How to unravel your straightlaced lover…
Gabe Nelson would be a great district attorney, but his public image is too boring to get voters' attention. Tattoo artist Devin Padilla can help him show off his fun, sexy side, but she needs something in return—his legal expertise to track down her missing brother. She's not Gabe's type, but they can't keep their hands off each other, whether it's good for his image or not.
At first, Devin thinks she got the easy end of the bargain. Gabe's the sexiest stuffed shirt in Manhattan, and his kisses practically set her on fire. But every deal has its fine print. As their relationship goes from business to pleasure, Devin realizes this one won't cost her soul…it'll just steal her heart.
Gabe might be a bit straight-laced, but he is also thoughtful, kind, caring, protective, hot man in a suit and glasses! If that is not swoon worthy, nothing is.
Devin is survivor, in all sense of the word. She can take care of herself, she can talk to and relate to people, she's sassy, and smart, with a big heart, and lots of piercings and tattoos.
The connection they have is fragile, and sizzling hot. But Gabe wants more than just a physical relationship, and the way he goes to romance Devin, is truly adorable.
Devin is supposed to loosen up Gabe for the election, but soon she realizes, that there's not much that needs changing.
The story has lots of great, smart, and entertaining dialog, that moves the story nicely along, and made me laugh out loud several times, and smile for the rest of the time. There's several sub-plots in the tale, that gives the story more layers, that brings Devin and Gabe closer together, and shows how much they have in common.
Witty, lively and enjoyable story with rather high heat level
