Christie Ridgway has become a go-to for excellent contemporary romances. When I saw this in the UBS the last time I was there I decided to pick it up. I'm glad I did.At first I wasn't sure about Eve's character. It's obvious she's shallow and is used to using her looks to get her what she wants. But I was never turned off by her, I guess because I recognized her actions for what they were - defense mechanisms. Nash I liked right from the beginning. He was the perfect counterbalance for Eve. He didn't let her get away with anything. He constantly called her on her behavior and teased her about her sexual escapades.
