Get ready to play some Texas Hold 'em...Things are getting tricky for sexy Sadie Hollowell, about to be forced into a bubblegum-pink bridesmaid dress for her little cousin Tally Lynn's wedding. And if that ain't problem enough, the second she drives back into town, the entire population of Lovett, Texas will be fixing her up with the nearest available man - any man. She needs a rescue plan now. And good-looking stranger Vince Haven might just be the perfect 'date' she needs to get her family off her back. But moody ex-Navy SEAL Vince Haven is only stopping by Lovett to visit his crazy Aunt Luraleen. 'No strings attached'is his motto, and he'll be damned if he acts as any woman's fake date! Sadie's out of luck again - but when Vince's aunt makes him an offer he can't refuse, he could be hanging around town for a while. And if Sadie gets that date after all, she might just get more than she bargained for!
A brilliantly funny and sexy romance from the wonderful Rachel Gibson.
About the Author
Rachel Gibson's storytelling career began at the age of sixteen when she ran her Chevy Vega into the side of a hill, and told her parents she'd been the victim of a hit and run. They believed her, and she's been telling stories ever since. Rachel has three children and still lives in her native Boise, Idaho. When not writing, she can be found boating on Payette Lake with Mr. Gibson, shopping for shoes, or forcing her love on an ungrateful cat. Visit her at www.rachelgibson.com
Gibson (Any Man of Mine) pairs up two damaged souls desperately in need of rescue in this distant and dark contemporary. Sadie Jo Hollowell reluctantly goes home to dusty cowtown Lovett, Tex., after a 15-year absence. Intending to be in and out for a family wedding, Sadie is surprised to fall hard for Navy SEAL Vince Haven, a sexy, silent man with a broken-down truck. Vince is fleeing his Afghanistan-related PTSD demons; searching for roots, he decides to take over his aunt's convenience store/gas station in Lovett. Meeting Sadie and discovering their sexual fireworks momentarily soothes his restless soul. The emotionally closed duo fight their deeper feelings even as their bodies steam up the pages, leaving them surprisingly closed off to readers. The first five chapters of backstory and scene-setting fail to enliven the plot, which doesn't begin to entice until present-day action takes over. Agent: Claudia Cross, Sterling Lord Literistic.

Tired of never being able to live up to her wealthy rancher father's-or the town's-expectations, Sadie Hollowell leaves tiny Lovett, TX, heads west, and carves out a footloose, happily single life selling real estate. Fifteen years later, still blissfully rootless and unwed, she returns home-for just a few days-to be in her cousin's wedding. When her father is seriously injured, she ends up staying longer and connecting with hunky ex-Navy SEAL Vince Haven. Vince is in Lovett to take over his aunt's Gas and Go, but this "no strings" arrangement with Sadie surprises them both when it moves beyond "friends with benefits" into something much more. VERDICT Sizzling sex, dialog peppered with plenty of Texas slang, a setting overflowing with country flavor, and a pair of appealing, emotionally scarred protagonists combine in a big-hearted, touching, and hilarious story you won't be able to put down. RITA Award winner Gibson (Any Man of Mine) is an icon in the romantic comedy arena; she lives in Idaho. (c) Copyright 2012. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
