Slow Hands by Leslie Kelly
Mandy Turner is not only a strong business woman but unlucky in the love department. Her older sister, Tabitha, doesn't want her fathers new wife to cheat on him, so she ends up with this master plan for Mandy to buy the guy her stepmother was supposed to buy at this charity bachelor auction. Little does Mandy know that her desires and heart will be thrown for a loop.
Jake Wallace is just a simple paramedic that is helping his chiefs wife with auctioning off himself to the highest bidder for the children fund. While backstage he sees Mandy and is utterly bewildered by her. Now can Jake bring down the walls that Mandy has put up or is he giving up the woman he has longed for..
It's an overly short book but interesting it was. It was a breath of fresh air to read about something totally different then what I am used to reading about. I loved that Mandy was strong, independent, caring and loving at times. Although she puts up this hard persona she is lovable and exciting. Jake, well, what can I say? He's a dream guy. He's not on;y patient, but funny, considerate, and at many times the romantic. It's just too bad Jake doesn't have any brothers but hey a girl can dream, right?
