Actress Sophie Birch is used to having to look out for herself. So when her theater catches fire and a big guy scoops her up into his arms to save her, she's going to fight every step of the way. Even if he's a cop. And really sexy. And his arms feel oh-so-good.
Finn Kelly can't help but appreciate how good the woman in his arms looks in her sexy pink lingerie. Even if she's currently resisting arrest.
But as the two get to know each other, they're both surprised by the things Finn is willing to do to get closer to her. And when Sophie's estranged father arrives in town and starts causing trouble, the stage is set for disaster...unless Finn can convince her that, for once in her life, she has someone to lean on.
Nicholas's third Opposites Attract contemporary (after Forever Mine) is moving and inspiring. Actress Sophie Birch has always been a pawn in her father's schemes for financial security. She started acting at a young age after her mother died, has had five stepmothers, and was constantly moved around. She's up for her biggest role yet when police officer Finn Kelly saves her from her burning theater. Sophie's dad, who's a part owner of the theater, steals the insurance money, so Finn and his family help renovate the building, as acting there is Sophie's only source of income. Despite her distrust of families, she quickly bonds with the boisterous, close-knit clan, which is led by a clever matriarch. Just when she thinks she can finally be a part of a real family, Sophie's father tries to tear her and Finn apart. Nicholas successfully weaves the two families together while addressing their issues realistically, and Sophie and Finn grow together without sacrificing their own identities.

Finn had no idea what the play was called or what it was about, but it explained the cow, he hoped. This is how the story started and how can you not snort at that line. The dialogue, both internal and between characters continues in this fun way. Finn and Sophie are great characters and their collection of family and friends support and enhance them except for her father. This part of the story I did not like and although it does explain some of her reluctance in forming relationships I actually was a little bored with him and their relationship and I saw where this as going. However, I was happy that she was up front about her dad ( and avoided all those typical storyline plots) Fin and Sophie's chemistry was hot, their first time together was seriously scorching. The story overall was fun.
