Overview

When Kris awakens in a costume, behind wooden bars inside a pitch-black community center, her only available rescuer is the hung-over new guy in town (who's dressed as a pirate). Problem is: she's sworn-off men, especially buccaneers.
Badly burned four years ago by a player who ruined her financially, Kris Prima's heart is locked down as tightly as her lifestyle is confined by those massive debts. When first assisted by recent newcomer Ryan Hazzard, Kris is resentful, slightly afraid, and determined never again to trust men. But when court-ordered community service brings them together once more, she begins to appreciate Ryan's charm, good looks, and capable manner.
With all the rumors and assumptions which followed Ryan from a large metropolitan area, how can small-town Kris even begin to trust him? And why won't he explain any of those situations? Through her efforts to learn Ryan's mysterious past, they share further experiences: many comedic, one quite dangerous, and others very tender. Despite several misunderstandings, Kris's bottled-up feelings slowly re-awaken and she finally learns enough about Ryan to know she wants him in her life somehow. Kris regains her ability to trust a man and her heart is freed from its jail.

    Very fun read!  Quirky characters that were very enjoyable to let into my life!  I did particularly love the female lead... she tends to embellish stories just like I do!  So, the story was very true to life in that aspect! :) This is a great book to pick up for a fun and easy read.

    Rescued by That New Guy in Town

    An easy, entertaining and fun read which I thoroughly enjoyed reading from start to finish. Kris and Ryan are lovable characters, who are perfect for each other and the author has done an excellent job portraying the romance as it blossoms.

    I received an e-copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
