A Date On Cloud Nine by Jenna McKnight (374 pages)
Lilly Marquette doesn't need angels to tell her it's not her time. After all, she's not even thirty. But while checking out the incredibly hot guy behind the counter of an adults-only toy shop, the furnace blows, and poof, Lilly is headed for the pearly gates! But instead of St. Peter, she's greeted by ... John and Elizabeth? These guardian angels are giving Lilly one last chance to get it right ... and to finally choose the right man.
Jake Murdoch is hot, sexy, and may even be the right man, but he wants nothing to do with Lilly. He believes she stole three million dollars from him in an insurance scam, and now she's talking to angels and giving away his money! His mind should be on revenge, but when she bats those long, sexy lashes at him, it suddenly doesn't seem so important anymore ... not when he gets one last chance to prove he is the right man.
This book was a cute read. Lilly was a hoot to follow around and witness her attempts to seduce Jake, the sexy, guy behind the counter. A few characters made it into the main plot then quickly exited which was fine because the story was all about Jake and Lilly and the sexual tension between them. Of course with Lilly's second chance at making things right, she became deliciously irresistible to Jake. Poor Jake just wanted "his" money and do right by his dead best friend to keep his widow safe...from him. But true love was found and I couldn't help but grin ear to ear about their love-joy. (Sigh) I just loved it!
Overall, the book was cute and fluffy around the edges. The main characters were pretty typical and the book had a happy ending. Who doesn't love that.
Worth Your Time!
