The darling of the Aussie small screen, Edwina Calloway, has always had a thing for her ex co-star the hunky Justin Wilde – even before he took off to Tinsel town and became a Hollywood heartthrob. And Justin always had a thing for her. Except she was married so neither of them ever crossed that line. But now Justin's back in Oz to take part in a celebrity car rally with Edwina riding shotgun and she isn't married anymore...
It seems the entire country is holding its breath for their much vaunted reunion. Can they survive a five day road trip, just the two of them alone in the car under intense media scrutiny without finally getting naked and doing the Wilde thing? And if they can’t, what happens when Justin heads back to Hollywood?
Quick, hot, fun and easy read, perfect for a weekend entertainment.
The couple, Edwina and Justin are charismatic, attractive, and likable. The chemistry between them is something fierce. And the author sets the fireworks off in a talented way. Four years of denying attraction sets off, and there's no going back from that. The story gets more depth from the sexy part, when the tabloids get a picture of Ed and Justin together, and jealous ex throw Edwina's intellectually impaired sister to the media in a wrong light. Completely romantic ending to the story, as expected, made me sigh and smile.. There would have been material for a full length novel here, but this part of the story made a lovely, yet steamy, novella, part of the new Aussie series from Tule Publishing.
