Accountant Katie Kramer
is a quintessential good girl—working hard, recycling diligently, all the while
trying to ignore the feeling that she doesn't fit in anywhere. That's all she
wants. Well, that—and amazing sex, and the kind of daredevil escapade she can
look back on when she's crunching numbers in a dusty cubicle. Which explains
why she just took a job in Wishful, California, working for Wilder Adventures
and Expeditions. Waking up to find a magnificently built stranger towering over
her bed—that part defies explanation...
After wandering the
planet for months following a life-changing accident, Cameron Wilder has come
back to the only home he knows. Under other circumstances, he might be thrilled
to find a gorgeous woman sleeping in his cabin, but now, while he'll risk his
body taking clients on adrenaline-drenched excursions, his heart is off limits.
Still, Katie's killer smile triggers something deep in his gut...among other
places. Showing her how exhilarating it can be to stop balancing her life as if
it was a checkbook is the biggest rush he's ever felt—and an adventure Katie's
wishing would never end. . .
This story grabbed me
from the get-go!“Instant Attraction” by
Jill Shalvis was the perfect title for this book.While the attraction for Katie and Cam was instant,
it took them a long time to actually act on it willingly.They are two complex characters which made
them interesting on their own to read about.What bothered me in this story was that while having a couple get
interrupted once when they are about to get busy is one thing, when it happens
almost every time, it gets tiresome.By
the third time it happened in this book, I almost called it quits.
I’m glad I didn’t.
Fans of Jill Shalvis
won’t be disappointed.This promises to
be a great series and I’m looking forward to the next ones for sure!
I am an avid reader and writer of all things contemporary romance. I am a particular fan of the Harlequin Desire line. Some of my favorite authors include: Susan Mallery, Sandra Brown, Nora Roberts, Debbie Macomber, Diana Palmer, Emilie Rose, Kristan Higgins and Linda Lael Miller. That's not to say that I don't read other authors, these are just my personal favorites.
I'm always looking for a good book and I'm not particular about whether it is a new book and currently on some top seller list, I'm just looking for a good story. Hopefully I'll find many and be able to share them here with you.
I'm an author wanna-be whose ultimate dream is to be published. I have several completed manuscripts although I've only submitted one and I have the pile of rejections to show for it! But it's still my dream and some day I hope to see it come true! In April 2011, I became a top-five finalist in the Harlequin Desire Editor's Pitch Challenge and had the opportunity to pitch one of my books to a Harlequin editor! I'm still waiting to hear if they want me or not but either way it was very exciting to make it that far.
So if you are a fan of contemporary romance and are looking for something to read, sit back and enjoy. Maybe I've got something listed here that you can read!
