Check OutCheck Out by Debra Parmley

Betsy and Nash’s chance encounter and the possibilities for their relationship kept me coming back every time I put the book down. Debra Parmley found a way to leave me curious about how their relationship may or may not develop throughout the book. While Betsy and Nash were the main characters, Betsy’s sister played a large part in the story and I found myself questioning her character as much as Nash’s. A deeper look into the future for Betsy as well as Nash would have made the book even better, or perhaps they may resurface again in the future.

I really enjoyed this book, even when I eas frustrated but thats what makes a great book. When it can get me to feel any sort of way, thats a win. This can be read as a standalone but i would recommend reading in order as you do see characters from the previous book in here.
I hope we get to see more of this town and these people, I will be first in line to read it.

Check Out (Bobbins Sisters Series Book 1)
By Debra Parmley

I found this book to be entertaining. This story is full of romance, mystery, and wonderful characters. Betsy is a shy librarian that keeps her nose in books most of the time. Nash comes off as intimidating when Betsy first sees him and they don’t start off on the right foot. Betsy soon finds out he’s not as scary as she thinks, or at least she hopes because when she finds herself in a bind he is the one that comes to her rescue. Betsy’s sister comes to visit and brings trouble with her. Betsy will do anything for her sister even if it means she sacrifices her personal life. There is attraction between Nash and Betsy but can they overcome their obstacles? If you want to find out what happens between these two then this is a must read. I recommend this book.

Check Out (Bobbins Sisters Series Book 1) by Debra Parmley is a contemporary romance story

When Nash, a wounded Marine who is rebuilding his life, goes into the library where meek librarian Betsy Bobbin works, she is scared by the attractive guy with an attitude and an eye patch. However, when her car breaks down in the library parking lot as she leaves work during a winter storm, the mystery Marine rushes to her aid. When Betsy and her younger sister Leann get into difficulty at a small country-western bar with a drunk who won’t let Leann alone, he rushes to her rescue once more. Betsy, on the other hand, is terrified by the brawl outside the pub between an enraged Nash and the inebriated.

She’s fallen for the recuperating war veteran, but is it safe to fall for a man suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder? Betsy is divided between two options. Will her fear be overcome by love and faith before it’s too late? Nash has met the woman of his dreams, but his wounds are still open. His ex-fiancé was horrified by his eye patch and scars, so he created drama like honey bees. He’s sworn off ladies and their drama, focusing instead on renovating a one-hundred-year-old 2003 Harley-Davidson Road King and attending college classes. He’s captivated by the charming, quiet librarian Betsy when they meet at the library, and she triggers his protective instincts. If only her sister would cease obstructing her progress.

Betsy is surrounded by real drama as a stalker pursues her sister Leann. When Leann’s tutor pursues her, the girls realize that stalking is a serious problem on college campuses. When Leann’s college stalker arrives in town, Betsy turns to Nash once more. A Marine veteran hero with PTSD, a shy college librarian heroine, her younger, less mature sister, and a college campus stalker star in this military romance with a hint of suspense.

I loved this story and the concept of it as well. I loved every page of it. Every chapter was exciting. This is the first book in the series that I have read; I cant wait to read more.

Betsy Bobbin is a librarian, she lives alone and when she is not at work, loves to curl up with a good book, or on occasion go to a movie or dinner, but she lives a quiet life and she is more than happy with it. Nash Ware is a former Marine who has been recovering from injury and moved to so that he can start afresh, but he has been having troubles and still needs to attend his appointments to try and level things out. One day while Betsy is at work, a very handsome man comes in with an eyepatch and an intense look in his other eye, she is intimidated and attracted to him all at the same time, but she cannot resist talking to him when he comes to the counter, although, she seems to say the wrong things each time, however, Nash is quite taken aback and taken with her at the same time, but he is not feeling his best and so is a little sharp with her, but when she seems to be in trouble in the parking lot after closing time comes around, he feels drawn to helping her out. Betsy has closed up and is heading out into the snow and for her car, but when Nash shows up to help her, she is afraid of the man, but accepts his kindness and help, especially when she tries to drive off and realises that she has a flat tyre, Nash offers her a lift home and so she calls her friend to let her know what is happening as she loads her things into his Jeep. He does exactly as he says he will and makes sure she is safe all the while and even offers to take her to get her car sorted the next day, Betsy declines, but she does swap numbers before he leaves.

