Another great story by Jenna!
on March 23, 2010
This is the third book I've read by Jenna-Bayley Burke and I think this is my favorite so far! It's hard to tell though, because I've enjoyed everything I've read by her. What I think she excels at is mixing the lust, romance and love all together and making it work! This is the story of Sophie and David. Sophie is a cute girl who seems to think never of herself but only those around her. David is a strong man, quite successful but definitely scarred by some events in his past. He is a tall man who has a rule of dating only women who are at least 5'10" and have blonde hair. He NEVER stays over, and NEVER goes for round two. Sophie is a tiny yoga instructor and also the sister of Daphne, David's best friend, Craig's wife. Daphne has long despised David for his womanizing ways. Sophie has had a crush on David for as long as Daphne and Craig have been together. She is a 26 year old virgin, just waiting for David to come along. They get together quite by accident--Daphne is pregnant and having a difficult pregnancy and must be on bed rest. Normally she and her husband, Craig, teach the yoga class that helps intrepret the Kuma Sutra to committed couples. Exit Daphne and Craig for the class, enter Sophie and David. Right from the get go David is attracted to Sophie even though she doesn't fit into his rules. From the very beginning of the story there is constant contact with Sophie and David. Even though Sophie is terrified of having her heart broken, and David is terrified of letting someone in who throws his carefully planned life in a whirlwind they do work together to be together. It's a great story of friendship, of sibling love and of misguided parental love. If you've never read anything by Jenna this would be the perfect book for you to start with! And I'm sure, if you're like me, you'll want to read everything by her. As this is a Samhain published book there is a bit more spice to it than most contemporary love stories, but make no mistake this is a tastefully written story of deep love and emotional committment.
