Georganne Howard knows she's irresistible to anyone...and everyone. But when she runs away from her rich, elderly fiance, she chooses as her rescuer the one man who's impervious to her charms . John Kowalsky may find Georganne attractive, but a ditzy charm-school graduate isn't what he needs. After one night, John packs her off with a one-way ticket out of town, never expecting to see her again.

Until, that is, she reappears ten years later. But this time Georganne seems to be playing hard to get. Maybe that's because of the secret she's trying to keep, one that stems straight from that fateful night...

Wow! I didn't expect to enjoy this book but I did! this was written in 1998 and I absolutely love the pop culture references! Oh, the nostalgia!

I actually listened to the audio first because I wanted to read The Art of Running in Heels which features John and Georgie's daughter, Lexie! Also, isn't John such a sweetheart?! 😍😍😍

I still wanted more steam though... hahaha

full review to come.

I started with Gibson's later work, and picked this book up because I enjoyed the books so much. This book sort of had my name written all over it. Second chance-sports-single mom romance - it had so many plot elements I love, and I did enjoy this book.

I really liked Georgie. She was sort of written off at a young age, and because of the rejection and the label, she set the bar low for herself. She enters into a loveless relationship, thinking it is the best she will get, and that she is incapable of taking care of herself any other way. But, when push comes to shove, Georgie is able to use her talents, and she is able to overcome some major obstacles to build a business, a home, and a sort of life for herself.

There were times when I loved John, and there were times when I really wanted to smack his face. Overall, though, I thought he grew over the years of separation, and he really stepped up to the plate, taking his new surprise role seriously.

I got a lot of what I love. The sweet and gooey, the adorable and sexy, the fun and drama. I smiled, laughed, and swooned, and that is really what I want at the end of it all.
