Penelope Porter thinks she wants to get
back together with her ex. It would be comfortable and this
time, it might work. But when Penelopeís puppy escapes and
brings Dylan Mersey into her life, her feelings surprise
her. Sheís not usually the kind of person to have an
instant, white-hot attraction with someone, especially
someone with a dark past, but something about Dylan speaks
Dylan is trying to make a fresh start
in life. Heís in a new town, with a new business and he
wants to keep his life clean. But an old friend asks a
favor of him, and he canít say no. He feels like he canít
get away from his past, and when the beautiful and put
together Penelope comes into his life, he canít help but
think that nothing good can come of it. He wants her, but
how can he even think of letting someone so innocent into
his not-so-innocent life?
Bedtime for Bonsai is a
sweet story with just enough edge and sex to keep it from
being sentimental. The characters are all well-drawn and
are the kind of people you want to be friends with.
Penelopeís feelings about her ex and Dylan ring true.
Dylanís past doesnít get whitewashed and his struggle to
turn his life around is handled with honesty. There is a
particularly well written dinner party scene told from both
Penís and Dylanís perspective that shows the differences in
their backgrounds, while still showing how well they work
together. A great book for any romance lover.
