Where dangerously sexy men are concerned....SMART GIRLS THINK TWICE
With her job hanging in the balance, sociologist Emma Riley is back in her hometown of Rock Creek, Pennsylvania, for both her sisters' weddings. As if that isn't depressing enough, Emma also needs to stay focused on the research project that could save her job and launch her career. Her success hinges on sexy Rock Creek newcomer Jake Slayter.
Unfortunately, Jake wants nothing to do with Emma -- or her big project. He has his own motives for being in Rock Creek, and if there's one thing he can't afford, it's a distraction in the form of a brainy beauty like Emma. Too bad Emma has made it perfectly clear that she's way too smart to let him stand in her way. Too bad Jake has made it perfectly clear that he's way too smart to take no for an answer!
I've read the other books in the series and enjoyed them all. They were all fun to read and had great characters. But, I have mixed feelings about this book.
I enjoyed the setting, the characters, I liked the dialogue (even when at times it was repetitive), but it felt rushed...everything happened so quickly. I didn't get emotionally involved with either the hero or heroine...I wanted to know more about them and also wanted a more in depth resolution with Jake family.
