Travis Yardley thought he had everything he needed, but one look at Andrea Patterson shows him he was wrong. Andie is a gorgeous, curvy blonde who moves to town to manage a nearby campground. Seizing the chance to get close to her, Travis volunteers himself as tour guide and "bodyguard.'
After a bad breakup, Andie is looking to start over and determined to put her heart on hiatus. She's working on her self-esteem, and she is not ready for the likes of Travis. He comes on strong, with all the energy of a guy almost ten years her junior, which is exactly what he is.
Even as Travis's troubled past catches up with him, he pulls out all the stops to convince Andie he deserves a chance. And with the spring thaw hitting the Mountain View Resort, Andie discovers her own temperature rising whenever Travis looks her way...
Just What He Wanted is the fourth story in the Holloway series and now I want to read the first three! I really enjoyed it and even though it’s the fourth, I didn’t feel like I needed to read the others to enjoy it. It just made me want to read them. Also, it isn’t very long, so if you’re looking for a quick read…
I loved that this story had an older, curvy woman in Andie and a young hottie totally falling over himself to get with her in Travis. Andie is funny and a little bit down on herself, so she may not be confident enough to handle Travis when he starts to pursue her. I really enjoyed seeing Travis work for it a little bit. I’d SO love to read more stories with a younger guy chasing after an older woman! I’m partial to this storyline of course, since I’m five years older than my fiance. So, it’s realistic to me! I like that this group’s setting revolves around a landscaping business and also a resort. It was fun seeing how handy Travis was at the resort. Also, I was really intrigued by the mysterious writer staying at the resort. His story was a bit of a shocker.
I really enjoyed HelenKay Dimon’s writing. It was fun and casual, and the characters were that as well. This story was like a fun, sexy romp. While it was short, it didn’t feel lacking in story or plot. I wanted it to be longer because I enjoyed it so much.
