Jack Taylor has been having the most incredible sex of his life. Unfortunately, it has all been in his dreams, with a woman he doesn't recognize. In reality, Jack has been celibate for several months, ever since the first unbelievably realistic dream. Jack? Celibate?? Months?! His best friend can hardly believe it. But Jack's dream woman has set a standard so high no other woman could possibly measure up.
When Katherine Clifford walks into the Delphi, Jack realizes two things. First, he recognizes her: she's Kitty Giroux, his high school prom date. Second, she's the woman who has been starring in his steamy dreams. Now that the woman of his dreams is here, in the flesh, Jack wants her in his bed. Sure, their prom date ended badly, but that was years ago and it wasn't that big a deal. If Kitty even remembers it, she's sure to forgive him, right?
Kitty is stubbornly convinced that Jack hasn't changed a bit since high school. She's certain he has no regard for a woman's heart or emotions, as long as he can get her in bed. Well, she isn't going to be Jack's latest conquest. She fell in love with him in high school, and he broke her heart. He isn't going to get another chance! She needs to find a way to work with Jack and keep things between them strictly professional. Not only is the Delphi her dream project; she needs it to keep her design business alive.
Kitty keeps telling Jack that she doesn't want anything to do with him on a personal level, but he isn't going to give up. Besides, it's obvious to him that her body and mind aren't in agreement. He can certainly tell when a woman is attracted to him. And Kitty isn't just any woman. He has to convince her to give him a chance! Will Kitty stay strong, or will she succumb to her desire for Jack?
FEATURED ATTRACTION drew me in from the first page and never let go. It's one of those stories that quickly made me stop thinking "characters" and start thinking "people" instead. The descriptions of the Delphi were so detailed and realistic that I almost wished I could see the beautiful theater in person. The place is a perfect fit for both Kitty's love of architecture and Jack's love of movies. I hoped they could put aside their differences and work together to bring it back to life, and just maybe renew the spark between them while they were at it. Would they ever move beyond the events of that long-ago prom night? Kitty knew it affected her deeply, but just how did it affect Jack? I hoped Kitty would open her mind to the possibility that people really can change and give Jack a chance. Then maybe she and Jack would both learn a few things about themselves along the way.
