****Brenda jackson has a smoothe writing style. Her intimate scenes are tasteful & intriguiing. She covers all the basis.****
Sage Dunbar is dealt a double whammy. She is engaged to marry Erol Carlson, her first love and the man with whom she had a five-year relationship. When he depletes her bank accounts without her knowledge on an investment scheme gone badly, Sage calls off their engagement and severs all ties with him. Later, that same day, she sees her father whom she held in the highest regard, at a restaurant with a woman who is not her mother. These two incidents causes Sage to question everything she believes in about love and marriage. To get away from it all and clear her head, she accepts a job transfer many miles away. Gabe Blackwell swore off of relationships and love after his almost fiance dumps him to go back to her former lover. He submerges himself in work and only seeks out female companionship for sexual release. When Sage and Gabe meet in Anchorage, Alaska to work on the Landmark project, Eden, there is electricity between the two of them that can not be denied. But with both of them carrying so much emotional baggage they are unable to see what is so obvious to everyone else.
This is the first time in reading one of Ms. Jacksonï¿½s books that there is a female protagonist that I had a hard time liking. I found Sage to be self righteous, unforgiving and unyielding. Gabe deserves a medal for hanging in there with her. Having a story set in Alaska in itself is unique. I wish more scenery and description of the area and its attractions made their way into the storyline.Read more ›
Gabreil Blackwell is handsome, single and successful. As co-owner of a top architectural firm he is a hot commodity in and out of the boardroom. Gabe wants to find a good woman and settle down, but that woman must meet one specific requirement, she must not bring any relationship baggage. Gabe's past dating experiences have left him cautious about sharing his heart.
A special construction project brings Sage and Gabe together and sparks are flying almost at their first glance. But neither is ready to trust again so they try to avoid each other. But passion is a very strong emotion and like magnets it makes it almost impossible to stay apart.
PERFECT FIT is a wonderful read about learning to trust again with your head and your heart, and as with Ms. Jackson's other works her characters are delightfully human. So if a warm, endearing story is what you want I recommend you try this one on for size.
