NO STRINGS ATTACHED
ngell’s enchanting, warmhearted story gives readers a double dose of romance. Filled with wonderfully engaging characters, including an endearing hero, a shy yet courageous heroine and plenty of familiar faces, this is one very charming, feel-good tale.
Sophie Saunders had a crush on volleyball pro Dune Cates when she was 7 and he was 18, and time has not diminished her feelings — just deepened them. Since her brother’s marriage to Dune’s sister, a feud between the families has become less hostile. This opens the door for Sophie to work for the Cates family and see more of Dune. For Dune, the age difference, along with the chaos of his life and the demands of his career, places Sophie off limits. But he can’t seem to stay away from her, which goes against his no-strings-attached policy. Meanwhile, his volleyball partner, Mac James, finds Dune’s cousin Jenna to be irritating, aggravating and on his mind all the time. (KENSINGTON, May, 368 pp., $9.95)
