Not sure its worth 5 Stars!
on 7 January 2013
I can't say I agree with the other 5 star reviews for this book.
It's OK and I'm glad it was a freebie but it hasn't made me want to read the other books in the series.
Jenna Landry is a former rock musician and is getting ready to start a new job and a new life in L.A. She is currently back in her hometown for the summer house sitting for her Auntie. Her next door neighbour is Surgeon, Michael Stone.
Michael has a daughter Claire who has come to stay with him (reluctantly) for the summer. She doesn't live with Michael but with her grandparents. Michael and his daughter don't have the best of relationships and she is not happy that she has had to come and stay with him when she wanted to go away to summer camp. When Claire notices Jenna is his new neighbour and tells him who she is and about her rock star status, to try to improve Claire's mood, he invites Jenna to dinner.
I was slightly put off at Michael making dinner...first he was chopping Radishes for his salad then he was fussing over his dinner table and if it looked OK!! Michael and Jenna are attracted to each other but decide not to have a relationship as she will soon be leaving and going on a reunion tour with her old band. They agree on a one night stand...the book has a few sex scenes and my worries about domesticated Michael were put to rest when he was in the bedroom!!
Obviously after the one night stand they are still madly attracted to each other but must go through the normal 'apart' period before they realise that love can overcome any obstacle and they can be together and have their HEA. Michael also learns how to be a better father.
The book was a bit boring and predictable for me and I didn't really care either way for the H or H.
