Series: Wildfire Lake #2
Genres: Contemporary Romance
Another sweet & steamy read from New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Skye Jordan!
Some women want roses and I love yous. I want hot guys and great sex.
Maybe I've absorbed too much testosterone employed in the male dominated world of mechanics, only, I'm no longer working on a cruise ship with sexy men around every corner. I'm building a business with my two best friends in a small town where reputation is everything.
But it’s only six months before I can take my money and run--straight back to the sea. Only this time I'll have my own sailboat, choose my own destinations, and live by my own rules.
When I meet Dr. Delicious over stitches, we've got instant heat, but he comes with major drawbacks, starting with an affinity for dating and ending with his status as a single dad.
Before I know it, I'm putting together a frilly "dream bed" for Christmas and teaching his oldest to repair a carburetor.
Dr. Delicious is the very definition of commitment, and falling for him is a non-negotiable no way.
Too bad my heart hasn’t gotten that memo.
Going Under is book two in the Wildfire Lake series and delivers a single dad doctor and a marine mechanic together in a “no strings attached” situation.
KT does not do relationships. She keeps her hook ups discrete and distant. She never hooks up with anyone from town. When she lands herself in the hospital and Dr. Lantham stitches her up, she reconsiders. She knows it’s a terrible idea, but she is really attracted to him. KT was a bit difficult to warm up to as a character because she is a bit cold and standoffish. Her friends are more bubbly and happy, which makes KT seem even more dour at times. Going Under starts with the story of how the 3 women met, and instantly you understand their deeply bonded friendship.
“Dr. Delicious” as KT dubs him, is a single dad with 3 girls. I mean, how could you not just love him from the start!? His wife passed away from cancer and he moved to the small lake community to be closer to family who could help him with the girls. The girls are just adorable and really bring a sparkle to Going Under. I did like KT’s bond with Violet, the oldest. It showed a less gruff exterior for KT.
There is some angst in that KT isn’t planning on sticking around town. After she and her friends get their business up and running, she is planning on getting a boat and sailing away (literally). She spends a lot of time trying to keep Ben at a distance and I wanted to shake her. However, I think there is something admirable in not throwing away your goals for a hot guy. She just seemed so stubborn and unwilling to consider a way to compromise. Honestly, I think I was just really tough on KT for some reason.
Going Under will appeal to fans of small town romance and heroines with a hard outer shell.
