A great, fun read!! Hudson is a billionaire that oozes charm but when he meets a woman who isn't interested in his charm, he sets out to convince her otherwise. Felicia is a woman focused on researching her honeypot ants, getting her research in a highly respected science magazine and getting the man she's been in love with since she was 15. She also has a personal deadline to achieve all this before her 30th birthday, which is right around the corner.
These two are total opposites and the dialog between them was exciting & fun with quite a few steamy scenes the will make you swoon! The swooning was my favorite part!!
I absolutely loved the second book in Avery Flynn’s Harbor City series. Hudson is the brother of Sawyer from the first book in the series, he is hiding who he is from his family, plus helps his mother trying to get Sawyer back with his best friend Tyler. Felicia is an Ant specialist and believes she is in love with Tyler who she has known for years. So Hudson agrees to teach her how to have Tyler notice her, Hudson has a ulterior motive and that is he wants to paint her and get her out of his system, but can he.
This was a great rom com and and another hit by Avery Flynn she did not disappoint.
4.5 Stars for this modern twist to My Fair Lady!
I was totally captivated by this sweet and sexy modern twist to My Fair Lady! This second book in the Harbor City series did not disappoint. It was funny, clever and very hot and steamy! We met mysterious, sexy, playboy, Hudson Carlyle in the first book and now he is back, allowing us to see he is all that, but also so much more. When he first meets nerdy ant researcher, Felicia Hartigan, he sees so much more in her than her glasses and frumpy clothes. When his mother sees her as well, she hatches a plan and enlists Hudson's help to carry it out. Hudson finds that she has a long time crush on his brother's friend, Tyler. So Hudson decides to help her catch his eye. But the more time they spend together, the more the lines become blurred. I loved how stubborn Felicity was and how she would never back down from a challenge. Hudson knew how to bring out her soft, sexy side, which helped to crack thru his walls as well. They were so perfect together and their chemistry was explosive. I loved the texts they sent each other, building a fun foundation for their relationship. Hudson's Mom was a great character as well, being able to manipulate her sons stealthily and with ease. This is the perfect blend of humor, charm, emotion and steam. It captured my heart and had me totally engaged from start to finish. I definitely recommend this must read romance!
