From the “awesomely, incredibly talented”* New York Times bestselling author of Still the One, comes a sexy new Animal Magnetism novel set in Sunshine, Idaho, where the sky is the limit when it comes to love.
Pilot-for-hire Zoe Stone is happy to call Sunshine, Idaho, her home base. But her quiet life is thrown for a loop when her brother’s friend Parker comes to stay with her for a week. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife special agent is a handsome flirt with a gift for getting under her skin. And the situation only escalates when Parker hires her to fly him around the area while he collects evidence on a suspected smuggler.
Now she has to live and work with the guy. But when they’re in the air, she sees another side of him. He’s driven, focused, and sharp. And while he enjoys giving commentary on her blind dates, she quickly realizes with a shock that it’s Parker who gets her engines going…
*New York Times bestselling author, Jaci Burton
Love can turn want into need.
I started All I Want at 5:30 this morning, with hubby sleeping peacefully beside me. It’s my quiet reading time before I start the day…well it’s normally quiet. The beginning was funny and I was struggling to keep my giggles quiet, which then turned into snorts, which then turned into hiccups. So my quiet reading time didn’t end up so quiet after all. At least I started my day with a big smile on my face.
Zoe’s a pilot struggling to refurbish the old family home, pay off her study debts and give herself a life. Up till now her brother and sister were her main focus, but with them moving out and finding their own HEA’s, Zoe realises she needs to make some changes. First change, she wants to go on dates. Then Zoe meets Parker when she practically throws herself at him.
Timing is everything and Parker realises it when a beautiful woman throws herself at him. Wyatt, Zoe’s brother and Parker’s mate has organised for him to stay with her while he’s on a break from work. Parker has been forced to take time off work when one of his cases goes bad and a fellow officer is killed. His work involves chasing down poachers and traffickers of wild and nearly extinct animals. He finds it too hard to completely shut off from work.
These two have great chemistry that they try to deny. Parker doesn’t want to hurt Zoe, but knows a relationship won’t work because of his job. Zoe is hesitant, because she’s had bad relationships that ended because of lies and she knows Parker has secrets. Eventually they succumb…and they are HOT together. It was obvious to me from the time Oreo, Bonnie and Clyde accepted Parker, they were meant to be together.
Both Zoe and Parker have some family issues. I do not like Zoe’s parents at all. Parker’s family issues show us a side to Parker that was very sweet. It made me like him even more.
This was another great Jill Shalvis story with lovable characters and a sweet storyline. These are not hard books to read. They flow so smoothly, with no angst filled plots to make you pull your hair out. A sweet comfort read that left me smiling.
Sassy rates this one 4 Stars.
