Quinn Fontana is a girl who has really bad luck. She loses her mother at a young age and has always been looked after and protected by her dad and brother. In a push for independence she gets her own job which leads to witnessing a murder and having to run across the country. My favorite part of this novel was Vinnie and the ferrets. They added a nice touch. My only problem with this novel is it seemed like everything happened too neatly, but all in all a nice lighthearted read where (almost) everyone is happy in the end.
One lie of omission could turn her wildest dream into a world of hurt.
Quinn Fontana never thought witnessing two murders would lead to her first taste of freedom. But when her overprotective brother puts her on a plane for L.A. to hide until it’s time to testify, she can’t stop the shiver of anticipation.
If her life is going to be cut short, she plans to live it to the fullest. And that includes seducing her intended protector—her brother’s best friend and star of her private fantasies.
When security consultant Reif Callaghan awakens after a rowdy night out with his coworkers to find a warm, willing woman in his bed, he’s almost past the point of no return when he realizes it’s Quinn. And he’s come way too close to debauching his best friend’s little sister.
Her enticing offer—one night, no holding back, no regrets—is a temptation he can’t resist. Until he realizes she’s been hiding a piece of vital information that could cost not only their one chance to turn fantasy into reality, but their lives.
Warning: Contains fantasy-come-true sex, get-it-out-of-their-system sex, angry-as-hell sex, and on-the-run sex. Also, accidental ferret-napping. Asthmatics are advised to load up on antihistamines before reading.
About the Author:
Barista by day; romance novelist by night. When I’m not writing fiction, song lyrics or Dr. Seuss-like poetry, I masquerade behind a green apron as a barista for a worldwide coffee company. I originally thought this would be a fun little job where I could escape from my writer hidey hole and get paid to socialize for a few hours a week. That was in 2003. Each year I grow closer to my goal of being the world’s oldest living barista.
