ABOUT THE BOOK:
She's just the kind of drama....
Interior designer Bertie Anderson has big dreams for her career, and they don't include being stuck in her hometown of Harmony, North Carolina. One last client, and Bertie is packing up her high heels and heading for her dream job in Atlanta. But her plans are derailed by the gorgeous new owner of that big old Victorian she's always wanted to renovate...
He's vowed to avoid...
For retired tennis pro Keith Morgan, Harmony is a far cry from fast-paced Miami--which is exactly the point. Keith is starting a new life for himself and his daughter Maddie, and he's left the bright lights and hot women far behind. Bertie's exactly the kind of curvaceous temptation he doesn't need, and Keith refuses to let their sizzling attraction threaten his new lifestyle and his daughter's welfare. Keith and Bertie both have to learn that there's more than one kind of escape, and it takes more than wallpaper to turn a house into a home.
READ AN EXCERPT
I was given an ARC of this book for an honest review.
I enjoyed this book and found it to be fairly clever. However I thought it suffered from pacing and underdevelopment which slowed the flow way down sometimes.
I did enjoy the characters- some of them are quite a hoot (quirky, off the wall - maybe a bit too much so but hey, they are FUN).
Overall, this book was filled with some great emotional moments and a fair amount of sexual tension and heat. I liked it enough that I want to read more about the characters in the upcoming books in this series.
