Kallie Masters has spent the past seven years becoming a renowned reviewer, foregoing any romantic entanglements for the sake of her job. Good or bad, she is highly respected by her readers and peers. But when an arrogant author sends death threats in response to Kallie’s scathing review of his latest novel, her boss sends her on a weekend getaway.
Kallie’s mountaintop respite is shattered when she runs into Hank Fogle with his drop-dead gorgeous eyes and frat-boy attitude. Denying the unmistakable chemistry between them, Kallie steels herself against the attraction, determined to remain aloof and free of the mess this man would surely bring into her life.
Can the magic of the Smokies allow her to let things flow naturally between them or will she fall into a lustful trap that will only break her heart in the end?
“That’s right. Just walk away. Don’t worry about me. Don’t offer to pay for what you did. No worries, I will handle it myself. Just like I always do.” Kallie proceeded to pack up her soaked belongings and muttered about inconsiderate, senseless jerks.
The man turned around asking, “Pay for what?”
“Oh, now you want to know? Well, Mr. Pool God, if I must repeat myself again, you ruined my laptop and my e-reader. They are currently full of the water you so kindly sent cascading over them and me.” Kallie pointed to the chaise lounge she’d occupied, still soaked and sitting in a puddle.
“What are you talking about? Do you always talk in riddles?”
Ugh, men!. "Listen, just be a gentleman and at least offer to pay for the damages.”
“Me? Why? You’re the one who brought the gadgets to a pool. Did you ever stop to think that might not be the best idea?”
The man grabbed a towel from a nearby bench and began wiping down each and every kissable inch of skin on his body. Kallie could see him as one of those guys in the shaving cream commercials on TV. Lean, rock-hard abs, asses women long to claw and that irritated her even more. The guy ruined her things and he was a jerk. Plain and simple! What the hell was she thinking getting all hot and bothered by some strange, laptop-murdering flake?
