right.

4 Heart Review by Ashley
Here is a fact: I am not a big fan of insta-love. Here is another fact: the way Karla Sorensen has written the Buchanan curse, makes me not mind one bit. Especially in Steal My Magnolia where she took a hard and honest look at an interracial relationship.
I absolutely adored Grady. His zest for adventure and life. How he put it all on the line to follow his dream. How he was a disorganized mess with a head and heart full of big ideas. Enter Magnolia organizer extraordinaire. The first time Grady saw her, she both settled and stirred something inside him. She was so smart and polite. But underneath that well ingrained southern demeanor was a sassy woman who wanted more than the life thrust upon her.
While the emotions between Magnolia and Grady were intense from the start, it was the slow burn, the anticipation, the longing that kept me riveted. Waiting for the moment they would give in to what they both wanted. And let me tell you, it was so worth the wait.
I loved how Grady saw Magnolia and tried to get her to see herself through his eyes. He pushed her boundaries and brought out a side of her she didn't let out often. She opened his eyes, bringing order to his chaos. And made him realize what he was willing to do for love. Even if it meant walking away and being miserable. GAH! Grady and Magnolia's romance was sharp, playful and I didn't want it to end.
About the Author
Karla Sorensen has been an avid reader her entire life, preferring stories with a happily-ever-after over just about any other kind. And considering she has an entire line item in her budget for books, she realized it might just be cheaper to write her own stories. It doesn’t take much to keep her happy…a book, a really big glass of wine, and at least thirty minutes of complete silence every day. She still keeps her toes in the world of health care marketing, where she made her living pre-babies. Now she stays home, writing and mommy-ing full time (this translates to almost every day being a ‘pajama day’ at the Sorensen household…don’t judge). She lives in West Michigan with her husband, two exceptionally adorable sons and big, shaggy rescue dog.
