Bad-girl massage therapist Tammy Cooper has survived three awful marriages. Now happily single and focused on her career, she's unprepared for Niall Fortson, the nice-guy veterinarian who moves in next door. There's no denying his appeal, or their chemistry, but Tammy refuses to think beyond a brief affair—for her own good and for Niall's. But he's got every intention of ignoring her ground rules. Jennifer LaBrecque's newest, BARELY BEHAVING (4.5), is a vividly emotional and erotic tale about two wonderfully complex characters, spiced liberally with humor.
