Falling in love is just not on Nora King’s To Do List…
Neither is accidentally super-gluing her shoe to her hand right before the biggest presentation of her life!
With all the hard work she’d put into securing the family business after her father’s death, Nora has no choice but to accept help from a knight in shining armour.
Disaster relief worker Ethan Love is still haunted by his last deployment, and desperate for distraction. He’s in town to ask Nora for a major favour, and swooping in to save her presentation is a sure way to get her on side.
As Ethan sticks around and helps Nora through her grief, her barriers tumble down…but will she dare to swap her To Do lists for a How to Fall in Love list?
I absolutely loved this book! It has the right measure of love, romance, passion and sauciness to boot!
Nora King steps into our world with a shoe glued to her hand - and she tries to hide the fact when whilst going for help, she manages to meet Ethan Love - Her sister's ex's brother! The chemistry between them is instantly electrifying - even whilst she has the shoe attached to her hand... just unfortunate though isn't it?
With the meeting of a lifetime just around the corner time-wise, will Nora be able to free her hand from the shoe or will she lose out? ... Or a third possibability is that a knight in shining armour will come to her rescue.... hmmm doesn't seem likely does it.
Nora is working overtime to bring the family company back into a thriving one, yet is coming up against emotional obstacles. The kind that involve men... the one being her father who has recently passed away, and the other... who happens to be a hot stud muffin that makes her lose her senses at just the sight of him.... yes, Mr Ethan Love, of Love Leisure.
Ethan is in town to save his brother Ryan after he got himself into some bother, but he needs Nora's help... and the co-operation of Sephy, Nora's sister, Ryan's Ex and mother to his daughter. But Ethan is also hiding emotional turbulence that involves something he did at work... what will the verdict be?
Will Nora be able to allow herself some fun... and maybe more, or will she dedicate herself to work and miss the chance of a lifetime? And while she's at it, will she be able to fully grieve... feel for her father and open the letter he sent her?
I can promise you that this book is amazingly funny in a gentle way, hugely romantic and the passion is ooh la la! The passion is realistic, warming, scrap that, it's SIZZLING and I couldn't help but cheer Nora and Ethan on. I'd love to see them return to see how the next leg of the journey goes... but if not, I can happily leave them where they are and dream of the possibilities for them both... whether they are together or not...
Brilliant writing Eve! I loved every page!
