Single again on Valentine’s Day, struggling actor Alec Tucker agrees to help out his longtime friend—and unrequited love—Theresa Jones by filling in as one of the bachelors for her company’s charity auction. Alec figures it couldn’t hurt to meet someone new. Still, working with Theresa reminds him of all the reasons he never got over her. So it feels a little bittersweet when, out of nowhere, a beautiful young street artist buys a date with him for a whopping four grand.
Little does he know, Theresa’s had a major change of heart. She’s crushed when someone else wins a date with Alec—but she isn’t going down without a fight. After a pep talk from her best friend, Theresa makes a desperate move that goes against her better judgment . . . and things only get crazier from there. But with Alec ready to move on and Theresa afraid she’s pushed him away for good, maybe a little crazy is exactly what they need—before they both miss their shot.
|A fun loving story that took me a little while to understand how the author was presenting it. First, you have Alec Tucker a struggling actor who happens to be also madly in love with Theresa Jones, he actually told her in those words and because of an ex she tells him they can’t be anything but friends. He is frustrated and as he feels his life is going nowhere he decides he must move on. It is at this moment when Theresa who is working on an auction for Valentine’s Day needs one more guy because someone dropped out. She calls the only person who has always been there for her Alec. Her friend tells her to leave him alone and let him go since you do not want him and he is totally in love with you. Not knowing her plan when he arrives the bidding starts on the first man. When it is Alec turn to be on stage he gets into the music and the next thing you know his shirt is off and the bidding keep going higher and higher. He cannot see you have won, but it is not the person he was hoping. It is an artist and when they go out on the town their date is filled with unexplained accidents. When you get to the second part of the story which is her part most of this is explained along with her version of what happened. Some of the parts are repeated, but the author does it in a way that still makes the story work. Overall I liked the characters, and though at first, I did not like Theresa by the end my opinion had changed. So this is a good book and worth the read. I got this book from Netgalley.com I gave it 4 stars. Follow us at www.1rad-readerreviews.com|
