Book Review: "When Lightning Strikes" by Brenda Novak
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 bigge... more »st 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!
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.
