Knowing Me Knowing You is a light-hearted love story that had me chuckling and was a pleasure to wind down with at the end of the day. Throughout the book I found myself amused at how I could relate with Kate in different ways, such as Motherhood and having an inner independent streak a mile wide. Also, with the wine she got nervous – I must say if I had to hire a gorgeous escort and show up my Dragon-lady boss at a game show in front of my colleagues, it would drive me to drinking, also!
There is a sympathy I felt for Kate in the beginning, knowing she was having a hard time of it being a new single Mom. However, as the story progresses, it becomes more clear why she has her insecurities. I like Kate because she doesn’t blame others for her situation. Although she shows her vulnerability and admittedly acts as a doormat at times, she acknowledges her faults and grows a backbone. She’s a woman most any woman will relate to. Burned out as the little stresses of life build up, and determined to get through it on her own.
Joel is an everyday average hottie in the beginning, until you get to know him – then you’ll absolutely fall in love with his character. He has the one thing Kate wants most in a man that doesn’t include his gorgeous looks and charm. Like many men, he’s unwilling to pour out about his past at first, but when he does it adds to the tenderness of the moment. I like Joel because he is a believable hero and is very genuine and open about his feelings for Kate.
For those interested in knowing the hotness factor, this book is a closed-bedroom story, but very sweet on the intimacy and extremely entertaining! I’m looking forward to delving into another Mandy Baggot book very soon!

Mandy is currently working hard on her second Harper Impulse novel entitled Made in Nashville! Look out for updates on her website, but in the meantime here’s a sneak peek at the blurb to whet your appetite!
Made in Nashville…feel the country!
An on-stage attack left Honor Blackwood with more scars than the one on her face. It’s been ten years since she left her spot as Nashville’s brightest country music star. Is now the time to return? And does she have the courage to do it?
Country rebel and rock star, Jared ‘Jed’ Marshall is hot property on the Tennessee music scene in more ways than one. He’s wild, he’s sexy and everybody wants a piece of him. But when he sets his sights on Honor, is it pure attraction or just distraction on his mind?
Honor’s record label sign the ex-boyfriend that dumped her and suddenly going back to her old life is harder than she thought. Is it what she really wants or should those chart-topping days stay in the past?
When Jared’s secret becomes public knowledge Honor questions her every judgement. Are all the people in her life lying to her to get what they want? And who is really behind the anonymous gifts she keeps getting sent?
Join the country scene, where the off-stage action is as hot as the music!
