Ladies, can it get any better than a man who not only knows his way around the kitchen, but around...other rooms as well? *wink wink*
After having her heart broken by her boyfriend of 7 or so years, Casey left the city to settle in Bonnet, where she helps manage a campground. Insert Ben, a younger, attractive man who's there with some friends. Thus, their fling is born!
While I definitely enjoyed the book, it was a bit slow-paced, especially in the middle. Furthermore, Ben needed to have more backbone, especially where his family is concerned and Casey needed to have more self-confidence. I didn't expect her to be 100% confident after that nasty breakup and subsequent rebuilding of her life, but yeesh! At moments, it was really hard to connect with her because of that. Some parts of the story also felt rushed, such as when the author talks about Casey's painting and sketching. It all makes sense later on in the book, but not in the beginning.

However, the author does have a way of describing scenes that allow you to imagine them in detail, right down to the details. Overall, the characters need a bit of work, but it was enjoyable!

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
