Grace Hamilton was the girl with a plan. She knew exactly where her life was going and prided herself on always achieving her goals. It was who she was, and how she lived her life. She never stepped outside the lines, and never considered what she might desire and whom she was actually trying so hard to please. Until him…
Carson Stinger was a man who didn’t play by any rules except his own. Working in the adult entertainment industry, he didn’t care what others thought, and took each day as it came, no direction, no plan. He knew what women wanted from him and believed it was all he had to offer. Until her…
When circumstances forced them to spend several hours together, they walked away changed. But for two people who never should have meshed, overcoming the reality of their vastly different lives wasn’t possible.
Mia Sheridan did it again! Leo and Leo’s Chance are two of my favorite reads and I just knew Stinger would be one too!
Grace Hamilton has her life set on a schedule: graduate from college, attend law school, find the perfect job in D.C., get married and have her 2.5 kids. Carson Stinger lives his life with no rules, no set schedule or plans. These two couldn’t be anymore opposite, but as the saying goes…opposites attract and these two were perfect for each other (definitely a new favorite book couple of mine!).
I loved their first run into each other in a hotel lobby in Vegas–she finds him hot and thinks he’s a fellow law student attending the law conference. That’s until she sees his name badge: Carson Stinger, Straight Male Performer. Yep, he’s an actor in the adult film industry! Carson is arrogant and fairly confident in himself, but also has a sweet, romantic side to him. He will make any woman swoon, but he has a hard time swooning Grace!
Of course, Carson is not on her lifelong path of happiness and safeness! Grace is appalled by him and his attitude, but attracted to him all at the same time. Even though Carson thinks Grace is absolutely beautiful (and for some reason can’t stay away from her!), he sees her as snooty and lives in her “perfect world” for everyone else, but herself. But these two end up spending the weekend together in Vegas (absolutely loved their time together!) and after that, their lives are forever changed.
“Why do you call me Buttercup?”
But it’s not that simple for them to get to their Happily Ever After. This book takes Grace and Carson through surprisingly twists and turns throughout their lives. It takes time for them to figure out who they really are and what fate has in store for them. Stinger is a perfect weekend read that has a good feeling ending and makes you believe that no matter how opposite you are with someone, they can balance you out perfectly and forever change your life!
And by the way, I love that Grace is from Dayton, Ohio and moved to D.C.–just like me :)!
