Authors: Jewel E. Ann
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Publication Date: January 29, 2018
Flint Hopkins finds the perfect tenant to rent the space above his Minneapolis-based law office.
All the t’s are crossed and i’s dotted on Ellen’s application. Her references are good. And she’s easy on the eyes.
Flint discovers Ellen Rodgers, Board-Certified Music Therapist, plays music. Bongos, guitars, singing—not Beethoven administered through noise-cancelling headphones.
The cut-throat attorney serves up an eviction notice to the bubbly, constantly humming redhead who’s too sexy for her own good. But luck is on Ellen’s side when Flint’s autistic son, Harrison, takes an instant liking to her. A single dad can’t compete with guitars—and rats. Yes, she has pet rats.
This woman …
She’s annoyingly happy with a constant need to touch him—adjust his tie, button his shirt, invade his space, and mess with his mind.
She must go.
February has been a less than stellar reading month for me and I’ve had a really hard time getting in to any books that I’ve started. I read a few chapters, and end up putting it down for something else. I’ve been looking for a book to pull me out of the slump, and when I heard everyone raving about Look the Part, I decided to give it a try. And I am so glad that I did, because this book will definitely be in my top ten of the year. I absolutely adored it.
Flint Hopkins is a powerful attorney, a single father, and extremely attractive. However, he has a troubled past that has left him feeling less than worthy of any type of romantic relationship. When Ellen Hopkins enters his life, the two butt heads over everything, especially the noise Ellen makes as a musical therapist. They’re like oil and water, and you’d never think these two could ever mix.
This was the first book I’ve read by Jewel E. Ann and the writing was absolutely beautiful. Her characters were some of the best I’ve read in a romance and I wasn’t prepared for the deep, emotional turmoil that these characters dealt with throughout the pages of Look the Part. This book is so much more than a romance, so much more than a comedy, and was everything I didn’t know I was looking for in a book.
Once you start Look the Part, be prepared to fall deeply in love with these characters. They will work their way under your skin, and bury themselves deep within your heart. This will not be the last book I read by Jewel E. Ann and I’m so excited to see what other gems she has to offer!
