Contains a man who's willing to do anything for the perfect woman, an RV and surprise road-trip to help him prove it, and a woman who's wondering just what the hell she's gotten into.
A girl, a guy, a set of handcuffs… What more could happily ever after possibly need?
Luke Hamilton’s requirements for the perfect woman are straightforward: live, work and play in his beloved hometown—and get along with his mother. Dr. Kat Dayton’s got it all. And Luke’s noticed. It’s obvious to him that his long-time friend belongs with him, especially after the world-rocking kiss she lays on him at his birthday party.
While Kat can’t deny she’s imagined a kiss like that—and more—for years, she’s less convinced they’re destined for happily ever after. Still, Luke figures that’s nothing a friendly kidnapping and a three-day road trip won’t fix.
Kat would love to let Luke in, but if he discovers the truth—that committee meetings bore her to tears and she’d rather have a root-canal than go to another potluck—his white-picket-fence dreams will be crushed.
Being stuck in an RV with Luke should be three days of flirtatious fun, but for Kat it’s heavenly hell. The close confines and good old-fashioned lust are making a mockery of her perfect-woman façade, and if he finds out about the mistake that might cost her job— and force her to leave town for good— it’ll take more than a sexy pair of handcuffs to keep him close.
Sigh... I don't even know where I want to start with this review - RV trip? Handcuffs? Friends turned lovers? Small town hero? hmmm... let's start with the Handcuffs :) cause that's the type of girl I am and so is Kat.
Kat's convinced there was only one way to get Luke to his "surprise" birthday party and that was to handcuff him. But once the cuffs go on too many other things go through her mind and body, only this time she doesn't hold back, the gloves are coming off and neither know what they are in store for..
"Damn right he would. The thought snuck up on her, but right on its heels was If I had Luke Hamilton at my mercy for even ten minutes he’d think it was the best frickin’ day of his life."
Once Kat opens this door to friends turned lovers there is no way Luke is going to let it close, not without pulling out all the stops ‘cause he knows that she is perfect for him. Luke is a man who makes lists, joins committees, and has a clear design on how his life will play out - and Kat is in those plans.
I loved Luke even in book one Anything You Want, he always wants to be the fixer and I can identify with that. He's the best friend, great guy, the one everyone says ‘be like him’ but he has been confused for years on who he should truly be with until "the handcuffs" then he knows for sure it's Kat.
Kat is the home town girl that came back to practice medicine for her town, friends, and committee but she's not the typical sweet little girl next door. No, Kat is definitely not - she wears all black, color streaks in her hair, piercings, and you can't forget her "kick-ass boots". Kat is a little different but that's her armor and Luke is just the man to help her out of that armor and lay her out bare so she can find her true self.
"Some days a girl just needed kick-ass boots."
An RV can be a very interesting place, close quarters, one bed, no escape, and nothing to do but talk, maybe play a game of strip questions, and get to know each other a little better.
This is just another amazing book by Erin Nicholas! From the first page she had me and I wasn't letting go. If you follow my blog you'll see I don't read a lot of contemporary but there is something in the way that Ms. Nicholas writes that has me hooked. Her characters are likeable and well developed, her story lines are easy to follow and remind you that everyday life can be romantic.
Got a question for you all...
Have you ever been as adventurous as Kat and Luke ?
