Simon Danbury, an internationally sought after motivational speaker, helps women from all walks of life with love, self-esteem, dating and career building skills. Handsome, witty and wealthy, Simon seemingly has everything a man could want. But appearances can be deceiving. While Simon may have the answers for millions of women all over the world, when it comes to his own love life, he’s a giant, sexy mess. Divorced, and convinced that he’ll never love again, the very last thing he expects is one Charly Boudreaux.
Charly doesn’t want to be at this seminar in the middle of nowhere, but her sister made her go. She’s the one who has her life together. Great career, amazing family, nice home, and loyal friends. So what if she doesn’t have a man? She doesn’t need one. If she’s learned anything in her almost thirty years, it’s that men are more trouble than they’re worth. And they have a nasty habit of breaking your heart into a million tiny pieces. So she’ll sit through all of Simon’s touchy feely crap and go home and get on with her life. Except Simon isn’t really spouting crap, and when he smiles at her, the butterflies are ridiculous.
Never mixing business with pleasure, Simon finds Charly, a bright spot in a universe that’s been dark for too long. But will he be able to resist her? And why would he want to?
Book 4 in the Boudreaux series focuses on sister Charly (Charlotte), owner of Head Over Heels show store. Charly is in a slump, and she goes to a seminar in Montana run by Simon Danbury, a British motivational speaker who has devoted his life to helping women empower themselves.
Charly and Simon have an instant connection. Charly keeps to herself, and Simon seems to run into her often during their two week retreat. Simon has a strict rule about not sleeping with his clients, but Charly is special.
There were a few times during the last 25% of the book that I wanted to punch Simon in the face. He was presumptuous and annoying at points; Charly, on the other hand, was a kick ass heroine. She was cool and collected, and very strong, despite her insecurities. I really liked her. For most of the rest of the book, Simon was sweet and romantic, but near the end, he was annoying.
Of course, the Boudreaux siblings played a big role in the background. I had a feeling the next book was going to be about Beau, and I was right:) I’m excited to read his book.
Overall, this was another solid book in the series.
