My Review:

This is the first in a new contemporary romance
In which the Lange brothers finally give love a chance.
This story is that of Ryker Lange, a police officer, who
Stops Kitt Boynton driving on the wrong side of the road - Phew!!
The chemistry between them is sizzling hot
But Kitt says any chance of romance there's definitely not.

She's over from Ireland with her cousins to stay
A broken heart meant she'd needed to get away.
She's determined no men will tempt her again
As she keeps choosing losers and can't stand the pain.
Instead she issues a challenge to Ryker to act as a friend
And on Valentine's Day, their bet will finally end.

When the townsfolk learn about their different plan
They set up the rules and add flirting to the ban.
The prizes are agreed, now they just have to see
Who will win and be able to claim victory!
Get ready for fun, as their attraction grows
Can they win or will love foil them, who knows?

What a delightful contemporary romance this proved to be
With plenty of angst, fun, laughter and family.
I really enjoyed it right from the start
A lovely story of being brave and opening your heart.
For my complementary copy of this book, I say thank you,
I throughly enjoyed reading it and this is my honest review.


He’s a notorious flirt, so she lays down a challenge she’s sure she’ll win.

When playboy police lieutenant Ryker Lange stops Kitt Boynton for driving on the wrong side of the road, his attraction to the feisty Irish lass is immediate. Yet, despite the sizzling chemistry between them, Kitt quickly turns him down.

Kitt has moved to River’s Edge for a fresh start and is ready to focus on her new marketing job at her cousins’ winery. She’s done with players, and vows she won’t let the local sexy cop distract her, but Kitt, a flirt herself, is definitely tempted. To keep her sanity as she prepares for several Valentine-themed winery events, she and Ryker make a bet: for the next three weeks, neither of them can flirt with the other.

The game starts out lighthearted, but when the town takes sides, Ryker and Kitt must choose between winning a wager or finding lasting love.
