Description


He's the last man on earth she should want...

For a guy she's fantasized about throttling, Jake Bradshaw sure is easy on the eyes. In fact, he seriously tempts inn manager Jenny Salazar to put her hands to better use. Except this is the guy who left Razor Bay--and his young son, Austin, whom Jenny adores like her own--to become a globe-trotting photojournalist. He can't just waltz back and claim Austin now.

Jake was little more than a kid himself when he became a dad. Sure, he'd dreamed of escaping the resort town, but he'd also truly believed that Austin was better off with his grandparents. Now he wants--no, needs--to make up for his mistake. He intends to stay in Razor Bay only until he can convince Austin to return with him to New York. Trouble is, with sexy, protective, utterly irresistible Jenny in his life, and his bed, he may never want to leave....

        June 18, 2012
        This warm summer contemporary melts hearts with the simultaneous blossoming of familial and romantic love. Selfish young Jake Bradshaw left his newborn son, Austin, in the care of his dead wife’s parents, Kathy and Emmett Pierce, and escaped the small resort town of Razor Bay, Wash., to become a world-traveling photographer. Thirteen years later, the Pierces die and newly mature Jake decides to step up as a dad and take Austin across the country to big city life in Manhattan. But teen Austin and his temporary guardian, petite Jenny Salazar, an orphan raised by the Pierces as Austin’s big sister, are hard to convince. Sexual tension builds as Jenny succumbs to intense attraction to Jake and the lack of other prospects in Razor Bay, and Jake tries to prove he’s grown up and learned how to be a dad. Though the plot is unsurprising and the characterization is a bit stereotyped, Andersen’s mastery of the heartstring tug makes this light story emotionally satisfying. Agent: Meg Ruley, the Jane Rotrosen Agency.

        To Jennifer Salazar, 13-year-old Austin has always been just like a younger brother, so when the grandparents who raised him die, having named Jenny temporary guardian, she and Austin both expect it to become permanent. Then Jake Bradshaw, world-class photographer and Austin's absent dad, arrives with ideas of his own. But making up for lost time isn't easy with a resentful teenager, even with fiery, no-nonsense Jenny's reluctant help, and Jake is a babe in the woods when it comes to parenting. Laugh-out-loud humor, heart-wrenching emotions, gripping sexual tension, and superb, insightful characterizations of both the adults and the teens make this story of ordinary people facing tough issues with courage and grace a cut above the rest. VERDICT Realistic, sexy, funny, and tender, this heartwarming charmer is classic Andersen and is sure to leave you smiling. Andersen (Playing Dirty) lives in the Seattle area.
