Rachel McAllister tried to dissuade Rory Callahan’s interest, she’d been hurt by love too many times before, but Rory had been as relentless as a dog after a bone. She gave in, but made one thing perfectly clear from the start—no sex until she said, “I do.” If Rachel knew one thing about men, it was that you gave them what they wanted—sex—and they’d be out the door before the sun came up. Rory has passed all her tests and jumped through her hoops to prove his love. They’re ready to say, “I do”, and Rachel’s ready to erase any of Rory’s lingering regrets about waiting to have sex.
Rory fell head over heels for Rachel at first sight. Getting her to date him was another matter altogether. He’d followed all her rules and has barely complained about her strict moral code. Now he’s going to marry her for better or worse. He’s about to find out his goody-two-shoes bride-to-be is a fiery vixen who’s too hot to handle.
Rachel McAllister was burned by sexual relationships in the past and the vixen within became hidden by the prudish image she worked hard to perfect. With a crazy family that includes a cheating father, the prude queen mother, and a vixen grandmother, Rachel’s opinion about sex and marriage was tangled between following her mother’s prudish views or her grandmother’s vixen advice. She built up walls around herself and Rory Callahan knocked them down. The characters were enjoyable and humorous. The beginning was so humorous it reminded me of something written by bestselling author Janet Evanovich. The sex wasn’t as hot or steamy as I expected, but it was still sweet. I admit, the plot seemed to drag a little but for a debut novel, Kelli Scott shows a lot of promise writing romantic comedies and sweet eroticas.
