Rachel Bennett loved her job until the day she finds herself doubting her choices. Now she's hunting for a new career, but starting over isn't easy. Her plan is simple --no distractions until she finds her dream job. She didn't plan on fate throwing her a curveball in the form of a fender bender with a sexy guy in an expensive suit.

Craig Larsen is a wealthy, successful business owner with a plan of his own: survive his current PR nightmare and stay away from his overly determined ex-girlfriend. His need for control and personal success is turned upside down when he meets Rach, a sassy redhead who can't drive.

Soon they find themselves battling with Rach's grumpy old neighbor, toilet-papering the trees of a high-school nemesis, and fighting over the last slice of pizza. Can two very different people plus one fender bender equal a chance at forever?

This was a good runny romantic comedy. It really was just what I was looking for and what I was expecting to get when I chose this book to read and review.  

It starts you laughing from the very beginning when Rachel and Craig collide in a parking lot.  Neither one of them wants to admit that it was their fault.  Rachel and Craig both find each other attractive, but it was during a stressful moment and it was easier for them to show aggravation against each other.  After all is said and done, Rachel calls her best friend to gripe about how Mr. Hot and Sexy with an attitude crashed into her car.  Leah, who is her best friend, listens to Rachel then tells her that she has to go to a house showing with her and meet the new guy that she has met.  Rachel finally agrees even though she really doesn't want to.

When Rachel shows up at the house where Leah and Rick, her new love, are at she gets an unexpected surprise when low and behold in walks no other than Craig.  Both of them are shocked at seeing the other one and immediately see how it has happened due to Leah and Rick.  When asked why each one are there Craig states that Rick is his brother and Rachel states that Leah is her best friend.  As did before they both start a picking fest at each other trying to see who can annoy who the most.  As the book continues, the two of them continue with the argueing as always, but what they don't expect to happen is to develop strong feeling for each other.  As Leah and Rick work to help the two unwanting or willing love birds get together by inviting them to places without the other knowing they don't have a choice but to spend time together.

I really enjoyed reading this book, because it was a fun and light hearted read.  I found myself laughing throughout many parts of the story.  It was a good romance that would keep you wondering what wild itdeas that Rachel would come up with, and in away you also go to take a journey with her to find "herself" as well.  The best part is that Craig is with her during this whole journey and finds himself consumed in thought with her constantly.  If you want something to lift your spirits up and keep you on your toes then this is a book for you.

  Niecey Roy knew she wanted to be a writer from a very young age, but her moment of enlightenment came after watching the movie You’ve Got Mail. It was then she realized her place in life and happily parked her butt on writing romance. Her dream was to create sexy vixens, hunky, half naked heroes, and above all, romance; lots and lots of butterflies in the belly, breathless first kisses and happily-ever-afters. 

When she’s not at her day job where she works as a legal assistant, she can be found at home at a cluttered desk, pounding her tired little fingers away on a keyboard with nothing but black pepper flavored sunflower seeds and Visine as her weapons for mass-romance-novel-creation. When her fingers need a break, you’ll find her at a table with friends, drinking a few martinis and showing off a new pair of (sometimes ridiculous) high heels. She’s usually the loudest at the table and most often the one snorting with laughter.
