What seductive, contemporary romance will you find today? ARIES.

Ethan Andrews makes his living reading people and tailoring his sales pitch to what they want. He lives his life on the road, traveling from city to city, hotel to hotel, and it all works for him until he meets Norah Silver—the woman he wants to come home to.

Norah Silver has a plan, one that requires focus and dedication. She’s working sixty to eighty hours a week between her two jobs—one for money and the other for her passion. She thrives on giving solid relationship advice that may be based in the stars, but also grounded in reality. The last thing she expected was to find a sizzling love connection of her own.

Sparks fly when these two stubborn Aries launch into an impulsive relationship. Telling themselves lust is actually enough turns out to be a lie, but can these rams bend enough to recognize it or will their off the charts chemistry explode before they really get started?

SummerBlog My Review

Norah Silver has a radio show based on Astrology signs and love.  Her best friend is leaving on a long weekend vacation and they meet for a drink before her flight. This is one of my favorite passages at the very beginning of the story.  It is only  part of the conversation where Norah compares herself to an orange crayon.

“The one always left in the box…you know when you’re a kid and you do a lot of coloring?  You use the blues for the sky and the water, the green for the grass, and the white for clouds and yellow for the sun.   Red shows up for flowers or shoes or cars..”

     “Or fire engines,” Tina added helpfully.

     “Yes, fire engines.  Right.  Brown even gets a cut of the action for people and for tree bark.  But orange?  Orange sits in the box untouched and unblemished.  It’s always the sharpest crayon, but the least used.  The paper isn’t crinkled…and if it rolled off the table and onto the floor and beneath a chair to lie forgotten–no one would notice.”

     Tina blinked once.  “Damn, girl, you need to get the hell out of your head.  The orange crayon?  That’s some fucked-up shit right there.”

As Norah is finishing her drink before leaving the airport she is approached by a very handsome stranger.  Against all odds, they end up having dinner together and I have to admit that the way he convinced her to go is quite genius.

With a few twists and lots of really hot sex (I would expect nothing less from an Aries) this is a quick and fun read.
