BLURB:

Tiffany Desjardins has a plan. Well, she had a plan, until her past and all its complications came back to haunt her. Her not-quite-ex-husband, Luke, is missing, and suddenly everyone needs to find him--including Tiffany, if she wants to marry the true man of her dreams. Then there's Thomas Hunter, Luke's brawny friend, who won't take "no road trip" for an answer--and who won't stop showing up in her daydreams…

Thomas couldn't care less about Luke's personal life, but he needs to find him if he's going to make his fledgling minerals and metals company a reality. And if that means following Tiffany, who's taken off in Luke's rare Lamborghini Miura, he's more than willing--especially if there might be a chance to negotiate some of Tiffany's lovely curves. As Tiffany and Thomas speed along without a map, the only destination that seems certain is being together…

Excerpt:

Is that the casting agent?” Piers demanded.

No.” Tiffany glared as Lola’s name lit up her screen. The woman’s timing couldn’t suck more. As much as she needed to speak to Lola—and she really, really needed to speak to her—she didn’t want to answer the call now. Five days she’d waited for Lola to call back. Lola pretty much ignored every call she didn’t feel like taking. Conversely, when Lola wanted to speak to you, she wanted it now and would blow up your phone until she got hold of you.

She hit Ignore and slipped the phone into her pocket. Why today of all days? It must be some kind of cosmic joke. Could you calculate coincidence? You must be able to. Nearly everything broke down to numbers in the end. Her gaze strayed toward the tote again. Her book seemed to shimmer and pulse for attention. Perhaps she could just quickly . . .

Hi, I’m looking for Tiffany?” A deep voice spoke from behind her.

Tiffany whirled on her four-inch heels and looked up. And up some more. Oh, thank you, sweet Jesus. Her white boy was here and he was gorgeous. His blond hair was cropped close to his scalp. It brought all your attention straight to that face. And what a face. You could break rocks on that jawline. The straight blade of his nose rescued him from pretty, but the mouth beneath it curved full and etched, made for nibbling on.

Review: I've never read Sarah Hegger before. This is the last book in her Willow Park Romance. Tiffany is a bit of a poor little rich girl, who is trying to change her life.  I wasn't sure if I was going to like her at first, but as she grew and found her real self she really was endearing. I really felt sorry for her too.

It was great to see her transform from the girl that just had to be beautiful into a real thinking breathing woman. Her soon to be ex's brother Dakota calls her Barbie, and when you get the descriptions of Tiffany, Barbie is a pretty good one for her.

Thomas was really great too, from the very start when she mistakes him for a male model. Oo la la. He's even better when you get to know him, because he's a nice guy and he really cares about Tiffany, and more about her than about her looks.

The two of them are great foils for themselves, but they have awesome chemistry.

Then there's Luke. I wanted a bit more of a mystery involving him, but that wasn't the case. Most of the drama involved Dakota. OK, a lot of the drama involves Dakota.

The best part of the book is Tiffany becoming her own woman, standing up to her father, who feels she's only as good as her pretty face, but as you learn her love of numbers and the way she works things out,without having much of an education, you know shes definitely much more than that. Thomas helps her to want more from her life. That's another reason to love him as a hero.

This was a great intro to this author for me.

Rating: 5 stars
