4 1/2 stars
An accidental love story that has a huge element of fun, a fantastic mix and works so well.

Miranda Jennings cartoon character undies is just one of the humorous elements in this story. I laughed out loud in many, many scenes due to the hilarious comments, often self-directed, and fun banter between the characters. This alone was worth reading the story and a reason for an extra half a star.

James Harrison is older than Miranda but just right for her! He is one swanky, hunky man! His sense of fun and caring attitude are winners, he might have been a workaholic and a bit of a bull terrier professionally but in his personal life, he is the one!

Miranda and James are so sexy together, their chemistry is so combustible with their red hot passion. Their growth as a couple is also fun to witness, and yes you really see them with such great detailed descriptions.

This author has a fantastic writing style, the way she words things is often extremely humorous but also so apt, the words literally flow across the page. For example... “...looks as at home here as a Hermès scarf tucked into the back of a pair of dirty overalls.” This is so accurate you can easily visualise the scene. Another reason for the extra half a star.

Being the first book by this author that I have read I am delighted with the story and want to devour all of her other books.
