Grace has lived through the toughest year of her life. With a family crisis behind her, she is ready to usher in the New Year with a new resolve. A routine end-of-the year dinner turns into a night of wild bravado. With the urging of her best friend, she creates a Bucket List, placing Mardi Gras at the very top! Grace plans on cutting a few things loose on this road trip, starting with her inhibitions. That is until Brett “The Wolf” McAllister accidently gets hold of her list.

The sexy former pro-wrestler has been attracted to Grace since she became his accountant several years ago. However, Grace has a strict rule against mixing business with pleasure. Brett’s been biding his time, slowly worming his way into her life. When he gets a look at her Bucket List, all hell breaks loose. Not only does she plan on flashing for beads, but she also plans on having a one-night-stand! There’s just no way in hell he’s going to let that happen.

When Grace’s best friend has to cancel at the last minute, Brett is ready to breathe a sigh of relief, but seeing Grace’s disappointment has him playing the court jester as he volunteers to take her to Mardi Gras. Something tells him things won’t be so easy in the ‘Big Easy’!

 

Review:  They call Ms. Fyer the arsonist for a reason! Sizzling, unique, with a blend of humor and realness, The Bucket List was a read I couldn’t put down! Her characters were well fleshed out, interesting and flawed. Down to earth, number crunching account Grace has been hurt in the past and has no plans to repeat the experience. So, she fights her attraction to her handsome client turned friend, Brett McAllister. The ex wrestler allows her to keep him at arm’s length while he tries to get her to see there’s more, until he spies the list.  The Bucket List written after a few too many lists is the catalyst to a firey passion that’ll had me hot under the collar. *fans face.

This fresh, fast paced, romance is a must read. Ms. Fyer’s vivid writing and spot on chemistry between the heroine and hero will make have you longing to read another one of her stories.
