Alright, confession time again - I read this book quite a while ago, but just had to do the other reviews first. Also, (Super Big Confession Alert) I wasn't sure I was even going to READ this book. That was, until I saw a review Marg had done on her blog Reading Adventures . I am a HUGE fan of The Plum Series , but have had a very hard time getting into the re-released romances of hers. I was pleasantly surprised by this one, and I think you will be, too.
Smitten by Janet Evanovich
Back Cover Copy
Ummmm. There is none. Just a pic of Evanovich. I suppose her name is enough to sell this one.
Basically, Smitten, the story of Lizabeth Kane, a divorced single mother of two young boys, who is in desperate need of a job. After being told she was under-qualified or over-qualified (I just looked at this, and when I did spell check I didn't pay much attention obviously, for it changed those two words to underclassmen and over zealous,lol), for many jobs, her hopes hand on getting job working construction.
Matt Hallahan owns the construction company that Lizabeth wants to work for, and he's not quite sure this little whip of a woman is cut out for the job. But, she's determined and he hasn't the heart to tell her no. Plus, she's awful cute.
Lizabeth and Matt experience instant chemistry. This is a short and sweet book, it has what I feel, were many characters that were probably used as place holders for some of the Plum book characters. It also has a naked stalker and lots of funny little bits.
If you want something light and fluffy, this is the book for you. I had it read in two hours, so it was a great way to kill some time. Enjoy
