This book sure proved that opposites really do attract!
Marcus Colby was born into money, but is very successful himself in real estate. He expects his life to be completely in order and he has a hard time when things go differently than he is expecting. Marcus' Aunt Sarah was really the only family member that he actually liked and she just passed away unexpectedly while walking her dog in the woods. While Marcus was wandering through the woods to find the place where he lost his aunt, he comes across a woman sitting alone in the woods on the boardwalk he needed to cross. As Marcus walks closer, he hears the woman talking to herself and he thinks she is crazy....something he has no time for in his life.
Grace Davingham may be the daughter of the famous rock star, Jerry Davingham and the equally as famous super model, Sophie Whalley, but she was tired of being in the spotlight....especially after what happened with her ex-boyfriend. All Grace wanted was to paint wildlife pictures and bring to light the damage being done to the wildlife....so Grace moved to Eastbridge where life was way less quiet.
The first meeting of Marcus and Grace was awesome. It was so funny. I loved how these two were so different yet they seemed to compliment each other perfectly. Grace is so laid back you could feel at times like it drove Marcus crazy.
When Marcus found out he inherited his aunt's dog, a Great Dane named Mr. Pipplepotts all hell breaks loose. He can't handle a dog in his life, let alone a huge dog! This dog added so much comedy to the story! He was great! This big dog though helps bring Marcus into Grace's life more often, which he is starting to realize he enjoys. As Marcus and Grace start to spend more and more time together, it is very obvious they are meant to be together. Of course, along the way there are a few bumps (his family, her family, work etc...) but eventually they end up with their happy ending.
Overall, this was a wonderful, enjoyable read, that was filled with laughter, sadness and sexy swooning. Great job!
