Gripped: A Prescott Novel by Joanne Schwehm
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This is not my first novel by this author and will not be last. Ms. Schwehm has a finesse about her writing style that makes it easy to get involved with the characters and story.
Dane is the golfer trying to go pro who has no time in his life for anything more than one night. He doesn't remember names because he does need to, nor have the desire to want to. He wants to make it to the pros and nothing is going to stand in his way. To him relationships are messy and unnecessary. He is happy the way things are is planning on keeping things that way.
Beverly is a kind heart who grew up in a privileged home but never quite fit in. She spent most of her life feeling insecure and she is just getting to a place where she feels comfortable in her own skin. But having to attend a gala with those who put her down is not high on her to-do list. The best thing to come of this night is mischievous golfer who gets seated next to her.
Dane and Beverly are literally on two different planets. They have different paths, different goals and different desires. Dane is playboy and Beverly is a school teacher who volunteers her time to those in need. But despite all that, they have chemistry in spades and just work out well together as friends. Their budding relationship is fun and sweet to watch develop; but it isn't all smooth sailing. When past insecurities and current lifestyle rear their ugly heads who knows how things will turn out.
I have quick become a fan of this series, I look forward to the moments that are spent learning about the other siblings' life and of course gearing me up for what is to come next. This was another solid installment, it was sweet and fun, with a little bit of suspense, a lot of heart and of course some heat.
