This author is hilarious! Her take on what the characters see and feel had me rolling on the floor! (He was supposed to be firmly in control, not uncontrollably firm.) Chris "Crash" Dunmoor is 6 feet plus of muscle, long hair with a smart-ass attitude who is "forced" by his ailing grandmother to take art history from Vanessa Tower who is writing a book on Crash's grandfather's artwork. Crash hasn't been the same since he took his brother on a diving expedition where he drowned. Crash has blamed himself and believes that his grandfather always cared more for Steven until he sees the paintings that his grandfather has done. He also believes that Vanessa is trying to hoodwink his grandmother out of the paintings for her college which will also get her a nice pay raise and tenure. Together they discover that both have been victims of their losses; she's hiding from her pain by being safe and he's running from his by doing every dangerous thing known to man (hang-gliding, skydiving, deep sea diving, etc.)
This one did not draw you in like her others books. Hard to get a feel for the characters but still a good read.
Vanessa Tower has never done anything reckless in her life-then again, she's never met anyone like Christopher "Crash" Dunmoor. The man spends his days jumping out of airplanes. canoeing down raging rivers, doing anything for a thrill--and prim, proper, studious Vanessa doesn't need that sort of excitement.
A confirmed loner with no ties and painful secrets, Crash knows wild is the only way to live. Yet this straighlaced lady he's gotten involved with is turning out to be a bigger turn-on then adrenaline!! It's crazy to think he could ever have anything in common with this gorgeous bookworm. So why is his heart telling him that holding her, touching her, and tasting her would be t he most tantalizing adventure of all?
This book was very entertaining and fun.
"More sassy, delightful romantic romps from Award winning author Karen Kendall.
I had to laugh at several of the happenings in this story. From the hormones clucking like a gaggle of hysterical hens causing the professor problems, the knitting kitty making the department head sneeze (He deserved much worse!), the copy machine that hated her and the students who attacked him.
Filled with a feisty grandmother and a girlfriend who explains what a dildo is. This book is filled with heart lightening incidents, a touch of sadness, and anger at the injustice for her friend. You'll root for the professor standing up to the system with pride and his rescue with joy.
