Come heck or high water, Gracie Snow is determined to track down the legendary ex-jock Bobby Tom Denton and drag him back home to Heaven, Texas, to begin shooting his first motion picture. But taming an egotistical cowboy in a ’57 T-Bird might be more than this prim Ohio wallflower can handle. Despite his dazzling good looks and killer charm, Bobby Tom has reservations about being movie star–and no plans to cooperate with the bossy little virgins whom he can’t get off his mind or out of his life. Instead, the hellraising playboy decides to make her over from plain Janet to Texas wildcat.
But nothing’s more dangerous than a wildcat with an angel’s heart in a town too small for a bad boy to hide. And all hell breaks loose when two unforgettable people discover love, laughter, passion–and a match that can be made only in Heaven.
This is the second book in the Chicago Stars series and I must say I loved it. Like the first (It Had to be You) it’s funny, touching and hot!
It grabs you right from the start and doesn’t let go until the last page..
Bobby does his best to come across as a womanizing charming playboy but underneath his boyish charm is a sensitive and vulnerable man who needs a woman who can see through his outward facade and love him despite for who he is and not what he is.
Gracie is this woman. Bossy, determined, and a real sweetheart always putting other people’s interests first. She may be a homely virgin but she’s s a tough cookie to dodge. And also the only woman who sees the real Bobby Tom.
The chemistry between Bobby Tom and Gracie is defenitely there but because of them being so different they keep fighting it. Their dialogues are outright funny, I had many laugh-out-loud moments reading this book.
It was a great story with funny characters, humorous dialogue and some sexy love-scenes that were real hot without them even going all the way.
Secondary to the romance between Gracie and Bobby Tom there’s also a storyline of the romance between Bobby Tom’s mother and the town’s bad boy who had been in love with her since highschool. Where normally a secondary romance tends to distract you from the main story, it didn’t in this book. It blended into it perfectly and seamlessly and I loved reading it and now I’m looking forward for the next Chicago Stars book!
