Want to make Fate laugh? Try telling her who-s in charge.
Talented, down-on-her-luck puppeteer Ginnie Anderson-s life seems destined to fall down around her ears. Much like the rented bungalow that-s just collapsed in a heavy rainstorm, endangering her precious collection of marionettes.
Her livelihood in need of protection and repair, she can-t refuse her landlord-s offer of temporary shelter in his magnificent home. Under his roof, though, she finds her hard-won grasp on her independence slipping-and herself falling into his arms.
The hallmark of Harry Barrett-s business success: he never makes the same mistake twice, particularly when it comes to manipulative women. So why is Ginnie, who pulls strings for a living, like a siren-s song in his blood? It-s best to put temptation as far out of reach as possible.
Yet when Ginnie-s past threatens to destroy the life she-s built for herself, Harry must decide which is more important. Holding tight to his sense of self preservation, or letting go to capture Ginnie-s fragile heart-before it breaks into a thousand pieces.
Warning: Contains sizzling sex between a powerful hero who likes to be in control, and a heroine whose talented hands teach him the pleasure of giving up the reins.
What I thought:
I just loved this book! Christina was great and gave me an ARC. I was a bit nervous at first. I am the product of parents who let me watch Stephen King's It as a child... but no worries here! No weird doll scenes! I loved the story, I'm a sucker for a romance where the woman rises above an abusive partner, even if the partner makes alot of trouble for her.
I loved the characters, they were great. It had a great story, well rounded and the steamy parts didn't drown out the story and vice versa. It had a great balance. This was my first book by Christina Crooks and I think I really need to get my hands on her other books!
Hey guys! I'm a big fan of reading and writing. I have been writing my own little reviews on shelfari and decided to try my own blog. I love all kinds of books, mystery, paranormal romance, urban fantasy, young adult, erotica, historical romances and just any romance book.
I own a Kindle and love browsing Amazon for free ebooks as well as getting my favorite authors and series on my portable library system. This has changed the way I read. I have gone to a couple books a month to a couple books a week.
