SHE'S ON TOP
Although this works as a stand-alone, it's the third book in Lyon's Awesome Foursome series. Many readers will be able to see parts of themselves in quirky but incredibly intelligent and realistic Rina. Also, women will wish for a man like sexy, intense and fun-loving Giancarlo. Full of internal conflict, good friends and delicious sensuality, this book is hard to put down.
A hopeless romantic, clarinetist Rina Goldberg wants to get married. But she can't get her first lover, Giancarlo Mancini, out of her head. When she learns he's in town, she contacts him. The former classical pianist is now a sexy, world-traveling music video director. He may work around thin models all day, but after seeing curvy Rina again, he knows she's the woman for him.
