Book Description:

Her life took a wrong turn. He's driven by success. They didn't count on crashing into love...

Rachel Bennett loved her job until the day she finds herself doubting her choices.  Now she's hunting for a new career, but starting over isn't easy.  Her plan is simple—no distractions until she finds her dream job.  She didn't plan on fate throwing her a curveball in the form of a fender bender with a sexy guy in an expensive suit.

Craig Larsen is a wealthy, successful business owner with a plan of his own: survive his current PR nightmare and stay away from his overly determined ex-girlfriend.  His need for control and personal success is turned upside down when he meets Rach, a sassy redhead who can't drive.

Soon they find themselves battling with Rach's grumpy old neighbor, toilet-papering the trees of a high school nemesis, and fighting over the last slice of pizza.  Can two very different people plus one fender bender equal a chance at forever?


Rachel Bennett is floundering, she is actively searching for a job that she will love like the last job she had.  Her quest is not going as smoothly as she had hoped, especially after she gets in a slight fender bender with an arrogantly rude tempered man.  Of course her bad luck continues when she meets Craig Larsen,   the man who she was in the accident with and it just so happens his brother is dating her best friend.  Her road definitely seems to be rocky, especially when she seems destined to fall into Craig’s path.

Craig can’t wrap his head around why he is attracted to the fireball of a red head, when she seems to intentionally be trying to get under his skin.  It wasn’t as if he didn’t have enough issues with his ex-girlfriend trying to reestablish something that is definitely not in the plan, but everything about Rachel intrigues him. Unlikely allies, Rachel and Craig find themselves teaming together in a very creative way to handle those who wrong them.

I thought this was quite funny, Rachel has a temper and seems to speak first, think later causing quite a bit of arguments between herself and Craig. I liked that Craig although questioned if she was worth the trouble, still was willing to see past her attitude.  Enjoyable humorous contemporary tale.

About the Author:

I became a writer at a young age, but my moment of enlightenment came after watching the movie You’ve Got Mail.  It was then that I realized my place in life and I happily parked my butt on romance.  My dream was to create sexy vixens, hunky, half naked heroes, and above all, romance; lots and lots of butterflies in the belly, breathless first kisses and happily-ever-afters. 

So here I am pounding my tired little fingers away on a keyboard in a cluttered office with nothing but black pepper flavored sunflower seeds and Visine as my weapons for mass-romance-novel-creation. When my fingers need a break, you will find me at a table with friends, drinking a few martinis and showing off a new pair of heels. I am usually the loudest at the table and most often snorting with laughter.

Another passion of mine is cooking. Because I love everything about food—cooking it, smelling it, eating it—I always incorporate food into my writing.  I can't help it, I kind of have a one-track mind.  It’s the product of growing up with a Polish grandma who spent most of her time in the kitchen singing her face off while cooking everything with butter, and having a Filipino mother, who loves to feed me and always makes my favorite Asain dishes in abundance.  Talk about cultural diversity!

My husband is my muse, he just doesn’t know it.  Much of the humor in my books can be attributed to him, and I constantly find myself rushing to my office or the nearest scrap of paper to jot down something he’s said.  We have a good thing going—I never tell him how to restore his cars, and he never complains about my shoe obsession.  We are blessed with three beautiful kids who keep us grounded and on our toes at all times.

During the summer you will almost always find me lying out in the hot Nebraska sun at my parents' place, Tin Man Airboats, where the river is their backyard. There, I can kick back with my loud, obnoxious family around a campfire with a couple of beers.  Family is very important to me.  My sisters are my best friends and have always been my biggest cheerleaders.  I am grateful for their love and support and consider myself very lucky to have them in my life.
