A short and sweet sexy novella about an beautiful but lonely novelist and a handsome New York literary agent who won't take no for answer.
For years Shane had been intrigued by Gabby. She's tough and no-nonsense. Yet despite that Shane had sensed something in Gabby and was attracted to her. They've known each other for as long as Gabby had been writing and although they haven't met personally, they pretty much know each other well. But Gabby is stubborn and won't give an inch professionally or personally. But when Shane finally made good on his promise to come to Gabby, she has nowhere to run.
I thoroughly enjoyed this little novella. Gabby, who we met in Mike's Way Back as the taciturn owner of Through A Looking Glass has been keeping a big secret. It was nice to see Gabby squirm and Shane was just the right man to do that. He's resolute in his pursuit which made him a great character to read. And while their relationship might appeal as rushed to some, for me it didn't since I realized that they have known each other for years and Shane was the only person other than John who truly ever knew the real Gabby.
I liked the way the author included Gabby's relationship with John. And his passing was a bittersweet moment for me especially when he left her something that was dear to him and his late wife. His letter was touching and this connection showed a side to Gabby that few rarely see. It made her a more sympathetic character because honestly, I had to admit that I had a hard time liking Gabby. She didn't make it easy for me to like her. Although, I understood her because of what she went through in high school, I just couldn't connect with her on a visceral level. But her relationship with John gave me a glimpse of that. Had this book been longer, I'm pretty sure Gabby would continue to grow on me.
My RATING: 3.5 stars!
