This week's quote: Comes from The Expert’s Guide to Driving a Man Wild by Jessica Clare. Grant and Brenna are total opposites: He’s a neat freak from a rich family and she’s his disorganized assistant who lives to upset his orderly life. Naturally, as the book progressive there’s some seriously hot scenes between them that begin as spirited arguments. *grins*
“My car won’t start.” He sighed, and then threw the keys down on the nearest table. “Unfucking believable.”
Brenna winced. “Yeah, about that . . .”
Grant turned to her, his jaw clenching. “What?”
She shrugged. “I might have disabled the fuel pump switch so Pop could have something to work on this afternoon.”
He looked like he was ready to reach across the desk and choke her. Well, that was an improvement at least. This Grant she knew how to handle. “Brenna,” he said, his tone warning. “Give me the switch.”
“I might have thrown it away.”
“What? Like I knew you were going to the airport.”
“It was on the calendar, damn it!”
She spread her hands. “Sorry. You can take my car. I don’t know how much gas it has, though. I pretty much only go to the station when the little red light comes on.”
He stared at her.
“Oh, and if it chokes when it turns over, you have to pump the brakes a few times. It’s a little persnickety.”
He continued to stare. Dane ran a hand over his mouth, a sure sign he was trying to smother a laugh.
“And actually, while I think about it, the tags might be expired, but they never really pull you over for that sort of thing anyhow—”
She broke off when Grant pointed at her.
Brenna pointed at her chest. “Me?”
“Yes, you. You are driving me to the airport. Call the carpenter and reschedule for another day. Get an umbrella.” He looked her up and down, and then added, “And put on some damn pants.”
Being out of control…
The product of a rigid upbringing, Brenna has grown into a sexy free spirit who does things her way. No possessions, no debt, no man, and no rules to tie her down. And if she has to work, what better way than as assistant in a wilderness expedition team? So many opportunities to go wild.
…can be risky when you’re falling in love.
One person who doesn’t “get” Brenna is her boss, Grant. He prefers order and emotions kept in check, which means Brenna loves to push his boundaries. He’d be impossible to work for if he wasn’t so infuriatingly hot. But when his overbearing, matchmaking mother arrives in town, Brenna volunteers to be Grant’s pretend girlfriend. After all, it’s the perfect opportunity to drive Grant crazy at every turn.
Brenna’s just a little surprised when Grant agrees to her wild, impulsive schemes. And she’s more than a little surprised when their games take them to the bedroom…
