Review ~ When Lightning Strikes by Brenda Novak

When Lightning Strikes (Whiskey Creek, #1)When Lightning Strikes by Brenda Novak

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Simon and Gail, two people no one would ever consider couple material end up having to marry for survival. However, it really turns out that they are both so well suited. Simon is a very famous and handsome movie star and Gail was his publicist. She’s straight laced and he’s as bad boy as you can get. But Simon’s had some really bad luck, and Gail truly cares for him.

There’s so much more involved with that scenario above, but I don’t want to give anything away.
The story was done well and was very in-depth, well, until we got to the end. Then it sort of went quickly and ended. The epilogue should have had more meat about Gail and Simon in it.

But, all in all, it was a really good story.


Simon O’Neal’s causing trouble again. And it’s up to Gail DeMarco to stop him.

Gail DeMarco left Whiskey Creek, California, to make a name for herself in Los Angeles. Her PR firm has accumulated a roster of A-list clients, including the biggest box office hit of all—sexy and unpredictable Simon O’Neal. But Simon, who’s just been through a turbulent divorce, is so busy self-destructing he won’t listen to anything she says. She drops him from her list—and he retaliates by taking the rest of her clients with him.

Desperate to save her company, Gail has to humble herself by making a deal with Simon. The one thing he wants is custody of his son, but that’s going to require a whole new image. He needs to marry some squeaky-clean girl who’ll drag him off to some small, obscure place like Whiskey Creek….

Gail’s the only one he can trust. She agrees to become his wife—reluctantly. But she isn’t reluctant because he’s too hard to like. It’s because he’s too hard not to love!
