Just What He Wanted by HelenKay Dimon
This is Book 4 in the author's "Holloway" series but it is only the first book I've read by this author. In spite of that, I was able to to follow and enjoy the story. Andrea "Andie" Patterson was hired by the Holloway family to manage a campground. Travis Yardley is an employee for the Holloway family and at a young age was welcomed and absorbed into the family. They decide to send Travis to go and check on things up at the campground to make sure that Andie is not too overwhelmed and check if she needs anything. Andie & Travis have an inauspicious first meeting. Travis says a few dopey, badly timed things because Andie's beauty strikes him stupid. Travis's behavior is baffling to Andie. She is immediately attracted to Travis but she figures they would never hook up. She believes he is too young and she is also insecure about her looks, in spite of being a strong woman in every other respect. I liked both characters a lot, and found their issues added depth - Andie with her body image issues, and Travis with his raw wounds about his biological family. I loved how Travis pursued Andie & I loved how they both were able to teach each other something.I look forward to reading more books by this author.
