Up until now, straitlaced Simon Kirkendale has done an admirable job of keeping his high society mother’s demands for grandbabies at bay, but lately she’s kicked things into high gear. So he isn’t too disappointed to delay her latest matchmaking attempt when a pretty stranger hops into the backseat of his car en route to one of his mother’s dinner parties and tells him to drive. A car-jacking? Nope. More like a bird on the run, but this particular bird happens to be a parrot who has slipped its cage, and Simon’s new acquaintance desperately needs to get it back before she loses sight of it altogether.
Ever the nice guy—and okay, maybe also a little intrigued by the colorful Miss Juleen Pruitt’s sudden appearance in his car—Simon hits the gas pedal and obliges only to find himself unwittingly dragged into a wild goose chase around town for a bird who seems to be determined to either get itself killed or the two people trying to catch it. Simon’s money is on the latter.
But it turns out that a little disruption and chaos in his life might just be what Simon needs most—especially if it comes in the form of Juleen.
If he can just manage to survive meeting her…
My Review: Simon + Juleen, they are now one of my favorite book pairs! I loved them and I just want more of those two together.
So Simon is a great guy with a great life. Though he could deal with his mother being off his back. She wants him to have babies! She even tries playing matchmaker. Yes, she is that parent, but at least she is nice. But Simon isn't having that right now.
Then Juleen enters the picture and he may just change his mind....Juleen sorta just jumps into his car and tells him to drive. No, its not a hijack or anything like that. So Simon could have just told her to jump back out of the car. Instead he did what she said and drove.
Gosh I just loved this book. Christine has some serious writing skills. You will be hooked from the start and won't want to put the book down until the very last word.
