When a business deal
Becomes an affair of the heart.

Big-city Noah Wainwright’s always viewed business as a game. But when he stumbles across bed-and-breakfast owner Viviana Remington, she’s playing by different rules. Rules of honor that bring the love-’em-and-leave-’em playboy to his knees. And reserved Viviana’s hardly immune to the real-estate guru’s many charms. When Viv learns how the Wainright family plays the game, though, all bets are off…

My Thoughts:

Noah Wainwright believes in being hands on with his job.  Viviana Remington wants to repurpose the family home and at the same time restores it to its former glory.  Theirs is a story that seems slow and easy – helps with the feeling like you are a part of what’s going on.

I could almost feel Noah “twisting my arm” to take this book and go on a road trip.  Viviana gave me the perfect idea of where I would love to stay.  I’m good at multitasking but if she has an old-fashioned swing, I’m not sure if it would be possible to swing and read at the same time. – I think I’d get lost in the ambiance. 

Renovation shows have found their way into my heart.  I watch quite a few of the House Hunters and their more extended renovation shows.  There would be no issue with me being transfixed if Viviana’s family estate was featured.  I could see Noah there as well.  She’s a woman who seems to be up to any challenge that may come her way but he would be there to give suggestions. 

If I had to give one critique it would have to be one scene between our couple.  Noah wants to prove something to Viviana.  He says one thing but then turns around and makes a suggestion that you know has temptation written all over it.  Other than that, I thoroughly enjoyed this laid back tale.  I’m not going to suggest that this is a beach read but I will say it’s a great vacation read.  It was an easygoing story that I could see reading every summer.
