book blurbParker Minelli, a fitness trainer and cover model, is every woman’s dream. His Boston accent, chiseled abs and easy-going nature have women flocking to him. But when he meets author Abby, whose brains are bigger than his biceps, he sets out to prove that he’s more than just a pretty face.

Abby is thrilled—and a little breathless—when Parker agrees to work with her on her next book release. However, they soon discover that while opposites may attract, that doesn’t mean that they can overcome their differences. Especially when Parker’s supermodel ex-girlfriend reappears.

Will they be able to see the big picture and accept each other as they are, or will their differences close the book on their chance at love?

my review

3.5 Stars

Argggg!! I am looking at all these other reviews for Boston from people who loved this book but I just was not one of them.  I didn’t hate it nor do I want to slam it – Boston just wasn’t the book for me.

I couldn’t connect with the characters.  As they began their dance of flirting and being tempted by one another, I just was not feeling the sexual tension.  I’ll happily admit that Parker a.k.a. Boston and Abby had their moments when their verbal banter left me smiling but I was never screaming at my e-reader – GET IT ON ALREADY – like I have found myself doing in the past.

Maybe it was the back and forth from both characters – neither one of them one was fierce in their pursuit of the other.  They were both plagued with personal insecurities and suffered from a lack of communication.  Neither of them truly believed in the relationship, so I guess I did not either.

Overall, I thought Boston was well written and it does have sexy, fun storyline.  It simply was not the right book or characters for me but I do believe (and know) that other people will love this book.
