Unassuming yet lush in emotion and conflict, Barbara and Ryder's story drew me in right from the start. A successful woman who hides deep insecurities is swept off her feet by a seemingly laid-back man who, however, is fiercely loyal to his hometown and his family. And Barbara threatens both. The tension is there, the stakes are high, yet the authors' writing flows effortlessly, making this an easy read.
And hot. Shower-worthy hot.
This is a good, solid story that reads fast and was hard to put down. There were a few minor editing issues to do with extra or missing words, but nothing that was more than a slight hiccup. I plan to purchase the next Flirting with Curves story featuring Ryder's brother and look forward to reading it.
Ryder Bishop has lived in Ocean Crest his entire life, high school sport jock that all the girls were in love with, and in the popular crowd in school. He now owns a motorcycle shop called Speed Demons Bike Repair, but lately with more shops in town closing and people moving away, he will take any jobs that come his way to help pay the rent. His father is the manager of Ocean Crest Factory the main employer of the people in town and as the company has slowly decreased production at the factory more people have lost their jobs.
Barbara Johnson aka " Bobby Jean" grew up in Ocean Crest, she always felt like she was invisible to everybody and left town to go to college and to get away from her alcoholic mother. Now she is the reorganization guru for DCD subsidiaries and she has been sent back to her home town to shut the factory down and sell it. Barbara still owns her mother's small jersey shore bungalow and since she is going to be in town for awhile as she closes the plant down she has decided to spruce it up.
When Barbara enquires at the factory about a handyman to help do things for her, Ryder's father gives her Ryder's phone number. Barbara keeps her real identity a secret, so when Ryder shows up to discuss her plans, he thinks she looks familiar but can't figure out why. Barbara has difficulty talking at first in Ryder's presence she is so taken by his good looks and muscular physique. Ryder is also captivated by Barbara's curves something that he has never been attracted to in other women he has dated before. As these two begin to work together to spruce up her house their sizzling chemistry draws them together, and although Barbara is the enemy, Ryder is surprisingly attracted to her. There are twists and turns that you will not expect as well as some suspense and acts of revenge that will add some intensity to this story. Loved the passion and real life situations. It kept me reading to the wee hours of the morning I could not put it down. Will Barbara Johnson close the factory and leave? Will they get their HEA? You will have to read this to find out.
Received a copy in exchange for an honest review.
She comes back to town years after she escaped as a successful woman who must shut down the factory that is the last business keeping the shore town alive. She tries to find a way to bring another company in to bring life into the town, but a series of arson fires threatens the deal and her life.
Meanwhile Barbara and Ryder fall deaper in love even tho people think she is the enemy of the town.
A real page turner, I like the cute little shore town the the authors have created and would like to read more books in the series
