He needs an image makeover, she needs a mojo upgrade. A new lessons-in-seduction hockey romance from Wall Street Journal bestselling author Sarina Bowen.
After I’m arrested for throwing a raucous party, my hockey team says I have an image problem. And I need to fix it, stat.
Charity work? Check. Haircut? Sure. But I draw the line at hiring my neighbor to style me. In the first place “style” shouldn’t be a verb. And I’m tired of people who’d judge me on appearances.
Vera and I don’t see eye to eye on anything. She wants me to try on clothes, while I just want to remove hers. She's distractingly pretty, with soulful eyes and a sinful mouth that likes to argue with me.
But when management threatens my summer vacation, I grudgingly agree to Vera’s unusual proposal: she’ll give me an image makeover. But in return, she wants lessons in the art of seduction.
It sounds a little nutty, but I know a good opening when I hear it. Besides, it’s not like I’ll ever fall for her…
First, let me say, I love books where the hero is named Ian. No idea why, but that and the fact that this one was a Sarina Bowen title, and I was in.
Ian and Vera are complete opposites. She is all about image, it's what her job literally is, and Ian...well...isn't. which, ironically, is one of his main problems, although even he doesn't know why it's as big an issue to the team as it is.
Vera, well, she has no interest in anything to do with Ian...but, she feels just a little guilty about something she did and the result of her actions on him. I loved this. I loved her reaction to it. And, I thought it felt really real, like something that a person would do, and then feel bad about later. And, this is how I felt the entire book...like I was reading about people, and their reactions, and their real reactions to things happening to them.
Romance is predictable. You know what is going to happen, you know how it's going to end. What you don't know is how the author is going to get the reader (and their characters) there and Sarina Bowen is one of those authors who always deliver a ride worth reading.
I enjoyed and recommend this title.
