|Flint Hopkins finds the perfect tenant to rent the space above his Minneapolis-based law office.
All the t’s are crossed and i’s dotted on Ellen’s application. Her references are good. And she’s easy on the eyes.
Flint discovers Ellen Rodgers, Board-Certified Music Therapist, plays music. Bongos, guitars, singing—not Beethoven administered through noise-cancelling headphones.
The cut-throat attorney serves up an eviction notice to the bubbly, constantly humming redhead who’s too sexy for her own good. But luck is on Ellen’s side when Flint’s autistic son, Harrison, takes an instant liking to her. A single dad can’t compete with guitars—and rats. Yes, she has pet rats.
This woman …
She’s annoyingly happy with a constant need to touch him—adjust his tie, button his shirt, invade his space, and mess with his mind.
She must go.
Their lust-hate relationship escalates into something beautiful and tragic. This sexy, romantic-comedy explores the things we want, the things we need, and the impossible decisions parents and children make to survive.
After telling my co-blogger that I had a DNF with this book she told me and (I quote)
“The author has that kind of effect on people.
She’s like marmite you either love her or you hate her books”
Guess that means I will not be trying marmite anytime soon
I am not the one to usually spoiler and I wont start now … but I have to say that the male lead does something almost unforgivable in my eyes that is explained in the first pages of the book and he does nothing in my eyes to redeem himself. I can not see any changes or redeeming qualities he is responsible for his situation and he punishes his surrounding with his presence and his (insert swearword) ways.
Maybe at a certain point within the text after I gave up there is some explanation but I am pretty certain if things really happend the way they seem to have … he most probaly actually should be in jail and not working in the profession that he is – which leaves me with a questionmark.
Anyway I am garciously stepping aside for others that seem to like/love the book but this was not for me.
