There’s no way
Ten years ago, Nick had swept Delaney off her feet and onto his Harley, and that’s when she really let her down her Hair Back then, he was a love-‘em-and-leave-‘em man, and Delaney learned the hard way that she was just a fling. But Nick is as irresistible as ever. And when the ladies at Tuesday night Bingo see Nick and Delaney making after-hours whoopee through the window of a local beauty parlor, Delaney knows it’s time to decide if Nick I truly, madly the man of her heart.
10 years later, Delaney comes back to Truly for her fathers funeral. Her plan is to spend only a couple of days in Truly to help out her mother and get the hell out of there as soon as possible. Hopefully before she sees Nick again. Unfortunately, luck isn’t on Delaney’s side. When it is time for her fathers will to be read, she discovers that she is set to inherit $3 million dollars and Nick will inherit a lot of valuable property for him to build condos on. The only stipulations are that Delaney must stay in Truly for a year. Oh yeah, and she can’t sleep with Nick! If either of them break the rules, then they forfeit the inheritance. Delaney decides she can handle a year in Truly in exchange for $3 million dollars. Besides, she doesn’t even like Nick…
Nick quickly returns to his old ways and keeps finding new ways to torment her, piss her off and turn her on. These two have one of the HOTTEST chemistry out there and their relationship is slow, complicated, infuriating and absolutely exhilarating! They have the kind of chemistry that makes your palms tingle and keeps your stomach in knots. It’s awesome to see just how far Nick and Delaney are willing to go for money and for love. The pacing in this story is absolutely perfect and allows you to really learn about Nick and Delaney and their feelings. Most of this book is told from Delaney’s POV, but there are a few parts that are told from Nick’s POV which really lets you see that behind his cold and indifferent exterior, he is just a big ol’ softie who is just begging to be loved.
Truly Madly Yours is contemporary romance at its absolute best! Has the perfect amount of humor and romance. Delaney is shy and a little bit of a pushover but something about Nick brings out her smart ass and wild side. And Nick! He is still one of my favorite male characters ever! You all know I love my fictional guys the best when they have that perfect mix of jerk, asshole but sweet and romantic guy and Nick is the perfect example of this. If you have never read a Rachel Gibson book then this would be a perfect one to start off with. I have read ALL her books and a few of my other favorites are Tangled Up In You, It Must Be Love and Any Man of Mine. If you are ever in the mood for a feel good contemporary romance, Truly Madly Yours is the perfect answer. A sexy and emotional story that you will want to read over and over again.
She knew she wasn’t beautiful, not like her mother. But the way he looked at her and touched her, and the tone of his voice when he said it made her almost believe him. He made her believe anything was possible. “Because you make me not want to say no.”
“What?” She stuck her key on the lock, then paused with her hand on the doorknob.
“I lied to you yesterday.” She looked over her shoulder, but she couldn’t see him.
“When I said you could have been anyone. I would know you with my eyes closed.” His deep voice carried across the darkness more intimate than a whisper when he added, “I would know you, Delaney.” Then the squeak of hinges followed by the click of a dead bolt and Delaney knew he was gone.”
“I don’t know, Nick, I might talk afterward. Do you think you can handle it?”
“I can handle anything you can think up, and a few things you’ve probably
never even thought of.”
“Do I have a choice?”
“Sure, wild thing. I have four bedrooms. You can choose which one we use first.”
