Really great read — 7 years ago
Sexy bad boy Jude Jamison, a former prize-fighter and wealthy actor who has given up Hollywood for sleepy Stillbrook, Ohio, develops a mad crush on curvy, conservative gallery owner May Price. Though May does her best to thwart Jude’s bold advances, she winds up pleading for his help after her ne’er-do-well brother, $50,000 in debt, is beaten by loan shark goons. May and her brother have no choice but to borrow the money from Jude and hide out at his palatial Stillbrook estate. When Jude discovers that the terms of the debt involve a personal threat, he steps in to protect both May and himself.
I really enjoyed this book and the fact that the lead male was not interested in the typical stick thin female, yet embraced the curves of May. That was refreshing in my opinion. This books is now going on my available bookshelf at Bookcrossing.com for a future wild release or trade.
