He'll make her forget all about the dress...
After years of ho-hum dating, Noelle Gregory is tired of fooling around. There’s only ever been one guy for her—Jake Conroy, her best friend’s older brother. Now that Jake’s back in town, she’s headed to his sister’s New Year’s Eve party to make her move. Purse full of condoms? Check. Sparkly dress guaranteed to show Jake the sexy woman she’s become? Check.
Carjacker that makes off with both two hours before the party? Check.
When Jake finds Noelle stranded on the side of the road—looking sexier than ever in her striped socks and silly holiday shirt, damn it—he’s glad for the snowstorm that cancels his sister’s party. His and Noelle’s friendship has tormented him for years, and now, Jake wonders if he should dare to sample what he’s always wanted…and if he’ll be able to walk away when it’s over.
No Dress Required is the latest novel from author Cari Quinn, and a preview from Entangled Publishing of their new line, Flirt. This novella is a spicy read, and a fun one. Noelle is a quirky character who, despite any personal self-doubt, has decided to finally make a play for the man of her dreams. Unfortunately for her, the fates seem to be against her as her intended evening does not go as planned. Jake is the perfect leading man for the story, embodying everything a romance hero should be,… hot, sexy, funny, and willing! Mixed in with the steaminess are two lovable characters, a good plot, and unexpected humor.
Definitely a fun read!
