Read in January, 2007

Took me a while to get round to reading this one. Emilie Rose is one of the earlier Desire writers, so her heroes, while alpha, aren’t jerks. Hero is a NASCAR racer who bet a friend he could seduce the heroine, and when she dumps him after their one night together, his ego is wounded. Now his best friend is marrying the heroine’s best friend, and the groom is footing the bill for a month in Monaco for the bridesmaids. Heroine wants nothing to do with the hero because she sees race drivers as reckless, and reckless men aren’t husband material. She wants marriage. Hero doesn’t, but he wants to be the one to dump her, so he’s determined to get her in bed again. He’s awfully full of himself, but he’s not obnoxious with it. He’s a boyish charmer you want to smack for being such a smart-ass, but he’s not a jerk. I really enjoyed the sparring between the hero and heroine, and yet you have no doubt that the heroine is resisting because she’s attracted, not because she’s not interested. Or because the hero is such a jerk. Rose writes consistently good books. If you see her name on one, you might want to pick it up. :)
