Class: How to Drive Him Crazy
Instructional program for women unexpectedly facing the totally dishy guy from their past. Everyone Welcome!
NHL coach Mark Diego’s plan to spend his off-season volunteering in his hometown goes awry when he learns that not only is he coaching teenage girls, but that the program is coordinated by energetic (and five feet two inches of trouble) coordinator Rainey Saunders, his childhood friend–and the woman he could never stand to see dating any other guy…
When their tempers flare, Mark and Rainey discover their fireworks don’t just burn angry–they burn very, very, hot! But that’ll just sweeten the victory. Because Mark always plays to win. And with Rainey, he’s planning on playing very dirty too.
I have yet to read a Jill Shalvis book that I haven't liked. SERIOUSLY.
I know that when I pick up her books, that I will get at least three things:
1. A solid, strong hero who is charming, sexy, and a heroine who loves to drive him crazy.
2. Smexy, steamy times that is loaded with great sexual chemistry. NEVER falls flat.
3. A great plot with funny laugh-out-loud moments.
All of these key ingredients are in Time Out.
I love to see a man squirm a bit--and Mark does this A LOT in Time Out. To see this Alpha Male have to deal with teen girls and listen to them discussing boys and sex is very humorous. He is so out of his element-used to coaching men on a professional Hockey Team--and has to put a dollar in the swear jar for every curse...
Nice ass, he thought, and walked in the opposite direction, onto the field, handing Pepper another dollar.
"What's this for?" she asked.
I thought a bad word."
This was an enjoyable read and warmed me through and through.
