Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

The term is over, and sociologist Emma Riley is back home in Rock Creek, PA, for her two sisters' weddings. She also intends to begin a research study of the reasons behind the recent influx of people into tiny Rock Creek by interviewing some new arrivals-starting with supersexy bad boy Jake Slayter, former extreme sports athlete and current bartender at the local watering hole. Brains and brawn clash from the start, but when scholarly Emma piques Jake's interest by leveling a lecherous drunk with a well-placed hit and her outgoing mother invites Jake to the wedding-as Emma's date!-the pair strike a bargain that could give them both what they want. A prim heroine with a fiery core and a haunted, searching hero who thrives on the rush of adrenaline join with an abundance of quirky characters to drive the classic plot of this funny, spicy romance to a satisfying conclusion. With her typical sense of humor, Linz has given readers another joyful, laughter-filled story to savor-and another view into the charming Pennsylvania town she has created. Linz (Big Girls Don't Cry) lives in Naperville, IL.

    So boring, I could not finish the book.

    I felt there was no chemistry between Jake and Emma. The story line just kind of went on and on...mid-way I stopped reading because I thought "this is not going to get any better".

    Good Read

    I truly enjoyed reading this book. It was fun, fast and enjoyed the sister rivalry/relationship and the kooky Mom. I will read more of Linz in the future.

    Cathie Linz keeps her delightful contemporary romance amusing

    Boston sociologist Emma Riley returns to her hometown of Rock Creek, Pennsylvania to attend the weddings of her two sisters and to conduct some local research. However, coming home also places a strain on Emma as she is a victim of déjà vu when she is caught in the middle of her family battles, a role she is quite good at but prefers not to do anymore.<BR/><BR/>When dependable Emma meets rebel without a cause Jake, she is shocked how attracted she is to him. Jake feels likewise although he cannot understand why he wants the seemingly always mellowing too smart Emma; thus he refuses to act on his desire until he realizes she rejects him as being too rebellious, too much a hunk, and worse too stupid for her. Trying to prove he is her intellectual equal although he hides his secret agenda as to why he is in town from her, they fall in love. Yet each wonders how much they will need to compromise of their essence as they both understand how polar opposites they are in outlook.<BR/><BR/>Fascinatingly although the premise of lifestyle opposites falling in love has been done a zillion times, Cathie Linz keeps her delightful contemporary romance amusing mostly because of Emma¿s dilemmas that make Jake feel somewhat like a snake as he rejects family roles. Whereas Emma does not like to make waves so she effortlessly returns to her expected family function of referee and arbitrator in time for dealing with wedding nonsense; Jake relishes making tsunamis to keep his family away. Smart sub-genre fans will not have to think twice about reading this humorous opposites attract romance.<BR/><BR/>Harriet Klausner
