This was a very good story. I like Janelle Denison stuff.
It was along the lines of Lori Foster's "Annie Get Your Guy"... sort of... Here's my own version of what this story was about~
Jace Rutelage is a long time friend of Leah Burton's family. He's had the hots for her for awhile now, but with an alcoholic mother, and having a father who skipped town when Jace was just a kid, it's caused Jace to be weary and insecure, esp. where relationships are concerned. Even though he's brought himself out of the slums, owning his own thriving garage, he still feels unworthy of the classic beauty Leah.
But when she comes to him with a favor, a favor that has his insides heating and his blood pumping, he's more than willing to prove he's the man for the job.
Leah has gotten a marriage proposal. She should be thrilled, elated, to have a handsome man like Brent ask her to be his wife. But, when there's not even the least hint of sexual sparks she's worried. Worried she's lacking in what it takes to turn a man on. So, she enlists the help of her good friend Jace. What Jace doesn't know is that this is her chance to quench a thirst that Leah's had for the sexy rugged man for as long as she could remember.
But when her heart becomes involved, Leah is even more reluctant to marry cold-fish Brent. What's a girl to do? Steal an episope from the book "Sexcapades" and perform for Jace, in the hopes that she'll be all the woman he could ever want... of course!
This was a fun story with some sexy love scenes and endearing characters...
