I broke the #1 rule of booknerds- DO NOT JUDGE A BOOK BY IT"S COVER! Honestly this book just sat on my bookshelf for over 3 months because this cover just screamed silly cheesy romance story to me. I just was not sure this book was for me. I finally decided to give this book a chance and I am really glad I did. I wish I would have picked this book up sooner. I have never read any books by Christie Ridgway, but if this book is any indication to her hilarious witty humor I will definately be on the lookout for more. I read this book in one sitting. It is not this life changing story, but rather a fun lighthearted read. I would recommend this book to anyone.
Storyline (as on back of book):
After all, this year brought Hannah Davis nothing but the memory of her wandering fiancé marrying someone else behind her back. Now, sitting alone at a bar in Coronado, California, on December 31, she decides to do something radical . . . and lets a brooding good-looker take her to bed. But when a hysterical woman bursts into their room much too early on New Year's Day, Hannah realizes this guy's more complicated than she thought . . .
Ex-Secret Service Agent Tanner Hart screwed up, big-time! Hoping to temporarily boot some of the ghosts from his life, he hooked up with this sexy stranger for a hot one-night stand-only to discover she's the woman he's agreed to protect . . . from men just like him!
But a new year is a time for fresh beginnings. Despite the danger, the hoopla, and the hangovers, if Hannah's brave enough to risk her heart again-and Tanner's wise enough to realize he deserves it-maybe this one will be different.
Overall Opinion: The lead female character in this story Hannah is so funny. Before every chapater there is always a "from the desk of Hannah" note on why she hates New Year's, which are really funny and unique. If you like fun romances read this book!
