Friday’s child is loving and giving…
Ewan Collins has had the hots for Natalie for years but she continually rebuffs him, supposedly because of their age difference. When Natalie comes to stay with the Collins family for a week, Ewan decides it’s time to make his move in a serious way.
Natalie’s been in a funk since celebrating another birthday alone. When Ewan proposes to help her “get a life”—seven lessons in seven days—she figures, what the hell does she have to lose? Ewan’s plans include tequila shots, fishing, karaoke…and other, more erotic hands-on demonstrations.
But Nat’s loneliness isn’t Ewan’s only obstacle. Tragedy in her past continually takes Natalie to a dark place her mind can’t easily overcome. With support, tenderness and love, Ewan plans to win over Natalie one lesson at a time.
Starting with lessons of the heart.
Natalie knows she doesn't deserve love.
She has dark moments and can't give someone what they need. But why is she so darn attracted to Ewan? She is too old for him, for one, and she could never fully open up about the darkness within her.
Ewan knows he is pretty much in love with Nat, but he doesn't know how to convince her that they are perfect for each other. So he comes up with a plan, and it will only take seven days.
This is the most perfect love story. I have read every one of these stories in Mari Carr's Irish Series and she has not let us down yet. You will be cheering for Ewan in his pursuit to win Nat's heart, and you will admire the courage that Natalie faces with her own inner demons.
Mari Carr’s stories have the right balance of hot sex and tenderness. If you haven't read anything by her, this is great first read and if you are a fan you will not let you down.
