He won’t stay put for a woman, and she won’t chase after any man…

Mitch Kowalski lives out of a suitcase—and he likes it that way. Traveling for work has the added bonus of scaring off women who would otherwise try to tie him down. But when he’s called home to help with the family lodge, he’s intrigued by the new girl in town and her insistence that she doesn’t need a man. If there’s one thing Mitch can’t resist, it’s a challenge.

After a nomadic childhood, Paige Sullivan is finally putting down roots. Determined to stand on her own two feet, she lives by the motto “Men are a luxury, not a necessity.” But when Mr. Tall, Dark and Hot pulls up a stool in her diner and offers her six weeks of naughty fun with a built-in expiration date, she’s tempted to indulge.

They’re the perfect match for a no-strings fling. Until they realize their sexy affair has become anything but casual…

Why I Read this Book: The author is on my auto-buy list.

What I Liked: Mitch doesn’t back down when Paige turns him down. He’s persistent and goes after what he wants. Love it!

The author doesn’t make things too serious. She’ll stick in something funny to lighten the mood. It makes for a fun, light read.

There’s a backstory going on between Rose, the lodge keeper, and Andy. Rose has held a grudge against Andy for almost 3 decades. It was interesting to see what caused the grudge and I’m glad there was a conclusion to that story arc in this book.

I’m looking forward to Josh and Katie’s story. There’s obviously something going on there, though I’m not sure if Josh realizes it yet.

What I Didn’t Like: The story lost a bit of momentum around the middle of the book but picked back up shortly after.

Memorable Moments:

Oh, that’s just what she needed after two-plus years of self-imposed celibacy – a hot guy between her legs and a vibrator on wheels under her.

“Who open jars for you?”

“I have a little gadget that does that.”

“But…” He grinned. “What about sex?”

“I have a little gadget that does that, too.”

Overall Impression: Shannon Stacey writes great romantic comedies and I’m always in the mood for one of her books. If only she could write faster…..
