What an enjoyable surprise!!! This book made me smile and laugh and of course I fell in love yet again with another man. I’ve enjoyed this author in the past, it’s been awhile since I’ve read her and I’m kicking myself. I forget how much fun I have ?
Ariel is a fiesty, witty, beautiful, and loving heroine. She looks out for and takes care of those she loves. She isn’t looking for love, heck she isn’t looking for anything but getting her business up and running with her two best friends. So what happens when she is court ordered to evict her home and leave all her belongings? Where does she turn to and whom?
Eric comes to Ariel’s rescue, yes we have a Little Mermaid tale come to life. Eric is a rich, powerful, and sexy as sin single business owner that has been knocked on his ass since he first sees Ariel. Her potty mouth and her beautiful body has held his complete attention and he’s willing to do anything to catch her eye. He knows he’s in for a fight so why not start at taking her in when she’s evicted with nowhere to go. Cue the fireworks, and I mean fireworks in every area possible ?
The journey we get to go on watching Eric & Ariel’s relationship grow, struggle, and to either give up or give in is a laugh out loud journey. I loved it. I highlighted the heck out of quotes that came from Eric’s swoon worthy mouth. These are just a couple:
“Seeing you broken and hurting and sad is like having someone stick a fucking knife in my chest. I don’t like it. So I’m pissing you off because it brings me great joy to see you fired up.”
“You’re the rarest antique I’ve ever seen, and I want to spend the rest of my life making sure you know how perfectly imperfect and extraordinary you are.”
I wish we could have gotten more to the ending, it was a bit rushed in my opinion, of course you get the sense of what happens with Eric & Ariel, especially with the sweet epilogue we get, but my lover in me wanted more, yet I still loved and enjoyed it all ❤
