Book Description Courtesy of Amazon:
Rachel Bennett loved her job until the day she finds herself doubting her choices. Now she’s hunting for a new career, but starting over isn’t easy. Her plan is simple –no distractions until she finds her dream job. She didn’t plan on fate throwing her a curveball in the form of a fender bender with a sexy guy in an expensive suit. Craig Larsen is a wealthy, successful business owner with a plan of his own: survive his current PR nightmare and stay away from his overly determined ex-girlfriend. His need for control and personal success is turned upside down when he meets Rach, a sassy redhead who can’t drive. Soon they find themselves battling with Rach’s grumpy old neighbor, toilet-papering the trees of a high-school nemesis, and fighting over the last slice of pizza. Can two very different people plus one fender bender equal a chance at forever?
Hilarious, charming, light-hearted – this book is awesome. I truly could not put it down. All the characters are believable and loveable. Rachel Bennett is dealing with enough problems when she and Craig Larsen meet in a less than desirable way. However, this little fender bender maybe the best thing that has happen to Rachel in a long time.
Roy did an excellent job of including playful banter between the characters of Rachel and Craig. However, they are also supportive of each other and willing to listen and give each other advice. The secondary characters in the book are also very dimensional – I loved the scenes at Rachel’s parents’ house the imagery is so real you will feel like you are visiting as well. Laughing and crying this book has it all – seriously one minute you will be crying tears of laughter and the next you will be crying tears of heartache. There is truly never a dull moment in this book. I mean really a book that includes classic cars, garden gnomes and toilet papering a house – it has a little bit for everybody.
