Book Blurb:

Chamber of Commerce CEO and single mother Jocelyn Wade plays to win—in the boardroom, at local politics and for her daughter. With an overloaded life and a heart scarred shut, she doesn’t do relationships. Ever. Until Jared Wyatt, the hot out-of-town fling she can’t seem to forget swaggers into her life with a different agenda—making Jocelyn his own.

Surviving a shattered marriage, Jared swore off women until a night of unparalleled passion with Jocelyn reawakens needs he thought long gone. When a new job as high school athletic director lands him in Jocelyn’s town, where sports and business rule, he must stay one move ahead of her in the game to win her body and heart.

After rancorous local politics upend their game board, they both must learn to trust again or lose a second chance at love.

My Review:

My first thoughts about this book? This novella reads like a movie. It has a brilliant flow and is very well put together. Garie employs fluid descriptions that bring the scenes to life. Everything is brought forward in a very vivid way, while remaining completely natural and realistic. It’s a brilliant balance. Garie has pulled everything together to create a yummy, heartening story that keeps you on your toes.

Garie has developed some intriguing and very strong characters. I appreciate that bothe the male and female leads are strong individuals. Garie proves that you can have an alpha male without having a subordinate female. I also love how the characters interact with one another. They’re real people with real world issues and it shows. No one is perfect. In fact, learning disabilities and family drama play a large role in this novella making everyone all the more human.

This novella is hot & racy. It’s a brilliant way to spend an afternoon. Above all, however, it has a real story behind it that keeps you captivated.
