Fitness guru Lexy Clark wrote one of the year's hottest books, Workout Sex. But she finds fame has a downside and moves to a tiny California town that time forgot. She figures she'll run an old inn and hide from her high-profile past.

There she meets the hottest handyman for miles, Sam Worth, who has a past of his own he'd like to keep under wraps. But before long, their disguises—and their clothing—peel away.

Moore's novel has a decidedly fun and quirky premise. While the heroine's actions and motivations raise a few questions of credibility, the hero is a pure delight. The town is filled with secondary characters that possess varying degrees of likability and intelligence. Overall, this is a light, fun read with an occasional peek at more earnest drama.
