This story includes romance, but it isn't the main focus and the couple doesn't act like horney 14-year old kids. Jenna's relationship with her parents plays a big part in her motivation to remain single. As an adult, she could pick out their good qualities, but growing up, the violence, rage, drunk & disorderly father who stole, was a card shark and lazy doesn't give her the confidence around men she needs. She misses her mom terribly but wishes she had the answers why she stayed with an abusive husband. There had to be more than love, right?
Burke came storming into Jenna's equine facility, well where she worked ready to slash jobs, beautify the area and bring in competent management. It was time to bring the business out of the red and into the black. Another business with great potential, credentialed employees, all the new age equipment to rehab horses and not the freebies the locals were currently getting. Nope, Burke Industries owned and ran the cream of the crop and race horses, Derby winners & thoroughbreds would be the new clients. Mangy ponies and the townsfolk horses (up-to-date on shots or not) would need to go elsewhere or prepare to pay top dollar.
After a day helping the construction crew chop wood, plane it on sight and begin building the new work shed, he called it a day. He still needed to meet with the current manager in the office. What he didn't expect was the beautiful woman with long legs, long blonde hair and a friendly personality, aka Jenna. She mistakes his hard hat and work clothes for a man needing a job. He doesn't correct her, but the following day she meets him and learns he's her new boss. Her disposition remains cheerful and he learns her loyalty to current employees runs deep. This is the beginning of Jenna & Burke getting to know each other at work and later on her porch as he swings by on his way home. After-all, the home he's staying in is a half mile down the gravel road past her place. Her home is an old mobile home and his a mansion. It certainly provides a clue and ties in with the title. Similar to real life and not just in fictional stories, it's best not to judge by exterior appearances alone.
I received an email from Amazon recommending her and thought after reading reviews that I would chance it. I am
So glad I did.
