For Ms. Ryan, first impressions are everything. Within the first five minutes, she tempts, frustrates and grabs a readers attention. Sexy Stranger is no exception. Ironic that an author, who prides herself on first impressions, would create characters that don't make very good ones. At least on each other. In my opinion the heat was on and the battles lines were drawn. Charlie was an uptight city girl, Luke a misunderstood country boy, but pride was a trait both had in spades. She was a woman on the run, trying to prove to herself and those around her that she was more than just an armpiece. He was a man with big dreams and an abundance of old hurts. How is it that two people who make each other crazy, end up making perfect sense? Sexy Stranger is a smartly written story with attitude, heart and a seductive happily ever after that kept me invested throughout every chapter.
