Read, Write, Love (Love in Bloom #14) by Melissa Foster

Bestselling author Kurt Remington lives to write. He spends twelve hours a day in front of his computer, rarely leaving the seclusion of his beach-front property, where he's come to finish his latest thriller--that is, until free-spirited Leanna Bray nearly drowns in the ocean trying to save her dog. Kurt's best-laid plans are shot to hell when he comes to their rescue. Kurt's as irritated as he is intrigued by the sexy, hot mess of a woman who lives life on a whim, forgets everything, and doesn't even know the definition of the word organized.

Leanna's come to the Cape hoping to find a fulfilling career in the jam-making business, and until she figures out her own life, a man is not on the menu. But Leanna can't get the six-two, deliciously muscled and tragically neat Kurt out of her mind. She tells herself she's just stopping by to say thank you, but the steamy afternoon sparks a wild and sexy ride as Kurt and Leanna test the powers of Chemistry 101: Opposites Attract.


Overall Rating:  4.5 Rockin’ ★★★

Kurt Remington has a well-planned, peaceful, structured life until one day he meets a “free spirit” named Leanna Bray. He finds his life turned upside down and inside out and knows that it will never be the same again. Kurt rescues Leanna’s dog from drowning and he finds himself unable to keep from thinking about her.  This is not usual for Kurt, he is a planner and sticks to a schedule.  Leanna cannot even find her cell phone! She can’t stop from admiring the beautiful man that rescued her Pepper.
How was he supposed to concentrate on writing a dark thriller with a wet dog and an insanely sexy woman in the room? Her clothes clung to every curve of her womanly body, and it had taken all his focus to look away.  And she was cute, too. Damn cute, the way she fought him to save that …dog. Pepper.
Two people that are unlikely lovers find themselves unable to stay apart.  She owns a “Happy mobile,” a VW van and he drives a Mercedes convertible!  He is a clean freak and she just lives! 
“I mean, look at the thing.  Can you really look at it and not smile.”He couldn’t look at her without smiling.  “No, I guess I can’t.”
It doesn’t take Kurt long to realize that he want Leanna in his life.  Even with her disorganization and carefree ways, there is so much joy within her that he is drawn like a moth to a flame.
Three words lay on the tip of his tongue, and he held them back.  Trapped them in his mind like butterflies under glass, where they flapped and fluttered, trying to set their magnificence free.  They hadn’t known each other long enough for him to even think the three words that, when strung together and spoken from the heart, were the three most significant words in the English language,…
Kurt wants all of Leanna and he knows that she feels the same way about him, so what is the next step?  Move in together, attend a family wedding together?  Will Leanna’s new business adventure keep their dream of being together from happening?  Kurt and Leanna must make some decisions about their future.
“I’ve written less, but I’ve never enjoyed my life more than I have this past week with you, Leanna.  If this is what it feels like to live in an upside-down world, then I never want to be right-side up.”
