The Trouble with Tomboys

BJ Gilmore is a cigar smoking, plane flying, and card playing tomboy. Even tomboys can be feminine. When smoking hot widower Grady Rawlings needs her to fly him to a meeting, she finds it hard to leave him alone. She sees that he is still grieving and that he just wants to be left alone. But BJ is not that type of person. Not to mention how do you sit quietly for an hour with the guy you were always kind of crushing on? Before she knows it BJ finds herself asking Grady to keep her company while she eats. The flight back is awkward to say the least. Grady left BJ after being intimate with her and BJ feels guilty that she kind of pushed him into the act.

They avoid each other like the plague once they land. Grady is conflicted with his growing interest for BJ and the love for his dead wife. BJ is just plain embarrassed. Time passes and from time to time BJ is finding she has a queasy stomach. When the rumor of her pregnancy hits Grady, he knows there is only one tie the knot.

This was an enjoyable read. BJ had a really off beat personality that made the story interesting. It was easy to fall in love with Grady. He was genuine and sweet most of the time. The care he showed for BJ instantly was endearing. The side characters were also charming and funny. Overall, a charming tale for its readers.
