Book two of Getting Physical

Roller derby girl Gretchen "Honey Badger" Badgerton lives in the moment, no apologies. Like every woman in Pleasant Park with a pulse, she finds Dr. Jared Fine irresistible, but she's taken by surprise when her unattainable new neighbor asks her out.

On paper, Jared is the perfect man: gorgeous, wealthy and charitable. But his golden image is just that, and opening an upstate practice is a welcome chance to start a new life. When Gretchen stops to help him with a flat tire, he's intrigued by her feisty attitude—and her sexy body art. There's something refreshing about being with a take-charge woman who doesn't expect him to be anything but himself.

Though Gretchen is hesitant to shatter Jared's "bad girl" illusion of her, she has to face facts: she's fallen for the good doctor. She's used to putting everyone else's needs before hers, but as their relationship heats up, can she handle having someone take care of her for a change?

★ 
Heavily tattooed, tough-as-nails barista Gretchen Badgerton is easily dismissed by many, including Jared Fine, a plastic surgeon and international hero. But when she helps him change a flat tire on a dirt road one night, he takes a second look. All those tattoos end up in places that make a man pleasantly weep but also hide the pain of a family that doesn’t accept her for who she really is. And despite Jared’s outrageous doctor’s ego, Gretchen finds he’s just as vulnerable to relatives’ demands as she is. But when family pressure pushes him to do better than the little town of Pleasant Park, Jared will have to choose between his inherent ego and the inked, hometown Derby Girl.

Verdict This is the second installment in Morgan’s “Getting Physical” series. It should be added to any library’s collection, along with the first book, The Rebound Girl. This series promises to be a hit!–Christyna Hunter, Loudoun Cty. P.L., Lovettsville, VA