As the days pass, Betsy and Nash cannot stop thinking about the other and so asks her out, but things don’t go quite to plan as Betsy has her sister visiting and cannot make it, but the next time he goes to see her at the library, he meets her sister and then overhears their conversation of their evening plans and he thinks this would be a good idea of somewhere to go with his friends, but when he sees the sisters getting into a spot of bother, he comes to Betsy’s rescue again, she is more than thankful and her sister is too, however, the side she sees of Nash scares her into thinking that maybe this is a bad idea. The next day after work, when she confronts her sister about what happened the night before, her sister opens up about why she has come to visit and Betsy is worried about her. Meanwhile, Nash is thinking of ways in which he can convince Betsy that she is the girl for him, however, things never seem to go to plan and the drama that Betsy’s little sister keep bringing is starting to worry Nash and it makes him think of the thing his ex-fiancé said and did and how he doesn’t want that kind of attitude around him anymore, but things happen and wires become crossed and nothing is smooth sailing for a while.

As time goes on and Nash and Betsy try to get to know one another more, more and more drama appears and it looks like nothing is going to stop it, but Nash being the gentleman he is steps up and offers to help out in any way he can, but will the drama stop this couple from making an attempt at a love which could become a future, or will barriers and obstacles keep getting in the way of happiness? This is a sweet romance with a touch of adventure and suspense weaved throughout which will keep you hooked and wanting to know more right up until the end.

A very interesting book that provides some action with secrets involved. Who doesn’t love a little sister that somehow gets her drama right in the middle of your love life? The book followed a very smooth story line. There were two other storylines that seemed to be happening that I would have liked to see more on where they went. Secrets, books and librarians, you do have my attention.

This was a really good story. It was well written and the characters were made really realistic. The author does a great job of described PTSD in our hero Nash and how that and his past experiences impact his life.
Nash is a Marine veteran. He lost his eye and wears an eye patch which makes him self conscious and worried about other impressions of him.
When he meet Betsy the attraction is instant between them but both are unsure and have issues they need to deal with. Nash and his PTSD and anger issues and Betsy and her family problems.
Can they work their way through their problems and get together or will their issues keep pushing them apart.

If you enjoy romance novels that have suspense, obstacles, and multifaceted characters, this is a great book for you. Nash is a retired marine who is working through his issues and attempting to return to civilian life. Betsy is a nerdy librarian who lives in books more than reality. When the two lives collide, sparks fly. However, with their own personal troubles and Betsy’s little sister Leann’s, the attempt at romance is harder than expected. My favorite thing about Check Out is it’s not just a romance novel. It has so many aspects that make it a wonderful read, men and women alike would relate and enjoy this story. Read it, you won’t regret it.

This is the first book I have read from this author and she blew my mind. I love a good military book but this story exceeded all my expectations. This is the first book of the Bobbin sisters series. I was hooked on the first page and I could not stop until the end. I can’t wait to see what this author will write next.

Betsy Bobbins absolutely loves her job. She has always wanted to be a librarian. Betsy is drawn to a handsome man that keeps coming in and getting books from her. She is a little nervous because he wears an eye patch over one eye. Betsy is about to go home in a very bad snow storm but just her luck her car has a flat. She is shocked that the handsome guy helps her and she finds out that his name is Nash. He was a marine that got hurt in the line of duty. Betsy is falling for this guy but she discovers he has PTSD. She knows he would never hurt her but is she strong enough to help him through it? Also Betsy’s little sister has a stalker and she has to turn to Nash for help. Will they be able to find out who it is before it’s too late?
