“All-consuming, deep, seductive, so damn emotional—this book is everything I expect from Jewel E. Ann. ~ Pam Godwin, New York Times, bestselling author
Flint Hopkins finds the perfect tenant to rent the space above his Minneapolis-based law office. All the t’s are crossed and i’s dotted on Ellen’s application. Her references are good. And she’s easy on the eyes.
Until … Flint discovers Ellen Rodgers, Board-Certified Music Therapist, plays music. Bongos, guitars, singing—not Beethoven administered through noise-cancelling headphones.
The cut-throat attorney serves up an eviction notice to the bubbly, constantly-humming redhead who’s too sexy for her own good. But luck is on Ellen’s side when Flint’s autistic son, Harrison, takes an instant liking to her. A single dad can’t compete with guitars—and rats. Yes, she has pet rats.
This woman … She’s annoyingly happy with a constant need to touch him—adjust his tie, button his shirt, invade his space, and mess with his mind.
Still … She must go.
Their lust-hate relationship escalates into something beautiful and tragic. This sexy, romantic-comedy explores the things we want, the things we need, and the impossible decisions parents and children make to survive.
When I saw this one on GR it immediately grabbed my attention. Awesome blurb means awesome book right? Thankfully, in this case, it did. 😉 Once I started reading “the prologue” there was no stopping until I was finished.
This book starts out with a tragedy, leaving behind a broken broody jerky man…my favorite 😛 …Flint Hopkins is a single father and a (stick in his ass) lawyer. I especially loved how he kept firing his assistant (no worries, you will like this part too)…Flint only exists to do his job and take care of his “mildly autistic” 12 year old son, Harrison. Flint is convinced he is paying for the wrongdoings of his past and so he is fine with the life he is living…He doesn’t deserve “more”.
What he didn’t count on though is Ellen. Beautiful, sweet, funny, rat loving music therapist, Ellen. She is about to rent the space above his office and change his life forever. When Flint (who is kind of an idiot) finds out, that music therapy actually involves music, he is ready to evict her out of his building…Problem is though that his son really likes Ellen ad if he is being honest (which he isn’t) so does he…
“Please tell me you assumed music would be involved? Otherwise, I’m embarrassed for you.”
I really liked this story, it had the right amount of drama, angst and fun times. It also had some nice steam…I do have to say that Flint really made this book for me…
Ellen was a great heroine and up until the end, I liked her a lot. I started questioning her behavior towards the end though, and that’s when she started to annoy me a bit…
Still…I had lots of fun reading this one, it was just what the doctor ordered. 😛
