"Amusing contemporary romance"
Divorced Kellie Summers receives the frantic call from
the All Day All Play day camp to pick up her son Trevor who
was gambling and possessed a knife. Kellie leaves her
struggling new business Copycat to pick Trevor and his twin
sister up, but instead ends up in a fender bender with a
hunk in a BMW, Riley Lombard III. He makes sure Kellie is
okay, but has a flash of he and she marrying.
He knows he must avoid this woman at all costs because
he cannot deal with any personal emotions as he is still
struggling with the deaths of his spouse and daughter.
However, his efforts to escape seem doomed as fate seems to
propel Kellie and Riley together. His new ploy is to find
her someone else, but he soon finds himself in love with a
woman who reciprocates his love even though she wanted
nothing to do with the other sex after her impulsive
gambler of a first husband.
HUSBAND MATERIAL is an amusing contemporary romance
that uses misunderstandings to foster the plot. The story
line is often humorous, but the problem of gambling
addiction is a serious subject that is treated too
lightly. Kellie and Riley are strong individuals
struggling with their respective pasts and the pressure of
a combined future. Her two kids are a delight especially
Trevor the Terrible. Liz Ireland has written a funny
relationship tale starring two walking wounded.
