Seth Rafferty meets Heather at a benefit dinner and realizes immediately that Heather is sizing him up based on his occupation. So he doesn't tell her the whole truth and lets her assume that he's a carpenter because she's already written him off. And despite the contempt of them not matching by Heather's social standards, there's an undeniable attraction that keeps pulling them back together and asking for more trouble. I really enjoyed that push and pull dynamic between them because it was hot and magnetic. It also peeled back the layers hiding the Heather underneath as she slowly comes to a realization bit by bit about how she judges other people. I didn't think like I'd like Heather from when I met her in Sex Symbol, but she's rather vulnerable and has a bit of anxiety that she has to smother down quite a bit. Seth really brings out the confidence in her and helps her see the world with clearer eyes where one's past is nothing to be ashamed of. I loved Seth, more than Micah actually, because he was so down to earth and forthright (except about one thing). The tables turned a few times in the story, which was great, because it forced the characters to face the truth no matter how unpleasant it might be since the truth is what also sets them free.
Heather is an A List Hollywood actress with a troubled past--one she wants to leave right there -- in the past. She would rather not ever have to acknowledge it. However, her past makes her a different person in the now in some ways. She DOES try to help those who may have been in her shoes, but she also is looking for a future with someone who will never, ever remind her of her past, thus making her a snob to some degree.
Seth is also successful in his own right. He has worked hard to become who he is but conversely, doesn't deny his past because that makes him who he is and also because, he is proud of what he has become. Heather, however, makes an assumption upon meeting Seth that causes Seth to try to teach her a lesson.
There are many lessons taught and learned in this book and top of the list is to never, ever judge a book by it's cover. The beauty of this story is how each of them learn to let others in, how to deal with their demons, and how to move forward despite difficult beginnings. Plenty of steam, love and quirky fun moments to be had.
Heather Wainwright is one of the hottest actresses in Hollywood right now and she has a bit of a Diva reputation. There's so much more to her than what the pubic sees but Heather doesn't let anyone know that. Except for her assistant. There's a reason why she is the way she is and we finally get to figure it out all thanks to the hot carpenter guy that she meets and becomes instantly attracted to and ends up his enemy.
The moment Seth Rafferty locks his eyes on Heather, he knows he's a goner. The problem is, she's a complete Diva and he can't understand why he is so attracted to someone yet at the same time he wants to strangle her. All he knows is that he's ready to find out just who Heather is, no matter what it takes.
The tug of war between Seth and Heather was just down right delicious. The sexual tension between the two while teetering on that love/hate line has you glued to the book, wanting to see what's going to happen with them.
I'll be honest and say that I didn't really connect with the characters as much as I would have liked. I liked the story and it kept me interested, I just wasn't fully invested in them emotionally. Even though this considered a light read for me because of how much dark I like, I still wish I had a deeper connection. I did feel like I connected a bit more to Seth than Heather. Probably because of his alpha bedroom tendencies sucked me in. Haha
Overall, I enjoyed this book. It's a fun, easy read with a seriously hot and sexually demanding hero. It's pretty light and doesn't have much angst. Normally I crave angst but I didn't feel like I needed it here.
