Chelsea Gardner has made a list outlining what qualities her perfect man must embody. She's tired of dating men that don't put her first and she thinks that if she sticks to her list, she'll find that perfect guy. But when do things ever go as you plan?
When her friend, Sebastian (Bash)Palmer catches wind of her list, he tells her that he'll help her find a nice guy that fits all her criteria. What he hasn't said is that *he* would like to be that man. The two share a steamy kiss that leaves Chelsea confused and super turned on. Bash is all wrong on paper, so how could it feel so right?
Between Bash and her other friends, they all set her up on various dates and while some go well and others completely bomb, the bottom line is she doesn't feel nearly the fireworks she does with Bash. What starts out as just sex, transitions into a slow progression into dating. Will these two be able to get out of their own way and see what has been right in front of them the whole time, or will the list make Chelsea turn tail and run?
Jaci Burton once again creates characters you want to root for and you hope they find their HEA. I'd definitely recommend picking this one up.
Bash was married when he was younger and has sworn off ever getting married again. He's not broken from the experience he just doesn't think he has anything to offer a women. Chelsea is a serial dater who always finds her dates lacking. She's so fed up that she creates a list of the attributes of her perfect man. Needless to say, Bash does not meet any of her criteria. Or does he?
Honestly, both of these characters are kind of childish and thick headed. At times I wanted to slap them both. The list didn't really create any drama nor did it cause any deep conversations between Bash and Chelsea. I wanted the two of them to have to work through their pasts to end up together but instead they kind of slid into place. So it was more of a click then a bang!
So why did I give the book 4 out of 5 stars. First of all, it's a really readable book. It's got a good, fast flow. I read it on vacation and the flow was perfect for a little bit of relaxation. Second, this book keeps all of the characters from the prior three stories around. I'm not talking about brief mentions of the other characters either. We get a wedding, a vacation and a bbq. Lots of good times with good friends. Third, Bash. That's it, just Bash. Oh yeah, and his dog Lou. Lou might be the most perfect dog in a book every. I looked forward to every single Lou moment.
I plan to read the next book in the series. I recommend this book to anyone who has already started the series. I don't think you should start the series with this book (I suggest you read the series in order). I recommend this series to readers who like contemporary, small town romance. If you like mature characters then this might be the story for you!
"I promise I won't laugh."
She thrust the notebook at him.
He scanned the list, the corners of his mouth ticking up.
He held up his hand. "I'm not laughing. But yeah, I can see why I'm not the man for you." page 24
After spending an hour doing liquor inventory, he looked down to find Lou asleep on his foot, which seemed to be her favorite nap spot. page 119

I so can't wait for "Make Me Stay". Hurry up Christmas! (Can't believe I said that)
I did get tired of hearing about "the" list. After awhile it just got old.
And the book was moving along at a great place and then I felt it bogged down with the whole wedding of Des and Logan. It just seemed like it took over forever before getting back to Bash and Chelsea. I felt myself getting a little bored.
I liked the book but I did find myself skipping over parts to get to the main story.
