I’ve always been Miranda Phillips, the town pariah. Growing up with neglectful parents, having sought attention from all the guys that were willing to give it to me, I wasn’t the most well-behaved kid in Lone Star. Not to mention all of the juvenile delinquent acts I’ve committed in my past.
But now I am Lone Star’s only reporter and I’ve come a long way from being that lost, troubled girl. Even if most of the town still judged me for it. I don’t allow anyone to get in the way of what I want. Including Ryan John. So when I corner him in a dark hallway and get him to succumb to the sizzling attraction between us, I know I’m playing with fire.
I’ve successfully avoided her for two months but I haven’t forgotten how she tastes or what she feels like in my arms. And when I get sent a mysterious letter from some company wanting to buy my thousand shares of water rights that have been in my family for over a hundred years, I’m convinced that there is no one…err, better equipped, to help me than Lone Star’s reporter, Miranda Phillips.
I know how desperately she wants me and this letter gives me all the reason I need to spend one night with the girl from the wrong side of town. One night in exchange for her tight investigative skills. And believe me, she’s tight, in more ways than one. Just one night. Because Miranda is trouble and being on the city council, as well as guardian to my younger brother and sister, means I can’t afford trouble.
Even if it comes packaged just the way I like.
Wet is definitely a romance adult novel centered between town harlot Miranda and Ryan, a man raising his brother and sister and working on the town council. There is an underlying storyline of Ryan’s life raising his brother and sister and some mysterious corporation wanting to buy his land rights. Otherwise, there are plenty, and I mean plenty of intimate scenes between the two main characters; boy do they have chemistry. The pun-ish title works in two ways, it could be a reference to the intimate relations between the two main characters but it also works in relation to Ryan’s land and water rights which a corporation wishes to buy. This book is told in alternating chapters from Miranda and Ryan’s perspectives.
In the small town of Lone Star Miranda’s wild teenage ways have come to give her a loose reputation, which Miranda doesn’t mind as a reporter, unless men get the wrong impression. Ryan has worked keep his reputation spotless and maintain his position on the town council for his brother and sister. When he gets involved with Miranda though, all bets are off. The concept of opposites attract is explored here and these two really heat up the pages.
Overall, this book was chock-full of steamy scenes with an underlying storyline which kept the plot moving. The characters were interesting and three dimensional.
