When Keri Daniels' editor finds out she has previous carnal knowledge of reclusive bestselling author Joe Kowalski, she gives Keri a choice: get an interview or get a new job.
Joe's never forgotten the first girl to break his heart, so he's intrigued to hear Keri's back in town--and looking for him. Despite his intense need for privacy, he'll grant Keri an interview if it means a chance to finish what they started in high school.
He proposes an outrageous plan--for every day she survives with his family on their annual camping and four-wheeling trip, Keri can ask one question. Keri agrees; she's worked too hard to walk away from her career.
But the chemistry between them is still as potent as the bug spray, Joe's sister is out to avenge his broken heart and Keri hasn't ridden an ATV since she was ten. Who knew a little blackmail, a whole lot of family and some sizzling romantic interludes could make Keri reconsider the old dream of Keri & Joe 2gether 4ever.
What I thought:
I read these books out of order on accident, but it didn't ruin anything for me luckily. This was a great story. I loved the setting and it even made me a little jealous that I couldn't get on my 4 wheeler to go along with them.
It is with these kinds of stories (high school sweethearts that get a second chance years down the road) that I have a love/hate relationship with. I love them that the two people get a second chance... I hate them because I dwell on the years in between and try to imagine what they could have had if they had stuck it out. Of course, if they had stuck it out, there would be no story.
I loved this story, even if I couldn't stop thinking about the time in the middle. I thought it was romantic in the way that Keri was roped into the vacation and the strength she showed when she faced the decision of her life... again. Just incredible!
