Every red-blooded male in St. Helena wants Harper Owens…as a friend. Despite her efforts at seduction, Harper seems to be destined to end up alone. The only guy with a knack for unleashing her inner vixen is firefighter and resident rule-breaker Adam Baudouin. Agreeing to a faux-mance could help him secure a promotion—and save her family’s lingerie shop, the Boulder Holder. But playing with fire has consequences. Especially when the flame comes courtesy of St. Helena’s own Five-Alarm Casanova.…
None of Adam’s quick-and-easy hookups have prepared him for a connection this extraordinary. There’s more to the milk-and-cookies art teacher that he’d love to explore. But first he has to convince her to trust the town’s most notorious playboy. Even tougher—he’ll have to trust himself to be the real-life hero this warm and sexy woman deserves.
|Harper Owens feels like she is destined to be alone in her life. Every man she feels attracted to looks to her as a friend and not as women who they want to date. Adam Baudouin is able to get all of her buttons pushed from the fist moment he walks in on her in her shop. That is the moment that everything changes for him, for he sees her as a beautiful sexy woman who is now driving him crazy and he wants to be with her. The problem is getting her to want to be with him and not the doctor. The more Adam puts himself in her way the more for their confrontations, but it really is not like that it is more like to cubs in the wild getting to know one another and when it's starting to feel real it begins to scare her because she was not planning on Adam as being the guy she would fall for. Once it all starts to come together though it turns into a very good story, with good characters all the way around. A very good book. I got this book from Netgalley.com I gave it 4 stars.
