This story opened up describing Mark's life up to this point, and I've got to say I wasn't impressed. I think the ex-wife bashing could have been left out, or at least lightened up a bit. It takes two to make a marriage and two to kill one. Kudos for not cheating and actually getting a divorce before moving on, but the man whore act was a bit much.
And I didn't particularly care for Suzannah either. She hit on both John (book 1) and Greg (book 2) before getting Mark. She doesn't seem too choosy to me. And neither does Mark based on the past three years since his divorce. Not to sound catty, but I wasn't invested in either character personally and they really didn't do anything wrong. We just didn't have chemistry I guess.
Suzannah and Mark did have chemistry though, and had sex in some very interesting and downright dirty (literally) places. I found myself cringing through one scene as a result. The story moved along nicely, Mark's concerns a little over the top but eventually valid, the flow of the story smooth. The protagonist was believable if not pathetic and the ending satisfying, especially the Epilogue.
Mark Olson wasn’t just known for owning his three large car dealerships. He’s also known as a player, at least since his divorce. For a while, he believed he was satisfied as a member of Advantage Insurance Company’s board of directors and bedding a different woman every weekend. That is until someone decided to call his bluff.
Suzannah McCormick is the sweet girl working hard as the executive assistant to Advantage’s CEO. But underneath her saccharine southern charm is a vixen-in-waiting. She’s never been with a man that tapped into that side of her, but she set her sights on Mark Olson with high hopes.
Mark doesn’t realize his player/single status and his heart are in jeopardy.
