A Review by Wendy
4.5 Being Seen Stars
* * * * 1/2  

Spoiler Free

I have said it before but do not get tired of saying, I LOVE THIS SERIES. These books are written exactly how I like. There is always an overall story-line, the romance between the main characters but the best is the more...the underlying issues these characters may have with family, business partners, or others. There will be insights as to not-so-perfect relationships and life lessons to learn through reading these books. It truly makes a satisfying experience.

Kerrigan Hale always wanted to do more, not just work for the family car dealership.
She went to college, took business courses, and when she was able, she started acquiring properties in her hometown, Calamity. She met Gabriel Sullivan and he took her under his wing. He believed in her abilities, encouraged her to believe in herself, and backed a large loan for Kerrigan to purchase the buildings and home she renovated.

All was going okay, she had worked an extension on her loan with Gabriel during her last conversation with him. And then life was cut short for Gabriel and his wife with a terrible airplane crash.

Now we are there when Gabriel's grandson is handing a 30-day notice to pay up her huge loan. This is not making sense to Kerrigan and she is furious. Who is this guy, he is nothing like the grandson Gabriel use to talk about. This Mr. Pierce Sullivan is an arrogant, cold, unfortunately, good-looking man. Kerrigan tears up the letter and throws it in his face, on the street, in front of her gym/spa with all the town to see.

Great.

Pierce stood there being the asshat he was, stunned and hypnotized by this woman's mouth. It was perfect, with plush lips and the sweet color of peaches, all-natural. Oh, how he wanted to kiss them but instead he shook that off and remained the cold man she thought he was. Pierce didn't know the relationship this woman had with his grandfather, he could only imagine, knowing the type of man he was...he had learned first hand. So he had no charity for this Kerrigan, with that mouth, nope she would need to pay up, and then he would be done with her.

These two did have something in common, though...Booze...They both decided to nurse their demons with it and that activated actions both could not forget. The clock on that 30 days finally hits the mark and Pierce is back to close this outstanding loan. He needs to stop thinking of Kerrigan and move on.

Kerrigan tracks down Pierce at his grandfather's cabin with a plan to present to him regarding the loan. Mother Nature decides to help by bringing a snowstorm that causes these two to be locked in with no way out. Close quarters cause new discoveries and Pierce and Kerrigan end up not being the same people who started with this storm.

Oh, this book, so much happening and all of it good. There were surprises never hinted, confrontations between those who needed to hear what was said, and the type of love that is healthy, encouraging, and respectful. Everything I appreciate and adore. And Yup, hot times, too. :DDD

This series is like the energizer bunny, it just keeps going and going (yay) and I can say the next entry will be a doozy.
