Finally someone creates characters who are ordinary citizens. They could be me and you. The hunks could be the contractor who comes to your home to give you a bid.
This is the story of Catherine Harris and Luke Van Buren. She's a work from home gal and he's a made it on his own remodeling contractor. Together they're fantastic!
Seducing Mr. Right is a moderately tame romance from super author, Cherry Adair. This is the first Harlequin novel of her's that I've read and, frankly, I'm impressed. It's still all Cherry the snappy come-backs, heated scenes, and great story lines.
Cat (Catherine) is a character most ladies can identify with. Forever uncertain about herself, never happy with her body, super self-conscious flaws everyone can relate to. Luke is a man's man, great business and gorgeous body. He leaves his socks under the dining table to be found another day. Sound familiar?? Yeah, in my house too.
On the proverbial reader's scale of 1 to10, I give this book a 9. It would have gotten a 10, had there been a sequel! LOL Wish a secondary character, Nick, would have his own tale to tell. I'd enjoy reading about the dame that tames that man. Oh well.
From the Inside Flap
"I've found my Mr. Right," Catherine murmured.
"Who," Luke asked dangerously, "is he?"
"I'd rather no say right now. But before I do anything, I'd like you to give me some pointers." She gave him a guileless look. "Your input will be invaluable...because he's very much like you."
"You know. Sexy. Sophisticated. A ladies man."
Luke groaned. "A player." He raked his fingers through his hair until it stood up like a shark fin.
Catherine smiled. "Exactly. If anyone can tell me how to seduce a player, you'd be the one."
Luke leaned closer, crowding her. "You want me to teach you how to seduce a man?"
"Don't think you can?" Cat taunted.
"If I wanted to, which I don't, I would."
Cat grinned. "Bet you can't."
A sassy, seductive, contemporary love story. I'll read any book that Cherry Adair writes!
Written before Cherry Adair hit the big time, she evoked plenty of heat in this piece of fluff for the Harlequin Temptation line.
When Catherine Harris' mother married Luke Van Buren's father, Cat was ecstatic that she would be gaining a big brother. It took a long time, but Luke finally accepted her. Now all grown up, Cat's feelings have changed. She is in love with Luke, but he still treats her like his kid sister, not seeing the woman she has become. Cat hopes to change that by asking Luke to help her find a husband. Luke promised his father that he would always protect Cat, but his feelings for her are anything but brotherly. Now that Cat has moved into Luke's apartment, he's finding it hard to keep his hands and his feelings to himself.
This was a cute story. This plot may have been used many times before, but these characters made it work. I liked both Cat and Luke, but my favorite character was Luke's best friend, Nick. After Cat confided her feelings to Nick, he does everything he can to help her including making Luke very jealous. I wish Cherry Adair had written a book for him. My rating: 4 Stars.
I like everything Cherry Adair writes.
