A Good-Lookin’ Man by Marcia Lynn McClure (novella)
However, in an instant—in less than a breath or the bat of an eyelid—the elusive pepper spray hiding somewhere in her purse was all but forgotten. For standing before her—right there before her, not three feet away—was the best-looking, most gorgeous, handsomest man she had ever seen in all her life!
“No, seriously,” she thought out loud with lingering bewilderment at how perfectly stunning the man standing before her was, wearing a worn pair of Levi’s, dusty cowboy boots, and a short-sleeved, plaid-print, snap-up shirt that hung open, revealing a bronzed, perfectly sculpted torso that was simply a mass of muscles. She was so unsettled by the man’s appearance that she wasn’t sure whether she was whispering aloud to herself or her car.
Either way, the man asked, “Beg your pardon, ma’am?”
“Oh…oh, nothing,” Fairlee said as she began rummaging in her purse again. But the man’s presence and appearance had entirely rattled her. As her awe-inspired brain obviously quit sending out instructions to the rest of her body, Fairlee felt her purse slip from her hands—watched in humiliated dismay as its contents tumbled out and scattered over the shoulder of the road.
My Review: Fairlee Jones is a normal college student, she has a job working at an orthodontist office that she hates, so she decides to take a bit of a break and live with her Uncle Ben and Aunt Pearl for the summer. She's almost there when the worst thing happens, her car dies. She's on the side of the road getting ready to walk the rest of the way to her aunt and uncle's when the most amazingly good looking man pulls up in his truck, and practically insists that she allow him to take her the rest of the way to her aunt and uncle's. Fairlee isn't sure about the stranger, Lash Lantry, he could be dangerous for all she knows, but he eventually convinces her that he won't hurt her. Fairlee has a small, embarrassing problem, everything she thinks ends up coming out of her mouth right when she thinks it, so Lash Lantry knows that she thinks he's amazingly good looking. Fairlee knows that he's good looking, but she never dreams that such an amazing man could ever even look twice at a normal girl like her, but she can dream can't she? Will her dreams ever come true?
I loved this book, it's my very favorite one since A Better Reason to Fall in Love, I had to laugh about this because when I was reading the end notes of this one, I discovered that she had written the two books in much the same way. This book is light-hearted, fun and super romantic. I loved Lash Lantry, he's the perfect cowboy/ hero type. I really liked Fairlee too, it was so funny how she would embarrass herself with the things that would pop out of her mouth, but she could also laugh at herself for the things that did come out of her mouth. There were a few mild swear words, but nothing you wouldn't hear on a farm somewhere. You'll love this book if you are a fan of clean romance with plenty of humor and kissing too!
