I Do!

The first I have read by this author, or of this series I was able to get a recap of earlier matches all wrapped up with a short and quick new match for Nathan and Becca.  Rachel Gibson’s writing is clever and pithy, interactions are well written and quick introductions and backstory gives readers a sense of the characters that enhances their appearance.

Not having known the story or characters, the business of the early half of the story made some of the comings and goings feel rushed, although their connections are present and palpable in their interactions.  For his part, Nathan is trying to repair a ‘bad boy’ reputation, particularly with Becca.  He lost a few points from me with his not quite ‘clearing his decks’ with the current girlfriend before moving on to pursue Becca.  I will give back a point for actually ‘feeling bad’ about it – but the whole questionable decisions on his part is there and did give me pause.

Overall though, for a novella, the quick romance between Becca and Nate and the other happy relationships, a wedding and a new baby. Their relationship developed and blossomed quickly, while I won’t say “too” quickly, I do wish we had more time with them as they formulated their bond.  It was a fun read nonetheless, and I think those who have read this series from the beginning will adore this installment.

But Becca Ramsey doesn't have time for all that. Fresh out of beauty school, Becca's all business … and the last thing she needs is bad boy Nate Parrish anywhere in her life.

Tasty Excerpt

 

Rebecca Ramsey unplugged the iPod, then leaned beneath the raised hood. She cupped her hands around her mouth and yelled, “Hello!”

A hollow thud like someone thumped a watermelon came from beneath the car mingled with the sound of tools hitting concrete.

Becca wrinkled her nose and whispered, “Ouch.” She straightened to the sound of a painful moan and a few “goddamn its.” Then two greasy hands reached from beneath and grabbed the shiny bumper. Under the smudges of grease, the head of a Chinese dragon breathed fire across the back of his hand. Squeaky little wheels rolled the rest of him from under the car. Long legs and a spiky belt led to a dirt-smudged white T-shirt over a flat belly. Next came hard forearms and balls of muscular shoulders. The rest of the dragon tattoo wrapped up his arm, and the tail disappeared under the T-shirt sleeve. His square chin and jaw were covered in dark stubble, and a frown pulled at the corners of his mouth. Then eyes the color of a clear Texas sky slid into view and stared up at her. Angry blue eyes beneath dark slashes of brows and surrounded by dark lashes. An even angrier red mark on his forehead seemed to turn redder by the second.

Despite the furious scowl and horrible welt, hideous spiky belt and tacky tattoo, he was so ridiculously hot, Becca felt her insides melt. He rubbed a greasy hand across the welt on his forehead. “Can I do something for you?”

“Yes.” She’d met guys like him before. Guys who looked good in anything from tight T-shirts and jeans to a Sunday suit and tie. Guys who looked at a girl and took her breath away. She’d always been a sucker for guys like him. Hot guys with cool names like Tucker or Slade or Toby Ray. Or, in this case, Nathan Parrish.
