Class: How to Drive Him Crazy
Instructional program for women unexpectedly facing the totally dishy guy from their past. Everyone Welcome!
NHL coach Mark Diego’s plan to spend his off-season volunteering in his hometown goes awry when he learns that not only is he coaching teenage girls, but that the program is coordinated by energetic (and five feet two inches of trouble) coordinator Rainey Saunders, his childhood friend–and the woman he could never stand to see dating any other guy…
When their tempers flare, Mark and Rainey discover their fireworks don’t just burn angry–they burn very, very, hot! But that’ll just sweeten the victory. Because Mark always plays to win. And with Rainey, he’s planning on playing very dirty too…
This is 224 pages of great entertainment. I never worry when i read a Jill Shalvis book. I know that it will be interesting and entertaining. There will most likely be a hot man and a lot of great dialogue and depending on the book hot sex scenes and some laughs. Yeah that just about describes this book " Time Out". I love reading these smaller Harlequin books that are shorter in the pages department but big on story. I didn't feel like this book was only 224 pages. I read it on my kindle so later i had to go look up the page number. Sometimes you feel shorted on details in these books but not this time. I think it's all in the author who is writing the book. Jill has a knack for making you fall in love with her characters and Mark and Rainey have so much chemistry they sizzle. They have a past. They used to be friends until one night when a young Rainey made a mistake and ruined it. Years later though Mark hasn't forgot Rainey and now he is in Rainey's world again for a while to help coach some girls in baseball and get under her skin. There's a smidge of drama and lots of laughs and some emotional stuff you just have to have in the mix. I sat and read this in one sitting and right down to the last sentence it was pretty much a perfect read for making a person feel pretty darn good. 5 out of 5 Modokker book pick stars for Time Out by Jill Shalvis.
