It was a chance meeting, a spontaneous, hot moment, a never-to-be-repeated encounter. So when the gorgeous redhead he knows only as Sugar walks into the bar and heads straight for him, Doug “Dooley” Miller knows he’s in trouble. But he’s sure not going to mind.
She needs a date to some swanky something-or-other. He’s a fish-sticks-and-denim guy, but for a woman who’s not afraid to get naughty in an elevator, he can stand a couple days of smoked salmon and Armani.
Morgan James admits she doesn’t really know Doug, but she needs him to keep her mind—and hands—off her ex. A man who, despite the fact he stole her ideas, she’s afraid could charm her into repeating her mistakes. Only Doug can make her forget the weasel exists. Besides, it’s just this one time.
What started as not even a one-night stand has Dooley feeling things that he’s never felt before. And that’s outside of the bedroom. Don’t even get him started on what’s happening between the sheets. Why does he have a feeling that, as far as flings go, they’re doing something wrong? Then again, if they’re falling in love, they might just be getting that right.
This series seems to have two names The Bradfords and Everyday Heroes. The stories revolve around the Bradford family, their community center, doctors, nurses and paramedics. The whole circle of families and friends and their continuing support of each other make this series so special to me.
Just for Fun was sort of a fake relationship trope, which is one of my favorites. The couple gets to try on a relationship without worrying about commitment but then one or both usually really likes the other. Dooley (Doug) and Morgan meet at a fundraiser and have a sexy evening. They each have some misconceptions about each other and also about their own lives.
Their growth and what they learn about themselves and each other is an emotional journey. I laughed and cried. The ending was crazy and awesome. I’m all in for Kevin’s story, Just A Kiss at the end of February, a second chance romance.
Karen White did an amazing job with this one. The humor in the dialogue was performed expertly. I can mostly recognize the different characters’ voices a bit now in the series. I was able to listen comfortably at 1.5x speed which is new for me.
