Haley is always trying to get Eddie to notice her, but for now she’s stuck babysitting his daughter. She’s about to open Tempting with her own line of sexy lingerie. That alone sets the sensual tone for the story.
Being capable with one’s own hands and fix anything is very HOT. And that was Eddie. Too bad he’s only interested in no-strings affairs ever since his wife left him with a kid to raise. Still, there’s no denying the sexual tension between Haley and Eddie.
Author knows how to write compatible characters with steamy love scenes. Her characters feel real. Although this is book 5 in the Harpers Crossing series, this is the second book I’ve read. These novels are good, but I wouldn’t read the entire series because even though each one features a different couple, they all pretty much follow the same pattern: boy and girl hot for each other but for some reason can’t be together, tension breaks with steamy sex, a misunderstanding, and then they live happily ever after. These stories are good to read once in a while though.
My rating: 4 stars
