Their love is a long shot...
Aspiring writer Kellie Dalton needs a man, and fast. When she’s rear-ended by a sexy-as-sin biker on the way to a Vegas romance readers convention, she sees her chance. If he’ll pose as her fake boyfriend long enough to impress a bestselling author, Kellie has a shot at saving the bookstore for underprivileged kids she runs back home.
Quinn Anderson doesn’t know what to make of the cute little writer who stirs his heart and his libido, but he does know he wants to get better acquainted. And if that means keeping up their sexy ruse all week, he’s game.
Quinn knows a girl like Kellie deserves someone with a secure future to help with her store, not a guy struggling to turn a profit on his chopper shop. But if his motorcycle designs win the big Vegas competition, he’ll have enough prize money to fund his dreams… and hers.
I took one look at this cover and wanted to read the book. Something about that combination of 50's style dress, lounging on the motorcycle and a sweet smooch from Mr. Biker Man... Oh yeah. It hit all my buttons and yelled READ ME!! Then I read the blurb and damn, she's a bookstore owner. Yep, totally had to read it now.
I know what your thinking... Why is she starting at book #13 in a series? Well, the simple answer is I didn't realize it was that far into the series when I first took a look at it. But also, every book in the series is written by a different author, so although they are all set in the same universe and time line, each story stands alone. Sweet, yes?
Kellie is an aspiring writer/independent bookstore owner. She is fighting to keep her bookstore open, and hopes that by finishing her novel, she can generate enough funds to keep it going. Except Kellie spent so much time helping out her critique partner, she let her own work slide. Now she's at a make it or break it point. This trip to Las Vegas might just be her last conference. And then she runs into Quinn. Or rather, he runs into her when she stops at a light. Quinn is the personification of the hero of the book she is working on - her Greek God Biker comes to life. What's a girl to do, but ask him to be her hero?
From the start, I adored Quinn's character. On one hand he wasn't the stereotypical biker, and yet, on the other he totally was. Figuring out which was which made him fascinating. And the humor in seeing the genre of romance through his eyes, was all in good fun. I know I had a laugh or two, with some of the wacky, yet accurate observations.
The bulk of Kellie and Quinn's romance takes place within about a week's time span. Yes, that seems incredibly quick, but most of that time was spent in non-stop togetherness, in some funny, yet high adrenaline moments. This was one heck of a ride and I enjoyed it all. I gave this book 4 stars.
Thanks to Netgalley and Entangled for the opportunity to read and review the book.
