OMG I LOVED THIS STORY. I love a book that grabs me in the first paragraph and holds on tight to the very end. I was one of the millions that downloaded THE BOAT BUILDER'S BED and I have been a HUGE van of Ms. Pearson ever since. She writes a GREAT hero, usually a working man but a sense of humor, a great body and TERRIFIC in bed. The heroines are smart, independent and sexy as heck. The story always takes you in and you start believing these people are real, the surroundings exist and you want to be friends with them just to be a part of their wonderful existence. I absolutely adore this author.
the story starts off with the hero being in court trying to win visiting rights to his son. I will admit that this whole plotline made me want to strangle someone. The conception of the child was not a loving relationship situation. it was a conniving woman that wanted to latch on to a rich man and then have him pay for the next 16 years so she can live off her investment. these women are everywhere unfortunately and it is the poor children that pay the price of being a pawn. Sadly, the heroine is her lawyer and she only sees one side. She is constantly blaming him for not keeping it in his pants. NO CONDEMNATION for the mother being a barfly looking to catch some sucker that thinks with his little head at the moment of hitting the sheets. SHE should be held equally responsible but that is rarely the case. Enough on the soap box. the story is a GREAT one.
It is definitely about these two discovering they don't really know as much as they think they do. Judging without all the facts, or facts that you think are true but aren't is not a good thing. lessons for us all. The story is about how they find a way to each other. A great romance and his determination to get what he truly wants. She is hiding a dark secret that is more her own emotional problem than an issue for him. You have to love this guy, all 6'3" of him. He is fun, sexy as all get out, determined and loving. OMG I could just eat him up!! Boy if New Zealand were really full of these kinds of guys I would be moving!! The best heroes come out of New Zealand.
I thoroughly enjoyed this story. I found it fun, sexy (if steamy is a problem for you, be advised. For me, it made the story more true to what really goes on in life-at least with really happy couples)_ A great read and I DEFINITELY recommend it. you cannot go wrong with any of Ms. Pearson's books.
I was not paid for this review. I am not an author nor do I know one. I am not kin to this writer. I am a reader and this is my opinion, nothing more, nothing less. 1/4/17
Another great story from Kris Pearson! This story had been sitting on my Kindle so long that it still had the original title "Hard to Resist" which I started as soon as I bought it. Once I started up again it was hard to put down. Cam and Jossy were such a fun couple to really dig into - Jossy had so many hang ups that went back to her 17 year old self and it was fun to see the way Cam got her to dream of a future that she couldn't see herself seeking.
