***THIS BOOK WAS PROVIDED TO NERD GIRL IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW***
Country-girl Chessie Gibson’s always been a giver. Billionaire Theo Courant’s always been a player. Since childhood, the two have irritated the heck out of each other. Only when Theo breaks both wrists and ankles in a snowboarding accident, Chessie’s asked to care for her family friend. But being stuck with egotistical Theo in her Meadowview farmhouse is most definitely not her idea of fun.
Theo sees Chessie as part pin-up girl, part hippie-chick—nothing like the models and social climbers he’s used to dating. She’s gorgeous and luscious, but he’s never made a move on his best friend’s younger sister. The two of them are opposite in almost every way imaginable. But wow—is she ever hot!
But when Theo and Chessie end up stuck together for weeks, they come to know each other in ways neither thought possible. Seeing a different side of Theo—he’s not exactly the frivolous playboy he seems—Chessie finds herself unable to resist the temptation to try a “friends with benefits” situation. But their differences continue to come between them…and if Theo doesn’t learn love is something that cannot be bought, the chance of a lifetime could pass them both by.
This is book 4 in the Meadowview Heat Series and while you could read this book as a stand alone, the previous books contain the same characters and they are all equally amazing, so why not start at book 1?!? If you do happen to start here though, you will not be disappointed, these are two very important characters that the reader can’t help but love.
Chessie and Theo are as opposite as any two people can be, yet when fate forces them together they find out that opposites really do attract. I loved the dynamics between the characters in this story. Chessie is so down to earth and real and Theo is so spoiled and fake that it just doesn’t seem like they will survive the time together, let alone fall in love! The book had it’s predictable parts but it also had those laugh out loud, I can’t believe the author went there parts and that is what keeps the reader guessing. The author doesn’t give the reader a chance to catch their breath before she throws something else at them.
The characters are instantly relatable and are fun for the reader. The reader becomes immersed in their world and doesn’t want to ever leave. I love how the characters are all inter-connected and the friendship and love between them comes through in each sentence that you read. The author does an amazing job making the book fresh and different than the usual romance and the author takes the time to fill in some of the backstory so that the reader can read this as a standalone if they wanted.
The plot is quick moving and it is one that the reader just doesn’t want to end. The chapters go by quickly and before the reader knows it hours have passed and they still don’t want to stop. This is one of those books that you need to read when you have plenty of time to get through it so that you don’t have to take a break (because you won’t want to). Add this one and the previous books to your TBR list and be prepared to embark on a Meadowview marathon because once you start there is no stopping! Enjoy, this series is amazing and is a must read for any and all that enjoy romance, a bit of mystery and plenty of love, friendship and caring.
