The road to trouble is paved with sweet temptation…
Always the rebel in her ultra-conservative family, Quinn Sakata dreams of quitting her dad's real-estate business and restoring the old Mountain Ridge Bed and Breakfast in her hometown of Hope Springs. Except that Quinn's not the only person bidding on it. Worse still, her competitor is her high school crush, Heath Brantley, who is all kinds of ripped, tattooed hotness...
So much for her "nice, conservative boys" rule.
Heath has his own reasons for bidding on Mountain Ridge, and he won't give in without a fight - even to the red-lipped hottie with a sailor's mouth. But when their rivalry shifts into an unexpected zing of chemistry, Heath realizes he's in deep trouble. Because it's inevitable that emotions will get involved, and he needs to keep his eyes on the prize before they both get hurt.
I fell in love with Cindi Madsen's books when I read Getting Lucky Number Seven, and she's delivered another fantastic read with Crazy for the Competition. Quinn and Heath are in competition to win the bid to transform the Mountain Ridge Bed and Breakfast into their dream getaway spot. Quinn yearns for the freedom to create the bed and breakfast of her dreams and step away from the life her family planned for her. Heath dreams of having a hunting lodge with his reformed brother. He can use the lodge for a fresh start and as a means to mend the relationship between his brother and him.
Our hero and heroine grew up together and Quinn harbored an unrequited crush all through high school. When these two find themselves battling for the bed and breakfast, tensions flare. The banter between these characters is humorous and laced with an unrealized sexual tension. I loved watching them interact as their feelings transform from dislike to attraction. This story and characters were easy to be swept away in. Madsen has created a story with the perfect balance of laughter, drama, and passion that will keep a reader drawn in from start to finish.
Cindi Madsen has become a must read author for me. She always provides characters I fall in love with and plots I can't get enough of. If you haven't had the chance to pick up her books, make time to discover the literary brilliance of Madsen's work.
Cindi Madsen is a USA Today Bestselling author of contemporary romance and young adult novels. She sits at her computer every chance she gets, plotting revising, and falling in love with her characters. Sometimes it makes her a crazy person. Without it, she’d be even crazier. She has way too many shoes, but can always find a reason to buy a new pretty pair, especially if they’re sparkly, colorful, or super tall. She loves music, dancing, and wishes summer lasted all year long. She lives in Colorado (where summer is most definitely NOT all year long) with her husband and three children.
