Anna Stephenson doesn't have time for love. The divorced mother of two is a café manager in a small mountain town, and the start of blackberry season means she's up to her elbows in flour, baking her grandmother's famous blackberry pies. When a sexy, rugged landscaper shows up to work at the café, she knows not to let herself get distracted.
But Deegan James arouses Anna's appetite in ways she's long forgotten. The gruff, mysterious stranger has strong hands and salt-and-pepper stubble she longs to feel against her skin. He's older than she is and just passing through, but Anna has to have him once before he goes. Unless a stolen morning, messy with flour, proves that once isn't enough...
A little naughty, a little sweet, this story comes with a recipe for blackberry pie at the end!
*Previously titled Blackberries in the Morning
His Hands is the story of cafe manager Anna Stephenson, who readers of Above All were briefly introduced to. I will be honest and say her introduction was super quick and she didn't pique my interest. So why read her story? Because I was promised more of Ben and Casey from Above All.
His Hands is classified as a novelette which I guess is basically a short story. For me, I found the story to be too short. I’m a reader who prefers HEA’s or even HFN’s. This story didn't give me that. But, it did give me hope for the future. Since this is such a short story I feel as though I can't really say anything about it. I can say I enjoy Rebecca's writing and I love being able to visualize the picture she paints for readers.

Above All ~ Review
Rebecca Brooks is the author of contemporary romance novels HOW TO FALL and ABOVE ALL. She lives in New York City in an apartment filled with books.
She received a PhD in English but decided it was more fun to write books than write about them. She has backpacked alone through India and Brazil, traveled by cargo boat down the Amazon River, climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro, explored ice caves in Peru, trekked to the source of the Ganges, and sunbathed in Burma, but she always likes coming home to a cold beer and her hot husband in the Bronx.
Her books are about independent women who leave their old lives behind to try something new—and find the passion, excitement and purpose they didn’t know they’d been missing.
