Heat Factor: I mean, there are handcuffs in the first few pages.
Character Chemistry: Steamy, steamy, and with a shared trauma that they turn into something really good.
Plot: Bernie’s childhood haven is being sold by her horrible uncle, who is the mentor of TV landscaper Eli Zorn. When the property is selected by Eli’s show to be rehabbed, Bernie handcuffs herself to the house and refuses to leave. Eli needs the rehab for his career; Bernie needs the house for her nonprofit. WHAT WILL HAPPEN??
Overall: This series rocks, and #2 is just as strong as #1.
