Every step leads her deeper into danger...

Kathleen Witte is a down-to-earth girl. She has to be, with the family ranch on the verge of success. After seven months of keeping it all together by swearing off men, however, Kathleen needs a bit of fun in the sun. Waking up with a husband she can’t remember isn’t how she planned to blow off steam.

The last thing Jackson Taylor wants in his life is a down-to-earth girl. He has four weeks of freedom in which to find his birth mother. He’s done well avoiding commitment until now, so when he wakes up on a Mexican beach with Kathleen his first reaction is curiosity. When he spies the matching wedding rings on their left hands curiosity turns to concern.

Neither Jackson nor Kathleen want to stay married, but when her family shows up, they have no choice. Once back in Texas, however, can they keep this all-business marriage from turning into an all-consuming love?

MY THOUGHTS:

Kathleen wakes up on the beach with a very attractive man close by. As she tries to figure out exactly what happened, the sexy man stirs awake and they both quickly realize there is more going on than meets the eye. Like the fact that they are married. To each other. When her family is thrown into the mix, they decide to keep the ruse and act like they intended to get married the whole time. While Kathleen and Jackson struggle to keep their relationship strictly business to keep their ruse up until they can part ways, feelings and emotions become a factor and essentially bring them closer. But is it something either of them want or need?

The beginning of the book kind of made me laugh. I mean who ends up in situations like that? I felt for them that they couldn’t remember what exactly happened the previously. For some reason or another, I was annoyed that Kathleen had to hide the fact that she was married. I completely get why she did it but she is an adult and should be able to tell her father what had happened without him judging too much. It’s not like she is a wild child or anything. If you ignore that, she was a strong woman that I could easily relate to. I admired that she felt concern for Jackson and what he was trying to get accomplished.

And Jackson. All the poor guy wanted was to find his birth mother but ended up married. I am pretty sure that is any man’s nightmare right there. He did realize that if he wanted to help Kathleen with the ranch, they need to stay married. That shows he has a good heart. He confirms it throughout the book constantly. Every man should be more like Jackson.

All in all, it was an enjoyable, quick read. I can say that I will most likely pick up another of Kristina’s books in the future.

RATING:

Enjoyable, quick read.

I really enjoyed the build-up into the sexual aspect of their relationship. I wasn’t rushed and was completely believable.
