Bohemian hairstylist and spa owner Marly Fine can handle almost anything. At least until she walks into the office of Florida governor Jack Hammersmith when he's shirtless and hot enough to ignite every ballot box in the state. It's clear how he earned his player reputation. Thankfully, he's so not her type. Sure, his kisses may peel the polish from her toes, but that chan

This was a funny Harlequin novel and being a Harlequin novel I didn't expect much from it. But it was much better than I thought, I finished in a day and enjoyed it a lot. The plot is a bit unbelievable, a governor falls in love with a hairdresser with hippies tendencies by looking at her photo in a magazine, but it worked with humor. I think I'm going to read the next in the series too.
I have to say this the cover is so relevant to the book,down to the smallest details
I came home from a 14-hour work day and picked up this book and a glass of wine. The scene in Marly's parents' rundown Ft. Myers bungalow, decorated in Florida kitsch, her dad cutting the dessicated roast beef and having it fly across the table, had me in tears. The ludicrous impossibility of the Florida governor falling in love with a hippie Miami hairdresser, the sheer delight of The Hammer's sense of humor - compared to Florida's current governor, the Peacock, and his image savvy way - all th...more
Marly Fine is a hairdresser trying to make ends meet. Jack Hammersmith is the governor of Florida and born with a silver spoon. He has decided that she is the one for him, she only needs persuasion. She is determined to teach him that his whims are not always convenient, particularly for someone who wants their independence.

I loved this book. Florida Govenor, Jack Hammersmith, saw a picture of hairstylist Marly Fine and knew it was love at first sight. His challenge was to convince Marly of that. I like how even though they lived apart and have extremly busy lives, they still put effort in their relationship. It had great romance and I loved the snarky remarks Marly made about Jack, his politics and bodygaurds.
