After a few drinks too many, Brody Courage somehow manages to make it home in one piece. For a man who liked being in total control, it was a devastating blow to wake up and discover he was cuffed to his bed. All Brody could do now was hope that one of his brothers showed up.

Anger quickly takes a back seat to arousal when he realizes his tomboy neighbor, Lara Jacobs, is his rescuer. After Lara leaves, the fog begins to lift from Brody’s brain, leaving some very erotic memories. Obviously, he had sex with someone but until that moment, Brody hadn’t realized that someone was Lara. Apologizing to her will be a breeze compared to getting Lara to give him more than a one night stand.

Sometimes a person can’t see the forest because of the trees and that is the problem between Brody and Lara. Ever since they were teenagers, Lara had the biggest crush on Brody. The simple man never saw her as a woman, so how could she be his woman? Almost too late, Brody admits to himself what he really wants from life. Lassoing Lara has a sweet "girl next door" kind of vibe. The history between the couple makes the plot flow and keeps the romance from feeling too rushed. Usually I tend to identify with the female character, but Brody makes me feel so comfortable that I couldn’t be mad at him. N. J. Walters is definitely an author who has captured my attention and I look forward to more of her stories.
