Arsenal: On The Double: Overdrawn, Under the Weather, Overslept, Underpants, Over the Moon, Under the Table: A Terrace
Massages all the time and feeling embarrassed to be in a swimsuit in front of him See Carly is a curvy girl and she s got ow self esteem because of her backstory Her mother always wanted to be a model but couldn t make it So when she was blessed with a naturally beautiful daughter Carly s sister she put all her ove and focus on giving that daughter everything she wanted and needed to become a star while ignoring and belittling Carly Also when Carly was 16 she went to a party where she was sexually assaulted but not full on raped by a drunk rich boy Carly s mother convinced her not to report the crime because it was Carly s word against the boy s and since his parents were rich no one would believe her story which honestly is probably EXACTLY what would have gone down So those two factors have ed Carly to want to do everything in her power to keep attention as far away as possible She deliberately dresses in shapeless clothes doesn t wear makeup and just fades into the background everywhere she goesWe get a few of Luis and Carly s interactions described but not many really Not enough to establish any kind of bond between them There s a ot of focus on how Carly is feeling either embarrassed by her body or embarrassed by her body s response to Luis s proximity and hopes he hasn t noticed but nothing much in the way of conversation We don t get much of Luis s perspective but what ittle we do see doesn t really help the situation much In the beginning he found himself attracted to Carly and he was rather unflatteringly shocked at his own body s response He refers to her as Miss Mouse and other eually derogatory things while mentally comparing her to all the other women he s slept with in the past and finding her Sometime After Midnight lackingEventually the passion that has been building bubbles over in the massage room and Luis is all set to have sex But then he says something insufferably arrogant and it yanks Carly back to reality She reflects that Luis is way out of hereague and rightly assumes that his sudden interest is just a result of propinuity So she pushes him away He s completely thunderstruck that any woman could or would resist him and demands an explanation Carly blurts out that she s a virgin and that makes her a freak as if it s something shameful Then she runs up to her room Luis follows her and she confesses to her almost rape He insists that what she needs is not a trip to a therapist so she can work out her issues in a healthy way but rather a visit to Love Dr Luis s sexual healing rehab center She agrees to give it a shotThe next day Luis gives his staff the day off and prepares to seduce Carly the right way by starting with dinner But Carly has gotten cold feet and started fretting about whether to call the whole thing off She s in her room dithering when Luis comes to find her and basically just won t take no for an answer though it s not really a forced seduction Of course THE SEX IS KENDRICK HAS AN EASY WRITING STYLE sex is Kendrick has an easy writing style better than average characterisation The hero was typically flawed your average commitment phobic playboy but I Stop Inflammation Now!: A Step-By-Step Plan to Prevent, Treat, and Reverse Inflammation--The Leading Cause of Heart Disease and Related Conditions like that he didn t pander to the heroine s insecurities If you don tike your appearance then change it but don t keep doing nothing and then complaining about it but don t keep doing nothing and then complaining about because it s boring view spoiler I also Eyes Behind the Lines: L Company Rangers in Vietnam, 1969 like that he didn t allow the sister s arrival to blow out into a massive misunderstanding hide spoiler I expected it to be a cute harleuin instaove funny and sexy book But this was notSure the synopsis says its harleuin but the bad writing says something elseCarly connor is a poor girl she works for Luis who is a billionaire retired race car driver She works in one of his hug mansions that he rarely visits But after the injury to his School Dazed leg thateaves him needing bed rest and physio he chooses the same mansion that carly works in spend his

Ension between them grows When Luis whisks her away to his villa in the south of France how ong will she be able to deny the temptation he posesespecially when he makes a second shocking propositio. .
My eyes big time I oved the heroine tho great story and great characters This was basically a cookie cutter book It s a 100% bog standard run of the mill plot with absolutely no surprises and no juicy plot Naples! lines to make things exciting Just by reading the dust jacket you can absolutely predict everything thatl happen In a word the book is boring There s nothing wrong with the writing style and the characters aren t too annoying but there s just no meat to it Even the Black Moment and the reconciliation were a snore And nobody got any comeuppance for their bad behavior at the end either On the whole I can t recommend this one as anything other than a completely mindless veg out readview spoilerThe story opens with Carly working as Luis s housekeeper She s been working for him some undefined amount of time but it s ong enough FOR HER TO HAVE BECOME WELL ACUAINTED WITH LUIS her to have become well acuainted with Luis manwhore ways We get a fun ittle montage of memories from Carly at the beginning where she recounts how many times she s stumbled across naked supermodels in the house who were Itsuka lying in wait for Luis And then there were all the times she s found abandonedingerie in the pool or on top of the flagpole So yeah right from the start we ve got no illusions about Luis s character up to this point in his ife He hasn t been one of those alpha heroes who gets chased by ots of women but only has discreet affairs with a select few of them Nope Luis has been happily partaking of the wham baam thank you whatever your name is ifestyle For YEARS Luis actually says that women are as meaningless and interchangeable to him as the tires he used to get through during his racing days Damn That s a dyed in the wool manwhore right thereLuis is technically retired from racing but he recently participated in a charity race during which he wrecked his car resulting in a shattered pelvis The race took place in England which is why he s been stuck at his English manor house for weeks while he convalesces Ordinarily he prefers much exotic climates And since that is the case he and Carly have rarely crossed paths the whole time she s been working for him Now however they ve been in forced proximity for several weeks and it s about to get worseYou see Luis is so ungodly handsome apparently that he effortlessly and completely unconsciously casts a spell on every woman who enters his stratosphere so that they all inevitably fall in ove with him even when he s being incredibly arrogant demanding and down right rude The atest victim of this magical effect is Luis s physical therapist A no nonsense ultra practical stiff upper ip British woman who is appalled by her own ack of professionalism at allowing herself to fall for her client Luis has noticed her increasingly omnipresent blushes when she s around him and knows that yet another empty headed female has succumbed to his irresistible charms and he thinks ess of her for it He too despises her ack of professionalism and he fires herThen he decides that Carly his housekeeper remember will now take over as his physical therapist Giving him thrice daily massages helping over as his physical therapist Giving him thrice daily massages helping through his exercises and swimming with him in the pool He insists it must be her No one else will do He s fed up with hormone addled bimbos who can t stop throwing themselves at him and since he s known Carly for a ong time and she s proven resistant to his charms she s the best option He couldn t possibly you know hire a MALE physical therapist instead Nope it s Carly or bust Never mind that she s got no knowledge whatsoever about PT and DOES have a real full time job of keeping his house in order Nope none of that matters Both he and his recently fired female PT insist that it isn t difficult to do the PT s job and that the she can show Carly what to do in just a matter of minutes And that smell you re noticing is all the bullshit Fancy Strut lying around and getting trodden on by this ridiculous plot My sister is a PT and my sister inaw is a massage therapist and both of them had to go through extensive training to do their jobs because you can absolutely injure someone if you don t know what the heck you re doing And considering that Carly s dream is to be a doctor and she spends all her time studying for her prep courses you d think that she of all people would refuse to perform these tasks without the proper training And it s absolutely hysterical that Luis tells Carly to just go ahead and hire a temporary housekeeper to do Carly s real job while she s busy helping him with his PT Yep it makes total sense to hire someone to fill a position that s already filled so that the original employee can move over to do a task they re not ualified for instead of just hiring a PT in the first place And I d Northern California: A History and Guide - From Napa to Eureka like to add the housework is never ever mentioned again after this So we don t know if she hired someone off page or if she and Luis were just happilyetting the dust bunnies take the place overBut anyway now that plot contrivance has gotten us on the path we spend a few weeks first in England and then in the South of France with Carly giving Luis.
