longed for him from afar--right under his very nose! Impetuous
heiress-turned-authoress Molly Somerville has had a crush on leading quarterback Kevin Tucker for years, but despite her close ties to his
team he's never taken notice of her.
Gorgeous Kevin Tucker has been too busy
riding high on his fame as an NFL star, loving the limelight and the bevy
international supermodels that come with it to pay heed to the brainy
girl-next-door sister of his team's owner.
Thrown together under the worst
of circumstances Kevin and Molly are left trying to make the best of a bad
mess. What will it take to make the two of them breach each other's
protective walls and discover the love hiding within them?
worked for me:
far as snappy dialogue and cute images, there were some great gems to be
found in the pages of this book.
Size-wise Molly was neither
slender nor plump, but really quite athletic. Though she experienced
some twinges over not having inherited her mother's showgirl body, she was
glad for the healthy, whole body she did have.
I especially liked
the fact that this story dealt not only with the issue of size but also with age,
since there was a secondary romance featuring an older woman (who also happened
to have some trouble accepting her body.)
What didn't work for me:
getting-together of the rather immature heroine and hero felt more like a
plot device from an historical novel, and seemed totally out of place in a contemporary
read. There were some awkward plot issues, but they may be worth overlooking
for the fine humor and the interesting secondary romance.
