Jane Morgan is trying to do what it
takes to make sure that her prim and proper office manager
persona stays intact. She doesnít want anyone to connect
her with the wild child of her youth, and especially doesnít
want anyone to know her father was in prison. She is dating
all the right men; doctors, dentists, attorneys but why
donít they make her think of forever after in bed? None of
them seem to be able to hold her interest or even star in
her dreams. Well, not like Chase the tattoo-covered
steel-toed boot wearing contractor who saunters into the
office where she works.
Chase, for all his gruff exterior,
seems to have developed a soft spot for Jane and while she
keeps turning him down he persists. When she decides to
give herself one fantasy filled night with Chase he takes
what he can get, and then decides that there is more to Jane
than what she shows the world.
When Janeís brother becomes a murder
suspect and her ex-boyfriend wonít help, she will take all
the help she can get. And this help comes in the form of
Chase but, she is determined to walk away from him when it
is all over. Except Chase doesnít give up much without a
I am a huge fan of the Tumble Creek
series with all of its contrasts between the large city of
Aspen and the small town vibe of Tumble Creek. I think Ms.
Dahl has definitely been able to pull off the feel of
dichotomy of the different living experiences.
In Lead Me On you are
able to look into the life of the well loved prim and proper
Jane Morgan, who, if you have read the previous two books,
will be a character you remember. I absolutely love what
Ms. Dahl has done with the character of Jane with the
back-story as well as with her interactions with Chase.
While I was a little perturbed with how much of a witch she
was with Chase, I love how the author has turned Lead
Me On into a love story that you can see will stand
the test of time. I am pleased to Joyfully Recommend
Lead Me On in either print or audio formats.
Lead Me On was another
well put together audio offering from HQN books. As usual
the reader does a great job with the different characters
and does not pull from the story but in fact adds to it.
