A Two to Tango story
When a coveted retail space opens up in Rose Bay, Claire Jones and her sisters waste no time grabbing the perfect spot to relocate their expanding children’s bookshop. But when Claire arrives to sign on the dotted line, she discovers someone else got there first.
Worse, the new tenant is shaking hands with a man who is definitely not the elderly Jack Wilson with whom she made a verbal agreement three days ago. This Jack Wilson is a tall, hunky giant—and no amount of righteous indignation can mask her body’s bone-deep sexual response.
Jack never planned to take over the family company; he’s a teacher, not a businessman. But with his grandfather in the hospital, he’s taken up the reins—and steered straight into trouble. Now he’s faced with a serious mistake, and a beautiful, Amazon warrior of a woman who’s demanding satisfaction.
He’d love to give it to her, but his idea of satisfaction has nothing to do with business, and everything to do with getting the curvy goddess naked. The sooner the better…
If you’ve never made love to a man who quotes Shakespeare during sex…be warned. You’re gonna want to after reading this book.
I’m just going to tell it like it is; I love Jess Dee’s work. I love the way she writes, the way the words flow across the page, the way her characters always seem “human”, the way she makes you want to crawl inside a book and be a part of it. The most impressive thing about Jess, her novellas have substance and for that I’m grateful. A Touch of Confidence is one of the three novellas in Samhain publishing’s Two to Tango anthology. Anyone who can resist and anthology featuring Jess Dee, Lorelei James, and Jayne Rylon has better self control than me.
I love, love this story that features a “larger” woman described as an Amazon warrior and a Shakespeare quoting “gorgeous giant” of a man. Claire Jones is a woman on a mission; to secure the best spot for a second location for the business her and her sister’s own. When the perfect space is accidentally leased to someone else by Jack Wilson, the owner’s grandson, this story gets really interesting, really quick.
These two get off on the wrong foot at first but when Claire realizes that Jack is going through a rough time they end up groping on the floor of the shop she wants to lease. Their grope session is OMG hot!! While Claire is determined to put this behind them, Jack has other ideas and his ideas are pretty damn good. I love that Jack makes Claire realize she’s beautiful despite her poor self image. You can’t help but enjoy a hero that makes his woman feel like a woman.
Jess Dee has given us a fantastic novella filled with lovable characters, a poignant, amusing and sexy storyline, and witty dialog. I highly recommend A Touch of Confidence and know it is one story I’ll read again and again!
