Megan Howard used to be a successful painter - but that was a long time ago. These days she's struggling to move forward, convinced her heart is permanently broken after her last relationship and grief stricken over the loss of her father. Clinging to memories of happier times, she holds tight to her father's most cherished possession: a 1958 DeSoto Adventurer. Though she needs the money, she'll never sell it - even loaning the prized automobile to her best friend on the day of her wedding stirs up painful memories.
Avowed bachelor and car collector Noah Black has never seen a car he can live without...or a woman he can live with. Reluctant to see his best friend condemned to matrimony, he flies to Boot Creek from California to be the best man in the wedding. But after discovering that the gorgeous maid of honor owns the car of his dreams, Noah makes a pricey bet that he'll add the DeSoto to his collection, no matter what it takes.
Despite their determination to stay single, Noah and Megan soon find they can't resist each other. His attention turns from getting the car to getting the girl, and thanks to Noah, Megan can imagine a life in the present. But when the truth about Noah's wager comes to light, will it threaten to throw Megan's new perspective into reverse?
I enjoyed the story. It was a classic reluctant love story about two people NOT looking for anything or anyone finding it anyway. At first the narrator's accent was a bit to get used to as it was very southern, but it fit the story.
I have many other books on hers but did not enjoy this on. It dragged on.
this was not worth the money. I could barely finish it was so chessy and ever single moment as predictable as the next. i wont be reading any more from this author =(
