About the book:
Melody Bryant has heard it all before. Sure, she's the epitome of the stereotype for a librarian. Loves order. Loves rules and deadlines. Loves books. But what she doesn't love is still being a virgin at twenty-four. Unfortunately, the only guy she's ever been interested in turned her down flat. And then left town. Eight. Years. Ago. Ugh.Now her birthday is fast approaching and she just can't take it any longer. She's finding a guy before her birthday in five weeks or she's adopting two more cats and fully embracing becoming "the crazy cat lady."But when her latest date ends in epic failure--everyone thinks of her as the "proper librarian," she realizes what she needs is to ruin her reputation. And she knows the perfect guy to help her: the baddest bad boy in town. This Army vet won't know what hit him...
Melody Bryant works in my wheelhouse and I understand her clothing choices. I can picture myself going to her place of business taking this book along and finding a quiet corner to read and to people watch. Adam Foster gets an eyebrow-raising proposition. Can a self-proclaimed bad boy reform?
What I loved was watching an alpha male squirm. Melody is curious but Adam doesn’t want to cross an invisible line. Our author makes it very easy to picture how uncomfortable some things can be. I also liked to see a young woman finally get a chance at what she thought was unattainable. Again, the author made it very easy to picture her frustration because she wants to be a woman but she has a brother that’s standing in her way. I did have one issue and that was the quick turnaround her brother had. I do understand though because it would have added into the length of the book. The ending will make you smile and a quizzical look on your face. We get hints of what the next book may be about but I can neither confirm nor deny that – but one can always hope.
