He’s Looking For A Wife
Matt Jordan, the Colorado Crusher, is the most successful liability lawyer in the state. After the death of his brother-in-law, he realizes he’s ready to settle down with a family of his own. His only requirements are intelligent, great-looking, wants more than a hook-up and doesn’t lie. After witnessing the lies his father told his mother, he demands complete honesty. Yet Valerie Brown shows him sometimes in order to find yourself, you must become someone else. Even if that means lying.
I really enjoyed this book! I gave it 4 stars of awesomeness! I really enjoyed Valerie, the rogue bride. After being cheated on by her fiancé' she leaves him and decides to hop on a bus and find a new life. Little did she know that she was going to end up in small town and her hopes of staying just overnight turn into much more than that.
I like Valerie's character. She is jilted even though she left her fiancé', and there is this vulnerability there of being able to trust someone else and being able to find yourself (even when you change your name) Once she meets Matt, things start to change. I mean, he is hot, no doubt, but can she trust him and can he trust her? That simple question leads to a great book and great story! I laughed at the banter between the two characters as well as the others in the story. It flows so well together that you find yourself turning the page to see what happens next.
If you are looking for a fun read, definitely pick this up, its well worth it!
