Some couples just click. When we first meet Burton he’s nekkid and handcuffed to a toilet. Other than his outstanding physique, he doesn’t have much going for him. But Leigh manages to see more and when they run into one another she stows her emotional baggage to see what’s what. And she, as well as Burton, have a great deal of baggage.
Burnt by his ex Burton is a love ‘em and leave ‘em type, but there is something about Leigh keeps him coming back. He makes mistakes along the way, but he finds himself unable to make the usual cut. Calling it no-strings sex is one way to handle it, but what about when he discovers he wants more?
This had a different feel than the first two books in the series. While the characters had some issues, they weren't on the scale of the previous books. And meeting while one of the two is naked added a little fun. This was a quick read that dabbled in a little risqué sex that led somewhere totally unexpected. A good read that added nicely to the series.
Some couples just click. Others require a hard hat and a stud finder.
Tulle and Tulips, Book 3
Monday mornings have a reputation for sucking, and today is no different for Burton Anderson. One year ago, his “perfect” life full of prestige, money, success and travel crumbled in the glaring light of betrayal.
This morning? This close to making his new construction business a success, a date gone awry has left him handcuffed to a toilet in a housewares store. Naked. And the first customer of the day is coming down his aisle.
Planning and shopping for other couples’ Big Day is about as wild and crazy as buttoned-up Leigh Schyuler gets. Until she gets an eyeful of Hearth and Home’s daily special. He’s definitely a “designer” temptation while she’s “off the rack”.
But there are risks, and then there are risks. Burton isn’t sure he can once again trust his heart to a woman who holds the power to ruin him. And Leigh discovers too late that indulging in a little no-strings sex is tying her dream of Devoted Love into hopeless knots…
Warning: Contains a hard-hatted, hard-bodied hero who’s good with his hands, and a woman who’d like him to build a bridge over her sexual boundaries. Nuts and bolts never had it so good.
