Blurb: From New York Times Bestselling author Tracy Wolff and International Bestselling author Katie Graykowski comes a sexy tale of love, laughter and lingerie …
Lyric Wright is an off-beat astrophysicist whose life is falling apart around her. After losing her fiancé to a hula dancing astrologer and losing her dress to an ill-fated leap of faith, she’s sure there’s nowhere for her life to go but up. At least until she sits down on a trans-Pacific flight next to the one man she never wanted to see again—the boy she’d lost her heart and her virginity too back before she’d learned that friendship and football don’t equal true love.
Broken down quarterback Heath Montgomery is on a plane ride to nowhere. Dodging the phone call he’s certain will end his professional football career for good, he might be Texas bound, but he knows there’s nowhere for him to go but down. But that’s before his childhood best friend and confidante plops back into his life wearing nothing but duct tape and a bad attitude. Determined not to lose her again (especially since he isn’t sure why he lost her the first time) and desperate to outrun his own shadowy future, Heath sets out to take Lyric on the ride of her life. Too bad she only dates men who actually know what her butterfly nebula is … and can find it without the help of a star chart.
Add in one passive-aggressive flight attendant with delusions of couture, a cherry red car with a crush on Neil Diamond, an over-protective sister with a black belt in Krav Maga, two parents determined to marry their spinster daughter off to the hometown hero no matter the cost, and a whole lot of lingerie popping up in all the right places at all the wrong times and you’ve got an unforgettable love story that fans of Susan Elizabeth Phillips and Rachel Gibson won’t want to miss!
Review: Yowsa. Having that photo of Heath above is messing with my head. Couple that with my other book boyfriend named Heath from Susan Elizabeth Phillips’ character in Make Me a Match and I’m pretty much halfway there. There’s something about those hard-cut muscles and the swaggering saunter that’s gets us every time. This book was deliciously naughty, with two characters who were meant to be together taking their sweet time getting there.
Lyric loved being an astrophysicist at the SETI Institute in Hawaii, but she missed being near her family in Texas. She totally didn’t miss her former fiance, Rob the Knob, who’d left her for an astrologer. Which didn’t completely explain why she was dressed up in a very slutty dress and animal print Loubotins at the SETI satellite launch party, trying to make him regret leaving her, when she found about about her dad.
But it did explain why she got in trouble so soon after dashing onto the quickest flight home. Luckily, her childhood friend was on the plane ready to save her. Unfortunately, she wasn’t speaking to him.
Heath’s trip to Hawaii hadn’t helped him escape from the reality of his knee injury like he’d hoped. Receiving continuing calls and texts from his manager, his coach, and the team owner was seriously cramping his style even though he wasn’t answering them. He didn’t want to think about life after football–or about his future… until his best childhood friend stumbled into his lap in First Class. What was Lyric doing here, and why had she stopped talking to him twelve years ago?
Lyric’s got more on her plate than she can handle, but being forced to wear a dress made out of duct-tape isn’t something one can prepare for–or running into the former love of her life while doing so. She’d avoided him for twelve years–why now, God?
Light and fluffy as a sweet meringue, this story not only titilates, it delivers. Great read!
About the Authors
Tracy Wolff collects books, English degrees and lipsticks and has been known to forget where—and sometimes who—she is when immersed in a great novel. At six she wrote her first short story—something with a rainbow and a prince—and at seven she forayed into the wonderful world of girls lit with her first Judy Blume novel. By ten she’d read everything in the young adult and classics sections of her local bookstore, so in desperation her mom started her on romance novels. And from the first page of the first book, Tracy knew she’d found her life-long love. Now an English professor at her local community college, she writes romances that run the gamut from contemporary to paranormal to erotic suspense.
