Cassandra Riley, the beautiful owner of Malibu & Ewe, is giving up on taking care of Gabe Kincaid, her landlord and next door neighbor. She’s rescued him from trouble a little too often and he doesn’t even know she’s alive. Gabe has some wicked demons to fight, and while he’s determined to keep his relationship with Cassandra on a friendship basis only, things are starting to heat up in ways they never expected.
Cassandra is a caring woman who would give the shirt off her back to anyone who needs help; Gabe’s a nice guy when he’s around, but her family has been wondering if he’s taking advantage of a good thing. Gabe is a brilliant businessman, handy, wickedly funny and quite gorgeous, and he truly respects his friendship with Cassandra. He just needs to be able to cope with the emotional baggage that’s been weighing him down and affecting his judgment.
Those who have read the last two keepers, How to Knit a Wild Bikini and Unravel Me, will know that Dirty Sexy Knitting is part three in a series, but each book can stand alone in its fabulousness. While I loved each of Ms. Ridgeway’s books, this by far, is my favorite. As soon as I met Gabe, I was immediately entranced with Gabe as the tortured yet funny hero, and I was thrilled that this book delves deeper into who he is as a character and what makes him tick. Ms. Ridgeway does a great job of creating a successful business woman with a heart of gold. Even though Gabe is having some serious difficulty in coming to terms with his real feelings, I knew, and so will the reader, that these two simply MUST be together, and my heart simply couldn’t stand it if they couldn’t figure it out for themselves.
This perfectly written plot is filled to the brim with spicy romance, mysterious accidents, amusing dialogue, and gut wrenching emotion designed to tug at your heartstrings consistently. More importantly, the writer has penned an authentic love story, designed to indulge and pamper you all the way until the end. The secondary players, some of whom the reader may have met in previous books, are a critical key to the success of this book and they are all just as fun and exciting. There is no way you can walk away from this heartfelt book unaffected or unmoved in some way. Dirty Sexy Knitting is a profound and multi-layered tale of engaging warmth and delight that you’re simply going to adore. This one’s definitely a classic!
