Overview

Claire Willoughby, nationally famous lifestyle diva, knows what it takes to cook luscious meals from scratch, stencil a wall border from a grocery bag, and create beautiful holiday ornaments from common household items. Then her Number One Fan leaves her custody of a small, rambunctious toddler, and suddenly the style goes right out of her life.

And it gets worse. Enter, on a Harley, wearing ragged jeans, a diamond stud earring and a black eye, hell-raiser Ramsey Sage...the child's uncle. And though Ramsey claims he wants custody of the little tyke, Claire is plenty certain he doesn't know his way around a nursery.

But she quickly learns he sure knows his way around a woman--those tempting kisses and scorching gazes turn up the heat hotter than Claire's test kitchen on a summer's day. He seems all wrong for her, but he feels so right. How can it be that Ramsey, despite all his faults, might be the prefect man for her?

This book was OK but don't expect alot of dialogue. most of the book was just what was going on in the characters head. like one character would say hello and then we would read a good two pages of their thoughts before the other character would respond. This made it really difficult to read.

Elizabeth Bevarly has delivered another keeper romantic comedy that is often laugh-out-loud funny and always a pleasure. Unlike many romance authors who have distilled their books down to dialogue and action only, Bevarly wields her significant command of the English language -- and her sense of whimsy -- in a way that has intelligent readers enjoying every sentence. I highly recommend this book -- which contains a hotter-than-cayenne-pepper love scene -- to anyone who values wit with their romance!

A slightly obsessed fan dies and leaves her baby with a Martha Stewart clone. Enter the Terminator and in less than a week, they're in love?! Give me a break! There is no character development at all. No clear cut reasons are given why these 2 fall in love. Frankly, the courtship between the secondary characters, Olive and Davis, was more realistic and even that relationship wasn't clearly developed. Add in one slightly deranged lawyer and a ratings-hungrey studio flunkie and you have a very mildly entertaining romance. I've read other books by Elizabeth Bevarly, which were much, much better than this one. To say I was disappointed in this book is an understandment! What happened?!
