***THIS BOOK WAS PROVIDED TO NERD GIRL IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW***
When Lia Sawyer realizes she’s ready to move beyond her abusive past and start dating again, there’s just one problem: she’s still afraid of being touched by a man. Because of that, rumor around town is that she’s frigid. Her solution? Ask her friend Jack Gibson for help. After all, he’s one of her best friends—a man she’s always trusted.
Jack fell in love with his best friend’s younger sister years ago, although he kept that to himself when she married her high school boyfriend. But Lia’s been a widow for two years now and it’s time he asked her out. When she comes to him with a bizarre request—give her lessons on how to be touched by a man so she can date one of Meadowview’s hot firefighters— his entire plan is thwarted.
Reluctantly, Jack agrees to Lia’s plan but secretly creates one of his own: during the course of their “lessons,” he’ll make sure she falls in love—with him. But it will take fire and ice to break through Lia’s emotional barriers, and Jack is running out of time…
Jack and Lia are friends but one of them has always wanted more…can they make the other person see it? Does their love stand a chance? The characters are well developed and complex and they make you feel like you are going through the emotions with them. They are very down to earth and the reader can relate to them on a personal level. There is no super rich, unobtainable man or poor uneducated woman…these are real, everyday people that you could meet anywhere. The author creates the perfect town and the perfect blend of people for the reader.
The plot is quick and leaves the reader on the edge of their seat in anticipation for what may come next. The reader never loses interest and they can almost predict what may happen next but there is always a little bit of a plot twist to throw them off. This is book 2 in the series but you can read it on it’s own. The author sums up things from book 1 without making the reader feel like they are re-reading it. Book 1 was also an amazing read, so there is no reason that you shouldn’t add both book 1 and 2 to your TBR list. Enjoy the characters, the town and the unique, yet fun writing style that the author brings to the table.
