Welcome to Whiskey Creek- Heart of the Gold Country! Simon O'Neal's causing trouble again. And it's up to Gail DeMarco to stop him. Gail DeMarco left Whiskey Creek, California, to make a name for herself in Los Angeles. Her PR firm has accumulated a roster of A-list clients, including the biggest box office hit of all- sexy and unpredictable Simon O'Neal. But Simon, who's just been through a turbulent divorce, is so busy self-destructing he won't listen to anything she says. She drops him from her list-and he retaliates by taking the rest of her clients with him. Desperate to save her company, Gail has to humble herself by making a deal with Simon. The one thing he wants is custody of his son, but that's going to require a whole new image. He needs to marry some squeaky-clean girl who'll drag him off to some small, obscure place like Whiskey Creek.... Gail's the only one he can trust. She agrees to become his wife-reluctantly. But she isn't reluctant because he's too hard to like. It's because he's too hard not to love
I flat out loved this book! at first I had a bit of a hard time following the fast paced world of Public relations in Hollywood. But within a few chapters I was hooked. The characters of Simon and Gail are the true essence of work relationships changing. It was so fun to watch them enter into a contract, see what's out there and then change their relationship. The one thing I had a hard time with was Simon's Ex wife. I really wish he would have shared more with Gail on what was happening there and how it all went down. What a jerk that woman is! The life they built for themselves up in Whiskey Creek and the house were all things written so well I could picture them in my mind. These factors make for a great romantic read and a fun one!
