Television writer Kate Meredith is having the day from hell. First, her show was canceled. Then her fiance left her for another woman. Now, she's courting disaster by flirting with the hard-bodied, tattooed, motorcycle-riding bad boy of her dreams - who also happens to be the man who fired her.
If people had told Ian Hart that he'd be firing Kate in the morning and dancing with her that night, he'd have laughed in their faces. Despite her leggy body, the sweet but geeky redhead isn't his type. At least, that's what he thinks before spotting her in a club wearing an outfit that reveals her surprisingly delectable assets.
Before he knows it, Ian becomes Kate's knight on a shining motorcycle, escorting her home to prevent her from running off with some random guy. But when the night is over, "Little Miss Boring" and her sexy former boss just might turn their oh-so-wrong feelings into something very right.
I loved Strom's first book and numerous ones after, so it was no wonder I picked this up expecting everything I loved in her other stories. A sweet romance, lovable characters, a fun plot line, and the happily ever afters that I crave.
Throw in a feisty heroine and a bad boy turned good with a heart of gold and an adorable nephew to boot and you have a winner.
How can anyone not love a book that references Doctor Who and the X-Men. My inner nerd was all over it and even though I know nothing about D & D it was fun to see it referenced (and even played) in the book.
I really liked Ian and Kate and their love story was a good one. This didn't get too heavy or deep but it wasn't a light fluff read either. It was a nice balance of romance with real life circumstances and issues.
I completely gobbled this up and was sad to see it end.
