She sparkles. He growls. Baring their true feelings could be the start of a wild love story—or the end of it—in a sexy romantic comedy by a USA Today bestselling author.
One spilled glass of wine and bridesmaid Ensley James is ejected from a country club wedding in the rain. Ensley looks on the bright side. That would be her longtime crush Drew Daniels. The moody, broody, skin-pricklingly sexy groomsman is tossed out with her. Waiting out a hot spring storm in a cozy shed for two, it’s time for Drew’s confession: he’s strictly a one-nighter. Ensley’s dare? Give her three date nights and see where it goes.
A veterinarian like Drew is great when it comes to puppy love, but he has his reasons for his rules about women: no true feelings, just flings. So why agree to Ensley’s three-date challenge? Easy. Miss Ray of Freaking Sunshine is absolutely irresistible. Night after night, Ensley and Drew can’t ignore the heat, the growing intimacy—and the unexpected complications. Drew’s walls may be crumbling, but Ensley’s still at risk of being another tryst.
Especially with Ensley’s final confession. This one could be their rockiest challenge yet.
This book hooked me from the start! I loved so many things about it: the banter, the hilarious situations they found themselves in, the supporting characters, all of it! I’ve come to expect I will love those things from the other books I’ve read by this author, and it’s great to know she’s continued to not disappoint!
It started off with a majorly big crazy event when Ensley gets kicked out of the country club where her best friend is getting married because of the wicked stepmother of the bride! However the man who comes to her rescue, Drew, is perfect. While he doesn’t come off as much of a grump at first during their escape to the maintenance shed at the country club to get out of the rainstorm, as he goes back to the real world and we see his interactions with his employees and others at his vet clinic, wow is he a grump!
Now while I liked Ensley’s idea to go help him out, the miscommunication in her taking the job was a little unrealistic IMO, but that’s okay I guess since it led to the little misunderstanding that was the big darkest night point of the story. Even though you know that I am not a fan of those types of miscommunications, so that did make me drop the rating here on my blog to a 4.5 from the 5 stars I will put on review sites. I loved the vet clinic, although I could never work at one because of how sad I would be with the animals who were hurting. But it was neat to have that as part of the story. And I did love that the owner who kept calling about her dog she was worried about was a dachshund owner, because I get that!!! lol I might be a little over-concerned about my dogs. Oh, and I also was not a fan of how Ensley’s “favorite” boss talked about the new boss, not really giving it to her straight.
I enjoyed the look into Ensley’s sisters’ lives too, and I’m hoping, I think that the other books in the series will be their stories? The next book looks like it is for sure. A wonderful new book from J.J. Knight and I’m looking forward to reading the e-galley of the second one that I have soon!
