New York Times bestselling author Susan Andersen has captivated readers everywhere with her sassy romances. Here, a man who doesn't believe in love and a woman who doesn't trust in it find out just how wrong they can be... A Man With a Past J.D. Carver learned life's tough lessons on the streets, so when an unexpected inheritance sends him to the Star Lake Lodge to claim his half, he's expecting trouble. Being greeted with open arms by the whole Lawrence gang—feisty Aunt Sophy and calm Uncle Ben, clearly off-limits Dru and her young son, Tate—just convinces him they're working an angle, and he's determined to uncover it. Even though a tiny part of him longs for the home-and-hearth life they have... A Woman With a Reputation Dru's finally beaten her bad-girl reputation, and though the Lodge may not be exciting, she's fiercely protective of her quiet home. Hard-eyed J.D.'s ability to push all her buttons—some of which haven't been pushed in way too long—just proves how wrong he is for her. So why does her son hero-worship the guy? And why does her heart clench when he gets that "nose pressed against the candy shop window" look on his face In Love . . . and All Shook Up They thought they knew everything their lives had to offer . . . until they met. Can a failed good girl and a guy who never caught a break learn to believe in one another long enough to trust their love?

Dru is a 28 year old woman. She has a 10 year old son. She is the general manager of an alpine resort, which implies she's not dumb as a brick. Yet she acts like a 7th grader. Worry not, J.D. is just as bad: being rude, mistrustful (that doesn't even sound like a real word), and overly harsh towards...
3 1/2 stars rounded up This started strong then kinda fell flat in the end.
Quick, fun read. Nothing amazing but perfect when you want something to help pass a rainy afternoon.
Andersen is more miss than hit for me... this was pretty typical of her work, lots of lustful internal monologues that I find dull. But I liked the hero, so I kept reading and the story picked up towards the end. J.D. is a former j.d. who's worked to turn his life around, but is still very troubled...
I knew this story would be right up my alley. I love happy endings.
