If you're looking for fun, sexy chick-lit that contains feisty females and infuriatingly handsome men then this could be the book for you.
Rival journalists Dylan and Veronica (Ronnie) have been challenging each other to madcap dares in their respective newspaper columns for a long time now, but when Dylan makes a somewhat sexist crack, avid knitter Ronnie hits onto the perfect plan: Dylan must learn how to knit. Dylan of course, can't back down- even if his masculine pride is at stake, he's not going to turn away from such a dare--and surely he's man enough to knit a scarf! Ronnie however is unwittingly pulled into being his knitting coach, and as she starts spending a little more time with Dylan and gets to know him as a person, she can't help but think he's not the arrogant jack-ass she's always thought he was...
A fabulously funny read with scorching sex-scenes to boot (though they do seem a little unbelievable in places--- HOW many times in one night?!). I just adored Dylan and Ronnie, who is actually much more vulnerable deep down than she initially appears. Their friends too, as secondary characters are written really well- I particularly like the hints of a back story between Jenna and her ex-husband, who feature in the follow on story and which I can't wait to read.
I've read a lot of what I've dubbed as `knit-lit' recently, but this one was one of the best--even if you aren't a knitter then that doesn't matter, it isn't a huge part of the story, more of a sub-plot if I'm honest. There is however, a knitting pattern for `Dylan's scarf' at the end of the book which is very cute. I also wouldn't call this a `romance' per se, which comes down to the naughtiness aspect of the plot- but if you're a fan of raunchy chick-lit then believe me, this is a must read.
