Bad luck follows her in that she not only ends up having to replace a tire, but finds that her bank has frozen her account for unusual activity and she cannot pay for the tire. The shop owner graciously allows her to leave with a promise to pay. When she goes back, she meets the owner's son, Clay.
Clay is helping at his dad's shop while his dad recuperates from surgery. His dad wants him to run the shop, but it's just not his thing. He works as an IT professional and makes good money developing websites. He has done some bad things in his past that ended a good friendship, and is now trying to do things in the right way.
There is an instant attraction with Courtney and Clay meet, and the story goes from there after he offers Courtney a job to answer phones and schedule appointments.
This was a book that was hard for me to put down. I liked the characters, I liked the flow of the story. It was one of those books where as you read it, and the characters get to know each other, and are drawn to each other - you feel it yourself. You feel yourself wanting that kiss. Wanting that touch. Then, when it happens, you sigh with happiness because you can almost feel that touch on your skin as well.Read more ›
This was by far the hottest CH book I’ve read and if you have come to know her writing style as I have, you know she stepped way out of her comfort zone with this smokin baby!
Clay Bradshaw drew me into his world from the moment Courtney stepped into his fathers shop while he was helping his dad out when he got injured.
I cant seem to move on and have had to revisit many of my favorite “scenes” because I miss him already! He’s a dominate tender lover that will be the reason for many book boyfriend tug-of-wars.
Courtney Grayson has been burned and is in no hurry to jump into another relationship. She is determined to play the field so maybe Someday she will find a good guy. But she never new what hit her when Clay Bradshaw’s world got turned upside down the day Courtney walked into his dads shop. He was a man with a mission and found himself for the first time thinking of “the other side of SOMEDAY”.
What gave this one an edge was the well developed secondary characters who added some depth, to an otherwise sweet but formulaic romantic farce.
Something else I liked was that the lead female- Courtney has some gumption. Badly burned by infidelity she trust her heart and her instinct to give a new man a chance. A lot of people would let fear and bitterness take over and miss opportunities. Not only that she recognizes that all relationship need boundaries and even though she soon gives her body, and heart to Clay, but holds out for some personal space. Something she hadn't done in her previous relationship.
So it gets five stars for breaking the mold of this ilk of fiction.
Things that could have been better-
Sentence structure. The author writes in short, clipped sentences that in many cases could have been comma'd and strung together to make the verbiage flow a little better.
The sex got very graphic and repetitious, and in some cases bordered on pornographic. The unrestrained use of four-letter words was also a turn-off. The amount of bad language was excessive and gratuitous here. Be warned!
All in all a pretty decent tale that I enjoyed, comments above not-withstanding.
Then she doesn't want anything out of the condo. Not even her clothes, toothbrush, etc. comes with her. Really? Would anyone give up everything they owned because he was cheating? So for days she stays in bed crying. She happens to meet the bachelor of the year at a bar and he seems to take a shine to her. Then she meets a guy in a garage helping out his dad. This is going to be our hero. At 33 he doesn't seem to be what you would think a 33 year old, owns his own business, etc. would be. Even his language was a turn off for me. He is going to the grocery store to buy "s***". It seemed that was every other word in his head. Just a turn off for me. I just couldn't get a handle on these two.
I think younger readers will relate more to it. Nothing wrong with the story, just wasn't for me.
