When Dawn Clark, runs into Mike McDonald and his old beat up pickup truck with her Mercedes SL 500, the sparks immediately begin to fly. Dawn is used to men falling all over themselves to be near her and her father’s money, but this one refuses to play the game and is even intentionally irritating. In her eyes, he is just a common laborer doing carpentry work on her father’s new barn and he should be jumping to fulfill her every whim, but he doesn’t seem to be awed by her beauty or her father’s money.
Matters get even worse when not long after her first “run in” with that common laborer, Dawn’s father loses all of his money and she is forced to do something she has never had to do in her life—work; and at the same place the rude and irritating carpenter works. Her redheaded temper and his nonchalant attitude toward her, combined with his willingness to "light her fire" at every opportunity, make for a roller coaster ride.
There are some surprising twists and turns along the way that make this book more than just your ordinary “boy meets girl” story.
