"Towels and washcloths were obvious, but Caleb's boxers would have to wait."
Caleb needs someone to help out with his son and the housework if he's ever going to meet his deadline. He decides to give a chance to a friend of a friend. What he doesn't expect is a young, beautiful woman who makes him forget his resolve to stay away from women. Ariel needs this job. It seems easy enough, but then again, the man is a little obsessed about leaving her detailed lists of what to do. But can she manage to do it and not get too involved? Being hurt one too many times, she's not sure she can let someone else in - what if she got hurt again?
My Opinion: I thought that this was a sweet book, even though the story and characters were a bit choppy. I felt like the story didn't flow as well as I would have liked, often leaving me confused or dizzy as it bounced from event to event. The characters are good, but have little self-reflection given to them or response to interaction. I felt that Caleb was a hard one to really understand and like, but Ariel and Joshua were good. The story was good, I just wish it had been flushed out and smoothed over a bit. I'd say it's light - very light - reading but perhaps still worth a look when you're in the mood.
I received a free copy of this book for the review. No other compensation was given. The summary and opinion are 100% my own.
