“I bet I can untangle you.”
At an airport baggage claim, Penny Darling looks up from her knotted mess of ear buds to find the sexiest hunk of man she’s ever seen. He’s got a military haircut, a scar through his eyebrow, and he’s rocking a pastel pink dress shirt like only a real man can. But Penny is on a man-free diet so she leaves the airport without succumbing to his delicious double-entendres…or his dreamy dimples.
PI Russ Macklin can’t take his eyes off Penny. As she sashays out of the airport with hips swaying and curls bouncing, he suspects they may share more than just sweltering chemistry. That suitcase she’s rolling along behind her? It looks a lot like his.
Because it is.
When he tracks her down, he holds her bag hostage in exchange for a date. Their night begins with margaritas and ends in urgent care, and Russ proves that Cosmo’s theory about a very particular type of orgasm was oh-so-wrong.
In Penny, Russ finds a small-town sweetheart with a very naughty side. For the first time ever, he’s thinking about picket fences. Penny finds in Russ a loving, caring man who understands the power of massaging showerheads.
But Russ is only in Port Flamingo for a week. They agree it’ll be a fling and nothing more. Because really, they can’t fall ass-over-teakettle in love just like that…
Dual POV. No cheating.
Featuring a big drooly dog named Guppy.
OH MY GOODNESS! Is Nicola Rendell trying to ruin me for all other authors? Cause I kind of think she is succeeding (although I could never stop reading other author’s work because hello…BOOK WH*RE)! Once again my heart was squeezed tight and I was left in a total book hangover.
Russ and Penny were one of the author’s most addictive characters and I couldn’t put it down. This story was hands down a binge-worthy read and it pained me, almost literally, to put it down in-between study sessions ← darn adult life always getting in the way 😢. This couple made me laugh and cry uncontrollably at times and I absolutely couldn’t get enough. Oh and did I mention that this story is hot, hot and oh yeah HOT! I am still sitting over here swooning hours after finishing it!
1I couldn’t recommend this story enough! Let Nicola Rendell take you on one of the best reading journeys you will ever have!
