Who knew a sweaty photo would be good for business?
Now unwanted booty calls are coming in as fast as work orders, and Liam Chase needs to get away. Cue a job upstate. His new client is hot as hell, but he left NYC to escape attention, not to hook up with the city’s “Runaway Bride”.
With three disastrous relationships under her belt, it’s clear Claire Stevens’s judgment sucks. And what’s she’s feeling for America’s newest sex god? Obviously another hormone-fueled mistake.
But when she accidentally fells a tree on his truck, leaving them stranded in a winter storm with a chocolate-snatching raccoon, there’s something to be said for body heat.
Too bad neither can trust their explosive chemistry…
From start to finish The 48 Hour Hookup by Sarah Ballance was a fun read.
This is the fourth book in the Chase brothers series. And I have to admit, this story has been my favourite so far.
Liam gets snapped in a sweaty and manly pose, and before he knows it, he becomes an overnight media star. It might be great for business, but Liam doesn’t need college girls ringing the office phone asking for “hot sweaty HVAC guy” ….. so when his brother offers him a way out, Liam grabs it with both hands.
Claire is hiding …… She is also a media star, her claim to fame ….. Being the “runaway bride from New York” Her retreat is a great place to hide, it’s remote, it’s quiet, but most of all ….. She’s on her own.
The meeting between the two was memorable, his truck gets damaged by a falling tree (she was the one cutting it down)! And after introductions are made, they make their way back to her home in the snow, to discuss her maintenance problems, and then the fun starts….. They get snowed in and terrorized by a raccoon.
After a close call, both Liam and Claire agree to a “no body contact” between them, Liam isn’t looking to being connected in the media to the runaway bride. And Claire agrees, her judgement isn’t much better, she fell for the wrong guy twice, so she is staying away from men. But Liam sure is cute.
Some of the scenes had me laughing out loud, the incident with Liam’s new truck and her chain saw ….. And the raccoon in the kitchen were hilarious. Will either of them commit after the snow has settled ?
This is a great addition to a good series. And I’m glad Liam gets his comeuppance, he certainly tormented his brothers when they found their women. So if your looking for a read with lots of laughs and a naughty raccoon, then this one comes highly rated.
