Love is one dare neither of them can take...
Arabella Stone, Nashville’s darling, is eager to shuck her prim-and-proper rep, and a few wild months spent checking items off her “ summer bucket list” is the way to do it. First up: kiss the man she’s crushed on since she wore a training bra, the bad boy of country himself, Blue bassist Charlie Tucker.
For Charlie, a beautiful woman flirting with him isn’t out of the norm—but a beautiful woman bolting after the hottest kiss of his life sure is. And when he finds out his kiss-and-run Cinderella is none other than Arabella Stone, daughter of his label’s CEO, he knows he’s in trouble. Because not only is she a Stone, she’s also his employee for the next few months at the recording studio he just bought.
Over the course of one thrilling summer, Arabella and Charlie chip away at her bucket list and fight the simmering attraction between them...knowing that once it's all over, so is their time together.
They needed to write guidebooks for this sort of thing. The Idiot's Guide to Flirting With the Man of Your (Literal) Dreams Who Clearly Doesn't Know You Exist. Bonus material could include how to handle disastrous meet-cutes in the john.
Wew! That was such a fun book to read! I looked at the book and saw Rachel Harris (I've read two of her other books and I love, too) and I kinda know I'll love it. Obviously, my hunch has been correct because from the moment I picked this book up, I didn't want to stop reading.
This book follows Ella and her
disastrous funny and wild months to cross off the items in her summer bucket list. First in her list is to kiss her crush-for-the-longest-time, Charlie Tucker. It bite her in the ass, though, when she found out later that he'll be her boss for her internship, talk about awkward. Over the course of summer, Charlie helped Ella cross off the items in her list while fighting the attraction that both of them definitely feel.
The story line was not original, I'll have to be honest about that, but Rachel made it more fun and interesting to read. I have to stifle my laugh a couple of times, while reading this book, because people might think I'm a nutjob. I literally couldn't praise Rachel well for this book. It made me smile, that's for sure. The characters, their development and back stories was well written and developed. The pacing was steady, just as I like it.
Overall, this was so awesome. I'm actually pretty speechless. I'm not sure I can put into words how much this book made me smile and affected me. Yes, this focuses mainly about romance there's an underlying issue that Rachel perfectly pulled off
Did I like the ending? YES.
Is it a page turner? YESYES.
Would I re-read it again? YESYESYES.
