A FLING MIGHT BE JUST THE THING...

Gavin Donnigan left the Marine Corps a shell of a man, hounded by guilt for deaths he couldn't prevent. But teaching a self-defense class at the local gym brings some stability to his life―along with a gorgeous leggy woman who won't give him the time of day.

Zoe York lost her twin sister to a freak car accident a few months ago. She's been struggling to bury her grief, but it isn't until she signs up for a self-defense class with its distractingly hot instructor that she begins to come out of her shell again. With the memory of her sister telling her to live a little, Zoe decides a fling with buns-of-steel Gavin Donnigan might be just the thing.

Soon they're sparring both in and out of the gym. And for the first time in a long time, each is looking forward to tomorrow.

Re: Just The Thing

It doesn't have to be in every one but it is nice for a
change up.
(Tammy VanScoy 3:18pm July 12, 2017)

I think that there needs to be some sort of conflict or angst in a story to
keep it interesting.
(
Leanna Hiner 4:20pm July 12, 2017)

yes, angst is an important component and adds to the emotions
and the story.
(
Sharon Berger 5:22pm July 12, 2017)

I like variety in my romances and yes having to deal with things whether mentally or physically adds to the storyline for me.
(
Colleen Conklin 6:21pm July 12, 2017)

I think angst is important because it tests the relationship
and they become stronger as a couple.
(
Kv H 2:21am July 13, 2017)

Some angst is necessary for some stories to advance. As long
as it's not the entire story, it's fine. BTW, as a mother of
twins, this book rings a bell.
(
Kathleen Bylsma 5:54pm July 13, 2017)

If not angst, then danger, conflict or something equally
interesting.
(
Nancy Krueger 6:15pm July 14, 2017)

How good would the story be if everything was perfect?
There's got to be angst or some obstacle to overcome to
make the story interesting.
(
Tanja Dancy 10:46pm July 14, 2017)

Not really. Too much takes you back to HS.
(
Samantha Tennant 11:24pm July 14, 2017)

There needs to be some conflict but not too much that it
takes away from the story.
(
Debra Guyette 5:42am July 15, 2017)

A story like life can not be perfect.
(
Ron Frampton 2:07pm July 16, 2017)

Love never comes easy!
(
Jane Cavanaugh 2:59pm July 16, 2017)

I don't like drama and just want everyone to get along. I
dislike all the arguing. Not a fan of the A word.
(
Nicole Davis 9:19pm July 16, 2017)

I don't think it's necessary in all romances - even though
there is a lot of it in real life
(
Glenda Martillotti 10:47pm July 16, 2017)

I don't think angst is needed in every romance but a bit of conflict to reflect real life makes the stories more interesting.
(
Anita H 4:24am July 17, 2017)

I think a small amount of angst in a romance can add to the story, but don't like it in my own life.
(
Anna Speed 12:17pm July 17, 2017)

Even in the funniest books, there is a little conflict. Not necessarily angst.
(
Phyllis Lamken 12:45pm July 17, 2017)
