Making Him Sweat by Meg Maguire
Mercer Rowley is the driving force behind the gym, the man who is keeping it all going. He knows that they're just about to pop, he just needs the time to keep the gym open.
I don't know why, but I just couldn't invest myself in this story. Maybe it was that there was nothing I connected with in the characters. Jenna seemed a little flat; she wants to immediately close down the gym but is easily swayed to keep it open, she's been raised to believe that her father was a bad dude but accepts that he really might be okay with little proof and no animosity toward her mother.
I've never read Ms. Maguire before but I loved her attention to details. She painted realistic scenes that I could see in my head but without being too heavy-handed. That was what really kept me reading. The story was sweet without too many misunderstandings and a satisfying ending. The setup for the next book in the series was not overpowering.
I got this book from NetGalley because I had heard the Harlequin Blaze.
