"Sometimes the thing you need the most is right in front of you..."
Beth Nash couldn't catch a break. When she agreed to dance
with a very hot man, she thought something was familiar
about him. When she discovered he was the jerk contractor
who refused to finish his work, she was mad enough to spit
nails, and told him about it. Finally convincing him to at
least give her a chance, she gets him to finish the work
that needed to be done. What she didn't count on was
discovering that there was more to Jack than met the eye,
and that she was slowly falling for him.
Jack O'Neil's night just couldn't get worse. When the woman
he asked to dance turned out to be a very unsatisfied
customer, who then proceeded to give him a piece of her
mind right there in the club, he agreed to check her
complaint, just to keep her quiet. When he discovered that
she really did have a valid reason to be upset, he agreed
to fix the damage. But as he worked, he realized that Beth
really was a sweet woman, and she might be the solution to
a very big problem he had. Would Beth be willing to agree
to help him? Would Jack move past his issues to act on
MAN TROUBLE is a very interesting read. Jack and Beth were
really complicated characters, and at times it seemed they
would never be able to move past their issues to get the
peace they deserved; but the ending of the story made it
all worth it. Their kids added a whole new dimension to the
story, and made it seem that much more real. All in all,
this was a quick and entertaining read!
