In this romantic, funny, and heartwarming classic novel, #1 New York Times bestselling author Tami Hoag poignantly captures one eventful summer in the life of a woman facing the ultimate relationship dilemma.
It took only one look for Genna Hastings to make up her mind about her new next-door neighbor, J. J. Hennessy. She knew his type all too well: Jared Jay Hennessy was tall and handsome, a man who thought he was God’s gift to women. From the pink flamingos dotting his front yard to the all-night boozy barbecues, he threatened to disrupt Genna’s peaceful summer off from teaching. But beneath his carefree smile and teasing nature, J.J. was a man as serious about the future as he was about Genna. He’d come to this quiet Connecticut town to change his life, and he challenged Genna to help him become Mr. Right. It was a challenge she knew she’d be smart to refuse . . . and one J.J. knew she couldn’t resist.
J. J. is hilarious! He wears an earring, has a daughter, and has a manequin in his front yard! Along with several flamingos! And for plain 'ole Genna next door, this is just too much. But when the two of them meet, the chemistry is more than either one imagined and J.J. is just arrogant enough to pursue it. He comes up with a plan for them to spend time together and even thought Genna knows it's a bad idea, she believes him to be sincere, so she agrees to help him out.J.J. is also a football player, so that particular fact kept me going with this one. And with an ending as spectacular as this book had, I could have laughed all the way to the library. J.J.'s persistance in getting what he wants is often quite funny and most of the time kept Genna on her toes. Overall, this was a great book. I've read this author before, but never this genre. But this one is worth checking out if you want something light and fun that doesn't require any brain power.read more
