When sexy, buttoned-down accountant Jeff gets sucked into Cecilia's sticky, single-mom universe, his life turns inside out. Her checkbook's a nightmare, her oldest kid hates him, and she's messy, mouth-watering, independent, and annoyingly unforgettable. He can't stay away. Quirky Cecilia has her life (sort of) in order, and doesn't need a man pointing out where it's not. A single mom with three kids and a dog can't afford a sex life, even if he is hotter than ever, and strong just when she needs him to be. Plus, his parrot hates her. In this battle between order and chaos, between hostile kids and cranky parrots, between romance and responsibility, is heartbreak inevitable? Or this time, can love win?
Started this one and couldn't stand the female lead. Thought she was ungrateful and graceless. But something compelled me to keep reading and within a couple of chapters I liked her. A few more chapters and I loved her. By the end of this humorous, plausible tale, I understood her. Give this one a few chapters and be rewarded.
Note to narrator: EXCELLENT job. Just a friendly tip though—in these parts they're not "pee-cans," they're "puh-khans." ;)
