Book Review: "When Lightning Strikes" by Brenda Novak

Book Description:

Welcome to Whiskey Creek -- Heart of the Gold Country!  — Simon O'Neal's causing trouble again.  — And it's up to Gail DeMarco to stop him.  — Gail DeMarco left Whiskey Creek, California, to make a name  for herself in Los Angeles. Her PR firm has accumulated a roster  of A-list clients, including the biggest box office hit of all -- sexy and unpredictable Simon O'Neal. But Simon, who's just been through a turbulent divorce, is so busy self-destructing he won't listen to anything she says. She drops him from her list -- and he retaliates by taking the rest of her clients with him.

Desperate to save her company, Gail has to humble herself by making a deal with Simon. The one thing he wants is custody  of his son, but that's going to require a whole new image.  He needs to marry some squeaky-clean girl who'll drag him  off to some small, obscure place like Whiskey Creek....

Gail's the only one he can trust. She agrees to become his wife -- reluctantly. But she isn't reluctant because he's too hard to like.  It's because he's too hard not to love!

My thoughts:

This is the first in a series based in Whiskey Creek.  This is also the first I have read by this author.  Or it has been awhile since I don't remember reading anything by her.

This book probably could be considered the typical romance book.  You knew what was going to happen in the end, but you read it anyway.  I enjoyed the book anyway.  I loved the writing.  I did keep wanting to keep reading just to see what would happen next.  Sometimes I was right - others I was not.

I look forward to reading the next in the series.

Happy Reading!!
