     "I had an urge to fix all her problems. Which was stupid. She was doing fine without me. But something about those big eyes…
     Mase Colt-Manning has always preferred his humble life as a Texas rancher to his birthright as the son of a legendary rock star. In fact, he rarely visits his father’s rarefied world in Rosemary Beach, especially if it means bunking at his vile half-sister Nan’s house—until one visit leads to a chance encounter with a young, gorgeous house maid who awakens him with her off-key but spirited imitation of a country music star…
     Reese Ellis finally has her freedom. After escaping a lifetime of abuse from her parents and classmates for an undiagnosed learning disorder, she seizes the opportunity to be a house maid to some of the richest families in Rosemary Beach. But her job is in jeopardy when she causes an accident at the home of her most important client, Nan Dillon. When a hot, half-naked stranger with a cowboy’s swagger comes to her rescue, she’s intrigued—then afraid once he shows his own interest. Reese has never met a trustworthy man in her life. Will Mase be any different?"

    Mase was always some-what of a mystery in the other books. Mostly because he's a pretty quiet guy and seems to enjoy the simple things in life. His dad maybe a famous rock star, but he'll take sweat on his brow and manual labor, over fancy houses and expensive cars. 

Reese is an interesting character. She wasn't really lost like many of the girls that star in these books, but she wasn't exactly completely sturdy on her own either. If I am being honest both main characters in all her books are a little lost before they meet each other. Sure they may seem happy, but they always become happier after they either admit feelings or when they meet. Reese was probably the most sensible out of all the characters. I liked that she as less willing to take help from pretty much a stranger. 

The one thing that kind of threw me off with the story, is how quickly she trusted Mase. It was just a couple hours. She says how men make her nervous and uncomfortable, but she trusts him almost instantly and lets him tell her what to do a little too much. 

I like their characters separately, not so much together. Maybe my opinion will change in the next book. I am a little obsessed with this series, so I will be reading all of the books.
